The origins of homosexuality revealed

There is a tendency among some people to associate homosexuality with Western liberalism and decadence. Two years ago an Alabama sheriff, Mac Holcomb, attracted a bit of attention for pining for the good old days when gays knew their place. Mike Signorile later interviewed him on the radio, where they had this exchange:
Holcomb: If a dog, a male dog, tried this with another male dog, he would probably lose a vital organ.
Signorile: Don't you believe that-- First of all, there are male dogs who do that with one another. There are gay dogs. There are -- Homosexuality exists throughout the animal kingdom.
Holcomb: You guys never got dogs in New York we got down here, cause our Southern dogs don't -- male dogs don't do that to one another.

"Maybe your liberal New York dogs commit homosexual acts, but our good old Southern dogs don't do that sort of thing."

Similarly, homosexuality is ascribed to capitalism:
[A] senior Maoist leader, Dev Gurung - former commander of the Maoist militia in the western part of Nepal, and now minister of Local Government - was quoted in December in the New Delhi, India-based daily The Asian Age as proclaiming, "Under Soviet rule there were no homosexuals in the Soviet Union. Now that they are moving towards capitalism, homosexuals may have arisen there as well. So homosexuality is a product of capitalism. Under socialism this kind of problem doesn't exist."

There are those who claim that homosexuality is a Western export: "countries such as China often represent homosexuality as a pernicious Western influence", and "President Mugabe's [of Zimbabwe] homophobia ... derives from a related suggestion that homosexuality is a European export to which Zimbabweans occasionally succumb in moments of weakness." It is generally claimed that homosexuality simply doesn't exist in Africa, or Asia. As Helen Zia writes in "Where the Queer Zone Meets the Asian Zone",
Then there are the the Asian politicians who claim that homosexuality doesn't exist in Japan, China or the entire continent of Asia, as Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe continues to say of Africa.

And finally, the truth comes out--the Pentagon has confirmed that they entertained ideas about creating a bomb to turn people gay.
A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.

Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called "Gay Bomb."

Edward Hammond, of Berkeley's Sunshine Project, had used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a copy of the proposal from the Air Force's Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.

As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."

The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon.

"The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soldiers to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviewing the documents.

More on that here.

This weapon is terrifying in its implications. The destructive power of homosexuality is well known, and men (and women) have long pondered how to harness homosexuality for their own purposes. If the United States developed a way to spread gayness to other countries, we could sit back and wait for natural disasters to wipe those countries off the map.

In fact, that's what we ought to do: abolish "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", and instead implement special, Negro-only gay-only units of the military, possibly covert-ops units. We stick a couple of those in Iraq and bam, God will smite that nation before you can say "sodomy!"
