Nothing pisses me off like a Scot bringing discredit on our superior species.

After 20 years in the U.S. Army, I was forced to retire due to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that forbids gay men and women from serving openly in the US Military.

At the HRC (Human Rights Campaign) Equality Ball at the Mayflower Hotel, those of us who have been a vocal force against this damaging and unconstitutional policy are quite confident that our new Commander-in-Chief President Barack Obama will sign an Executive Order to abolish the “DADT” policy. Yes We Can!

Michael Patrick McManus, Lieutenant Colonel, US Army, Retired

And, more with shifting retirement dates. Don’t you just love a blog swarm?

While stationed in Frankfurt, Germany in 1986, then-Sergeant McManus served as Then-General Colin Powell’s personal bodyguard and interpreter; Sergeant McManus came out of the closet as a gay man in 1993 at a Memorial Weekend Requiem in San Francisco honoring the Unknown Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Soldiers

U.S. Army Captain Michael McManus revealed that General Colin Powell knew he was gay while McManus was serving as his personal bodyguard, and that it made no difference to the general. While stationed in Frankfurt, Germany in 1986, then Sergeant McManus served as Powell’s bodyguard and interpreter, and it was during that time that Sgt. McManus “came out” to him, confiding to him that he was gay.

According to McManus, Gen. Powell, who was at that time the commander of the U.S. Army Fifth Corps, replied, “What do you want me to do about it? As long as youare doing your job well, that does not matter to me. And you are doing an excellent job.”

Capt. McManus came out of the closet as a gay man publicly on Saturday May 29, 1993 at a Memorial Weekend Requiem in San Francisco honoring the Unknown Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Soldiers. The event was sponsored by the San Francisco Area chapter of the GLAAD and endorsed by many organizations, including the Alexander Hamilton Post of the American Legion.

McManus chose the San Francisco requiem event as the time to come out publicly because he “can no longer be a part of an organization that promotes and supports such blatant discrimination. It is time for people to realize that sexual orientation is a fundamental part of a person’s identity, just as being Asian or African-American.”

Capt. McManus [in 1993] planned on being vocal about the military’s gay and lesbian ban. He served in the U.S. Army Reserves and holds a top secret security clearance. Still fighting the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, Michael retired from the US Army in Feb. 2008 at the rank of LTC (Lieutenant Colonel).

You will notice that this no-talent asclown claims to be buddhist above. Well From the Great Donovan, we find this:

We have received information from the office of HH Dalai Lama that Tenzin Chophak ( Michael Mc Manus) did not have an Audience with His Holiness Dalai Lama on Oct.14 ’99, at which he said he had received the Tsogyal Dzambala Practice, to benefit Land of Medicine Buddha..

While at LMB we gave Tenzin Chophak more than adequate opportunity to improve his work perfomance and in no way was he mistreated.

With Love

Interim Directors of Land of Medicine Buddha

    I went to Military Police basic training with this guy in 1984 at Fort McClellan, AL. I hope they run a pipe up his rectum and rotate him over a raging fire.

  2. not a pogue says:

    No blue cord? Guy, i have personally made example of two people like you who claimed to be an INF-CPT and a SGT in Iraq. You ask these clueless douche bags imposters unique questions regarding their tours overseas and they will stutter their way to silence.

  3. SGT says:

    Lol, the easiest one that works every time is the company XO questions. Deployed? You’ve had two XO’s. As them who their XO was. When they fuck that up, as them who their next XO was. Then ask what unit he rotated in from.

    I love it.

  4. Sporkmaster says:

    I can see how that can work, I remember all of those answers.

    Worthy of the term “gaytarded.”

    This a**hole should be shot!!! During my 24yrs. I never earned a combat ribbon, nor a ribbon of valor! (9/11 wasn’t here yet). These men and women of today, who have earned the right to wear ribbons and/or awards of combat and valor should be held in the highest regards. When I see pictures of the combat dead comming home, it still brings tears to my eyes.

    The posers, should get their a** kicked and shot. Then they would know what combat is all about.
    Let me train the posers, they turn my stomach!!!!

  7. OMG says:

    I know that most people on here are probably Military personal who are are rightfully outraged at his heinous and offensive impersations of a decorated military man, and I am not sure who is homophobic or not on here, but let me tell you that the Gay community should be outraged too. This crazy loon has defiiled upstanding Gay soldiers and the Gay community as well. It is interesting to note that he never mentions IU Bloomington as a place he attended school but he did. He never paid his tuition though and was forced out. He also used to live in Boston and worked at a club called Citi or Warehouse and was arrested there for Arson. He also once maintained that he worked with New Kids on the Block and Jimmy Page as a dancer. I was nearly convinced until he showed me alleged video footage of himself and it was far off in the scene but it was clearly not him. He also conned 300 dollars out of me and stole things from my best friend before I told his sorry sorry arse to never speak to me again. I seriously suspected he had a cocaine addiction ath the time as well. I cannot believe he was still out there conning his way through life. I am so shocked right now. I dated this man for a number of months back in 1990-1991. I was young and a bit naive and I was just one of many many people hurt by this lunatic. I am very glad he is finally in Jail

  8. Hey you says:

    I’m not in the military nor am I a vet, so I can’t really speak to any of this clown’s military CV, but I do have an in-law that worked for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Cmte. If that one last line of his résumé needs debunked, I’d be happy to check into it. My gut tells me that the background he made up for himself is controversial enough that it would be next to impossible for him to have obtained a visa into the PRC, though.

  9. MarcW says:

    Gosh, all y’all need some “hope” and “change”. Oops. That didn’t work.

    This morning the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals announced the Stolen Valor Act is unconstitutional. Since people can now make false claims about their military service, maybe I’ll buy a black robe, award myself the title of “Judge”, and start making up stories about fake court cases. It’s my right under the First Amerndment, after all.

    Re-elect nobody.

  10. PintoNag says:

    This guy either has a tapeworm, or is one. I’m not sure which…

  11. Scott says:

    “This morning the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals announced the Stolen Valor Act is unconstitutional”

    No, it didn’t. The Federal District Court for Colorado ruled it unconstitutional. There is a monumental difference in precedential value.

  12. TO OMG says:

    OMG…………wow, you seem to skewer this guy with no recourse. I know him personally. During the time that YOU state that you dated him, he was living in Boston/Roxbury. He was dating a man named Bob Gay, sax player for Tommy Page and New Kids on The Block. He was NEVER arrested for arson, as you claim. I was his roommate back at Purdue Uni……………….NOT I.U. Not sure where you got your facts from, but it just sounds like you were someone he rejected, because I DO know that he was close with Bob the Sax player. You might want to get your facts straight. Peace!

  13. streetsweeper says:

    Hey! You! TO OMG! Yea you! Git outta the gene pool now!

    (nothing like being really late to a long abandoned post, you dumbass!)

  14. Nigel Brooks says:

    Latest on McManus.

    He apparently intends to defend himself by claiming that his wearing of the unauthorized decorations was “free speech”.

    Well good luck on that – Houston is in the 5th Circuit and is not bound by any of the recent decisions from the 9th Circuit or the Colorado District Court. Those decisions, by the way are being appealed by the Govt – and only relate to the act of lying about receipt of the awards in speech. The wearing of the medals was not addressed in the decisions.


  15. ??? ????? says:

    Hey! You! TO OMG! Yea you! Git outta the gene pool now!

  16. DiddyKong says:

    Oh wow! I know someone firsthand that played volleyball with this guy in the Bay Area, CA. MP McDickhead went out to dinner with a group once, ordered steak and lobster while everyone else was ordering pasta bowls and proceeded to suggest the check be “split evenly” which is a dick move but still– when the check-dust cleared ONE person hadn’t paid their $22 at the end of the dinner. Golly, guess who? (He insisted he had, but the people to either side of him say he didn’t.)

    I’m not in the military but I have the HIGHEST respect for those who are, and especially those who gave all. I’d rather see a chimp in a military outfit than this POS.

  17. If that one last line of his résumé needs debunked, I’d be happy to check into it. My gut tells me that the background he made up for himself is controversial enough that it would be next to impossible for him to have obtained a visa into the PRC, though.

    Hell Im not surprised how fast he went from LTC to BG after reading his instant promotion from Sergeant to Captain! lmao
