Duncan Hunter Admits To Taking Selfies With Corpses

Duncan Hunter Admits To Taking Selfies With Corpses


>>Trump’s new thing is pardoning members
of the US military charged with a variety of different types of war crimes. And in that effort, he has a lot of republican
defenders, including California Congressman Duncan Hunter, a guy who’s facing his own
charges of different variety. He’s a big defender of members of the military
charged with those war crimes and in defense of them, at a recent town hall, he actually
admitted to his own bizarre behaviors, as you’ll hear in this audio.>>Bay was a Navy chief. Around 40 years old, I think he was 39. 19 years in the Navy, eight or nine on combat
tours. There was a disagreement in their platoon,
so a year after coming back, some of the seals in his platoon basically came to the agreement
that they would accuse Eddie of killing the Isis terrorist, okay? Because Eddie did one bad thing that I’m guilty
of too. Taking a picture with the body and saying
something stupid, and then texting that. So he took a picture with the body, with his
knife out, and texting it to some buddies and said, I got this one with my knife, okay? I’ve taken pictures just like that, when I
was overseas. Didn’t text it to anybody, didn’t put them
on Facebook or Instagram, but a lot of my peers, a lot of us, have done the exact same
thing.>>Okay, so and to be clear, the individual
that he’s talking about there and comparing his own behavior to is Eddie Gallagher, someone
we’ve talked about several times on the show. Now, you might believe that you just heard
Duncan Hunter describe the one bad thing that he did, which was taking a picture. That sort of begs the question, what did he
take the picture with? That is the corpse of a person that he had
just murdered. Among the accusations against Navy Seal, Eddie
Gallagher, are that he stabbed and killed a wounded person, and also shot at noncombatants,
posed for a photo and performed his re-enlistment ceremony next to a corpse, according to a
charge sheet from November, Gallagher has pleaded not guilty. So yes, he didn’t take the picture with the
corpse after making it a corpse. He also would sometimes get into the machine
gun mounted in the back of an armored vehicle and then begin firing at residential areas,
just randomly.>>Yes, so-
>>I don’t know if he took a picture of that though.>>Yeah. So Duncan Hunter has two different problems
in that little speech. The one is the lying, the other is the truth. So the lies, he did one little thing. No, if you notice in the middle of Duncan
Hunter story he said, they had a disagreement in his platoon. And all of the other Navy Seals turned him
in because, that’s what Navy Seals do all the time, right? It’s a slight disagreement, he was jaywalking
in Iraq and we all decided to turn him in. That’s not what happens, no. All the other Navy Seals turn you in when
you’ve committed a horrible crime.>>Mm-hm.>>Including killing wounded people you’ve
already captured, or shooting at civilians wantonly, possibly leading to death. So if anyone who is on the receiving end of
those random bullets including men, women, and children. So the fact that the other Navy Seals turned
him in should give you a pretty good sense of how bad the action here was. And by the way, credit to those guys for caring
about war crimes, caring about doing their jobs right, and turning in a bad apple. So a lot of times you’ll say, they’re just
bad apples but the good apples never turn them in. But in this case they did, so it gives you
the sense of the severity of the crime and the integrity of the other Navy Seals. Now, we get to the problem with the truth. Duncan Hunter’s like, yeah, I’d committed
war crimes too, I take pictures with bodies of the dead.. Now, that’s not on the same level as the other
crimes that we just talked about. I don’t know what the ramifications for that
are. I’m sure that it’s wrong, and so I suppose,
not I suppose I’m sure that he should be reprimanded for that since he just admitted it. So, in militarily, I don’t know what that
what form that reprimand would take. He didn’t admit to killing anyone illegally,
thank God. I don’t know if he did or didn’t, but the
fact that he seems to diminish significant war crimes does not give you a lot of comfort.>>Yeah, and we’re gonna play a little bit
more video of him that will enhance that idea, that he perhaps does not take this entire
thing very seriously even though. The thing he’s admitted to is about the lightest
of all of the charges that I’ve heard. There are individuals or snipers, that decided
to shoot the elderly and kids when they had no reason to believe that they were threats. Again, randomly firing to residential areas,
maybe killing people, maybe not, that’s part of the game. Those are obviously far worse charges. But I do wanna focus on one thing that he
said in that first section. He said, they all came together and they decided
to accuse him. So, he is sort of implying that it is just
a accusation. And sure, all of these things will be investigated. It’s a bit odd that he posed next to the corpse
that, what they’re saying he didn’t actually kill? Everybody there agrees that he did, but the
narrative there is that lawyers are, he says in one case, he says, the military justice
system is corrupt. It’s run by lawyers who target war fighters. As if it’s ongoing campaign to just destroy
anyone who happened to serve abroad. Well look, I even track all the people who
have been charged with war crimes in the decades that we’ve been fighting in that country,
but I can name a few that are being considered to be pardoned. Like three, four individuals, how many people
served in Iraq? Tens of thousands, if this is a campaign against
our war fighters, it’s still in its incipient phase I would say. There’s only a few people whose crimes rose
to the level where yes, we’re having a conversation about whether this is what our soldiers should
be getting up to. Now, in the case of Duncan Hunter, a guy who
has a very loose attachment to the rule of law here domestically, get an idea of what
he thinks the philosophy for our war fighters abroad should be.>>If the American people, and if the American
people want to send men like me overseas to kill bad people, then let us do that, okay? If you don’t think that we should be doing
that, then maybe we shouldn’t be in Iraq, maybe we shouldn’t be in Syria, maybe we shouldn’t
be in Afghanistan, then lets not do it at all. But don’t pay me, and train me, to go kill
bad people for our people in this country, meaning for the American people. Don’t have me go do that, and then come home
and be punished because you made me into a person who kills bad people. I was an artillery officer, and I was an artillery
officer in Fallujah in 2004, we definitely kill civilians. That’s what war is, so it was not intentional.>>Purposely this one, this case.>>That’s what war is.>>Okay, so when the reporter points out the
difference between accidentally killing civilians, which is its own issue, and intentionally
killing civilians, he made this noise, eh.>>Yeah.>>As if the distinction between those two
things is unimportant.>>Yeah, and he kept saying you sent me to
kill bad people. Well okay, well there is an important qualifier
there, bad people. But we didn’t send you theoretically, to kill
innocent people. As it turns out, we killed a lot of innocent
people. Just over the weekend, Bill Kristol and Jennifer
Rubin who writes for the Washington Post were yelling at Bernie Sanders cuz he was impolite
to them about the Iraq war. Well, we kill nearly a million innocent Iraqis
in that war. I would argue that slightly more impolite,
and but two guys like Duncan Hunter, he just doesn’t see the distinction. He’s like, you said bad people, I killed Iraqis,
innocent, non innocent. Yeah, so does that now ratchet up the level
to which I would want to see if Duncan Hunter committed war crimes? Yup, because he seems to not really care about
this bad distinction at all, and no, not all Iraqis are bad people, and not all US soldiers
think like Duncan Hunter. In fact, apparently most don’t, and that’s
why these guys got turned in. There’s a couple of people that Trump is thinking
of pardoning, and at least two of them, including the person we’ve been talking about, Gallagher,
and Army major, Matt Golsteyn, are accused of premeditated murder of innocent people.>>Yeah.>>And so, that’s not what we call bad people
in this country, but Duncan Hunter is a terrible guy. He’s of course facing indictment on federal
corruption charges, so he doesn’t seem to really care much for the rule of law at all.>>Yeah, yeah, and again I’m reminded, he’s
talking about, like, hey, crazy things happen. War’s a crazy time. And he’s saying that all of that, whether
it’s firing artillery that might hit civilians, which again, that sort of chance that you
might be killing civilians is one of the reasons that we should be far more careful in the
military ventures that we choose to go on. Is somehow the same as a soldier seeing a
wounded Iraqi, taking out his knife, walking up to this person, who’s being treated for
his wounds, and then murdering him with a knife is the same thing. I don’t understand how any reasonable person
doesn’t hear that comparison and think, Duncan Hunter is an absolute monster. He doesn’t belong in the military, he doesn’t
belong in government. Probably should be being watched, and I would
assume counseled for the obvious damage that has been done to him, because his sense of
morality Is at best topsy turvy, if not shredded beyond any repair.>>Now this is the guy who of course says,
we should pardon war criminals because of how much he cares about people in the service. Now let’s remind you that part of the corruption
charges was that, he would rip off his own donors and others and say, well let’s just
pretend that we bought material for veterans and service members. So, it’s not what we’re not give it to the
people serving, of course not. I’m just gonna keep the money and spend it
for my own purposes. And we’ll pretend that we did something good
for the people in service. So, he doesn’t really have much respect for
the decent people serving the United States military either. He’s happy to rip off people under their name,
so that’s the kind of guy Duncan Hunter is. He barely won re-election and that does not
speak well that district. They knew a lot of these churches, not about
the war crime but certainly about the corruption charges ahead of time. But this time running against Ammar Campa-Najjar,
who is his Democratic opponent. He might be on the ropes but, look, if you’re
in that district in California, You’re gonna get to decide who you are.>>Mm-hm.>>Because you’ve now seen all this, and if
you think, yeah, I like that guy who doesn’t care between distinguishing it’s the civilians
and bad guys that were fighting. It’s okay with murder and things that people
should be pardoned. And then, makes a mockery of the people who
serve the country by ripping off and doing corruption in their name, when they didn’t
do any such thing. Okay, then that’s who you are and enjoy that
life, but that sounds pretty miserable to me, but yes, you do have another option in
that district.>>And one more thing for context. Remember that this Duncan Hunter is the guy
who ran the most Islamophobic campaign ad at least in recent history. That was very fast going. Yeah, just accusing him of being a terrorist
because of his background, the background of his family, his family heritage. And so this guy believes that, if you or anyone
in your family was or is Muslim, you have no place in US government. He also believes that Iraqi soldiers and civilians,
you can just murder them if you want and that’s totally fine. It’s totally part of the war, if you believe
that those are separate things, that there’s not some sort of ideological connection between
the way that they practice Islamophobia here in the US, and the way they believe wars should
be prosecuted. I think you’re insane, maybe as insane as
Duncan Hunter.>>Well actually, now it all makes sense when
you connect the two things. So his opponent was Omar who is not even Muslim. He’s christian, he’s raised by his christian
mom who is Latina, his father side are Palestinians, now he doesn’t have contact, certainly with
the people that were in the ad. Duncan Hunter Jr had to go back to his grandfather
and accuse his grandfather of terrorism, he never met his grandfather, his grandfather
died well before Omar was even born. But now, and actually at least I understand
the connection, cuz Duncan Hunter thinks, I don’t care, that guy’s an Arab. He looks brown, he has a Muslim sounding name. Good guy, bad guy running for Congress, or
someone I’m supposed to kill, I can’t quite tell. So, that’s who Duncan Hunter is. Of course he’s running Islamophobic ads here
in America in his own election campaign. He’s the guy who said, who cares who they
are in Iraq, just kill them. You just saw it on tape. Eh, innocent civilians or guys we’re supposed
to target. Eh, who cares? So that’s who Duncan Hunter is.

  1. Fatboy, he clearly said it was not intentional. And he is still innocent until proven guilty. As a lawyer you should already known that. But then again you are the same fucker who doesn’t know whether or not Jussie Smollett was guiltily of reporting a fake crime.

  2. What's this Duncan Hunter had Sex with Corpses??????  Another GOP Politician in a scandal???? No way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ha, ha, ha.

  3. Isn't or wasn't necrophilia illegal? Or is this part of the new normal under President Helter Skelter carrying on the race war flag for Charles Manson?

  4. THIS WHITE CRACCA PIECE OF SHIT FAKE AMERIKKKAN SNIPER MENTALITY MOTHERFUCCA THINKS HE'S TOUGH. WHEN HE'S IN PRISON GETTING HIS ASSHOLE TORN OPEN. HE'LL REGRET HIS WORDS. THIS CRIMINAL IS FACING CHARGES FOR OTHER CRIMES. HE'S LOOKING FOR A FUTURE PARDON. WHITE COCC SUCCA

  5. Man any US soldier that takes pictures with dead bodies is mentally Disturbed.. you do not ever do that !!!!you are disgraced to every man and woman that wears a uniform and you jeopardize other man and woman that wears a uniform for future conflicts

  6. Lock him up he's a cold blooded murderer. Sniped women and children..killed people he'd captured and his platoon turned him in!

  7. From day one the military has been replete with sociopaths and psychopaths at all levels, they derive pleasure from causing misery and suffering with the full enablement of the Pentagon.

  8. There is a difference between killing an enemy combatant and intentionally murdering a civilian, if he can't understand that then he doesn't need to hold public office. When I was in the USMC we have R.O.E.s that you had to follow while deployed these are very simple ordered to follow that gave you instructions to help you make a judgment on when and if you need to fire your weapon. Most people in the military do not want to kill, if you enjoy killing people then you need physiological help.

  9. He's from California? Come on Cali, you are better than this. Except for the scum in Orange county.

  10. I thought it was ' demon hunter takes selfies with corpses" this is stupid I'm out….

  11. Killing is a necessary evil for the military; no one should enjoy evil and be considered fit for public office.

  12. The American Military is nothing more than tool of Israeli foreign policy. Our leaders are so sold out to Israel that we do nothing but their bidding.

  13. We shouldn't be in these places.. but you are a psychopath and you shouldn't be doing it in the name of the country.. he has for sure committed some major war crimes… Just wait and see

  14. I think Duncan Hunter's definition of "bad people" is the same as the one they use in drone strike counts. Any male between 14 to 60 is a militant/terrorist. He doesn't seen one bit guilty of killing innocent civilians! I guess it's my fault that he went to Iraq to kill "bad people"! most Americans didn't vote for G W Bush and the war in Iraq! And since you're a pro-war Republican, you must relish killing "bad people"! He's got to be a psychopath, because a racist would at least feel some remorse for killing civilians! Way to go "pro-life" party!!

  15. trump pardoned a PEDOPHILE by the name of Jeffrey Epstein who was already in a florida prison doing time. Don't hear young turds mention that ever……

  16. Freedom IS FREE!! It's in the word. You sick fucks are fighting to steal oil and natural resources from other nations. You are the REAL terrorists and nothing more then glorified pirates. Do not use American citizens to justify the blood on your hands. Blame oil corporations. Thats who you murder for. Not the citizens in the USA, duncan dip shit!!

  17. Wouldn't captain bone spurs just pardon anyone who commits a war crime? He's in favor of torture, I'm guessing he would promote this disgusting behavior. His justification process is hilarious too, appareantly the only options are either allow people in the military to go into countries and slaughter whoever without no consequences or bring dont send anyone and bring them all home.

  18. Everyone commenting needs to Go to Fox News comment sections and state their opinion there . We are all in agreement here . They troll us and are only getting louder. We need to hit back at home base .

  19. Over 90% of military are NON-combat jobs: wow, talk about lumping folks together..!
    Majority of recruits in combat wished to be there, little is our empathy for them. Ours was spent on draftees, & patriotic friends/relatives sucked into LBJ-Pentagon's miserable VietNam tradegy. Tell kids to stop fantasizing about heroically killing, and try volunteering for Service to humanity. Teaching murder then discharging these exploited kids on to our streets is suicidal formula whose results confirm it…

  20. most of military of all over the world are sick mindless zombies who are brainwash by false patriotism just to ensure the power of the rich selfish bum dictator

  21. says more about those dishonorable soldiers, THEIR frakked up character… how grotesque..just like how the trump sons love to pose with animals they kill for sport..not that innocent animals are like ISIL fighters but the killers are the same.

    that politician has OBVIOUSLY done a whole LOT of highly illegal war crimes..just look at his demeanor as he ALSO blows off killing civilians accidentally..he says, "no diff." Duncan Hunter is obviously a racist, a sociopath who has no soul….oh PLEASE someone investigate the SH*¥T out of his time in 'service.'

    and why does John think Duncan was made evil by being in the military..he was obviously born evil..cops and soldiers.. psychological screening is needed before they can even qualify to apply for training of any kind..police cadet training, military boot camp, all of it.

  22. That guy needs to see the army psychologist ASAP! Taking pictures with the bodies of people you killed is definitely a warning sign to some major mental health issues.

  23. duncan hunter is essentially saying I went to a foreign country, killed people and turned them into social media fodder but I'm the victim here. More right wing grievance airing, in this case without reason or substance. Sick sick man doesn't even realize he is one of the bad people.

  24. There is no rehabilitation Hunter posing with a corpse. You are the bad guy! What kind of hate do you have in your heart to do something so horrible. He looks like an alcoholic.

  25. That's the thing that kills me. These supporters of the killer marine chief totally dismissed the fact his own squad. Who are cut from the same cloth. Turned him in.

  26. He is right about training people to kill bad people. BUT THE DEFINITION OF BAD PEOPLE IS IMPORTANT

  27. Even if he was a terrorist, I don't care if he was Bin Laden! Once he was dead his body deserves at least a modicum of respect!!! Also, just because they're soldiers for the other side doesn't mean they're bad people too. Didn't men get executed if they didn't want to join the military in Iraq during the war?

  28. "Kill bad people" — what is he? 5 years old?
    He's right about one thing: "This is what war is." Yes, morons with deadly weapons killing innocent people in the millions. YOU ARE THE BAD PEOPLE.

  29. Yeah you know that stupid thing you do when in the military, take selfies with dead people, oh lol 😂 yeah Duncan we all know that one

  30. Let me get this straight. American leaders and politicians go to war and bomb countries and kill civilians in the thousands with the excuse of coming to the aid of the people and removing a leader who has committed war crimes, BUT will exonerate and pardon our own military personnel who commit war crimes against POW's and/or civilians. Go figure!!!!!!

  31. Can't say im surprised by Hunter's necrophilic selfies.

    He's a Republican after all. You'll find pedos, rapists, bigots and war criminals often in that party too.

    What else is new?

  32. War criminals pact together. Did he have the nerve to say bad people when he robs the US for finacial gain in the name of veterans? After nonchalantly admitting to killing civilians overseas. He says that's what war is, but he's a liar. Doesn't surprise me he's involved in a corruption case.

  33. Think how offended Hunter would be if photos of the Talaban standing around a dead American soldier smiling and laughing turned up. Hypocrite much?

  34. White terrorist psychopaths just doing what they've always done and will continue to do if we allow them to keep breeding.

  35. Duncan Hunter is basically the helicopter machine gunner in “Full Metal Jacket” who, when asked by Joker how he identifies the VC, says “If they run they’re VC. If the stand still they’re highly disciplined VC”

  36. People that vote for Duncan Hunter are not miserable. Because they so psychopathic they will be in utter bliss most of the time

  37. Creepy death picks ok with republican representative cuz he allso got death trophy photos.killing of civilians is murder murderis wrong right? Then why is this coward of a president forgiving murder by soldier .

  38. Nazi Hunter needs a Nazi Hunter to expose his murders .he is guilty be as hell for sure .killing civilians is murder period .

  39. As a former enlisted man I opine that barbarism diminishes honorable service. I've had family serve in every branch except the Coast Guard who served under harsh conditions and still came home as humans, not the monsters the people of the middle east portrays us to be. You don't have to lose your humanity to become an effective war fighter.

  40. Dude is brainwashed by the military because this guy is just plain stupid and allowed them to tell him what war was and he has no moral compass so he did his wicked deeds and then tried to brush them off as "that's what war is" to make himself feel better.

  41. Assholes, why don’t you virtuous pieces of shit do research on what Japanese soldiers did to American soldiers? Never trust this fat fucker and his morally weak Stockholm syndrome employees!!!!

  42. You talk mad s*** about Duncan Hunter. At least he served in the military what have you done for this country? Other than make yourself rich by begging for money

  43. And not too long ago, this guy was caught misusing campaign funds! Now he admits to mass murder? These are the types of people running the government?

  44. “If the American people want to send MEN LIKE ME over seas to kill bad people….”
    He knows exactly who he is. (A psychopath.)

    Top 10 list of jobs with the highest rate of psychopathy:

    CEO
    Lawyer
    Media (TV/Radio)
    Salesperson
    Surgeon
    Journalist
    Police Officer
    Clergy Person
    Chef
    Civil Servant (politicians)

    And we wonder what’s wrong with our world today…..rising narcissism and psychopathy bred in a competitive self serving capitalist society.

  45. It’s bad enough that those whom kill animals for fun take ‘trophy pics’. These are fellow human lives that for the sake of politics are on different sides of an equation. There is little glory in displaying that death in a forever photograph. Consciousness people spend the rest of their lives suppressing the horrors of those images.

  46. Dishonorable Duncan and 7 Cubic executives are guilty of bribery and corruption.

    March 28, 2016 – Seven top-level executives for defense contractor Cubic Corporation contributed a combined $4,250 to Hunter’s campaign. The contributors and Duncan Hunter failed to report their occupation and employer to the FEC.

    March 29, 2016 – Cubic announced that one of its business units was awarded a $2.3 million contract from the U.S. Army’s Maneuver Center of Excellence.

    The correlation between the cash and the contract couldn’t make the bribe any more blatant.

    Duncan Hunter’s campaign fund embezzlement establishes a direct motive for the bribes. Money in the campaign account was money in his pocket. They all omitted their occupations and employer in an effort to hide the bribes.

    Cubic’s Corporate Criminals:

    Walter C Zable, CEO & Chairman $1000

    Michael R Twyman, Senior VP & President of Cubic Mission Solutions $1000

    John D. Thomas, Executive VP & CFO $250

    John E Roberti, VP Government Relations & Strategy $500

    Mark A. Harrison, Senior VP & Corporate Controller $500

    Bradley H. Feldmann, Chairman, President & CEO $500

    James R Edwards, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary $500
