At the time that it was created, there were frequent beatings of gay personnel, and some were even fatal. So the policy was created in an attempt to protect gay military members.
Okay, I get that. I see the good intentions there. But…
“Hey gay person. Look, the straight peeps here want to kill you. Yeah, they’re threatened by you for some reason. So, I’m gonna try to help you out. Be something you’re not. Here, here…here’s the closet door. Get back in, buddy. So you don’t get beaten to an unrecognizable pulp”
Yeeeeah, um…that’s not flying with me. HOW ABOUT…instead of forcing gays to conform to our intolerant society, we work on not allowing anyone to brutally kill gay people?
I mean, really, the person (who yes, happens to be gay) is fighting for THIS country and is fighting WITH you, on YOUR side, and you’re gonna try to kill him or her? Do you need your head checked? You’re supposed to kill the enemy you turd!!! And then this country responds by saying, alright well we certainly can’t do anything to make the straight people angry, sooo let’s just force gay people back into the closet. Wow, way to go.
Anyway, in 2010 the government did redeem itself by repealing the policy. At the time, Obama declared that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” weakens our national security. You mean forcing certain members of the military to hide their identities isn’t good for unity or morale? WOW, go figure…
Last week, the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals demanded a halt on the ban against openly gay troops. However, Obama is asking the court to reconsider this.
You’ve GOT to be kidding me.
You know what I call that Obama? Flip-flopping. You know, what fish do when they’re out of water? You’re a fish out of water Obama.
I just don’t understand politicians. Is there not a reasonable one out there? Are they ALL on crazy pills??
So, we’ll see how this all plays out. Meanwhile, let’s keep drilling into people’s heads that gays are NOT the spawn of Satan. Hopefully you’ve heard about the 15-year-old gay teen that was shot to death by a classmate.
“King, an openly gay teenager, was seated in the middle of the classroom with two dozen students and their teacher when McInerney allegedly shot him in the back of the head, authorities said…After the first shot, King fell to the ground, and McInerney allegedly stood over him and shot again”
Kids murdering each other. Yep, America really is on the right track, huh??
