Video: Lady GaGa Continues Fighting 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy


Lady GaGa


The outlandish singer posted a new video message, urging lawmakers to stand up and fight against 'discrimination.'

Lady GaGa has stepped up her bid to force U.S. politicians to repeal the military's controversial 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy regarding gay servicemen and women, urging lawmakers to stand up and fight against "discrimination". The "Poker Face" hitmaker has been a leading voice in the battle to allow homosexuals and bisexuals to serve openly in the armed forces and vowed to continue the campaign after the U.S. Senate voted against debating a new bill on the topic in September.

The opportunity was blocked by a Republican-led filibuster, but a report on the effects of ending the ban is due to be presented to senators on Wednesday, December 1 and GaGa has made a last-ditch attempt to appeal to their better natures.

In a two-minute video posted on YouTube.com on Monday (29Nov10), she says, "The Senate needs to get this bill passed this year to repeal 'Don't Ask Don't Tell', otherwise it can take years for it to happen. We have to end this law because it reinforces discrimination and it's setting a bad example. We've known for many years that an overwhelming majority of Americans are ready to repeal."

Sending a message directly to lawmakers, she then adds, "You said you would debate and address this law when the Pentagon returned with a strategy and tomorrow morning you will have it. So will you keep your word?"
