I admit that I sort of just rolled my eyes and didn’t care when Richard Torres-Estrada was tapped to be the Pentagon’s first diversity and inclusion chief. He’s a ‘woke’ czar—and he didn’t last long. I mean you cannot make this up. Days after his appointment, Torres-Estrada's social media history was revealed, and it was what you usually see from unhinged coastal liberals concerning Trump derangement syndrome. Yes, you bet Hitler comparisons were made. The inclusion director pretty much said our former president was a Nazi. Even though he’s no longer president, Trump is still finding a way to take out his enemies in the Biden administration. but the irony is thick here regarding the job title and Torres-Estrada’s eventual fate (via Fox News):
The Pentagon's new diversity chief has been "reassigned" amid an investigation of past social media posts including comparing former President Trump to Adolf Hitler, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday.
The U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has been investigating the social media activity of Richard Torres-Estrada, days after he was announced as their new head of diversity and inclusion. Torres-Estrada's Facebook account is currently blocked from public view, but it was still viewable in time for Fox News' Tucker Carlson to include images of some of his posts during his show on Friday.
A spokesman said Torres-Estrada has not been fired but rather "assigned to other duties pending the results of the investigation."
"The Commander has directed an investigation to look into the facts surrounding Mr. Torres-Estrada’s selection," said Ken McGraw, a spokesman for the US Special Operations Command. "It would be inappropriate to comment on specifics until the evaluation is complete."
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby confirmed the existence of the investigation during a Monday press briefing in response to a question about Torres-Estrada's past posts. One social media posting juxtaposed a picture of Trump holding a Bible next to an image of Hitler.
Oh, these people—I’m telling you. We may despise them and everything they stand for—the feeling is mutual—but they are exceptionally entertaining, especially when they get a face full of their own woke buckshot.
Comparing a former president to Hitler in such a position might end up with you getting reassigned for sure. Yet, let’s not shy away from the larger issues -- the ‘woke’ trainings our military is being subjected to, along with the political correctness nonsense -- both of which are extremely disturbing. Is our military more concerned about intersectionality or protecting us from foreign threats?
So, is Dick’s MAIDEN NAME Torres?
SOCOM folks are usually pretty busy. They ain’t got time for this shit.
So he wasn’t ‘inclusive’ enough?....................
Who is Richard Torres-Estrada’s boyfriend who worked to get him assigned to that position?
“How has America’s military managed to survive all previous military engagements without a Diversity and Inclusion Chief?”
I thought the whole point of Special Operations was to be exclusive.
He is being “reassigned” for comparing President t?rump to Hitler? Isn’t that what the woke totalitarians doe for breakfast each morning?
What was the problem? Was he not hateful enough to suit them?
It is completely hypocritical of the wokies to reassign him for doing what they all do 24/7, and it is hypocritical but predictable for Facebook to block his page.
And we all know that he would never have gotten the position if his name were Richard Towers-Street.
He is being “reassigned” for comparing President Trump to Hitler? Isn’t that what the woke totalitarians doe for breakfast each morning?

I am struck by the irony of people who constantly comp[are President Trump to Hitler “reassigining” someone for comparing Presidnet Trump to Hitler.
There is no group of people less diverse and less inclusive than the diversity and inclusion crowd.
The military is a clownshow now. They decide to appoint the first diversity officer in SOCOM, and didn’t even vet his social media?
The military will have to get it’s ass handed to it by China before they can reform.
This is utter incompetence at SOCOM along with the new woke lunacy.
They did not do the most basic look at his background. They saw Senior Executive credentials and grabbed him without looking. This is a joke, but this type of incompetence at SOCOM cannot help but filter downwards. We have already seen it in a few cases. The flying clowncar CH-47 reaction team in Afghanistan packed with SEALS as a substitute for sound military CAS and artillery support because of treasonous ROE, the SEALs murdering a SF soldier who was gonna rat out their dope deal. A SEAL turning tranny and SEAL leaders prosecuting a fighting SEAL. The existence of a secret SOCOM base being revealed in an exercise app heat map showing the soldiers workout routines!
It’s got to be awful for the dedicated SF and SEAL men to train well and stay alive on operations. But it is exceedingly difficult to have a first rate operation when the highest levels of those units are fully corrupted.
They have had some amazing successes in rescues and raids in the last few years, but their world is going to get bad soon. I feel bad for the good guys there. The best leaders have been hounded away and vetted out of the service.
SOCOM and SEAL and SF used to be held in awe by Americans. I am convinced the appointment of a diversity officer was not for any real function. It was merely meant to degrade America’s confidence and pride in some of our very best men.
The Divisive Agenda is a tactic used to divide and conquer. Creating warring factions diverts attention from the looting and pillaging of the Barbaríans within the gates.
