It seems our new Chief of Staff of all the armed forces, one Milley, has come out in favour of teaching Critical Race Theory at West Point and has endorsed other “woke” opinions and initiatives.
Who is this disgrace to every person who has ever died or suffered in arms for America in the last two centuries? He is from (you guessed it!) Massachusetts. He did not go to West Point, but to Princeton. It seems his resume' includes every imaginable staff and non-combat command. Never heard a shot fired in anger, was never truly in harm’s way, despite a chest heavy with medals.
Look at that weak, smug face. Compare it with the face of MacArthur or Patton, Grant or Lee. This is no soldier. This is a consummate paper-shuffling, boot-licking, back-stabbing bureaucrat.
Can you imagine Russia, China, or Japan entrusting supreme command to such a creature? I do not think even Britain, France, or Germany are that “woke” as yet. Do you think any potential enemies are shaking in their boots about facing American “rainbow” divisions?
Think about this. When is the last time you heard a press or political discussion of the armed forces’ duty to defend the American homeland and people? What we hear is the insane and criminal babble that we are “defending” Americans by dropping bombs on people on the other side of the world who cannot possibly do us any harm if we are prudent about who enters the homeland. This is incompetence and foolishness at the highest level. And now they have invented a duty of the armed forces to change America into a woke society, while purging all real patriots from the ranks.
Yes, the withdrawal from Afghanistan was a disaster. But so were the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. It could not have ended any other way. A competent and patriotic government would have carried out a skilled action to find and punish those who had done us harm. Instead we invaded two countries under the illusion of bringing “democracy” to a Muslim people. This was a crazy criminal act carried out by most of the ruling elite and supported by a frightening percentage of the people.
This could never have happened in a country whose rulers were motivated by patriotism, facts, and common sense and had any familiarity with history.
