    I’ll assume that’s cited from someone else besides my Tom Crawford cite above, or your Reuters one. So where’s it from? I assume it’s some Rethuglican agitprop, cause that’s what it sounds like. Some of their ridiculous campaign or fund-raising materials. JMP

    Wow.

    “The whole objective of the neo-dem homosexualization initiative is to destabilize the political infrastructure of the US. They use homosexuals as shock troops, the idea being to agitate until a thing has been either modified, or destroyed, whichever best suits their needs. For example, once they have forced homosexuality on the military, the consequence will be a likely drop in enlistments, the true goal of the neo-dem intelligentsia. Once this is accomplished, its onward and forward to the next objective, using a new tool for agitation and subversion. The thing is, homosexuality is being crushed into the American psyche, it dominates the corrupted neo-dem controlled airwaves to such extent that it has become a constant source of agitation, always there waiting, for any lull in the day to day minutiae, and when this lull occurs, BAM, their right back at you with it. Amazing when you consider that of the total population of the USA(some 300,000,000), less the 2% of it is homosexual! Its not about homosexual rights, its about destroying a society from within.

    Its no secret(at least to anyone but p30)that the statist left has long embraced the tactic of subverting societies morality through the introduction of perversions and the tensions associated with them, via the popular culture, a vector that they control, almost absolutely. These tensions are introduced under the veil of tolerance, and as such are INCREMENTALIST in delivery, and intended to destabilize. The facts are that marxist/leninism was created, and is being perfected, by scientists, social scientists, such as psychologists, political scientists/sociologists, and psychiatrists.”

    Umm No. It’s a fairly complicated but common legal maneuver due to the fact that the judge really does not have the authority claimed or hoped for here to actually overturn the policy. Still, Most if not all Dems are for Repeal. Most Repugs in Congress & their leadership can’t say that. Getting there is a problem, but the time interval since DADT actually helped public opinion on the issue as Tom Crawford was saying the other day:

    Political football? Yet another overly simplistic crass generalization. At best. JMP

  4. Just in case there was any doubt that Dems are playing political football with the issue…

    Meh. I don’t think “the political climate” is the problem. The vast majority of Americans oppose Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, as they have for years. The problem is the bigots in the Senate and their enablers who place the privileges of those bigots above the rights of their constituents.

    Really, you don’t “lose” with 56% of the vote unless more than 6% of your “supporters” value rules that empower petty, hateful men like John McCain more than simple decency. I blame every one of them for this failure.

    If this isn’t proof that the Rs are blocking literally EVERYTHING because they can’t stand the Democrats achieving a single significant priority this year, then I don’t know what is. Pretty much everyone agreed during the 2008 election that DADT was over and done. Now even frigging Susan Collins can’t get on board?

    Today, I just really really really hate Republicans. Even my arch Republican parents don’t think gays should be barred from serving in the military, so why can’t any of these jackasses just vote their conscience for o nce?

  7. JMPrince says:

    Done deal, and failed as predicted. And yes, this means an even nastier climate when they return. If ever. Bias, prejudice, hypocrisy & hatred always have friends in the GOP leadership. Now & forever. JMP

  8. Jen B. says:

    You are so right. I’m actually pleasantly surprised that Reid’s trying to push this one through.

  9. Jason D says:

    I’m still trying to figure out how a policy that’s so widely despised manages to stick around. If this thing doesn’t pass, Obama needs to just say “eff it” and push out an EO. We did just fine after EO 9981 was enacted.
