Three-quarters of Americans say that they support openly gay people serving in the U.S. military, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll
soldiers in Iraq show support for gays in the military with a silly and sexy routine set to Ke$ha. From the clip description: “Created by Codey Wilson and his elite step team of volunteers. Don’t give us a hard time for this, please? We’re just a few good men trying to enjoy ourselves and get this deployment over with. No one is gay… that we know of. Not that there is anything wrong with that!”
Military Times just beat them to it.
The newspaper, which is independent from the U.S. armed forces, polled some 3,000 active duty troops and found a steep decline in opposition to a repeal. In 2004, the Times found 65 percent of troops resisted a repeal; today, that figure stands at 51 percent. At the time time, active duty troops who explicitly favor a repeal rose, from 24 percent to 30 percent.
Didn’t John McCain say he would vote to repeal DADT if the Generals or the troops told him too? John you have troops straight troops we think not that there is anything wrong with not being straight in Iraq making Dance videos to support Gays!
Just what are you waiting for to change your vote a formal invite? Maybe someplace fancy?
John McCain its moral, and WRONG for America to keep treating American solders who serve our country like they were illegal immigrants.
Its also wrong for America to keep treating illegals like they were Jews before Hitler rounded them up and demanding anyone suspected of being illegal produce ID papers.
Its is a sad sign of the times that President Truman had the Stones to desegregate the army even though I’m sure the poll numbers were much more worse. Truman did not need polls or approval Jon you Pathetically Desperate to be Popular Worm! Truman he Led! Truman had a pair!
The same Bullshit arguments about unit cohesion, morale etc were used against African Americans and against Woman serving.
You would think John McCain would have realized that the Conservative position is wrong by now.
Real World experience should trump belief once that belief has been disproved. Don’t the British let gays serve? Didn’t Bush let into the army felons, gang bangers, and racists just to get enough troops to go to Iraq?
But Gays can’t serve?
Tell me Senator McCain very nice suit, your nails look manicured…is there something you want to confess? Like just who does your make up?
In my neighborhood we would well…all wonder if you are Don’t Asking Not Telling good thing the Senate has different rules than the army huh Fancy Boy?
AZ wants to stop Mexicans even if they are not illegal for their ID papers because we just look illegal!
African Americans despite Obama are still getting the short stick!
Gays are treated as less than Felons, Gang Bangers and Racists by the Army!
It’s Fracking Time we all start sticking together and defending each others rights!
