The US Army and the CIA are using PC messages for recruitment and it is hurting this country. Foreign foes will not care about the entitled attitudes of recruits on race, gender, and sexuality. In fact, the Chinese and Russian military and foreign intelligence services will make quick work of soy boys and assorted other deviants who think their personal choices and orientations qualify them for military or intelligence work.
As a former member of the military intelligence community, I can tell you that professionals in the IC are not happy with tokenism and unqualified recruits putting them and the country in danger. Recruits should be chosen on their ability to do the job, nothing else. But in the Biden era everything matters but merit.
FNC: “The U.S. Army has released a new animated video featuring the story of a current Army corporal with two moms who got married after one of them survived a severe car accident. The May 4 video comes as part of the Army’s new recruitment campaign, ‘The Calling,’ that tells the diverse stories of five different service members. The video also comes after the Central Intelligence Agency faced backlash for ‘woke’ recruitment ads as the two agencies look to expand their applicant pool.” Expand? By substituting ideology for merit anyone can increase the recruit pool.”
“It begins in California with a little girl raised by two moms,” the narrator of the Army travesty, Cpl. Emma Malonelord, says. “Although I had a fairly typical childhood, took ballet, played violin, I also marched for equality. I like to think I’ve been defending freedom from an early age.” Ummm, no. That would be the people who you were marching against.
The video then shows a cartoon recreation, because adults need to learn from cartoons, of Malonelord’s existence, including the time when one of her parents got into an accident that “left her paralyzed…Doctors said she might never walk again, but she tapped into my family’s pride to get back on her feet, eventually standing at the altar to marry my other mom,” Malonelord says. The video cuts to a cartoon scene of the women at an altar. Yeah, that will instill terror into Iranian infantry.
And the CIA? Even worse. “Growing up gay in a small Southern town, I was lucky to have a wonderful and accepting family. I always struggled with the idea that I may not be able to discuss my personal life at work. Imagine my surprise when I was taking my oath at the CIA and I noticed a rainbow on then-Director [John] Brennan’s lanyard.” Brennan also was an admitted communist years earlier. Wonder why the hammer and sickle wasn’t on his lanyard?
Another unintentional laugh fest featured a Latin CIA agent who went on and on over herself as “intersectional,” “cisgender,” and “millennial” who adores herself “unapologetically” because she won’t internalize “misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be.” Ah, the patriarchy. The same patriarchy that founded, built, and still largely runs the CIA? That patriarchy?
Of course, all this is PC folderol and has nothing to do with intelligence work. But it’s the CIA, so we expect that. A PC military and intelligence apparatus, just what our enemies are hoping we face them with. Thanks Joe. China, Iran, and Russia owe you one.
