The Defence Conservative Action Network is progressing full steam ahead. DEFCAN launched its webpage last week and you can visit it by clicking here.
Already soldiers are coming forward with disturbing stories of discrimination.
In the last week there have been reports that soldiers have been told that they cannot wear Christian items, such as a Crucifix, while homosexual members have been encouraged to wear emblems that display their political flag, the rainbow.
And others have reported that they have been threatened with dismissal for honestly answering questions about their views on contentious decisions, such as the employment of women in front line combat roles.
These reports deserve further investigation and they highlight the pressing need for the establishment of the Defence Conservative Action Network.
If you are a Defence member and wish to raise concerns about discrimination against conservative or Christian members, please go to the DEFCAN webpage and send through any information you wish to highlight. If you want to highlight the problems that radical social policy change is having on Defence capability, DEFCAN is ready to listen and then take action on your behalf.
DEFCAN is also interested in speaking to Defence members who are unhappy with the ADF’s deliberate support for and participation in the deeply offensive, highly political and extremely divisive Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. If you would like to help restore public confidence in the ADF’s political impartiality and are offended that the proud uniforms of the Navy, Army and Air Force are embarrassingly paraded down Oxford Street, please let DEFCAN know.
DEFCAN understands exactly how perilous it is for Defence members to raise their concerns in the current intolerant and politically correct ADF environment. DEFCAN will not release your name without permission but it needs to speak to all concerned Defence members so that a robust, strong and coherent strategy is devised to restore integrity to decision making within the ADF.
Finally, if you would like to have your say about recent controversial policy decisions taken by the ADF, DEFCAN also has a short two minute survey.
Already hundreds of responses have been received and the results are coming in loud and clear:
- 82% do not support the employment of women in front line combat roles.
- 92% oppose ADF participation in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
- 70% believe that all ADF members should be able to attend political and social events that they support in uniform if the ADF continues to participate in the Mardi Gras .
- 96% oppose the ADF’s decision to provide free sex-change surgery for soldiers.
- 87% are concerned about ongoing Islamic immigration while the ADF is at war with those who fight for Islamic beliefs.
- 95% believe that the risk of Islamic violence in Australia will rise over the next decade.
- 97% believe that it is wrong for the ADF to sack Defence members for their conservative political views and traditional Christian beliefs.
- 87% believe that it is inappropriate that some senior officers now think that Defence policy allows vilification of Christianity.
- 70% believe that ADF members will be treated unfavourably if they do not hold politically correct views on front line combat roles for women, homosexuality, sex-change operations or Islam.
- Only 15% of people believe that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been successful.
The ADF’s hierarchy have gone to great lengths recently to give the impression that they are listening to the public and serving members when it comes to its social policy decisions and direction. These results blow that propaganda out of the water.
The ADF hierachy have not been listening to anyone but the radical revolutionaries who seek to use Defence to force unwanted social change on Australian society. It’s time the hierachy started listening to the majority.
