A Drill Sergeant in Our Woke Military

Meanwhile, as our Chinese adversaries race ahead of us by firing nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles against which we have no defense, our military recruits wear masks outdoors in neurotic terror of the ChiCom virus and undergo race-based left-wing indoctrination. God help us if this video is on the level:

The camel’s head is in the tent. Next come marching cadences in honor of Louis Farrakhan and George Floyd.

Anyone not on board with fighting for moonbattery is subject to purging.

Moonbat Explains Why US Military Must Be Abolished

For the sake of fairness, let’s let a leftist explain her point of view. Progressives only control CNN/ABC/CBS/NBC/MSNBC/PBS/NPR and every other media outlet except for a handful of rebellious outliers that are probably living on borrowed time. We don’t want them to feel that they are being silenced.

Most of the leftists on TV are difficult to take seriously, but this woman maintains a relatively solemn demeanor while explaining why the US military must be abolished for the sake of the weather:

One strategy for bringing about the end of US military would be to place moonbats like Mark Milley and Lloyd Austin in charge of it. Eventually, it will rot from the head like a fish until it becomes liquified by putrefaction and dribbles away to nothing.

Sikh Demands Total Submission From Marines

Discipline, regimentation, cohesion. All are crucial to a fighting force. But they are not needed by the US Marines, now that the purpose of the American military is not to win wars but to advance liberal social engineering objectives. That’s why Lt Sukhbir Toor, whose parents are immigrants from India, is allowed to grow his hair out and wear a beard and turban instead of complying with the dress code.

Toor still has to present himself like a Marine to go into combat or participate in a ceremonial unit. So, with the help of the Sikh Coalition, he is suing.

The Marines having bent over backward to placate Toor is brushed away:

The Sikh Coalition said this amounted to an “incomplete and flawed accommodation … which recognizes his right to maintain his articles of faith but still imposes undue restrictions on his free exercise of religion.”

Imagine if a Christian demanded similar exemptions and accommodations. The laughter would be audible in outer space.

As for discipline, regimentation, cohesion, et cetera, Amrith Kaur Aakre of the Sikh Coalition barks that “outdated notions of uniformity and unit cohesion … are not reflective of the diversity of our nation.”

How did Toor get in the Marines in the first place? He cut his hair and shaved.

That won’t be required in the future, as we progress as a society toward maximum wokeness. Recruits will probably be entitled to bring their emotional support puppies with them to boot camp.

Before long, however, new requirements will be applied. Anyone wanting to serve in the military will have to know Chinese, so as to be able to follow orders.

Stuart Scheller Imprisoned for Demanding Accountability

It was either treason or incompetence taken to levels never seen previously. Yet there has been no accountability for Biden’s catastrophically bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan. On the contrary, the only person punished (other than the Americans senselessly allowed to be killed or left behind, the military dogs abandoned, and the innocent civilians killed in a “righteous” drone strike) has been Marine Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Scheller, who was relieved of command after calling for accountability. He resigned his commission. Now he has been imprisoned:

Scheller first rose to internet stardom by posting a video to Facebook blasting military leaders for the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, questioning their command decisions on the events leading up to and during the final evacuation effort.

Scheller would go on to release several more videos, generating praise and controversy while drawing the ire of military leadership. Eventually, he was told by superiors to stop posting to social media altogether, an order he immediately ignored by posting about the gag order.

At the end of his last video, he indicated that he knew where he was headed, saying, “Col Emmel please have the MPs waiting for me at 0800 on Monday. I’m ready for jail.”

Scheller is “currently in pre-trial confinement,” a spokesperson for Training and Education Command said of the officer’s status.

No wonder New York Governor Kathy Hochul wants to replace healthcare workers who won’t obey intrusive Covid decrees to be replaced with the military. That way, anyone who needs an attitude adjustment can be thrown in the brig.

Exploiting Covid to Purge Military

Obama purged the officer corps, leaving people of Mark Milley’s caliber to oversee the greatest military in the world. Right after taking power, leftist Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin called for a military-wide stand-down to purge the rest of the armed services. The mission is to remove those likely to be loyal to the Constitution and not likely to be willing to fire on American citizens on behalf of the ongoing hard left power grab.

Given that the military has always been a stronghold of patriotism, Austin et al. have a difficult job. Fortunately for them, Covid is here to help:

Four branches of the U.S. armed forces have announced COVID vaccination deadlines under a Pentagon mandate to jab the entire military, with the army becoming the latest to set the date.

Anybody who puts up a fuss will be flagged as problematic.

Per the Army Times recent report, 11 service members died of COVID complications in August, followed immediately by another death in the first few days of September, which brought the military’s total death count to 43. That, per the outlet, accounts for a COVID mortality rate among the military at 0.02 percent.

Hardly a crisis. Whether all 43 actually died primarily of Covid is doubtful.

For young servicemembers who presumably do not suffer from obesity or debilitating medical conditions, vaccination makes little sense. For those who have already had Covid, it makes no sense whatsoever — except for political reasons.

[H]igh-ranking staff, such as commanders, command sergeants majors, first sergeants, and officers in Command Select List (CSL), who refuse to get vaccinated and have not filed for the exemptions, will face immediate suspension from their leadership role. … explains that soldiers who refuse to comply with the vaccination rules will be counseled by their chain of command and, eventually, may face relief of duties and discharge.

The purge continues.

Military CRT Brainwashing Extends to 3-Year-Olds

Mark Milley and Lloyd Austin proved in Afghanistan that they can’t even lose wars competently, much less win them. However, under Biden and his handlers, war isn’t their job. They are there to promote the regime’s ideology, critical race theory, according to which we are not individuals but merely interchangeable representatives of our race, good races being darker than the bad race, which is white.

Austin advanced the mission from the moment he took office, with a military-wide stand-down to purge the ranks of “extremists” resistance to CRT ideology. Milley has advanced it by brainwashing West Point cadets and barking about “white rage.”

Although most Americans probably see both of them as useless stooges, they are succeeding so well at their task of imposing ideological homogenization that even 3-year-olds are subjected to indoctrination:

The goal of critical race theory and critical theory more broadly is to employ cultural Marxism to destroy America as it was founded so as to replace it with a totally different country that complies with an oligarchical collectivist conception of utopia.

Letting people devoted to our nation’s destruction take control of the military will not end well.

Stuart Scheller Resigns Commission but Continues to Lead

The story is only beginning regarding Stuart Scheller, the Marine Lieutenant Colonel who fell on his sword by demanding accountability from the left-wing political hacks at the top of the command structure (e.g., Lloyd Austin, Mark Milley) for the bloody debacle in Afghanistan that killed 11 Marines, a Navy corpsman, and an Army soldier after our Taliban enemies were bizarrely entrusted to provide security for Americans.

Scheller was promptly relieved of his command. He then resigned his commission, ending a brilliant 17-year career during which he received a V device for combat valor and a Bronze Star. He is forfeiting all entitlements, including medical care and a potential $2 million pension fund.

As a private citizen with nothing to lose, Scheller is speaking even more bluntly:

“I demand accountability, at all levels. If we don’t get it, I’m bringing it.”

He also quoted Thomas Jefferson, saying “every generation needs a revolution.”

While the bloated, incompetent, leftist-subverted establishment gasps in horrified amazement,

Scheller’s family and former troops say they’re not surprised the officer sacrificed his career in order to tell his truth.

As his father Stuart Sr puts it,

“He has put his life on the line for fellow Marines so putting his career on the line like this does not surprise us.”

The Founding Fathers would have recognized Stuart Scheller as an American. That isn’t true of many these days. If the purges that started under Obama and continue under Biden achieve their objective, it won’t be true of anyone in the armed forces.

Scheller’s follow-up video is an inspiration:

You can see why Marines would follow this guy into combat.

“Follow me, and we will bring the whole f***ing system down. … We’re just getting started.”

Needless to say, the apparatchiks running the system didn’t like that. Anyone who remembers the Soviet practice of locking dissidents in mental asylums will find this ominous:

Scheller has certainly established his honor. Otherwise, this was a futile gesture — unless enough of us have the courage to follow him. In that case, there is still hope that we can pull the country out of its tailspin.

Stuart Scheller Is Relieved of Command

Don’t blame US troops. A fish rots from the head — although it won’t help your military career to point this out.

The problem with training people to become fearless in battle is that they can become fearless in other respects as well. Marine Lt Col Stuart Scheller is a case in point as he falls on his sword for his country:

The Blaze reports:

Scheller posted a blistering video to Facebook and LinkedIn on Thursday. Scheller, who has been in the USMC for 17 years, questioned the decision-making by top U.S. military leadership, including Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley, and Marine Commandant Gen. David H. Berger.

Like US Space Force Lt Col Matthew Lohmeier, who warned that Marxists are subjecting troops to hard left brainwashing and subverting the armed forces, Scheller was relieved of his command for posting this video.

The top ranks of the military are infested with left-wing political hacks. This is why we are no match for the Taliban — leave alone China. It bears repeating:

I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion. - Alexander the Great

America has an army of lions led by a senile moonbat. We may have a limited amount of time to correct this unacceptable state of affairs.

Woke Soldier Eager to Shoot Americans

Immediately upon taking his position, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin proclaimed a military stand-down for an ideological purge of those who may not be on board with the authoritarian left’s fundamental transformation of America. The purpose was to finish the work begun by Obama’s purge of the officer corps. If Democrats succeed, the only people left in the military will sound like this sergeant:

Democrats openly push an agenda likely to lead to another civil war (e.g., seizing unconstitutional federal control of elections to reduce them to farces, packing the Supreme Court). They do this because they expect to win, since they control the military and have been systematically subverting it. A victory would allow them to move directly to a postconstitutional Marxist system of government, with those deemed likely to resist incarcerated in gulags.

The humiliating defeat in Afghanistan has taught them nothing about asymmetrical warfare. So long as Americans are clear on who the enemy is, we will defeat it — and Democrats have been making it vividly clear.

Iwo Jima Photo Mocked by US-Armed Taliban

Democrats spent 2020 egging on Black Lives Matter and Antifa, who attacked American heritage by destroying hundreds of statues of the giants who define our nation. Democrat action in Afghanistan has added insult to injury by subjecting our heritage to ridicule:

Propaganda videos posted this week on channels affiliated with the Taliban show soldiers in the little-known Badri 313 Battalion carrying U.S. and U.S. ally-made weapons and gear that appear to be stolen from allied militaries while patrolling parts of Kabul.

In one propaganda photo, members of the Badri 313 Battalion are seen hoisting a Taliban flag in a similar fashion to the six U.S. Marines who raised the U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945.

Looks like Taliban savages may know more about American history than American schoolchildren do these days:

Has liberal propaganda eaten away at our self-respect to the point that we can no longer experience anger? If so, Democrats will get away with creating this state of affairs.

Medals Don’t Mean What They Used To

Eisenhower defeated the Nazis. Democrat apparatchik Mark Milley imposed critical race theory, designated Americans as the enemy, no doubt helped purge nonleftists from the military, trained and supervised the Afghan army, and participated in a catastrophic, humiliating rout by barbarians. So of course, Milley gets the chestful of shiny gewgaws:

American currency isn’t the only thing our moonbat rulers are inflating to worthlessness.

Possible Explanation for the Afghan Army’s Collapse

Considering that we spent 20 years training and showering $billions upon the Afghan army, how is it that it lost without noticeable resistance to the Taliban that it vastly outnumbered? Although everyone but Biden knew this would happen, it seems strange, considering that the Taliban consists of backwater savages who do not enjoy state of the art training or lavishly expensive equipment (until now that they have captured ours). This might help explain it:

The Afghan army was trained and supervised by General Mark Milley, the US Commander that insisted before Congress a month ago that he is fine with military officers and soldiers being indoctrinated with the divisive racist critical race theory which will leave brothers in arms looking suspiciously at each other, questioning the moral strength of their racist country as they go into battle against lethal enemies.

A low-wattage left-wing apparatchik who considers the greatest threat to America to be Republicans is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Secretary of Defense is cut of the same defective cloth. They both take orders from the handlers of the one person no one could possibly respect, Joe Biden, who is infamous for always being wrong.

Until this state of affairs is corrected, any military development that is not a total debacle will come as a surprise.

Navy Likely to Reinstate Photos for Race-Based Promotion

Racial discrimination used to be bad, because it worked in favored of whites. Now it is good, because it works against whites. An example from our fundamentally transformed hyperwoke military:

According to the chief of naval personnel, removing photos from promotion boards has hurt the Navy’s diversity goal.

“I think we should consider reinstating photos in selection boards,” Vice Adm. John Nowell Jr. said Tuesday at a panel discussion on diversity at the annual Sea Air Space conference at a convention center outside of Washington, D.C.

Nowell said that when the photos were removed, diversity declined.

This is because without the photos, promotion was more likely to be based on merit instead of identity group, in violation of the ideology of the ruling party, which dictates that we must be judged by the color of our skin rather than the content of our character or our job performance.

Then-Defense Secretary Mark Esper barred the use of photos in promotion boards in July 2020 as part of a series of steps aimed at eliminating “discrimination, prejudice and bias in all ranks” to promote equal opportunity, morale and the readiness of the force.

Looks like the brass doesn’t want to ban discrimination, prejudice, and bias after all. At least, the current brass doesn’t.

The Marines are also looking into bringing back the photos, so as to facilitate race-based promotion.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who implemented a military-wide stand-down to purge the armed forces of “white supremacism” immediately after taking office, confirms that the Department of Defense “will lead with our values, building diversity, equity, and inclusion into all aspects of our work and in everything we do.” Inflicting systemic racism and sexism on white men is Priority #1.

To get an idea of what promotion by identity group will do to military competence, have a look at the Biden Administration, where key figures like Kamala Harris were selected explicitly on the basis of identity group.

An inept military will not get the better of the ChiComs, no matter how many brownie points the liberal establishment gives it for diversity.

Lloyd Austin, Cringe-Inducing Covid Coward

Meanwhile, as the ChiComs plot world domination, the US Secretary of Defense presents this fearless front to the world:

The both masked and face-shielded, fist-bumping, and no doubt thoroughly vaccinated Lloyd Austin is at hardly more risk from Covid than he is from the “white supremacists” he has been purging from the military.

The USA under Democrat rule is not an easy country to take seriously. We are in the position of the former toughest guy on the cell block who is revealed to have suddenly turned into a pansy. Thanks to not having a credible President or Secretary of Defense, we will soon find ourselves in a position where we need both more than ever.
