With the Congressional repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell now official, it's instructive to note what the major concerns of these social engineering liberals manufacturing the policy were and what were not.
Concern: giving the homosexual lobby another milestone victory in their pursuit of eventual sexual anarchy (no rules, no limitations, no moral expectations).
Not a Concern: the well-being of our troops. Marine commandant General James Amos had warned that the kind of distraction posed by open homosexuality within the ranks could cost lives:
"Mistakes and inattention or distractions cost Marines lives...That's the currency of this fight. I don't want to lose any Marines to the distraction. I don't want to have any Marines that I'm visiting at Bethesda [National Naval Medical Center] with no legs be the result of any type of distraction."
Concern: the politically manipulated part of the Defense Department report that said there were no legitimate obstacles to overturning the policy.
Not a Concern: the objective survey part of the report showing that 40% of combat Marines may walk away from their service if the policy is repealed.
Concern: running social experiments with our armed forces.
Not a Concern: national security.
Yes, we voted many of these folks out of office, thankfully. But their damage has been inflicted, will largely not be undone, and will have devastating effects on our civilization into the future. Leftists must never been given control of the government. This is one perfect indication why.
