The Navy is Going to Name a Ship What??
On July 14 Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus indicated he intended to name a new command fleet oiler after homosexual activist and known pedophile Harvey Milk! This came as a result of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passing a resolution in 2012 calling on Mabus to name a ship after Milk. In the late 70’s Milk served on the Board of Supervisors for less than a year before he and the Mayor were shoot and killed by a former disgruntled employee.

Secretary Mabus has already created some controversy with the names of ships he has chosen in the past. Among his choices have been farm labor organizer Cesar Chavez and former Representative Gabrielle Giffords, the Arizona Democrat who survived being shot in the head at a campaign event in 2011. In January he named a ship after Representative John Lewis; you remember the guy who led the Democrat sit-in on June 22nd demanding a vote on a gun control measure that they had already lost!
Should a United States ship bear the name of a man who targeted underage boys and young men for his sexual gratification? Such a move would be a slap in the face of every man and woman who ever served, fought and died for this nation!
