GOP Discovers Woke Military

| November 21, 2022 | 26 Comments

During a House Armed Services hearing, Florida Congress Critter Matt Gaetz asked SECDEF Lloyd Austin about his thoughts on Critical Race Theory in the military.

Austin dismissed the issue saying, “We do not teach critical race theory. We don’t embrace critical race theory, and I think that’s a spurious conversation.*”

This exchange occurred over a year ago, and Gaetz asked the wrong question.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Are Necessities in U.S. Military

Diversity, equity and inclusion in the military are necessities for the United States, Bishop Garrison, the senior advisor to the secretary of defense for human capital and diversity, equity and inclusion said.

I want people to see [diversity, equity and inclusion] as another tool in the toolkit and another way of solving these problems.” Bishop Garrison, the senior advisor to the secretary of defense for human capital and diversity, equity and inclusion.

Solving problems? Readiness retention and morale are all, we know. All this is news to Republicans, as discovered by Sen. Rubio (R-Fl), and Rep. Roy (R-Tx) in a recently released report.  Mick was kind enough to forward the link to this stunning revelation.

Pentagon promotes critical race theory, gender identity ‘insanity’: GOP report

Defense Department insists it does not teach critical race theory

By Patrick Hauf | Fox News

The Biden administration has launched extensive diversity and equity initiatives in the military that have popularized elements of critical race theory and gender identity and significantly weakened the U.S. armed forces, according to a report obtained exclusively by Fox News Digital.

“Our military’s singular purpose is to ‘provide for the common defense’ of our nation,” the report said. “It cannot be turned into a left-wing social experiment. It cannot be used as a cudgel against America itself. And it cannot be paralyzed by fear of offending the sensibilities of Ivy League faculty lounges or progressive pundits.

“The world is a dangerous place, and the Biden administration’s insanity is eroding our greatest source of security in it.”

The report from Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, details how the military has allocated resources to root out extremism within its ranks as it promotes predominantly left-wing ideas on race and gender. This includes documentation on how military employees promoted critical race theory and espouse anti-White views.

“The Department of Defense’s priority should be training the men and women of our Armed Forces to be a united, lethal and battle-ready force primed to defend the United States and her interests at a moment’s notice,” Roy told Fox News Digital.

Thank you Representative Obvious. You have correctly identified the problem. Now what?

Thanks, Mick.

I think a huge problem is people graduating with impractical degrees that in turn have them looking for jobs where they are the expert at fixing manufactured problems. The corporation feels like they have fixed – or at least put a band-aid on – any scrutiny by hiring someone to develop a diversity program.

Out of chaos comes order– create both the problem and the “solution” (it’s an old ploy).

Anyone ask Austin what happened to the Masons?

Wonder if he has a ring.

Milley and Austin are the 2 most useless pustules in the Chain of Command exceeded only by the Pedo-in-Chief.

This past week drove my wife to an appointment at Joint Base Lewis-McChord’s Madigan Army Hospital. Knew her appointment was going to take a while so took the dog for a walk around the hospital grounds. Got to the barracks for the AIT students and was surprised to see a pride flag in a first floor window being used as a curtain.

I.E.D. is going to get folks killed.

This is nothing new, just history repeating itself – on steroids.

Anyone remember Patsy Schroeder (D-CO) ? GI Jane was a movie crafted along real-life events of the time; except in real life, the feminist advocate was Schroeder; the “guinea pig” was one Kara Hultgreen, someone who should have never been near a high-performance jet, and someone who unceremoniously killed herself while attempting to land a high-performance jet on an aircraft carrier. Note the source of this article:

https://www.salon.com/1997/03/17/horowitz970317/

Salon wasn’t a hard-left apologist publication 25 years ago…

To clear up the adjectives.

Died in a fatal mishap while attempting a landing of an F-14 aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, simultaneous to experiencing a port engine compressor stall. To quote Ward Carroll “The machine doesn’t care what gender you are.”

David Horowitz may be a notional Conservative, but like most journalists I wouldn’t trust him to understand anything more technical than a can opener.

Meanwhile the border is still secure, per Sec Mayorcas.

Mayorcas is a whiny little fruit loop, isn’t he? We know, and he knows, he is lying to us.

Off topic, but important late breaking news! CBS has just discovered that Hunter’s laptop and its contents are real and not Russian propaganda. Someone needs to break this to Gunga Dan, the cuttlefish, and those 51 Intel experts/professionals.

Hack Stone

So, CBS News is declaring it real but inaccurate?

Looks like the Left decided they need insurance that Joe doesn’t run again.

rgr769

I think there are certain powerful entities and persons who are afraid to let Joe run again. Their puppet has outlived his utility; and they are having trouble keeping his strings taut.

Weekend At Biden’s II.

Speaking of Weekend At Biden’s, one his granddaughters, not the stripper momma baby but another one, was married at the White House this weekend. Chris Plante at WMAL reported that the bride and groom, both lawyers, have been residing in the White House for quite some time. You know that economy under Joe Biden is bad when two lawyers cannot afford rent in the National Capital Region.

To be fair, lawerin’ ain’t all it ustta be.

Just be glad they ain’t aspiring pilots, or is that unfortunate? Guess it depends on where you (crash) land on the issue.

Real lawerin’, as in trying cases in court, isn’t anywhere near as lucrative as being a lawer who is a political grifter.

What a liar sexdef is. He must also be a big fan of cnn and msnBS. My Cardiologist has the noun thing and all the other woke stuff on the sheet. All you see are the patients who are of the WWII/Silent majority generation and baby boomers in the office. I left that section alone WTF.

I noticed the same thing- left it blank. No one questioned me why.

EO wasn’t enough.
Now we have to create an additional bureaucracy of DIE commissars.
And take away more billets from actual productive service members.
And hire more civilians to administer the programs.
And create more training events that take more time and resources away useful training events.

I’m sure if we just push DIE harder (yeah, I see what I did there), it will make up the recruiting shortfalls.
Just like doing away with DADT led to a stampede to the recruiting offices.
And letting the rest of the Gilberts in for free slice and dice really boosted end strength.

Really questioning my goal of hanging in for 40.

A “woke” military blows and can’t fight, just so you know.
