DADT ect.

This is Too Important to Our National Defense; So It’s Free

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Dear Friend:

General - Whistleblower coverAllowing open homosexuals to serve in the military will destroy the combat effectiveness and unit cohesion of our military. Nevertheless, despite overwhelming objections from our combat troops, President Obama and Senator Reid rammed through a repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, ” law during the lame duck session of Congress. But the battle isn’t over yet. 

Whistleblower magazine, a print publication of World Net Daily (WND), produced an entire edition highlighting the destructive consequences of allowing open homosexuality in the military. In fact, David Kupelian, editor of Whistleblower, felt that overturning the repeal of DADT was so important to our national security that WND is making it available to everybody online for free.

Mr. Kupelian has graciously allowed TMLC to send this free offer to our e-mail subscribers.

Admiral Jeremiah Denton, who serves as Chairman of TMLC’s Citizens Advisory Board, was one of the contributors to this edition. A POW in Vietnam for nearly 8 years, Admiral Denton first came to attention during a publicly televised interview by Communists, when he refused to condemn America under threat of death, and blinked his eyes in Morse code spelling out the message “t-o-r-t-u-r-e.” President Reagan, in his 1982 State of the Union address, recognized Admiral Denton as a living hero.

Please read this urgent and compelling report, and make sure you send it to all of your friends and family. We must not lose this battle!

Repeal the Homosexualization of the American Military
Unless and until the action of the Lame Duck Obama-Reid-Pelosi 111th Congress to repeal “Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell” is itself repealed by the 112th Congress, every member of the House and Senate, as well as Obama and his White House gaggle of liberal “progressives” creating their Brave New Homosexual Military World, should be compelled to shower daily with homosexual Barney Frank in the Congressional gym……

President Barack Obama may not be finished in his crusade to grant equal rights to gay Americans.

The Art of War and DADT

The Cost of DADT Repeal

By Lt Col Elizabeth Herring

Fresh off their election defeat for foisting a health care bill they didn’t read onto voters who didn’t want it, Congressional Democrats are pushing repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) on services that don’t want it.  This is a short-sighted attempt to bolster their base by delivering on a campaign promise based on the self-interest of a few while disregarding its impact on the whole of the military.  Now we must demand Congress not force implementation prematurely and unwisely.
Despite being lauded as the right thing to do, repeal will struggle for legitimacy because the process was clouded in dishonesty.  We were told the military wants repeal, even though the chiefs of the Army, Air Force, and Marines told the Senate Armed Services Committee they are against repeal during wartime, and the DADT survey, per Secretary Gates’ testimony, deliberately did not ask servicemen if they supported repeal.  Proponents assumed that because servicemen said they had no problem serving with a few they suspected were homosexuals, they would have no problem serving with many more who were openly homosexual.
In reality, almost sixty percent of Marines and nearly half of Army respondents predicted a potential negative impact.  Those in combat units, where privacy could be an issue, were more likely to predict a negative impact than those with administrative or support duties.  We are being told those who fight for us deserve respect but the warfighters are being ignored.  What do they fear and what is being done to address these fears?
Secretary Gates and Admiral Mullen said they would not certify that the military is ready to implement the repeal before regulations and training are in place.  If they can’t be honest about what the survey indicates, how can we trust them to be honest about the military’s readiness for change?  In a rush to implement, will the Administration or Congress force the services to act prematurely?
Arguments promoting repeal were questionable.  One “benefit” is repeal by Congress gives the services more time to implement than repeal via judicial fiat.  This isn’t truly a benefit but an outrage — an outrage that a judge would legislate thusly and that Congress and the Commander in Chief would allow an activist judge to override Congress’ Article I, Section 8 powers to govern the military.
Another questionable “benefit” is it will help fill the shortfall of Arabic translators.  Some claim that hundreds have been discharged because of their homosexuality.  They don’t ask if Arab translators who are Muslim might consider leaving the military rather than serve along those who violate their religious laws.  Nor did they explain why the military would want homosexual Arab translators who quite likely would be deployed to countries that have severe penalties for homosexual behavior.
Some falsely claim this is no different from arguments about women serving; however, their solution does not mirror the gradual integration of women into various career fields.  Women are still denied access to many military jobs where minimal privacy would increase sexual tensions.  The military doesn’t plan to deny homosexuals access to those same jobs where privacy is an issue nor could it since it plans to continue the “Don’t Ask” half of the policy.
If homosexuals are to be accepted while intolerance of their lifestyle will be punished, why keep the “Don’t Ask” policy after DADT is repealed?  Instead, DADT should be replaced with “Must Ask, Must Tell” so the military can identify openly homosexual servicemen and avoid assigning them to duties and units where their presence could create problems (i.e. integrate them prudently, just as it did women).
Congress and Secretary Gates appear insensitive to the fears of the servicemen.  Under their implementation plan, military members won’t be able to refuse having a homosexual roommate.  The burden rests on the heterosexual to be “tolerant.”  Will servicemen be disciplined for refusing a mandatory drug test when the person assigned to observe them urinate is openly gay?  Will the military create a hostile environment for those who don’t accept homosexual behavior due to religious, moral, or natural biological aversions?  Society already, through its widespread acceptance of the pejoratives “homophobe” and “bigot,” intimidates those who oppose the homosexual lifestyle.
The military believes it will resolve these issues through “education and training.”  What does this encompass?  Will it teach servicemen that their moral and religious beliefs are wrong? 
How much will repeal cost the military?  Will Congress budget for this or will the military be forced to use its training and operational appropriations?  If Congress will appropriate money for the costs, will other programs be cut, or will we borrow more money from China to make this happen?
Almost 24 percent of those who responded to question 81 in the DADT survey aid they would either leave the military (12.6%) or consider leaving the military (11.1%) sooner than planned.  Some religious denominations will force their chaplains to leave, too.  This will create additional recruitment, training, and retention costs.  Admiral Mullen’s answer, “We should let them leave” did not address the impact on the military and it insulted those who serve honorably but have moral or religious views that conflict with this radical social change.  How will we resolve the retention issues and costs that will arise when the value of one’s service and the opinions of those who serve are cheapened by such a dismissive attitude from the top?
If too many opt to leave, will some be forced to stay under some form of stop-loss, against their will and their values?  And what of those who don’t want to sacrifice their values for leadership positions?  Since leadership experience is a prerequisite for advancement, what will be the cost of replacing the leaders we have cultivated when they take their potential elsewhere?
The military must change the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).  Will some religious beliefs now violate the UCMJ and will the UCMJ now violate the Constitution?  A stronger constitutional argument could be made for safeguarding religious freedom rather than sexual choice.  Are we just changing who must serve uncomfortably in silence from the minority to the majority?
Liberals want to further mainstream homosexuality by forcing its open practice on a right-of-center military they know will respond professionally even if Congress doesn’t.  Even though they are less likely to enlist in the military and are often hostile towards it, they want to force their values on those in the military who don’t share them but must live with the consequences.  Liberals have a track record of placing their own values above military effectiveness.  There is little reason to believe they will handle repealing DADT any differently.  We must hold Congress accountable and insist these issues are considered and resolved before they implement this repeal and allow homosexuals to serve openly.

Military Will Write Rules on Gay Ban Repeal

December 21, 2010 Associated Press

WASHINGTON — No public displays of affection. No separate bathrooms. No harassment and no special treatment.

As the U.S. military begins to map out how it will implement the new edict allowing gays to serve openly, the first order of business is drafting the regulations. The rule changes under discussion won’t dictate how troops feel about the change, but will strictly enforce how they act on it.

From small wording tweaks and training programs to more complex questions about benefits and religion, the proposed guidelines demand that gays and lesbians be treated just like any other Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine. But they also leave the door open for some flexibility in room assignments or other instances when commanders believe it’s needed to maintain order and discipline in their units.

The Senate voted Saturday to repeal the ban on openly gay service, following earlier action by the House of Representatives. Fulfilling a 2008 campaign promise, President Obama plans to sign the bill into law on Wednesday at a Department of Interior ceremony. But in letters to the troops over the weekend, the four military service chiefs warned that the ban is still in place, and will be for some time to come.

Marine Combat Forces Say Putting Homosexuals in Their Units Will Hurt Their Effectiveness in the Field
(CNSNews.com)
 – 66.5 percent of U.S. Marine combat forces surveyed by a special Defense Department working group said that putting homosexuals in their units would hurt their effectiveness in the field, and 47.8 percent of Marines in combat units specifically said putting homosexuals in their units would hurt their effectiveness “in an intense combat situation.”

WE WILL SOONER ELECT A JEWISH PRESIDENT THAN A GAY ONE. HOW’S THAT SOUND TO YOUR PLO LOVING, ANTI-SEMETIC, DUMB ASS FROM WHICH YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO SPEAK?


GAY TIMES FOR HOMOSEXUALS IN THE MILITARY
The debate was epic; Congress hearing bills to lift the ban again and again, while senators had virtual fist fights on the Senate floor. Now, “don’t ask, don’t tell” has been repealed, and is now awaiting President Obama’s blessing before going into effect. Many are drawing a parallel between Obama sanctioning the measure and President Harry Truman signing a bill to implement racial equality in the military, but conservatives are having none of it. They claim that the military — not Congress — should be the ones to repeal the ban, which has been in place for 17 years.

Exactly when the new provision will be implemented is still somewhat unclear, as the military still has to certify readiness and physically implement the policy in its ranks. That transition is expected to be mostly smooth, however.

QUIT EQUATING HOMOSEXUALITY WITH FEMALE OR RACIAL EQUALITY. YES WE HAVE OVERCOME SHORTCOMINGS AND MADE THINGS RIGHT WITH REGARD TO THOSE 2 ISSUES OVER THE YEARS, NO DOUBT, BUT BEING BLACK OR BEING  A WOMEN ISN’T UN-NATURAL OR IMMORAL, AND THEREFORE MAKING THE COMPARISON BETWEEN THEM AND GAYS IS NOT ONLY ABSURD, BUT AN INSULT!

Barney Frank: Straight Soldiers Must Shower With Gays, But Not Women With Men 
(CNSNews.com)
 – Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) says he agrees with a Defense Department working group’s recommendation that straight and gay troops of the same gender should be required to shower together when the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law goes into effect. “What do you think happens in gyms all over America?” Frank said. “What do you think happens in the House of Representatives? Of course people shower with homosexuals. What a silly issue.”

BARNEY “BANKING QUEEN” FWANK, WE REALLY DETEST YOU (REGARDING EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU, NOT JUST YOUR BLATENT AND FLAGRANT HOMOSEXUALITY, BUT CERTAINLY BECAUSE OF YOUR CONSTANT USE OF SUCH AS A TRUMP CARD TO ABUSE YOUR OFFICE, AND THIS NATION).

    Repeal of Gay Ban Fails in Senate – and Code Pinko was there

    By LAURA MECKLER

    WASHINGTON—The Obama administration’s drive to allow gays to serve openly in the military suffered a major defeat Thursday, as Senate Republicans again blocked legislation that would repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

    DADT_SUB Senator McCain – Served his Country
     
    The repeal was part of a larger defense-policy bill, and while there appear to be sufficient votes in the Senate to overturn the policy on gays in the military, Republicans and Democrats couldn’t agree on the terms for debating the underlying legislation.

    “I am perplexed and frustrated that this important bill is going to become a victim of politics. We should be able to do better,” said Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine), who tried to negotiate an agreement for moving ahead. She voted with the Democrats on Thursday but was the only Republican to do so. The bill failed 57-40, three votes shy of the number needed to open debate on the legislation.

    Gay-rights advocates, discouraged by the vote, said they would continue pressing for action this year. “It’s not over,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese.

    President Barack Obama issued a statement urging the Senate to come back to the issue this year. “While today’s vote was disappointing, it must not be the end of our efforts,” he said.

    Supporters of repeal now plan to bring the measure to the floor as a stand-alone bill before the congressional session ends. As it became clear the vote was going down, Sens. Collins and Joe Lieberman (I., Conn.) hatched the alternative plan, aides said. Sen. Lieberman immediately presented it to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.,) who said he would bring the bill to the floor this year.

    Several Senate Republicans said they supported repealing the policy, but only if the Senate first considers tax and spending legislation.

    The underlying defense-policy bill has been passed by Congress annually for the last 48 years. Failure to do so this year would not jeopardize funding for the Pentagon, but would block certain changes, such as an increase in military pay.

    DADT Code Pink – Serves the Commies
     
    The “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which allows gays and lesbians to serve in the military but only if they keep their sexual orientation secret, was passed into law by Congress in 1993. Even though Mr. Obama and top military personnel want it changed, congressional action is necessary.

    Should Congress fail to act this year, the prospects for repeal are dim. Republicans generally support the existing policy, and aides to Rep. John Boehner, the presumptive next House Speaker, say he doesn’t intend to bring legislation changing it.

    In that case, advocates will look to the courts to end the 17-year-old ban, a prospect that worries the Pentagon, as military officials fear the Defense Department will be subjected to court orders in the next year first rescinding the policy and then putting it back in place. Already, a federal district court has ruled the policy unconstitutional, though that ruling has been put on hold.

    Officials have said if the military was given time for an orderly transition the policy could be changed with little risk. But morale could be hurt if a court orders a hasty change and doesn’t give the Pentagon time to conduct training of troops.

    In the meantime, the Pentagon has said only a handful of senior officials may approve discharges under the policy, in what could become a de facto moratorium on enforcement. Even so, new recruits still can’t join if they are openly gay.

    Pentagon officials declined to comment on Thursday’s vote.

    A few Republican senators and virtually all of the Democrats in the Senate support repealing the policy. But the Republicans, including Sens. Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, said they were unwilling to take up the defense bill until the Senate deals with legislation on taxes and federal spending.

    The repeal drive was backed by a lengthy military study of the views of servicemen and women that found combat readiness wouldn’t be harmed by repeal if the military was given time to prepare the force by conducting a training program. The study said most troops didn’t care if gays served openly, although nearly 60% of the Marine Corps and Army soldiers in combat arms units predicted problems would arise.

    The issue has been highly charged on both sides, with advocates of repeal saying the policy is unfair and unwise, and supporters saying that it shouldn’t be changed during a time of war.

    “We need to match our policy with our principles and finally say in the United States anyone who stands up to serve our country should be welcome,” Sen. Reid said ahead of Thursday’s vote.

    Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the only Democrat to vote with Republicans on Thursday, said the policy should eventually be repealed but not now. “It’s a timeliness issue with me,” he said. “There’s a war going on.”

    Do Ask, Do Tell?

    The only legitimate DADT survey is…

    “A good moral character is the first essential in a man…” –George Washington

     Alexander · Thursday, December 9, 2010

     New Unit Service Patch

    Now that Republicans have temporarily halted Barack Hussein Obama’s effort to increase income taxes, let’s see what they can do to stop his effort to undermine the moral character of military combat units.

    By way of defining the so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) debate, let me say that it is not about the sexual habits of consenting adults. This debate is about making the normalization of homosexuality a matter of law in regard to Defense Department personnel, practices and policy.

    In order to provide context for this debacle, here is a brief background.

    One of Obama’s earliest campaign coming-out pledges was his promise to “end discrimination against gays and lesbians” who want military jobs. That “discrimination” was enacted by the Clinton administration and codified as law in Section 654 U.S. Code Title 10, which states, “The presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.”

    On 12 October this year, DADT policy was subject to an injunction by U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips in California. Phillips, a Clinton appointee, ordered the Department of Defense “immediately to suspend and discontinue any investigation, or discharge, separation, or other proceeding, that may have been commenced” under Section 654.

    However, because the Obama administration wants full faith and credit for ending the policy, they actually asked Phillips for a stay of her injunction, which she denied. Obama then appealed to the San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which agreed to enter a stay so Obama could reclaim his political turf. U.S. appellate courts have consistently upheld this law.

    In response, a homosexual advocacy group, Log Cabin Republicans, appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to vacate (overrule) the stay. In mid-November, SCotUS refused to lift the Ninth Circuit’s stay.

    In the meantime, trying to beat the courts to the punch so Obama could curry favor with one of his most fervent constituencies, his DoD appointees released a “survey” which they claim justifies lame-duck Senate action to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” before the 112th Congress (with a strong House Republican majority and six more Senate Republicans) is seated. (Soon-to-be-Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House had already voted to repeal on 27 May of this year.)

    “Today I call on the Senate to act as soon as possible so I can sign this repeal into law this year and ensure that Americans who are willing to risk their lives for their country are treated fairly and equally,” Obama said this week.

    There is no question that Obama, given the beating he’s taken from his heretofore stalwart Leftist cadres on his broken promise to raise taxes, desperately wants to “win” the DADT debate, even though less than one percent of forced military discharges are related to sexual orientation, and the majority of those are, according to DoD, “uncontested and processed administratively.”

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates lamented that there is a “very real possibility that this change would be imposed immediately by judicial fiat” and noted that such a “disruptive and damaging scenario” would be “most hazardous to military morale, readiness, and battlefield performance.”

    So if the courts, instead of Obama, lift Section 654, it would be “hazardous to military morale, readiness, and battlefield performance”?

    That is quite a revelation from an administration, which, in the Leftist tradition, seeks to use judicial diktat to amend the so-called “living constitution” and wholly subvert Rule of Law as established by our Founders.

    For the record, the reliability of that voluntary DoD survey as a catalyst for revoking Section 654 is, at best, highly questionable. Of the 400,000 surveys that were distributed to military personnel and their families, only 115,000 were returned. That does not constitute an authentic statistical study with a genuine margin of error.

    Questionable reliability notwithstanding, the Leftmedia’s reports implied that 70 percent of respondents answered that open homosexuality would either have a positive or mixed effect on morale. However, those same results could just as accurately have been reported as 70 percent of respondents answered that open homosexuality would either have a negative or mixed effect on morale. In fact, 30 percent answered “positive” and 30 percent answered “negative,” while a plurality answered “mixed.”

    Gates did, however, admit that there was a much higher level of “discontent, discomfort and resistance to changing the current policy” among combat specialty units and the Service Chiefs, and added, “These findings do lead me to conclude that an abundance of care and preparation is required if we are to avoid a disruptive and potentially dangerous impact on the performance of those serving at the tip of the spear in America’s wars.”

    To that end, I would argue that the only legitimate DADT survey that matters would be a scientific survey of frontline combat forces, warfighters, not rear echelon support personnel. Indeed, if our fighting forces exist for the purpose of winning wars, then unit cohesion and combat readiness must be sacrosanct. Any new policy that would be a “disruptive and potentially dangerous impact” on those essential attributes must be opposed.

    By no means am I suggesting that Uniformed Service in a National Guard Armory in Kansas is any less honorable than serving in the Korengal Valley in eastern Afghanistan, but it is much less dangerous.

    Complicating matters for Obama is the little-reported fact that, while he is advocating for homosexuals in the military, one who made it through the screening process, PFC Bradley Manning, is facing charges for unauthorized use and disclosure of classified information (UCMJ Articles 92 and 134). Manning will likely face charges of treason after taking it upon himself (with the “moral support” of his “self-described drag queen” partner) to release volumes of classified reports to WikiLeaks info anarchist Julian Assange, who himself may also face charges of espionage if he is extradited to the U.S.

    George Washington, Commander of the Continental Army and our first Commander in Chief, offered this timeless observance: “The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality.”

    Unfortunately, our current CINC’s national policy positions are a reflection of his corrupt, capricious and unprincipled private morality.

    At War With the Military

    By William Murchison · Tuesday, December 7, 2010

    The motive behind the proposed repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy is, hmmm … what, exactly?

    A stronger military? Better projection of American might in tight corners like Afghanistan and South Korea?

    Well, not precisely any of that. The whole idea of opening military enlistment to professed gays is the furtherance of the gay rights cause. It is what you might call an odd motive indeed for adoption of a military policy with mainly cultural implications.

    DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL, DON’T CALL OUR TROOPS HOMOPHOBES

      by Ann Coulter

    The Pentagon’s poll on “don’t ask, don’t tell” is beyond idiotic. Instead of asking whether the troops support repeal of DADT, the Pentagon asked only if they can learn to play nice with the gays.

    Even more absurdly, the Pentagon polled all military “personnel” — and their spouses! Only a small portion of what is known as “the military” actually does the fighting. The rest is a vast bureaucracy along the lines of the DMV.

    Today’s military features “victim advocates” and sensitivity training facilitators, the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services personnel and a million other goo-goo positions. How did we ever take the shores of Normandy without a phalanx of “sensitivity training” counselors?

    No one has any need to be reassured that the military’s “social action” staff will enjoy working with gays. Whatever a career in “social action” entails, it better be gay-friendly. Frankly, it’s appalling the Pentagon’s poll of all military personnel and their families didn’t produce better numbers for the gays.

    We’re interested in what the men who fight think. As the Pentagon study itself reports: “A higher percentage of service members in war-fighting units predicted negative effects.”

    So gays openly serving in the military will harm the “war-fighting” part of the military, but the “social action” part will thrive!

    Naturally, Marines are the most resistant to overturning “don’t ask, don’t tell,” with 58 percent of those in combat opposed.

    Who cares if the Pentagon’s sexual harassment task force supports gays in the military? The combat units don’t, and they’re the ones who do the job. The rest of us shouldn’t get to vote on gays in the military any more than we get to vote on the choreography of “Chicago.”

    Military combat is a very specialized field comparable to nothing in civilian life. There has to be a special bond among warriors — and only one kind of bond. The soldierly bond gets confused if some guys think their comrades are hot or if they suspect their superior is having a relationship with a fellow soldier.

    It’s the same confusion that results from putting girls in the military. When an officer makes a decision, nothing should enter into it except his views on the best military strategy.

    The military part of the military has valid reasons for wanting to separate the idea of martial ardor and sexual attraction. Combat units can’t have anything that interferes with unit cohesion, such as, for example, platoon members who are dating one another. Racial prejudice is not the same thing as sexual attraction, so please stop telling us this is just like integrating blacks in the military.

    A Military Times survey in 2005 found that nearly half of all women in the military claim to have been the victim of sexual harassment — ludicrously more than women in civilian life. By contrast, two-thirds of minorities said they were treated better in the military than in society at large.

    The Pentagon’s report found that service members “repeatedly” said that allowing gays to serve openly would “lead to widespread and overt displays of effeminacy,” as well as “harassment” and unwelcome advances. (To which I would add, “and the occasional leak of massive amounts of classified documents.”)

    Gays in the military understand this better than heterosexuals in civilian life. According to the Pentagon’s survey, only 15 percent of gays currently serving said they would want their units to know they’re gay. (Also, 2 percent of gays currently serving giggled when asked about their “unit,” which is down from 5 percent from last year.)

    There are far more discharges for pregnancy and “parenthood” than for homosexuality. In the past five years, less than 1 percent of all unplanned military discharges (i.e. not due to retirement or completion of service) were for homosexuality.

    Here’s a record of the discharges for 2008, according to the Defense Department:

    — Drugs: 5,627
    — Serious offenses: 3,817
    — Weight standards: 4,555
    — Pregnancy: 2,353
    — Parenthood: 2,574
    — Homosexuality: 634

    The main lesson from these figures isn’t that we should have gays openly serving in the military, but that we need to get girls out of the military, inasmuch as they are constantly being discharged for pregnancy, parenthood and weight issues.

    According to a 1998 Department of Defense report, most discharges based on homosexuality involved “junior personnel with very little time in the military” and “the great majority of discharges for homosexual conduct are uncontested and processed administratively.” More than 98 percent of discharges for homosexuality were honorable.

    So gays and girls can join the military, get taxpayers to foot the bill for their education and then, when it comes time to serve, announce that they’re gay or pregnant and receive an honorable discharge. Indeed, there’s no proof that all the discharges for homosexuality involve actual homosexuals.

    Why can’t the Army and Marines have their own rules? Why does everything have to be the same? Whatever happened to “diversity”?

    Maybe we could have an all-gay service! They’d be allowed to wear camouflage neckerchiefs (a la Paul Lynde) and camo capri pants. To avoid any sexual harassment claims, they’d have to have their own barrack, which we could outfit with a dance club, a cosmo bar and a counseling center called “The Awkward Place.” Their band would mostly play show tunes, and soldiers captured by the enemy would be taught to reveal only their name, rank and seasonal color analysis (“I am Private First Class Jeffrey Smith and I’m a ‘winter.'”)

    They wouldn’t be allowed in combat, however, for the same reason women aren’t –- it takes them too long to get ready.

    Most people have no clue what military life is like, least of all the opinion makers in New York, Los Angeles and the nation’s capital. The military is not representative of the country at large. It is disproportionately rural, small-town, Southern and Hispanic.

    We ask our troops to do a lot for very little money. Sometimes they die for us. The least Democrats could do is not pass grandstanding bills while self-righteously denouncing our servicemen as homophobes.

    Real Pentagon Poll: 91% of Service Members Reject Homosexual Leaders: 1 in 4 Would Quit

    Pentagon Releases ‘Don’t Ask’ Report

    Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” has long been a priority for the Obama administration’s national defense team. In this week’s skewed and biased report from the Pentagon on the effect of repeal, the administration trumpets its assertion that it “just doesn’t matter.” The report is filled with highly subjective responses to questionable scenarios that have little if any relation to the reality of the impact on national defense.

    For example, when asked if DADT is repealed, how would your job performance be affected by repeal, 72 percent gave a neutral response, while 15 percent thought it would be negative. Just 3 percent thought repeal would be positive. Among those performing combat duties, 60 percent said repeal would negatively affect their unit. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says those concerns “do not present an insurmountable barrier to a successful repeal,” but is that an acceptable risk to accomplish what is clearly nothing more than a sociopolitical goal?

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) insists, “Our Defense Department supports repealing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.'” Actually, though the SecDef supports that repeal, keeping in step with his boss, Barack Obama, the Service Chiefs, Air Force Association, Association of the U.S. Navy, American Legion, National Military Family Association, National Association for Uniformed Services, Reserve Officers Association, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and a majority of military service personnel do not support repeal. But what do they know?

    In that light, perhaps we also need to address the “Don’t Ask” mentality in a matter that really counts. Several ideas have been floated recently about ways to cut costs for military spending, including asking for increases to TRICARE for service members and retirees. What’s more, outgoing House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) floated the idea of a military pay freeze to go with the civilian one announced this week. Clearly, Democrats “support our troops.”

    Yes, budget cuts must come because we cannot continue along this path of fiscal irresponsibility. However, in the words of Norbert R. Ryan Jr., a retired vice admiral and president of the Military Officers Association of America, “Don’t ask the folks who have done so much more for this country, who have been called to act since 9/11, to be the first in line to give some more.”

    Service Chiefs to Speak Out at DADT Hearing

     The top uniformed officers of the Army and the Marine Corps say letting gays serve openly in a time of war would be divisive and difficult, sharply challenging a new Pentagon study that calculates the risk as low. Their assessment, expected at a Senate hearing today, was likely to become political ammunition for those fighting the “don’t ask” repeal.

    Mullen: Don’t Like ‘Don’t Ask?’ Don’t Serve!

    Agree with us or get out! That was the stunning message from Adm. Mike Mullen at today’s emotional Senate hearing over “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” In round one of a two-day discussion over the Pentagon’s report, it was clear from the outset that the President’s social agenda is more important to the military’s political appointees than any concern for the well-being of our troops, their mission and our nation’s security. If lifting the ban causes some people to “quit the service,” Mullen said indifferently, “we’ll deal with that.” Soldiers who don’t want to live, shower, and fight with homosexuals should look for a new job, he told senators. “Repeal of the law will not prove unacceptable risk… And families will not encourage their loved ones to leave the service in droves.”

    According to the Pentagon’s own report, a whopping 12% of spouses would urge their husband or wife to do just that! But despite all the evidence to the contrary, Adm. Mullen insists that “War does not stifle change; it demands it. It does not make it harder; it facilitates it.” Tell that to the 60% of Army and Marine fighters who are fiercely opposed to repeal. Their views, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) argued, “should not be considered lightly.” As Gen. Carl Mundy, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, warned in a letter to the Senate just this week, “You… are moving [toward repeal] without any compelling reason to do so other than because of the demands by small, but highly vocal and financially influential special interest groups whose objectives go far beyond acceptance for military service.” To hear more from General Mundy, click on the video below to watch FRC’s special military webcast–which also featured Senate Armed Services Committee Member Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and other veterans with deep concerns about the Pentagon’s survey, the direction of debate, and the serious consequences for our troops.

      

     

    U.S. Marine Corps Commandant Splits with President – Opposes Homosexuals in the Military

    People - Gen. James Amos, USMCIn open defiance of President Obama, the Secretary of Defense, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the U.S. Marine Corps’ new commandant told reporters that open homosexuality in the military could be disastrous to our combat effectiveness.  “There is nothing more intimate than young men and young women — and when you talk of infantry, we’re talking our young men — laying out, sleeping alongside of one another and sharing death, fear and loss of brothers,” Lt. General James Amos said. “I don’t know what the effect of that will be on cohesion. I mean, that’s what we’re looking at. It’s unit cohesion, it’s combat effectiveness.” Read More

    The actual survey numbers of the Pentagon study show that allowing gays to openly serve in the military would be a national security disaster. According to the survey and study, titled “Report of the Comprehensive Review of the Issues Associated with a Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (Report):

    • Nearly 60% of those in the Marine and Army combat units thought repealing the DADT law would harm their unit’s ability to fight on the battlefield. 
    • Up to a half-million service members may not reenlist should the ban be repealed (A disaster for our all–volunteer army that would require re-institution of the Draft). 
    • 91% would reject homosexual leaders.
    • 71% would not share showers with homosexuals.

    Senator John McCain spoke out on behalf of our combat service members.  He continued his strong opposition to repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law, and questioned Gates and Mullen on why they were not paying more attention to the negative impact a repeal of DADT would have on our combat troops.

    Health Risks are Perilous

    AIDS would increase in the military once homosexuals were openly admitted into the military and restraints on their sexual behavior are removed.  Heterosexual service members would be more likely to contract AIDS through injuries and battlefield transfusions. Drug abuse and suicides would increase as well, resulting in a dramatic increase in medical care costs. Ironically, the repeal would come at a time when Secretary Gates is seeking to cut and contain health costs in military.

    A Radical anti-Christian Policy

    To go along with repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law, the Department of Defense recommended elimination of longstanding military laws prohibiting consensual sodomy and adultery.

    An overwhelming majority of America’s Armed Forces are Christian.  Yet the Report brushed aside the religious and moral objections to homosexuality by service members.  Admitting that a large number of military chaplains believe that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination, and are required by God to condemn it as such, the Report argues that their objections can be overcome by education and training (brainwashing?).

    More Change You Can’t Believe (In)

    Richard Kantro

    It is increasingly difficult not to see the Obama administration, all its deceptions, and all their manifestations, as one giant psyop.  Anyone who, along with his disbelief, still floats suspended — in the glowing, airy miasma of Obamaspeak — will likely suffer a lacerating and painful landing on the crags of reality if gravity ever finally reclaims him.  (Consider, for example, that said speaker recently admitted, after 2 years of fomenting the contrary impression, that “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects.”)

    Unpleasant, though, is the truth that in addition to destroying our economy; vitiating our currency; devaluing our citizenship; lauding tyrants; suing our states; squelching our vitality; abandoning our borders; undoing our sovereignty; extolling our enemies; degrading our friends; and demeaning our pride, the Unpedigreed-in-Chief and his disgraceful coterie of legislative remoras and scoundrel-appointees are also subverting what one would like to think ought to remain among the most obdurately traditional entities:  the US military.

    Now cometh Defense Secretary Robert C. Gates to a Pentagon news conference on Tuesday, 30-November.  In his hand is a DoD screed which purports to indicate that a large majority of military service members would have little problem in the long run if the don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy were to be repealed and homosexuals allowed to serve openly.

    Put aside the tendentious “polling” techniques (how could these not have been coercive or fabricated?) which were likely used in crafting such a report (see the report here). Put aside the momentous historico-psycho-socio-religio-politico-cultural-moral-military objections and caveats which publicly will not but should be asked — and which doubtless privately will be — about the long-term wisdom of dropping such a wrenching, seismic, and hitherto unthinkable cultural bomb upon a captive population sworn to obey.  And put aside whatever deleterious effects upon military morale, comity, and effectiveness — not to mention future enlistments — such a move might well have.

    Rather, consider the source of the quote — Secretary Gates — from yesterday’s press conference:  “A law or policy that forces people to lie gives me a problem.  Telling the truth is an important value.”  And remember the November, 2009 quote from General George Casey, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army?  He said of the Fort Hood Islamo-jihadist murderer that, “what happened at Ft. Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here.”

    Policy which hinders enormous cultural destruction upsets the fastidious Secretary Gates.  Lies which palliate the malefactions of enemies — who he will not name — enchant Chief of Staff Casey, that cherisher of diversity.  Two high defense officals both subverted — doubtless by withering political pressures — into doing the bidding of their master, which apparently is not prohibitively odious for them.  Ah, for the vanished days of the principled high-level resignation!  For a stand-up general who would stand up!  Don’t look to such latter-day military men as these to tell the truth — about anything.

    Press Release:  The REAL Pentagon Poll:  91% reject open homosexual service.
    [Forward this email to all reporters and bloggers you know.]

    Former Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt just read the full Pentagon report on repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and here’s his analysis:

    “Don’t believe the phony liberal media reports that 70% of troops support open homosexual service, because that statistic included ‘mixed’ feelings. A closer reading of the fine print in the newly released Pentagon survey shows our troops answered as follows:

    Q45.  If you had a leader whom you believed was gay or lesbian, 9% positive, 91% negative or mixed effect on unit’s performance.

    Q68c.  85% of Marine Combat Arms, 75% of Army Combat Arms, 64% overall say Negative, Very Negative, or Mixed impact on unit trust.

    Q90.   29% would take no action if assigned open showers.  71% would shower at other times, complain to leadership or chaplains, don’t know or do “something else” [including violence.]

    Q81.   24% will leave the military or think about leaving sooner than planned.  [One half million troops will QUIT early, destroying national security.]

    Q80.   6% will positively recommend service to others after repeal.  94% feel negative, mixed, no effect, or don’t know about recommending military service to others.  [Destroying recruiting efforts.]

    Q66.  If open homosexuality impacts combat performance, is the impact….9% positive, 91% negative or mixed impact.

    Q71.  11% feel positive or very positive about open homosexuality in field environment or out at sea.  60% negative or mixed.  19% no effect.

    Q73.   5% say repeal would positively boost morale.  41% say negative or mixed impact morale.  Rest no effect or don’t know.

    “In summary, the real stats prove our nation faces a NATIONAL SECURITY DISASTER if Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is repealed, and open homosexual aggression is forced upon our troops against their will.”

    TAKE ACTION!  CALL THE 9 SENATORS LISTED BELOW, OR SIGN THE PETITION at www.PrayInJesusName.org which has auto-faxed 169,000 petitions to Congress opposing repeal, and defending our troops against open homosexual aggression.

    For media interviews contact former Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt at chaplaingate@yahoo.com, 719-360-5132 cell.

    Wa. Post lists two Republican traitors Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME, 202-224-2523) and Richard Lugar (R-IN, 202-224-4814), who each hinted they will vote to homosexualize our military if Reid allows them to attach pork barrel spending amendments for their states. That makes the whip-count 57, just three votes short of 60. Other key Senators include Olympia Snowe (R-ME, 202-224-5344), George Voinovich (R-OH, 202-224-3353), James Webb (D-VA, 202-224-4024), Mark Pryor (D-AR, 501-324-6336 and 202-224-2353), and outgoing Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR, 501-375-2993 and 202-224-4843) who have all waffled on the issue.  Also new Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV, 202-224-3954) was just seated, and incoming Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL, 202-224-2854) was seated on Tuesday, so please call both today to please FILIBUSTER AND VOTE AGAINST repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. There’s the list.   Eleven phone calls.  How many can you call this morning? 

    Retiring Marine Commandant General James Conway just told Fox News that “90 to 95 percent of the Marines” are against repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, citing impromptu surveys he had conducted by a “show of hands” at town hall meetings.

    Sen. John McCain told CNN the troop poll was biased for homosexuals: “it should have asked whether a policy change was the right thing to do, rather than how it should be implemented…I want to know the effect on battle effectiveness and morale, not on how best to implement a change in policy…I don’t think that’s a lot to ask when we have our young men and women out there serving and fighting, and tragically some of them dying.”  Sen. McCain is leading a filibuster attempt, and with liberal Republican Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL, (202-224-2854) being seated Monday, his vote is critical to pass or fail the gay agenda. Let’s take action to help our troops this week…

    The homosexual newspaper Washington Blade is boasting of a claim by Sen. Joseph Liberman (I-CT) who said “I am confident that we have more than 60 votes prepared to take up the defense authorization bill with the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ if only there will be a guarantee of a fair and open amendment process.”  Lieberman revealed some private conversations he’s had with Republican Senators Susan Collins (RINO-ME) and Richard Lugar (RINO-IN), and unnamed “other” Republicans [we list them below] whom he quoted as saying  they “would be open to moving forward with…repeal provided there’s an ‘open amendment process’ in bringing the bill to the floor.”  [In other words, they’ll sell out their principles for homosexual pork money.]  I count 57, he counts 60, we’re in a dogfight.

    The new Commandant of the Marine Corps, 4-star General James F. Amos, effectively asked YOU to help his Marines last week, when he advised Senators to support Senator McCain’s filibuster of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and to keep open homosexual aggression out of our military. 

    “There is nothing more intimate than young men and young women — and when you talk of infantry, we’re talking our young men — laying out, sleeping alongside of one another and sharing death, fear and loss of brothers,” said General Amos. “I don’t know what the effect of that will be on cohesion. I mean, that’s what we’re looking at. It’s unit cohesion, it’s combat effectiveness.”  In other words, repealing Don’t Ask will cost lives in battle.  

    Meanwhile the New York Times revealed Senator Harry Reid’s (D-NV) new strategy to force the homosexual agenda through this lame-duck Senate:  “Mr. Reid could try to bring the defense bill to the floor under an open amendment process, a move that Republicans presumably would not block but that would mean committing a large block of time to debate. In that case, opponents of repeal would not be able to pass an amendment stripping it out of the bill.”  In other words, don’t believe the liberal press reports that Reid can’t get this done….they are closer than you think, so we must continue this fight. 

    More than 60 retired military chaplains have written President Obama, requesting he not repeal the 1993 Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell law that forbids open homosexuality in the military, because allowing open homosexuality will cause anti-Christian persecution of chaplains.

    The letter was signed by retired military chaplains from various denominational backgrounds, including Southern Baptists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Lutherans.

    After Don’t Ask is repealed, “if chaplains answer such questions [during counseling sessions] according to the tenets of their faith, stating that homosexual relationships are sinful and harmful, then they run the risk of career-ending accusations of insubordination and discrimination,” the letter said.

    “By raising homosexual behavior to the same protected status as innate, innocuous characteristics like race and gender, the armed forces will cast the sincerely held religious beliefs of many chaplains and Service members as rank bigotry comparable to racism,” the letter said.

    “Put most simply, if the government normalizes homosexual behavior in the armed forces, many (if not most) chaplains will confront a profoundly difficult moral choice: whether they are to obey God or to obey men,” the letter said. “This forced choice must be faced, since orthodox Christianity — which represents a significant percentage of religious belief in the armed forces — does not affirm homosexual behavior.

    Let’s help defend our military chaplains today…

    Four Top Generals were ignored by Democrats who betrayed our troops.  They said:

    “This is not the time to perturb the force that is, at the moment, stretched by demands in Iraq  and Afghanistan and elsewhere without careful deliberation.”  Gen. Norton Schwartz, Air Force Chief of Staff

    “Serious concerns about the impact of repeal of the law on a force that’s fully engaged in two wars and has been at war for eight-and-a-half years.”  Gen. George Casey, Army Chief of Staff

    “I think the current policy works… At this point…my best military advice to this Committee, to the [Defense] Secretary, and to the President would be to keep the law such as it is.”  Gen. James Conway, Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps

    “There has never really been an assessment of the force that serves….Equally important are the feelings of the families that support that force.” Adm. Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations

    WHY KEEP OPEN HOMOSEXUALITY OUT OF THE MILITARY?

    Four reasons:  1) Allowing open homosexuality especially hurts unit cohesion and would cost American lives in war, damaging the trust shared in close proximity, common sleeping quarters and showering facilities that are unavoidable in close combat.  2) Men and women do not share the same showers for obvious reasons, so why force men to share showers with openly homosexual men?  This fact alone would hurt recruiting.  3) The rampant spread of the HIV-AIDS virus contaminates the blood often shared by necessity on the battlefield.  Soldiers requiring blood-transfusions and medics would be immediately endangered.  4) “Gay promotion quotas” would soon be forced upon presently impartial promotion boards, causing a burdensome rise in sexually-charged “equal opportunity” complaints against commanders, especially those who offend gays by inadvertently speaking of their traditional Judeo-Christian faith.

    Christians must be aware of the reality in America today.
    As documented in the plethora of news articles linked below, in states where same-sex civil unions (‘marriage’ by another name) is the law (such as Illinois, this month), every court case brought by homosexual activists MUST be ruled in their favor because equivalency of homosexual behavior is THE LAW.
    If churches continue to fear the controversy of the culture in which we live, children will suffer now, and within a few years, the family unit will cease to exist for the majority of the citizens — do Christians have concern for our neighbors, or do we only care about ourselves?  We think we can shelter our own offspring (not really), but what about the kids next door?  Don’t they deserve our help?
    In this first article (click the headline), you can see video of parents speaking to the School Board, expressing opposition to the homosexual indoctrination curriculum, but the superintendent says that the school does NOT have to notify the parents in advance, and that there will be no “opt-out” provision given:  Children must be indoctrinated that homosexual behavior is normal and natural.
    Homosexual Indoctrination Mandated for Schools
    Just as in Massachusetts, schools in states with same-sex ‘marriage’ and other pro-homosexual laws are required to force homosexual indoctrination on students and are restricted from informing parents in advance, and parents are not permitted to pull their children from the indoctrination.
    American Voters Getting Message – Gay Agenda Targets Children (Nov. 2009)
    This article (click headline above), along with the long list of links within, provides extensive documentation of the liberal campaign to destroy the traditional family structure (the basic building block of any civilization).
    New Jersey Law to Force Gay Agenda in Schools
    The New Jersey legislature’s “Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights” codifies sexual deviancy for public school students, starting at kindergarten.
    Teacher Pushing Gay Agenda Suspended
    When a Catholic student commented that he doesn’t accept homosexuality as normal, the teacher expelled him from the classroom, but the public school board said it was the teacher who deserved a suspension.
    Illinois Civil Unions Law, so Now to “Gay Marriage”
    Now that newly elected Democrat Gov. Quinn successfully “twisted arms” in the legislature to pass the Civil Unions SB1716, against the will of the Illinois citizens whom they represent, the chant has begun to enact full-blown same-sex “marriage.”
    Courts May Legalize Polygamy in Canada
    Having legalized same-sex marriage over five years ago, Canada is moving to the next stage. Once marriage is defined beyond one man and one woman, there’s no logical argument against re-defining marriage to mean almost anything. Ultimately, marriage becomes meaningless — that’s the Gay Agenda.

    Obama Agenda More Important than Combat Effectiveness

    People - Military Service Chiefs

    One message was loud and clear from yesterday’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) law: Secretary of Defense Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mullen care very little about what our combat troops think about the repeal of the law or its immediate harm to our national defense. The actual survey numbers of the Pentagon study show that allowing gays to openly serve in the military would be a national security disaster.

     

    Hollywood is allowed to discriminate based on anything.  “Sorry, but you’re too black.”  “You’re good, but you’re too fat.”  “I like you, but you aren’t pretty enough.”  Hollywood can pick whomever they want, for whatever reason and with no repercussions.  Discrimination for the sake of art.
    But the military, the people who protect the nation, can’t choose whom they want now that gays got their win with the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.  Now they can be openly gay.  What exactly is openly gay, anyway?
    Gays are individuals and not defined by their sexuality — at least not the smart ones.  So there is a wide spectrum to being gay.
    When I think of being openly gay, I think about the black folks who say to me that I don’t “act black.”  Sure I do.  I am openly black, but being black doesn’t define me.  Being American does, as does being human.
    I believe that most gays in the military couldn’t care less about exposing their sexuality and are content to just do their jobs.  I say this because I don’t walk through life being black
    Unlike Hollywood, where being gay or bi considered à la mode, the job of the military is to create military “personnel” regardless of sexual orientation, ethnicity, creed, or whatever.  Black soldiers are not walking around saying, “I’m a black colonel.”  All the military cares about is the “colonel” part.  Truth be told, the military is more concerned with one’s competence.  The same would be true of “gays,” as most military men and women don’t care what type of sex another soldier is having, as long as that sex doesn’t infringe on them.
    I suspect that the military has a much better “gaydar” than gays think.  Their peers know who is gay in the military, or at least they have their suspicions.  There are high-ranking gays in the military now.  The woman who filed the suit to repeal DADT is a retired officer.  I’d be willing to bet you that most of the people who promoted her already knew that she had her penchant for the ladies.  Her gayness apparently didn’t negatively affect her career.  It would appear that the only person concerned about her gayness was she herself.
    So what liberals have done for the military is what they have been doing to all of America for decades: injecting cancer.  Soon promotions will be measured by how many “gays” we have at a certain rank, or “I didn’t get this promotion or billet because I am gay.”  Gays will require their own facilities, and they could end up where black people were in the ’40s…segregated.
    What’s interesting about DADT when compared to blacks being in the military is that blacks had to endure a very different form of discrimination.  Discrimination against blacks was called “Don’t Ask, We Already Know.”
    Blacks had been discriminated in the military for decades.  Be it military or civilian, with rare exception,[1] people already knew who the blacks were in the military.  Yet somehow, in what liberals believe is the most racist country in the world with the most heinous military, blacks managed to get a black commander in chief[2] and a black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff[3].
    It has been argued to me that DADT is needed so that gay military personnel can invite their significant others to events.  Not true.  Gay military personnel could have appeared with their same sex-partners, and under DADT, nobody could question either of them.  It was just two buddies hanging out or “girls’ night out” as far as DADT regulations were concerned.  But don’t expect bases to look like the Mission District of San Francisco, because public displays of affection are forbidden by everybody, gay or straight.  No fraternization or “sororization,” either.
    I’m not sure what this new development will do to morale within the military.  I do believe that it’s possible there will be an “us versus them” mentality amongst homosexuals, which cannot be good for anybody.
    The military which is supposed to protect us now has become a victim of the liberal agenda.  Go ahead; declare your open gayness, whatever that means.  But don’t expect the military to act according to the gay agenda like people do in the civilian world.
    Legislating based on sexual proclivity is wrong.  Few jobs require knowledge of one’s sexual nature, and most that do are located near Hollywood.  Repeal of DADT is just the liberals’ way of attacking an institution — an institution that was not discriminating against gays in the first place.  The military is like Hollywood: they have a set of guidelines they felt made them more effective. 
    Turnabout is fair play, however.  I say we attack the liberals’ institutions — the media, Hollywood, academia.  Let’s sue them for discriminating against conservatives, straights, Republicans…after all, those are creeds!
    Let show liberals that we really understand the art of war.
    That’s my rant!
    Kevin Jackson is author of The BIG Black Lie and The Black Sphere blog.
    Along with some other very good points, the author takes exception to the arguement that bringing gay “equality” to the military is similar to/on the same level of – women in the military. We take exception too as we’ve noted before, just like racial equality, being black ect or female is quite natural – homosexuality is not and is a subject matter that is in a class of it’s own whether anyone likes it or not!
