Op Ed # 615 A Letter From The "Flag Officers 4 America" That Every American Should Read
By Capt Joseph R. John, May 3, 2023
The below listed letter, signed by 87 Patriotic General and Flag Officers, requests the leaders of both political parties in the US House of Representatives to eliminate all funding for the indoctrination and brain washing of all members of the US Armed Forces, and for the Cadets and Midshipmen matriculating at the five US Service Academies, of the Marxist created philosophy of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), which includes the radical Marxist racist philosophy of Critical Race Theory (CRT). Those Marxist philosophies are being brainwashed into every member of the US Armed Forces by the “Woke” and “Mentally Weak” Secretary of Defense and the compromised and “Woke” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; they have been taking their radical Marxist marching orders from the Communist Chinese corrupted and compromised Biden/Obama administration.
The Biden/Obama administration instituted and has forced the destabilizing policy of Wokeness in the US Military, over the last two and a half years. It is the politics of discriminating military personnel by skin color, and forcing personnel to use Woke pronouns for newly recruited transgender personnel. At a time when Communist China is telling their population that they are “at war” with the United States, the brainwashing of military personnel in Marxist philosophy, has resulted in “Weakened Morale,” a Decreased State of Combat Readiness,” has eliminated “Unit Cohesion,” and has degraded the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces.
The Navy Leadership is aggressively promoting “Wokeness” and has threatened to punish sailors who purposely abuse pronouns to define transgender service members, viewing it as an offense of harassment. Sailors that contravene the policy can encounter administrative or judicial punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The Navy Pentagon Leadership states that intentional misuse of transgender service member pronouns is inappropriate and inconsistent with the Navy zero tolerance policy on harassment. The Navy is now stating that using a Woke pronoun is a transgender individual self-identity which both civilian and uniformed Navy members must always use, whether they believe in the validity of the term or not, they must use the transgendered members preferred pronouns or they will be punished.
Imposing the “Wokeness” progressive ideology, forcing the indoctrination of “Critical Race Theory” for all members of the US Armed Forces, which focusing on their skin color, and eliminating the privacy of female-only living facilities has resulted in a severe “Recruiting Crisis for the All-Volunteer Force.” All branches of the Armed Forces are facing dire recruiting difficulties. The Army failed to meet 25% of its recruiting goal, the Navy is raising the maximum enlistment age to 41 to try to try to meet its recruiting goal. Vacancies in the ranks are not escaping the rulers of Communist China, Russia, Communist Cuba, Communist North Korea, and Islamic Republic of Iran (Largest State Sponsor of Terrorist).
The requirement for the US military to improve “Combat Effectiveness” should be the primary goal of the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. However, by imposing “Wokeness,” and aggressively recruiting LGBTQ personnel, while requiring the US Military to cover the cost of hundreds of thousands dollars for sex transition surgery, allowing those patients to be on medical leave for 2 years while recovering, is unsustainable. By imposing the indoctrination of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Critical Race Theory Marxist philosophies on all military personnel, and aggressively recruiting LGBTQ personnel, the Secretary of Defense has made it exceedingly difficult to recruit the average white conservative Americans who at one time enlisted in the All-Volunteer Force.
If American voters want the US Armed Forces to be ready to fight and win in any future conflicts, they must elect a President and Congress that will stop the focus on Wokeness, who instead will focus on improving “Military Readiness”, “Combat Effectiveness”, and “Unit Cohesion”, not on Wokeness. The US Constitutional Republic needs a President who understands that America’s adversaries do not care about the use of specific pronouns or the focus on the politics of race discrimination.
The below listed letter signed by 87 Flag and General Officers is a warning to all Patriotic American Citizens that the finest US Military in history is being intentionally eroded, from within, by a Woke” Secretary of Defense, a “Woke” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, by US Domestic Enemies, by Socialist Democrats in Congress, and by Marxists recruited into Fifth Columns which are being embedded in the Deep Washington State by the Biden/Obama administration.
