Ben Johnson,Floyd Reports
Those who oppose treating the military as a social engineering laboratory for the Gay Left’s agenda should consider turning their ire against a new target:pro-gay “conservatives”and their establishment Republican allies. As I noted two weeks ago,U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips ruled the military’s “Don’t Ask,Don’t Tell”policy “unconstitutional”—a decision that certainly would have surprised James Madison or General Washington. The Obama administration essentially threw the case,making,in Phillips’words,“no affirmative case” against DADT’s repeal,which the president is on record supporting.
John Gizzi reported in Human Events this weekend that Family Research Council President Tony Perkins is “pleading”with National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Sen. John Cornyn,R-TX,not to address the Log Cabin Republicans next week. The Log Cabin Republicans is a homosexual Republican group that occasionally describes itself as “conservative.”
It is also the group that brought the successful lawsuit against “Don’t Ask,Don’t Tell.”
Why are Cornyn and the NRSC kowtowing to the very group that just used judicial activism to impose a policy that will weaken the military during the middle of two wars? Sadly,a number of leading “conservatives”have spent several years telling their traditional elder brothers in the movement to sit down,shut up,and unfurl the rainbow flag of our new effeminate fighting force.
