First let’s have the news from the pages of the Los Angeles Times:
Air Force member’s allegation of sex assault brings him more grief
Male victims of sexual assault in the military rarely file complaints. When Air Force security guard Trent Smith did, his life got worse, he says.

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — Shortly after he arrived at Ramstein Air Base in Germany in March 2012, Air Force security guard Trent Smith was at an off-base apartment when, he says, a male sergeant touched him and pressed him to go into the bedroom for sex.
“I said, ‘No, I don’t want to spend the night,’” Smith recalled. But Smith, 20, says he felt he had no choice. “I went along with it.”
For Smith, the encounter — which he reported up the chain of command three days later — began an emotional ordeal. As the months passed, his doctors say, the trim, polite airman with an engaging smile suffered bouts of anger, guilt and depression so severe that he contemplated suicide several times.
More disturbing for a Pentagon struggling to gain control of a seeming epidemic of charges concerning rape and unwanted sexual advances in the ranks, Smith’s attempts to get help only worsened his troubles. After a lengthy investigation, the military decided that no crime had occurred, and it later moved to discharge Smith on medical grounds.
The case highlights a little-recognized reality for the male-dominated military. Although members of Congress have focused their outrage on abuse of women in uniform, the Pentagon reported in May that 53% of the estimated 26,000 troops who were raped or forced into sex last year were men.
Although women are proportionally more likely to be the victim of a sexual assault — the Defense Department estimates that 6.1% of women and 1.2% of men are victims of sexual assaults — the fact that men so vastly outnumber women in the military means that the problem affects more men than women.
Only a fraction of those alleging rape or sexual assault file complaints with military police or prosecutors, as a rule, so the Pentagon’s most recent estimates are based on a confidential survey of service members. Smith was among those who did file an official report.
After a six-month criminal investigation, Brig. Gen. Charles K. Hyde, then commander of the 86th Airlift Wing at Ramstein, decided the sex was consensual, according to case records. The sergeant was admonished for an “unprofessional relationship” with a lower-ranking airman, the lightest punishment possible.
The Times is not naming the sergeant because he was not charged. He declined an interview request through a base spokesman at Ramstein. The spokesman, Maj. Tony Wickman, said the sergeant was considered an “above-average airman.”
As usual, of course, I turn out to be completely correct in my predictions from 2010:
In my “day” in the Army, soldiers in the infantry that I served in just would not have tolerated openly homosexual soldiers. There would have been blanket parties galore, until the gay-berets got the message that they were most definitely not wanted. I don’t know that that will happen today, but I just can’t imagine the mindset has changed that much in the years I’ve been out (by which I mean out of the military, and not, you know, “out”).
I heard a Democrat representative today say that the military is having a hard time keeping up its recruiting goals, and so therefore it’s stupid to deny thousands of gay men and women the opportunity to serve. What that omits is the fact that there are a lot of heterosexual men and women who don’t want to be forced to shower and sleep right next to same-sex soldiers who may well want nothing more than to have “relations” with them. There are also a lot of young men who continue to have something of that Judeo-Christian worldview who rightly believe that homosexuality is a serious moral issue, and these young men aren’t going to want to be forced to trust people that they don’t trust with their lives.
“Missile defense” is about to take on a whole new meaning.
And lo and behold, or for you French-surrender-monkey-loving liberals, voilà. Missile defense has taken on a whole new meaning under Obama just as I TOLD YOU SO.
Not only a majority but a whopping majority – as in an even slightly larger majority that constituted a “landslide” for Obama in 2008 - of the rape cases involve some poor bastard who didn’t have adequate “missile defense” against some homosexual sodomy soldier (or sailor, because after all the openly homosexual Village People did sing that song, “In the Navy”). Fully 53% of the rape cases in the military are men getting raped by other men.
The LA Times wants you to think that the 53% of cases of rape being against men is irrelevant given the ratio of male troops to female troops. But I hasten to point out that less than 2% of the population is homosexual – and that “10% figure” is a giant load of crap that is merely a bellwether of the insane ideology of everyone reporting this easily refuted statistic as if it were even remotely true. So we’ve definitely got the “gay military” I described back in 2008. And if you don’t have kung fu missile defense, you’d better stay the hell out of Obama’s military unless you’re a guy who likes being the girl during your rape. In which case you’ve come to the right place signing up for a tour of rump ranger duty.
I think of our prison system, where that less-than-2% of our population for some unknown reason (other than the biblical fact that their lifestyle is an “ABOMINATION” and “A DETESTABLE ACT”) constitute a massive percentage of our inmate population. Go to prison or jail and you’re extremely likely to run into one of these innocent, wonderful homosexuals the media and the Democrat Party are so in love with. To wit: if you’re entering the military or if you’re entering the prison system and you’re a heterosexual, sorry, dude. Keep up with that “missile defense” and just do the best you can. And remember that when they bend you over, you’re sacrificing your “virginity” for Obama’s glory.
This is the funny thing (unless you happen to be a heterosexual serviceman): sexual assaults in the military HAVE SKYROCKETED under the first “gay president” (aforementioned “gay” thing being according to überleftist MSNBC and Newsweek just in case you don’t want to take my word for it).
As an example, military sexual assault cases “skyrocketed” in 2012, according to the news reports. Their words. But then “there were more reported sexual assaults in the military in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013 than in all of fiscal year 2012.” So let’s just say that the rate of the “skyrocketing” has “skyrocketed.”
And yes, that’s “rocket” as in what the poor bastard tries to protect himself from with “missile defense.”
Let me explain why it is that sexual assaults have skyrocketed under “first gay president” Obama. It’s actually very simple: because Obama has purged “religion and morality” from the military that as “commander-in-chief” he has so much control over. And without “religion and morality” you have NO MORALITY AT ALL.
I’ve pointed out the following point again and again:
Washington [as in George Washington, the Father of our country] said:
“Of all the habits and dispositions which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.” — George Washington, Farewell Address
If you want your politics to prosper, the two things you will not separate will be religion and morality. If you want your government to work well, if you want American exceptionalism, if you want the government to do right, if you want all this, then you won’t separate religion and morality from political life. And America’s greatest patriot gave a litmus test for patriotism. He says in the very next sentence (immediately continuing from the quote above):
“In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars.” — George Washington
Washington says, Anyone who would try to remove religion and morality from public life, I won’t allow them to call themselves a patriot. Because they are trying to destroy the country.
George Washington said:
“…And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion…reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” –- George Washington, Farewell Address, Sept 17, 1796
John Adams completely agreed:
“We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” — John Adams
Barack Hussein and the Democrat Party that stinks of all things Hussein are traitors to America and guilty of treason according to the men who fathered America and wrote our Constitution. PERIOD.
Why were our founding fathers so right and Obama and the entire Democrat Party so treasonously and so wickedly wrong???
I wrote a brief response to a comment this morning that I think does a reasonable job expressing the reason why:
This gets to a far deeper problem with secular humanism: there ARE no grounds for morality. To wit, if I am an atheist, what do I have to do such that I am not a “good atheist” the way one could easily point out that one is not a “good Christian” by comparing his or her moral behavior to the ethics of the Bible. THERE IS NOTHING. Stalin and Hitler and Mao were all “good atheists” even though they are responsible for way, WAY over the murders of 100 million people (and yes, for the official record, Hitler WAS an atheist, having been described as such by key members of his inner circle like Joseph Goebbels in private journals.
As an example of that last, here is the entry into Goebbels’ personal diary, dated 8 April 1941 (Tues):
“The Fuhrer is a man totally attuned to antiquity. He hates Christianity, because it has crippled all that is noble in humanity. According to Schopenhauer, Christianity and syphilis have made humanity unhappy and unfree. What a difference between the benevolent, smiling Zeus and the pain-wracked, crucified Christ. The ancient peoples’ view of God was also much nobler and more humane than the Christians’. What a difference between a gloomy cathedral and a light, airy ancient temple. He describes life in ancient Rome: clarity, greatness, monumentality. The most wonderful republic in history. We would feel no disappointment, he believes, if we were now suddenly to be transported to this old, eternal city.”
Similarly, in a 1939 diary entry, Goebbels pointed out that Hitler had “expressed his revulsion against Christianity. He wished that the time were ripe for him to be able to openly express that. Christianity had corrupted and infected the entire world of antiquity.”
Hitler said a bunch of things about Christianity, such as that Christianity was the invention of sick minds. Hitler was an atheist who pointed out to his inner circle that “after difficult inner struggles I had freed myself of my remaining childhood religious conceptions. I feel as refreshed now as a foal on a meadow.”
Liberals are fascists who believe what Hitler said to the masses because Hitler spoke as the Führer of Big Government Socialism (NAZI standing for “National Socialist German Workers Party”) and to them Government is God. The morality of God must be supplanted and replaced with the “morality” of the State. They ignore the fact that Hitler was a demon-possessed LIAR who told the people one thing and told his trusted inner circle something very different (the truth).
So what does one have to do to be a “bad atheist”??? What IS morality to these people??? And the answer is as chilling as the worst of Stalinism: it is whatever the hell they SAY it is at any given moment.
So Obama was a “good liberal” when he said that marriage was the union between one man and one woman in 2008, and he was a good liberal for saying the exact OPPOSITE the moment political expediency enabled him to do so. Because ultimately the “morality” of liberalism is dishonesty and abject personal hypocrisy.
I like the morality of the Bible better. Because “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever,” whereas the “morality” of liberalism is a constantly shifting thing that always and only benefits liberals and their perversions.
The reason that morality is irrelevant to liberal Democrats is the reason that Obama could swear in 2008 that “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman” [and in fact said it on the very eve of the 2008 election to make sure we all heard him lying] and then said the EXACT OPPOSITE THING when it was convenient for him to do so. Because liberalism stands for NOTHING but more liberalism. It’s the same reason that your NEXT Democrat candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, did the same damn stinking lying dishonest depraved thing.
I repeat the moral lecture from a liberal to me, who said:
surely you cannot be so ignorant as to believe the eight mentions of homosexuality in the Bible are appropriate for total guidance in modern situations.
Because he prefers Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s constantly shifting stand and just as constantly self-centered and self-serving “morality” to the eternal morality of God and His Word.
“Morality” to a liberal is whatever the hell he or she wants it to be at any constantly shifting moment in time. And of course every single time it shifts it will reinforce the ideology of liberalism. And every single time it shifts it will agree with Satan and his depraved world and disagree with God and His Word.
If secular humanist liberals tell us not to rape, what does it matter??? Tomorrow they’ll tell us something very different, for one thing. And give that liberals believe in evolution, aren’t they contradicting themselves??? Because after all:
The males of most species—including humans—are usually more eager to mate than the females, and this enables females to choose among males who are competing with one another for access to them. But getting chosen is not the only way to gain sexual access to females. In rape, the male circumvents the female’s choice [p. 53, A Natural History of Rape, MIT Press, 2000, Randy Thornhill and Craig T. Palmer].
“Human rape arises from men’s evolved machinery for obtaining a high number of mates in an environment where females choose mates” (p. 190, emp. added). They further state that “[e]volutionary theory applies to rape, as it does to other areas of human affairs, on both logical and evidentiary grounds. There is no legitimate scientific reason not to apply evolutionary or ultimate hypotheses to rape” (p. 55). In their proposed “scientific” evolutionary reasons why men rape women, they suggest that in some cases heavy metals such as lead “disrupt psychological adaptations of impulse control,” which may lead to a “higher rate of criminality” (p. 58). They state, “[l]ead may account for certain cases of rape, just as mutations may” (p. 58).
Of course, in our new gay military, the male circumvents the [politically unprotected] male’s choice, too.
No lesser evolutionary authority than William Provine pointed out that atheism and evolution equals zero morality or ethics:
“Naturalistic evolution has clear consequences that Charles Darwin understood perfectly. 1) No gods worth having exist; 2) no life after death exists; 3) no ultimate foundation for ethics exists; 4) no ultimate meaning in life exists; and 5) human free will is nonexistent.”
So the facts are (according to secular humanist liberal Democrats) that: 1) there is no God and that therefore 2) no ultimate foundation for ethics exists which means that 3) Human rape arises from men’s evolved machinery. and of course 4) the facts may change tomorrow when liberals say they changed 5) in order to suit liberals. Oh, and 6) people vote “Democrat” because they are mindless and soulless meat puppets devoid of anything resembling free will.
And you seriously wonder why sexual assaults are flourishing in the age of Obama???
I just wonder when Newsweek will rightly put Obama on the cover as “the first buttrape president.” I know that’s a truly crude term, but as ObamaCare rears its massively intrusive governmental ding dong and starts pushing it up their rears, that’s precisely how a lot of people who AREN’T either in the military or the prison system will feel…
