If the guy referenced in the CNN block of text below was against the favored position, the political-military complex would crush him like a grape. Still, that wouldn’t happen until the thought police tazered him unmercifully with a healthy application of career waterboarding. 

In this case, expect DoD crickets. 

As mentioned, from CNN:

The top enlisted adviser for U.S. forces in Afghanistan said on Friday that he believes the troops are ready for a repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and that those who oppose ending the policy should leave the military.

"If there are people who cannot deal with the change, then they’re going to have to do what’s best for their troops and best for the organization and best for the military service and exit the military service, so that we can move forward – if that’s the way that we have to go," Command Sergeant Major Marvin Hill told ‘Washington Watch’ host and CNN contributor Roland Martin in an interview that will air Sunday on TV One Cable.

In the post-McChrystal environment, does anyone think this guy would have been allowed to make a TV appearance were he repeating anything other than the institutionally approved talking points?  Of course not.  Maybe he’s hoping to make E-10.

Consistent with Sergeant Major Hill’s take, perhaps the deportation thought police should help those who don’t know what’s best for America (that is, those holding unapproved thinking, values, and morality) leave the country so the nation can move forward.  Effectively, Hill is saying homosexuals have a right to serve but that those who don’t feel the same way don’t have the same right.

It brings to mind the end of Apocalypse Now. 

Kurtz: I expected someone like you. What did you expect? Are you an assassin?

Willard: I’m a soldier.

Kurtz: You’re neither. You’re an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks, to collect a bill.

We’ll also edit Col Kurtz’s dialog from “The horror…the horror” to ”the hypocrisy…the hypocrisy.”
