Group Warns That 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Repeal Will Lead To A Contamination Of 'Gay Blood'

Yesterday, we had the chance to enjoy the way the arguments in favor of maintaining the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy were growing more and more psychotic as the repeal process seemed to be gaining steam.

We had the "everyone is going to get sexually assaulted" argument -- which was weird -- and the "Hitler surrounded himself with gay soldiers because they 'knew no limits'" argument, which was even weirder. But had we hit rock bottom yet? No we hadn't. But that's only because we didn't hear about this one until a few hours later.


Today, right-wing hate-monger Cliff Kincaid's group America's Survival launched a repulsive fear campaign against repeal, warning that "disease-tainted gay blood threatens our troops." The group's abhorrent video -- and the 60 page report that accompanies it -- present ludicrous stereotypes of gay men and women, going so far as to claim that "open and active homosexuals into the U.S. military could very well result in the spreading of deadly HIV-tainted blood throughout the ranks"

That's right: we have achieved "precious bodily fluids" paranoia, which is one of my favorites!
