Pentagon to allow service members to march in uniform in gay pride parade for first time (SICK!)

The Defense Department on Thursday announced it is allowing service members to march in uniform in a gay pride parade for the first time in U.S. history.
In a memorandum sent to all its branches, the department said it was making the allowance for San Diegos gay pride parade on Saturday even though its policy generally bars troops from marching in uniform in parades.
The Defense Department said it did so because organizers had encouraged military personnel to march in their uniform and the event was getting national attention.
The move came only weeks after the Pentagon joined the rest of the U.S. government for the first time in marking June as gay pride month and made an official salute to gay and lesbian service members.

If they want a conscript-only army, this is one way to go about it.

Uniformed soldiers in those countries have marched down the streets of Toronto and London next to scantily clad men, drag queens and civil rights activists.
I think across the country we will start seeing active-duty members in uniform march in pride parades, Sala said.
This will not help recruiting, except maybe to recruit more gays. Who would have thought we'd ever see US military uniforms in a parade where exhibitionism and lude behavior are the most prevalent characteristics?

No they want a military full of deviants and misfits who nurture a generalized grudge against the US and normal middle class Americans. The desire is to make the US military into the government's armed force. The goal is for a military led by craven careerists and power hungry thugs commanding misfits and people itching to ‘avenge’ being made feel marginalized and disrespected so if necessary the government ‘forces’ can be unleashed on say the population of Idaho or Texas for refusing to obey some federal ukase. Sort of like Noriega’s Panamanian Defense Force.
Does this mean that folks in the military can wear their uniforms with PRIDE at Tea Party gatherings now?

The destruction of all that is good about America continues apace. Sad, sad day. God damn obama.
That sure didn’t take long.
I am disgusted, to say the least.
How soon before a ‘rainbow’ patch is approved for military uniforms?

(***YOU GAVE it to Obama. I would have voted for NEWT.~Just livin' life, my way~)
God damn obama.
Romney, too, since he has made assurances he will do nothing to change it. Anyone voting for either candidate is (at least) tacitly endorsing this depravity.

What a disgrace to the uniform.
It’s so wrong and dsrespectful.

If they can't then they should yell discrimination.

Come to think of it, all hetros should start having a hetro pride day and parade and jam it back at the homos.
So if I understand the article, stating that the "Defense Department [or the Pentagon]... to allow service members", actually means that "Leon Panetta ...allows"...
Do I understand this correctly?

If Obama gets another 4 years, they will make homosexual experimentation madatory.

Barky continues his quest to demoralize and separate one of the strongest and most patriotic groups in the US. Don’t give him a victory. I’m praying for uncooperative weather.

I predicted that with the sodomization of the military, that homosexuals would be untouchable and lawless. This is just a preview of things to come.
