The out-of-the-mainstream media has collaboratively kept the focus on the sex criminal, Julian Assange, and off the guy who has committed actual treason, the homosexual soldier Bradley Manning, who sold out his country in what may turn out to be fit of gay pique.
Manning was, at a minimum, seriously confused about his sexuality, and at worst, launched the WikiLeaks campaign to strike back at the military for its “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which he vehemently opposed.
Regardless, he is a one-man argument for keeping open homosexuals from serving in the military in the first place. If the 1993 law – which flatly prohibits homosexuals from a place in the armed services – had been followed, there would be no PFC Bradley Manning and no WikiLeaks.
Manning was quite open about his flirtation with all manner of sexual orientations on social networking sites, evidence the military could not use to discharge him because of inane rules established under DADT.
DADT allows a soldier to serve as long as he keeps his sexual proclivities a secret. Since the law prohibits homosexual service, period, DADT was established as a way for homosexuals to break federal law as long as they didn’t tell anybody they were breaking the law.
The absurdity of this is obvious. You want to counterfeit U.S. currency? Fine, we’re okay with it as long as you don’t tell us you’re doing it.
And now we discover today that the gay caballero has released to Muslim terrorists a veritable high-value target list of worldwide installations that are the most “critical” to the security of the United States.
The list includes factories, fuel companies, undersea cables, communication hubs, pipelines, ports and a host of other “key resources.”
According to MSNBC, these are “systems and assets, whether physical or virtual, so vital to the United States the incapacitation or destruction of such systems and assets would have a debilitating impact on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination of those matters.”
If this is not a treasonable offense which merits the death penalty, nothing is. The bottomless depth of Manning’s perfidy is growing darker by the day.
Gen. Washington said of Benedict Arnold’s betrayal that it was “treason of the blackest dye.” Well, Bradley Manning is running a close second, and should meet his end at the end of a rope or its functional equivalent.
It’s no wonder that the Old Media rarely if ever even references Manning any more. And I believe it is for one simple reason: Manning singlehandedly torpedoes their argument that homosexuals can be allowed to serve in our military without consequence.
