If AOC can claim to be traumatized by being evacuated from her office because there was violence taking place in a building a half a block away, then imagine the fuss that Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene could’ve put up after the Congress member from Guam led a group of uniformed Guam National Guard troops to her office to protest her mistaken reference to Guam as a foreign country.
Fortunately, she wasn’t there at the time (I mean, fortunately for the Congress member from Guam, since his troops probably couldn’t have protected him from her.)
On the serious side, along with putting “woke” social engineering ahead of military readiness, investigating their own troops for dangerous conservative sympathies, using Guard troops as a prop to surround the Capitol, and publicly attacking Tucker Carlson for criticizing them…
…this is yet another chilling example of how the left’s politicization of everything has now infected the military. If you’d like to be thoroughly depressed, read Rod Dreher’s lengthy article at The American Conservative, “US Military: Social Justice Warriors,” and learn just how woke/left/”progressive” our military “leadership” has become. You might be shocked at what they’re pushing, promoting, ordering and forcing troops to read, in defiance of logic, common sense, American values and military preparedness.
Dreher warns darkly that having infiltrated and taken over every other powerful institution (education, publishing, media, entertainment, social media, tech, the federal government), the left has now taken over the last one standing between them and the Constitution: the military.
I like to hope that the courts, the states and the individual troops will provide a bulwark until the voters can kick the radical leftists out of power. But if the Senate passes HR1 (the “Legalize Vote Fraud to Cement Democrats in Power Forever Bill”), that might become impossible. So if you are in a state with a Democrat Senator – or, since the Dems may not care what voters think, a wobbly Republican like Mitt Romney – you had better let them know in no uncertain terms that this bill needs to have a stake driven through it and be buried deeper than Dracula.
