This week has been disastrous for President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and the gays-in-the-military agenda. Their efforts to change American culture remain in freefall â€“ and now they must do damage control over Eric Massa, the lecher who enjoys "tickling" his congressional aides.
The drama-rama surrounding Massa has shown the American people first hand why lifting the ban on gays in the military is a bad idea.
The ex-Congressman from New York is now the new poster child for upholding the 1993 law banning gays and lesbians from serving in the military. His former Navy colleagues are coming out of hiding to expose his decades-long habit of trying to seduce his subordinates â€“ known as "snorkeling" in the Navy.
Massa resigned from Congress on Monday to avoid undergoing a thorough investigation into his gay predatory activities against his subordinates. What Massa refers to as "tickling" of at least three males is more perverse than he admits.
As the public learns more about Massa's aggressive homosexual advances toward his subordinates, his former Navy colleagues are going public with lurid tales of his gay exploits aboard Naval vessels.
One of those Navy colleagues is Peter Clarke, who says Massa was notorious for making unwanted sexual advances on his subordinates. Massa was known for offering to give his shipmates "Massa Massages."
Massa's shipmates were afraid of turning him in for fear of retaliation. If that was the case when gays, bisexuals and transgenders were not allowed to serve openly, what will happen if the ban is lifted? Surely we will see a flood "tickle" attacks in foxholes and showers. Another shipmate is Ron Moss who says he was groped by Massa on board the U.S. Jouett in 1990. According to Moss, "I was awakened when a senior officer, Lt. Commander Massa, seemed to be groping me. (I was a lieutenant at the time.) I believe he may have been drinking. I shouted at him and he left. I mentioned the incident to several other officers. I did not officially report it."
Navy shipmate Tom Maxfield was also sexually assaulted by Massa. He and Massa shared a state room together. Maxfield woke up one night to see Massa undoing his pants in an effort to "snorkel" him.
Massa's shipmates were afraid of turning him in for fear of retaliation. According to Moss, "He was a cocky guy, competent, but he saw himself as a future admiral. It doesn't surprise me that he wound up in Congress."
Here is a clear case of a gay sexual predator assaulting his subordinates in the Navy and getting away with it. Fear of reprisal kept his victims from reporting him.
If the Congress overturns the 1993 law banning gays and lesbians from openly serving in the military, lechers like Massa will have free reign to aggressively stalk and conquer young subordinates.
Does Congress really want to legalize the predatory behaviors of such men? Overturning the 1993 law will give gays and lesbians a free hunting license to go after young soldiers, sailors and Marines. Men like Massa will then multiply in the Armed Forces â€“ undermining unit cohesion and military readiness. http://worthreading.ning.com/profiles/blogs/poster-boy-for-dont-ask-dont
