It is getting to the point where Bryan Fischer’s obsessive hatred of all things gay has become so fundamentally incoherent that he is now practically cackling with glee that gays have “just lost their ‘get out of jail free’ card,” thanks to the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
Apparently Fischer believes that gays have been signing up for the military just to, you know, test it out for a few weeks, knowing that if they didn’t like it, they could just come out and get discharged.
But now that DADT has been repealed, Fischer wants all these “would-be limp-wristed enlistees” to know that if they sign up for the military now, they are stuck for the duration:
Well, all that’s gone now, both for gays and straights willing to tell odious lies about themselves. If a homosexual signs up now, he’s stuck with the whole magilla. Go to your superior officer now and say, hey, I’m a flaming homosexual, I hate the army, let me out of here, the superior officer will say, tough darts, those days are gone. You’re stuck with us now, Nancy-boy.
So, who’s sorry now?
This may be the silver lining in this whole mess. Conservative groups, simply as a public service, may want to sound this message far and wide out of simple, straightforward compassion, just in order to protect potential homosexual soldiers from themselves and from the distressing discovery that they just kissed off a handy exit option that nobody else had.
The more this message resounds, the fewer homosexuals will want to enlist. It’s one thing to be gay, and say, hey, I’ll give it a few weeks and then bail if I don’t like the food, can’t get enough action in the barracks, or thought I’d enjoy ogling male soldiers in the shower more than I did.
Those days are now shortly to be a distant memory for our homosexual friends. They enlist, they’re stuck with the whole program just like everybody else.
In other words, they had preferential treatment and special privileges, a status and privileges and an exit strategy denied to their honest and straight counterparts. And homosexuals just bargained it away. Now, they will discover to their dismay, they’re back to having equal rights instead of special rights.
Bottom line: be careful what you ask for. You just may get it.
