Robert J. O’Neill is a former U.S. Navy Seal who was part of Operation Neptune Spear with Seal Team Six that killed Osama bin Laden. So when he has a point to make about his former branch of service, people listen.
When word leaked out of the Navy’s deployment of an active duty drag queen as a “Navy Digital Ambassador,” O’Neill did not take it well.
Joshua Kelley performs in drag under the stage name Harpy Daniels and identifies as non-binary.
O’Neill, a highly decorated veteran with eight years of service with Seal Team Six, reacted by tweeting that he cannot believe that he “fought for this bull****.”
He added, “Alright. The U.S. Navy is now using an enlisted sailor Drag Queen as a recruiter. I’m done. China is going to destroy us.” And he was far from the only military veteran who expressed their disgust at the newly woke armed forces.
The U.S. Navy hired an active-duty drag queen to be the face of their recruitment drive.
Oh yes, let's terrify our enemies by filling the military with cross-dressers. China is definitely looking at this and saying, "We can't mess with these guys and girls and theys and thems." pic.twitter.com/Ma1YXkWxL9

Kurt Schlichter, a retired Army colonel who is now a columnist for Townhall.com, said the country is lined up to “lose the next war.” He recounted that his Navy father would have been “appalled” at this latest revelation.
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) a retired Navy rear admiral, asked “Who on EARTH would be persuaded to join after watching” Kelley’s drag videos that went viral after the news broke.
Jackson tweeted that “Biden’s SICK SICK SICK woke agenda for our military needs to END NOW!!”
One woman wrote, “My dad just rolled over in his grave at Arlington. I’m so glad he didn’t have to see this happen.” Another user posted, “I’m sure China is terrified.”
Kelley, the non-binary drag queen, posted a new TikTok video on Tuesday with a profane message for those critical of his role in the Navy. He categorized the posting as his “first rebuttal.”
He responded to podcaster Graham Allen’s tweet that the current military is “not the same military I served under” and that the enemies of the U.S. are laughing at us. Kelley said “you want to tear down service members and use my content without a tag.”
He further slammed Allen for only wanting to support the military “when it benefits you and doesn’t involve queer people.” Seems that Bud Light and the U.S. Navy are in the same sinking boat.
