ARLINGTON, Va. — Should ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ repeal become a reality, the message that the Pentagon’s working group sent to straight troops Tuesday was clear: Deal with it.And today at CNS News, "Straight Troops Must Shower With Gays, Says DOD Working Group" (via Memeorandum).
The working group concluded that integrating openly gay troops into the military would best be achieved with complete immersion, rather than hindered by separate rules or facilities. And straight troops who oppose the decision, with very rare exceptions, should not be granted special accommodations.
And at Black Five:
I think back to the best speech I have heard regarding lawyers, liberals and problems like this and the defense of the nation...PREVIOUSLY: "Senate Repeals 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' — BUMPED AND UPDATED!"
And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives...You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall.
We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!
Thanks Col. Jessup for your supportive words. I have always said I don't care what you do or with whom you do it, but don't demand that I think that it is normal or OK. And mark my words, there are going to be problems.... Huge problems....
So libturds, you might think that you have given us a kinder gentler military that is more fashion conscious and sensitive. All you did today was weaken a country.
