Opinion: It’s Time to Wake the Woke

Do we need any further proof of the impact of the Woke culture than General Mark Milley? Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is the highest-ranked officer in the U.S. military and the principal advisor to the National Security Council, Homeland Security Council, the Pentagon, and the President. Milley was one of the four key members of the team that put together the failed plan to evacuate Afghanistan. Milley, Biden, Harris, and Blinken were the architects of a plan that resulted in the Afghan Army dissolving overnight, the Taliban taking control of Afghanistan in just days, the death of 13 brave heroes of our military, and the stranding of 200 Americans. The details of this plan will not become a credit course at our military academies. Sadly, though, Critical Race Theory has become a required part of the curriculum. This addition to our military culture is supported by Mark Milley.

Critical Race Theory has been one of the available courses in liberal colleges for some time. It is a facet of the woke indoctrination that students are subjected to in today’s education system. It is a problem generating tremendous angst for parents who are flooding school board meetings to voice their displeasure. You would think that our military academies would be insulated from such controversial and dangerous subject matter. That is not the case with the Biden White House and Pentagon.

When Milley testified before Congress last month, there were heated exchanges between him and Republican members of Congress. Milley seemed uncomfortable defending CRT and spoke to White Rage and how he wanted to understand the concept. This was very disturbing coming from the highest-ranking member of our military. Why is the man responsible for the safety and security of our country so focused on race theory? That’s an excellent question as nobody in the White House circles under Trump was preaching the virtues of CRT, so how did the entire military machine go woke in seven months? The military is rotting from the head down. This falls squarely on the Commander in Chief and if not so woke, maybe thirteen heroes would have come home healthy and alive to their families.

This woke breakdown in our society is now prevalent in policing and criminal justice systems at the local level. We are cutting back, defunding, police while doing away with prosecuting the violators that are apprehended. Cities like New York and San Francisco are paying felons for not committing crimes. That makes abiding by the law a full-time job for criminals. Schools are now more concerned with assuring gender neutrality and inclusion than math skills. Rather than lifting up the weaker students, we are dragging down the elite to create a more “equal” student.

How do any of these liberal and woke programs create a better society? They don’t….period. They are breaking it down, dumbing it down. They are eliminating a need for creativity, ingenuity, and the risk that drives entrepreneurs to discover ways to enhance our lives. They want to do away with our system of capitalism that has given us the one country on earth that people will walk thousands of miles to make their home.

One thing you will never hear from someone who pushes the “Woke Way” is what they are working towards. They have no plan but just random thoughts that result in them feeling good but society being weaker. Whether it is your child’s kindergarten class, your young person’s overpriced university, your local justice system, or our troops defending us around the world, it is time to wake up and get back to the basics. We have been the beacon of success because we have given opportunity to all, not a payout to everyone. Equality or equity is an excuse for those who don’t want to put in the effort. Equal opportunity is the path that will continue to raise us all. Opportunity with accountability or woke and stagnation? I’ll take the former and hope the woke will wake up and join us.

  1. Milley ought to embrace all of the Woke culture BS and shave his legs, get breast implants, start wearing a dress so he can look like the scared little woman he is acting like.

  2. Our military is being eroded from the top down. Only a few brave officers in the military have the guts to risk their careers by speaking out against the liberal drivel that is being forced on the military by the “woke” politicians and bureaucrats in the Washington, D.C. swamp.

    The fact is that the upper military brass is dominated, not by true leaders, but cogs in the military bureaucracy that seek only to further their own careers by becoming boot licking flunkies and not making any waves. That is the safe course of action, not one taken by strong, bold leaders. Gen. Milley is a good example of the weak, faint-hearted officers who are in positions of command today.

    One officer who is bucking the system is Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, a U.S. Space Force commander, who was relieved of his command for making comments about the leftist claptrap like critical race theory, and the promotion of racial divisions that is currently being imposed on the military. Lt. Col. Lohmeier, an Air Force Academy graduate, put his career on the line in order to stand up for his convictions and fight the corrosive brainwashing that is now required for all members of the military. He has also written a book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military”, in which he details the left’s campaign to destroy the military.

    Unfortunately, true leaders like Lt. Col. Lohmeier are few and far between. Sadly, we are stuck with Milley and the rest of the “woke” pentagon crowd.
