Anti-LGBT activist Elaine Donnelly said yesterday that a push to end the ban on transgender military service members will create an “incentive” for people seeking sex reassignment surgery to join the Armed Forces, turning the military into a transgender “magnet.” In an interview with Janet Mefferd, the Center for Military Readiness head criticized the Palm Center and prominent donor Jennifer Pritzker, a transgender veteran and billionaire, for its study that called for an end on the ban on transgender service. “Why doesn’t she take her billion-plus dollars...

Center for Military Readiness head Elaine Donnelly appeared on Sandy Rios In The Morning today to once again warn of the perils of allowing women in combat. She told the American Family Association radio host that the Obama administration’s plan to open combat roles to women service members is “like saying let’s take those cheerleaders and put them into the frontlines of the NFL and football games.” Rios said that the problem all started with the “feminist influence” found in movies that made women think that they “can do it all.” “We are...

During an interview with Janet Parshall, anti-gay activist Elaine Donnelly pointed to a story about a drag performance at an Air Force base as proof that “everything we predicted is starting to happen” about the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Donnelly said that the USO may soon have drag shows and thus creating “social turmoil in the Armed Forces.” Of course, Donnelly also predicted in 2010 that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell would lead to the reinstatement of the draft.

The last few years have been tough on Elaine Donnelly, as the Phyllis Schlafly protégé appears to have lost the battle over her group’s two main priorities: maintaining the ban on openly gay service members and excluding women from combat positions. Donnelly, the head of the Center for Military Readiness, appeared on Secure Freedom Radio last week with Frank Gaffney to demand that Congress intervene and block the Obama administration from permitting women to serve in combat. She predicted that “lives are lost” if women have the opportunity to serve in such... MORE >
Fischer Warns of a 'Complete Sexual Meltdown' and the 'Reinstatement of the Draft' over Women in Combat Policy

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association is now recycling the exact same talking points against allowing women the opportunity to serve in combat that he used opposing the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT). While none of the dire predictions Fischer warned about regarding the end of DADT ever materialized, Fischer made similar warnings while speaking yesterday with Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness. Like with the DADT’s repeal, Fischer predicted that the policy will undermine readiness, cohesion, security and performance, possibly leading... MORE >

While the Religious Right reacted with apoplectic rage following the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, the lifting of the ban on women in combat has brought dejected but relatively subdued responses from conservatives. American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, who in December spoke out in favor of the ban by lying about the Israeli military’s policy on women in combat, tweeted that the decision was part of Obama’s plan to “feminize and weaken the U.S. military.” Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness said that “lives could be...

Center for Military Readiness head Elaine Donnelly appeared on In The Market with Janet Parshall yesterday to discuss the Todd Akin-sponsored bill that would ban same-sex marriages at military installations and permit discrimination against gay service members under the guise of a “conscience clause.” The marriage equality ban was removed from the final language but the “conscience” language remained. However, that was not enough for Donnelly, who said that same-sex marriage services at military installations jeopardizes religious freedom: Donnelly: There’s... MORE >

As Republican leaders express their outrage at service members marching in a San Diego pride parade in uniform, Religious Right activists aren’t holding back either. In her radio alert yesterday, Mission America’s Linda Harvey accused the military personnel who marched in the parade of bringing “disgrace to the uniform and to America”: Harvey: The San Diego homosexual pride parade on Saturday, July 21st, broke new ground. For the first time the Pentagon allowed members of the military to dress in full uniform at an event with a political agenda, and what an agenda it... MORE >
