While the mainstream media attempts to memory hole this event from ever occurring, it wasn’t that long ago when Gen. Miley testified at a Senate hearing that woke left-wing indoctrination was not taking place in the military.
He claimed that soldiers should be educated about left and right-wing issues while uttering his famous admission: “I’ve read Karl Marx.”
Still, according to this bombshell report, it appears not only are our soldiers being indoctrinated with far-left claptrap, but taxpayers are footing the bill!
The United States military spent nearly six million man-hours on an extremism “stand-down” and “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” (DEI) training since Joe Biden took office, according to Department of Defense (DOD) data.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley provided that data to Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) Republicans in response to an October 2021 request.
The data showed that service members spent a total of 5,889,082 man-hours on the “stand-down” — a day when all commanders in the military spoke to their troops about extremism, and on DEI, including critical race theory.
“We face real threats across the world, yet the Biden administration is more focused on promoting its leftist social agenda in the military instead of countering China, Russia and Iran or creating an effective counterterrorism plan,” said the Republican senators in a statement earlier this week.
The Republican senators who requested the information from the DOD include SASC Ranking Member Sen. Jim Inhofe (OK); and Sens. Marsha Blackburn (TN); Roger Wicker (MS); Deb Fischer (NE); Tom Cotton (AR); Mike Rounds (SD); Joni Ernst (IA); Thom Tillis (NC); Dan Sullivan (AK); Kevin Cramer (ND); Rick Scott (FL); and Tommy Tuberville (AL).
The senators noted that the Biden administration’s Countering Extremism Working Group in December released a report that found “fewer than 100” service members had engaged in “extremist activity” — after spending roughly a year studying it.
Milley’s response also showed the DOD spent more than 1,000 man-hours on a climate adaptation plan.
They warned the Biden administration that they would use all tools at their disposal to ensure the DOD focuses on protecting the country.
“The Department of Defense’s primary task is to protect Americans from foreign threats. If the Biden administration doesn’t make this a priority moving forward, we will use all tools at our disposal, including the annual defense authorization bill, to ensure that it does,” they said.
This admission comes as America’s adversaries encroach on our strongest allies in multiple different regions.
Could all of this be by design?
