Via press release from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
Just two days removed from the second major terror attack in two weeks, the Pentagon has an announcement. No, it isn’t about the United States’ new plans to fight ISIS in the wake of Orlando and Istanbul. Nor is to reassure the American people that their military is stepping up its mission against its Middle East enemies with the world on high alert. Quite the opposite, in fact.
While terrorism’s latest victims overwhelm Turkish hospitals and airports everywhere lock down their security, our president is ensuring that America’s military will continue be too distracted and fractured to cope with any of these crises. In a move today — one that completes the administration’s long-term project of dismantling one of the latest bastions of American tradition — Defense Secretary Ash Carter officially welcomed the gender confused into the military’s fold at a press conference formally declaring open transgenderism in the ranks of the military. The world is facing some of the greatest evil ever unleashed on innocents and the President’s plan for combating it is letting men dress like women (and vice-versa) in our fighting force? Is this his plan for striking fear in ISIS’s hearts?
This is what comes of a president who uses our military to fight culture wars instead of fighting real wars against the enemies of our nation. Over the grave concerns from senior military leaders, the administration is setting off a chain of events that many, including our own Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, think could change the effectiveness of our Armed Forces forever. “This has everything to do with President Obama’s social agenda for the military — and nothing to do with military readiness, which should always be the Pentagon’s first consideration,” FRC’s 36-year Special Forces vet said today.
It goes on and on for another jillion words. Perkins makes zero mention of pesky fact below.
The 19 countries confirmed as allowing transgender people to openly serve in their militaries are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States (from July 1, 2016).
