Critical race theory is now seeping into the United States military.
Donald Trump’s called for conservatives to support legislation banning critical race theory.
But now Trump won’t like which Republican came out in support of critical race theory.
A testy exchange between former Green Beret and Florida Congressman Michael Waltz and the woke Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley went viral when Milley sounded like a campus social justice warrior claiming troops studying critical race theory—which teaches that America is a systemically racist nation—is key for the military to understand America.
Milley also echoed woke activists in blaming “white rage” for the events of January 6.
It was too much for conservatives who slammed Milley for focusing on indoctrinating troops with an ideology that divides people based on race and teaches that some people should feel guilty because of how they were born rather than defending America from foreign enemies.
But not every Republican shared that attitude.
On Anderson Cooper’s CNN show, Illinois RINO Congressman Adam Kinzinger—who voted for impeachment, amnesty and a national gun registration database this year—offered a full-throated defense of Milley promoting critical race theory and for attacking Trump supporters as “white rage”-filled terrorists that pose the greatest threat to America.
“I think there is value in understanding different viewpoints,” Kinzinger told Cooper.
Kinzinger claimed pushing back against a Marxist ideology designed to subvert the country by forcing every American to view societal interactions through the lens of race was just stoking outrage.
The Illinois congressman claimed troops being bombarded with books designed to divide Americans by making them suspicious of others based on their race was just a figment of conservatives’ imagination.
“I think the bottom line is everything that led to that is this new kind of — well, it’s not really new, but it’s really accelerated — just trying to stoke outrage and division,” Kinzinger continued. “And I think you saw that with the questions were intended to basically stoke outrage and division, and I wish people would depoliticize the military. Its job is to defeat our enemies or be willing to do that.”
Kinzinger continued on defending the idea that teaching troops that American institutions— one of which is the military—were founded on white supremacy would enhance the ability of the military to perform its job of defending America.
“That’s the job of the military. If we want to debate all these other issues, we can debate them, but I think the military just needs to go out and do what it does. And you have so many on, I guess, on both sides, but I can be particularly critical of my side as a Republican, that are just out trying to stoke darkness, fear, division over and over because it gets you retweets, it gets you likes, you might be able to raise some money, but it’s really destructive to this country,” Kinzinger added.
Adam Kinzinger is a politician first and foremost.
Critics suspect Kinzinger swung so far to the left this year because he fears Illinois Democrats in the state legislature will wipe his district out of existence to boost their fellow Democrats as part of the once-every-ten-years redistricting process.
KInzinger may be trying to keep his seat by proving to Illinois Democrats that he can be expected to behave and support the left’s agenda at every key moment.
In 2010 KInzinger was elected as part of the Tea Party wave.
But he turned out to be one of the typical establishment Republicans that pretended to be a campaign trail conservative in order to win votes.
Kinzinger’s main audience is CNN, and he will perform on command to try and please the left.
