Why Is The U.S. Military Fighting Freedom Harder Than Foreign Threats?

Our military leaders should focus on fighting external threats at this crucial historical juncture, not fighting a domestic culture war.

Corporate media and progressives found a new darling in Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, after his congressional testimony last week. Anyone who dared to criticize him was blasted as either unpatriotic or demonstrating “white rage.”

Republicans have criticized the U.S. military for promoting books that advocate for racial divisions — for example, listing Ibram Kendi’s critical race theory gospel, “How to Be an Antiracist,” as reading for sailors in the U.S. Navy. During his testimony, Milley made it clear he didn’t see anything wrong with training the U.S. military in critical race theory.

Milley Defends Racist Indoctrination

“I’ve read Mao Zedong. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin,” he argued. “That doesn’t make me a communist.” Many advocates of critical race theory’s racist teachings have made similar arguments about teaching it in K-12 schools, claiming it is just one of many ideas students are taught.

But the general’s own words quickly betrayed the notion that books about critical race theory are casual reading assignments simply for soldiers’ intellectual curiosity. Referencing the events at the U.S. Capitol in January, he stated: “I want to understand white rage. And I’m white.”

The phrase “white rage” is CRT newspeak, implying that “rage” has a color, and it is exclusively “white.” Emory University professor Carol Anderson coined the term in her 2016 book “White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide.” She sees “white rage” as “the operational function of white supremacy,” which is embedded in policies that actively “undermine African American achievement and advancement.”

The phrase reflects CRT advocates’ typical but misguided beliefs that the United States hasn’t made much progress in racial healing and racial equality, and that minorities are still hopelessly oppressed by the white majority in today’s America. Many scholars, including black scholars such as Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, and Jason Riley, have refuted such beliefs vigorously.

Nevertheless, by using “white rage” in his testimony, Milley indicated he is on board with CRT’s teachings and beliefs. Furthermore, he demands American soldiers be indoctrinated with the same ideology.

“What is wrong,” Milley asked, with “having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend?” This assumes that one can understand the United States by accepting accusations against its white citizens as expressions of “rage.” Of course, there is nothing wrong with American soldiers understanding our nation’s true history — not only its faults, but also the progress it has made.

Is A Ban on Menthol Cigarettes Racist?

If public health scolds get their way, they will worsen the nation’s over-criminalization problem.

Why ban menthol cigarettes.  Just because they say black people like them more? What in the ever loving fuck is our country doing?  That’s just tobacco discrimination. Menthol cigarettes aren’t the problem. Making everything about the race is. Cigarettes and their companies are non-discriminatory. They want to sell to everyone of age regardless of race, gender, class, etc. I thought this was supposed to be a free country. This shouldn’t be what the government is spending its time on.

MLB Caves To Pressure, Moves All Star Game Out Of Atlanta

Major League Baseball will move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta after Georgia passed voting bills that disproportionately affect people of color.

 

A couple of thoughts on Major League Baseball moving the All Star Game

 

I don’t give a shit about Major League Baseball anymore but has anyone even read S.B. 202? For example: the new law does not change Georgia’s Election Day voting hours.  Thirty-four other states require voter ID. The amount of lies being spread by the media is getting out of hand. The Left used to say that corporate money in politics was evil and terrible. Now they insist corporations speak out against policies they (the Left) oppose.

 

President Biden referred to it as “Jim Crow on steroids .” Joe went farther and sought to destroy parts of Georgia’s economy by calling for Major League Baseball to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia. 

All he is doing is helping to hurt the Georgia economy and stoke more racial division. Guess who works these baseball games in Atlanta?  Not rich white people.  States set the voting laws, not the President. 

I would tell MLB to cite the specific items they are troubled with and why. Where is the verbiage or evidence that it harms “people of color” differently?  How? This is another example of pandering to minorities to appear woke. I was looking forward to baseball this year, but now baseball is getting involved in politics again (kneeling last year) and that is enough for me.

San Diego public school teachers required to attend ‘white privilege’ training

Teaching “white fragility” will do zero to help students improve their scholastic abilities — it only serves activist educators who want to shift the guilt to “systemic racism.” Parents should be pissed off;  public schools are designed to help the public good, not far-left activists’ private ideological illusions. We need to educate students on essential reading, writing, and mathematics—not white fragility, intersectionality, and antiracism.  God help our country.
