Via email from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
Ignoring the controversy over critical race theory didn’t go so well for the Left. So they tried denying it. That was a bust. Now, they’ve moved on to a new strategy: digging in and defending it — and, considering the latest clash over the military, that might be the worst idea of all.
When the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, came to testify on the latest defense budget, a handful of Republicans took the opportunity to put the country’s top general on the hot seat over the wildly unpopular move to teach CRT in the ranks — starting with America’s service academies.
When conservatives pressed Milley on the complaints they’ve heard from cadets and others, Milley was openly strident. And the irony is, this is the same General Milley who tried to distance himself from the White House under Donald Trump.
When Milley publicly apologized for standing outside of St. John’s Church with the former president, he said he shouldn’t have appeared in uniform with Trump because it was “too political.”
Well, what does he think this is? Critical race theory is just about the most political issue there is. If Milley truly cared about being “neutral,” then he would stand up and fight this woke administration trying to radically remake our military.
Fortunately, there are still people on the inside (and outside) willing to fight for decency, free speech, religious liberty, and the other proud traditions of our fighting force.
