With ISIS conquering the Middle East and Iran making a regular habit of test-firing ballistic missiles — oh yeah, and let’s not forget the chubby fat kid with the bad haircut over in North Korea — you’d think that our government would be concentrating all its effort on them.
With Obama in charge, you’d be wrong.
Apparently, educating soldiers on the dangers of “white privilege” is more important than educating them on actually fighting the enemy.
Judicial Watch announced… that it obtained documents from the United States Department of the Army revealing that in April 2015, 400 soldiers in the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Georgia, were subjected to a “white privilege” briefing, including a PowerPoint presentation instructing the attendees: “Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual …”
The slideshow also informed the soldiers: “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans.” It alleged that there are unspecified “powerful forces everywhere” keeping different kinds of people from being valued, accepted, and appreciated, but “we act as if it doesn’t exist.”This alleged privilege creates a “yawning divide” in income, wealth, and dignity. The material described a mythical African woman who isn’t aware that she’s black until she comes to America, encounters “white racism” and discovers the U.S. is “organized according to race.” Judicial Watch previously obtained Defense Department equal opportunity training materials that depict conservative organizations as “hate groups” and advise students to be aware that “many extremists will talk of individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place.”
Aren’t you glad your tax dollars are funding this, while Navy SEALs are being forced to buy their own equipment?
The good news is that only 8 percent of those in the active-duty military identify themselves as liberal, so they’re smart enough to see this sort of propaganda for what it is.
