Joseph Farah writes in his Dec. 6 WorldNetDaily column:
This may sound like a strange idea coming from someone who loves and respects the U.S. military.
It’s time to deny it our sons and daughters and our grandchildren. For those young enough to serve, it’s time to deny it yourselves. It’s time to boycott the U.S. military.
What am I talking about? Have I completely flipped my lid? Who will protect the nation from foreign enemies in these turbulent times without manpower?
Let me begin with something that put me over the edge: When foreign-serving U.S. military personnel were systematically denied by the Barack Obama administration the right to vote in the 2012 presidential election, I decided I would never encourage any son, daughter or friend of mine to enlist voluntarily in the U.S. military again – at least during the next four years.
That was a disgusting, self-serving and deliberate political act by a White House hell-bent to maintain power by hook or by crook. And it denied those risking their lives for their country the sacrosanct right to participate in our electoral system.
That was it for me.
Farah provides no evidence that "foreign-serving U.S. military personnel were systematically denied by the Barack Obama administration the right to vote in the 2012 presidential election." Indeed, FactCheck.org has debunked the idea that Obama tried to curb early military voting and discredited a claim that delayed military ballots would have swung the vote for Mitt Romney as coming from a parody blog.
But Farah is not done ranting, because he hates Obama so, so much:
I don’t want to see the best and the brightest of this generation sacrificed at the altar of political correctness, promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East, same-sex marriages at West Point, women in combat, interventionism all over the globe without regard to national security interests or even humanitarian reasons.
It’s time to just say no to Obama playing God with our sons and daughters.
He demonstrated he has no commitment even to saving the lives of Americans under threat in Libya. That should be the central purpose of the U.S. military.
He clearly doesn’t recognize the gravest threats to our country – insolvency and global jihad. In fact, he seems to do everything in his power to foster both.
As a parent, would you encourage your children to work for a boss who is corrupt and dangerous?
I wouldn’t. And I won’t.
