Military color guard to march in gay pride parade
Washington Times ^ | 6/6/2014

Posted on 06/07/2014 5:34:01 AM PDT by Altura Ct.

For the first time, a U.S. military color guard is expected to march alongside rainbow flags in Washington’s gay pride parade.

The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/1j2L9Mg ) reports an eight-member color guard team from the U.S. Army Military District of Washington is scheduled to lead off the parade Saturday. The Department of Defense authorized the participation.

Organizers and military gay rights groups say this is a first nationwide for a gay pride parade. The color guard will present the American flag and flags of each military branch.

Capital Pride organizers requested color guards in the past but were rejected.

I never did understand “pride” in homosexuality. It’s a choice and why choose that?

I feel sorry for the Old Guard members who are tasked to support this event. Guaranteed they won’t be volunteers.

They had better start spit shining their butt chaps and putting brasso to their nipple rings.

Several years ago somebody made some Marines march in a gay pride parade. A couple of parade-goers tried to do some crotch grabbing with predictable results. It was out of the news so fast it smoked. But as I recall the Marines were to be “disciplined.” Anybody know the details? I wish now I’d copied the article.

The point of today’s military is to promote causes dear to the heart of the left, most of them related to sexuality and certainly not including the defense of the country. Why any conservative would sign up for this is beyond me.

“First to fight for right and freedom and to keep our honor clean”. From the first verse of the Marines Hymn

Can it mean anything after being debased by sodomites?

For years I would tell Marines this would happen. They thought I was crazy since No One could imagine a Marine Flag at the head of a parade honoring a bunch of sodomites.

We must Take our county back.

Take the country back... start out getting a group of friends to attend these parades... maybe 4 busloads of them. each person gets a sack of rotten tomatoes... you can take it from there.

Even if a military lawyer could argue that the order to march in this parade was a lawful order, I would still prefer to see decent men from the color guard avoid this disgrace. Those without the guts to face a court martial should call in sick rather than obey this disgusting order. If necessary, they should get sick - drink ipecac, look at a picture of Helen Thomas, or whatever it takes. Good people do not disgrace the uniform.

The United States Armed Forces can't be "proud" of this association - so what are they afraid of that they would do this?

It boggles my mind.

Why in heaven’s name is our military marching to celebrate a proclivity to a particular sexual sin? Will they march in the adultery pride parade next? How about the fornication parade? the bigamy parade? the incest parade? the pedophilia parade? the bestiality parade? Since according to our betters in the white house, it shouldn’t matter who you love, why isn’t the military and the government not just permitting, but celebrating all of these sins?

surely if the obamas and bidens are not all there for this hysteric occasion, upchuck Hagel and the Joint Chiefs will be, to salute the rainbow flag with hand over heart

No doubt this occasion will produce images that make American hearts swell with pride at the US military

Not to mention impressing the Chinese, the Russians, the Iranians and the Norks

Make my locked caps bold? I don’t even know what that means. I barely know how to turn this thing on.
By the way my name is Christian.

This is disgusting.

Would a color guard be provided for a procession for the Lady of Fatima?

Here is a link to the disgusting WaPoo article linked in the article you posted...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/us-armed-forces-color-guard-to-march-in-gay-pride-parade-in-dc-called-a-first-nationwide/2014/06/05/32955202-ec26-11e3-b98c-72cef4a00499_story.html

The comments following this article are disappointingly clueless. Political correctness will ruin us. Soldiers follow orders. They may not like the duty assigned but they none the less do the assigned duty to the best of their ability. Having served in The Old Guard 50 years ago, this news hits me like a massive BARF ALERT. Last October during the “government shutdown”, I attended the annual reunion of The Old Guard Association (TOGA). Most of the events planned for the 50th year since many of us participated in President J. F. Kennedy’s State Funeral were cancelled. As a result I had the opportunity to meet some soldiers in my former company and was not surprised to see that most of them wear CIBs. These are not toy soldiers; they are seasoned warriors who consider it a great honor to serve in the oldest active US military unit with 52 battle streamers on the 3d Infantry Regiment colors.

Here’s a link to the 11 page application for admission to TOG. Note on page 1 that “deployed within the last 36 months is preferred”.

http://www.oldguard.mdw.army.mil/docs/recruiting/recruitpacket.pdf?sfvrsn=4

I do not wish to draw any more attention to this debacle than necessary so I’m just adding my comments for the record.

That is what the Commanding General of the MDW needs to say, not Pfc Joe Blow.

“This is pure insanity.”

“Obama is destroying every thing he can, traditions, institutions and whatever else.”

It is the insane plan of the anti-Americans, and they are ahead of schedule, I’m sure.
