Which is exactly what has been happening ever since then-President Bill Clinton issued his “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in the mid-’90s. I was in the military then, and vividly remember the s_it storm that started…and it went downhill from there, especially under Obama. What so many liberal Dems (who have never served in the military), and their equally ignorant accomplices in the dominantly liberal mainstream media down want to accept is…that nobody has a right to serve in the military. There is no constitutional right to serve. It’s a privilege. Secondly.. The military discriminates all the time, and has been doing so for generations. If you’re too tall, you can’t fly fighter jets. If you’re too fat, you can’t join. If you’re disabled and/or in a wheelchair, you can’t join. And, on and on.. The mission of the U.S. military is to WIN wars. Period! Anything that undermines that mission, including all of the politically correct social engineering bs imposed on it by Democrat presidents and lawmakers, puts our troops’ lives in jeopardy, and undermines our ability to WIN.
This is so outrageous and offensive, its hard to put into words. Its one thing to get your cultural training, pamphlets and so on when you go to another country. Those of us who have been there, and done that, have gone through that. No big deal. We endeavor to build bridges, and be respectful of our hosts, when in their country. But, for a Brigade Commander (full colonel) to tell his troops that are here “stateside” to be culturally sensitive to Muslims in AMERICA and not eat in their presence? Huh? Are you kidding me?! When was the last time a commander admonished troops to learn about, and be more tolerant of, Christians? I’ve never heard such a thing. This is just more political correctness being forced upon the military. COL Glasz should be relieved of his command for this embarrassingly poor judgment call on his part. Unreal..
Outrageous!! Not only is this stupid strategically, its abhorrent and disgraceful. Shame on the DoD! Hopefully Congress will intervene NOW and stop this cold. Call your member of Congress and both U.S. Senators and tell them NOW is NOT the time to be laying off soldiers and other members of the armed forces.
