Skip to comments.The Pentagon sees its mission as social justice, not America’s defense

The American military, which gets 53% of the federal budget left over after it’s done paying for mandatory entitlement programs, exists for one reason and one reason only: To defend America from foreign enemies. If it can’t do that, we may as well get rid of it. The Pentagon, however, doesn’t seem interested in buffing up its only (not its primary, its only) responsibility. Instead, the hard left careerists who work there see it as a vehicle for social justice experiments. In service to this fetish, the military is once again going all-in on transgenderism.
Regardless transgenderism’s real cause (mental illness or easily treatable hormonal imbalances), modern American leftism has opted for a different approach: It pretends that people can magically change gender (meaning that a person of one sex can embrace cheap, 1950’s era stereotypes of the opposite sex). Then, “to give artistic verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative,” leftists encourage these poor deluded souls to have horribly mutilating surgery and ingest dangerous chemicals that leave them sterile and expose them to unnecessary lifetime risks of cancer and heart disease. (And remember, please, there’s no science behind any of this.)
Summed up, going forward, our military will not only allow openly transgender people to serve, but it will also impose on taxpayers the costs of their surgery and hormone treatments. For transgender people without any insurance to cover those costs, if they can hack basic training, a two-year enlistment may well be worth it.

Wish that was an April fools joke.
The seeds were sown long ago.
It is commonly observed that racial integration in the military was a big success story that came out of WWII. Executive Order 9981 was issued on July 26, 1948, by President Harry S. Truman. This executive order abolished discrimination “on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin” in the United States Armed Forces.
It made sense. And, in part, from this we get the Civil Rights struggle. Hey, the military handled integration — why not the rest of society?
And I think from that, we get a long tradition of social engineering in the military to push all of society in a Progressive direction. Winning wars? [shrug] Who cares about that? We’ve got more transgenders than the Russians, so we’re winning.
Let the Left fund it.
Start voting against military appropriations.
“A Global Force For Good.”
The cancer that will kill the republic
Where have all the warriors gone?
Yep, and the EVIL lgbtq/etc.!
Also women in combat, etc. will keep destroying/defeat/weaken/etc. our military!
We have very serious positions occupied by very unserious people who are in the process of seriously screwing things up.
The one and only job of the military is to kill people and blow up their stuff. No more, no less. Political correctness, if allowed to continue, will be the death of this once-great country.
The full concentration sweep going on RIGHT NOW in the DoD “standown” so the can remove “extremism” should be a huge wakeup to everyone!!!
That’s Obama and he is succeeding with assistance from Republicans.
Clarifying= worried about them outlawing Christians, Patriots, Conservatives, true libertarians...
Yeh, the Left is very much aware that our military rank and file, NCO’s, junior officers, are overwhelmingly Conservative, especially among the elite combat units. Additionally, since the elimination of the draft the military has been trending toward a legacy force; meaning that the demographic is made of relatives of past veterans, dads, moms, brothers, sisters, grandparents, etc. consequently, they can’t be counted to take action against civil unrest or resistance.
A good man that has worked for me most of the time for 30 years just went to the wedding of his son a couple weeks back only his “son” was masquerading as the “woman” or “bride”.
Turns out his x wife had been for years going along with the mixed up kid in his mental ramblings about “feeling” like a woman instead of “leading” the kid to other side of this river.
When you lose sight of your primary reason for existence you immediately become an ineffective organization. WE CANNOT AFFORD AN INEFFECTIVE ARMED SERVICES. The Bin Hiden administration is stuck on stupid and it is going to cost us all dearly I am afraid. Our once proud military is being purged of warriors not unlike the way Stalin did it prior to WW II. It cost 25 million Russian lives to correct the error. Kinda makes covid look like romper room doesn’t it.
