Alan West On Military “Diversity”

As if the US armed forces didn’t have enough on their plate at the moment, the Military Leadership Diversity Commission released a report last week informing the military that there were too many white males in their ranks. The report was ordered as a result of the 2009 National Defense Authorisation Act. Just read this sick Marxist rubbish-

“Leveraging diversity as a vital strategic military resource will require the commitment, vision, and know-how of leaders at every level. Without this commitment to instill respect for diversity as a core value, the needed cultural change may not take place.”

Rep Alan West, a potential Republican Presidential contender is extremely unhappy with the report, saying that the military is not a social experiment for outside groups to impose their theories. Rather, he said, it is a merit based organization where anybody can succeed.

“Everyone that comes into the military has an equal opportunity to get promoted to the next level. It is not about outside entities trying to engineer and design results and outcomes or create a sense of equal achievement and when some military diversity group writes a report saying there are too many white men on top, it is kind of a slap in the face to those who have risen through the ranks. [..] We don’t need these outside entities trying to design or shape a military. We are engaged with a very vicious enemy in two combat areas and who knows what is going to happen in North Africa and the Middle East and now is not the time for us to stop and start sensitivity training.”

Damn right. West is under no misapprehension at all as to what this is really all about-

“The military stands for things that liberals don’t care for: standards, discipline, honor, character. And those are things they don’t like because they believe everyone should be equal…that is not what the military is all about.”

  1. “…that is not what the military is all about.”

    When you get down to it, that is not what America is all about.

    We on the Right have allowed the leaders of the party that is supposed to stand firm in support of American values to incrementally compromise our principles.

    My whole life I’ve been castigated for being too rigid. I watched helplessly as one ally after another gave into relentless appeals to “be pragmatic, be reasonable, understand what’s achievable.” In most cases, these were appeals to look the other way rather than fight to defend constant values. Being mocked too often by lines such as “Is this the molehill you would die defending?” have taken their toll.

    This is why Incrementalism is damnable, so incrementalists be damned!

    We and our children are now far out to sea, far from home, most without a notion of how to paddle having been raised expecting others to paddle for them.

    Pray Alan West represents a resurgent America, and that it is not too late.


  2. Good point Sinner. But the one that claims to be is filled with DAMNED SKUNCs. So it would be nice to have at least one we could count on.
