The War Against DADT Repeal

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


I’m not sure how seriously to take this, but Marcy Wheeler retweets this from petulantsage:

Every person I’ve talked to over the past 48 hours, who works for a 3 & 4-star agrees: it’s open warfare. USMC and AF will kill repeal.

No surprise, I guess. The Marine Corps (too red-blooded for gays) and the Air Force (too evangelical Christian for gays) have always been the most opposed to repeal of DADT. We’ll see who wins the war shortly.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
