(Natural News) For decades, the left has made inroads into every American institution, taking over the arts and entertainment, academia, science, the federal bureaucracy, and, whenever possible, local, state and national government.
The U.S. military has managed to resist this infiltration, but in recent years — yes, even during the term of the most patriotic president in two generations, Donald Trump — leftists have made progress in the military.
And now that Joe Biden has been installed in the White House, the push to drive patriots out and replace them with propagandized, mind-numbed Communist cadres is in full-force.
It began with Biden’s appointment of Lloyd Austin as defense secretary. Austin, a retired U.S. Army four-star general, must have carried a chip on his shoulder his entire career, which was obviously very successful, because upon confirmation one of his first official acts was to order a 90-day stand-down of the entire military, so commanders could address the services’ most pressing issue: ‘Extremism in the ranks.’
Not Russia. Not China. Not Iran, North Korea, or foreign terrorists and cyber attackers. No. “Extremism” — as in, white extremism.
Since that outrage, the Army has put out a series of what can only be described as ‘woke’ recruiting ads, with one featuring a female soldier with two lesbian mothers and focuses on LGBTQ issues, and another involving a soldier who admitted growing up with psychological issues. This is what we’re using to attract recruits; what kind of ‘soldiers’ then, do you think America is going to get?
The pace at which the military is becoming a Marxist den has alarmed military vets in Congress including Arkansas GOP Sen. Tom Cotton, a Harvard Law-trained, former Army Ranger officer with two combat tours in Iraq, and Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, a multiple combat tour U.S. Navy SEAL who nearly gave his life for our country but instead wound up losing an eye instead.
They launched a program in recent weeks aimed at identifying the level of wokeness that has permeated the force thus far, and what they have discovered is nothing short of alarming.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) told Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on June 10 that “hundreds” of military whistleblowers have reported being forced to receive “anti-American indoctrination” training, including critical race theory (CRT).
In a Senate hearing with Austin, Cotton claimed that within the military, there’s “plummeting morale, growing mistrust between races and sexes where none existed just six months ago and unexpected retirements and separations based on these trainings alone.”
Cotton said one whistleblower has alleged that a military history training course was replaced with curriculum dealing with police brutality, “white privilege,” and “systemic racism.” Another claimed his unit was forced to read “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo, a feminist author and critical theory proponent.
This comes after the U.S. Space Force relieved Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, a former instructor and fighter pilot, from command of the 11th Space Warning Squadron because of comments he made denouncing CRT while warning about how Marxist ideology was spreading throughout the service branches.
In response, Austin came up with some BS claiming that curriculum is being developed and released that is “welcoming to everyone who can qualify and who is fit to serve” — though previous recruiting messages focused on toughness, competition, love of country, and commitment to service were working because the services were not suffering shortages of recruits.
“We ought to look like the America we support and defend, and senior leadership should look like what’s in the ranks,” Austin said.
What’s that got to do with anything? Not everyone can serve; it’s a privilege, not a right. And the Pentagon wasn’t putting out messages aimed at discouraging certain demographics from joining, or outright discriminating against them.
So again, this is all garbage — it’s just an attempt to destroy the last truly non-partisan institution we have left, and that’s not going to bode well for our future.
