Construction begins on US Navy ship named after Harvey Milk who preyed on underage boys

Andrew Dyer reports for The San Diego Union-Tribune that last Friday, December 13, 2019, General Dynamics began construction on the future U.S. Navy Ship (USNS) Harvey Milk, a fleet oiler named for the first openly homosexual man elected in California whom the U. S. Navy dishonorably discharged after being caught in a San Diego park popular with homosexual men.

Note: Fleet oilers like the future Harvey Milk are used to replenish fuel oil and dry goods to Navy ships at sea. Harvey Milk will be the second ship in the new John Lewis class of fleet oilers that will replace the 17 double-hulled Kaisers. The lead ship will be the USNS John Lewis (T-AO-205), named for Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia). All ships of the class are to be named after civil rights leaders. Below is an image of the naval oiler USNS Henry J. Kaiser.

Milk was elected to the San Francisco board of supervisors in 1978 and was assassinated 10 months later by an ex-supervisor. His life was the subject of the 2008 film “Milk.” In August 2009, Obama posthumously awarded Milk the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his contribution to the gay rights movement.

Harvey’s nephew, Stuart Milk, attended Friday’s event at General Dynamics NASSCO in San Diego, where the ship is being built. Stuart said his uncle was forced to resign from the Navy in the 1950s after being caught in a San Diego park popular with gay men. To be honored now with a ship showed how much things have changed and “sends a global message of inclusion more powerful than simply ‘We’ll tolerate everyone.’ (It says) We celebrate everyone.”

Stuart Milk was joined by NASSCO representatives and San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, State Senate President Pro Tempore Toni Atkins, Assemblyman Todd Gloria, and San Diego City Councilman Chris Ward.

Nicole Murray Ramirez, the chairman and executive director of the San Diego International Imperial Court Council, an LGBT organization, was a leader in the push to name a vessel after Milk by organizing a national letter-writing campaign in 2011 to push Obama administration Navy Secretary Ray Mabus to name a ship for Milk. In July 2016, Mabus told Congress that he intended to name the second ship of the John Lewis-class oilers, the USNS Harvey Milk.

According to Wikipedia, Harvey Milk was born in 1930 in New York City to Lithuanian Jewish parents. In 1964 when Milk was 34 years old, he began “a romantic relationship” with a 16-year-old teen named Jack Galen McKinley who was prone to depression and threatened to commit suicide if Milk did not show him enough attention. The relationship ended in 1969.

That same year, Milk began a romantic relationship with 21-year-old Scott Smith, who later became Milk’s campaign manager for public office in California. The relationship lasted 7 years.

Around 1977, Milk took a new lover, a young man named Jack Lira, who was frequently drunk in public. Lira’s obituary says:

JACK LIRA was one of Harvey Milk’s string of young boy friends. Jack had an alcohol problem and many considered him an embarassment to Harvey’s image. In January 1978, he accompanied Harvey as he led a procession of supporters from Castro Street to his ceremonial swearing-in ceremony on the steps of City Hall…. [I]t became obvious to Harvey that he had to break off his relationship with Jack because Jack was becoming a liability to his job as San Francisco Supervisor. A few weeks later, Harvey came home to his Henry Street flat to find that Jack Lira had committed suicide by hanging himself on the back porch.

In 2013, reacting to the U.S. Postal Service’s decision to feature Harvey Milk on a postage stamp, Matt Barber of the evangelical Christian non-profit Liberty Counsel told One News Now (source: Huffington Post):

“Harvey Milk was known as a pederast. That’s a man who in his mid-30s had a sexual appetite for teenage boys as young as 15 years old. Harvey Milk was demonstrably, categorically an evil man based on his rape of teenage boys, And the fact that our U.S. government would be commemorating and recognizing him as some kind of hero really just boggles the mind.”

It’s bad enough that they would name a whole class of these ships after Lewis, the aging commie agitator. Now Milk. Harvey Milk. Even his name is sickeningly rainbow/unicorn. I hope the effing thing sinks (with nobody on it of course) in the Baltimore Canyon where it can rest on the bottom with the rest of the garbage. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to projectile vomit

I’d really like to know who suggested and approved this. Is it Trumps new Naval commander?
Well any which way the Globo Homo hierarchy is here and in fact had been working behind the scenes in the military the whole time if you believe Kay Griggs testimony. Guess they are so arrogantly confident of themselves at this point they are all coming out of the closet. After all they arranged for Fag and a tranny to be out last First Couple.

Yes I suspected, but was confused as the article said they are just now starting the building of the ship. SO that means they figure out a name for a ship they are going to build 5 years from the present? I looked up who the Secretary of the Navy is and it’s this guy who it looks Obongo must have sworn in a month before he left office. /Article/1183103/dr-heather-wilson/ Don’t know if it’s the same who ordered the homo ship or not. Why hasn’t Trump redone this one? Obongo got rid of everyone in the military command who was… Read more »

THAT’D cause a big blow-up;Milk’s family would sue to have his name put back in place to “honor his heroic Service”,all the gender-deranged would start boycot-I mean PERSONcotting everything President Trump or ANY of his relatives own,and anyone of us who support our President would stand an excellent chance of being beaten or shot by the pacifist gun grabbers of the Socialist-Democrats and,no doubt,Pelosi and Schumer would start changing laws,rules and the Constitution to make it mandatory to “honor” pervs and Pedophiles whenever possible.

The Iron Mike as first “lady” was very much a display of their in-your-face arrogance. As was Obongo himself, a programmed, mind-controlled, demon-haunted fruitcake who wore black nail polish and once ordered thirty thousand dollars (our money of course) worth of “hot dogs” to be delivered to the White House

I bet there will be even more gay sex taking place on that ship than a typical Navy ship. Probably more rape too. The Russians will be shaking in their boots when the Good Ship Lollipop (or Good Ship Faggot) sails into the Strait of Yirkutsk to wage war against the evil Russians. Some how I think Spetznaz will be less than impressed when some faggot with full lisp gets off a tank in high heels and steps on Russian soil. It will be the faggotiest thing they’ve ever seen in their life.

The Russians don’t stand a chance, especially when we send in the Tranny Brigade. They’ll die laughing

This is an absolute disgrace. But I also believe that naming an aircraft carrier after George H.W. Bush is also a disgrace, given his criminal activity.

Would that be considered a “Wanker Tanker”? Having worked on ships years ago this sickens me.
