Stop the Left’s Beatdown of Our Military

Teaching our military personnel to hate America is unconscionable.

One year ago on September 4, 2020, a memo was issued by then-Director of the Office of Management and Budget Russell Vought revealing that executive branch agencies had spent millions of taxpayer dollars “training government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda.” The memo transitioned into a directive. Agencies were ordered to identify and cancel contracts and defund spending for training on Critical Race Theory, white privilege, “or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either … that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or … that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil.” Critical Race Theory, an indoctrination threatening our schools, media, corporate America, and military, was recognized and terminated by the administration of President Donald Trump.

On President Joe Biden’s first day in office, however, an executive order was signed to revoke this Trump action. “Our diversity is one of our country’s greatest strengths,” Biden bloviated. That action threatens to use the personnel and service academies of the United States Armed Forces as a tool to destroy our nation from within.

Fellow Americans, we’re witnessing a crisis. We’ve discussed before that our children face indoctrination and propaganda that cause them to doubt their identities, their family structures, and their great nations. Now, everyone from kids in school to our military personnel are taught that our nation is inherently prejudiced and that “systemic racism” is rampant.

How does diversity and inclusion training harm the U.S. Armed Forces? Empathizing with and understanding the men and women with whom you serve is definitely virtuous and adds to team-building, yet the very composition of that which is taught is divisive and not unifying. Instead of being taught the practices and ideologies of one’s opponents and allies, our warriors are now studying the roles of the oppressed or the oppressor throughout all of society, including among their own peers and colleagues.

The reading lists at West Point and the Navy now contain books by Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo, race-hustlers cashing in on sowing discord and blame. Among those defending these texts and the resumption of this radical training has been Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Recall his stunning statement before the House Committee on Armed Services declaring: “It’s important actually for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read. I want to understand white rage.” If Milley and his woke colleagues had been as devoted to following through on the 2020 structured plan to exit Afghanistan, they could have protected the lives of our military and innocents — many of whom weren’t exactly “white.”

The United States Armed Services attract those whose personal strengths form successful and cohesive units to become stronger than they could’ve ever been on their own. These men and women took the common oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” — to fight the oppressor, not focus on traits that divide and disrupt. No other nation is foolish enough to risk its national security by turning its military into a social program. The men and women of our military, under President Joe Biden and the leadership of Democrats, are now being taught to hate this great land. We’re thankful most of them don’t buy it, but how long with that last?

Who’ll fight for America when so many are taught to hate it? Those who love their great land and are fed up with the beatdown of America’s greatness, that’s who.
