Queering Australian Defences: Homo Promo in the Army

Defence Minister must dump Army’s gay cuff-links

It’s embarrassing.

It’s divisive.

It’s a disgrace.

And it’s a complete waste of your tax dollars.

Queering Australian Defences.  Unleashed by  former Labor Minister for Defence, Stephen Smith.

Rainbow-encrusted cuff-links for homosexual soldiers are issued free of charge, even though they are not part of any uniform (yet).

Army Reserve Major, Bernard Gaynor, has called on the Minister for Defence, Senator David Johnston, to halt the Australian Army’s plan to issue cuff-links and lapel pins that place the Rising Sun badge on a rainbow backdrop – the symbol of LGBTI political activism.

“The Rising Sun badge is a symbol of the Australian Army and is loved and respected by Australians of all walks of life,” Mr Gaynor said.

“It is not appropriate for it to be abused and linked to any political cause.”

“The rainbow is used to promote LGBT political causes, including homosexual marriage. It is an insult to all current and former serving personnel for the Rising Sun to be linked with the political campaign for homosexual marriage.”

“As a serving member who has deployed on operations three times, I am deeply offended that the symbol of the Australian Army has been politicised in this fashion.”

“It is also an insult to the intelligence of all Australians that the Department of Defence is crying poor while wasting taxpayer dollars on jewellery to promote homosexuality.”

“The Department was used as a tool of radical social change by the former Labor government. The new Abbott government must end this abuse immediately.”

Who voted for this rubbish?

 Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon did a  post-graduate studies course at the International Lenin School in Moscow in the mid-1970s. The Greens Senator has refused to confirm or deny that she did a course in Moscow during the time of Leonid Brezhnev’s communist dictatorship.


The Department of Defence has today shown exactly how hypocritical it is. On the one hand it’s complaining that it doesn’t get its hands on enough of the taxpayer dollar. And on the other, it’s producing rainbow-encrusted cuff-links for homosexual soldiers.

And they are issued free of charge, even though they are not part of any uniform (yet).

It’s all part of the process of gaying the Army, unleashed by the former Labor Minister for Defence, Stephen Smith.

In fact, the Army is so interested in homosexuality that its latest tri-annual journal was devoted to analysing the role of homosexual culture in Australia’s military. In contrast, over the last decade this periodical has featured well over 300 articles but just a single one has explored the influence of Islamic thought on the adversaries Aussie Diggers have faced in two wars.

And that, right there, highlights the fundamental problem within the Department of Defence: it is more interested in social change than waging war.

The dearth of Islamic discussion in the Army Journal might be little short of criminal oversight, especially as it was written in this journal way back in 2005 that Western post-modern education prefers to study Islam without the sword and that “Middle Eastern religious networks are not well understood in Western culture.”

But its recent focus on promoting homosexuality within the ranks is purely and simply nothing more than radical, socially-progressive military propaganda.

Defence has been hijacked by activists who are not interested in fighting and defeating an enemy. Instead, they are focused on using Defence to promote their grotesque social agenda. That’s why the Army can’t tell you who the enemy is in Afghanistan and places Islam above criticism. But it can tell you that it encourages homosexual political activism and uniformed support of those who mock Christianity in Australia.

The Army’s decision to issue gay cuff-links and lapel pins to homosexual soldiers is the latest manifestation of this. And it’s occurring even though Defence’s own policy documents state that inappropriate advocacy of a particular sexual orientation is sexual harassment.

If there is one thing that inappropriately advocates a particular sexual orientation, it’s issuing jewellery to promote homosexuality – a concept that makes normal Australians shudder. (Pickering)

  1. @harbidoll,

    “their hate for religion & the “old ways” is greater than their fear of their enemies.”

    Agree with your statement.

    It is far easier to hate what one knows-childish rebellion? For them religion and the old ways are both very real. As is their hate for the the imperialistic military and big bad police.

    Whilst their very real enemies are abstract and distant.
