Skip to comments.Marines Hit the Ground Running in Seeking Recruits at Gay Center
Posted on 09/21/2011 1:14:06 AM PDT by Lancey Howard
TULSA, Okla. Master Sgt. Anthony Henry, a top Marine recruiting trainer for the southwestern United States, pulled up to Tulsas biggest gay community center on Tuesday morning and left his Chevy where he could make a fast getaway. I have an exit strategy, he said. I know where my choke points are, Ive strategically parked my car right on the curbside, I have an out.
But as it happened, one of the strangest days in the history of the United States Marine Corps unfolded without the protests and insults that Sergeant Henry had feared. Sergeant Henry, who had been invited to set up a recruiting booth on the first day of the end of dont ask, dont tell at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center in downtown Tulsa, instead spent it in quiet conversation with a trickle of gay women who came in to ask about joining the Marines.

America is dead and gone.
I was thinking, “this is some quite sick writing”; then I looked at the source and I was like “Ahhh... of course”.
At least you don’t have to worry about the gay women in your rear.
“...Tulsas biggest gay community center...”
Was this guy there?
This is about weaken our military.
They’re looking for a few gay men?
" Private Pyle! Why is there a dildo in your footlocker?"
Betchca all those nancy boy faggots in the NYT copy room are just peeing all over themselves thinking about gay marines...
It’s an all-volunteer military. Now we’ll see who volunteers. I predict the military will fairly quickly become predominantly homosexual/lesbian.
Sad, Larry, just sad.
Fear not, the enlisted men will take care iof this “problem” in the way EM have done so in all the brances sice the beginning.
If gays really believe they will be “accepted” by straight troops they are wrong. No one can force another to accept immoral behavior.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman ..... Hell, I may even allow you to serve as a rifleman in my beloved Corps.
Be prepared for the media to FLOOD the society with stories about how AWESOME gays are in the military.
OMG! This is worse than 9/11......it truly is the END of our country.
I’m not so sure about that. What one President can do, another President can undo. PROVIDING we keep the Supreme Court.
If I was gay (which thank God I am not) and in the service, I would be very careful about letting anyone know it. November 2012 is not that far away, and if it goes as bad for the Demonrats as I think it will, things could return to pre DADT pretty damn quick.
At that time, any out servicemen or service women could find themselves O-U-T OUT on their well used butts.
Maybe the USMC sees a potential benefit to boosting testosterone levels in the Women Marines.
I’m almost glad my father (Commo Chief/Gunnery Sergeant, USMC 1943-65, WWII, Korea & early Vietnam) didn’t live to see this happen.
What I hope to see and will pray for is that our new president in 2012, overturns this stupid idiotic mind controlling order. The military wasnt broken. This seems deeper and all of this is getting out of hand because it is crazy to redesign our military. You know, I have to say, why cant men, be men too? This reminds me of how many of republican male politicians are now-so spineless/act like girly men or afraid they will offend someone if they act strong, to the point with respect-John McCain And Lindsey come to mind-some of the elected women in DC fight for their beliefs no matter what. Now, we want our great service people/the men to be more feminized as well> or change the military, perhaps to even collapse it since this president is a Marist and a social justice truther.
Hitting head on wall, why play social experiments in something which already proves to work. It is a shame/unethical to be FORCED in a military environment as to control the enforcement in making one maintain of a feeling to respect, to accept, another persons choice. Why make it an-issue-if you are equal, whats the deal? Ashamed, want to mandate feelings?? Be yourself, as long as others share tolerance, be happy. You cannot force others how to think in a free open society or control someones mind; their thoughts. Talk about taking away our own identity of thought. Hey, whatever you dont like, we, the government will enforce you to accept. More marches to a closed society. This is dangerous road.
Like this morning’s “news” story about Chaz Bono on DWTS. Never finding the show interesting, I now have less reason to watch it.
Yes but the normal guys will be the ones who will go to jail if they say or do anything to offend the abnormal ones.
I don’t think that’s the problem. Surely any man who is a marine can protect himself if need be, and the need would be highly unlikely.
That is my hope.....Lord willing we get a righteous, patriotic sold out for America man or woman!
You might be right.
The greatest danger in this is that this could increase the support in the military for Democrat politicians--and consequently American decadence--and this is probably the primary motive behind it.
Another very bad consequence of it is spreading American decadence generally in the military, which has heretofore been resistant to it.
There have always been homosexuals in the military, but they have been discrete. Now, expect homosexuality to be flaunted, and this will have a demoralizing effect on the military.
Homosexual men and women can be effective combatants, which is what the military needs. What the military does not need is American decadence and demoralization.
I cannot help but think about that line of Eastwood’s in The Enforcer, when he says at a promotion board “what do you think this is, some kind of encounter group”.
Our whole society is now a functioning encountering group...who cares if the job can be done, let’s make sure no one’s feelings are hurt by being left out. After this, the most egregious example is coed submarines. “just take a few of those missiles tubes out and put in a separate shower and dorm, no problem”.
The first sentence of the article has the irony/sarcasm of Rachel Maddow.
I don’t think my husband can take this anymore!
Last week I bought him the Marine Corps Times (with the homo declarations on the cover) with a bottle of single malt scotch to read it by.
I am afraid to send him the link to this story !!!
“I predict the military will fairly quickly become predominantly homosexual/lesbian.”
And at that point we will find out how far depraved degraded viciously angry and savagely self hateing people with power (guns) will go.
Funny. Now I’m reading another ariticle that the alphabet group, LGBQT and whatever, are setting up protests outside military facilities demanding ever more rights. Now that they have their foot in the door watch out. It’s never been about equal rights. It’s about special rights.
The Marines were once the proudest and finest fighting force on the planet. Now they will be just another sick part of our society.
You are wrong. Do you know the term “barracks justice”? If you are a military vet you would and this would not bother you to the extent it does. (others also).
I hope I am wrong but will wait & see what happens if barracks justice is implemented.
It would be like trying to put tooth paste back into a tube.
It is now. I come from an extended military family and we have several members currently serving. This nothing new, btw, it has been going on since we’ve had a military.
The EM always handle their own problems and do it in a way which seldom has to be repeated since lessons taught in this way are long remembered.
I predict Civil War II between the Red and Blue states. I also predict that the Red State Confederate Army will not be homsexualized.
It will be in your unit.
I predict ...that very few of them will actually sign up. And that very few of them will actually continue to serve.
We’ll see extrapolated stories of one or maybe even TWO marines who are serving, who appear normal, etc. ...but for the most part, things will go on as usual.
Gays never were an issue in the military — it’s our Democratic politicians who made it an issue — and who want to take the credit.
Gays ain’t gonna join up on droves ...they’re too scared to fight. Too much money in fashion and graphic design, in jouranlism, etc.
Put a fork in America. It’s over.
Still looking for male body parts on ancient photos?
You can bet the JAG offices will now become overrun with fags.
You posted them.
I wonder how our gay military will fare when facing Russians or Chinese?
My husband has been an enlisted man in the army for 21 years. Barracks justice is not tolerated and hasn’t been for a very long time.
Hubby and I have discussed this issue at length and I’ve asked him what his position will be if DADT is repealed.
The thing is, he’s a by-the-book professional. He’ll keep good order and conduct and require the same, high standards with homosexual troops that he requires from everyone else.
I think that it comes as a shock to new recruits that their senior NCO’s are as involved in their personal lives as they are. In the civilian world, your boss doesn’t care if you got a ticket or got into a bar fight last weekend. In the military, holding yourself to a high standard is expected all of the time. Here at Ft Hood, senior NCO’s go out with the cops on bar patrol every Friday night. My husband has gone on a couple of these runs. They hit all the strip clubs and bars and let their presence be known. Soldiers stick out like a sore thumb and the NCO’s approach them and remind them that they are soldiers every minute of the day.
The military is not a party and homosexuals are going to have all of the same restrictions that everyone else has.
I wonder how they’re going to deal with gay marriage, partner benefits, TriCare payouts, etc. Y’all know that’s coming.
As far as I know, sodomy (even between husband and wife) is still illegal according to the UCMJ. They’re going to have to change that if they’re allowing homosexuals to serve openly. As of right now, that’s a serious conflict between policy and law.
You are wrong. Do you know the term barracks justice? If you are a military vet you would and this would not bother you to the extent it does. (others also).
Sorry for the long ramble. Topic just hit a nerve.
I was really struck by his comment because he generally never comments about current affairs and because he's always been proud of his service in the Marines. Last night, I saw that this truly hurt him. The freaks are destroying this Nation.
