The Continuing Politicization of the Military

Under the Biden administration, the military continues its march toward woke political enlightenment.

20 Jun 2024 ~~ By John A. Lucas

Insignia and patches on a soldier’s uniform used to serve the purpose of telling you something about the military qualifications and experience of the soldier. Under the Biden administration, they can also signal whether a soldier ascribes to the Democrat party’s current political trends. The latest example of this is an Air Force commander’s approval of a “Pride Patch” for wear on military uniforms during “Pride Month.”

The patches and badges on a soldier’s uniform are not just informative, they are sources of immense pride in military assignments and achievements. For example, soldiers take great pride in being assigned to an elite unit, such as the Ranger Regiment, Special Forces, or the 82d Airborne, and proudly wear their patch or insignia on their uniforms. When you see a soldier proudly wearing a Ranger scroll as the patch on his right shoulder, you know he has served in combat with one of the most elite military units in the world.

An apolitical military is a national imperative.

I have previously written about dangers of a political military, including in my articles Biden Administration Orders Ideological Purge of U.S. Military Academies and “To Win Our Nation’s Wars”? (Lions led by donkeys). A politicized military is a danger to a free country and paves way to a loss of freedom and even a dictatorship. But as we know, under the Biden administration the politicization of the military is proceeding apace. As Joy Pullmann has documented in her just-released magnum opusFalse Flag,” the “Pride Flag” has flown over U.S. embassies and military installations world-wide since 2011. And our senior military leadership from Commander-in-Chief Biden on down has embraced DEI and its political symbols to the max and to the detriment of the military and the country.
And make no mistake about it, commanders who want to be promoted or favored with good assignments, know who is buttering their bread and what they want.
~Snip~
So, make no mistake about it: Flaunting a 13-colored “pride” patch that announces the wearer’s supposed “pride” in identifying with particular sexual practices or lifestyles, is a political statement. It does absolutely nothing to advance a miliary unit’s lethality, competence or readiness. But it does signal loyalty to DEI politics. Allowing it on any military uniform is another strike against an apolitical military, which is essential to a free country. But the base commander, Colonel William McKibban, clearly sees which way the political winds are blowing. My prediction is that he will make general.

Commentary:
Whatever happened to the apolitical soldier.
Seems that the officer corps in each branch of the services have become political. If you want to climb the ladder you've got to be a Democrat, "Woke, Trans", and pro climate change .
It's no longer your father's, or grandfather's military.
It's hard not to get beaten down and discouragedby the relentless "Fundamental Transformation" of all our institutions.
Isn't it perplexing how fast these changes are taking place and the complacency
of our superior officers on the Pentagon.
Is it becausethe neo-Marxist Left has been focusedon implementing their policiesand our military leaders weak and indecisive?
Unfortumately, the inane policies our elites are forcing upon our enlisted personnel may well prove to the further downfall of this country just as the downfall of Rome.

Doc7505 wants a MAGA military.

The military will ignore Donald on it.

When countries/empires start to implode NO ONE associated with either of the before mentioned are immune to the effects. Our U.S. military is just one segment of American society so they go down with the ship just like every other member of society goes down with the ship. Just some segments of society get sucked down under earlier than other segments of society do. As ole T1 said;

"It's in your NATURE to destroy yourselves".
 
Yes. They have a guide they will use as they see fit. You can opine and whine, but you don't shine.
Clearly you've never served in the USA military nor have much knowledge or experience with it.
They are called "uniform" for a reason. Only authorized items, badges, insignia, decorations, medals/awards, etc. can be worn on such.
It is "You can opine and whine, but you don't shine." Or know jack squat.
 
You know nothing. I know that commanders of major units and installations can make decisions that you can't.

Your whine and shine don't mean a thing. The Colonel will be allowed the patch. It won't be reversed.
