On Tuesday, the committee held a hearing about “extremism in the military” and what to do about any perceived “hate speech” or wrong think within the ranks.
When it was his turn to speak, the Florida congressman began by noting that he represents the district that has the highest concentration of active duty military in the country.
“Respectfully, it is on their behalf that I would categorize this hearing as total nonsense,” Rep. Gaetz asserted. “Today, the Chinese Communist Party is building aircraft carriers and jets that every member of this committee knows threaten to close or eliminate the capability gap. North Korea is perfecting the ability to strike the United States with nuclear weapons. Cartels are hunting the next trafficking routes.”
