What Happens When the Military Goes Woke?

What Happens When the Military Goes Woke?

The military’s most basic role is to protect the nation and secure its sovereignty. In order to do so, it must recognize, dissuade, and —if necessary, neutralize— foreign enemies.

Ultimately, if the military doesn’t accomplish what it’s meant to, foreign and domestic powers will take advantage of America until it ceases to exist. That’s the simplest way to explain its huge role, unlike the actual work the military must put in.

Believe it or not, that’s a political job. Politics is not only what you see happening in Congress, or what the media addresses every day. Politics or, to be more precise, the “political” —which is the essence of Politics— is a fundamental distinction between friend and enemy, according to the German philosopher and jurist Carl Schmitt.

Basically, the “political” in this case is what makes the army not attack its own people. On the contrary, it makes it defend them from any threat

Simple, isn’t it? Yet, that’s not what’s happening in the US Military.

Saying and doing are very different things. That’s what defines coherence and honesty. And even though it’s the army that holds “This We’ll Defend” as a motto, I believe it’s the Military as a whole that feeds off this beautiful phrase.

Yet in recent times “This” has not been defended, rather attacked. By whom? You may ask.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently criticized the growing wokeness within American troops and how the agenda suddenly stopped from being the winning of wars and the protection of the American people to now make the troops feel cozy and “on fleek”.

Rapidly, members of the Military attacked Fox News and Carlson just for saying “maybe funding so-called gender reassignment surgeries isn’t going to enhance our Defense.” Is it a crime to say that?

When did the Military become Planned Parenthood with nukes? When did they become a tender NGO or a beauty salon?

When serving in the military ceases to mean understanding better what these times dangers are to successfully confront them and starts to mean having your hair done properly… that’s when you know things are messed up.

As you’re reading this, military leaders are declaring war on opinions and making uniforms for pregnant women. Far from us, China is furthering masculinity on its children and biologically enhancing its troops.

The Biden Administration is doing less than what a dead person can do to solve this absurd situation. In fact, they’re fomenting it.

The infiltration happened long ago, but it is now much clearer and radical. When people are ideologized, bad things happen. Just look at history and answers will drown your own eyes.

When a nation’s military is ideologized, the protection they swore to always hold in favor of its own people, soon becomes the protection of the ideology’s agenda and the interests of those who push for it.

Kamala and Biden rule the US following an agenda, the Military attacks people who, curiously enough, don’t agree with that agenda and the Big Tech shuts you down if you speak against that same agenda.

Bad things happen when the people with the biggest weapons prey upon civilians and shoot at their opinions like it’s currently happening. Wokeness has taken over an institution destined to wage and win wars, leaving us with a haunting question: after seeing what the Military has done to Tucker Carlson, who will they wage their next war against?
