Homosexuals in the military have been put on notice that the Commander-in-Chief is going to start cracking down on homosexual rape.
Most ordinary Americans have no idea how serious the problem of male-on-male sexual assault is in the military, a problem which has been accelerated by the repeal of the ban on open homosexuality in the armed services.
But the word is leaking out. Even the New York Times has taken notice:
But in a debate that has focused largely on women, this fact is often overlooked: the majority of service members who are sexually assaulted each year are men.
In its latest report on sexual assault, the Pentagon estimated that 26,000 service members experienced unwanted sexual contact in 2012, up from 19,000 in 2010. Of those cases, the Pentagon says, 53 percent involved attacks on men, mostly by other men.
One cannot help but notice the spike in sexual assaults since 2010. What happened in 2010? Ah, yes, the repeal of the ban on homosexuality in the military.
So while most Americans think of women as the primary victims of sexual assault, the abysmal reality is that 14,000 males in our military are victimized every year by other males. (Only two percent of the sexual assaults on men are committed by females.) (This makes women victims of 12,000 reported sexual assaults every year, which is 12,000 too high and raises severe questions about the wisdom of inserting women into combat units.)
But clearly the military now has a massive problem with homosexual sexual abuse, and it in fact is a larger problem even than male-on-female sexual assault. The numbers in truth are likely even worse, due to the reticence of male soldiers to report homosexual assault.
Slate, another wingerleft publication, has acknowledged the same dismal reality: “The fact (is) that most military rape is male-on-male.”
Now most Americans, when the president mentions sexual assault, assume he’s talking only about the male-on-female kind. But he can’t be, if the figures from his own military are to be believed.
Thus when the president clenches his jaw and pledges to land like a falling safe on all sexual assault, the reality is the majority of the targets of his presidential wrath will be homosexual males.
Who’d have thought we’d live to see the day in which President Obama would bring the hammer down on homosexuals? Well, that day is here, if we take the president at his own words.
President Obama made it clear yesterday, in speaking to the Marines at Camp Pendleton, that the days of homosexual assault are over. He’s going to crack some homsexual heads, bust some homosexual rapists down.
Here is what he had to say yesterday:
Keeping our military strong also means ensuring the safety of everyone who puts on the uniform. No military unit can succeed without discipline, without trust, and without cohesion. So I want you to hear it directly from me, the Commander-in-Chief: It undermines what this military stands for and it undermines what the Marine Corps stands for when sexual assault takes place within our units. And that’s why we are going to work together — all of us –to stop these crimes of sexual assault, and uphold the honor and the integrity that defines the finest military on Earth. And that message is coming all the way from the top. (Emphasis mine.)
So what exactly does the Commander-in-Chief pledge to do to homosexuals who commit sexual assault? In May, he referred to sexual assault as an “outrage” and a “crime” and said that sexual assault perpetrators, the majority of whom are now revealed to be homosexual males, should be “prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged. Period.”
So the president is taking us back to the days of General George Washington, who also had to deal with homosexual activity in the Continental Army. When two male soldiers were caught in flagrante, in an act of consensual sex, Washington summarily had them drummed out of his army. Literally. He lined up his troops in two long lines, and had the disgraced soldiers march through them while the drummers drummed.
So while the current president will grant a free pass to consensual homosexual sex, he’s told the nation that the free pass days are over for non-consensual homosexual sex. And he’s going to make homosexual perpetrators pay. He said so himself.
