Here we go again…
The insane social engineering of the military marches on with more radical, left-wing, Cultural Marxist, insanity in the US Army, courtesy of the White House, Pentagon feather merchants and gutless officers.
Recently, the media learned that US Army soldiers underwent White Privilege Training in April of 2015.
About 400 soldiers at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia, were forced to sit through a training session that included a bullet-point discussion on “white privilege,” and outraged members of the social media community now say the instructor should be hit with a dishonorable discharge.
One bullet point read, “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. To be white in America means not having to think about it.” Soldiers were told at the April 2015 briefing that “Being able to command the attention of lower-status individuals without having to give it in return is a key aspect of privilege.” “Privilege is always at someone else’s expense and always exacts a cost,” the soldiers were told.
The training class was billed as an equal-opportunity seminar and shown to 400 or so soldiers with the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, said Captain Lindsay Roman in USA Today.
The segment of the slideshow presentation that involved “white privilege” was called “The Luxury of Obliviousness.”
The Army quickly went into damage control mode with this excuse:
“The unit instructor deviated from the authorized topic and content which was provided,” Roman said to USA Today. “To prevent further instances, all unit instructors will receive additional training on the importance of following Army EO training requirements.”
The briefing “alleged that there are unspecified ‘powerful forces everywhere’ keeping different kinds of people from being valued, accepted, and appreciated, but ‘we act as if it doesn’t exist,’”
“This alleged privilege creates a ‘yawning divide’ in income, wealth, and dignity. The material described a mythical African woman who isn’t aware that she’s black until she comes to America, encounters ‘white racism’ and discovers the U.S. is ‘organized according to race.'”
The Army’s defense is that this is just a lone instructor who went rogue.
That’s possible, but unlikely, considering all of the other lunacy being shoved down soldiers’ throats.
The white privilege training is just the latest in a long litany of cultural Marxist garbage being implemented in the military with no apparent protests by junior and senior leaders.
In December, a military diversity training officer, the modern day version of the Soviet Political Officer, instructed a group of U.S. soldiers at Camp Shelby, Miss., not to use the word “Christmas.”
Last year, the Army offered online classes to soldiers which described the Bible and the Declaration of Independence as sexist documents.
Across the country last Spring, US Army male ROTC cadets were ordered to wear red high heels and parade around college campuses to show their empathy for female rape victims.
Not to be upstaged by red high heels, US Army male soldiers were ordered to wear pregnancy simulators while conducting physical training. Apparently, this was to show male soldiers that pregnant soldiers have a tough time doing PT.
Pregnant Soldiers, kind of like Military Intelligence and Maternity ACU…
Who can forget the Breastfeeding and Lactation Support Memo signed by the Secretary of the Army last November? The memo was distributed to worldwide commands and instructed soldiers to “balance lactation support and readiness, plan for storing breast milk in the field and create lactation stations in garrison, in the field and on deployments.”
Deployments? Breastfeeding on deployments?
Of course there are the myriad of sensitivity training sessions that the modern day Willie and Joe must now sit through; classes like instructing soldiers in war zones like Afghanistan to be sensitive towards homosexual soldiers.
Imagine in WWII, Ike ordering US soldiers in the European Theater of Operations to undergo sensitivity training so they can get in touch with their feelings for gay Nazis.
As a former US Army officer, I am disgusted by the social engineering going on in the military, which serves two main purposes; to weaken the military and to divide it. The Army has become a garbage dump for crackpot left wing philosophies.
What can be done? Can anything be done at this point? The responsibility lies with the officers in charge. Most of them know this social engineering is destroying the US Army, but it appears that very few have the guts to do anything. Too many leaders are in the hunker down, check the block mode, hoping to stay out of the line of fire, while they wait for their slot at grad school where they can obtain a Masters in Peacekeeping Operations or a PhD in Modern Middle Eastern History.
Meanwhile, the US Army is on a deathwatch. Mark my words, if things keep going the way they are, the Army will be as effective in combat as a troop of Girl Scouts.
The Army’s leaders may think that their own silence is protecting their own careers. That may be true. But, their silence is condemning the US Army to eventual defeat and disaster in combat.
Hopefully, a few brave souls will finally take a stand against the social engineers.
But, don’t count on it.
We are doomed and the enemy knows it.
