USAFA's political commissars
Don't think this is just a problem with the US Air Force Academy. No, all our services academies are worm-ridden with the worst ideas infesting academia from the "diversity" cult.
You need to read the full thing, but to give you a taste of what is going on, I do have three slides for you to review;
So, in the USAF you are a bad person if you are "colorblind" or state "I don't see color." Even worse, you are not allowed to think that "we're all just people."
To draw that out, it appears that the USAF wants everyone to judge people by the color of their skin first of all.
If that isn't racist and retrograde, I'm not sure what is.
Callsigns and nicknames are bad too, it appears.
Oh, no boyfriends or girlfriends.
It gets worse.
As always, if you have to tell someone you are important, or threaten them to say you are important, you actually are not important - just a hazard.
Also I will note, they are referencing the "diverse teams outperform" that has been debunked countless times by actual scientific studies...and reminded to everyone during the FY 2023 NDAA markup by Congressman Gallagher (R-WI).
Not only is this political, it is starting to gain the appearances of cultish religions. You have a cadre of zampolits/inquisitors who run around looking for heretics to destroy, they have "Reading Rooms," "Red Guard" apparatchiks embedded with eyes and ears everywhere, and of course, promote "Affinity Groups" who exist only to promote sectarian division.
Don't forget, the commissariat that the US military, academic institutions, and other governmental organizations do not come cheap, and they only grow. They don't exist to solve any problems, but to instead expand them. That is the way to job security and more contracts.
Next week's DivThu will give you an example of that price tag.
Until then, please try to remember that no one has a "mom" or a "dad."
Welcome to Year-0.
Good news, there are people about to access levers of power who appear to have had about enough of this grevience-driven rent seeking;
Waltz (R-FL), a ranking member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness, told Fox News Digital that the program’s structure is particularly concerning because it appears to create a "separate, parallel chain of command."
"To those of us who are a little bit older, it reminds us of what the Soviets used to do or what the Chinese do today, where they literally have political commissars inserted at every level end of the chain of command, but they have a separate reporting chain to ensure that the military is abiding by their ideology and their political doctrine," Waltz said.
"Not only do they have diversity and equity officers in the cadet chain of command, they wear a special insignia, which is exactly what the political commissars — they would wear an armband in both the Soviet army and now in the Chinese Communist military. I just think there are some really alarming parallels," he said.
"When we are in the majority, we are going to legislate this, and we are going to cut it out of the U.S. military," he added.
An Air Force Academy spokesperson said in a statement to Fox News Digital that the D&I training is to help prepare cadets for "warfighting effectiveness."
There is a time and a season for everything.
Winter is coming...or spring.
