When you join the military, essentially everything you are taught can be broken down into two main categories. The first category is how to perform your duties while in the military. This encompasses everything from maintaining your uniform, understanding command structure, and the specific skills of your specialization while serving.
The second category would be learning about your enemy. The purpose here is that should you ever be asked to fight that enemy, you will be more prepared to take them on.
So this leads to a somewhat troubling question regarding the second category. Why is the military leadership suddenly teaching soldiers that America is the enemy?
In case you’ve missed it, the American military leadership has gone full “woke” in recent years and especially in the last year. Replacing classes about combat tactics and survival techniques with classes about equity and systemic racism.
As I’m sure you’re well aware, such woke topics aren’t really about racism or equity, they are about framing American history and American values as evil, and as something that needs to be taken down.
This is why Marxists groups like BLM try to push the notion that the traditional American family structure is inherently racist. They’ve since removed such language from their official fundraising website, but its original inclusion gives you plenty of evidence of their true goal and the goals of others who describe America as inherently racist. Their goal is to tear down or destroy what has made America great and a beacon of hope for so many around the world.
So going back to the issue of our military leaders now teaching this same ideology to our enlisted men and woman, one must question what their motivations truly are.
As I wrote earlier, one of the two things you are taught when you join the military is the nature of your enemy. So is our military leadership teaching soldiers who their next enemy will be? Are they conditioning our enlisted men and women to be more willing to turn on American citizens when asked?
It would make sense that if you fill a soldier’s head with ideas that America is filled with racists who oppress the majority of the population, it wouldn’t be a far stretch to then ask that soldier to turn on those oppressors. Unfortunately, in this case those “oppressors” they are being taught about are everyday, law-abiding citizens of America who happen to hold traditional, conservative values.
Now let me be clear, I’m not suggesting the military is planning an immediate attack on U.S. citizens in middle America. But what I am asking is why is the military leadership starting to teach enlisted men and women that the list of American enemies includes the American people. This to me seems incredibly wrong-headed and something you will not see in any well functioning military or society.
But for the sake of fairness, I do want to point out another possible explanation for this. It could be that much like in other corrupt governments, our military leaders are now part of the political ruling class, and as such, have adopted the same “trendy” beliefs as those around them without fully understanding their impact. But even if this is the case and our military leadership is simply following the trends of corporations and Hollywood elitists, it doesn’t make it any less troubling or less destructive in the long run.
For now, you’ll have to decide for yourself what the real reason is behind the sudden decision to teach our soldiers that America is inherently evil and unfair. But one thing that can’t be questioned is the fact that it’s going to become extremely difficult to find people to serve a country that they are taught is evil and not worth defending.
