The Navy's Message
In relieving (the somewhat ironically named) Captain Owen Honors as commander of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, the Obama administration has sent the navy, in fact the whole military a message that can not be misconstrued. The production of some parody videos was undeniably uncouth, but for an organization charged with dropping laser-guided bombs to blow terrorists to smithereens, decorum is not the utmost virtue. Captain Honors' real offense is that he included homosexuals in the pejorative display and they are the new sacred cows of the politically-correct, all-inclusive United States military. If the then executive officer had included everything but gays in the video, he might still have a career to look forward to in the military, but the deviants who were formerly drummed out now seem to be running the show at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, which redounds across the Pentagon, and like a social disease, through the United States military. Officers should realize Captain Honors was cashiered as one NBC report termed the video for "gay bashing".
