Memo Marks Official End to 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' (sigh...)
National Journal ^ | September 20, 2011

Posted on 09/20/2011 5:58:21 AM PDT by markomalley

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the nearly 18-year-old policy that allowed gays to serve in the military as long as they kept their sexual orientation a secret, was officially repealed at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20.

The following official Defense Department memo acknowledges the historic repeal. "Effective today," it reads, "statements about sexual orientation or lawful acts of homosexual conduct will not be considered as a bar to military service."



TOPICS: Culture/Society; Extended News; Government
KEYWORDS: bho44; bhodod; communism; deathofthemilitary; dontaskdonttell; homonaziagenda; homonazism; homopsychoagenda; homosexualagenda; homosexualism; homotyranny; marxism; obamalegacy; sodomy
Sigh. Another sign of the decline and fall of the US.

DADT was the liberal compromise.

This is the leftist “screw you”.

All we asked was they don’t make their faggotry public. Why do they have to make their faggotry public?

lawful acts of homosexual conduct will not be considered as a bar to military service.

What if those "lawful acts" are illegal in the country in which you are serving?

I don't believe they are legal in Afghanistan or Iraq or Kuwait. Does this mean that homosexuals get a pass when it comes to deployment in these regions?

And what about sex with minors in those countries where the legal age of consent in 12 or 13. Does this mean that American Servicemen can engage in what is considered statutory rape or child molestation in the United States as long as they do it where it is legal?

This is the beginning of the end of our military and our Country.

Does anyone know what percentage of the military is actually LGBT (or whatever they’re calling themselves)?

A truly conservative house and a truly conservative senate majority of 61 and a truly conservative president could turn this around.

Immediately.

The health issues alone are reason enough for any sane legislative body to turn this around. You add great reasons as well. Status of Forces agreements in host nations cannot be ignored. Nor can US law.

But a revolution in public voting is what’s needed.

And that awaits a takeover of the media by conservatives. How to accomplish that? The same way it was originally done. Subterfuge about one’s true positions until they achieve a position of power.

It won't be long before being in the military is synonymous with being gay. At that point there will have to be a draft because no one wants to be labeled queer unless they really are.

Whatever it is, it will now be more as homo-activist with nothing better to do pour in to recruiting offices to flaunt their perversion in America's face. And many of the ones who are already in will start screaming "look at me!!!!"

Like Obamacare, this must not be allowed to stand.

It endangers the republic itself for it has our government directly choosing political concerns over battlefield effectiveness.

The military’s purpose is to win the nation’s wars. Period.

Anything that injures battlefield effectiveness threatens the survival of the republic.

Yes, and within 8 hours it was already being celebrated on some mainstream media outlets. It took them less than 8 hours to proclaim that “all was well”.

We can only hope we get leaders elected that can turn this garbage around. The "gays" will show preference for other gays and it won't be long before "who do you have b__w to get promoted?" will be a reality.

Homosexuality is a mental illness and has no place at all in an effective - and critical - military service.

I saw one liberal blogger posting at 12:05, gloating that the "repeal" had already been in effect for FIVE MINUTES with no ill effects. Breathtaking mindlessness.

As unbelievable as this sounds, this "repeal" is only an inception for the sodomite nihilists. It is their proverbial foot-in-the-door to make further, more outrageous demands on the military, the nation, you and me. The media spins this as a done deal only as camouflage for their ultimate goal.

The sodomites are enraged that their "marriages" won't be recognized by the armed forces for purposed of benefits. This is the next obstruction that they will zero in on with all of their resources. Expect, within 1 month, for lawsuits to pile ceiling high against this. And expect the Ø administration to cave to it.

The military code also faces an extensive re-write because of this travesty. While they're at it, expect many more politically correct changes to be inserted freely at the will of liberals.

I think the percentage of gays in the military currently is quite small. There have always been some. I have talked to guys who served in WW II and Korea who figured out that this guy or that in their platoon was gay. So long as they kept their noses clean and did not cause any trouble nobody seemed to have a real problem with them.

This is not about allowing such people to serve. This is being driven by the Gay Mafia with a revenge motive, along with radical Globalist Pacifists who want to undermine the US Military.

As we learned from the kid who handed over all the files to Wikileaks, most gays are quite unhappy trying to live in the military culture.

Well, hell, I’m getting kinda cynical about it all anyway, so here goes, and let the flames roar in my direction if they must.

Our military hasn’t been involved in a declared war since WWII, not has it secured a single unconditional surrender or victory of any meaningful kind.

Our military does not protect us from the invading armies to the south.

Our military is not being allowed to defeat Islam, nor hardly make a dent in them.

Our most powerful weapons are forbidden from the battlefield, and are being systematically and unilaterally disarmed.

Our military seems to have little other purpose than to serve the globalists and the military-industrial profiteers, provide policing and nation building to the Third World and redistributing the wealth and blood of our citizens around the globe.

Our military, at enormous expense, is posted in about a hundred foreign countries whose people have, at best, mixed feelings about it, and whose ungrateful governments don’t pay us a bloody cent for the benefits and protection we bring to them.

Our military has allowed itself to be be emasculated by the policies of their non-military controllers.

Our military is involved in two (three?) “wars” within the context of a larger “War on Terror,” in which we are pitted against a fanatical 25% of the world’s population hell-bent on our subjugation, yet our approach is timid, not focused on truly defeating the enemy, and not backed-up by any war-time mobilization, nor even any interest, of the civilian sector.

Our military is being trained and organized for use against “enemies, domestic” - which is likely, in the next few years, to include almost every patriot reading this post - as the orchestrated collapse of the country is followed by martial law imposed by globalist tyrants.

Let it all turn gay. Let the military transform until it consists solely of three transgendered people on minimum wage sitting in pink uniforms in an outpost in Amsterdam smoking hashish and opium: but not until we first use some of our remaining nukes to create a glass parking lot in a wide swath from Tripoli to Islamabad, build a wall using deadly force along the entire southern border manned with state militias swollen with volunteers from around the country, and try for treason all the Marxist globalist infiltrators in our government and private institutions responsible for this decline.

Let's start with something simple like living arrangements. Are they going to force straight guys to bunk with gay guys? If so, then why not let straight guys and girls live in the same barracks room? If not, then they will create three sets of barracks; one for gays, one for straight guys and one for straight women.

And that's just for starters.
