SEAL who snuffed Bin Laden slams Navy for drag queen recruiter: ‘Can’t believe I fought for this bulls**t’

Robert J. O’Neill, the famous Navy SEAL who killed 9-11 terrorist Osama bin Laden, was enraged when he heard that the US Navy was going to use a drag queen for a recruitment program, railing that he “can’t believe [he] fought for this bullsh*t.”

“Alright. The U.S. Navy is now using an enlisted sailor Drag Queen as a recruiter. I’m done. China is going to destroy us. YOU GOT THIS NAVY. I can’t believe I fought for this bullsh*t,” O’Neill tweeted.

“You’re doing it wrong, @USNavy…. Talk to someone whose actually done something! Not yeomen with tits and a Dick!” he bluntly tweeted.

The decorated combat veteran served for eight years as a member of the legendary SEAL Team Six. He’s been through a lot but a drag queen pimping for the Navy is a bridge too far for the military man.

O’Neill’s tweet went viral on Wednesday afternoon. It now has over 2.1 million views and thousands of likes and retweets.

The drag queen being referenced is Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley who goes by the stage name “Harpy Daniels.” The Navy started promoting him over four years ago. The yeoman announced on TikTok in November that he would be the Navy’s first “digital ambassador.”

The drag queen spoke of his journey from performing on board beginning in 2018 and then becoming an “advocate” for those who “were oppressed for years in the service.”

According to a Navy spokesman who gave the Daily Mail a statement, the digital ambassador program was a pilot that ended in March 2023. It ran from October 2022 to March 2023 and was allegedly designed to ‘”explore the digital environment to reach a wide range of potential candidates” for military recruitment. Kelly was one of five digital ambassadors to take part in the program.

Following the disastrous ad campaign by Bud Light using transgender Dylan Mulvaney, many associated Kelley’s campaign with it. Both are PR nightmares.

The Navy drag queen has a very large following on TikTok, which by the way, the federal government was supposed to ban. You can find the yeoman’s drag performances on board Navy ships that have taken place there for years on the platform.

Unsurprisingly, the Navy is set to miss its recruiting targets for the 2023 fiscal year.

The Military Times reported in April that the Navy, Air Force, and Army are all on track to fall short of recruiting “thousands” for the US military. The Navy is going to miss its mark by 6,000 recruits. The Army will miss it by about 10,000 and the Air Force is projected to fall short by about 3,400.

Meanwhile, Kelly is claiming that he is getting death threats for being the face of the new woke Navy.

The drag queen posted a TikTok video on Tuesday lip-syncing to singer Jared Leto’s response about his inspiration for an outfit on the red carpet where he says it was “basically DGAF,” an acronym for “don’t give a f***.”

He called it his “first rebuttal” to haters.

In response to podcaster Graham Allen tweeting, “This is not the same military I served under. Our enemies LAUGH at us,” Kelly had a meltdown.

“You want to tear down service members and use my content without a tag so you don’t look homophobic or transphobic,” the drag queen clapped back on Instagram.

“You only want to support the military when it benefits you and doesn’t involve queer people,” Kelley continued. “Yet the military is the largest diverse and adaptable organization in use. You’re better off calling me a slur than using content from five years ago. Yet that video you’re sharing was published in 2018, you had nothing to say til now.”

“You don’t actually care, you just need more followers, more content, and more people to praise someone who only creates toxic environments and hate. You don’t care if I get death threats, people wanting to harm me, or spread disinformation. You only want the spotlight. Well, as a service member, a queen, and an open queer person, you don’t scare me and you won’t stop the LGBTQ+ community [from] thriving. Haters only hate when we’re winning,” the drag queen concluded.

People were quick to respond to O’Neill’s tweets:
