Soldiers Dress in Drag While Ukraine is Invaded

President Obama looks impotent to the world. When do you think Vladimir Putin knew he could invade Ukraine? It wasn’t a spur of the moment thing. He was waiting for the right opportunity. I think it happened when President Obama opened the military to homosexuals.

Travis J. Tritten writing in Stars and Stripes gives us an inside look of what this “Gay Man’s Army” has become as soldiers dress in drag:

“Since the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, U.S. military bases have hosted a gay marriage ceremonies and a potluck gatherings. But on Saturday, servicemembers here [on Kadena Air Base, Okinawa] may have been the first to take to the stage and perform as drag queens on a military installation in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender troops.

“Drag queens and drag kings, to be precise.

“Six servicemembers — gay, lesbian and straight — donned heavy makeup to dance and lip sync songs such as ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ for a raucous capacity crowd at the Rocker NCO Club at Kadena Air Base. The event was a fundraiser for the recently formed Okinawa chapter of OutServe-SLDN, which is the largest nonprofit advocate for the military’s LGBT community.

“’We didn’t think there was much of a desire for an event like this on the island but it has actually blown up,’ said Navy Lt. Marissa Greene, co-chapter leader of OutServe Okinawa.

“Greene said she had hoped to sell about 75 tickets to fund some future support activities for the group, which was formed last summer and still ‘starting from scratch.’ The event was approved as a ‘variety show’ by Kadena’s 18th Wing through the same process as other on-base fundraisers.”
