Gangs Before Gays

June 8, 2007 at 12:30 pm 4 comments

Something is seriously wrong when the military is eagerly accepting gang members while kicking out gay men and lesbians.

From Radar:

Lax enlistment standards have inadvertently allowed thousands of gang members to join the military, including young men who belong to the Crips, Bloods, Latin Kings, and various white supremacist groups. But no gang has infiltrated the armed forces as deeply as the Gangster Disciples, a 100,000-member Chicago-based syndicate that has been linked to an assortment of crimes ranging from murder to mortgage fraud.

As the Pentagon makes room for white supremacists, drug dealers and violent criminals, they continue to kick out well qualified men and women for being gay. And, the Republican presidential candidates see no problem with this.
