In 2010, President Obama repealed “don’t ask, don’t tell” regarding open homosexuality in the military.
Last week, in January 2013, Obama’s Pentagon lifted its ban on combat positions for women.
Both of these actions belong among the notable anti-discrimination moments won during the history of this country.
This is the problem.
The Muslim terrorism we are at war with has no respect for women, condoning the “sacred” beating of wives for refusing to have sex. As for gays, Muslim extremists stone curious teenage boys to death. Some Muslim groups kidnap 8-year-old girls for a violent “circumcision” procedure which will reduce their pleasure for the rest of their lives. Adultery is punished with violent mutilation as well.
No doubt women and gays in America will be human shields for the terrorists, and will be subject to kidnapping and more horrible wounds and deaths than everyone else. American military leaders will no doubt take advantage of this fact, and discrimination will no doubt occur in their decision making.
If the neocons succeeded their fake attempt at re-creating a fake World War II, their final “Axis of Evil” nation, North Korea, would likely be under attack now. In situations like this, avoiding discrimination of open homosexuals and women would not be an issue. For Muslim terrorists, however, our opposition to discrimination angers their intent to force Sharia Law on the world, and will motivate them to further attack America, Israel, and our other allies.
Fighting discrimination is something we can all do in our daily lives. Fighting Muslim terrorists is dangerous and requires appropriate decision making. To throw “tolerance” in the face of violent Muslim terrorists who oppose it is dangerous. You are not in the Middle East to support women’s rights. You are not in the Middle East to have gay sex. You are in the Middle East to destroy enemies of America and Israel who are intent on destroying secular democratic republics and violently wounding and killing people everywhere. Let’s not throw any additional political wood in the fire.
