Rick Perry heckled by straight Marine for new anti-gay ad

LA Times:

“Why are you demonizing gay and lesbian people?” shouted one heckler.

“Why can’t gays compete in the military?” chimed in Jason Arment, 24, an English major at nearby Iowa State University. Arment, of Grimes, Iowa, who said he was straight, said he served with the Marines in Iraq in 2007 and 2008….

Arment, in a brief interview, said that he found the Perry ad “extremely offensive” and “insulting” to service members.

Good for them. Apparently Perry had no response. Typical.
