Sen. Inhofe: Obama Forced Military to allow uniformed troops in Gay Pride Parade.
Daily Caller ^ | 7/26/12 | Melissa Quinn

Posted on 07/26/2012 8:56:54 AM PDT by cblue55

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe told The Daily Caller he believes President Barack Obama pressured the military into granting an unprecedented exception to rules that prohibit participation in political activities while in uniform.

The Defense Department authorized a waiver to allow uniformed service members to march in last weekend’s San Diego gay pride parade, overriding a Defense Department directive‘s specific rules against uniformed service members’ participation in political events.

There's no end to the pandering of this president - anything to get elected. This story did not receive enough coverage.

...this the same military who discharged a Marine for setting up a Facebook page that supports the Tea Party?

If I were al Queda, I’d be laughing too.

Now why don’t you go pay your taxes? Lazy Government workers need raises. :)

One problem: he’s pandering to a very obvious minority. Obama’s handlers aren’t stupid, and this isn’t being done by accident.

I believe Obama’s getting more brazen on purpose. He’s a clinical narcissist, and he’s not going to give up power. I think he’s going to do every radical thing he can before the election to piss of the electorate and then call martial law over something like a white man protecting himself and his family from a mob of rioting blacks.

Obama’s sitting on a powder keg playing with matches. He knows exactly what he’s doing.

Obama wants to have queers running wild all over the place and pretend it is normal so he doesn't stand out so much.

Since when is a "gay pride" parade a political event? I always figured it was just a chance for the queers and lezbos to publicly display their outrageous behavior, disgust and turn off a bunch of spectators and beg for God's intervention.

it is expected that our first line troops put their lives on the line for this country and now even to support those whom we know want to kill all Americans. The problem is that the commanders in all of the branches of the US military do not have the balls to stand up, say enough is enough and start maintaining the historical integrity and true purpose of our military. It appears that an orchestrated effort is taking place so the US economy and the US military will collapse in one fell swoop and it is all coming from the obozo and his masters.

It starts with Congress as well. Congress actually sets and creates the rules of the military, not the President. We have weak sacks of @hit in congress.

Obama “forced” or “pressured”? Any complaints?

Love the comments following the article. A lot of people are ticked!

Makes me sick to my stomach what Obama has done to our military.

Some time back I saw a video that called "Obama's Army" (I think) it was similar to the below video, only funnier and in english. The gay service men were dancing their drills and at the end gave kisses.

Obama's Army

If anyone knows where to find that video I would appreciate it.

Obama don’t need no stinkin’ rules!

“The Department of Defense isn’t allowing this to go on, it’s the president,” Inhofe said in an interview with TheDC. “The secretary of defense answers to the president, and the military answers to the commander in chief. Clearly this is Barack Obama.”

Obviously Sen. Inhofe hasn't read the Constitution.

Would you like to elaborate on your comment in post 15?

Not sure what you are trying to say.

Congress sets and creates the rules of the military, the CIC carries out set rules. The President can't 'create' regulations. Congress did wrong by allowing gays in the military, and if Congress wants to ban gays from wearing uniforms in gay parades, they can.

Inhofe his hiding behind the CIC for cover and excuses. He and the rest of Congress could lay down the law, but they aren't.

Did’nt they go after some soldier that spoke in favor of Ron Paul in the Iowa Primary. Justice becomes politically subjective under tyranny.

Congress has already set rules preventing military uniforms in such assemblies.

As a chaplain, I am certain chaplains cannot be in uniform in a pro-life parade.

Remember General Boykin and the trouble he had over wearing his uniform while talking to churches and other similar groups.

The general rule says no military uniform in partisan assemblies.

There is hardly any doubt that a gay pride parade is a partisan and an “in your face” to those who don’t believe like them.

So, it really wasn’t at the discretion of the the Cdr in Chief.

In fact, members aren’t really supposed to be in uniform at NON-PARTISAN activities.

Probably.

They went after soldiers who are critical of Obama and Clinton, but heap praise on soldiers who criticized Bush.

Welcome to LiberalLand. :)

Look, let’s just call it what it is.

His “sudden” support for gay marriage, allowing openly gay people to serve in the military, ordering that they be allowed to wear uniforms at a gay parade, etc....is all just one, big, honkin’, F**K YOU to Christian America.

Trust me.

Just damn!

First time since 1776.

Actually Obummer may have made a Freudian slip in his book-

viz

blow up the photo of Obummer and roommate Sohale Siddiqi, in the fall of 1981 on

http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/01/20/recollections-of-obamas-ex-roommate/?hp

and they are holding hands on Sadiki`s knee [I count 8 fingers]-

and then compare Obummer`s statement about Sohale:

Sohale Siddiqi is identified as "Sadik" in Obama's memoir, Dreams From My Father, and is described as "a short, well-built Pakistani"

http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/List_of_Barack_Obama's_friends_and_associates

Sadiki is skinny with no muscles-

- evidently Obummer, in a homosexual slip, was referring to Sadiki`s Big Muscle, his well-built homo part?

Obummer liked Sadiki`s big muscle?

Otherwise, Obummer`s statement about Sadiki makes no sense whatsoever.

A slip?
