Reality Check; Kagan’s mistreatment of our military at Harvard and her double standard

Army Reserve Captain Pete Hegseth is Executive Director of Vets for Freedom and was a Platoon Commander in Iraq with the 3rd Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division from 2005-2006. Currently he’s working on his Master’s Degree at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Captain Hegseth gave testimony on Thursday before the Senate about Elena Kagan’s treatment of military recruiters at Harvard;

During his testimony, Hegseth detailed several of Kagan’s actions or non-actions that seem inconsistent with her decision to keep the military out of Harvard’s recruitment office because of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He pointed out that Kagan welcomed to Harvard many congressman who voted for the law, and that the law school took money from Saudi Arabia, where being a homosexual is punishable by death.

“Rather than confront the Congressional source of the policy – or take a stand against a country that executes homosexuals – Ms. Kagan zeroed in on military recruiters for a policy they neither authored, nor emphasized,” Hegseth said in his testimony.

Caleb nails it at the end, there really is nothing to add except confirm her and be remembered in infamy for your vote.
