Same-sex attraction in the military

April 16, 2009

There’s a particularly stupid column in today’s Washington Post from generals advocating against lifting DADT. Jonathan Capehart responds (online only). 

One thing that stands out from the column is this argument from the generals’ column as particularly inane:

“Zero tolerance” of dissent would become official intolerance of anyone who disagrees with this policy, forcing additional thousands to leave the service by denying them promotions or punishing them in other ways. Many more will be dissuaded from ever enlisting. 

Yes, because if there’s one thing the military is known for, it’s its tolerance of dissent from enlisted folk.
