Matt Barber's off to a banging start for Concerned Women for America
The first column by the new Policy Director for Cultural Issues at CWA, “Bam Bam” Barber, takes on the topic of the possible repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. It’s a real gem.
“The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network,” the “Human Rights Campaign,” and a host of other powerful and extremely well-funded pro-homosexual activist groups are leading the charge. But it’s the new Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-California.), who’s sounding the shrill bugle call.
According to the Washington Blade, a top ‘gay’ publication, Pelosi has signed on to the homosexual lobby’s top-ten ‘gay’ wish-list as a “co-sponsor for all 10 gay- and AIDS-related bills that are languishing in Congress.” Of those ten bills, the innocuously titled “Military Readiness Enhancement Act” – which would repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” – is a top priority.
He goes on to insult General John Shalikashvili, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who has called for a revisiting of the policy.
A Zogby Poll in December found that 73% of U.S. military personnel are comfortable serving with openly gay and lesbian colleagues, and nearly one in four (23%) report knowing for sure that someone in their unit is lesbian or gay, including 21% of those in combat units. Bam Bam just goes “la-la-la-la-la,” ignoring the inconvenient facts because they poke holes in his essay.
He probably has nightmares — or is it fantasies — about “dropping the soap.”
It’s no secret that our current military leadership, as they’ve done throughout this liberally manufactured debate, continues to overwhelmingly oppose allowing openly homosexual men and women to enlist. And Shalikashvili fails to provide any evidence whatsoever which would support his pro-homosexual contention to the contrary (other than perhaps his own “evolving” moral compass). He offers no evidence which would indicate that anything has changed or that it ever will change.
In fact, one of the scant few pieces of anecdotal evidence Shalikashvili offers up in attempts to bolster his argument, has the unintended result of causing both hemispheres of your brain to abruptly and violently swap places.
While gathering support for his assertion that it’s now time, and “equality” dictates that openly ‘gay’ sailors be permitted to serve as effective members of, say, a nuclear submarine crew, Shalikashvili cheerfully informs us that he’s had his opinion seconded by “an openly gay senior sailor who was serving effectively as a member of a nuclear submarine crew.” He’s asking for permission to eat that omelet – but already has an empty plate in front of him and egg on his face.
I was waiting for him to blame the retired General’s stroke a few years ago (and subsequent seduction by agents of the homo agenda) for his change of heart, as the wretch Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness did the other day, but Bam Bam steered clear of that trap.
Bonus — you can’t possibly top the bio at the end of this sad column; perhaps Matt is a bit concerned about the whole “penis-possessing” heads of the CWA observations going on…
