A few months ago, Tucker Carlson caught serious backlash for calling out the partisan ideological direction that the US military was taking.
Little did anyone know at the time how severe the situation was.
According to The Federalist, CIA Director William Burns sent a memo to the staff at his agency praising the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial. One would’ve assumed that the CIA would express concerns about jurors admitting the threat of riots biased them, or the admission that at least one juror had an ulterior political agenda prior to the trial proceedings themselves.
Despite these issues, Burns applauded the guilty verdict as “one step forward” and said the CIA should focus on this “accountability issue.”
But The Federalist also notes: "The CIA is prohibited from becoming involved in domestic law enforcement affairs but did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment about the legality of the memo."
The outlet then goes on to reflect the politicized direction that the highest offices in Washington DC have now taken. A dilemma that’s highlighted in a CIA recruitment video that’s recently caught public attention.
A video that depicts a CIA recruit pandering to their identity politics “I’m a woman of color, I’m a mom [...] I’m intersectional” the video says. At one point the narrator talks about standing against “misguided patriarchal ideas.”
Leaving many to wonder what that means.
When it comes to the identity politics shift in policy direction for the various departments of military and intelligence in the US, there’s differing degrees to explore. Measures like allowing transgendered people to enlist in the military (also taxpayers funding transition surgeries), or edicts allowing the LGBT pride flag to be flown alongside the American flag at US embassies, are seemingly mild on their own.
Prioritizing someone’s sexual preference or preferred gender in top leadership positions, like the recent assistant Secretary of Defense announcements, are also considerable.
Instead the main point of focus is the aftermath of the January 6th riots and the lasting impact it had on the US military. It didn’t stop with just the Pentagon evolving their social media background check screenings to look for “strong conservative elements.”
No, the Biden administration explicitly altered the entire policy of US armed forces to demand LGBTQI+ enforcement. Which trickles down to military training procedures pushing progressive rhetoric in their powerpoints.
In early April the Department of Defense issued new directives to “counter extremism in the department.”
Former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell told The Federalist: “Our CIA agents are not racist or intolerant. This stunt clearly signals Bill Burns is politicizing the Agency … If he really thinks the CIA tolerates race trauma and ‘persistent inequity’ then he, as a straight white male, must resign immediately to make way for a CIA Director that is a gay person of color. Everything else is just talk for Bill.”
