Do you want your Commander-in-Chief to be saluting cross dressing soldiers that are allowed to openly serve in that way? Or do you think that our President should have higher standards for our military?
President Barack Obama is forcing the Pentagon to repeal its ban on transgender service members, meaning U.S. soldiers will soon be serving under the command of cross-dressing soldiers.
The policy change is another example of how progressives bypass Congress and the voters by using the military to promote and advance social changes nationwide. Since 2009, for example, the military has been used to aid illegal immigrants and to help change the definition of marriage so that it can include single-sex couples — regardless of the far-left policies’ impact on combat readiness and recruitment.
The repeal of the long-standing exclusion of cross-dressing transgender soldiers is coming “within weeks” or at least by the end of July, according to The Washington Post.
The Obama administration has been debating the new transgender-boosting policy for the better part of a year, and even now, insiders say the final policies are not set in stone. But the possible policy announcement comes a full six months after Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter set a time limit for the policy to be crafted.
The last public comments Carter made were last May when he said the issue was “complicated,” but he was still “confident we’re going to get to the right place in this.”
As USA Today reports, the new policy would order all branches of the military to implement new policies for recruiting, housing, and uniforms for transgender troops.
Ashley Broadway-Mack, the president of the American Military Partner Association, told the Post that his organization, which represents lesbian and gay and transgender service members, is “breathing a heavy sigh of relief” over the impending policy change.
