Skip to comments.Pentagon: Service members now allowed to wear uniforms in gay pride parades
Posted on 07/20/2012 4:23:22 AM PDT by markomalley
The Department of Defense is allowing service members to march in uniform in a gay pride parade for the first time in U.S. history.
The Pentagon on Thursday issued a military-wide directive saying it was making an exception to its policy that generally bars troops from marching in uniform in parades.
The exception is being made for San Diegos Gay Pride Parade that will take place Saturday.

I just look for the day that military units will be required to march in formation at these demonstrations. With unit members being ordered to march, sodomite or not.
Gee, I wonder what the policy would be for a pro traditional marriage, focus on the family parade...
Our enemies never had a reason to laugh at our “warriors” before...
...they do now and our troops will pay for it in blood on future battlefields because of this self-inflicted loss of respect.
- The immediate loss of security clearance (whether in uniform or not)
- Administrative discharge ("other than honorable")

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

"use a condom" Jennings
From the Washington Times...
EDITORIAL: At the president's pleasure
'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009
A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar". It's getting hard to keep track of all of this president's problematic appointments. Clearly, the process for vetting White House employees has broken down.
In this one case in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required but actually encouraged the relationship.
According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical." Mr. Jennings' defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.
However, the new audiotape contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated."
Mr. Jennings' denials about these events reveal a lack of remorse. He has not admitted that he made mistakes in this case, and he now refuses to answer any questions about the scandal. Don't forget, this is a presidential appointee we're talking about. Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants serving at the pleasure of the president. Encouraging and covering up man-boy sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force Mr. Jennings to come clean.
This is almost enough to make me stop coming to Free Republic. I just can’t bear to have my senses assaulted by this anymore.
It seems like every other thread is about this, and it is making me grind my teeth.
It is as if the floodgates are opened, and the homosexual agenda is carried forth like a tidal wave. Nothing can stop it now, it appears.
I have said it for years that the prime goal of the homosexuals was the military. If they could break that open, all the rest will fall into their lap.
They got their wish. People I respected like Rumsfeld were fine with it. People I campaigned for like Scott Brown voted for it.
I just can’t take it.
If we can’t wear uniforms at a pro-life demonstration or whatever I have a problem with this.
Why oh why isn’t the rest of American screaming about how “Those people” are getting special treatment?
It’s like them and illegals in this country are getting more consideration more by our government than us voting Americans.
We are allowing the progressives to silence us and our rights are being sucked from us.
Military members need shout loud and hard. I’ve got to go see what Allen West has to say. I know he isn’t happy right now.
With an Fascist, Neo-Commie, Islamic-Jihadist/Muslim Brotherhood appeaser/defender/supporter as "commander in least" (who HATES America/Military) coupled with the restrictive Rules of Engagement, the cutting of the Pentagon's budget, the lifting of DADT, allowing gay marriages to be performed on Military Installations, now this...
WHY anyone would consider joining is beyond me?
The Joint Chiefs are made up of nothing but PC, REMF, armchair generals who mostly, have never served in harms way and are nothing but political hacks who are more concerned with their careers than looking out for the "troops."
For someone who served proudly for 8 years back in the 60's and am pushing 70, I've never been so ashamed of our Military and worry for our Country.
I would hope such a spectacle while in uniform would draw a "Conduct Unbecoming" charge. Given gay serviceman a "free pass" to participate in the San Diego gay pride festival is a big mistake. You just know that permission came down from Panetta.
Celebrating a culture of death is what we are doing as a nation. Homosexuality kills, and we officially encourage it. We encourage young men and women to violate their natural law instinct to do all possible for their own survival. When we do so, we invite them to deny the natural and Nature’s God who has established that natural law.
Those who reject natural law in one area will eventually find reasons to reject the good in other areas, if not all areas.
Betrayals, atrocities, and cowardices will increase, whether hidden by subterfuge or technology. And narcissism, a condition that always eventually realizes the fallability and mortality of its love object, will lead to self-loathing.
Fred Phelps and his lunatic crew of protestors are looking a little less crazy, with their calls for God to judge America for promoting homosexuality, amazing ain’t it?
You can thank the RINOs who broke ranks and joined the Dems in the 2010 Senate for this.
” Those who reject natural law in one area will eventually find reasons to reject the good in other areas, if not all areas.”
A very good point.
Jeez ...i am so sick of liberals..pretty soon we will be allowing people to claim thier dogs a dependents on tax returns..oops..why do they have the need to poop in everyone’s play pen
How many of those who posed for a photo-op in Military uniforms purportedly protesting DADT—were prosecuted? Isaiah 51:8 for the moth will eat them up like a garment...” and
Pastor Arnold Murray, shepherds Chapel (member of the Frozen Chosen) today in his lecture on the Arm the Lord commented
“how about same sex marriage and what’s taking place in our Military as example of the moths eating —as put in Isaiah 51:8 )?Seems what ought be expected when the man chosen to lead the Pentagon has the position to purchase his co-operation in the cover-up by this Administration of the guns to Cartels game known as Fast and Furious.
IT’S LEAGAL TO EXPOSE THEMSELVES TO CHILDREN IN THAT CITY?
Because they see Gays as the new victim class and they need a cause like this, to give them legitimacy. Gay's marching around in uniforms allows Obama+CO to accuse (certain) Republicans of attacking soldiers.
Ironically most Republicans are very timid about the issue of homo-sexual rights.
Gee, I just feel so safe now, knowing that our military will be made up of a bunch of mentally ill pansies and pansy sympathizers. Thanks, Americans — both liberals and non-liberals, for allowing this to be done to our great military.
If this isn’t evidence that the US is on its way out, I don’t know what else is.
SO glad my husband is retiring in the next 2 months. NO more.
From what I can tell only one side, the libs, were fighting that battle. That is why they won. I mean the propaganda battle of minds which is how these are really won.
DOMA was the last real Republican act to slow this down.
If you were a young man, would this impact your decision to join the military?
This is the the result of that choice. Hope they are now happy that “RINO” McCain wasn't elected.
[ Why oh why isnt the rest of American screaming about how Those people are getting special treatment? ]
BECAUSE..... The American People elected an in your face Marxists as President.. A Marxist that is bound to enact all the sedition and treason the democrat party has stood for in the past.. all of it.. Democrat voters are NOT GOOD PEOPLE... Just being a democrat shows what you believe or even don’t believe.. Democrats vote for bad things because they are bad people.. with bad morals whether acted on or not.. The democrat party is an insane cabal of traitors because they are bad people.. not because they are merely wrong..
It doesn't matter, and here's why:
Last month, the SCOTUS ruled that the "Stolen Valor" act was unconstitutional. Thus, ANYONE, regardless of military service, could wear a uniform anywhere.
I believe now that you'll see entire swaths of faggots marching in parades in full military uniforms purchased from local Army/Navy surplus or even one of the many online uniform retailers. There will be no way to discern them from real members of the military.
It is tempting to say just ‘yes’ but since I never had interest in joining the military, and because I am from a different generation, the one that lived through the aids plague which we were blamed for, and where most children had married opposite sex parents(especially on TV),so an intellectually honest answer is that my answer to that personal question is not all that relevant to what is happening now.
You know I cant give the standard reply :)
Back in 1990s National Review predicted this battle of minds was lost when women were let in the military male jobs.
A decade or so I had a female stylist cut my hair and that day she had a male assistant (gay manorisms naturally) wash my hair. It gave me the total creeps and I told her that later. I dont even like a gay cutting my hair. Hair washing is a sensual activity. Same with massage. I only let women do that,
It really makes you think, doesn’t it?
SCOTUS makes it legal to impersonate a member of the military, now the military makes it legal to march as a homosexual in a gay pride parade.
There’s absolutely no way anyone could tell me that this isn’t part of the Marxist/Socialist/Communist plan to turn America into a third-world toilet.
You can bet that servicemembers wouldn’t be allowed to attend a Tea Party rally in uniform.
Good point, I didnt even think of that one.
A tea party rally is really a ‘American producer’ rally as opposed to a homo rally.
I think this was the plan. No patriot with any morals will want to join. The military will be weakened (it’s been being undermined in various ways for decades) and willing to follow a leftist government in opposition to the Constitution. It will only be fit for using against citizens, not for fighting America’s enemies.
