House Rep. Calls Out Biden for Military Wokeness: Need More Than ‘Better Pronoun Usage’
California Republican House Rep. Devin Nunes blasted President Joe Biden during a hearing on Wednesday, claiming the military’s new focus on being “woke” won’t help against China’s hypersonic missiles.
Nunes spoke during the Intelligence Committee’s hearing on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility in the Intelligence Community. Yes, that’s a thing now.
“Unfortunately, we can’t counter hypersonic missile launch with better pronoun usage,” Nunes said.
“And a deeper understanding of white rage won’t rescue Americans stranded in Afghanistan. I’d argue that woke obsessions are the proper jurisdiction of faculty lounge Marxists, not our national security agencies. The politicization of our national security apparatus is utterly destructive,” he added.
The words were a refreshing contrast to the usual woke folk talk found in the hearing. This is the freaking military. We need worry about if everyone is happy and feels included and more talk about how we are going to protect our nation from the growing threats against our feeble Biden administration.
It won’t help to add “he/him” or “she/her” pronouns on our profiles when a terrorist crosses Biden’s open border to kill us. The next 9/11 terrorist is more likely to cross the Rio Grande River than to fly on a commercial airplane.
While Biden is on his fake White House set reading from a teleprompter to people on a screen, the Taliban did just fine taking over a nation America held in check for 20 years. Instead of inclusion, they simply picked up weapons and acted.
Sometimes simple works. We don’t need to complicate military policy with the social agenda of the left. We already have, or at least had, the strongest military in the world. Now we’re kicking out Navy SEALs who refuse to take Fauci’s ouchy.
Maybe it makes sense to Biden if he never plans to actually use the military anyway, but for the rest of America, we’re counting on our troops to protect our nation. They are our best hope and deserve far better than they are receiving from Washington at the moment.
If Biden can’t handle being commander-in-chief, we need someone else who can. While many wish we could fast forward to November 2024 and try again, the options are more limited for now. Republicans will work for victory in the midterms, but many Americans feel powerless at the moment.
But there is more we can do. First, we have to refuse to quit. It’s the same motto our military has. Second, let’s honor those who are serving. They’re in a tough spot, now more from our own nation in many ways than from enemies elsewhere.
We can also speak out against the current administration’s policy that are harming our Armed Forces. As with other “crimes,” when you see something, say something. Doing nothing is not an option. Not unless you want to see more equity and inclusion in the military instead of actually standing to protect the people of our nation.
