Air Force Academy Forces Students to Watch Pro-BLM Video

The newest class of cadets at the United States Air Force Academy, as part of their education, are being forced to watch a video that is supportive of the far-left domestic terrorist organization Black Lives Matter, Fox News reports.

The video in question portrays a fictional situation where a mixed-race student named Jose, who has a Nigerian mother and a Mexican father, is pressured into attending a Black Lives Matter rally on his campus by two of his friends. A third friend tries to convince him to not go, instead suggesting that “all lives matter” is a better slogan, since “black lives matter” would suggest to Jose that his mother’s life matters more than his father’s.

At that point, the video is to be paused by the instructor, and students are asked to choose from three different answers that Jose should give; every single answer is critical of the friend and supportive of Black Lives Matter, and in any case, Jose responds by saying that his friend’s comments are “problematic” and “insensitive.”

It was confirmed by the Academy’s Chief of Media Relations, Dean Miller, that the video is, in fact, “required training for inbound cadets (appointees) ahead of their arrival to the U.S. Air Force Academy.” The video is part of the broader far-left initiative by the Biden Administration to implement “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) training throughout the United States Armed Forces. DEI is one of several branches of the broader notion of Critical Race Theory, the debunked claim that all White people are automatically racist, and that America is an inherently racist nation.

After facing growing backlash over multiple similar trainings across different branches, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin lied under oath before Congress and claimed that the Department of Defense does not “teach,” “embrace,” or otherwise support Critical Race Theory. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley has claimed that he doesn’t even know what Critical Race Theory is, but reaffirmed that he supports the idea nevertheless.
