Internal Army Poll: Only 26% of Officers Say Army Headed in Right Direction--'Political

(CNSNews.com) – Is the U.S. Army headed in the right direction?

An internal Army survey that was conducted in 2011 and published this year discovered that only 26 percent of active-duty Army officers say yes--and that one of the two main themes cited by those who say no is that the Army is now adversely impacted by "political correctness" imposed by both outside policymakers and senior Army leaders.

The 26 percent who said the Army was headed in the right direction in 2011 was the lowest percentage who gave that response since the Army began conducting this survey in 2005. It was also significant drop from the 33 percent who had said the Army was heading in the right direction in 2010.

In the 2011 survey, in contrast to the 26 percent who said the Army was heading in the right direction, 38 percent said it was headed in the wrong direction and another 36 percent remained neutral on the topic, neither agreeing nor disagreeing that the army is heading in the right direction.

Is that the 26 per cent that will order our soldiers to fire on our civilian population?

Wow! This is one poll I love seeing. The troops know what’s going on and they don’t like it.

But the military has to turn out as a captive audience when this disgraceful CIC shows up for campaign photo ops as he did at Ft. Bliss in El Paso today. That is just a shame, to use the military as campaign props.

Yep, and it bothers me too. This guy isn’t fit to shine their shoes. And lest someone get the wrong idea, I’d say this if he was White and pulled the crap he has.

This anti-American piece of trash needs to go.

Those 26% better hope that it is Obama who wins the election.

On the other hand, this will make it easier to identify which officers Romney’s new Sec of Defense should get rid of.

Their vote will be known——and with the unleashing of sodomy as “good” and “noble” ....and with all the Lesbian/homosexual preferences putting evil people in high command-—they do not want to expose their backs, so to say. They will be targeted.

It is what Machiavelli stated-—that Virtue was necessary for any military. We have the Commander in Chief forcing Vice as “good” into the military—replacing Christian Ethics which always ruled—with Satanic ethics—ethics where they glorify degrading, debasing acts.

Virtue will be killed. Matter of time. Good people will not stay in that type of environment where men look on other men with lust. It is sick—why women in the military training with the men is a stupid, destructive idea also.

But—these Marxists know that (feminists/communists forced women to train with men—that radical egalitarianism which pretends women are interchangeable with men—they want to destroy the military from within since it was too strong to nail from outside.

As the article by Scott Lively stated-—homosexuals are some of the most fascist, brutal people. They have no morality-—they do any dehumanizing acts and they WILL destroy anyone in the way of their ideology and urges.

Yes, I’d suspect that all of them are affirmative action poster-children (or homosexuals) promoted under BJ Clinton or The Sultan.

Id think the military more than any other group has cause to detest Obama, between the social engineering and aimless campaigns slowly killing American servicemen.

Susie, this is why many of my former comrades are leaving service; the environment is horrendous, with the Frankenstein social experiments.

Now, in my decades of service, I have known virtuous, valiant women warriors, with whom I was proud to serve.
I also knew girls, shallow and pusilanimous in conduct, who my marine cohorts referred to as "mattress covers".
And I knew womyn, who were there to drive home The Agenda.

Irish, you're quite right. But it's specifically the VETERANS who more than any group are detesting the Kenyan Usurper.

Being in the Army (I’m a Major), I get a lot of surveys to answer, but I don’t recall being asked to complete this survey. I’m not saying it didn’t happen, but it wasn’t a survey of all officers.

I wonder who was asked to complete this survey, and who conducted it.

It is because you Veterans weren’t brainwashed with 12 years of public schooling which is literally destroying the Christian Ethic in the children. Their promotion of sodomy starts in Kindergarten NOW—for over two decade-—Heather has two Mommies-—oh, how sweet. (No mention of this hatred, sexist attitude for the biological father of Heather). Marxism teaches divide and hate-—identity politics—to destroy unity and love. Insert Sex—for jealousy and resentment-—it will cause chaos every time. With homosexuals among men-—you have it. Favors for their “lovers” and power over young recruits—easy pickins-—Good guys who resist will be thrown out.

These creepy social engineers—are created by the Marxists, like Billy Ayers who have been writing and controlling curricula for years to destroy the “thinking” of our children. It is to destroy us from within. All Cultural Marxism designed by Lukacs/Marcuse and put into our schools and media will destroy Virtue in our children-—which will destroy our nation. We need God back in the schools and Christian Ethics the only Standard of Right and Wrong which was how it was designed to be in our Constitution-— until the sodomites and feminist Communists, who want to destroy the Patriarchy, got complete control of ALL our institutions now. ALL of them since the PC in the military (Mao’s concept) got forced into it by the Marxists in Congress.

Radical egalitarianism-—to make men and women interchangeable—so two men can sodomize each other and children have to think it “Good”. Just like the thinking of the little Afghani boys who live in harems. Great Culture!! Treats women like breeders. Women better wake up. They will eventually be second class citizens in homosexual cultures-—always have been.

My son was in the military recently with DADT, thank goodness-—was in Afghanistan when Bush was in control—but the PC cr*p had already started. It was not like what my father had in WWII. His whole unit were lifelong buddies (no sodomites) who even traveled to my father’s funeral and gave a speech. He was in his 80’s.

Our whole country is being corrupted from within. Morality and Men of Character being destroyed. It has to be turned around quick-—or it will collapse exactly like Rome did amid their homosexual orgies where even kids were used. There is no “next” generation. They eat their own.

Susie, the homosexual agenda is, was, and will be always about one thing: Unrestricted Access To Young Flesh. I saw it even way back in my Eagle Scout days, in the 70’s and 80’s.

Homosexuality was cause for separation under UCMJ under Chapter 15 of Relief from Military Service. Not sure if it’s even applicable anymore...

You said it yourself: “There is no “next” generation. They eat their own.”

Most likely, Ma’am, it was a targeted survey, like a push poll.

It started going to crap in the ‘80’s when we couldn’t sing “Naphalm Sticks to Kids” anymore.

I’ve been in politically correct enviroments (state school, the workplace), but what is happening in the military is bizarre. Maybe it happens at all places of government employment; I wouldn’t know.

The affirmative action that has destroyed the ability of many whites to raise families has now spread into an arena where lives are on the line; no matter how many movies they show with minority/female war heroes, they should be judged solely on their merits without the freak utopia goal in mind to determine outcomes.

We have way to many top brass with 30-40 years in that do more golfing and partying that need to be retired and the working lower ranks moved up, instead of being told to resign before they have their 20 years in.

That is how democrats and RINOs do it. They sidle up and smile in front of the troops, smile while shaking their hands and patting them on the back whenever there’s a camera in the same hemisphere, then return to their lairs and stab them in the backs, plot to emasculate them, cut their budgets, and define rules of engagement that turn them into bullet magnets. Been there, done that for 20 years. Politicians are, with almost no exception, pathetic excuses for human beings. Worthless.
