VA Fast-Tracks Sex Change for Manning While Vets Die on Waiting Lists (Sickening)
breitbart ^ | 5/16/14 | t rose

Posted on 05/17/2014 8:32:00 AM PDT by bestintxas

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has formally approved the request of Pvt. Bradley Manning, convicted for leaking classified documents to Wikileaks, to be temporarily transferred out of military custody in order to undergo expensive hormone therapy and surgery to become a woman.

Manning, whose taxpayer-funded request to change his name from Bradley to Chelsea was approved last month by a Kansas court, has been able to obtain repeated diagnoses from military doctors that he suffers from “gender dysphobia”; a condition of someone ‘discontented’ with the sex they were ‘assigned with’ at birth. It was first listed as a medical condition in 2007 by the authoritative Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Two Pentagon officials quoted by WUSA-TV, the CBS News affiliate in Washington, D.C., claim the transfer orders were submitted because neither the Defense nor Veterans Department authorize such medical services, while the US Bureau of Prisons does. Pentagon Spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby denies the claim, saying no decision has been made to transfer Manning to a civilian facility.

As the medical needs of Manning, convicted in 2013 and sentenced to 35 years in prison for stealing 750,000 classified defense department documents in order to disseminate them to Wikileaks, were being assiduously attended to by America’s defense establishment, untold hundreds of American servicemen and women suffering from genuine life-threatening and acute medical conditions have allegedly been left to die on at least seven waiting lists managed by the US Veterans Administration.

I believe this is treason.

Anyone who approved of this should be tried and thrown in jail at minimum.

Darn! I didn’t even know my sex was assigned when I was born. I never even knew I had a choice in the matter!

PATHETIC!

Apparently, if a vet wants quick treatment he needs to be convicted of a crime. This truly makes me sick to my stomach.

And this should be on Rush, Hannity and every other media outlet where the meme is, “a traitor is getting fast tracked after being approved by the VA for a sex change while our heroes are put on waiting lists and left to die. BECAUSE OF OBAMA!”

Make him defend it. This is the travesty. This should be Ed Henry’s first question to Carney on Monday. And he shouldnt let up. Someone authorized this. Who? Hagel? He needs to resign today.

The word is gender "dysphoria", not "dysphobia".

Doesn't make it any less sickening.

All appropriations of government funds are initiated in the House of Representatives. Hagel, Obama, and the rest cannot spend a dime without the House approving. The Republican Party, under the leadership of Speaker John Boehner currently controls the House. Every penny of government spending since January 2011 has been approved by the Republican House.

Government can do nothing without money. Shut off or reallocate the funding and the function stops. Anyone who has a problem with government today should take it up with Speaker Boehner and his colleagues.

Well, the book “The Man Who Would Be Queen” pretty much proved that transgenders aren’t actually confused about their gender, rather that they’re turned on by assuming the role of the other gender.

The book, even though it was a very well researched one, was of course excoriated by the transgender community, who believe they are the next civil rights movement.

So, we have a scandal building concerning treatment delays in the VA hospitals. Falsified records showing prompt treatment when vets are languishing untreated and Hagel approves this??

Sex change not only gets approved but fast tracked?? Are face lifts going to be covered in prison now?

Someone(s), Hagel to start , needs to be held accountable for this abomination.

Our first homosexual President of the United States promised “change” and this must be one of the changes he promised.

Someone should explain why this convicted traitor gets fast tracked to have a sex change operation.

What’s the point? So he can live his life in prison as a female? We have to bend over backwards to accomodate the “LGBT” agenda, which calls for sex change operations to be covered by all medical insurance, no discrimination against trans-whatever peoples, etc.

So we have to prove how liberal we are, by giving a traitor a sex change????? This is shocking on many levels.

Confuse Ye not treason with perversion and stupidity(with more than a bit of greed added in).

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders does recognize(??) “gender dysphobia” as “a condition of someone ‘discontented’ with the sex they were ‘assigned with’ at birth.”

Typical of the perverted academented, ‘birth assignment’ is confused with ‘assignment during the meiotic dance’.

Only the profoundly perverse would project such significance to a passage through any bodily cavity.

For those unfamiliar with the academented, wait until you realize the significance the academented/perverse place upon events which can be made to occur in the lower gastrointestinal tract.

Yuck!

If this is logical, then, I could get put in prison, ask, no, demand a face lift, and the authorities would have to comply with my wishes?

What is Hagel and the VA thinking?

While I’m not happy about it getting ‘fast tracked’ I’m OK with having his balls & penis being surgically removed.

I would let him get his sex change. A month before he is to be released from prison.

Has anyone asked WHY THE HELL DO WE HAVE A VA?

Yes, I am shouting.

Replace the damn thing with a board of diagnosticians.

PTSD? $10k. Amputated leg? 50k.

Then let the vet spend the money himself for treatment, and allow him to keep a portion of the remainder, giving him an incentive to obtain cost-effective treatment.

Government-provided healthcare doesn’t work anywhere in the world. America is no exception. It hasn’t worked. It will NEVER work.
