DADT Continues to be Object of Ridicule

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart weighed in with an amusing piece on the potential repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. At first we bristled at the lively ageist remarks starting at the 4:15 mark, and then we got the joke. It’s an astute comparison.

We’d be laughing more, were it not for the pain and sorrow this policy has caused over the last 16 years.

Absurdity of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

We love The Onion! We can’t think of a better way–lighthearted and biting at the same time–to start a discussion on what it would mean for us to repeal DADT, the policy that bars lesbian and gay people from serving in the U.S. military.
