Bryan Fischer : Today’s Military No Longer Has “Virile American Manhood” Because of Obama, Homosexuals
Bryan Fischer has a few things to say about today’s military.
One of the pillars of American society that must be imploded for Obama’s dream to become reality is the American military, the strongest, mightiest and best equipped military in the history of the world. The military is the key to our security, peace and tranquility as a people.
If America is to be brought down, our military must be emasculated, neutered, feminized, and weakened beyond repair.
That process is happening at warp speed under the direction of our current commander-in-chief, and it is impossible to believe it is anything other than a deliberate strategy of sabotage on his part. He is Samson at the pillars, pushing with all his energy to bring the roof down on all our heads.
Here are just five examples. The convergence of these on Obama’s watch cannot possibly be coincidental.
Oh boy. This should be fun. FYI, anything here on out that’s quoted and starts first, second, etc is wisdom from Bryan.
First, homosexuals have been forced into the military against the will of military leaders. Despite the fact that the heads of three of the four branches of the military testified that admitting open homosexuals into the military would compromise recruitment, readiness and retention, Obama did it anyway. He did not force gays into the military in spite of these consequences, he did it because of these consequences. This is what he wants: a military unable to recruit, unready for battle, and unable to retain its finest warriors.
Already the military is experiencing the sad and disturbing effects of homoexuals in the military. The majority of victims of sexual assault in the military now are not women but men assaulted by predatory homosexuals. This problem will only get worse.
Recruitment is rapidly going to become an intractable problem for our military because the military is being used for social engineering instead of to fight America’s wars. Young Americans want to be soldiers, not lab rats.
Really? Most sexual assaults in the military are due to “predatory homosexual?” Can Mr. Fischer site a source for this?
2. DADT Repeal Is Why Sexual Assault Is on the Rise
Some of those arguing against women in combat also argue that the number of men who report being raped or assaulted stems from another “social experiment,” letting openly gay men and women serve.
But this relies on the false assumption that sexual assault is about sex. It’s not; it is a violent crime that is about aggression, domination, and power. And there’s no evidence that gay men commit the majority of male-on-male assaults. While the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” was fully implemented in September 2011, there was no spike in the percentage of male victims in completed investigations in 2012.
3. The Number of Men Reporting an Assault Can’t Be Right
Critics also argue that there’s just no way that the (slight) majority of reports of “unwanted sexual contact” in this year’s survey came from men, and that the Pentagon’s math or survey methodology must be wrong.
But the extrapolated survey number estimating that around 13,000 military men experienced unwanted sexual contact is consistent with VA’s data that approximately 1 in 100 men who seek health care through the VA screen positive for military sexual trauma.
With 1.2 million men in uniform and only 13,000 reporting any sort of assault that could come close to the VA’s numbers. The DoD’s own report delivered to Congress backs this up further, saying that 12% of victims are male whereas 88% are female. Yes 13,000 men were assaulted compared to the 12,000 women who were, but math clearly shows us that women are being assault at far higher and disturbing rate.
Active-duty female personnel make up roughly 14.5 percent - or 207,308 members — of the more than 1.4 million Armed Forces, according to the Department of Defense.
One in three military women has been sexually assaulted, compared to one in six civilian women, according to Defense. According to calculations by The Huffington Post, a servicewoman was nearly 180 times more likely to have become a victim of military sexual assault (MSA) in the past year than to have died while deployed during the last 11 years of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Second, as homosexuals are being forced into the military, Christians are being forced out. Again, this is intentional on the part of this president, who has profound sympathies for Islam but none for Christianity. Chaplains are being censored, pro-family groups like AFA are being identified in military training sessions as threats to national security, and Christians who have a problem with open homosexuality are told to find another line of work. Since the more devout a Christian is, the more of a patriot he is, the military is being stripped of both its faith and its patriotism.
First no Christian has been forced to leave the military over the repeal of DADT. This is another far-fetched Christians being fed to the lions meme.
Second, “since the more devout a Christian is, the more of a patriot he is,” I’m not even sure how to respond to such an idiotic and immature statement. All I know from personal experience is that some of the most selfless and dedicated Soldiers I served with both overseas and at my duty station were both Christians and non-believers.
Third, women are now being introduced into combat. This will weaken our military as a fighting force and make it less able to defend our land and to carry out its mission. Women simply do not have the upper body strength or stamina to withstand the rigors of combat. Morale will be weakened, sexual problems will increase exponentially, readiness will suffer, and retention will go into the tank.
I wonder what the Congressional Research Service has say about this…
Hypothetically speaking, if a female soldier carries 70 pounds of equipment five miles and exerts the same effort as a male carrying 100 pounds of equipment the same distance, the differing standards could be viewed as ‘gender-neutral’ because both exerted the same amount of effort, with differing loads. Such differing loads, in certain scenarios, may or may not matter, particularly in terms of ammunition, medical equipment, communications equipment, and medical supplies, commonly carried by foot soldiers. (According to a U.S. Army Report, a rifleman in Afghanistan can be expected to carry an average fighting load of 63 lbs. to an average Emergency Approach March Load of 127 lbs.
As for morale, retention, etc etc suffering neither were a problem after integration and the repeal of DADT, so I can’t see why it would be once women are in combat units.
One does wonder if Fischer is aware that females and homosexuals serve in the IDF. I’d love to hear his thoughts on that.
Fourth, there has been a noticeable and equally disturbing trend to purge not only Christians but experienced generals from military service. The number of generals either drummed out of the service or forced into early retirement since Obama took office is growing by the month. Some have been flushed due to sexual indiscretions on their part, but in other cases pretexts have been manufactured to cashier them. Many of these generals (for example, Carter Ham) were our most effective and experienced military leaders. By definition, these generals are being replaced by men with less military experience and less military wisdom.
The Carter Ham meme returns. General Ham retired after serving as head of Africa Command he wasn’t cashiered. Granted he retired two years early of the mandatory retirement age, that doesn’t many anything. It’s normal for a four star to do this.
On a side note…
Gen. Ham, U.S. Army Forces in Africa commander, stands apart from most U.S. generals in one striking way. Unlike his four-star peers, Ham knows how the other half live — as in enlisted soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.
He didn’t begin his military career after graduating from West Point or the U.S. Naval Academy. Rather, Ham started his career as an enlisted infantryman in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. This unique perspective made Ham the right general to lead the Pentagon’s study of how a repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy on gays in the military would affect troops fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Ham has become a sort of go-to-guy for Defense Secretary Robert Gates. His last major assignment was to complete a study into a soldier who opened fire and killed 13 soldiers at Fort Hood. Ham pulled no punches with that review. “Ham’s report on that matter recommended disciplinary action against six people, most of them at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, who, according to Ham’s report, ignored clear signs of the psychiatrist’s increasingly ‘aberrant’ behavior,” reported Stars and Stripes.
The November 2010 DADT study concluded repealing the 1990s policy would have a limited impact on the military and drew global headlines For this review and the Fort Hood study, Ham has not only gained the trust and respect of senior Pentagon leaders, but also prominent defense lawmakers.
For instance, Senate Armed Services Committee member James Webb (D-Va.), called the DADT report “an incredible piece of work.” Webb also noted Ham, who co-led the study with Pentagon General Counsel Jeh Johnson, pulled off the DADT review “without politicizing the men and women in uniform.”
Nice try Bryan, should’ve done your homework. Gen. Ham led from the front on the repeal of DADT.
Fifth, combat pilots are leaving the Air Force in an evergrowing stream. This has now become something of an emergency, particularly since the military spends so much time and money training each pilot. The USAF is now offering bonuses that amount to several hundred thousand dollars in a desperate attempt to retain their services.
This one was new to me. I had to do a search on this but the answer is, as always more straightforward than our Christian friends would lead us to believe.
Empty cockpits are bad news for the military, which is already shoveling money into the development of the world’s most expensive program, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet — expected to cost nearly $400 billion. The cost is a double whammy for taxpayers, because the Air Force said it costs taxpayers about $6 million to train a fighter pilot.
Several factors are behind the exodus of pilots, officials said, including a surge in demand for better-paying commercial pilots, the stresses of deployments and reassignments to fly combat drones, the remote-controlled technology that has reshaped modern warfare.
As a result, the Air Force is offering a souped-up incentive package under something called the Aviator Retention Program, which was first rolled out in 1989. The program now offers a $25,000 signing bonus per year for nine years — nearly twice as long as the usual contract…
Today, just 65% of pilots are deciding to extend their service past their 11th year, when they choose whether to stay for an additional five years. That’s compared with 80% in 1993.
Air Force pilots typically earn about $90,000 by the time they complete their 11th year. The median annual wage of airline pilots, copilots and flight engineers is $103,210, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ latest numbers.
There have been fighter pilot shortages in the past, but the competition promises to be fierce in the years to come as airlines hunt for young talent because of a surge in retirements.
Last year, passenger jet maker Boeing Co. released a report that estimated a global need for 460,000 new commercial pilots over the next two decades. There are currently more than 71,000 active airline pilots in the United States.
Neither US Airways nor American Airlines, which are in the middle of merging, has hired pilots in more than a decade, and are now beginning a large-scale recruiting effort to fill spots.
US Airways and American are anticipating the retirement of more than 2,100 pilots within five years because of the mandatory retirement age of 65.
In all the stories speculating on the cause of this loss of pilot manpower, I have not read one suggestion regarding what I believe to be the true reason for the loss of pilot retention: this is not the military they signed up to serve. My educated guess is that the feminizing of the military, especially through open homosexuality and females in combat, has become the final straw.
The military once was an honored destination for the finest of young, virile American manhood. It’s not anymore.
This is Obama’s fault, and it is by design.
No Bryan. We served to protect the idea that America is bigger than one man, one religion, or one political idea. We served so America could one day be that “more perfect Union” our Founders in trusted us with. The American man and woman serve to protect this nation so others may fight the good fight to bring liberty and equal rights to those at home who are denied them. We serve to leave our nation a better place for our children.
Service members don’t need “virile American manhood.” All we need is leadership, trust, moxy, and a belief that our deeds will live up to those who came before us. We need the conviction that America is founded on the belief that “all men are created equal.” We believe in doing the right thing for all, we pay for our end of the social contact in blood,sweat, and tears and ask for nothing in return.
The military we veterans and active duty members signed up for is the one that defends our nation, our Constitution. The same military that protects those that can’t or won’t service. Even bigots like you Bryan.
