Sometimes the only thing you can do is laugh. Since federal judge Virginia Phillips is signaling that she has no intention of staying her injunction on the enforcement of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the policy, at least for a few more days, remains unenforceable. Despite the way DADT repeal has been screwed up at every step, it does appear that the policy will be history before too terribly long.
So let’s see what this wingnut at the AFA’s “news” source OneNewsNow is saying about DADT repeal. Oh, he thinks it’s going to lead to a “homosexual-run military.” Too funny:
Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), does not think the president cares about how unjust and discriminatory it will be for heterosexual service members when the military is taken over by radical homosexuals.
Don’t tell them about the secret amendment to Phillips’ ruling that makes Adam Lambert the commandant for life of a new military branch, intended to eventually replace the Marine Corps. That’s supposed to be a surprise.
“If you try to have a sergeant drilling
Two seconds in and this Richard Thompson dude is getting all homoerotic. It’s a family website!
and overseeing a bunch of young men, and that sergeant happens to be homosexual, you can just imagine what kind of coercion there is going to be,” he warns.
Uh. What? Is Richard Thompson aware that sergeants follow certain standards and practices, regardless of who they go home to at night? Anyway, file this comment under Richard Thompson Scared About Buttsex.
“If this ever happens, you’re going to see a lot of violence; you’re going to see a lot of young men leaving the military, and you’re going to have unintended consequences that can only be imagined today.”
I suppose it can only be imagined, because his fears are imaginary. Note, of course, that there are already lots of gays in all positions of the military hierarchy, and many of them are already open about their sexuality. And of course, every other mature nation in the world has gays openly serving, and none of them have these problems. What is it about American wingnut men that they assume that they’re some sort of prize for gay troops? Why would they possibly think gays are looking at them?! Seriously! Wingnuts aren’t sexy!
Anyway, going off on a tangent here.
Let’s look at the comments section, because that’s always the funniest part of OneNewsNow:
With homosexuals it is all about the orgasm and perverting society to buy acceptance from others when possible and force it when they deem necessary.
Haha, I can’t even do this. That’s a real comment, left by a purportedly real human wingnut. So is this:
Destroying the best most effective military in the world IS the objective of godless liberals. I am encouraging all my young family members to now avoid military service.
Man, they’re funny.
