Bureaucrats Plan to Destroy Special Forces With Affirmative Action

Hopefully we won’t be needing our special forces for long, because it won’t take liberals long to use Affirmative Action to destroy them:

Elite units in the military are by and large both white and male. Pentagon officials, however, are hoping for a major demographic shift, citing the benefits of diversity…

The benefits of diversity, which is an antonym for indispensable cohesion, are either political or fictional.

Data provided by each individual service to USA Today illustrates current disparities, which are most prominent in units like the Navy SEALs and the Army’s Green Berets. For instance, in the Army, blacks comprised 17 percent of the force in 2013, a figure slightly higher than their representation in the overall population. As the ranks start climbing, the numbers shift. Blacks amount to only 9.4 percent of officers in the military.

Since we are not allowed to mention the word “aptitude,” the only possible explanation is imaginary racism, which can only be fixed by inflicting real racism against more qualified whites.

In the Navy SEALs, just 2 percent are black, while Native Americans make up about 4 percent, or 99 SEALs.

Only 5.6 percent of enlisted Green Berets are black. But in the Air Force, among para-rescuers, the number drops even further down to .6 percent.

The Pentagon considers this to be a problem.

Obama has had years now to purge the Pentagon of soldiers who care about real problems, like our radically diminished capacity to win the sort of wars Obama’s projection of weakness is likely to force us to fight in the future.

The Pentagon in general has made bolstering diversity a major priority in the last several years, with Defense Secretary Ash Carter leading the charge with public pronouncements about the benefits of a diverse force and a recent decision to review the ban on transgender servicemembers.

You can’t blame Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Ali Khamenei, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for snickering gleefully.

The military, Carter has argued, needs to reflect the demographic makeup of the future.

That is, the white minority, homosexualized future our liberal ruling class has planned for us.

As such, the services have made a concerted effort to favor minorities, assigning more weight to race when considering officer promotions.

The effect on morale and retention of letting it be known that promotions are largely based on not being a non–cross-dressing white male should be obvious.

“Diversity makes us a better fighting force,” a senior defense official told USA Today. “It’s not simply a question of equity.”

What utter equum stercoris.

A country that has rejected the concept of merit in favor of political correctness is not going to be winning wars for very long.

The SEALs badge won’t always mean as much as it does now.

    I took early retirement from Civil Circus because of an overdose of “anybody but a white boy” along with using government time and resources, bulletin boards, etc. to advertise for queer sex clubs and grope-togethers.

    I’m sure a bunch of Prancing Nancy-boys will improve special forces immensely. Perhaps they can get the enemy laughing so hard we can just walk in and blow them away without any opposition.

    this ought to do it

    seriously, why any white man would join the military at this point is beyond me — they hate you, they only want you to do all the work while they promote anyone with a vagina or a suntan over you, they will send you out with ROE that are most accurately described as suicide, and now they want special forces who do the most dangerous assignments to go on missions with unqualified people who will get them killed — I say stop volunteering and make them bring back the draft — imagine the horror of leftist suburbanites when their precious snowflake is drafted and has to defer their matriculation at Harvard

  • Whoare”they”?

    Liberal mantra, if it works destroy it, if you can’t destroy it ban it, if you can’t ban it, diversify it till it dies

    I have read and have no idea if it is true that blacks do not sign up to try to make special forces — that they don’t want too — this may be like the poor enlisted women who don’t want to be in combat but female officers and progressive bureaucrats want it

    How is this a bad thing? I’m glad for anything that purges the military of competent and dedicated people. This government considers you its enemy. It will eventually use force of arms against you. Be glad it is stupid enough to willingly make itself less competent.

  • chelovek5

    Any details on whether the “quota hires” are qualified? I’d imagine they probably meet the fitness/skill requirements, so it’s probably just a matter of qualified minorities being hired in place of qualified whites. Which isn’t fair, but isn’t a huge problem in terms of the Seals being effective. Plus, 17% vs. 13% isn’t really anything to get worked up about IMO. I would worry more about people who can’t pass the test (coughcoughmostwomencoughcough) rather than +4% too many minorities.

    Back in the dim and misty I was a member of the 10th Special Forces Group at Ft. Devens MA. I can only remember ONE black guy (he was in Signal Company) and one oriental E-7 in Group S-4 (we called him the “Samurai Supply Man”…lol). A couple hispanics and the rest white. Even so we were more concerned with the mission and never gave it a thought. I guess that means we’re all racists.

    Oh yeah, btw they really didn’t give a shit about your skin color at SFQC Phase I. They were equal opportunity hardasses.

    But…but…hungjumper….how come the Special Forces discriminates against gays, lesbians, transgendered, and the sexually confused? Why don’t they have any lesbian team leaders? Why can’t they use muted pastels for their cammies and show some fashion sense?

    Seems to me somebody in the White House has forgotten what you guys are expected to do for a living.

    On a more serious note I’m sure my ODA would have been more effective had it contained a lesbian midget, a transgender black encounter group specialist, and a one-nutted blind Armenian troll.

    Yeah, well. Anybody not see this coming from the african dicktater? If they have sixteen ton welfare queens in the Navy SEALS, maybe you should join ISIS? There’s no point in joining the african merikwan army now. Only a fool fights in a burning house. Isn’t that what Klingons say? I guess those Klingons are a lot smarter than the Gubmint. Pass the Cheese, boys. Its getting hot in here.

    Since WW II, the only war the US has won is the first Persian Gulf War, so America’s military collapse has deep roots. Destroying SOCOM will not begin the destruction; it merely completes it.

    Consider all the war mongers and war criminals in the Pentagon, State Department and neocon commentariat, an ineffective military might be a good thing.

    In the early 1980’s I took the PACE federal civil service exam and maxed all sections. In the period of eligibility I got 3 interviews and no jobs. I found out later that unless you were a preferred group you did not get hired. This is hardly something that is new.

    Correct me if I am wrong but, won’t it be much more difficult to perform both the pool and sea training portions of BUDs in a skirt, just sayin! Another consideration might be, wouldn’t water logged falsie’s make you top heavy. Wouldn’t allowances need to be made? Problems like this are going to need to be addressed. My point is, diversity is going to introduce some unique problems that are going to require some fore thought. To my alma mater: GO NAVY!

    Actually, the proper abbreviation, according to the Navy on official DON web sites is SEALS, all caps. Thanks for trying though.
