Republican elected officials have recently questioned the Biden administration’s woke policies, which are hurting the US military. The Epoch Times’ Naveen Athrappully described how Republicans believe in using leftist indoctrination and “woke” intellectual posturing to placate “Ivy League staff lounges or progressive journalists.”
“Unfortunately, Pres. Joe Biden and his gov’t are undermining America’s warfighters through a prolonged assault driven by woke virtue signaling,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Rep. Chip Roy declared in their study “Woke Warfighters.”
“Our military’s sole mission is always to provide for the common defense of our country. It cannot be transformed into a socialist social experiment. It can’t be used as a club against America.”
The study refers to numerous examples of the Biden administration’s policies. One notable example was Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin’s first move after being confirmed by the Senate, in which he signed a “racist” memorandum. The message ordered all service members and civilian employees of the Defense Department to observe a “one-day to stand-down” to discuss extremism among their ranks.
The irony is that according to data gathered by the Biden government, there were only 100 occurrences of claimed “extremism” among the American armed force of 2.1 million active and reserve troops.
“The world is a dangerous place, and the Biden Admin’s craziness is weakening our most important source of security in it,” the study declared, referring to the military’s advocacy of the critical race theory, gender reassignment surgery, and transgender ideology.
Bishop Garrison, Austin’s top consultant on human resources and diversification, equality, and inclusive problems, was highlighted in the study. According to the report, Garrison promoted the “1619 Project,” a revisionist type of history that asserts that the United States is a systemically racist nation.
This report also mentioned the case of Kelisa Wing, the top diversity, equality, and inclusivity officer at the Defense Department’s Education Agency.
“Wing also authored a book to teach white youngsters about their white privilege and how it “hurts a great many people. The book includes an exercise to help students identify what pieces of my identity have presented me with privilege,” according to the article.
On the issue of sex reassignment, Roy and Rubio emphasized how the US military has typically refused to accept recruits that don’t meet particular physical and mental qualifications. Some of the “disqualifying conditions listed by Athrapully include allergies to gluten or peanuts, learning difficulties, acute anxiety or depression, and skin diseases including psoriasis and eczema.”
“People cannot even join with Invisalign or braces until they have been removed,” according to the study. Instead, the military is “promoting and applauding gender reassignment treatments, which may require months-long recovery time, with total recovery requiring ‘up to an entire year for certain procedures.”
