Study: One year later, no overall negative impact on military after repeal of DADT
CNN ^ | Sep 12 2012 | Chris Boyette

Posted on 09/12/2012 9:51:08 AM PDT by scottjewell

...[T]he first academic study of the effects of repealing “don’t ask don’t tell” has found the repeal has had “no overall negative impact on military readiness or its component dimensions, including cohesion, recruitment, retention, assaults, harassment or morale.”

[Member of Airforce reads gay Military magazine]

The study was published Monday by the Palm Center, a research branch of the Williams Institute at University of California Los Angeles Law School, which describes itself as “dedicated to conducting rigorous, independent research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy.”

Even if the study is sound: 1. One still does not know what a study conducted 10 years in the future may find and

2. There is still a pervasive impact on the general national culture which may have its own ripple effects for years to come.

Whenever the results of a study are guaranteed before the study is even commissioned that study cannot be sound.

This government/media complex propagandizes the American people no less than did the soviets or the chicoms in their heyday.

Right: First of all, it is really too soon to tell how matters really now stand. Second, it is a truism that researchers create and conduct studies in such a manner as to get the results they are looking for.

In the ‘80s, there were many studies - now debunked - which showed divorce had no negative impact on kids. This will wind up the same, I am certain.

I heard that homosexual rapes in the military are skyrocketing.

I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

It's simply amazing how the leftists use a modus operandi, and just repeat its application as needed. So alinsky-like!

Push-studies such as this use the same principles as push-polling. They both are designed to accomplish an end, regardless of the means.

The other night my wife was watching some show called “Military Wives” or something like that. Anyway, there was a scene in which the troops were deploying to Afghanistan. All teh husbands and wives were kissing their spouses. Fine. Then there was a scene where a female Lt Col laid a long, passionate lip-lock on her “partner.” Yep - Hollywood and the liberal news media are pushing the narrative trying to normalize this crap.

“The Williams Institute was founded in 2001 through a generous grant by businessman, academic, and philanthropist Charles R. “Chuck” Williams. Mr. Williams’ inaugural donation of $2.5 million to create the Williams Institute was the largest donation ever given to any academic institution in support of a gay and lesbian academic program in any discipline. Over the past decade, he has given over $13 million to fund the Institute.”

I wonder why CNN did not publish a disclosure that the faux “study” is by a LGBT support institute.

Yes, very illuminating. The LGBTs went crazy over the fact that the Regnerus study may have had some connection to National Organization for Marriage, but when the shoe is on the other foot, its all cool.

"It is never a good idea for the military to allow bone smoking butt pirates to prance around in the open. Do you want a CO that is rump ranger? Part of leadership is respect."

Exactly.  How are you gonna respect a commander going into battle when it's common knowledge that commander roots around on the genitals of other men with his mouth.  It's all a sham.  They want no one to recognize a difference between heterosexual and homosexual.  As if homosexuality is simply a matter of lifestyle choice, and not a matter of shame and revulsion.

Over time we're going to have a military filled with those that have a grudge against America.

When "our" troops are told to turn their guns against the citizens of the US, they will be only too happy to do so.

(s) obviously this study is true since the military as social engineering protected the ambassador so well.(/s)

I wonder how much “napolitano-ing” has happened in the diplomatic corps?

Romney wanted to end DADT.

“One issue I want to clarify concerns President Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t pursue” military policy. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nation’s military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share.”

Sincerely,
W. Mitt Romney

They have gone up but that was still under DADT. We will have to wait for the new reports early next year.

Seems like the rump rangers rely on ambush tactics and numbers to get their victims. They get them in the showers.

The attackers are rarely caught.
