Army dumps SJW role, new focus: Train to kill bad guys

The Army was into SJW before it was even a thing…

For those who follow this sort of thing, it’s not exactly a big shocker that the US Army has been at the cutting edge of social engineering for decades.

For us old enough to remember the crippling effects of “McNamara’s 100,000,” many wondered if the US military would ever survive Lyndon Johnson’s SecDef Robert Strange McNamara lowering the standards to allow into the armed forces “men with criminal records, medical defects, social maladjustments and psychiatric disorders.”

Nonetheless, the Army welcomed the substandard, the mentally unfit, and the patently stupid with open arms. Another high (low) point for the Democratic Party.

Anyhow, suffice it to say the Army is now on the cutting edge of:

  • Pregnant paratroopers
  • Normalizing the sexually confused
  • Unwed mother ducking deployments
  • Trailblazing the way for boys-who-think-they’re-girls and girls-who think-they’re-boys
  • Commissioning BLM extremists as officers
Black Power salutes. Sixteen black female cadets in uniform at the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.  The 16 are now commissioned officers in the US Army.

Pay no attention to the fact that the Army paid for Pvt Bradly Manning’s sex change treatment while in a guest at the Cross-Bar Hotel (AKA: Ft Leavenworth), or that Beau Bergdahl, of Obama’s famous “I’ll give you a slew of terrorists for one deserter” fame, was actually kicked out of US Coast Guard Boot Camp very early in training due to “psychological reasons”.

The Army was more than happy to recruit this mental defective. But hey, maybe the Army was running short of ballet dancers.

Shown here is Bowe Bergdahl, with an unidentified dancer, in his ballet days.

Many have openly wondered if the Army would ever shake its self-induced SJW madness.

Maybe they finally have.

While under the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations, the Army focused on small groups of highly trained special ops troops to take on the likes of ISIS, the Taliban, Boko Haram, etc.

But with the fall of the Soviet Union just a handful of years before the War on Terror, the US Army was, well… pretty much out of a job.



Instead of protecting ungrateful Germans from never-ending numbers of Russkie armored and mechanized infantry divisions hammering through the Fulda Gap, the new Army mission was to take up the battle standard of political correctness.

Bubba and Hillary could not have been happier. But along came Donald.

As reported by the Washington Examiner;

Fighting will now take precedence over dealing with transitioning transgender troops, drug abuse and other issues as the Army seeks to overhaul its training regimen to hone its soldiers’ battlefield skills.

In a series of servicewide memorandums approved by Army Secretary Mark Esper and Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and obtained by The Washington Times, service leaders are making optional previously mandatory training on issues such as transgender transition and drug abuse. The move, Army leaders argue, is designed to relieve stress on the overburdened troop training regimen and refocus on soldiers’ ability to fight in combat.

Army officials are codifying the new marching orders into servicewide training guidelines and doctrine, which will bring the Army more in line with the Pentagon’s new National Defense Strategy, Col. O’Grady said.

The strategy, which was one of Defense Secretary James N. Mattis’ earliest policy initiatives, shifted away from the George W. Bush and Obama-era strategies dominated by battling extremist groups including al Qaeda, the Taliban and Islamic State, and putting the priority on challenging traditional nation-state rivals such as China and Russia. It also placed a greater emphasis on increasing lethality in conventional combat operations.

Along with scaling back noncombat training mandates, service leaders are also extending the time soldiers spend in infantry training. Soldiers graduating from the nine-week basic training course will now spend an additional two months in “advanced individual training” before heading to their first duty stations.

Additional combat training after Recruit Training but before shipping out to PMOS (Primary Military Occupational Specialty) school is something the Marine Corps has been doing for decades.

California: History teacher canned for displaying USA and CSA flags while teaching about the Civil War

Not only is the re-writing of history moving forward full steam ahead, the PC Gestapo conditioning of the nation’s children at government-run schools are squashing anyone who’s heterodox teaching methods rock the status quo boat.

As noted by The American Thinker’s Steve Byas, an instructor of history and government at Randall University, in Moore, Oklahoma, 70-year-old US History teacher Woody Hart of Rancho Cordova was forced to submit his request for retirement by the School Board.

The catalyst for Hart’s forced retirement? Displaying an 1865 period US flag as well as the Confederate Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia in his class.

Not that 1865 Union and Confederate flags usually fly in Mr. Hart’s classroom, he just so happened to be teaching his students of the Recent Unpleasantness.

As (partially) reported by Byas; (Emphasis mine)

“He’s personally my favorite teacher in the whole school,” Ana Kneisely told CBS Sacramento, in reference to a middle school American History teacher, Woody Hart, in Rancho Cordova, California, who was forced to retire by the Board of Education.

Hart, a 70-year-old teacher at Suttle Middle School of the Folsom Cordova United School District, was ousted after using a Confederate battle flag, along with a period United States flag, as part of a lesson on the U.S. Civil War. The school’s superintendent, Deborah Bettencourt, released a statement late last week that the board of education had “accepted this Sutter Middle School teacher’s retirement … and he will not be returning to school this year.”

In an interview with the local CBS affiliate, KCRA, Ana Kneisely, one of Hart’s students, explained what had happened. “We just came in and we saw the Union Flag on one side of the room and the Confederate Flag on the other side of the room.”

Apparently, this was typical of the way Hart taught. “I actually very much appreciated the way he taught history,” Kneisely said. “I felt that we were getting more involved than what our other classes did.”

For example, Hart used the two flags of the opposing sides in the Civil War to create interest. The two hanging flags were part of Hart’s lesson, as students were members of one of the two armies.

Kneisely added that she did not understand why Hart’s display of the flag of one of the two sides involved in the war was controversial, considering that the flags, including the Confederate flag, are also used in the textbook for the same purpose.civil_war_flags

Back in November, a black family filed a complaint against Hart for his remarks, in which he explained the unfair way blacks were treated during segregation. Hart told his students that, at one time, some Southerners responded to calls for “black equality” with disdain, saying terrible things such as, “We treat all black people equally. We hang them all.”

The Sacramento chapter of a group calling itself Showing Up for Racial Justice also weighed in, demanding a public apology from Hart.

Apparently, Hart was only relating historical incidents in which people went to the South during those days to promote better treatment and equal rights for blacks, only to be told that they do treat blacks equally — they hang them if they are in-state African-Americans, and they hang them if they are visiting African-Americans. Hart was simply telling the students how terribly blacks were far-too-often treated during that time.

And, with the Confederate battle flag, Hart was teaching his class accurate history as to the use of the flag — in battles during the Civil War.

But the school district argued that it did not really matter how the flag was used during the Civil War; it should not be seen by students today. “We recognize that regardless of context, to many of our students, families, and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate. Although this matter is under investigation, it is important to reiterate: Any employee who is found to engage in behavior that creates an unsafe environment for students will face full consequences, including the possibility of initiating termination proceedings.”

Bettencourt, the superintendent, said that the district’s action did not mean that they were attempting to “limit the free speech of our teachers.” Then, in an Orwellian addition, she stated that she expects “teachers and staff will do this work using culturally appropriate strategies.”

The district statement added, “It is our schools’ responsibility to provide a safe learning environment for all children.”

It is not clear how the display of a flag, which was actually used in many battles during the American Civil War, creates an unsafe learning environment for children. And, exactly what is meant by “culturally appropriate strategies?”

The obvious meaning is that certain events and symbols in history are to be censored — or as George Orwell described it in his classic dystopian novel 1984, some things should be disposed of in the “memory hole.”

Among those things that should be relegated to the “memory hole,” and not even shown to students (because it apparently would make them “unsafe”), is a Confederate battle flag. Since the murders inside a church in South Carolina, in which the killer posted photographs of himself on Facebook along with the flag, there has been an intense offensive against any public display of the historical flag.

The action by this school district raises the question of whether we are to censor history and eliminate certain events and symbols from our collective memory. True historians convey history as it was — the good, the bad, and the ugly — because to do otherwise is simply telling a lie. The very reason we study history is to learn lessons from the collective memory of the human race, both the living and the dead. If certain things are to be excluded from that collective memory, we have crippled ourselves from using the study of history in its proper way.

Today, it is the Confederate battle flag which is to be blotted out from the historical record, because its detractors argue it has been used by racists such as the KKK. Actually, if one examines photographs of Klan rallies, more United States flags are used than Confederate battle flags.

And what are we to do with the Klan practice of burning a cross on someone’s lawn? Should the Christian cross be consigned to oblivion, as well? One suspects there are many who would like to do so, using whatever excuse that they can.

In a prime example of the Establishment Media flat-out pushing fake news, the Sacramento CBS affiliate put their own spin on the faux-controversy;

This is the second time Hart is facing racially charged allegations stemming from a classroom lesson. In November, parents of a teen filed a complaint after they say Hart made remarks during a lesson about equality, saying if you were to hang one black person, you would have to hang all black people.

The parents took exception to the remarks, in part, because their son was the only black student in the classroom.
