In late 2010, Congress used a lame-duck session — after the November elections — to overturn “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”, the de facto ban on open homosexual behavior in the US military. Even prominent Republicans caved in. US Senator Scott Brown not only voted for it but bragged about voting for it in his television commercials when he ran for re-election. In 2012, while running for president, Mitt Romney told reporters that the repeal was working fine and he would not attempt to reverse it. MassResistance and others, however, had predicted that it would lead to terrible consequences.
This week Bryan Fischer has written a devastating article revealing what the politicians in both parties are now afraid to talk about.
Male-On-Male Rape Epidemic in Obama’s Pro-Deviancy Military
One of the things we predicted when the infamous crime against nature was dropped as a bar to military service was an inevitable descent into moral and sexual debauchery in our armed forces.
And we were right.
Homosexual conduct is immoral, unnatural and unhealthy. There are a host of pathologies associated with male homosexual conduct, including random, promiscuous, anonymous sex, a highly elevated risk of HIV/AIDS and a proclivity toward sexual violence.
This is not a lifestyle any rational society, let alone its military, should embrace or support.
Now we are getting more information about just how twisted and dangerous this lifestyle is.
According to the Daily Mail, a prominent newspaper in the UK, male on male rape in the United States military is reaching epidemic proportions.
Absorb this tragic excerpt:
When a man enters the military he is ten times likelier to be sexually abused, and in 2012 alone there were an estimated 14,200 reports of male rape.
Read that again. A man who enlists in the United States military is ten times more likely to be on the receiving end of sexual abuse than if he remains in the civilian population. The risk of being raped jumps a staggering 1,000 percent.
Our military has become a playground for sexual predators, a veritable smorgasbord of victims for homosexuals on the prowl.
It would be stupendously stupid not to accept the plain fact that, as the public becomes aware of these sordid and tragic realities, recruitment, retention, readiness and morale will plummet.
Here are some excerpts from this article:
In a recent GQ article, more than a dozen veterans and current service men came forward to tell of their sexual assault, and how the military institution failed time and time again to bring their predators to justice or get them the psychiatric help they needed…
Steve Stovey, Navy: ‘As a man, I can’t perform the way I used to. I just feel damaged. All I remember, along with the pain, is the slapping sound of being raped. I try to make love to my wife, but I can’t – I’m triggered. I’m traumatized by that sound.’
This is problematic since men are much less likely to report these incidents, leaving their attackers in positions of power and keeping the pain inside to boil over into other relationships.
The power structure within the military also makes these attacks more prevalent, because men in lower ranks may find it hard to report their attackers if they are superiors.
‘When a gunnery sergeant tells you to take off your clothes, you better take off your clothes. You don’t ask questions,’ former Marine Sam Madrid (name changed) said…
Kole Welsh, Army, 2002 – 2007: ‘I had actually let the assault go, because I didn’t want it to interfere with my career. I wanted to be an officer, and I just said, “Bad experience, won’t let that happen again.” But there was some residual damage. A month and a half later, I was brought into a room with about nine officers and told, “You’ve tested positive [for HIV].” I was removed from the military and signed out within a day. It was a complete shock…’
And when the men aren’t silencing themselves, the military is doing it for them by discharging victims for misdiagnosed personality disorders and letting their attackers continue to serve.
Trent Smith, Air Force, enlisted 2011: ‘He was a senior aide—he had a direct line to the top. Being invited over to his house, I just took it as I should go. Looking back, I ask myself, Why didn’t you do anything? It wasn’t like he held me down or tied me up. I didn’t want to cross him. I really didn’t feel like I had any choice. I had just turned 19. It could be my career. I froze and went along with it.’
Because sodomy is now a most-favored sexual proclivity in President Obama’s military, male victims of rape have no one to tell without placing their military careers in jeopardy.
And they have a vanishingly small chance of getting justice if they do complain. “The military justice system… has only convicted 7 per cent of all MSP cases that go to trial, which is why an estimated 81 percent of victims never even report.”
In other words, in 2012 there were almost certainly more than the 14,200 male-on-male rapes that we know about. Our military has become a cesspool of homosexual degeneracy.
“Meanwhile,” concludes the Daily Mail, “the victims continue to suffer in silence.”
Here’s what GQ says on this subject:
Sexual assault is alarmingly common in the U.S. military, and more than half of the victims are men. According to the Pentagon, thirty-eight military men are sexually assaulted every single day. These are the stories you never hear—because the culprits almost always go free, the survivors rarely speak, and no one in the military or Congress has done enough to stop it.
And according to GQ:
Men develop PTSD from sexual assault at nearly twice the rate they do from combat… Military sexual trauma causes a particularly toxic form of PTSD. The betrayal by a comrade-in-arms, a brother in whom you place unconditional trust, can be unbearable. Warrior culture values stoicism, which encourages a victim to keep his troubles to himself and stigmatizes him if he doesn’t. An implacable chain of command sometimes compels a victim to work or sleep alongside an attacker, which can make him feel captive to his suffering and deserving of it.
A weakened, enervated, morally eviscerated military compromises its ability to do its job and it makes us all less safe.
Bottom line: it is long past time to reinstate the ban against homosexuality in the United States military. Our national security depends upon it.
