On Wednesday, Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s office tried to walk back statements the Alabama Republican made about white nationalists serving in the military.
“Do you believe they should allow white nationalists in the military?” Tuberville was asked. “Well, they call them that. I call them Americans,” Tuberville said.
Tuberville’s office issued a statement Wednesday to AL.com to clarify the senator’s comments.
“Sen. Tuberville’s quote that is cited shows that he was being skeptical of the notion that there are white nationalists in the military, not that he believes they should be in the military,” the statement from a spokesperson said. “He believes the men and women in uniform are patriots. (Defense) Secretary (Lloyd) Austin seems to think otherwise, subjecting them to extremism training as his very first act in office. That cost us four million man-hours.”
And then reporters asked Tuberville to explain his remarks.
On Thursday, reporters in the Capitol pressed Tuberville on his comments. He told them that “you can’t have racists” on any team, and he claimed it’s Democrats who are the problem, accusing them of painting all Trump supporters as white nationalists.
“The Democrats characterize all MAGA Republicans in the military as white nationalists, wrong. Wrong. OK?” Tuberville told reporters Thursday. “We can’t get politics in the military. This has nothing to do with extremists.”
So, Tuberville immediately thought that white nationalists would be considered MAGA Republicans. That’s an incredible self-own.
Tuberville should know that the military has been plagued with a rise in white supremacy. His walk back makes it worse. The question was simple:
“Do you believe they should allow white nationalists in the military?” The correct answer would be, “No.”
That assclown has single-handedly blocked critical Department of Defense nominations over a disagreement with Pentagon policies.
