Sandy Rios, AFA Radio Host, Claims Gays Will Cause Possible Syria Strike To Fail


Huffington Post reports --"American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios is back in action, this claiming that the “homosexual takeover” of the American military since the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and women in the navy “getting pregnant in exponential numbers” will undermine the effectiveness of a military strike against Syria.

Unfortunately for Rios, studies have shown that there have been “no overall negative impact on military readiness, unit cohesion, recruitment, retention or morale.  “In fact, according to the Palm Center’s study, the repeal actually improved trust and cohesion among the troops.

Rios, who recently equated gay love to Ariel Castro’s rape and torture, is infamous for her attacks against gays.

Previously, Rios claimed that Americans can place blame on TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” for wide-spread acceptance of homosexuality, argued that nation-wide falling test scores are a result of gay-inclusive curricula and suggested that Hilary Clinton’s support of same-sex marriage could mean she’s secretly been a lesbian this whole time."


Food for thought:  As a former Naval officer, I served 20 years active duty before the DADT repeal.  Throughout my military career, I worked with obviously gay service men and women.  There were few occasions when a group of sailors’ sexual orientation could have seriously impacted the ship’s mission as well as the crew’s morale but the overall professionalism from the top down never allowed it to impede the ship’s mission.

Since advocating for veteran’s rights I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and advocating for Navy Lt Steve Crowston.  Steve is proudly serving our country as an openly gay white male.  Yet for years, Steve have encountered blatant civil rights and human rights violations and now suffers from PTSD after blowing the whistle on his superiors. 



On a different note, as an advocate for human rights, it’s tough to ignore the “uninvestigated” facts surrounding the enormous claims of military rape and sexual assault.  The possibility that a large percentage of the so-far, “26,000” claims could have possibly been committed by lesbians is unsettling. 

In 2004, while serving as a mid-grade officer assigned to a joint forces unit in Korea, I personally encountered a group of overly aggressive lesbian soldiers who played on the post recreational softball team.  They were known for “turning out” straight women and most of them had been reassigned from Fort Hood after uninvestigated allegations of “gang raping” young female soldiers in the barracks.   Of course I quit the team and avoided the women at all cost.  In my memoir, "Broken Silence", I further discuss my military challenges with lesbian soldiers.  The most horrific was during my incarceration at the Mira Mar brig.   If there's ever been a time God tested my spirit, it was then.

While visiting the Atlanta VA hospital, I’ve recently met a number of female veterans who claims to have been raped or sexually assaulted by lesbian soldiers while serving on active duty.  Their allegations were never investigated and each of them now suffers from PTSD.

Syneeda of the 26,000 veterans who claimed to have been raped during their time in service, were there any statistics on "women raping women"? If so, I would like to know the percentage. It's hard enough protecting our young girls from male predators, now we have to protect them from "butch" women! What has happened to our country?

You talk about the "Uninvestigated" facts of assaults. It's interesting that the Navy is still looking to un-investigate sexual assaults. Just recently, the superintendent of the Naval Academy, Vice Admiral Michael H. Miller, was trying to hinder an investigation because he was unhappy about the negative publicity that the case had received. A federal lawsuit was filed to force Miller to give up authority over the case. Miller is only doing what he has always done: cover-up. He previously denied everything, as the head of the Navy's legislative affairs. Bad news was bad then and Miller covered-up just about everything he could. Now his bad habits are getting him a federal lawsuit. But that won't stop him. He covered so well in legislative affairs that he got a third star and went to the Academy so that he could cover-up there. Apparently the Navy thought that Miller's predecessors weren't doing a very good job, with all the assaults, so they promoted Miller and sent him, with all of his cover-up expertise, to remedy the situation. He's working hard too, making it clear that he doesn't like all the attention, but it's not as easy when you're the one in the hot seat. You see, in Miller's previous assignment, he covered-up for other people. I hope he is next on the list of people fired for not dealing with assaults and then trying to cover it up.

Anon, As long as the military maintains legal jurisdiction over themselves, senior officers like Miller will continue to "cover-up" their criminal activity. Why do you think I was prosecuted, sent to prison and discharged without my pension?! My appeal was also denied by the Naval Board of Corrections, maybe because the evidence of the fraud I uncovered is linked to the highest Naval position at the Pentagon... These guys write the rules and strategy plans for war, to cover-up a whistleblower, sexual assault or rape case is child's play.
