Army Associated MAGA as Possible Indicator of White Supremacist Sympathies

| July 11, 2020

The Army removed a handout that was meant to encourage inclusiveness. One of the things that it listed as a possible indicator of “White Supremacy” was the Trump Campaign’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. Couple this with the general who apologized for being with President Trump when the later visited the Church that was vandalized during the riots.

From the American Thinker:

It highlights the dangerous wokesterism infiltrating the military, coupled with an amazingly brazen disrespect for the commander-in-chief. We’re seeing lots of hints of it all around the perimeter — the military’s resistance to ending transgender soldiers, who require significant medical care and are disruptive to military order, to the naval commander who took his COVID worries aboard a ship at sea to the press instead of up his chain of command, informing the enemy; the coddling of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who committed quite a few irregularities at the National Security Council and then attempted to unseat President Trump with the help of the partisan Democrats; and the military’s resistance to putting down civil unrest engulfing America’s cities, raising questions about what it was good for if it couldn’t bring itself to put a stop to a bona fide internal threat. Protecting Afghanis? Color us unimpressed.

It sounds as though the U.S. Army is becoming a Latin American–style military now, where professionalism is secondary, political loyalty is primary, and gangsterism is the logical outcome. This happened in Venezuela, by the way, as Hugo Chávez was rising through the ranks. Eventually, a leftist culture ended up putting political loyalty first and foremost and looked the other way as the army morphed into a drug-dealing operation. And yes, as with the U.S. Army, it was all in a rabidly leftist direction. Leftists, see, like power.

The article mentions how President Obama removed traditional leaders from the Pentagon. He replaced them with pro Obama leaders. This poses the risk of the Army going from the professional Army that it is today to what Venezuela has now. The American Thinker has more here.

    Wokeism is a disease.

    If you support and defend the US Constitution, you are a white supremacist…

  3. IDC SARC says:

    That’s kinda..insubordinate.

  4. The Other Whitey says:

    Remember when those guys started posting those selfies in uniform saying “I won’t fight Obama’s war in Syria?”

    Pearls were clutched. How dare they? He’s the commander-in-chief whose lawful orders they swore to obey! But now this? That’s a pretty blatant double standard.

      I served under Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, and Obama. I did not always agree with my Presidential leaders, but I saluted and carried on with the mission. I swore to defend and uphold the constitution and to obey the lawful orders of those appointed above me, not to pick and choose based on my own political views.

    Do we know for certain it was the Captain of the Roosevelt that took his email to the media?

    • SFC D says:

      I’m not sure, but he absolutely created the situation that allowed the leak. And that’s close enough.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      We know he put restricted info in an unsecure platform.

      -that- was the “spill”. Absent that, it would not have been seen by pressies.

    Lawd halp! Riddle me this Batman. Are we reaping the fruits of the crops planted by the past 25 to 30 years of National Command Authority sh^tbaggery? Or does it go back further? After all, we have people in this country who not only returned a murderer to the Senate, where he was “lionized”, the same people attempted to have him elected to the highest office in the land. And the list of abominations goes on.

    Is this just one more example of the deep state takeover of our country that the surprise election of Trump delayed for a few years? Now that they have elected the government they deserved, do we now have the military that will do the bidding that they require? Somehow I don’t think that Pvt Snuffy/Snuffette or the ever present E4 Mafia put this out by themselves.

    We have always had politically motivated Service Members. IMO, the ones we have today, that are politically motivated, are not in it for their self promotion, they are in it to promote the destruction of our way of life. The barbarians are not just at the gate, they are inside the wire…and are giving the orders.

    I only take a knee for God and my woman, serve the same, to include The Constitution of These States United.
    The rest of these ‘woke’ mf’s, the .govs and anyone that threatens my sovereignty can suck it.
    It’s not hard people! You can read the whole thing in one sitting, ffs.
    Once you owe someone your head is fruit for the Chopping Block.

  8. Jus Bill says:

    It will take at least another full generation to restore the professional military that Obama destroyed, IMO.

    Purge the staff at the USMA and other’s.

    Progressive careerist suck-asses would’ve had us speaking Russian or German for the benefits and job security.

    Hey, Army! You might enjoy knowing that I bought my MAGA hat from a black guy. No, he wasn’t just a vendor making a quick buck, either. He believes it. There are more than a few blacks in your Army who do as well.

    I thank God for all the loyal Americans in the Army. They come in all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. Perhaps you need to keep that in mind as you continue to use your power to destroy this country.

    My military service spanned many CinC’s. I hadn’t voted for about half of them. Only once did I seriously wonder if he had the best interests of the country at heart. Then his wife ran. All doubt was erased.

    This is what happens when you don’t drain the swamp !!!!!!
    No empathy here

    Of hiring the swamp and failing to hold dirty
    Shitbags accountable for 2016 drama

    Among the other racist phrases:
    -There’s only one human race.
    -Local taxes being used to pay for education locally.
    -Denying white privilege.
    -Calling police on black people.

    What in the holy fusk? And what the hell is an “Equity and Inclusion Agency”?

  14. Old 1SG, US Army (retired) says:

    The email and “flyer” was sent out by a “silly servant” to military and civil servants at Redstone Arsenal. I’m sure contractors received the email as well.

    This was not unintentional, not sent in error or accidentally… someone took the time to put together the flyer and email it out.

    This was a blatant attempt to label a large portion of the people this silly servant works for as White = Racist!

    My guess is this guy is either stupid or a social justice warrior, or both!

    As someone who resides next to Redstone Arsenal and works on post for a non-DOD organization, I can tell that the Army is not likely to do anything to this guy and or the chain of command, and that’s unfortunate.

    If the story was something negative about the mostly peaceful protesters or supportive of law enforcement, you can bet your sweet arse that heads would be rolling…
