Republican Senators Introduce Bill to Ban Pentagon Funding of Drag Queen Performances

( – It would seem logical that the primary focus of the Pentagon is to protect the security of the country and to provide and co-ordinate US military forces in accordance with that goal.

However, there is another focus that appears to be distracting the military from it’s primary mission. It has been spending time and money on facilitating drag queen performances, promoting drag queens to positions of military influence, and making sure that every branch of the military has its own drag queen story hour program.

Not everyone is happy. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) have introduced a bill that would ban the Pentagon from allocating taxpayer funds towards drag queen performances or using facilities funded by the taxpayer to host them.

The bill is also co-sponsored by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), and Senator Ted Budd (R-NC). It comes after increasing levels of concern over the aggressive pushing of LGBTQIA+ ideology in all branches of the military.

Recently, Joshua Kelley, an active-duty serviceman who performs as a drag queen under the name Harpy Daniels, was asked by the Navy to help with its recruiting program as a Navy Digital Ambassador. Apparently, it is considered more important to pander to the pronoun requirements of the LGBTQIA+ community than it is to train military personnel to overcome the enemy.

Senator Marco Rubio said in a statement: “The Department of Defense needs to get its priorities straight. It should not be the job of Congress to enact legislation telling it to prioritize taxpayer funding on maintaining battlefield readiness.”

Senator Steve Daines echoed Rubio’s sentiments, highlighting the threat to national security caused by allowing the influence of left-wing gender ideology to misallocate resources in this way. Both senators agreed that the gross misuse of taxpayer funds should cease with immediate effect.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) made a similar argument earlier this month, noting that the purpose of the military is to defend the country. It needs to train men and women for war, rather than put any funds behind a moving target of gender.
