Preparing for the performance in drag
Chuck Hagel, the so-called, Secretary of Defense is worried about the integrity of members of the military after a spate of cheating, lying, stealing, bribery, fraud, kickbacks, sexual harassment, extra-marital affairs, and drug use incidents, Politico reported. Hagel has ordered an independent review.
“He is concerned about the health of the force and the health of the strong culture of accountability and responsibility that Americans have come to expect from their military,” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told Pentagon reporters in early February.
“What worries the secretary, [is] that maybe he doesn’t have the full grasp of the depth of the issue. And he wants [is] to better understand it and to the degree that there are systemic issues, he wants to attack them,” reported DOD news.
Under the Obama Administration, moral relativism and political correctness are becoming the bar for military conduct. They also seem to be unaware of the image they are presenting to the world.
Perhaps they should look at some of the messages they are sending.
For instance, do LGBT burlesque shows like the one just performed at an Air Force base send the right message? Do they maintain the dignity of the armed services – of our “fighting” men and women?
Is our military’s job to make LGBTs feel good about themselves or to develop the finest fighting force in the world?
Compare to Putin’s troops. Who would you fear more? Our troops are supposed to be ready to kill the enemy. They are not social workers.

Drag queens and drag kings, to be precise.
Six service members — gay, lesbian and straight — donned heavy makeup to dance and lip sync songs such as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” for a raucous capacity crowd at the Rocker NCO Club at Kadena Air Base. The event was a fundraiser for the recently formed Okinawa chapter of OutServe-SLDN, which is the largest nonprofit advocate for the military’s LGBT community. Read more at Stripes
Is this really a good idea? Does this send the right message? Or would a performance by Gary Sinese or Kid Rock be the better choice for a professional organization?
