When Andrew informed Ramode that he is gay, and believed that the DADT policy was wrong, the two engaged in a three-day email exchange that included statements by Ramode, in her official capacity as a recruiter, that boggle the mind. (Jersey Journal):"GO BACK TO AFRICA AND DO YOUR GAY VOODOO LIMBO TANGO AND WANGO DANCE AND JUMP AROUND AND PRANCE AND RUN ALL OVER THE PLACE HALF NAKED THERE."– U.S. Army recruiter Sgt. Marcia Ramode, using her military email address to respond to
Jersey City resident Corey Andrew, after Ramode learned Andrew was gay.
This from a person acting as a representative of the US armed forces. This following on the comments of General Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we
should not condone immoral acts.
So what is the deeper result, deeper affect?
What does the top man in the military freely spouting like this say? What about when recruiters are open and proudly passionate about this hatred and bigotry?
Well, remember what happen when those academy kids were watching 24? Remember the military officials zealously trying to get in to talk with the shows producers? The hope that they could convince them to change the positive way it always shows torture? The trouble as the military kids were convinvced by it that torture was cool and effective?
Well, now go back and consider when the leadership and PR people of spout bigotry so openly. What does that say to the rank and file?
Doesn't make me feel good in the least.
