New study, AFA and FRC were wrong about DADT repeal (big surprise there)

A new study shows what everyone already knows – Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal has had zero impact on military readiness.

Remember when the AFA, the group that every Republican presidential candidate met with, said that repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” would lead to Hitler?

The bottom line from what follows is this:

Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews. Gays in the military is an experiment that has been tried and found disastrously and tragically wanting. Maybe it’s time for Congress to learn a lesson from history.

Yeah, not so much. (It is funny how the folks who always invoke Hitler are the ones who seem to have more in common with him.)  As an aside, that’s some Holocaust revisionism that the AFA has been dabbling in for a while, trying to claim that it was actually gays who did the Holocaust.  Uh huh.  Again, who has more in common with the Nazis, us or them?  Show of hands, who uses pseudo-science to demonize minorities?  Come on, AFA, don’t be shy.

The FRC had this to add:

In about an hour, religious conservatives at the Family Research Council will hold a press conference with two retired military officials arguing that repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t tell “will increase sexual tension and even sexual assault in the military.”

Yeah, that didn’t happen either.

So when exactly will the media stop treating these hate groups as just another conservative organization?
