What Fresh Hell Is This?

DADT: AFA Wingnut Fischer Responds OMG LOL

As we all know by now, this weekend the Senate voted to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (hereafter DADT). And as the moon follows the sun the wingnuts have gone insane.

ALl you need to do is to take a peek at American Family Associations's Bryan Fischer. We know exactly where he's coming from with his first sentence:
We are now stuck with sexual deviants serving openly in the U.S. military because of turncoat Republican senators.
(Don't worry, "deviant" is not "name calling" he says. Since it means "departing from usual standards" it's truth telling. Yea, like "zealot" is truth telling, too.)

He calls those Republicans who voted for cloture (Scott Brown, Mark Kirk, George Voinovich, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe) as "traitors" and "renegades" to America and more importantly the Republican Platform:
Esprit and cohesion are necessary for military effectiveness and success on the battlefield. To protect our servicemen and women and ensure that America's Armed Forces remain the best in the world, we affirm the timelessness of those values, the benefits of traditional military culture, and the incompatibility of homosexuality with military service. [emphasis from Fischer]
His solution? You guessed it:
The one hope America has left is to elect Republican leaders at all levels, including the presidency, who will be determined to reinstate the ban on homosexuals in the military in 2013. That is now question number one for every Republican wannabe president, every Republican wannabe senator, every Republican wannabe congressman in the next election cycle: will you support a plan to reinstate the ban on homosexual military service? If not, every conservative must say you can forget about my support, my dollars, and my vote.
I think that's a good idea, by the way. Every Republican (at least at the national level) should be asked repeatedly and until they answer whether they support a plan to reinstate the ban on homosexual military service.

Every Republican.

Too his credit, Pat Toomey has already answered the question:
As I’ve said previously, my highest priority is to have the policy that best enables our armed services to do their job. Our civilian and professional military leadership have now spoken and said we should repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. I would support a free-standing measure to do so.
So I am guessing Pat should expect any help from Bryan Fischer. Anyone else?

The interesting thing about Fischer is the gay horrors that inhabit his imagination. Take a look at what he thinks will undermine the military:
What young man wants to voluntarily join an outfit that will force him to shower naked with males who have a sexual interest in him and just might molest him while he sleeps in his bunk?
Notice the use of the plural "males." If you look closer it's a story of a lone straight male (what, no women in the military?) who's forced to shower with a group of gay men who (of course) soapily lust after him and who might just gang rape him in his sleep. Bryan Fischer has a very active gay male porn imagination, doncha think?

One last thing: He states that the reason all those other countries allow gay men and women into their militiarys is because they know we don't:
The armies of other nations have allowed gays to serve openly in the military. The reason they could afford to do this is simple: they could allow homosexuals to serve in their military because we didn’t allow them to serve in ours.

They knew they could count on the strength, might, power, and cohesion of the U.S. military to intervene whenever and wherever necessary to pull their fannies out of the fire and squash the forces of tyranny wherever they raised their ugly heads around the world.
In this context, does he really want to talk about all those other fannies?

I don't really see what's the problem with DADT anyway???

I would like someone to explain it to me.
