For a couple of years now, the U.S. military has had a serious recruitment problem. That isn’t really a surprise.
Our leaders have injected the entire menu of radical “woke” ideology into the tissues of the military establishment.
Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, worries about “white rage” and supports teaching critical race theory to the troops.
In March 2022, the Biden administration announced a new policy under which people suffering from gender dysphoria would not only be allowed to serve in the military but also would have their “gender reassignment” surgery paid for by taxpayers.
Traditionally, conservative families, especially conservative working-class families, supplied a large percentage of military recruits.
Those families are not thrilled by the intrusion of such politically correct sentiments into an institution hitherto marked by its commitment to traditional moral and martial values.
They aren’t interested in sending their children to be catechized by anti-American Marxists or apostles of sexual exotica.
The Biden administration seems blissfully unaware of this reality.
At least, I assume it’s unaware of what two retired Army generals called “a major threat to our national security.”
Otherwise, it would be difficult to explain Biden’s recent executive order regarding “environmental justice.”
According to the White House, the new order is part of the administration’s “whole-of-government effort to confront longstanding environmental injustices and inequities.”
Of course, we live at a time when everything is potentially racist.
Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg even argued that highway designs in the United States are “racist.”
So it should come as no surprise that “environmental justice” is really just an aspect of “racial justice.” . . .
. . . . Once upon a time, people joined the military to serve their country.
Now they’re being asked to join a therapy group to promote a progressive agenda.
Increasingly, the answer to that call is, “No thanks.” . . . . (read more / Epoch Times)
