Anyone paying attention knows that our military is not run by the patriots of the past. Most of the hierarchy has sold out or been infiltrated by progressive/woke/liberals who are intent on changing it substantively.
In June of last year, the Navy got on board big time. They formed a task force “to address the issues of racism, sexism and other destructive biases and their impact on naval readiness.” Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Mike Gilday said, “As a Navy—uniform and civilian, active and reserve—we cannot tolerate discrimination or racism of any kind. We must work to identify and eliminate individual and systemic racism within our force. That is why we are standing up Task Force One Navy, which will work to identify and remove racial barriers and improve inclusion within our Navy.”
The result is they want every military person to pledge this:
The pledge reads: “As a key member of Task Force One Navy I will invest the time, attention and empathy required to analyze and evaluate Navywide issues related to racism, sexism, ableism and other structural and interpersonal biases.
“I pledge to be actively inclusive in the public and private spheres where I live and work, and proactively encourage others to do the same.
“I pledge to advocate for and acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities of every Sailor in the Navy.
“I pledge to engage in ongoing self-reflection, education and knowledge sharing to better myself and my communities.
“I pledge to be an example in establishing healthy, inclusive and team-oriented environments.
“I pledge to constructively share all experiences and information gained from activities above to inform the development of Navywide reforms.”
Now no one wants discrimination, but maybe the military should go back to what their purpose is – defending the nation.
