The U.S. Diversity Force
New inclusion quotas come at a bad time for the Air Force.
The United States Air Force was created in 1947 and tasked with defending America’s national security from the skies. In Barack Obama’s 2016 version of the Air Force, however, “diversity” is king. At a time when the USAF faces a critical shortage of 700 pilots and 4,000 support personnel for aircraft, Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Dave Goldfein and CMSAF James Cody recently announced, as Air Force Magazine reports, “13 new diversity and inclusion initiatives … for certain promotion candidate pools, membership on command selection boards and nominations for recruiter duty.” That’s not all. “Additionally, Air Force ROTC will receive $14 million over five years to fund 200 new scholarships for ROTC candidates from ‘underserved and underrepresented’ population centers.”
Now don’t get us wrong — we’re all for finding the best qualified people, and if scholarships and better targeting help find them, then great. But that’s not what this is about. It’s the same morale destroying PC social engineering that Obama is constantly foisting upon our Patriot Armed Forces. Whether it’s “Gay Pride” propaganda, removing “So Help Me God” from military oaths, or tossing out retired AF personnel for mentioning God, “progressive” assaults on our military are growing under this commander in chief. Hillary Clinton will only implement more of the same.
