Is Biden trying to root out all traces of conservativism in our society? He might be, starting with the military.
The U.S. Armed Forces have long been a haven for conservative Americans. That’s because they attract young men and women who patriotically want to fight for our freedoms.
(Not a lot of leftists eager to do that!)
But in recent weeks, we’ve seen attempts by Biden’s administration at cracking down on conservatives among the military.
Now, Biden’s Secretary of Defense is taking unprecedented action. From Daily Wire:
U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has ordered all branches of the military to enact a “stand down” within the next 60 days so they can address supposed internal threats posed by white supremacy and other forms of extremism…
“Lloyd Austin, the first Black secretary of defense who recently took over at the Pentagon, ordered each branch of the military to stand down at some point over the next 60 days to discuss the threat posed by white supremacy and similar extremism, said Pentagon press secretary John Kirby.”
Biden’s SOD is calling for a “stand down” across the military to “root out” white supremacy and other forms of “extremism.”
How much do you want to bet that includes owning a red MAGA hat?
Honestly, does anyone believe there are thousands of extremists lurking in our military? I doubt there are even a dozen or more that hold to such an extreme view.
But given the left’s intense opposition of conservative values, they have branded any views right of center as “extreme.”
After all, how do you define “extremism”? What will be the criteria for generals and military officers to decide who is extreme or not?
This looks an awful lot like an attempt by Biden to “purge” anyone from the military he doesn’t like. Maybe like something a dictator would do when assuming power.
Does Biden expect the entire military to hold to his views? Does he want all soldiers to be Democrats?
That would make it easier to order them to do things that might be illegal or against their conscience.
The left frequency called Trump a dictator and tyrant. But did he even try to root out soldiers with the “wrong” views? Did he ever accuse the men and women who serve in the Armed Forces “extreme”?
