Americans argue over the historical and political issues that will determine the future of the nation. The controversial debates lead to the tribalization and balkanization of America, much like the ethnic conflicts in Yugoslavia that dismembered this Balkan nation in the late 20th century.
The American thinker columnist John Green fears that America’s âfoundations of freedom and libertyâ are threatened by political and social division and a âBalkanization towards mob ruleâ. Green says there is “a growing grievance industry pitting citizens against citizens as America falls apart into rival tribes who destroy the American melting pot.”
Green believes that “the diversity training industry encourages segregation based on race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation.” The politicized FBI, Green claims, is âlooking for allegedly white male conservative extremistsâ while ignoring the riots and violence of the BLM and ANTIFA. Green claims that a “lawful trial” is dwarfed because “defense witnesses were intimidated by the mob”. Constitutional protection “fades into insignificance and Americans are taught to distrust one another and despise America”.
The “Woke” protagonists and many so-called “experts” on science, Covid-19, climate change and gender were wrong, political and influenced by funding and fame. “Political Science.
World War II General and 1950s President Dwight David Eisenhower warned in his farewell speech that citizens must be cautious and critical of the military-industrial complex. Less well known was Ike’s warning to be suspicious of âexpertsâ with prejudice, financial interests and intentions, as Seton Motley enumerated in his article âFake Scientists, Big Tech and Academicsâ.
Eisenhower warned that “the councilors” gain “undue influence and power” that “endanger our freedoms and democratic processes.”
John Green uses Eisenhower’s admonitions as a “warning of the military’s sinking in the Deep State” and attributes Eisenhower to “very foresight”. Green regrets that today’s military has gone “from performance-based to wake up”; and “traditionalist military personnel will be driven out of the armed forces.” Conservative, nationalist, patriotic military personnel who allegedly pose a threat to national security when it comes to left-wing “wokeism”.
Eisenhower’s warning that public order could become captive to “a scientific and technical elite” was particularly astute.
Seton Motley believes that today’s âbig techâ is dictated by public order, critics of censorship and supported by big media’s âfake newsâ.
The US military is forced to adhere to a politically correct dogma and critical racial theory that undermines military values, training, patriotism, and missionary unity.
US Army combat veteran Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) told Breitbart News that critical racial theory is “a Marxist ideology that defines class struggle along racial lines and destroys unit morale and cohesion.”
Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz criticized PC Woke’s military indoctrination of military personnel and was quoted by reporter Tom Batchelor as saying, “A woken up, emasculated military is not the best idea.” Cruz contrasted the Russian and American recruitment campaigns , the former traditional, the latter politically correct, and woke.
Examples of left programming in the U.S. Forces are given in Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier’s book Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military highlighted. For his knowledge and courage, the US Air Force Commander was removed from command of the Space Force.
The indoctrination program Woke, claims Lohmeier, is weakening the military. New York Post columnist Samuel Chamberlain cites Lohmeier’s claim that the new training teaches military personnel that “America is racist and evil” and that “this agenda will divide us, not unite”.
It remains to be seen whether this military and maritime training agenda will produce this result before it is stopped.
