Posted on 02/24/2011 9:39:57 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the militarys new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday.
The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units.
Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill, the top enlisted man in Afghanistan where 100,000 U.S. troops are deployed, said that the sessions on respecting gays rights will go right down to the forward operating bases, where troops fight Taliban militants.
I have heard about the training that will be forthcoming to the battlefield, Sgt. Hill told Pentagon reporters via a teleconference from Kabul.
We will take our directions from the Department of Defense, from the secretary of defense, the chairman, as well as the service chiefs of each service. Our plan is to take their direction, and were going to execute that training right here on the battlefield.
No unit is exempted, he said.

The troops will be laughing horselaughs to themselves at this.
That should make for some interesting YouTube video...if YouTube permits it of course.
The troops should flip the bird to whoever is holding these so-called “sensitivity training” sessions. Then they should walk out.
What’s Gates and Obummer going to do....court-martial the entire Army and Marine Corps?
Enough is enough of this left-wing bullcrap.
Christians won’t be signing up or extending. This is a nail in OUR coffin.

You don't hear Republicans complaining about Obama’s decision to not defend DOMA, setting us up for paying SS and medicare to same-sex couples. And you will hear crickets on this, I miss 1993.
At the very least, SNL’s “writers” will have some fodder, upon which they’ll save their arses for the near future.
The late great American military. RIP
Coool,,,that’ll help em out a lot as they are fighting their way into Libya,,,
Now when we pray to God to be merciful and protect our sons and daughters it isn’t just from a vicious enemy from without. It’s from those who are in control of our armed forces.
So unconstitutional from a million standpoints. Forcing respect for such disgusting and demeaning behavior takes away the freedom of conscience and religion. I suppose they have messed with the troops minds with the homosexual Afghanis who molest their boys and parade them around....The military homosexual commander in chief is trying to destroy our military now...
You will not have troops who are honorable and have character, if they practice homosexuality. It is not possible. Forcing respect of that act is a gross violation of conscience and it goes against our Constitution...laws can not go against the nature of man. They are unjust according to the intent of our Founding Fathers. There is nothing natural about homosexuality. It is a perversion and it always includes pederasts. It advocates child abuse.
Listen to the first paragraph of this....it is what homosexuality is all
I talked to my son the other day about this. He’s a middle manager rank in the Army. He’s got three years to do and then he’s retiring. He can’t stand the way things are but he has invested so many years that he can’t just walk away without his full retirement. He says that many, many troops feel this way but with the shaky economy, they’re not sure they can make the kind of money out of the military that they make in, so they stay, but just putting in time.
The Warrior ethos is dying. Don’t see how we can survive if things don’t change.
I went to Basic and OCS with guys who were obviously gay. No one said anything about it. Everyone made fun of everybody. Jews, Blacks, Hispanics, inner-city punks, hicks. Everybody got ripped on. Except the gay guys. It was unspoken that if you made fun of them, they would go to the cadre and you would be screwed. But in the end we were all brothers.
This is not going to go over well.
I’d rather have half blind, half-deaf guys doing our fighting for us instead of these panzy-faced faggots.
total and complete disrespect for the CIC, SecDef and every flag officer that pushes this. The men will do the tasks, learn to mouth the words and then know in their hearts that their leaders have NO HONOR.
The three legs of our country destroyed by the democrats and quislings.... economy, education and our military.
All we need is TOFUS standing over a toppled statue of Liberty with a banner stating..." MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!"

“I don’t think we can turn things around in this country unless we elect a strong, take no prisoners, military man in 2012.”

We see a lot of former military guys in the oil patch—they are used to difficult conditions, long hours, and weather. Some mighty good hands come this way from there. Just saying that might be a direction to consider, especially for a younger person.
America's Re-education Camps
In the controversy over Martinez's expulsion, one aspect of the unsavory incident is often ignored. Or, perhaps, it has become so commonplace that no one remarks upon it any more. Namely, the university sentenced Martinez to penance through a public confession and to the re-education of his values through psychological therapy. The purpose of the mandatory training -- whether it is anger management, sexual harassment awareness, diversity training, etc. -- is to change a human being's basic values to conform with the PC view of race or gender.
Snip...On university campuses today, the slightest remark can cause a "offender" to be sentenced to public confessions and "re-education" of their values.
A lengthy 5 page read mentioned in the article...Thought Reform 101
Keep in mind this was published in March 2000...
The goal of such training, according to Amirall-Padamsee, is "to produce graduates who are individuals committed to educational and social justice, and not just a tolerance of, but a validating of difference."
The homos will be granted special rights, bank on it. And the "transgendered" freaks will be next. The U.S. is heading full-bore down the cultural drain.
Why not, they already get Muslim sensitivity training... [/sarcasm]
He says that many, many troops feel this way but with the shaky economy, theyre not sure they can make the kind of money out of the military that they make in, so they stay, but just putting in time.
100 percent agree which is why the military will say this is a success. They could not have picked a better time to implement this.....the economy is horrible. The military has more people than they need and throw this in and people won’t be able to leave.....yet. This will only become a problem when the economy bounces back and by then they will just blame the economy and GI Bill.
The next Republican nominee should promise that as her first order of business, the troops will be told to disregard all training ordered by Obama.
It actually makes me glad I’m old. I won’t have to live long in what this nation is becoming.
Why not give the Fags training on joining the human race?
No - that would be sexual harassment in the workplace...
Rule #1. If you drop your soap in the common shower, don’t bend over to pick it up!
"the shaky economy"Perhaps the powers-that-be bank on their ongoing homosexual promotion to serve as a distraction from their EPIC FAIL economy.
“My worry is that at some point, many will say, “This country ain’t worth fighting for anymore”.”
Legalized reverse discrimination has done that for plenty of people; let the freaks who run the show go defend it. Between Saddam and Obama I’d rather Saddam was our president.
Priorities! We all know what they are for the big 0.
Placemark and hoping it’s all a bad dream and I’ll wake up and it will never have happened.
“Nowadays HR runs the companies. I just don’t see the military folks leaving for this when as soon as they walk into Merck they will have the same training.”
True about HR “running the companies”; odd for a department that historically was a place to employ low-skilled relatives of people higher up the corporate ladder. Deep down even the big companies know that on any day their homosexual employees can be arrested at a rest stop on their way to work; they are just unstable (part of the mental illness). Merck has many jobs in NJ; even our GOVERNOR was doing that stuff.
“On university campuses today, the slightest remark can cause a “offender” to be sentenced to public confessions and “re-education” of their values.”
The natural result of that is tribalism in which people just stick with like-minded others who look like them, speak like them, and eat the same kind of food as them. Kind of counter to what the universities’ stated goals are, no? I enjoy studying different parts of the world, but the PC nonsense has me secretly beaming with pride that our students today think Outer Mongolia is somewhere out past Pluto. All learning (outside of the limited parts needed to earn a living) basically stopped just as they wrested control of the agenda...
One tough thing for these people reaching their 20 years is that many of the jobs that gave preference to veterans aren’t available anymore; much government hiring at all levels has not only stopped, but the workforces are now contracting.
The loss of talent will not be made up by recruits coming in under looser standards for different reasons than those who are leaving initially joined.
I'd like to see some of the senior leadership in theater tell those guys back in Washington that they're just not going to do this.
I love our troops and I enjoy working with the military, but one thing I despise is the ass-kissing mentality that prevails.
If just a few of the senior leaders would enlist some backbone and tell the SECDEF and others how stupid this is, it would very likely get some traction.
Henceforth all care packages will contain soap-on-a-rope
