Posted on 12/01/2010 4:57:24 PM PST by jazusamo
The Pentagon on Tuesday released a long-awaited report intended to advance a key campaign promise made by then-Sen. Obama to the fringe activist groups that supported his presidential aspirations. Now as commander in chief, President Obama has made it clear to military brass that he expects them to embrace the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) agenda. It should come as no surprise that the release of the military's new "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" survey was carefully orchestrated to accomplish this mission.
From the outset, the Pentagon had no interest in eliciting honest responses from the troops about whether the law outlawing homosexual conduct in the ranks should be preserved or repealed. Instead, soldiers, airmen, sailors and Marines were addressed in terms implying that repeal is inevitable. The Obama administration leaked selected results to sympathetic media to create the illusion that the troops have no problem stacking the barracks and submarines with homosexuals. The final report's release is a last-ditch effort to provide Democratic members of Congress the cover they need to ram through the law's repeal in the lame-duck session.
It isn't going to work. A closer examination of the headline result shows that 63 percent of respondents live off-base or in civilian housing and consequently answered that a change in policy might not affect them. Those in combat roles - where unit cohesion and trust are life-and-death concerns - gave a different response. About half with combat experience said a change would have a negative or very negative impact in the field or at sea...

They will destroy the military for a pat on the back from Obama.
Gates is despicable. I saw him making the comment that “the American people have spoken.” Grinning like a fool. I have no respect for that man.
They are bureaucrats doing their masters bidding. They want to use the Armed Forces for social engineering. That is not why it’s there.
Gates and Mullen are to blame for going along with Obama and his thugs on this program of deceit. They are both despicable for not resisting and resigning if that was the only way to resist.
“There is no compelling reason to do this.” (Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness)
Except if the CIC wants to have...
“...hundreds of thousands of troops who, according to the results, would begin planning their exit from the military if the policy were changed.”
So, because we know the CIC does not really care about the gay lobby, and this is the only supporting action he has taken for them, then the reason must be the destruction of the greatest military on earth. Agreed?
I understand and agree though it’s so disappointing, especially now that we’ve had an all volunteer military for years. I’m sure that’s one of the reasons Zer0 and his bunch want this, to degrade our fine military.
Will they be able to “march” in parade with their twisting arms over their heads and their twisting legs going in the opposite direction?
Kinda reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25Qhbdijv5Y
Very sad indeed. My son went into the military under Reagan, reenlisted and then left once Clinton got into gear and tried to make the military into a bastion of affirmative action and stupid progressivism. In those days, btw, the favored affirmative action group was females (of any color).
My son said that the people who didn’t leave under Clinton (or who joined under Clinton) were essentially either those who agreed with this stuff or didn’t even want to think about it, or those who had a lot of years and didn’t want to surrender their pensions.
The latter group is gone, but I suspect that there are many from the Clinton era who are now in command positions and are probably just fine with this.
Gates highlighted the recommendations of the report putting a strong emphasis on education, training and leader development, with a solid road map for a successful full implementation of repeal, assuming that the military is given sufficient time and preparation to get the job done right.
The "EDUCATION" part is going to be the part that will be amazing! The soldier will now be "educated" in the "benefits" of being a homo. If a soldier has any moral beliefs relating to homosexuality he will be warned to not speak them so as not to "offend" the Rump Rangers.
Bottom line: The Rump Rangers "morality" will override everyone elses moral code in the name of political correctness.
Picture the Village People singing Y..M..C..A..
So what’s the problem? Give them their own unit and put them on the front lines. Bring back the draft for gays and lesbians.
Political correctness may very well destroy our great nation, it’s gotten a foothold that will be extremely hard to eliminate.
I like the way you think, grandma...
He appointed at least one gay Supreme Court Justice.
No kidding, we could put an end to this pro-longed controversy real quick by advocating a draft of all gays and lesbians and put them in their own units and put them in harm’s way. Problem solved.
I have done the same and I am sad that my families strong tradition of military service will come to an end because of thie act. Four of us have retired from the Military with over 105 years of total service just among the four of us. I have advised a nephew and my daughter not to join.
The gays who can be trusted are perfectly comfortable with "don't ask, don't tell". I would imagine their closest friends know, but they don't need to shove their lifestyle in the faces of casual acquaintances.
I believe you said it well and I have no doubt that’s correct.
Only one problem - they plan to re-institute the draft.
Read the official pentagon’s website. It appears clear to me that they are already prepared to implement the repeal of DADT. You can read it for yourselves without my spin.
Gates is a lying SOS. First S is “Sack.”
I predict that the minute DADT is repealed and the gays are free to be themselves in the open, there will be no curbs against hitting on straight service people. Any military person who REJECTS the advances of a gay will be deemed guilty of a HATE CRIME.
Sgt. Steve Brick: We've decided that these people work to the best of their ability in their own environment. That's why we've formed a special Gay Brigade.
I'm in the Army, and I'm gay That don't mean I swish and sway, I won't go down on anyone, Uncle Sam is the only one
I used to suggest to young adults who weren’t sure what direction they wanted to go, to look into joining the military. Today. I would NEVER tell them that.
Repealing this is a nightmare. I know I am preaching to the choir but......
Statistically the average age of those serving are in their 20’s. Gay or straight you have a very high sex drive.
When confined to an installation it is natural to form cliches, usually because of the same likes, hobbies, whatever, something in common. With Gays serving open, they will naturally gravitate to one another because of their common bond. They will become their own group, a group which will be sexually attracted to one another. Just like if you put 6 girls and 6 guys together 24/7 the sexual tensions will naturally happen.
One other point, once this is repealed the next demand will be for gay marriage. The argument will be, they can go to war and die for us and fight for our freedeoms but they can’t marry?? They will play that card in a minute!
I've not the slightest doubt you're correct. I also believe that's why the LGBT has been pushing this so hard, it's a huge inroad for them.
The number of friendly fire incidents in war zones will increase by a factor of 10.
The overall effectiveness of the various branches will suffer greatly...with the possible exception of the Air Force where close living is far less.
Example: Imagine yourself in a berthing compartment of a ship at sea...45 racks or so. Then imagine your worry that you picked the wrong rate because the majority of the senior NCOs were homo...along with 8-10 of the rest of the compartment.
After 100 days at sea or so, you're going AWOL at the first civilized port. Maybe any port.
Republicans should solicit a report that asks would it be ok if men and women were berthed together in close quarters situations where they had to share shower facilities and sleeping quarters and lets see how this is any different then allowing the gays to do it.
The psychological impact on the straight people will be a form of sexual harrasement, why do they feel they need to flgrantly display their sexuality?
As it is now with DADT at least straight people can assume that the people they are showering and sleeping with aren’t gay even if they are gay because they can’t openly state or flaunt their gayness.
Monty Python gives us a glimpse into the future
I don’t really know, but do they have separate barracks for the men and the women? Does this mean they will have to have to have a whole new configuration?
1. The MEN
2. The WOMEN
3. gay (men) who like gay (men)
4. gay (men) who think they are (women).
4. gay (women) who like gay (women)
5. gay (women) who think they are (men)
6. The UNSURE
“Drop and give me fifty. NO GODDAMMIT, I meant PUSHUPS!”
“What do you mean we’re all out of gun grease???!!!”
“We used to have the greatest military in the world. Now, you people SUCK.”
I had the feeling that something like this would happen.
Our largest security risk is in the WH.
May 24, 2010 SPECIAL REPORT from WAYNE MADSEN.
Obama and Emanuel: Members of same gay bath house in Chicago
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicagos gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
The bath house, Mans Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicagos grand old bathhouses. WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year lifetime memberships to paying customers and that the clubs computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to Mans Country believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
Members of Mans Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry.
Obama began frequenting Mans Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Mans Country after he left the Clinton White Hosue and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor.
Mans Country appears to be a one stop shopping center for gay men. The clubs website advertises steam rooms, fantasy rooms, bed rooms, male strippers, adult movies, and lockers.
Pictures at the URL site.
The report is faulty, and a lie. I have real fears in regards to what you imply and know there are enough problems with women serving with men without adding this into the mix.
Yep. They have an “Implementation Plan” all ready to go. Clear as day what their intention are. This has been carefully orchastrated from day one.
There will be homosexuals raping straights and other homos. Any bets these abuses won't be covered up by the brass?
Military readiness and efficiency will be affected by love triangles, spurned lovers and sex related violence. All you have to do is look at the way homos conduct themselves on civvy street. Any bets these problems won't be covered up by the brass?
If they approve of open homosexualism they might as well do away with the concept of male only / female only barracks. Homos don't need women and lezzies don't need men, so they will both be bunking right in the middle of their sexual targets.
Only the straights will be sleeping cold.
They were probably the smart ones who had doubts about how "anonymous" and "confidential" their responses would be if they gave other-than-PC answers.
“So, because we know the CIC does not really care about the gay lobby, and this is the only supporting action he has taken for them, then the reason must be the destruction of the greatest military on earth. Agreed?”
The only possible conclusion unless you believe he is stupid enough to think this WON’T destroy the American military. I don’t think he is very smart but I don’t think he is THAT stupid.
I should have said, “The non-responders were...”
Same sex sexual assaults have skyrocketed in recent years.
It’s already happening.
What does “Openly Homosexual” mean anyway? There was “Open Heterosexuality” at Tail Gate. They got drummed out.
homosexuals have favored status as political sex fetish lobbyist donors.
allowing homosexuals in the military is about ENDORSING their sexual fetish behavior. It is no different than requiring a soldier to be allowed to share private quarters with a sheep. (try putting that on a submarine)
