Radical left-wing policies are destroying critical parts of America’s defense.
They aren’t willing to accept fundamental biological facts.
Tucker Carlson made a dangerous enemy by exposing a national security disaster.
The Pentagon condemned Fox News host Tucker Carlson because he criticized the woke policies that are taking over the military.
John Kirby, the press secretary for the Department of Defense, accused Carlson of “[using] his show to denigrate the contributions of women in the military and to say the Chinese military is catching up to the U.S. military because it does not allow women to serve in the percentage the United States does,” according to a story from DoD News, titled “Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military.”
Carlson compared the Chinese military, which now has the largest navy in the world, with the American military which is preoccupied with “new hairstyles and maternity flight suits.”
“Pregnant women are going to fight our wars,” Carlson said. “It’s a mockery of the U.S. military.”
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and service members allegedly felt “revulsion” toward Carlson’s monologue, according to Kirby.
“We are better and more effective, not only when we represent the American people, all the American people, but also when we have the morals to include other perspectives and ideas,” Kirby continued. “A major and specific contributor to that advantage are the women who serve, civilian and military alike.”
“I would hope that in the reaction he’s seeing, and hopefully in our reaction here today, that he’ll realize the mistake he made and express some regret about the manner in which he’s demeaned the entire U.S. military and how we defend and how we serve this country,” Kirby added.
Carlson responded by saying, “Here’s a reminder: the U.S. military exists to fight and win wars. That is its only purpose. The U.S. military is not an NGO. It is not a vehicle for achieving equity. It is not a social experiment. It’s definitely not an employment agency; nobody has a God-given right to work in the military… It’s not about us, it’s about the country. Making people feel valued and included is a good thing, but it is not the point of the U.S. military. It cannot be the point of the U.S. military, or else we’re done.”
Carlson questioned how America will respond if China attacks Taiwan or if China decides to try and cripple the American economy. “Can the U.S. military still win a real war?” he asked.
“Those are the questions that matter. Those are the only questions that matter, which may be why Joe Biden wants to talk about maternity flight suits.” Carlson concluded by saying.
