Who is Gilbert? You may be sorry you asked. Gilbert is GLBT: Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered. And we just learnt that June is Gilbert Month in the US Army (.pdf), where everyone must attend mandatory Gilbert Indoctrination, display their rainbow flags, and learn of the great contributions of Gilbert Soldiers.
Like, say, Bradley Manning, who hits for two of the four.
At least it’s not Disloyalty and Espionage Month. Yet.
Comments from two individuals, deep underground:
I have been specifically told that, “If you are not on board with this program, there is no place in the military for you.”
Bend over, here it comes, then. As the old Bob Hope joke goes, “I was there when then made gay life legal, and I got the hell out before they made it mandatory.” He was talking about California, but as goes CA, so goes … the Army? Evidently.
What they do is their business, and so we were alright with “legal,” but things like Gilbert Month make it clear they’re going for “mandatory.”
Question: “What’s the difference between a homosexual and a fighter pilot?”
Answer: “The homosexual has a future in the United States military.”
What’s the over-under on the President’s exit pardons in 2017 including one for Ickle Bwadwey Manning? After all, he/she/it was only following his/her/its own bliss, which is now an Army Value.
Lord Love a Duck.
