Obama 'proud' of repealing gay ban
Politico44 ^ | 09/20/11 | MATT NEGRIN

Posted on 09/20/2011 8:30:21 AM PDT by ColdOne

In a statement on the day that “don’t ask, don’t tell” ends, President Obama briefly relives the moment in which he signed the bill to reverse the military’s ban on gays, saying he was “proud” to end it.

He also adds a sentence for gay service members who were kicked out of the military before the policy ended: “I want those who were discharged under this law to know that your country deeply values your service.”

Here’s Obama’s full statement:

Does this mean that Obozo will now be coming out of the closet?

Well of course he is. Moral rules and expectations of conduct? Conservative. Smash them! Mission accomplished for the leftist revolutionary.

“Proud.”

Of course he is. After all, he killed two birds with one stone:

1) Further mainstreaming perversion.

2) Weakening the magnificent US military at its very core.

The repeal made Zero eligible to be commander and chief.

Maybe he should march in the next Gay Parade? He can dye his hair pink, paint his face with rainbows, wear a large multi-colored, feathered headdress and a loincloth.

He might even be able to perform (ahem) with “The Village People”.

This complete jackass is most comfortable around homosexuals and various other varieties of pervert along with flies, vermin, cockroaches, virtually anything that decent people find offensive.

The Central Socialist Government is ripe for a revolution, but it won’t be a pretty sight when all these roaches are rounded up.

Psalm 12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Today is the day God lifts His hand of protection from our military. He cannot wink at this sin. It is the same rebellion as was long ago and their judgement is written down for all to see. Obama has brought the same on our beloved country. God have mercy.

Run the video from the San Francisco park last spring of the homosexuals mocking Christ's crucifixion at Easter. That is a community to be proud of. The one competitor that claimed he was Jesus F’ing Christ was especially funny.

2 Timothy 3

 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

 6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

Not to worry...over time this decision will prove to be a poor one and eventually being openly homosexual in the military will be banned yet again!

The local extremely gay-friendly fake news tv stations in Miami ran a story by Ainsley Earhardt from FOX. She had some.ex-Air Force officer who got booted...saying he was going to re-enlist. He also said he was going to INSIST that gays be MADE MILITARY LEADERS. Gays MUST be given leadership posts, he said, to disprove the notion they are not good soldiers.

Not once was there any interview of current soldiers, or any opposing point of view.

Fair and balanced.

Is there any chance this will be repealed, or is it the “Pandora’s Box” effect?

This issue is one of the reasons I decided to make phone calls for a election campaign for the first time in my life.

I knew McCain/Palin wouldn't sell out our military.

There are three areas that are important to normal, decent Americans- the family, the military, and their churches. All three are under the most enthusiastic attacks. The family structure of whole segments of our society are in ruins and our kids too dubbed down to fight against it; churches will be sued into extinction if the same-sex marry laws succeed; and now, our military has taken a blow that may well be fatal.

Nice work Obama, you stupid, stupid man.

Having just read the implementing directives again this morning, I noticed that the language used is that there will be no preferences given nor harassment, etc., tolerated “due to sexual orientation”. That cuts both ways, and I fully expect there will be a lot of “they’re messing with me because I’m NOT gay” complaints. The other thing I noted was that sexual orientation will NOT be treated like race, religion, ethnicity, etc. for purposes of filing MEO (military equal opportunity) complaints. Teeny weeny glimmers of hope, but we’ll see...

Colonel, USAFR

Thanks for the front line report. FWIW, I remember reading the text of the law and it specifically noted DOMA would STILL apply....and then of course a few months later Hussein said he would NOT enforce DOMA.

I just do not trust this regime at all.

Perhaps the use of the word “funny” was actually intended to mean “ironic”?

There really wasn’t a big problem with DODT, even though I thought it was a bad idea when it was implemented. Shutting one’s mouth ought not be punished...but this openly serving stuff is asking for trouble.

When I was in the AF during the mid to late 70’s, there were two separate occasions that a homosexual made advances on me. I politely declined, and promptly found somewhere else to be. I believe, now with the elimination of DADT, these incidents will greatly increase. However, I envision that there will be a different type of reaction by those who are hit upon compared to my own. Especially if incidents like this occur in a battle zone.
