The American Family Association is taking the Air Force to task for inviting a drag queen group to perform at an air base earlier this month.
The U.S. Air Force recently confirmed to Fox News that it invited a well-known drag queen group known as Jewels and the Brunchettes to perform at Los Angeles Air Force Base on Diversity Day (August 8) because drag is a "symbol of gay pride and unity." The event also featured a speech by Brigadier General Tammy Smith, who became the first openly homosexual general after the repeal of the law banning gays and lesbians from military service.
Bryan Fischer is director of issues analysis at the American Family Association, which within days notified its supporters of the event.
"Its almost unfathomable that you would have a branch of the United States military invite drag queens to perform on a military installation, he tells OneNewsNow. And then that you would have a brigadier general defend that and say look this is what the military is all about; these are the values that we want to celebrate is beyond the pale."
Fischer points out that while the Air Force is apparently okay with drag queens, it continues to be hostile to Christian chaplains, officers, and enlisted personnel who publicly share their faith.
"Right now the American military, particularly the Air Force, is extremely hostile to any kind of expression of Christian faith,

In before the “Witt Romney would have never allowed that” crowd.
So how long before we get our first military members insisting on the right to cross dress in uniform? Can I demand the right to longer hair as a guy since the women are allowed it?
And what about when the Czechoslovakian womens Olympic team members, now serving in the US military, demand their right to grow beards just like military Muslims!
Back in the mid-1980s....the Air Force hired up a drag queen act for NCO Club entertainment in Germany. This was back in the days when the clubs all made profits....sold $1-a-pitcher beer...we just wanted entertainment of any variety. No one complained about the act...must have been 500 customers in the club that night. A decade later? The club’s alcohol sales were limited...harsh reality on drinking....and there was virtually no profit to allow for any entertainment.
The funny thing is that they brought the drag queen act back into modern times...but the drinking-is-ok mentality is practically dead.
Yeah and they still insist its only straight men who are raping other men...
and that 1000s of men are being raped and only a handful of women...
There’s a few reasons for people to claim rape beyond an actual rape:
It gets it on their medical record and they draw a disability for life at some percentage level
And sometimes it will get them out of the military due to “inability to cope” with their “feelers” after they report it. And many facing the harsh realities of drill sergeants, deployments, combat zones, etc., are absolutely desperate to lie in order to get out.
And with a lifelong disability rating.
I am glad you pointed this out. This sexual trauma disability scam often draws over 30% rating!
Would have loved to see Curtiss LeMay’s face if he saw today’s USAF. He’d probably swallow his cigar.
It’s called “breaking the will of the enemy”. In this case, forces are using the homosexual agenda as a means to destroy morale in the ranks of US service members, while surpressing any objections based on religious (Christian) grounds, to the point of persecution of religious objectors.
This is how the soviets, and the nazis, purged the ranks of dissenters, and now, the same purge is occuring within the US military.
I was in the USAF from 1987 to 1994. As for all the branches, it had to have contained the most liberals. I originally went in to be a jet engine mechanic, but was convinced (yeah, talk up the spy stuff to a 17-year-old) to become a linguist. I’d say half the folks I worked with would have supported the bozo in chief we have today and his current agenda. I found a bunch of my old buddies on Facebook a couple of years ago. Man, I can’t believe I used to hang out with those guys. Liberals worse than any I’ve known.
For the most part, the air force is distant from the enemy, and the huge bulk of the air force never looks an enemy in the eye. I can see the logic that, in general, one type of person would go for that type of military life, and another type of person would enter the type of service that requires closing with and engaging the enemy.
I would have nothing against the fags dressing like Klinger if they were looking for a Section 8 discharge.
As a matter of fact, I would encourage them to get the f*** out by any means possible.
I could have posted a pic of Gary Busey in drag from "Under Siege". But really.
Will the men be allowed to make fun of them? Or is that a court martial offense now? Looks like Obama's military is no longer an honorable career choice.
