GOP Report: Pentagon Continues Promoting Racial and Sexual Politics

A report from Congressional Republicans reveals a new level of the extent to which the Biden Administration has forced far-left political ideas, including Critical Race Theory and transgenderism, onto the United States military.

According to Fox News, the report from Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Congressman Chip Roy (R-Texas) reveals how the Department of Defense, on Biden’s orders, has reallocated funding and resources to the implementation of left-wing political indoctrination.

“Our military’s singular purpose is to ‘provide for the common defense’ of our nation,” the report reads. “It cannot be turned into a left-wing social experiment. It cannot be used as a cudgel against America itself. And it cannot be paralyzed by fear of offending the sensibilities of Ivy League faculty lounges or progressive pundits.”

“The world is a dangerous place,” the report continues, “and the Biden administration’s insanity is eroding our greatest source of security in it.”

The report reveals that, less than a month after being appointed Secretary of Defense by Biden, Lloyd Austin was ordered to direct his commanding officers to lecture the ranks on “extremism.” But an eventual report compiled by the Biden Administration itself, “Countering Extremist Activity Working Group,” revealed that there were less than 100 total cases of so-called “extremism” found among the 2.1 million members of the active forces, which amounted to less than .005 percent of all troops.

Despite this, military academy instructors are being ordered to promote “antiracist” lessons, which essentially boil down to demonizing White people and spreading the false narrative that America is a “systemically racist” nation. The military has also become accepting of “transgenderism,” the false and scientifically-debunked notion that there are more than two genders, and that anyone can change their gender at any given time.

“Rather than making the case for American greatness and protecting our nation, the military is parroting woke nonsense,” said Rubio. “It’s dumb, it doesn’t work, and it’s dangerous. We need to spend more time thinking about how to counter Chinese aircraft carriers and less time thinking about pronouns.”

“The Department of Defense’s priority should be training the men and women of our Armed Forces to be a united, lethal and battle-ready force primed to defend the United States and her interests at a moment’s notice,” said Congressman Roy. “Instead, Biden’s woke Pentagon is using taxpayer dollars to promote blatant anti-American ideology.”
