Skip to comments.Log Cabin Republicans Responds to State of the Union Address (demand legalizing homosex in military)
Posted on 01/28/2010 5:27:43 PM PST by DesertRenegade
President Obamas address to the nation tonight provides a stark contrast to the reality that all Americans not just gays and lesbians are living, comments Terry W. Hamilton. The increasingly dominant role of government in the daily life of gays and lesbians under President Obamas leadership has done nothing but put our community in jeopardy from his support of the Estate Tax, instructing his Administration to defend the failed Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy in court, to stifling small business development across the nation, all Americans should take heed to his overarching promises that are long on rhetoric and short on action.
Log Cabin Republicans national spokesperson Charles T. Moran, comments: President Obama is more concerned about protecting the rights of terrorists than he is about the rights of gay and lesbian Americans who are putting their lives on the line every day fighting to preserve peace and democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan, and who operate small businesses that are the backbone of the American economy.
President Obama in his address Wednesday night specifically advocated for a repeal of the discriminatory Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy, which he has reiterated on several occasions both as a candidate and as the President. In an alarming contradiction to his stated public policy position, President Obama has instructed his Justice Department to fight the only lawsuit in modern times challenging Dont Ask, Dont Tell, of which Log Cabin Republicans is the sole plaintiff.
Again, President Obama calls on Congress to do one thing, yet he instructs his Administration and his Justice Department to take the opposite action. Which way is it, President Obama? comments Moran.
The case in question, Log Cabin Republicans vs. the United States of America, is the first direct challenge to the Dont Ask, Dont Tell law filed in the wake of the Supreme Courts decision in Lawrence v. Texas. It is also the only contemporary legal challenge to this law to succeed at the district court level. One of the injured parties named in the case, Alexander Nicholson, is a former U.S. Army Human Intelligence Collector who speaks multiple languages, including Arabic, and who was fired because of the Dont Ask, Dont Tell law just six months after 9/11. Another injured party in the case, listed simply as John Doe, currently serves in the Armed Forces and would face a discharge if his identity were revealed.
No fags in my military. We did not like them back then and the troops don’t want to share showers and rooms with them now.
It appears as though the leftwing, liberal ‘RAT kooks have finally taken over the Log Cabin “republicans”.
Sincerely, W. Mitt Romney
I seem to recall the UCMJ laws do not permit this practice. This is typical of liberals; long held laws that stand in their way are either eliminated or bent to their own purposes.
Isn’t it ironic how groups that represent a minor percentage of the population are always demanding this and that. It’s getting to be ridiculous such as Illegal Aliens Rights groups demanding watering stations in the desert for illegal crossers. Maybe it’s time the majority of us start demanding what we want. For example, suppose the majority of white working males demanded an end to minority preferential treatment in job promotions in this country and then walked off the job for a week when they didn’t get what they wanted.
Another problem is the risk of introducing HIV into the blood supply. The FDA strictly bans all homosexuals from donating blood anywhere in the USA because of their increased risk. BO wants to now pump homosexual blood into the critical combat transfusion supply. That is pure insanity.
WHATEVER THE LOG CABIN “REPUBLICANS” SUPPORT; I SUPPORT THE OPPOSITE OF THIS DEM. GROUP!~
Gomer says “Hey”.
Gay Republicans. Now there’s a demographic with DOZENS of voters!
those of us who have served knwo this is a big mistake and will cause all sorts of problems
what’s next homo parties on base
homo pride parades on base
ignoring two homos having sex in a shower
if a homo gets a charge against him then the homo groups will say he is being picked on.
homo has a fight with a normal guy and we all know we fight with each other as tempers flare in the marines and army sometimes and we fight but drink together after, now what if I have a fight with a homo and then he states I beat him because he is a homo
will a homo officer give a promotion to his homo friend
those wanting this have forgot that this is women wanting to insert their penis into another mans ass plus they have never served .
they have no idea what it is like in the military and how we act, this is not civvy street where we should all get along this is the military where honesty is much more clear
there is so many problems
Gay Republicans. Now there’s a demographic with DOZENS of voters!
... and that’s not even counting Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Wonder when the first lawsuit will be filed demanding a free sex change operation for some mentally deranged soldier?
agreed maybe millions of us march to DC and camp there until he steps down and his radicals too
we have a few small groups representing a small % of the population getting what they want while we get told to piss off and be told off at his speeches
Everyone going to CPAC make sure you congratulate their homosexual activist sponsor "GOPROUD" on this huge win for them.
I don’t think that they took anything over—they were there second they were embraced under the “big tent” movement. All they needed was their nose under the tent and the right moment to make their move.
They will become a protected class within the military more than they are now. We’ll see congressional outlays for additional military construction of two man queer barracks rooms sooner or later in order to placate them and keep other troops from harassing them. This move also threatens retention rates more than multiple tours to Iraq and Afghanistan ever will. This is a really stupid move, but then we have a boy as CINC who’s never worn a U.S. military uniform a day in his life.
I have no problems with homosexuals in the military. The military is filled with them and I personally shared an open barracks with a half dozen. Everybody did their jobs and personal lives were conducted off base............nobody cared. So any claim that homosexuals in the military leads to a decrease in morale is bogus...........
In fact, my experience in the military shows me that politics, social issues, race and sexual identity all take a back seat to mission objectives and comaraderie............
Just keep in mind that the same arguments against homosexuals in the military were also to a certain extent once used against blacks.........and those proved bogus also.
Let’s see we already have rampant pregnancy so let’s exacerbate the destruction of our military by encouraging and protecting open homosexually. Heck if we are going to go down in flames let’s really go down in flames.
We have completely lost our minds in this nation.
