The Democrats see the opportunity to remake the military in a radical way.
They’re destroying America’s safety for their political agenda.
Joe Biden ordered the military to do one thing that crossed a major line.
Democrats are highly concerned about former President Donald Trump’s supporters and view them as a huge problem.
According to a poll from Echelon Insights, 82% of Democrats said that Trump’s supporters were their chief concern. Their next concern was “white nationalism.”
Many Democrats believe that there’s no difference between a Trump voter and a white nationalist.
“Voting for Trump is a choice to aid and abet racism and white supremacy,” Washington Post’s Global Opinions Editor Karen Attiah wrote. “And yes, some minorities can (and do) reinforce systemic white supremacy.”
A report declassified March 1st by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security named both pro-life and pro-abortion activists on a list of domestic violent extremist groups.
This is why it’s scary that the Pentagon is looking into better screening recruits’ and service members’ social media to get rid of “extremism” in the United States military, according to a recent memo from Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
The Pentagon has never defined what it means by “extremism” but that hasn’t stopped Austin from setting up a “Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG),” which will have a representative from each military service.
One of the CEWG’s four lines of efforts (LOE) includes trying to comb through troops’ and recruits’ social media for posts that might be considered extremist.
“This LOE will examine the Department’s pursuit of scalable and cost effective capabilities to screen publically [sic] available information in accessions and continuous vetting for national security positions. The LOE will make recommendations on further development of such capabilities and incorporating algorithms and additional processing into social media screening platforms. This LOE will also endeavor to develop policy to expand user activity monitoring of both classified and unclassified systems.”
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said the Pentagon was exploring how to do this in a “legal, lawful way.”
Kirby added in a briefing on Friday that “this is about the kind of extremist ideology that is based on extreme hatred or discrimination on, based on ethnicity and discrimination based on someone’s personal background.”
Another line of effort (LOE) is to make sure training addresses “issues raised by commanders and supervisors on ‘gray areas’ such as reading, following, and liking extremist material and content in social media forums and platforms.” Those “gray areas” are not identified, but during the stand-down period, the senior enlisted leader in the military, Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Ramón “CZ” Colón-López, expressed concerns to reporters that troops “from every echelon” saw Black Lives Matter riots in the same negative way as riots at the Capitol on January 6th, according to Military.com.
