Commentary: The U.S. Military Is Just Another Woke Institution

Tucker Carlson spurred a much-needed reexamination of the military in March. His monologue criticizing the military’s political correctness drew a more furious response from top brass than any foreign threat is likely to do. The generals’ response only affirmed Tucker’s points about the degraded state of our armed forces. Why do generals—both current and retired—feel the need to condemn civilians who question the wisdom of putting women in combat? 

The answer is that the military, along with the entire national security establishment, is at one with the Democrat-Media complex. The image we have of generals and senior officers as defenders of tradition is wildly out of step with reality.

  1. Both Obama and Biden had political litmus tests for officers. Why would you expect a different result? If Trump had done something different, I'm sure there would have been a massive response.

  3. Go over to you tube and look up the new US Army video called Emma The Calling, it's disgustingly cringeworthy. I spent 5 years on active duty, and this video is a disgrace.

    1. I just saw the video and until the last few seconds thought it was a "spoof" from Babylon bee. It ain't. It's real.

    2. There's an Air force recruitment ad I've seen a couple times, nothing but female empowerment, which in itself is nonsense but when you read in Military Times that even with the lowered physical standards of this new version of our military something like 70% of the female recruits still fail. Woke is a joke.

  4. The only real reason for any branch to exit, is to when called upon to do so, to kill people and break things. Period.
