SAVAGE: But listen, I got very upset today as a nonmilitary man. When I watch these Khmer Rouge feminists try to take over the military, this looked liked an attempted coup to me, Col. West.
WEST: Nah, you're absolutely right, and that's a big concern that I have because when you start to get—you know, I understand civilian oversight of the military. We all understand that as all officers who served in uniform. But when you start to have this interjection of, you know, political, you know, will against, you know, the military, good order and discipline, where you start to try to usurp the commanders' authority and I guess replace it with some type of political, legal officers, and things of that nature. Then the next thing you know, it goes from just dealing with this, you know, sexual assault thing to, you know, making decisions on the battlefield.
AVAGE: When I saw military chiefs grilled on sexual assault, when I know most of the sexual assault cases are invented, I know it for a fact. You know it, and I know it. You can change the definition of anything to turn it into something it isn't. And when you start saying that asking a woman out on a date and her saying, "Oh I didn't want to go on a date with him, I felt threatened, I felt uncomfortable." They're now calling that sexual assault ...
What are women going to do in the Navy SEALs or the U.S. Marines in an advanced base and an outpost. If a guy leans over and says, "Can I have a smoke on your cigarette?" while he's sitting there with a machine gun, what, are they going to call that a sexual assault?
