Generals who focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, lecture a “white colonel” about the need for more diverse officers, and proclaim climate change a national security threat seem to be finding rewards in the Biden administration.
In February, Air Force Brig. Gen. Stacy Jo Huser and two other women were part of a panel at the University of Mississippi about diversity and inclusion in the armed forces. The event’s sponsors were the Ole Miss Army ROTC program and the Trent Lott Leadership Institute.
In March, President Joe Biden nominated Huser for promotion to major general.
“President Biden has appointed a bunch of woke advocates to senior positions in the armed forces; at the macro level, that is extremely problematic,” Tom Jones, president of the American Accountability Foundation, told The Daily Signal.

If you jump on the bandwagon of the day, which today is the Marxist concept of DEI [and] eliminating the meritocracy, maybe you’ll get promoted. But what I’d rather see mission-focused officers and leaders who are true to their oath.”
