Air Force Commander on LGBT Pride: “Exactly What We Need”

Luke Air Force Base held a homosexual/transgender “pride” event last week. The base’s commander, BGen Scott Pleus, said

“This is exactly what we needed here today.”

The article notes that no one had heard “any negative feedback and did not expect criticism.”  Since “negative feedback” and “criticism” have been met by official sanction in the military, silence should not be unexpected.  The interesting assumption, though, is that silence confers agreement.
