kevin-mccullough.jpgI'm not making this up. Kevin McCullough, a right-wing radio host employed by the American Family Association (an SPLC-certified anti-gay hate group), said Tuesday on his show that Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine's Crimean peninsula because Obama's U.S. military is a bunch of sissies.

Right Wing Watch reports:

McCullough said Putin feels he can "get away" with his invasion of Crimea "because of what he has seen disintegrate culturally right in front of everybody's eyes in the US" along with "the sissification of our military."

"Putin looks at the US and we're having drag shows on our bases," McCullough continued. "Do developments like this have anything to do with making our military leaders look less impressive in the eyes of the world? For instance, does Mr. Putin sit there and go, 'Yeah, I'm not going to do anything Obama says because number one, he can't keep his word, and number two, your military is now having drag shows on its bases.'"

The military drag show McCullough is referring to happened last Saturday at an air force base in Okinawa, Japan. It was a fundraiser for the Okinawa chapter of the LGBT military group OutServe-SLDN.

Video of McCullough's remarks is after the jump.
