Democrats Criticize the Pentagon for Not Participating in Pride Month
Break out the fireworks. Pop a top. Pride Month 2018 is nearing its end. July 1st brings a little less Chick-Fil-A hate and fewer men in banana hammocks marching down Main Street. Christians get a yearlong respite from begging forgiveness for their "sins."
In the left's grand finale for the month, Democrats are demanding to know why the Pentagon didn't join in on the festivities. Yes, really:
A group of House Democrats from the Armed Services committee are demanding to know why the Pentagon didn't issue an official memo marking June as LGBT Pride Month.
Concerned that Pentagon leadership is "backing away from supporting and celebrating" its LGBT military members, Rep. Anthony Brown, D-Maryland, and seven of his Democratic colleagues penned a letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis asking him to explain the decision not to issue a memo.
The group of Democrats is also demanding answers as to why Defense Department leadership declined to address the Pentagon's annual Pride event.
"The absence of demonstrative support from DOD leadership at events like these can have the effect of isolating our LGBT service members and employees," the letter sent Thursday read.
I guess the top brass should have put the whole "defending against all enemies foreign and domestic" thing on the back burner. Sashaying in the parade is the bigger priority.
Contrary to leftists' beliefs, the Department of Defense's job is to MOAB the bejeezus out of ISIS and dispense freedom pellets in the direction of anyone who wants to be starting something. Not throwing parties for fancy-lads.
It seems to lefties, "inclusion" and tolerance are more important than combat effectiveness. They'd prefer the Pentagon fill out their days patting LGBTUVWXYZ people on the back for being LGBTUVWXYZers. The Mad Dog has no time for such tomfoolery.
