When it comes to social issues, Fox News is usually the last to come around.
Fox News has come around.
Most of the network’s coverage of gays in the military has been shockingly progressive. Which it should be, becauseâ€”truth be toldâ€”no arguments remain for keeping gay and lesbians from serving, and serving without fear. Truth is, our military has been overextended for years, and we need more soldiers. It shouldn’t matter if someone is gay, straight, Christian, Jewish, tall short, smart, dumbâ€”if you wanna serve, we’ll find a spot for you.
The Far Right (the final opponents) continue to cite the ol’ “It’ll upset too many people” and “soldiers will be upset.” These are the exact same lines used when it came to integrating the armed forces.
I find the above video to be extraordinary, in that it’s an older white conservative male appearing on Fox to damn Don’t Ask Don’t Tell as a failed policy.
