Leftism has seeped into every nook and cranny of American life.
And that even includes the armed forces.
That’s why Matt Gaetz called out Biden’s disturbing plans for reshaping the U.S. military.
Radical wokeness is becoming a terrible problem in society.
Wokeness was bad enough when it was relegated to far-flung gender studies departments at liberal colleges, but now it is everywhere, including the military.
And Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz drove home that point during an Armed Services budget request hearing.
During an exchange with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin – who issued a stunning stand-down order to investigate “extremism” within the military upon taking office – Gaetz mentioned, “The National Defense University had Thomas Piketty come and this was the title of his lecture: ‘Responding to China: The Case for Global Justice and Democratic Socialism.’”
Piketty is a leftist economist who believes in a globalist financial system to stop people from avoiding high taxes.
This is already after West Point got caught teaching the neo-Marxist doctrine of Critical Race Theory to cadets.
General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, admitted to having his command read grifter Ibram X. Kendi’s book “How to Be an Antiracist” – Kendi has called for a totalitarian Department of Antiracism to be able to supersede all other governmental bodies in order to ensure that all aspects of American life are racially “equitable.”
People calling for neo-Marxism and democratic socialism are the voices being allowed to influence the military.
As Gaetz highlighted, “We got time to embrace Critical Race Theory at West Point, to embrace socialism at the National Defense University, to do mandatory pronoun training . . .”
The inmates are being allowed to run the asylum, and the consequences could be devastating.
Worse yet, the actual foreign policy results have been bad under Joe Biden.
Gaetz said to Austin, “You guys said that Russia would overrun Ukraine in 36 days, you said the Taliban would be kept at bay for months, you totally blew those calls and maybe we would be better at them if the National Defense University actually worked a little more on strategy and a little less on wokeism.”
BREAKING@SecDef: "The fact that you're embarrassed by your country. I’m sorry for that."
Gaetz: “I'm embarrassed by YOUR leadership! I’m not embarrassed for my country. It's disgraceful that you would sit here & conflate your failures with those of uniformed service members.” pic.twitter.com/mUfRNbY8Rt

All signs point to wokeness affecting military preparedness.
When lives are at stake, facts and competency must take precedence over whatever “woke” precepts the Left are attempting to jam down the throats of military command.
