Cliff Kincaid Reminisces About Time When The Government Classified LGBT People As 'Perverts'

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media is blaming the massive security leak conducted by Chelsea Manning on President Obama’s support for LGBT rights. Although the leak occurred prior to the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Kincaid insists that Obama’s “desire to overturn the homosexual exclusion policy was undoubtedly a factor in Army officials’ looking the other way on Manning.”

Kincaid then tied it all back to Glenn Greenwald, the openly gay reporter who published reports based on information from NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

All of these leaks wouldn’t have occurred, Kincaid reasons, in the good old days when the government labeled LGBT people as “perverts.”

CNN's story "Chelsea or Bradley Manning: Addressing transgender people" ignores the other alternative – he/she is simply a pervert who should have been booted out of the service years ago and should never have received a security clearance. The key question – not pursued by the media – is why Manning was allowed to remain in the Army when he was acting in violation of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," policy.

Manning will pay a price in prison, but those who permitted this to happen have still not been held accountable.



The buck stops with President Obama, whose announced desire to overturn the homosexual exclusion policy was undoubtedly a factor in Army officials' looking the other way on Manning.

In our August 20, 2010, article "Accused Army Traitor Cruised Gay Bars," we noted that, according to information then developed by CNN, Manning had been cruising the homosexual subculture for several years, under the noses of his military superiors, and even went to gay bars.

Despite this homosexual scandal, Congress voted to repeal the homosexual exclusion policy.

In our article "Pentagon Celebrates Gay Pride During Treason Trial," we noted that Obama's Defense Department hosted a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month event which failed to include any mention, pro or con, of the most celebrated homosexual soldier in American history, Bradley Manning, then on trial for treason.

It was a strange omission. Why weren't they proud of their gay solider?



We don't know everything there is to know about NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who supposedly has a girlfriend that he abandoned in order to flee to China and then Russia. But his handler, Guardian writer Glenn Greenwald, is an open homosexual with Marxist links whose "partner" was detained on his way through London and had his laptop, camera, memory sticks, and DVDs confiscated by authorities.

The media won't remind us of this fact, but two previous NSA defectors to the Soviet Union/Russia, Bernon F. Mitchell and William H. Martin, were also perverts.



At that time, the government frowned on employing homosexuals and "deviates." In fact, a 1950 congressional report was titled "Employment of Homosexuals and Other Sex Perverts in Government" and said that the FBI, the CIA, and the intelligence services of the Army, Navy, and Air Forces were all "in complete agreement that sex perverts in government constitute security risks."

Can you imagine a government report nowadays referring to "perverts?"
