Post v. Putin

“Only yesterday, homosexual sodomy, which Thomas Jefferson said should be treated like rape, was outlawed in many states and same-sex marriage was regarded as an absurdity…What, one wonders, is the view of those Evangelical Christians who sustain the Republican Party on homosexual propaganda in the public square?  Do they agree with the [Washington] Post? Or do they agree with {Vladimir] Putin?  Patrick J. Buchanan

Post v. Putin — Whose Side Are You On?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The Washington Times, August 19, 2013, p. 29

The culture war has gone global.gay-street2

And the divisions are not only between, but within nations.

“Suddenly, homosexuality is against the law,” wailed Jay Leno. “I mean, this seems like Germany. Let’s round up the Jews. Let’s round up the gays. … I mean, it starts like that.”

Leno was speaking of Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Obama eagerly agreed:

“I have no patience for countries that treat gays or lesbians … in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them. … Nobody is more offended than me by some of the antigay and lesbian legislation that you’ve been seeing in Russia.”

Leno and Obama were referring to a new Russian law prohibiting “homosexual propaganda.” Moscow is also warning foreigners, including visitors to the winter Olympics in Sochi, that propagandizing for gay rights can get them two weeks in detention. No kiss-ins allowed.

“Medieval,” howled The Washington Post. “Mr. Putin’s war” on gays and lesbians is “part and parcel of his lapse into xenophobia, religious chauvinism and general intolerance.”

Monday’s New York Times has a front-page story — “Gays in Russia Find No Haven, Despite Support From the West” — featuring photos of roughed-up protesters.

Our moral and cultural elites have put Putin on notice: Get in step with us on homosexual rights — or we may just boycott your Sochi games.

What this reveals is the distance America has traveled, morally and culturally, in a few short years, and our amnesia about who we Americans once were, and what it is we once believed.

Only yesterday, homosexual sodomy, which Thomas Jefferson said should be treated like rape, was outlawed in many states and same-sex marriage was regarded as an absurdity.

Was that America we grew up in really like Nazi Germany? Continue reading

“Public statements from the Pentagon since it removed the ban on direct ground combat jobs for women signal that the armed services plan to change their physical standards to ensure integration of the sexes, analysts say.” Rowan Scarborough

Army colonel: Physical strength not the end-all, be-all of combat service 

Rowan Scarborough, The Washington Times, August 12, 2013, p. 9

An Army officer writing in a prestigious journal says the services should not overemphasize physical strength when deciding whether a woman qualifies for women-in-combat_live_s640x430direct ground combat.

Col. Ellen Haring, on the staff of the U.S. Army War College, says commanders need to downplay obstacle courses and judge a service member’s ability to stay calm and think quickly.

The Pentagon has lifted its ban on women serving in the infantry, tanks and special operations, and the branches are examining all their physical standards in preparation for introducing women into these units in 2015.

Some military analysts fear the Pentagon will discard some standards to ensure that a significant number of women qualify.

“Perhaps it is time to take a hard look at what really makes a competent combat soldier and not rely on traditional notions of masculine brawn that celebrate strength over other qualities,” Col. Haring says in the current issue of Armed Forces Journal.

She cites World War II hero Audie Murphy and North Vietnamese insurgents as examples of small people who came up big on the battlefield. Continue reading

Giddy Liberal Media Celebrates DOMA

“The liberal media could not contain their pro-gay bias (and joy!) when the Supreme Court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was 171541014_8unconstitutional.  The Court’s 5-4 decision in late June requires the federal government to legally recognize—and bestow benefits upon—homosexual couples.  Adam and Steve are now viewed the same as Adam and Eve at the federal level.”  L. Brent Bozell III

“For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude.  Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened…Therefore God delivered them over in the cravings of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves.  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created [their sexual toolkit] instead of the Creator, who is blessed forever.” Paul, Romans 1:21, 24

“Husbands, in the same way, live with your wives with understanding of their weaker [physical] nature yet showing them honor as co-heirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.” Peter, I Peter 3:7

L. Brent Bozell III, The Watchdog, August 2013, p. 1, 2

The liberal media could not contain their pro-gay bias (and joy!) when the Supreme Court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was unconstitutional. The Court’s 5-4 decision in late June requires the federal government to legally recognize — and bestow benefits upon — homosexual couples.

Adam and Steve are now viewed the same as Adam and Eve at the federal level.

Gays, of course, were deliriously happy about the ruling and so were their stenographers in the left-wing media. The decision was hailed by some journalists as one of the greatest “civil rights” advances in history and some liberal dunces even likened it to the Emancipation Proclamation.

We documented, exposed, and neutralized that liberal — and so often lunatic left — media bias through News- Busters, CMI, BMI, the News Analysis Division, CNSNews.com, MRCTV, our press releases, e-mail alerts, and during numerous radio and TV interviews of our expert staff, including yours truly.

It’s no overstatement to say that the pro-homosexual bias in the media was nauseating, as it has been for decades and unbearably so since Barack Obama became president. With the DOMA ruling, all pretense of neutrality or balance was discarded.

Let’s look at how the liberal media bias truly came out of the closet. Continue reading
