Joe Biden’s first 100 days have been an embarrassment.
He’s already crippled Border Patrol agencies in their attempts to curb illegal immigration.
Now Republicans are sounding the alarm on one thing destroying the military.
Joe Biden is filling his Cabinet with Obama-era swamp creatures and far-left ideologues.
One of the consequences is that “wokeness” is spreading throughout the halls of government.
Not even the military is immune from the insanity.
A group of congressional Republicans drafted a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin in hopes of getting him to tamp down the woke invasion.
The GOP members wrote:
“We write to express concern about the growing trend of left-wing extremism and politicization in our armed forces. The military’s long history of standing above politics has made it one of the most respected institutions in America and enabled our armed forces to both defend the Homeland and serve as one of the bulwarks of our constitutional order. That legacy is now in jeopardy.”
The letter then goes on to list several red flag incidents, including:
“In March of this year, the U.S. Special Operations Command, which trains and oversees special forces like the SEAL teams, Green Berets, and Delta Force, hired Richard Torres-Estrada to be their first ever Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer and announced a new ‘Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan’ for our special forces. Days later, amid widespread backlash, he was reassigned after his vast trove of far-left social media posts came to light, one of which compared President Donald J. Trump to Adolf Hitler.”
There were plenty more examples.
The House GOP members brought up the incident of Space Force Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Lohmeier being relieved of his command for pointing out the growing threat of Marxist ideology within the military.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has also done a good job in exposing a lot of the woke nonsense infecting the military.
The letter continued:
“Recently the United States Army released a recruitment video titled ‘The Calling’ which describes marching in left-wing social protests as ‘defending freedom,’ depicts ‘two moms’ raising a child, features a lesbian wedding, and refers to the subject of the video’s service to this country as ‘shattering stereotypes.’ West Point has come under criticism for an anti-police, racist ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ training that caused consternation among parents and cadets.”
Wokeness makes the military less lethal and competent, thus making America less safe.
The military’s wading into political issues head-on is a concern, especially when the issues are so polarizing.
The CIA is doing it, too.
They recently released a video of a CIA officer who spouted off a litany of woke buzzwords to show just how progressive she was.
Radical leftism is taking over institutions despite being wildly unpopular.
Rank-and-file soldiers definitely lean more conservative, but the military brass is becoming increasingly woke.
This is a troubling sign for the future of the American military.
