Scott Horton Interviews Jeremy Sapienza
Jeremy Sapienza, Senior Editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” and the new era of gays openly serving in the military; why acquiring the privilege of killing foreign civilians and staffing the US empire is not a victory for civil liberties; why we should expect that poor, picked-on, isolated gay youth will be filling the ranks, not the Hollywood liberals who fought against DADT; and how gays can slough off the stigma of “otherness” if they enlist, since they “don’t have to be straight, as long as they shoot straight.”
