Decorated, 18-year-vet F-15 Fighter Pilot, Victor Fehrenbach, is being thrown out of the airforce for being gay, two years before he can retire with a full pension:
Please watch that video. Everyone needs to watch it. This guy is amazing. He’s saved American lives. We trained him at the cost of $25 million to this country — and he clearly made good use of it. Now, we’re getting rid of this war hero, two years before he could retire with dignity and with the hero’s welcome he deserves, because he’s a sexual minority. WTF?
Over at my blog, I called this Obama’s violence on gay people. It has me so angry I’m ready to riot on the streets. It’s within Obama’s power to suspend DADT and place a moratorium until Congress fixes this law. He promised to end DADT early and often on the campaign trail — and now he’s backtracking a mile a minute.
An entire generation of gay people have been waiting for this policy to be fixed. Lives are being destroyed – and America is being made less safe: Our military has thrown out over ten thousand qualified, well-trained people — at the cost of who knows how many billions in lost training and talent – because of policies made in bigotry. When will this stop? Why won’t President Obama keep his promise?
