The left will never be satisfied. No matter how many times conservatives, the religious, and others compromised, hoping this will finally satisfy the left, it will never be enough.
The radical left, a tiny but obnoxiously loud minority is now evidently dictating policy for the entire country. And as I stated – no matter how much we give them, it will never be enough.
Now that homosexuals have been given the right to wed countrywide by five of the nine Olympians, I’m sure many on the right thought to themselves – well – glad that’s over with. At least we don’t have to fight over that anymore. Maybe the left will finally take a break and let us be for a while. Well – think again.
Right on cue, as if some wacky leftist think tank has a check list of demands, and they’re just ticking them off one by one, the issue of transgenders in the military is popping up again.
Homosexuals in the military. Repeal don’t ask don’t tell – check.
Homosexual marriage in all 50 states and the known galaxies – check.
Tolerance of transgenderism – check.
Acceptance of transgenderism – check.
Celebration of transgenderism – check.
What’s next? Let’s see. Here is one with which we can kill two birds with one stone: repeal the ban on the openly transgendered to serve in the military. That way we can force the transgender lifestyle on the military, and also further demoralize the right and our troops. It’s a win-win.
Is this our big concern regarding our troops? As Allen West wrote in 2014 regarding then Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel: “I can think of 1000 policy issues on which Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel should focus. Heck, as a Vietnam veteran, you might think he’d care a bit about the current VA death list scandal. We recently reported of a U.S. Navy F-18 fighter pilot who reported the Obama administration’s focus on social issues in the military is adversely affecting readiness. I guess no one in the Pentagon’s civilian leadership read the commanders report.”
No Col. West – I’m sure they had no interest in a dissenting opinion. No one in government ever does, particularly this one.
And of course, the tip of the spear of absurdity are Democrat politicians. The Hill quoted California Democrat, Rep. Jackie Speier confessing the truth saying: “In politics, I think it’s always appropriate to take advantage of timing. Whether it’s taking down the Confederate flag or creating equality in the military for transgender persons.”
In other words, just like not letting a good crisis go to waste, they must strike before Bruce Jenner is pushed off the front page. As an aside, I refuse to call Jenner by his female name, regardless of whether he has the lopitoffophamy procedure or not.
So far there are 20 House members urging Sec. Ashton Carter to make the policy change, and you can bet there will be more to jump on the New Age populist bandwagon.
The Daily Mail writes that Speier is also, “spearheading a bill which is still being drafted for next month to address issues over transgender troops uniforms and healthcare.”
Well, I for one can’t wait to see the new fall line of transgender fatigues. I’m sure it will be fabulous!
“Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality told the Hill that they don’t think the decision should be made by lawmakers.
I was surprised to hear her (I assume it’s a her – who knows anymore) say that. But then I thought – silly me – they have King Barack and his Supreme Court… Jesters. They can fix anything!
Seriously – this is a bad idea, and not because I don’t buy the whole female trapped in a male body or vice versa. It’s the American military they’re screwing around with. They think they can just experiment with our fighting men and women without consequence.
As Col. Allen West said: “We have a volunteer force, but if we now believe it is the mission of the military to conform to every single individual behavior – then why have a military, which is supposed to conform individual behavior to the organization? That’s what makes us a first-class, cohesive, fighting unit. We’re turning our military into a social club. And our enemies are delighted.”
