The Defense Department bans LGBT websites but lets in Rush and Ann Coulter
It’s bad enough the United States Department of Defense censors Towleroad and AMERICAblog – banning the gay civil rights Web sites from being accessed on Pentagon computers – and it’s even worse that the Pentagon has no problem permitting their computers to access Ann Coulter’s and Rush Limbaugh’s hate-filled Web sites.
But what’s really offensive is that the Pentagon has a censorship category called “LGBT.” And if you’re deemed “LGBT” by the Pentagon, they ban you.

I wonder if the Pentagon has a censorship category titled “Jewish,” “African-American,” or “Latino.”
The LGBT filter existed before the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, but still has not been fixed. And the Pentagon was notified of the problem as early as last summer, 2012. Yet no one’s gotten around to doing anything about it. I’m also told that the censorship varies service and geographical reason – it’s not entirely clear why the Pentagon doesn’t use the same bans nationwide and agency-wide, if it’s going to use any bans at all. This problem has to be fixed Pentagon-wide.
