Barack Obama is using the U.S. Military for his own personal social experimentation laboratory.
Whether it’s the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell”, opening up the military to the “gender-confused”, or pushing to get women into all combat roles (including elite groups like the SEALS and Rangers), the Obama Administration is far more concerned about advancing the minority rights of tiny groups of people in the military rather than protecting America from foreign enemies.
This push to “tolerance and diversity” will have huge detrimental ramifications for the strength of the U.S. military if nothing is done to reverse the President’s leftist-extremist agenda.
Now, one experienced general is predicting the weakening of the military in order to accommodate all of Obama’s “social experimentation.” CNS News has the story:
Marine Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, said at a Pentagon press briefing on Friday that he believes that future generals will face “great pressure” to lower the standards for women in combat in order to get more women into combat roles.
“My greatest fear—and we see this happen a lot over the 45 years I’ve been in the Armed Forces–is right now they’re saying we are not going to change any standards,” said Kelly. “There will be great pressure, whether it’s 12 months from now, four years from now, because the question will be asked whether we’ve let women into these other roles, why aren’t they staying in those other roles?
“Why aren’t they advancing as infantry people—persons–I guess? Why aren’t they becoming, you know, more senior?” he said. “And the answer is–I think will be–if we don’t change standards, it will be very, very difficult to have any numbers, any real numbers, come into the infantry, or the Rangers or the Seals, but that’s their business.”
“So,” said Kelly, “I think it will be the pressure for not probably the generals that are here now, but for the generals to come, and admirals, to lower standards because that’s the only way it’ll work in the way that I hear some people, particularly, the agenda-driven people here in Washington–or in the land–the way they want it to work.
This is shocking! The Obama Administration vehemently denies it will lower standards for women to achieve combat positions, but the reality is that women have lower physical standards in the military already.
Forcing lower standards onto the military to accommodate women in combat roles is just one ACLU lawsuit away.
CNS News has more from the General:
Question: I have a question. I have a question. Women in combat. Of course, the Marines were against opening all ground combat jobs to women. They were overruled by the defense secretary. The Marine report found that mixed-gender units were less lethal, slower, more prone to injuries than all-male units.
Talk about the way ahead on this. How can they put this into effect, what concerns you in the way ahead with this?
