One Man Moonbattery

You won't escape the relentless and deliberate homosexualization of America without turning off your television.
The Discovery Channel has been running a "reality" series called "One Man Army," in which contestants must undergo challenges similar to special forces training. At last, an alternative to American Idol and metrosexual sit-coms, something made for men, right? Sure: until the contest is won by Jeffrey, the only guy with no military or law enforcement experience, who then piteously bleats that he couldn't join the military because he's a homosexual.
Needless to say, even before the insane repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell, Jeffrey could have joined the Armed Forces; he just would have been asked not to make too much of a pageant of his predilection for depravity. Being noisily homosexual didn't keep Wikileaks traitor Bradley Manning out of the Army.
The moonbattery is as subtle as a two-by-four across the forehead. Even the New York Times acknowledged it:
The best propaganda doesn't tip its hand. Want to make a show that engenders respect and sympathy for the armed forces without complications? Take it out of the theater of war.
[…One Man Army] is part of the passive militarization of popular culture: not the lionizing of active-duty soldiers that would come directly from the armed services, but rather using people with military and paramilitary backgrounds as a casting pool for sympathetic characters.
[…The revelation that Jeffrey is light in the loafers] is an implicit rebuke to the military that kept him at arm's length. Maybe it's an inconvenient truth, or maybe it's propaganda of a different sort.
The Slimes is right about good propaganda not tipping its hand. If people knew in advance that the point was to have a homosexual win so he could spew lefty politics, who would sit through it?
On a tip from Troy.
