The above photo is of Dan Choi and his little band of misfits headed to his sentencing in DC yesterday. I don’t know what the whole uniform thing is about – Choi has been out of the Army for three years – are those the only clothes he owns? The gay community should pitch in and buy him some more appropriate clothes. Yes, he’s in violation of Army regulations about wearing his uniform after the service. Too bad he can’t be prosecuted for that, too.
It seems to me that if Choi really wanted to get back in the Army, he’d stop using the uniform as a political costume. Some of us are proud to have worn the uniform and some of us take offense.
He looks like shit, too. I guess being an activist is beating the life out of him.
But, regardless, he was fined $100 for not moving along when told to move along in front of the White House after chaining himself to the White House fence – while wearing ACUs. I think he got off easy – but the government probably wanted to just get rid of him.
