The debt crisis might be the focus of most of the nation right now, but nothing can distract Elaine Donnelly from her campaign to prevent gay and lesbian soldiers from serving openly and honestly in our armed forces. Friday she told Frank Gaffney on Secure Freedom Radio:
Everyone in Washington is distracted by the debt crisis, and it is a crisis, but I think the damage done to our only military is much more serious because we can always fix the economy when things go wrong, most of the time, but once you undermine and destroy the culture of the military-what makes it better than any other armed forces in the world-once you make it a social experiment as a political payoff to the LGBT left, then you create problems.
. . .
The day and the hour that the president puts his hand to a paper, certifying no problems to the military, he will own the San Francisco military that he has created.
Donnelly may not agree with San Francisco’s politics, but perhaps she should stop and think before she degrades a “San Francisco military.” Does she just want to mock the sacrifices of service members from the Bay Area who are putting their lives on the line right now? Or is she just disparaging service members from San Francisco who have given their lives for our country?
In the past, Elaine Donnelly has shown no compunction about denigrating gay and lesbian service members—after they’ve sacrificed for our nation, she’s pushed hard not to thank them, but to fire them. I guess today she’s added a new category to the men and women in uniform who aren’t worthy of her respect.
