According to a leading senator, it presented “an intolerable risk” to national security.
According to a consortium of retired generals, it would “break” the U.S. military. And according to a leading advocacy group, over “528,000” servicemen and women would be lost.
Something this terrible must be averted. We must take action now!
Except it is too late. The scary danger that these generals, John McCain, and the Family Research Council were warning about wasn’t a future terrorist attack or war with China, it was allowing gay and lesbian service men and women to openly serve in the U.S. military. That “grave risk” is now celebrating its one year anniversary, and none of the dire predictions proved correct.
Republican/Conservative ‘rule by fear” rhetoric is forever wrong. #forward #dadt
