Don't ask, don't tell and integrity

My dad’s facebook status last night.

How come we don’t hear anything any more about doing away with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? Wasn’t that supposed to signal the end of democracy? Weren’t our soldiers supposed to quit in droves to the point where we could no longer defend our country? Wasn’t the end of DADT supposed to be the end of military cohesion? Wasn’t this the beginning of plummeting military recruitment? Weren’t there insurmountable reasons for this discrimination to go on forever?

Wasn’t ending DADT the biggest non-event you’ve never heard about since as soon as it was passed?

Where are all of the homophobes and fear mongers who whined about it now? Where is the bombast?
Where are the “I told you so’s”?
Did anybody hear just one single one of them have the integrity to admit they were wrong? Just one?

Gee…what a surprise.

Yup.

And when LGBT people can marry and not a damn thing changes, just like a damn thing hasn’t changed elsewhere when LGBT people have been allowed to marry, it will be the same.  No apologies.  No remorse for misery in the wake of legally enforced bigotry.

And certainly no admissions that even with the ear of god they were wrong the entire time.
