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 Washingtons 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.

“Rainbow” color guard? Sheesh!
Recruiting. There’s a quota to be filled.
I never did understand “pride” in homosexuality. It’s a choice and why choose that?
Oh that will be classy.
I feel sorry for the Old Guard members who are tasked to support this event. Guaranteed they won’t be volunteers.
> Recruiting. Theres a quota to be filled.
It’s not there quota they want filled...
They had better start spit shining their butt chaps and putting brasso to their nipple rings.
In full drag?
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.
How loud can I scream? I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE.
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.
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?
“Respectfully - no, sir, I will not perform that duty.”
I found an article where they marched, forced by 0bammy, per Sen Inhofe...but can’t find anything about the grabbing and discipline part....
Maybe you could make your locked caps bold? (No, I don’t know how to do it)
THIS IS DISGUSTING!
No, not the one. I want to say this was in Texas and it was Marines, not Navy.
OH MY STARS!!!! What next. Will our president bow to the
rainbow flags as they pass
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
This “pride” crap frosts my cookies. What the hell have they got to be proud of?
Shoving their perversion in our faces knowing they can without retribution.
< b >without space< /b >without spaces = BOLD
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.
I’m more and more understanding the Taliban’s hatred of our military.
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...
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”.
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.
soon, the soldiers will have to bow down to the gay mafia....
This is pure insanity.
Obama is destroying every thing he can, traditions, institutions and whatever else.
“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.
