Right Wing Watch brings us today’s Matt Barber bigot eruption – Liberty Counsel: DADT Keeps “Moral Perverts” Out Of The Armed Services. The sad fact is in his desperation to make an argument to keep DADT in place, he makes an ass out of himself, using the talk that Wikileaks-leaker Bradly Manning is gay, which of course says, um, nothing about the merits of the discriminatory DADT.
The topic came up in the Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom Radio” program today as Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed the issue and cited a report from the 1950s claiming that gays were “moral perverts” and therefore a national security risk:
Staver: According to news reports, Manning decided to turn traitor after a fight with his boyfriend, which somehow motivated him to send hundreds of thousands of confidential documents to WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange, who’s alleged also by some to be gay.
But at any rate, if you go back and look at this, go back to the reports of the 1950s when a series of Senate committee reports concluded that “moral perverts are bad national security risks because of the susceptibility to blackmail” and that homosexuals are “vulnerable to interrogation by a skilled questioner” due to emotional instability or moral weakness.
And that comes from The Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, October 1, 2001. So this is not some ancient document, but it looks back at what happened in the 1950s with regards to why homosexuality was automatic excluder for someone in a national security position.
Barber: This shows specifically why, this highlights why we have the policy in place that seeks to keep sexual deviancy out of the ranks of the armed services.
