American policy now officially demands a focus on identity politics.
The main crux of this piece comes to us from Jim Hanson.
The memo Jim posted starts out by the Department of Defense defining itself as a party applicable to a February 4th memo issued by President Biden. One in which he demanded the “promoting and protecting the human rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) persons.”
The US military are essentially being reduced to the role of political activists.
The Department of Defense lists several ways in which they’ll carry out Biden’s policy:
- “Strengthen existing efforts to combat the criminalization by foreign governments of LGBTQI+ status or conduct and expand efforts to combat discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, and intolerance on the basis of LGBTQI+ status or conduct.”
- “Expand ongoing efforts to ensure regular DoD engagement with governments, citizens, civil society, and the private sector to promote respect for the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons and combat discrimination.”
- “Consider the impact of programs funded by DoD on human rights, including the rights of LGBTQI+ persons, when making funding decisions.”
- “Strengthen the work DoD has done and initiate additional efforts with other nations, bilaterally and within multilateral fora and international organizations, to: counter discrimination on the basis of LGBTQI+ status or conduct; broaden the number of countries willing to support and defend the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons; strengthen the role, including in multilateral fora, of civil society advocates on behalf of the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons; and strengthen the policies and programming of multilateral institutions, including with respect to protecting vulnerable LGBTQI+ refugees and asylum seekers.”
In recent days Fox News host Tucker Carlson has faced controversy for criticizing the military’s focus shift to identity politics. It was also recently revealed that Biden’s executive orders are forcing taxpayer dollars to fund gender transition surgeries for military service members.
White House insider Jack Posobiec also recently got an inside look at how the military is dealing with the extremism stand down order. One commenter mentioned how none of the slides presented dealt with those condemning former President Trump, nor those who support Jihad activity or BLM/Antifa riots. Another Air Force member complained how members of the military are being programmed to accept a particular narrative when it relates to extremism: one that focuses entirely on right-wing activity and completely excuses leftist radicalization.
