As he seeks to become Commander in Chief, Ted Cruz goes on record telling falsehoods about LGBT people serving in the military.
Above is a recorded conference call with E.W Jackson, former GOP nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia, from YouTube . On it,Cruz defamed LGBT people who are now openly serving in the military.
Jackson states, ‘the military is beset with these new LGBT rules and I’m just hearing terrible things.’
Cruz elaborates, ‘You look at the military and one of the things we’ve seen is morale in the military under the Obama administration has plummeted, and it has plummeted because you have a commander-in-chief that doesn’t support our soldiers and sailors and airmen and marines, you have a commander-in-chief that doesn’t stand up against our enemies, that won’t even acknowledge or say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ and you have a commander-in-chief that treats the military as a cauldron for social experimentation.
‘He’s more interested in promoting homosexuality in the military than he is in defeating our enemy.
‘For example, the military is now focused on trying to promote transgendered [sic] soldiers.
‘The role of the military is not to be some left-wing social experiment.
This is a lie, of course. The official military study states: the repeal of DADT had had, ‘no overall negative impact on military readiness or its component dimensions, including cohesion, recruitment, retention, assaults, harassment, or morale. If anything, DADT repeal appears to have enhanced the military’s ability to pursue its mission.’
