Pentagon training promotes left-wing racism
| April 08, 2021 12:01 AM
In the name of fighting extremism and racism, President Joe Biden’s Department of Defense is promoting racial extremism. On this initiative, the Pentagon should stand down.
In February, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered that “every service member” should participate in a “stand-down” (a training session) to address and counteract “extremism in the ranks.” The order came in response to reports and fears that the number of “white supremacists, and other domestic terrorists such as anti-government violent extremists” was growing among U.S. armed forces personnel.
White supremacism is seriously ill. Even if some may have said the concern was overblown, Austin’s initiative was at least defensible and even laudable, as long as it focused on concrete actions and military responsibilities. Alas, and perhaps predictably, the program has devolved not just into social justice nonsense that is not properly the province of the armed forces but into the promotion of claptrap that exacerbates racial divides rather than heals them.
Credit the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal for unearthing the disturbing new information about these particular stand-downs. The outlet published the agenda for a March 22 “all-hands” meeting that fleshed out the “policy … to address extremism.” The agenda included four pages of “additional resources” that leaders should consult to aid in these stand-down sessions.
There was no “Letter from the Birmingham Jail,” nor was it a recommendation of, say, Pulitzer Prize-winning history of the civil rights era. It wasn’t a balanced list of scholarly research on neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Instead, the Pentagon was telling its men and women to imbibe tendentious works of hard-left organizations and writers and of black separatists. Among the recommended resources is the Southern Poverty Law Center, the wealthy, widely discredited (and discreditable) left-wing organization that wrongly includes ordinary conservative outlets among its once-vaunted lists of “hate groups” in the United States.
Among the other radical tracts and videos in the list, the worst are two books by the radical Ibram X. Kendi, a charlatan who got rich spreading the noxious message that (in effect) all whites are inherently racist and all blacks inherently victims. And the inclusion of Kendi isn’t just of the “for your information” variety. In the words of the “resources” list, Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist is “an electrifying combination of ethics, history and law” that is “an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.”
No, it’s not electrifying, and it isn’t essential; it’s vile racism of its own. Meanwhile, last we checked, it isn’t the military’s duty — indeed, it is entirely out of the military’s purview — to be involved in forming a “just and equitable society.” The U.S. has a vibrant civic culture (and when necessary domestic branches of the government) to work on those goals, thank you very much.
The Pentagon’s job isn’t to promote “equity” or “social justice.” Its job, as the Posse Comitatus Act makes clear, is certainly not to weed out extremist groups within U.S. borders. Its job absolutely is not to teach soldiers, sailors, and airmen that the U.S. is an inherently racist country. Its job, instead, is singular and direct: to prepare so well to win wars that we can deter war from happening at all.
The stand-down agenda pushed in the past few months goes well beyond the Pentagon’s duty to ensure that white supremacists don’t infiltrate its ranks. The agenda should be keelhauled, mustered out, ejected. It has no reasonable place in the armed forces’ arsenal.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA—Tech giant Google announced today that they are removing the entire state of Georgia from their Google Maps platform, effective immediately. This comes in response to the state’s recent voter law that many are calling racist.
“We cannot allow these racist laws to stand,” said a spokesman from the Google Office of Diversity, Inclusion, Anti-Racism, Climate Change, Immigration Reform, and LGBTQ Affairs. “That’s why we must act quickly to get states like Georgia off the map, both literally and figuratively.”
Starting today, the state of Georgia will be replaced with a blue body of water labeled “Sea of Racism” on all Google Maps platforms. Driving directions given by the site will be altered. For example, directions from South Carolina to Florida via I-95 will state: “continue south through the stupid Sea of Racism without stopping for 112 miles.”
Google will also be updating searches for locations inside the state. A search for directions to Atlanta, GA now returns the following message. “Location not found. Would you like to travel to a Google-approved destination such as Seattle, Minneapolis, or Beijing?”
The spokesman went on to clarify that Google hasn’t completely abandoned the state. “Google will still provide one-way driving directions out of the state for anyone who currently resides in Georgia,” he noted. “Also, we will still provide directions to any out-of-state celebrities or businesses who want to donate money to the Georgia Democratic Party.”
In spite of our progress in advancing civil rights for LGBTQ+ Americans, too many transgender people — adults and youth alike — still face systemic barriers to freedom and equality. Transgender Americans of all ages face high rates of violence, harassment, and discrimination. Nearly one in three transgender Americans have experienced homelessness at some point in life. Transgender Americans continue to face discrimination in employment, housing, health care, and public accommodations. The crisis of violence against transgender women, especially transgender women of color, is a stain on our Nation’s conscience.
The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to fulfilling the promise of America for all Americans by stamping out discrimination and delivering freedom and equality for all.
To ensure that the Federal Government protects the civil rights of transgender Americans, I signed, on my first day in office, an Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation. Today, we are proud to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility alongside barrier-breaking public servants, including the first openly transgender American to be confirmed by the United States Senate, and alongside patriotic transgender service members, who are once again able to proudly and openly serve their country. We also celebrate together with transgender Americans across the country who will benefit from our efforts to stop discrimination and advance inclusion for transgender Americans in housing, in credit and lending services, in the care we provide for our veterans, and more.
To more fully protect the civil rights of transgender Americans, we must pass the Equality Act and provide long overdue Federal civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The Equality Act will deliver legal protections for LGBTQ+ Americans in our housing, education, public services, and lending systems. It will serve as a lasting legacy to the bravery and fortitude of the LGBTQ+ movement.
Vice President Harris and I affirm that transgender Americans make our Nation more prosperous, vibrant, and strong. I urge my fellow Americans to join us in uplifting the worth and dignity of every transgender person.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2021, as Transgender Day of Visibility. I call upon all Americans to join in the fight for full equality for all transgender people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.
JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
Trafficked Children, Bodies, Weapons Found on Evergreen Ship Blocking Suez Canal
Over a thousand trafficked children and dead bodies have been rescued out of shipping containers in the Suez Canal by US Navy Seals. Sources say that as of this writing, children were still being rescued and bodies discovered in Evergreen’s 18,000+ containers. The containers were on an Evergreen Corporation ship that blocked the Canal from Tues. 23 March to Mon 29 March, causing billions in lost revenue to shipping companies internationally.
The Seals also found Weapons of Mass Destruction on the six-story high vessel – which was believed destined to start a war in the Middle East.
Finally by Tues. the Evergreen cargo ship was loosened and taken to Bitter Lake in Egypt. By order of the Egyptian President, the containers were taken off the ship and searched by US Navy Seals.
The Japanese-owned, Taiwanese-operated ship of Evergreen Corporation was actually co-owned by Walmart and the Clinton Foundation – known for it’s international child trafficking ring. The children were said ordered out of magazines like Wayfair by pedophiles who paid big bucks for certain abused children.
Think this was just a conspiracy theory? Here was the testimony of a brave Trafficked Survivor who claimed that as a child, she was strapped inside one of those Evergreen human trafficking containers:
Evergreen was believed to not only be carrying trafficked children but Weapons of Mass Destruction. Many other ships that were blocked in the Suez Canal last week were also discovered to be carrying weapons – believed to be used to start a war in the Middle East. Why? The weapons were going to be given to the Muslims by the Israel Mossad.
Human traffickers were being arrested and cartels busted – losing critical income for their owners worldwide. The Deep State Operation was said to have lost 400 million $ an hour while the ships were stuck for a week – that would pale in comparison to what those children were undergoing.
Evergreen vessels were having problems in ports all over the world. Why? Why were Special Ops US Navy Seals magically on the scene to rescue the children? Was the ship purposely run aground? It was rumored that holes in Microsoft software allowed someone, or ones, to hack into the Evergreen ship software, take over the steering and run it into the bank.
Why would a vessel of that size from Taiwan list its first destination as the Netherlands? Why would the below news article NOT mention Amsterdam? (Only Dutch) Lots of significant signals and clues were being released. Egypt could seek $1 billion from ship Ever Given: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2021/04/01/suez-canal-blockage-egypt-could-seek-1-billion-ship-ever-given/4833205001/
Guido Fawkes Telegram on Thurs. 1 April: “Ever Given has been boarded by the US Navy Seals and they have opened several cargo containers with living and dead inside. The vessel is in Bitter Lake and the Navy is performing unloading procedures. No images will be leaked, but I have been sent one.”
