I was a Blue and Gold Officer for USNA for 17 years and one year at summer training back at Annapolis we had the new Commandant addressing us and he asked the question "If you were advising your own child on a attending a service academy, would you recommend Navy?" Of course there were a lot of Sir, Yes Sir responses, except for one retired Marine Gunny in the back of the room, who shouted out Sir, No Sir! The room went silent, as you might imagine. The Commandant looked back and said Gunny, did I hear you correctly? The Gunny responded, Sir, Yes Sir! Where would you recommend, Gunny? Sir, I'd recommend West Point! If the room was silent before, now no one was even breathing. The Commandant said Gunny, did I hear you correctly -- West Point? Sir, Yes Sir!. Why is that, Gunny. Sir, they are the only service academy turning out warriors was the response. I'm not sure we could even say that today.

What I find somewhat disturbing is how quickly the Pentagon and the different services rolled out this garbage of 'wokeness' once the Bidumb regime usurped power. Immediately upon being confirmed as SecDef, Idi Amin (Austin) was all over "white extremists" in the ranks. The move to become 'all inclusive' with sexual perverts and other freaks began immediately, also. Kind of makes you think they had already prepared the course of action for all of this carp. I was working for Department of the Army at the time, and there had been no mention of any of this stuff before Brandon assumed power.

Progressive-liberals used to hate the military until they figured out that, yes, in fact, the US military does answer to civilian control. Not only that, but the US military's own culture of taking orders and then honestly doing everything in its power to achieve those directed goals and objectives means to the prog-libby left that no matter what they do order the military to do, in the end, they military will do its best to make it happen. The military's senior leadership might protest and offer all the rational in the world as to why the idea is a bad one for the efficacy of the services and their ultimate ability to successfully fight war, but military tradition engrained into its leadership is that once you've voiced your opinions to the boss, it's time to salute and say, "Yes, sir!"

So, here we finally have the military's greatest strength exploited and turned into a weakness by those who have always hated it. Progressive-liberals have now learned that they can force the military into any sort of social experiment that they want. If even marginally successful, the prog-libby left will use that to publicly rationalize and justify what they demanded in order to further normalize it within society. If it is a total failure and a bust, the prog-libby left also achieves something - the slow destruction of an institution they despise and want to destroy anyways. A win-win for the prog-libby left.

This slow degradation by bureaucratic prog-libbies of the US military is the same strategy that has been used successfully by the progressive-liberal totalitarians throughout all levels of the government, from law enforcement to education. Slowly and deliberately fill all the positions of power and then the positions of execution with people who serve the progressive-liberal totalitarian agenda first and the public second.

The US military is just the latest arm and organ of the government to be turned into a political action wing of the progressive left.

In spite of ridiculously high enlistment bonuses, junior EMs living off-base in apartments and driving new cars, recruiters are still not meeting their quotas. Could it be that healthy young Americans don't want to be part of a freak show? The only similarity between today's Marine Corps and mine is the name. What WOULD Chesty think? We were actually a deterrent to aggression, not an invitation.

I don't care if you are a man or a ram who wants to get milked - or a woman and want to wear a penis. I just care about your rifle score - 😁😁

People worry about morale so much - I just need constant supply of food and ammo -

Very sad to see this happen, Socialism is definitely on the march. Zoomies need to raise a ruckus until this is remedied. Demand that the AFA Superintendent is removed.
