Nothing is safe from the incursion of wokeness.
Every part of American culture has been infected by leftists.
Now the U.S. Military is going “woke” with one terrifying move.
In light of the Capitol Hill riot, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stunned people when he issued a 60-day stand-down order to address “extremism” within the armed forces.
Soldiers were being vetted for their political views – one member was sent home from the National Guard for exhibiting a Gadsden flag.
And it turns out that the people doing the vetting have a clear political bias.
From Fox News:
“The Pentagon official tasked with leading efforts to crack down on extremist views among military servicemembers once asserted that backers of former President Donald Trump were also supporters of racism, misogyny and extremism. The official, Bishop Garrison, is a senior adviser to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and head of the Pentagon’s Countering Extremism Working Group. Garrison expressed his view in a series of tweets on July 27, 2019.”
It seems as though “extremism” is synonymous with Donald Trump supporters.
This is the designation that Democrats are pushing for.
If they can label any Trump supporter an extremist, they can turn the War on Terror on 75+ million people and expand the surveillance state.
Garrison said on Twitter back in 2019:
“Silence from our Congressional leaders is complicity . . . [Trump] is only going to get worse from here, & his party and its leadership are watching it happen while doing nothing to stop it. Support for him, a racist, is support for ALL his beliefs.”
This Trump-deranged mindset is coming from the military’s grand inquisitor, not an unhinged college professor.
Garrison said in another tweet:
“He’s dragging a lot of bad actors (misogynist, extremists, other racists) out into the light, normalizing their actions . . . If you support the President, you support that. There is no room for nuance with this. There is no more ‘but I’m not like that’ talk.”
The Left is trying to set up a false binary by castigating anyone who supports Trump with the worst of the worst.
It’s concerning that this is one of the top people entrusted with vetting the military.
Not even the military is safe from wokeness.
The Army recently put out an ad promoting a female corporal with two lesbian mothers.
Why that’s important to the mission of the Army is anyone’s guess.
A Space Command officer ripped Tucker Carlson for his opinion on the Air Force creating maternity fly suits, and another Space Command officer was fired for writing a book about the specter of Marxism within the military.
The military brass is going woke, and that’s bad for the country.
