Posted on 02/25/2011 6:43:42 PM PST by Rabin

The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program…

Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill, said Thursday... "American combat troops will get (extensive) sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the military’s new policy on gays…" The sessions on "respecting" gays will go right down to the forward operating bases, where troops fight Taliban militants.

Who is the real enemy here? Is it the Taliban and Al Qaeda or is it the straight soldier?

With all the indoctrination that the young get in school today about how the “alternate lifestyle” is ok. I’m wondering the same thing ... but from a different angle.

So, let's cut to the chase and sum up this "Training" and indoctrination:

Respect Gays = Affirm the gay lifestyle

Celebrate Diversity = CELEBRATE PERVERSITY

One thing the straight combat trooper can take comfort in will be the fact that there will frequently be a gay fellow ready to leap on his back to shield him from harm.(Even if they are just stateside in the barracks).

In the immediate moment, the troops should simply check out mentally during the lecture, ignore the propaganda and then proceed. Either that or get a good Pro Bono religious rights attorney to represent them and then demonstrate that their freedom of religion and rights are being trampled upon by an immoral agenda.

Then there's conscientious objection:

“...Service in the U. S. Marine Corps requires the loss of many liberties that civilians enjoy; especially, the right of association. Individual Marines cannot choose their leaders or with whom they will work and live. It is beyond governmental authority to force these Americans into situations that compromise their morals. The Selective Training & Service Act of 1940 permits the granting of Conscientious Objector status to “One who by reason of religious training and belief is conscientiously opposed to participation in war.” Little known is: People v. Stewart, 7 Cal. 143, “Conscientious Scruple. A conscientious scruple against . . . doing military duty, or the like is an objection or repugnance growing out of the fact that the person believes the thing demanded of him is morally wrong, his conscience being the sole guide to his decision . . . ” (Black's Law Dictionary). This “Conscientious Scruple” provision appears to give Marines of conscience a legal remedy for a morally compromising situation...”

Even with the crap economy, I suspect alot of guys on their first tour will fail to see the incentive to reup for another round of homosexual indoctrination. The ones that have 3 to 5 years left until retirement are in the toughest spot. They will likely stick it out no matter what. I suspect 5 to 7 years from now we will be discussing bringing back the draft because volunteer recruitment numbers aren’t cutting it.

With all due “respect” to the Sgt Major the Army can not force soldiers to “respect” anything much less fellow soldiers who engage in acts that they find nauseating.

First class scenario:
Instructor: You are the leader of a four man fire team which contains one gay soldier. You are attacked and one of the enemy makes it through the wire and is close to your position. You yell out: “Shoot the C-—S-——! The gay soldier is shot.
Instructor Question to Class: “What is your next move?”

I see none of the flag ranked officers have the guts to denounce homosexuality as criminal behavior. Nor does the Sec of Defense have any sense of virtue to discriminate homosexual behavior from normal behavior.

When the leadership of the nation lacks virtue, they will not prevail in combat to defend the nation.

They are incompetent as leaders of men and lack virtue to even condone moral behavior.

I guess the good news is that their enemies do not tolerate homosexuality and the most direct path between their enemies and those amoral leaders who have seized control of American leadership is not through the American military overseas, but by infiltrating into US society and striking from within our country. Their only opposition is an incompetent department of Homeland Security which sees no threat from either Mexico or illegal immigration.

As a nation, though, our defense appears to be retreating to our common ability to bare arms in defense of ourselves, for our leadership and governmental bodies lack the ability to discern from criminal and ethical behavior.

In case anyone wants to join me...I’m starting my OWN Army!!

As a Vet of 20 years, this just annoys me to no end. Of course there were/are gay guys and gals in the military - they were there 20 years ago!

But, for Pete’s Sake! All of these ‘special rights’ for mentally ill people? And the vst majority has to cow-tow to this tiny percentage of freaks? Come on!

I know. I’m really, really MEAN, LOL!

The enemy is the Christian patriot. They want to eliminate the Christian paradigm that has been the prevailing one since its inception.....because it produces morality and honor and they will not turn on their civilians.

They want a pagan/atheist military (like the Russians) so they can be trusted to round up citizens. Homosexuals have no character or morality based on natural law which is logical....they use no logic.......the act removes morality from acts which is what Marxists want to reinforce. Good becomes what the state wants....or sub in the word for state: Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Pot, etc. They become God...no Christianity and the state becomes god—that is why they are trying to destroy Chriatianity...and get it out of everything. They will not kill fellow citizens.

Yes, it's 0h0m0llah who's in a "virtual" closet. He is reinforcing the stud squad in the Bathhouse, aka the WH. The 0b0z0s just hired a faggot to be their "social director."

In 0h0m0llah's divine opinion, the whole country needs sensitivity training because the lunatics are running the asylum.

-------------------------------

Obama's plan for America's defeat... let gays and their lawyers destroy the US military.

On Dec 10, 2010, Obama revealed in his DADT bill-signing remarks what was foremost in his mind during his very first meeting with his generals: not defeating America's enemies at a time of war but liberalizing the military. "Ending 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' was a topic in my first meeting with Secretary Gates, Admiral Mullen, and the Joint Chiefs. We talked about how to end this policy. We talked about how success in both passing and implementing this change depended on working closely with the Pentagon. And that's what we did," he said.

I say we impeach this jackass.

It might fail as in BJ Clinton's second term impeachment but it's one thing America needs to set it straight again.

There is lots of stuff that will piss you off about a republic. The hardest part I guess, is that your enemy is just most often just you, pointing 180 off X.

Shoot its not commies, niggers, spics, yids, mics,,,. My dad (lutenant JG) and Armando Corallis, chased down and terminated a problem in Scottsdale, in the summer of 1944. The Marshal (Herly Pruit) opened no file.

We are the Americans.
