And You Thought Public Schools Were a Problem?

We have talked a lot about the nation’s public schools and how they are indoctrinating America’s youth into leftist thought. It appears today’s Army may be even worse. It appears today’s Army is working to turn troops into good little leftists, even claiming MAGA is a sign of white supremacy:

A U.S. Army email inviting employees to listening sessions on race and diversity referred to an attachment to the email, which contained a graphic that said the phrase, “Make America Great Again” is evidence of white supremacy, according to a copy of the email obtained exclusively by Breitbart News.

The email — sent on July 6, 2020, from the Army Missile & Aviation Center’s Equal Employment Opportunity Manager Chaney P. Pickard to employees at the center on the Redstone Arsenal Army Base in Alabama — invited employees to attend and said: “see attached timeline” for specific times for the listening sessions.

The email had a five-page attachment that included the times, plus a graphic that listed behaviors considered evidence of “white supremacy” in a pyramid.

The attachment’s first page contained basic information about the U.S. Army’s “Operation Inclusion” listening sessions, due to take place July 8-9, 2020, at the Sparkman Center Complex, Building 5309, in the Bob Jones Auditorium.

The second page gives more information on the listening sessions. “Interested and available Soldiers and [Department of the Army] Civilians in the Huntsville, Alabama, Redstone Arsenal, and the [U.S. Army Corps of Engineers] areas are welcomed to participate in the listening sessions taking place 8 and 9 July.” It also listed specific times of the listening sessions.

The third page says “U.S. ARMY EQUITY & INCLUSION AGENCY and Assistant Secretary of the Army – Manpower and Reserve Affairs” at the top, and five “Must-Read Articles For Every Leader,” along with web addresses to the articles.

The articles are #1: America is on Fire. / #2: Bryan Stevenson on the Frustration Behind the George Floyd Protest  #3: Your Black Colleagues May Look Like They’re Okay–Chances Are They’re Not #4: U.S. Businesses Must Take Meaningful Action Against Racism  #5: Five Practices and Three Myths that Fuel Inequality.

The fourth page contains the graphic that has outraged conservatives and lawmakers. It is a pyramid listing behaviors considered to be overt and covert white supremacy, including saying, “Make America Great Again,” celebrating Columbus Day, and saying “all lives matter,” or “there’s only one human race.”

The full list of “convert [sic] white supremacy,” behaviors which are labeled racist but “social accetable [sic],” reads:

    This realy shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the people who are current/recent flag officers and considering theArmy and Marines have even held classes on LGBTQ acceptance (promotion) in Afghanistan.

    We talk about the left taking control of the media and education. It appears it is also taking control of our military.

    Never underestimate the power the left wields. Of course, the Murdoch boys and their wives are part of the left. Meanwhile, at CNN Don Lemon, Fredo Cuomo, etc. can say anything they wish with impunity.

    From the article:

    ==> I don’t care if people have hurt feelings. Everybody has hurt feelings at one time or another. The thing is, the lunatics that are becoming a bigger blight on America every day always have hurt feelings. They wake up aggrieved, and the day just becomes one long list of grievances that is updated hourly. Though it may seem impossible, there is an inexhaustible supply of grievances to keep them raging.

    Back in the Occupy days, I kept saying and writing that the rage was the endgame for them. It’s basically the same now. They keep saying they want change, and I don’t doubt that they would like to affect some political change here and there, but that won’t make them any less angry. There is nothing that will make them less angry simply because angry is what they want to be.

    If Fox News fires Tucker Carlson then I am done with them forever. I watch a little of Fox & Friends while exercising in the morning, but other than that Tucker is the ONLY news I watch.

    There is NO placating the Woke mobs…they will just find a new target.

    JR #9 –

    I swore off Faux News more than five years ago. If Tucker has an interesting segment, I can always pick it up on a conservative website.

    The storm has been unleashed. Now, we just hold on till things slow down again.

    Ever since the defenestration of James Bennet at the New York Times last month I’ve been expecting that Bari Weiss would soon follow. And today Weiss handed in her resignation to the Times with a long open letter to the publisher.

    Weiss: A “new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.”

    More from the Bari Weiss resignation letter:
    “My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.

    There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge. I’m no legal expert. But I know that this is wrong.”
