Yesterday, in an astounding act of competence, the Senate voted to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the policy which kept gay and lesbian servicepersons in the closet for nigh unto twenty years. Most everyone is happy that this horrendous bit of foolishness has been swept aside.
Granted, one would expect the Republican Party to oppose the repeal of DADT. After all, this party has become the bastion of closet cases, hateful jackasses, and douchebags of varying degrees of douchebaggery. Republican senators came up with all sorts of reasons why DADT shouldn’t be repealed. But here’s what Senator Moonbat had to say:
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., noted that in his conversations with members of the military they had a simple message for him about repealing the policy.
“They’re saying if it isn’t broke, then don’t fix it,” McCain said. “I understand the other side’s argument because of their social-political agenda, but to somehow allege that it has harmed our military isn’t justified by the facts.”
At the same time, McCain acknowledged even then — before the vote — that the repeal would pass.
“I hope that when we pass this legislation that we will understand that we are doing great damage,” he said.
“Today is a very sad day,” McCain sighed later.
Yes, Senator Moonbat, today is a very sad day. But do you remember what you said in 2006 about this same policy? Don’t remember, Senator Moonbat? Well, thanks to the magic of the Intarwebz, we can remind you:
The day that the leadership of the military comes to me and says, senator, we ought to change the policy, then I think we ought to consider seriously changing it because those leaders in the military are the ones we give the responsibility to.
So, when the Pentagon basically said DADT wasn’t really a feasible policy to maintain, you vigorously (well, with as much vigor as a desiccated assmunch such as yourself could muster) opposed them.
Yes, Senator Moonbat, today is a sad day. It’s a sad day when bigoted, callous, craven fuckers like you claim to represent the nation. It is sad that good men and women who wanted to serve their country had to wait decades for a venal institution to finally get a clue and extend just one bit of equality (we’ve got miles to go yet). It is sad that you Senator Moonbat have virtually no scruples whatsoever and are comfortable benefitting from the oppression of others. It’s infuriating that you are more than happy to parade your bigotry for all the world to see—you were comfortable with the possibility of repeal when the possibility was slim to none, weren’t you, Senator Moonbat? You want to run around and say that repealing this pathetic foolishness will harm the military and your asshattery is justified by “facts”—what “facts” might those be, you blinkered fuckshit? What about the data that shows that the majority of those serving in the armed forces don’t think that there would be any negative consequences to the repeal of DADT? That’s fact, you fossilized troglodyte. And “social-political agenda”? Indeed—what do you think DADT was? Something laid down by the 8lb 6oz baby Jesus and written in the Ten Commandments given to Charlton Heston and John Wayne?
You know what? I’m spent. I’m just glad that DADT is dead. Now go in a corner and shut the fuck up, all you bigoted shitmonkeys.
