Army Secretary John McHugh Cancels Commencement Speech Over Fear Of … Buttons

Army Secretary John McHugh, who says he’s ready to see DADT repealed, was all set to give the commencement address SUNY Oswego, the upstate New York university. And then you fags had to threaten a protest during the ceremony, and like an ill-educated teenager, he’s pulled out.

Supposedly it’s because he doesn’t want to deal with your disruptions. Or the flair you were going to wear!

Some faculty, staff and students planned to wear buttons supporting repeal of the law that prohibits gays from serving openly in the military, and a few students planned a protest.

At the very least, please limit your exercising of First Amendment rights to below the torso, where McHugh won’t be able to see from his podium perch. For example, “I’m not asking, I’m telling!” belt buckles would be more appropriate. Or perhaps the acronym “DADT” inside a circle with a line through it on a sock, perhaps.
