During her testimony at the hearing, Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military readiness, invoked the argument against a repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell we hear all too often – that a repeal would result in :”exotic forms of sexual expression”, “forcible sodomy” and declaring a repeal would lead to a “sexualized atmosphere.”
Even Fox News is reporting the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear arguments on the constitutionality of the Clinton-era Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy[See:Don’t ask, don’t tell challenge rejected], stating:
“The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to the Pentagon policy forbidding gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military, granting a request by the Obama administration.” [Emphasis Added]
However, LGBT activists have an alternative method of overturning this biased and unconstitutional piece of tainted American history, H.R. 1283, the Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2009 [“MREA”].
In a sad and twisted moment, the Obama Administration has decided to delay the repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy until 2010. The policy, implemented during the Clinton Administration, prevents gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military. Should it become known that they are homosexual, they loose their jobs.
In recent discussions online about the pending repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (“DADT”) one commenter took hatred to a new level (anonymously of course). A man/woman under the handle “Union Sucks” and claiming to be a retired Army Officer not only encourages a heterosexual boycott of the U.S. Military, but also wants gays murdered.
