Bill Clinton implemented “Don’t Ask. Don’t Tell” for homosexuals in the military. Barack Obama took it ten steps further by committing to recruit transgender sailors, soldiers, airmen, and marines.
Secretary of Defense ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis has put the kybosh to the former President’s plan.
Mattis released a statement: “Since becoming the Secretary of Defense, I have emphasized that the Department of Defense must measure each policy decision against one critical standard: will the decision affect the readiness and lethality of the force? Put another way, how will the decision affect the ability of America’s military to defend the nation? It is against this standard that I provide the following guidance on the way forward in accessing transgender individuals into the military Services.”
See, liberals, it’s not homophobic or a slight on the LGBTQ community. It’s a matter of being able to defend the nation.
Transgender activists are hopping mad. They released a statement claiming that not allowing transgenders to openly serve in the military will “compromise military readiness.”
Let’s look at these two opinions. We have a retired Marine General, who has dedicated his life to the military, saying that transgenderism in the military is not a good thing. Conversely, a group of gender-confused liberals believe that Mattis doesn’t know what it takes to prepare for the defense of the country, but they do!
Young Conservatives reports:
Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, officially froze an Obama-era policy to recruit transgender soldiers in 2017, and polls are suggesting it’s a popular move amongst Americans.
Two-thirds of swing voters agree the Pentagon should halt plans to recruit transgenders.
It’s a fact we know too well at this point that the Obama administration thrust social policy onto the Pentagon in a way that distracted heavily from the U.S. military’s mission.
