The military's new protected class

Well, finally, an America Mooochell and the rest of us can be proud of. Gays, at long last, can serve openly in America’s military. After 55 years, I can finally enjoy my morning coffee. The P-BO hailed this achievement by dropping these lines:

Today, the discriminatory law known as ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ is finally and formally repealed. As of today, patriotic Americans in uniform will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love. As of today, our armed forces will no longer lose the extraordinary skills and combat experience of so many gay and lesbian service members.

Now if I were a patriotic aging, bald, fat guy with gimpy knees, bad eyesight and an ever failing back, I’d sue the military for discrimination “in order to serve the country I love.” I am all of those things, but I actually love the country enough to not place my personal wants and desires ahead of the country I supposedly love.

Even if the P-BO and other Ivy League educated elites don’t not want to admit it, however many gay and lesbian service members are gained through this policy, many times more will be lost because of it.

It is also going to be a legal quagmire. A whole new protected class has been thrust upon the military. I can’t wait for the law suit requiring military chaplains to marry Bruce and Larry at the base chapel. They call it a slippery slope because you don’t stop sliding, gaining speed every inch on the way down, until you finally crash at the bottom.

Our church just ended its 50+ year relationship with the Girl Scouts because of that organization’s insistence that the church chuck 2,000 years of catechism and allow for the membership of lesbians in its troop. Sorry, you join the Catholic Church, they don’t join you. The program for young girls in the parish will continue under a different name. They will have their own fund raiser and we’ll support that with our thin mint money. Geez, I hope they come up with something good, because I really like thin mints.

This is the way it works with tolerant liberals. You tolerate every hare brained socially destructive scheme they come up with or they label you a racist, homophobic, Earth hater.

And so it will be with the end of DADT. It’ll start with mandatory sensitivity training in lieu of combat training. Then the imposition of one of those Lesbian, Gay and Transgender recognition days, which later will become an entire month. These days/months are designed by liberals to raise awareness and build unity. They are for the most part divisive jokes. Like the controversy during black history month where the black cook planned a “black menu” of fried chicken and other stereotypical black foods. She was excoriated for her insensitivity and the menu was pulled. No liberal saw the irony of a black working woman being maligned by the “smart people” in neckties for doing her job during black history month.  If she had planned the menu on anyday in May, no one would have said a thing.

Then will come the precepts that will require LGAT to be enlisted, promote and offered key assignments at rates far exceeding their actual numbers in the ranks or society. Discharging one for cause will become impossible. The pressure will be relentless until everyone is required to fallout in lavender fatigues with a pink feathered boa. I predict a steady exodus of career guys at their first opportunity.

Elections have consequences. This is the hope and change 52% of Americans wanted. And they have gotten it in spades. Ooops. Can you say that? No. You can’t.  You racist, homophobic, Earth hating bastard.
