EDITORIAL: The Pentagonís war on the American dream - Military institute promotes class warfare

Military institute promotes class warfare

If a Defense Department instructor dares to say the country is at war with Islam, he will swiftly find himself out of a job. On the other hand, stereotyping white people as racists or saying the American dream is a myth is rewarded with a diploma.

At issue is an online course called Power and Privilege offered by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, which Defense created to assist “its customers in optimizing their mission readiness and capabilities by promoting human dignity through equity education, diversity, cultural competency, research and consultation world-wide.” The institute has more than 30,000 uniformed and civilian graduates who are “maintaining the DOD reputation as a place where all individuals have infinite dignity and worth.”

Well, most individuals, anyway. Those who are not members of a protected minority group may find their dignity to be something less than infinite. Historian and documentary filmmaker David A. Stein took the Power and Privilege course and posted slides on the Republican Party Animals website. It definitely is a learning experience.

Big surprise, right? Liberalism has infected our military just as it has infected other parts of our society.

Looks like contractor office politics, where a Salvadoran commie witch can have a prior combat soldier booted with a screech and a wink.

There’s also the situation where a Cuban witch had a veteran fired from a contractor’s office.

If Romney and Ryan win, they are going to have to do some Spring cleaning in every department of the government. Every day we read more and more outrageous policies in our government.

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967

Ronald Reagan’s warning about losing our freedoms echoes down through a generation of lost momentum and squandered opportunity.

We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.

Maybe we are just too damn late to save it.

Once had a “spook” as a close friend and he told me the US had been heavily infiltrated by the Russians. This article comes as no surprise as it is probably as a result of decades long placement of moles inside our establishment.

Ultimately, the failure of the Russians (and Chinese) reckoning on the US as their enemy will dawn on them as they themselves become victims of their own scheming. Also, the truth is that Mr. Putin and his counterparts in the Communist party in China like to live very well. It is difficult to do if you kill the golden goose- the U.S.A..

It is long past time for American Patriots to develop their own grassroots doctrines of “soft warfare.”

Thanks for the ping.

Sounds like Obama’s “you didn’t build that”.

From the article:

“According to the institute, the “ideology of the American dream” is simply a manufactured idea used to keep the underclass in its place. It is part of the “myth of meritocracy,” which is the misguided “belief that people get out of the system what they put into it based on individual merit.” Only suckers fall for that one, according to this taxpayer-funded outfit.”

This is the globally-influenced military that is increasingly unable to prevail against even the most rag-tag rabbles in any Third World Hell Hole.

While I feel sorry for any idyllic patriots who joined up, gallantly thinking they would become warriors, sacrificing and risking everything to defend their nation and it’s people and way of life, I’m quite glad the military wastes so much time indoctrinating them in all this kind of PC crap. This is time not spent training in combat, so that when they do come against us - and rest assured this is what is being planned - we will find them as easy to defeat as the Somalis and Taliban and Vietnamese did.

This sounds like the work of the Socialist International’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which argues that the global community must work collectively to address environmental policies.

Carol Browner, dedicated leftist and formerly administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, worked on this Commission.
