US Military Going To The Dogs

Celebrate Pup Pride with the Armed Forces! Gay officers pretend to be canines for sadomasochistic sex games
Screen Shot 2022-12-11 at 12.28.14 PM

What the hell is wrong with the culture of the US military? Last week, an anonymous Army officer -- a colonel! -- retired, and posted to Twitter images of himself and his male lover, a junior officer in the Armed Forces, wearing leather dog masks. They are gay kinksters who are into sadomasochistic "pup play"

Well, he has been outed. Note that the person who posted this got his name wrong: it's "Connelly," not "Donnelly":

If you have the stomach, click that tweet and read the long thread, with lots and lots of images. If you want to know more about the "pup play" scene, here's a Men's Health article explaining it. Basically, it's for gay men who get off dressing up and acting like dogs, and having sex with each other while pretending to be canines. Real sane stuff there.

I swear, I cannot understand why the military puts up with this perversion in its ranks. I honestly thought character mattered. Did the military know what these weirdos were doing? How many others in uniform do this stuff? How many normal men would want to go into a military where perverts like this serve, and are tolerated? When our New Woke Military celebrates Pride, do they mean Pup Pride too? If not, why not? What are the boundaries for the military in tolerating this filth?

Seriously, though, what happened to respect for the uniform? What happened to respect, period? What happened to honor? We are in so much trouble in this country.

If you see somebody put a half a bottle of ketchup on top of a burger, the natural conclusion is he doesn't like hamburger very much. No?

Still less shame visited on his service than Stewart Rhodes, on whom you've been quiet.

    Rhodes was honorably discharged after two years 7 months active service. He was not active duty on Jan 6th, but nice try
    "But a copy of his Army retirement paperwork reviewed by Military.com reveals previously undisclosed details about Rhodes' career that show a soldier who served quietly and relatively unremarkably, despite the central role his military career plays in the fabric of the Oath Keepers. He was honorably separated from the Army after serving two years and seven months on active duty, leaving at the rank of specialist with a "temporary" physical disability, according to the document."

Did the US Army sponsor or approve of this? No. This individual is retired. He is military, past-tense. What percentage of the military is 'woke'? It's likely pretty small. As a retiree from a family who has put troops in boots since the Revolution - two of my children included - and as someone whose volunteer service, post-retirement, involves regular, direct contact with reserve component units, I can say that I've seen none of the type of thing that Mr. Dreher's 'parade of horribles' would have credulous readers believe is happening. Mr. Dreher never served a single day in uniform; he does not know, first-hand, anything about the military. He now resides in Hungary, and is likely not going to become any better acquainted with our armed forces while living there.
Ask yourself: Did you see any cadets or midshipmen wearing dog masks or sporting bondage gear at yesterday's Army-Navy game? No. Do you see this type of thing regularly when dealing with the military community? probably not. it would be better for all concerned if facts and figures took the place of cherry-picked stories that push a narrative from a source who lacks credibility. it's because of the degeneration of TAC from the standards of the Buchanan-Taki era to what I've been reading recently that I, a charter subscriber, cancelled my subscription last week.

    You are living in an era that's past. The military leadership has gone Woke and doesn't disapprove. After all, our soldiers who were scandalized by our warlord Afghan allies chaining young boys to their beds for sex were punished when they intervened, by the brass who have no problem with it.

    This is not your father's military. Surely those whose families served will not themselves be participating. But the transformation to embrace this successor ideology mandated by civilian and military leadership is why recruitment is now failing from those families most likely to formerly enlist.

    What are we fighting for?

    The leadership has gone barking mad.

      If I am living in the past, can you cite data - facts and figures - to support your claim? One retired colonel doesn't constitute the military's collective leadership. I object to the 'parade of horribles' - examples that may well not represent the norm - taking the place of facts and figures. It's this kind of thinking that damages conservative credibility. If the military's 'gone woke' then there should be official Army/Navy/USAF press releases and publications to that effect, survey data, etc., and not just one retiree and his dog mask.
      If he had on a MAGA hat, would you believe a left-wing story about how the Army is over-run with Trump supporters?

        General Milley and Secretary Austin mandated a stand down this past year to have service members re-educated with Kenji's Critical Race Theory propaganda. I'd guess your experience isn't up to date if you're not aware of these developments.

    What uniform is he wearing? It ought to invoke the same emotion in you that seeing Father Martin with his rainbow stole does in me: that is to say, rage and disgust.

        Where is the condemnation?

        It follows the same arc - toleration, celebration and ultimately participation. Surely you have seen the recruitment advertisements that invite deviance - equal opportunity and equity for those involved in these "lifestyles."

          I was last in front of troops in formation nine days ago and saw no sign of this type of behavior. I subscribe to three professional military journals and have never seen an article on LGTBQ issues. I stay on post occasionally when traveling and have never encountered any of this type of thing. That doesn't mean it's not happening, but I see no pattern of evidence to support Mr. Dreher's assertions.
          Finally - my last word on the subject - retirees may only wear the uniform on occasions of ceremony and for other, strictly limited purposes. No one, active, reserve or retired, may bring discredit upon the uniform. Mr. Dreher should send all the evidence he has to the Secretary of the Army concerning a violation of AR 670-1, Ch. 23 (https://www.ar670.com/2018/12/21/wear-of-the-uniform-by-retired-personnel/ )
          The Army's response should settle the matter.

          oh stop being obtuse do you honestly think that someone involved in this behavior would show up in formation wearing a leather dog mask? as for your professional military journals not publishing about LGBTQ issues I dont doubt it but articles have been written about military LGBTQ. I suggest you do a internet search using your search engine of choice for the following phrase "military lgbtq" and you'll see millions of hits including this one

    apparently you are unaware that this not openly shown. Also the Colonel had a relationship with a junior officer aka fraternization. maybe you should read the twitter thread to become fully informed rather than basing uninformed comments on what Rod wrote
