When asked about how the army plans on addressing the concerns of its soldiers while dealing with ongoing recruitment struggles, Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth emphasized the importance of “positive command climates and inclusion,” and rebuked accusations that the Army is becoming “woke.” […]
“You know, we get criticized, frankly, sometimes, for being woke,” said the secretary. “I’m not sure what woke means, I think woke means a lot of different things to different people. But first of all I would, if woke means, you know, we are not focused on war fighting, we are not focused on readiness, that doesn’t reflect what I see at installations all around the country or overseas when I go and visit.”
“But I think we do have a wide range of soldiers in our army, and we’ve got to make them all feel included, and that’s why a lot of our diversity, equity, and inclusion programs are important,” concluded Wormuth. […]
During the press conference, Secretary Wormuth stated that among the things that she believes are “most important,” are “keeping the Army apolitical and keeping it out of the culture wars.” …

Well, at least she admits she doesn’t know what “woke” means.
Fort Hood is about to become Fort Cavazos. If that isn’t “woke”, I don’t know what the hell is.
If you don’t know what “woke” means, you are likely woke.
“”diversity, equity, and inclusion programs””
And she’s not SURE what WOKE means?
Secretary of the Army Christine
Good grief! Openly admitting the dumbing down on our combat capability and doubling down on the stupidity!!!!
Southerners can tell her what woke is but she wouldn’t understand their culture of heroes the government has torn down.
I thought the focus was supposed to be white rage, personal pronouns and climate change.
Whenever any Govt. official says they ‘don’t know’ what the term WOKE means, that’s usually how you know they’re actions are tied to WOKE standards and demands. Don’t be naive Ma’am, you know good and well what that term implies.
That was evidenced by your throwing good servicemen out of the military because they refused a Covid shot.
You didn’t even grant them the respect of ‘religious exemption”. That means nothing to you. The Government is your only religion.
Yes, while emphasizing the woke programs that are detrimental to the military.
Emphasizing the anti-white term of diversity IS going woke. That is how absolutely woke the DoD is.
I know, I know, I know the answer. The Army needs another climate survey that’s tied to CAC cards to ensure everyone participate. They will claim your answers are anonymous yet accessing the survey requires CAC (it’s an ID card requiring a PIN just like your debit card).
Having a female Secretary of the Army is a huge indication that the charges are true, and is part of the problem.
Every general and admiral should be relieved of duty.
Christine Wormuth is a pathetic liar
Christine, the programs you are emphasizing for our army should be ordered in what I see as the outcome they are sure to produce. That would be , Diversity, Inclusion and Equity or DIE Programs.
Per the title “Army Secretary Denies Army Is Becoming ‘Woke,’ Emphasizes ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Programs’”, the first half is in complete disagreement with the second half.
She looks like a Woke Joke
IOW - Woke.
