Allen West: Women In Combat Is A “Foray” Into An “Equality Trip”
And what kind of nut would want an “equality trip” for women?
“I have to tell you, if this is the case, then why do we have separate hockey leagues?” West said on CNN. “Women should be out there playing ice hockey with the guys in the NHL. We should not have a WNBA. I can’t shoot a three-pointer, but there are ladies who could certainly take me to the hoop. Maybe they should be competing with Kobe Bryant.”
The former congressman and Iraq veteran blasted the “social experiment” earlier in the day on his Facebook page, suggesting that women could not be as effective soldiers as men. He warned that opening front-line positions to women “could potentially lead to the demise of our military.”
