Biden Defense Officials Defend Diversity,
Equity, Inclusion in the Military

Original Article

Posted By: Black Conservative Voice, 3/25/2023 6:05:03 AM

Biden Pentagon officials in charge of military personnel policy defended pushing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the United States military during a House hearing on Thursday, arguing that it would make the military stronger, not more divided. However, they were short on data to back up their arguments. Gil Cisneros, the undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, argued, “Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to unit cohesion and trust.”


The problem is, they really don’t care about the military, diversity, OR equity. This is all political nonsense to weaken the country and our military.

Trust is EARNED and cannot be forced down other's throats as a matter of policy. Minorities showed they had what it took at the battlefront where men and women were seen to be true 'brothers in arms'. Such is true regardless of one's skin color.

It appears that even with their pushing of diversity, they cannot fill their quota of people joining the military. In fact maybe that is one of the reasons they cannot get people to join.

Back in the dinosaur days the AF had outfits called "social actions". The members had no combat mission and their only mission was to target people for racial violations. They were unofficially referred to as "Watermelon U". I was forced to go through classes once where the female instructor was wearing fatigues so tight you could examine her cervix. She sat on the edge of the desk a lot. And they just dared you to say something, or even notice. This is just mission creep from there.

I preferred the military when men were men and women were women. I like to know what's in the foxhole or bunk next to me before I go to sleep. The US military is currently not worth the shoe polish on our ancestors boots and half of the American people deserve what's coming to them.

Actually, Gil, research over the decades has shown quite the opposite. The strongest communities tend to be the most homogeneous. Understandably, this research has not received much air time, as it violates a sacred tenet of the left.

AMEN to O.P. remark. And #1 is close -- but this is truly about Diversity Inclusion and Equity, for it prioritizes things that will cause our forces to D. I. E. against an enemy who prioritized readiness for battle over being in touch with their feelings.

Diversity = Division. The military works on strategic and tactical dogma, not grand discussions of ethnic or gender/sex orientation differences. "Diversity" is not desirable where unity and followership is essential.

Our military units operated with cohesion and trust for years and year s based in earned respect and teamwork. It had nothing to do with diversity and equity. They are trying to fora false camaraderie that will lead to mistrust and weakness on the battlefield. The military is to protect the country, not be a social engineering experiment.

When the lie-berals finally push America into Civil War 2, the last thing they want is a strong patriotic well-trained military join in with the patriotic Americans fighting them. So they have done everything they can to weaken the military, and drive all the strong patriotic young men out of the military. All that will be left in the military by the time Civil War 2 stats are homosexuals and weak women, and they will side with the woke lie-berals. Of course, China, North Korea, Iran, etc, etc, are all paying attention, so we may never get to Civil War 2 before we are either destroyed by our enemies, or the earth is destroy by all-out nuclear war!!!!!

Winning a war is no longer the mission for our military. Yet, they don't want us to own guns. What other deals with foreign nations have they made to hand over our country?

As #10 says the purpose of the military is to kill things and break stuff. More specifically, for the United States military it is to be so WELL PREPARED and WELL ARMED to kill things and break stuff that no one wants to challenge us. The current woke leaders are doing little to meet those objectives, and I imagine the Chinese Generals spend a lot of time laughing at us. Little wonder so few wish to serve under incompetent, political "leaders", and it is we the people who will pay the price.

What you need is someone who has your back when you're in a jam, who is willing to die for you, just as you're willing to die for them. No one cares about your political opinion, or pronoun, when your taking fire. And, they want to know you're going to win the war, whichever you're in, not leave $80 billion in equipment, a major base asset and in-country personnel who helped you behind for no rationale reason.

When organizing the Indian Army the British formed it into regiments based on regional communities - Gurkhas, Sikhs, Rajputs, Marathas etc. Everyone was from same villages. Cohesive culture. Everyone's father, uncle or grandfathers had served before. Worked like a charm.

Protests over the police beating death of Tyre Nichols turned violent in Times Square Friday night as several arrests were made, including of a man who stomped on the windshield of an NYPD police cruiser. At least three people were handcuffed in the Crossroads of the World after getting into some sort of confrontation with police in the street. In another chaotic scene, one of the protesters hopped on the hood of a police car and cracked the windshield with his foot. Several police officers quickly moved in to grab the man and then they led him through the crowd into a police precinct, footage shows.

Minnesota lawmakers on Thursday advanced legislation that would establish the state as a "trans refuge" for children who are seeking transgender medical procedures but who may be denied "gender-affirming care" in other states. In a party-line 68-62 vote, the Minnesota House passed HF 146, which had been introduced by Rep. Leigh Finke of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Finke is the state's first transgender lawmaker. Democrats supporting the bill say the legislation will protect transgender people, their families and healthcare providers from facing legal repercussions for traveling to Minnesota to obtain cross-sex hormone prescriptions or sex-change procedures.

If you were to pay attention to the news cycles and the American people’s biggest concerns, you might think Trump spent hours talking about persistent inflation, a minor financial crisis, border security, the fentanyl epidemic, China, Russia, energy independence, etc. None of that really seemed to be on Trump’s agenda Saturday night, however. Instead, what we got was an airing of grievances from the former president. It was a rally focused on his personal enemies – the Department of Justice, Ron DeSantis, Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell,

He’s spent his time in New Haven getting to know the history of the area. “Eli Whitney’s principal legacy was the invention of the cotton gin, and that led to the expansion of slavery,” Lucas said. He’s hoping to rename the stretch of Whitney Avenue that runs through New Haven.

Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed legislation into law on Friday that added firing squads as an alternative method of execution for the state’s death-row inmates.
