Hawley Slams Democrats On Female Draft

He killed it. Good.

Democrats are notoriously confused over gender. So the thought of a nation compelling moms, wives, and daughters to join the military is par for the course for them. It stands to reason, as their knowledge of both the family and the military leaves much to be desired. Senator Josh Hawley, Republican of Missouri, understands that. That’s why he led the fight against a female draft.

FNC: “Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., praised reports that drafting women had been removed from the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Monday, but warned that the Left’s apparent gender obsession is endangering national security.

‘I think this is tremendous news,’ Hawley told Fox News Digital regarding the compromise defense policy legislation that will not require women to file for the military draft. A House panel voted 35-24 on Sept. 1 to approve an amendment introduced by Rep. Chrissy Houlahan, D-Pa., that would effectively require women ages 18-25 to register for the Selective Service System like their male counterparts. The Senate Armed Services Committee made a similar vote in July to expand any potential draft to women.”

“This is obviously something I fought since the committee stage,” Hawley said of the female draft. “I forced a vote in the committee on this provision and forced a roll call vote on it and have obviously been prepared to force a vote on the same provision on the Senate floor…I think that this is a big victory for common sense. And I’m glad to have helped lead the charge on this.

“The Left clearly has made this culture war their priority across a lot of fronts,” he continued. “I just think it’s unbelievable. And it really shows that they have been hijacked by these cultural issues…They’re trying to create a culture war and I think it’s one that they are going to lose because the American people like our culture.” Well, a bit of it any way.

“I’m not in favor of using the military as a social experiment. And I think they need to get back to focusing on defensive security issues when it comes to our military…I just think the Biden administration is projecting weakness everywhere,” Hawley said. “I think our enemies see that, and they see a president who cannot lead…We’re seeing our enemies emboldened and thinking that they can take advantage of a very weak administration and a very weak president. That’s dangerous…I think what is plain for everybody to see is that the administration and the Left are more focused on their gender issues and on their culture war issues than they are on actual national security issues…We’ve got a lot of security threats, and they’re growing worse and the Biden administration is making them worse,” Hawley concluded.
