Media criticizes Mattis for sailor talk

| August 20, 2017 | 99 Comments

The other day, Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave a pep talk to sailors at Naval Base Kitsap, Washington. He encouraged them to stay in the Navy, and he told them;

So thanks for sticking with the Navy. For those on your first — (inaudible) — you can get out the Navy after — (inaudible). You’ll still miss it. You’ll miss it like the dickens, and you’ll be changed for the better for the rest of your life. So you’ll never regret, but you will have some of the best days of your life and some of the worst days of your life in the U.S. Navy, you know what I mean?

That says — that means you’re living. That means you’re living.

That means you’re not some pussy sitting on the sidelines, you know what I mean, kind of sitting there saying, “Well, I should have done something with my life.” Because of what you’re doing now, you’re not going to be laying on a shrink’s couch when you’re 45 years old, say “What the hell did I do with my life?” Why? Because you served others; you served something bigger than you.

So, of course, the pussies started whining. NBC News called it a “disparaging term”;

Mattis wouldn’t be the first member of the executive branch to make vulgar comments. Trump used the same obscenity in a 2005 conversation that was caught on tape and unearthed in October.

The Washington Post‘s Dan Lamothe calls him “vulgar”;

Channeling salty icons like Army Gen. George S. Patton “has its place,” but the term Mattis used “clearly implied that those who don’t serve are less manly than those who do,” [retired Col. Don Christensen] said.

From NBCNewYork;

Defense Secretary James Mattis praised Navy sailors for their service earlier this month and used an obscenity to make his point….

The Free Beacon notes other pussies, I mean media, who took offense;

Newsweek likewise complained that “Defense Secretary Suggests Civilians Are ‘Pussies’ for Sitting on the Sidelines.”

“Donald Trump’s secretary of defense James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis appeared to suggest those who did not serve the country were ‘a bunch of pussies,'” read the lede.

Yeah, well, if the shoe fits….

He’s the Secretary of Defense, not the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

    Let’s just see some of those pussified fake media mongers challenge General Mattis, to his face.

    What a bunch of fucking sissies–Briana Williams not withstanding.

  9. James Sandecker says:

    pussy is not an obscenity unless you are a cunt of a sparkle pony.


    Well said….. The military needs then to be dicks anyhow.
    Dicks,To fuck the assholes of the world and the lib pussies at home, when they need it. Especially when said pussies become so full of shit that they may as well be assholes themselves.
    Pardon me, as I write Stone and Parker a royalty cheque.


    Obviously, those who have never served are less manly and tough.( service women are just more tough) 😉

    Thanks to libtards, the soon to be men of western nations have become pussified and soft.
    Ooops…..I mean more sensitive and empathetic


    Pretty soon, Rainbow jumpsuits will replace CADPAT/ACU’s and we will offer counselling and hugs to jihadis instead of FMJ’s and HE.
    I shudder……

  13. timactual says:

    Mattis is just following in the footsteps of other exalted politicians. For a little perspective—

  14. NEC338x says:

    I note that these annoited, know-everything, ‘journalists’ relied on a released PAO transcript as the basis of their outrage. They can show up anytime they want and throw thei clarifying questions to SECDEF Matiis face to face. Not holding my breath, of course.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      THOSE sniveling snot-nosed candyassed metrosexuals would piss their britches and FAINT the first time SECDEF CHAOS gave them a knifehand.

    • desert says:

      Those media types know they are pussified snowflakes, they just think WE don’t know it, thats what makes them mad! Mattis left out the part about non serving kids/young adults are immature, not real bright (or hide it) and don’t know the meaning of responsibility! And yes, many are frigging cowards…I can’t move out of mama’s basement…all my “stuff” is there lol You also have the kind that hide behind going to college and learning the NEA’s communist manifesto first hand!

  15. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Well Gen. Mattis just out trumped the trump on his salty comments. Only one egg yolk this morning, but no ham, so it’s just one yolk to put out on the comment.

  16. old98z says:

    Most veterans I know use “pussies” with a special nuance of disdain.
    I imagine most civilians don’t know or care.
    This is a non issue except for those who try to drum up outrage – and ironically out themselves as pussies.

  17. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Media = PUSSIES!

  18. Phil says:

    I kind of agree. Pussy is a terrible choice. I personally haven’t met a pussy that I didn’t like. Bitches…

  19. Poetrooper says:

    Let’s see, we’ve got a bunch of pussies complaining about another bunch of pussies being referenced as pussies and the pussies all have their panties in a wad?

    I’m so confused. Where’s that pussy Lars to straighten this mess out for us?

  20. The Other Whitey says:

    Seems like the only ones who thought his words were offensive to anyone are the giant pussies.

  21. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Media WUSSIES just have to WUSS very chance they get.

  22. JimV says:

    Wait a minute, I like Kitties. 🐱🐱🐱

    What’s wrong with that?

  23. Toasty Coastie says:

    All we can do is hope those whinny little pussie snowflakes look at the eclipse tomorrow without eye protection and melt.

    As far as that Sparkle Pony, Santorum Stained, Unfortunate Shaped Phallic Hedge Daniel Bernath goes, I hope the judge throws the book at him wrapped in a pair of molting muskrat panties.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      What do you have against books, TC, that you would want one punished by contact with him? Or were you thinking of cheap, trashy pron like 50 Shades of Utter Crap?

      • Toasty Coastie says:

        Forgive me Ex…I did indeed mean “cheap, trashy pron like 50 Shades of Utter Crap”. I couldn’t recall the full name so I opted for the pussy way of doing things and just generalized…..I do however, have a great love of books. Currently its the Outlander series.
        I will need some recommendations though as surgery has been scheduled for October 23 and then part 4 will be November 8.

        Well crap, do you think I’ll get sentenced to more hospital time than Birdbath will get at the Grey Bar Hotel? I tell you, that would not be right at all. Well maybe not so bad…it would give me time to work on my creative insulting lol 😀

  24. Ex-PH2 says:

    Wait a minute. Where is the biggest pussie of all in this? Dave Hardin has not checked in and spouted his $.005 worth.

    Should I send GEN Mattis a fan letter?

  25. Forest Green says:

    “When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend, because she knows she’s dating a pussy”
    ― General James N. Mattis

  26. W2 says:

    The Navy Crimes article has a photo of Chaos giving his pep talk. Right in front of him is some fat body first class with his arms crossed. How Chaos controlled himself and did not knife hand fat boy to death is beyond me.

  27. SFC D says:

    Were the Sailors in the audience offended? No? Then everyone else can just fuck right off.

    • Bill M says:

      I would hazard a guess, just off the top of my head, that GEN Mattis’ reference received a hearty guffaw from those present. Any who didn’t should join the ranks of the pussy media types.

  28. Bill R. says:

    “clearly implied that those who don’t serve are less manly than those who do,”

    Yes, even our female members of the services are tougher than most of the pussies in the press.

    • STSC(SW/SS) says:

      When I was stationed in Norfolk Tugs were used to help dock. Some of the Tugs had Female Bosuns with some serious guns from all the line handling. So yes the women would be a lot tougher than those skid stains called the media.

  29. AnotherPat says:

    But he said “dickens”!

    Whoops…I used the word “but”.

    My bad.

    When is this madness ever going to stop? Does this mean one can’t listen to Tom Jones belt out “What’s New, Pussy Cat” or we can’t watch reruns of Josie and the Pussy Cats or James Bond with Pussy Galore or hear Tweety Bird state ” Bad ole Putty Cat”?

    Did I leave any other “offending” word? Seem to remember Hondo had a post about the male anatomy a while back. And now it is this.

    First the Flag. Then the statues. And now this😾🐱.

    But it’s ok for some folks to call our Law Enforcement “Pigs”.

    The reporters/newspapers are grasping for straws. Anything to bring the Trump Administration down.

    What a bunch of LOSERS.

    • AnotherPat says:

      And what about the pink “Pussy Hats” worn this year during the Woman’s March? Did we hear a peep from the news media about that?

      What a bunch of Dickweeds…I mean Dickenweeds…or maroons.

  30. Deplorable B Woodman says:

    So…..? General Mattis said “pussy” as a derogatory term (look it up if you don’t know what that means, twink).
    And your point is….? Besides the one on top of your head…?

  31. jdm says:

    LOL!! Hey pussies umm it fits!

  32. Mark RM1 USN, ret. says:

    Fuck the MSM PUSSIES! There, got that off my chest.

  33. Ex-PH2 says:

    Here’s a somewhat relative bit of astrological feedback on that:

    Neptune stationary direct?
    Translation: effective media brainwashing!

    Does that sound familiar? It should. It is what is going on now, in the form of a feeding frenzy by the media. Anything they think they can sink their teeth into and shake until its head falls off is their target.

    As for the use of ‘vulgar’ in – are you kidding me?????

    This comes from someone who is part of an entire generation of people who have zero manners, can barely speak their native tongue – ENGLISH, fer Pete’s sake – and have to watch someone else at a dinner party to see which fork to pick up first, and potty-mouthed????? They could probably make GEN Mattis blush.

  34. Bill Bennett says:

    Sand Crabs. The workers who crawl onto the naval base in the morning and off in the afternoon. Have an opinion on all kinds of fighting but haven’t been there, done that or ever will. Pussies will just lay in the rack and scratch their crabs. Lots of opinions, no action. Just a bunch of opinionated rascals, generally with an absence of gonads and backbone. Not fags but not Swartzneggers either. Pussies sounds like all these newscasters, minor politicos and crap-o-crats who know not what but are authorities on it all.

  35. FatCircles0311 says:

    Oh so this week pussies is obscene? Somebody should inform those leftist pussies that have been using it for their “protests” among legit other obscene things they’ve been doing for decades. How hilarious that these pussies would suddenly feign outrage.

    Pussies gonna pussy.

  36. Thunderstixx says:

    So, I take it that we are pretty much in agreement with General Mad Dog Mattis on his assessment of the male status of your neighborhood prancing man bun… (I forget who coined that term, but I like it and use it all the time here at manboibuncentral, Austin TX)
    I just can’t help but laugh when I see them prancing around the campus and downtown areas…
    I make fun of them all the time, and they deserve it.

  37. mr. sharkman says:

    If a guy was 35 on 11SEP01, and married with 2 young kids and didn’t enlist…no shame. No shame at all.

    What really bugs the fvck out of me is when some loudmouth at the bar, now 35 and single his entire life, is rocking ‘Al-Q hunting club’ stickers on his big truck…and he drove by recruiting offices for the last 16 years.

    As the saying goes…’Everyone wants to be a warrior until it’s time to do warrior sh1t’.

    • CPT11A says:

      Back when I was 2LT11A, I used to post on a gun rights forum with a serious libertarian bent. There was a guy on there, not a day of military service, who had a .50 mounted in the bed of his pickup truck. Don’t ask me how it was legal, I don’t know.

      I figure this is the kind of guy you’re talking about, no?

    • MSG Eric says:

      After we invaded Iraq, they were giving waivers to people to join at up to 42.

    • desert says:

      How many of those 35 types could have enlisted when they were 17 or 18 like the rest of us? How many got married as an excuse not to serve? no, that doesn’t cut it…Most at 18 don’t know what the hell they are doing or going to do, all they know is, they don’t want to go to school and damned sure don’t want to join the military!

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Fuckin’ A, I came back in after a NINE YEAR break in service and did two tours in the ME.

  38. Mark Laur says:

    The more the media pussies bitch about it, the better I like it.
    I don’t think they understand that at all.

    So, keep up the bitching, girls. Put on your pussy hats, and go mincing down the road in a pussy parade along with the other nasty women who are wearing their pussy hats that nobody had a problem with back when they were bitching about Trump being president.

    The pussies.

  39. CPT11A says:

    If you didn’t serve, you better be a woman or have pulled a woman from a burning vehicle sinking in a mud pit full of crocodiles. Otherwise, you’re a pussy.

    Going to law school, or fighting Charlottesville Nazis, or serving in the Peace Corps does not change that status. You might be a fine human being still, but you’re a pussy.

    Don’t like it? Volunteer.

  40. MSG Eric says:

    If you’re offended by Mattis calling people a Pussy, well, maybe it’s because you’re a pussy.

  41. Tallywhagger says:

    The senior drill instructor for my basic training cycle had more unique ways of conjugating profanity and vulgarity together that I couldn’t help but laugh at him when would get on a roll. If he called you a pussy, you could be pretty sure that he was in a good mood 🙂

    Just imagine if Mattis taught some of the triggered fake news sissies some of the rhythmic marching/cadence songs!

    It has been more than 40 years since I learned those songs and they still come back to me at appropriate times.

  42. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Dear MSM pussies,

    If the shoe fits, feel free to lace those bitches up and wear them!

    And seriously, what would they do if they knew the fast attack guys refer to (most) Trident sailors as boomer fags? I only say most because of the 4 SSGN reconfigured Tridents.

  43. Reaperman says:

    I’ve never been on a ship, making me a pretty shitty sailor, but I digress. Somebody in our shop went out with the reserves for just a couple weeks (or something short), and when she came back, it was so bad that we had to set up an office swear jar. ‘Pussy’ was not even close to being on the swear list, and we were allowed one free ‘fuck’ per sentence–because it’s the fucking Navy, and we don’t talk like pussies. IIRC, the swear jar still funded a full burrito run, and those things were the size of fucking babies.

  44. Dinotanker says:

    FUCKIN’ A! Go General Mattis!

    Id say Mattis for Prez, but Im a selfish bastard;

    MATTIS FOR GOVERNOR!!! For a “REAL” Washington, Vote for Mattis.

    I cannot imagine how many profane comments I have made about cannon cockers, crunchies, and wing nuts in my time. Im sure that those studs and studettes have returned the favor equally when heaping platitudes upon those of us who wear crossed sabers (and those misguided ones who have to put a tank on our beloved branch insignia…:)).

    But since most of those folks who pretend to be report on issues of great national concern, I imagine they have chosen a path of delusion when it comes to the real world. Im sure that journalists and their colleagues never employ profanity and that the talk in the newsrooms is urbane and academic when compared to how the rest of the great unwashed talk. Yeah, right.

    Hey PUSSIES in the media, get real. The only beef I have about Gen. Mattis being the Secretary of Defense is that his title ought to be Secretary of War (and other asskicking events that need to happen to protect the Constitution and Citizens of the United States of America).

  45. SFC D says:

    If the word “pussy” offends you, ya just might be a pussy. HT to Mr. Foxworthy.

  46. Roger in Republic. says:

    I didn’t see any of the lamestream media mavens losing their shit when the Anti Trump feminazis paraded around with their Pussey Hats during the inaguration protests. If it were not for double standards, the libs wouldn’t have any standards at all. Besides, the pussies Mathis is talking about have nothing to do with physiology.

    • USMCMSgt (Ret) says:

      Not to mention the media’s silence when rap stars like JayZ, Lewdacris and a cast of others performed at the White House during the last administration.

      The lyrics to their songs pale in comparison to what Mattis said.

      Fuck ’em.
