Can these guys serve in the military?

They are all transgender men

Of course Brian S. Brown at National Organization for Marriage is taking some credit for Trump’s decision to ban transgender service:

NOM has helped lead a nationwide grassroots movement to oppose the gender ideology of former President Obama and the left, which has attempted to force the transgender agenda on the military, public school children and all institutions of government. Recently, we helped mobilize a massive grassroots push back against 23 Republican members of the House of Representatives who opposed efforts to stop saddling taxpayers with the huge cost of sex changes surgeries and other treatments for transgendered people who join the military.

NOM and Brown couldn’t organize a suntan. And for sheer craziness on behalf of the Catholic Church:

The medical science is clear, nobody is born such that they are the opposite sex “trapped in the wrong body.” Those who feel this way suffer from a disorder called “gender dysphoria.” They deserve our concerns and prayers, but they are not entitled to force all of society to abandon reality to accommodate their disorder, and they are not entitled to force taxpayers to pay for sex-change surgeries and other expensive ‘treatments.’

Brown should stop claiming to support people with “concerns” and “prayers” when combined with a message of hate and bigotry. Moreover, Brown is wrong on the science and wrong to call gender dysphoria a disorder when it is not. The superstitious fool will believe anything that the eunuchs tell him.

According to Mat Staver Trump has been getting advice from unhinged hate group leaders:

Liberty Counsel has been involved in this military issue by meeting with White House officials and others about the need to reverse the Obama policy. Last Friday, Jonathan Alexandre, Director of Public Policy at Liberty Counsel, met with White House officials and discussed this issue, stressing the importance of the President’s power to direct his generals to prioritize unit cohesion and military readiness rather than sacrificing them to the demands of the transgender lobby.

The message from hate group leader Tim Wildmon (American Family Association) starts with “AFA applauds President Trump’s stand on military.”

The American Family Association has been highly critical of the transgender military policy of President Obama’s administration. AFA applauds President Trump for his courageous decision to end the usage of our military for social engineering and political correctness. American families deserve a military that is focused solely on readiness and national defense.

Courageous? Courageous would be standing up to these snake handlers.

Finally, from Tony Perkins we get:

Family Research Council Praises President Trump’s Decision to Focus on Military Priorities Over Obama Era Transgender Policy

… A Rasmussen survey released last month finds “just 23% of likely U.S. voters think the U.S. military’s decision to allow openly transgender people to serve is good for the military.”

That highlights the fact that Trump made a political decision. He and Perkins claim that transgender personnel are not making important contributions — Trump for politics and Perkins for superstition. Great way to make important decisions.

Israel is under constant attack, every day from hostile neighbors and some hostile citizens. Yet, they allow transgender personnel to serve. People should be judged according to what they can contribute. Their sexual identity should be irrelevant. Which begs the question: What exactly does Agent Orange contribute other than chaos and greed as he lines his pockets from the Oval Office. Americans have to be the dumbest damned people on the planet to do this to ourselves.
