Virginia Military Institute Succumbs to Moonbattery

Outside the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington stands a statue called Virginia Mourning Her Dead. It honors 10 cadets from the school killed in the Battle of New Market in 1864. Virginia should spare a few tears for the school itself. VMI alumni include the great George Patton. But as moonbattery continues to corrode and subvert both education and the military, the school has succumbed:

“How have you benefited from adherence to your gender role?” a VMI diversity training presentation asks. The resources for it included journal articles like, “How Military Service Members Reinforce Hegemonic Masculinity.” There’s not meant to be any room for “hegemonic masculinity” at an institution whose students experience spartan living and the warrior tradition.

Imagine George Patton’s response to effete moonbats denouncing masculinity in the military. But Patton and his kind have been replaced. They fought so that a generation of liberal weenies might flourish in secure softness.

Cultural Marxism is a weapon designed by leftists to divide and conquer America by turning people against its core population. At VMI, this is packaged as diversity/equity/inclusion (DEI).

To see what DEI means, just go to VMI’s DEI resources list assembled by Lt. Col. Ticen and Maj. Carroll that includes Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “Between the World and Me” which states that the 9/11 firefighters and police officers “were not human to me” and Ibram X Kendi’s “How To Be an Antiracist” which contends that, “The most threatening racist movement is not the alt right’s unlikely drive for a white ethnostate but the regular American’s drive for a race-neutral one.” …

The resources also include not only the 1619 Project, which claims that America was built on racism, but also “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” and Howard Zinn.

The idea is to turn the officer corps into a liberal arts faculty lounge. Small wonder that VMI enrollment has fallen by 25%.

For the first time the Heritage Foundation’s index of American military strength has ranked us as ‘weak’. The index warns that the Army “remains ‘weak’ in capacity with only 62 percent of the force it should have”. …

As Heritage and the Wall Street Journal note, “From 2005 to 2020, the U.S. fleet grew to 296 warships from 291, while China’s navy grew to 360 from 216.” The Navy however is focused on inclusion and diversity. The situation at the Air Force is much worse with the Heritage report warning that “the munitions stockpile” would probably “not support a peer-level fight that lasted more than a few weeks”. But the Air Force is also focused on diversity and inclusion.

The Navy is rated as very weak in capacity and weak in readiness. The Air Force ranks as very weak due to “problems with pilot production and retention, an extraordinarily small amount of time in the cockpit for pilots, and a fleet of aircraft that continues to age”. The Heritage index warns that “there is little doubt that it would struggle in war with a peer competitor”. …

It’s no coincidence that the ‘wokest’ service branches also show up as the weakest. …

We’re not ready for a serious fight and if history is anything to go by, that is exactly when we are likely to find ourselves in a war.

Virginia should weep for America’s future.
