Back in 2003 a Muslim woman sued the Florida DMV because she wanted her driver’s license photo to be taken while she was wearing a niqab, or veil, which would have covered her entire face other than her eyes. I remember thinking how absurd such a request was. Not that the veil was absurd, but rather the idea of taking a picture specifically intended to identify someone with all of their identifying features covered. The request obviated the basic reason of why the picture was being taken in the first place.
A year later, again out of Florida, the North Miami police department dropped its requirement that police officers know how to swim. Apparently because they were having a hard time finding qualified black applicants who could swim, rather than teach otherwise qualified black applicants to swim, the police did away with the requirement.
The purpose of the DMV issuing drivers’ licenses is to make it possible to identify someone by looking at them and the purpose of a police force is to protect and defend the people within a particular jurisdiction, and in cities surrounded by water that might require swimming. Anything that defeats the very purpose of an organization is probably a bad idea from the perspective of accomplishing that organization’s mission.
Which brings us to Joe Biden’s Pentagon. Building on Barack Obama’s turning NASA into a Muslim outreach program, Joe Biden has decided to turn the Pentagon into a monument to wokeness. While the Pentagon has been moving in the woke direction for years (as demonstrated by a deadly political correctness, the repeal of DADT, women in combat and picking up the tab for sex change operations) Joe Biden has turned the military into a full fledged social program.
So how can Joe Biden beat Obama’s deadly despicable modifications to the Rules of Engagement? How about pregnant women in military cockpits? Yes, you read that right. Joe Biden has the American military “Designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits and updating requirements for their hairstyles… It will take an intensity of purpose and mission to really change the culture and habits that cause women to leave the military.”
If the legion of stumbles Joe Biden has already made in his short time in office haven’t convinced you of such, that sentiment alone should demonstrate clearly that he is not a serious man.
The role of the military is to protect and defend the nation and its allies as well as enforce treaties the United States has entered into, whether that’s ensuring safe passage of shipping in domestic and international waters or making preemptive strikes against terrorists planning on striking American or allied targets. All of those things and more involve training to kill, and possibly actually killing enemies. Military is deadly business as large numbers of lives are at stake. Not only are there hundreds of thousands of Americans under arms who actively or potentially put their lives in danger to protect the nation on a daily basis, but there are millions of people at home and abroad whose lives are impacted by the success or failure or American military operations.
And so, in this universe where the Chinese are willing to operate the open secret of concentration camps filled with their own citizens, are claiming sovereignty over virtually the entire South China Sea, are building outposts around the world, cornering the market on strategically critical rare earth minerals and turbo charging the world’s largest military, Joe Biden wants to make sure pregnant pilots have uniforms that fit. In a world where nuclear weapons are in more, and more unstable hands than ever before, where bioweapons like the Coronavirus can kill millions and terrorism can strike anywhere anytime, one of Joe Biden’s first acts was to lift the ban on transgender enlistments. Joe Biden is an unserious man who has no place as Commander in Chief and in any rational world he wouldn’t be allowed within a thousand miles of the nuclear football. But there he is sitting in the White House – sadly as the result of Democrat fraud – and turning our military into a woke petri dish.
And there’s a reason he can do it… Most people think of the military as jets in dogfights, solders storming a den of bad guys or ships bombing a coastline. It is all of those things and more, but the reality is the military spends an overwhelming majority of its time preparing, planning and training rather than actually fighting… which is why leftists think they can turn it into a series of social experiments. It’s easy to measure quotas and enforce the latest politically correct policies when no one is actually shooting at or trying to kill you. Importantly, that work is where troops learn the skills necessary to survive actual combat and lay the groundwork for success in actual war. But to the left in America doesn’t care about that. They’re more interested in the optics of diversity and inclusiveness than they are in mission success and are willing to sacrifice the latter for the former. And to the degree the military focuses on those social issues, counts pigments or genders or tries to manipulate political allegiances, the less effective the training is and at the end of the day, the less capable the military is to accomplish its primary mission.
Osama Bid Laden said: “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.” Joe Biden is signaling to the world the American military is anything but a strong horse and he’s leaving no ambiguity about it. The world sees this, our allies see this, and most importantly our enemies see this. People around the world recognize that the United States has been the vanguard of freedom for a century and ushered in a period of economic prosperity unprecedented in human history. But at the same time, most rational people recognize that nothing good lasts forever. If the United States is literally telling the world that our military is focused on maternity flight suits and trans enlistments while the borg of China is expanding and strengthening its military and economic reach to unprecedented levels, we shouldn’t be surprised to see American influence deflate like a week old balloon animal as allies and friends turn their allegiances toward the strong horse. When the left’s dream of diminished American influence comes to pass the irony will be that the tag on the boot standing on their necks will read “Made in woke America”.

the Marines of today are different than those of the 1960’s and Vietnam. political correctness is not battle wise. the joint chief of staff are so woked up that reading briefings is comical. during the first impeachment hearings, the woke press and congress was so consumed with garbage that the military and media overlooked the fact that china had built two more islands for further perimeter expansion. the half life of a second lieutenant in a hot LZ in Nam was 15 min. one can only imagine a transgender’s half life in a hot LZ? the gay muslin terrorist obama is responsible for a great part of this decay. recall this socialist tyrants’ “Tier Three Transgender Training” in 2017? sexual predator’s do not offer veggies to children but candy. the new democratic commicrats have lured America into decay. when a nation can not be protected by its military forces, foreign possession of that country is very easy.
Today’s military and the joint chief of staff are a a flee ridden, mange, useless horse like the pedophile faux pres. waiting to die.
So, how many G’s can a fetus withstand? Or, is this just another form of the Democrats favorite past time, abortion?
No doubt some actually believe that is important and that is who this is played to. But the true goal is to weaken the military and the nation’s ability to defend itself and protect others.
Everything Obama did was to weaken the nation, either so the mean old United States couldn’t “oppress” anyone else or to make it easier for his favored socialists to overtake us. Even if the true goal was the former, the end result will be the latter. And faithful idiot Obama is simply carrying out orders.
The Democ-Rats are always either using our Military as Peace Keepers for the Useless Nations remember a Draft Dodger and Traitor(Bill Clinton)tried to force that Military youth to wear a UN Blue Helmet and now Biden the Stupid wants even more of what the UN Globalists scum suckers want
Rich Higgins noted in his work that under the gay terrorist pres. obama plundered the military with “political correctness” and corruption. He notes ” political correctness is a weapon against reason and critical thinking. This weapon functions as the enforcement mechanism of diversity narratives that seek to implement cultural marxism.” if you doubt this, ask Gen. Carter Ham and Rear Adm. Chuck
Gaouette about the corruption of the gay pres and pc. I will give you a hint, they were both terminated because of obama’s pc and corruption. the gay ex pres is a terrorist
Take a look at China’s army on the march:
Now think of the USA’s army marching under Biden.
These so-called leaders should read Tom Kratman’s book, “The Amazon Legion”.
Not only is it a great read on on it’s own, it’s a realistic and
knowledgeable study of women in combat and the training necessary to make them combat effective.
And the associated problems.
I have never seen a logical explanation as to how diversity, as practiced by the left, is in and of itself, any kind of strength.
the first site contains a snap photograph of the “Pink Army” in china. they would make an American platoon look very bad very quickly. the last photo of a two star, overweight, unfit physical condition is a disgrace to the US. the expression on her face is “what am I doing here/”
