During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Friday, Senator Tom Cotton revealed shocking stories from whistleblowers in the military detailing how they are being indoctrinated to hate America by superiors who are adopting ‘woke’ practises, including racial segregation.
Cotton detailed how hundreds of people have come forward to warn that there is a “very specific kind of anti-American indoctrination” going on within the military.
The Senator told Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin during the hearing that in one instance “Members of the wing were ordered to separate themselves by race and gender in order to stratify people based on their perceived privilege.”
According to the complaint, airmen and women were then sent on “privilege walks.”
“Mr. Secretary, we’re hearing reports of plummeting morale, growing mistrust between the races and sexes, where none existed just six months ago, and unexpected retirements and separations, based on these trainings alone,” Cotton declared.
Cotton described a separate incident, noting a “Marine told us a military history training session was replaced with mandatory training on police brutality, White privilege, and systemic racism.”
“He reported that several officers are now leaving his unit citing that training,” Cotton stated.
The Senator continued, “Another service member told us that their unit was required to read ‘White Fragility’ by Robin DiAngelo, which claims – and this is a quote- ‘White people raised in Western society are conditioned in a White supremacist world view.’”
Austin responded to Cotton’s statements by suggesting that “diversity, equity and inclusion” are now priorities for The Pentagon, and that it wants a military that “looks like America.”
‘Wokeness’ in the military has come under scrutiny recently with weird adverts promoting identity and gender politics, and stories of those who have questioned critical race theory being removed from leadership roles.
