Retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness talks with retired Navy Captain Tom Burbage on The Rob Maness Show:
The evidence is inescapable, much of today’s military leadership has embraced Marxism’s Critical Race Theory, is preparing their leadership academies to indoctrinate it, and is obfuscating those two facts in testimony to the Congress.
American citizens need to understand that their Armed Forces Leadership has embraced and doubled down on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
The current nominee for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is either more interested in the racial balance of the armed forces than its combat effectiveness or believes that combat effectiveness can be achieved through racial balancing.
Try running the latter perspective through the management or fan base of any major professional or college sports program (including the service academies sports programs) to see how that logic flies in organizations laser-focused on winning!
For that matter, try that on any Program manager for complex weapon systems development teams like the F-35!
Winning is the only thing!
My guest today is CAPT Tom Burbage is a Naval Academy graduate and Navy Test Pilot School graduate, and literally wrote the book on the F-35 program.
He has more than 3,000 hours in 38 types of military aircraft. In his aviation industry career, he was the Executive Vice President for the F-22 and later the F-35 programs.
He serves as the President of the Calvert Group, a group of USNA alums and others whose mission is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the principles of the United States Naval Academy.
