Biden's Defense Secretary Thanks Transgenders for Fighting in American Revolution and US Civil War

Western Journal

The “woke” Pentagon this week thanked transgender troops and other members of the LGBT community for winning historic conflicts, including the Civil War — and the hat tip came just days after the Biden administration snubbed D-Day veterans on the anniversary of the invasion of France.

If you’ll recall, President Joe Biden was too busy this week costing Americans their jobs and making food for their families more expensive to thank the men who liberated France and, later, the rest of Europe.

Not a single proclamation, public comment or social media post was issued by the commander-in-chief to honor those who landed at Normandy on June 6, 1944.

Perhaps those men, who were mostly white male teenagers, weren’t ethnically or sexually diverse enough to be honored. Maybe it’s problematic that they didn’t discuss their thoughts on “pride” as their LCVP landing crafts faced MG-42 machine guns, artillery and mortar fire while they came ashore.

But Biden’s defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, made sure to produce a bizarre statement three days later honoring members of the alphabet community for their service — even in the Civil War, he said.

“Throughout American history, LGBTQ+ citizens have fought to defend our rights and freedoms — from the Founding of our nation to the Civil War, from the trenches of two World Wars to Korea and Vietnam, and from Afghanistan to Iraq,” Austin said Wednesday. “They fought for our country even when our country wouldn’t fight for them.

“Even as some were forced to hide who they were … or to hang up their uniforms.”

“And today,” he said, “we reaffirm that transgender rights are human rights, and that America is safer — and better — when every qualified citizen can serve with pride and dignity.

“Now, that’s real progress.”

The defense secretary added that that “our work isn’t done until we create a safe and supportive workplace for everyone –free from discrimination, harassment, and fear. Because nobody should have to hide who they love to serve the country that they love.”

Is this even real?

Nobody is doubting that gay men have fought valiantly for this country — or any country — throughout the long history of combat.

In fact, the British man who cracked Nazi Germany’s Enigma code, Alan Turing, was exiled and cruelly imprisoned for being gay by that country after World War II.

Turing saved countless Allied lives, and he was treated horribly. But what made Turing exceptional was his mind, not who he found himself attracted to.

History was often cruel, as we all well know. Ask the few men still living who liberated Europe about the cruelty of humanity. Some of those men also liberated concentration camps.

How does Austin’s statement Wednesday serve to make the U.S. military a better, stronger, meaner and mightier fighting force? It doesn’t. In fact, Austin’s comments were strange and nonsensical in their entirety.

The man came off as a caricature of a bad left-wing comic book hero. Really? Gender-confused people won the Civil War? No, they didn’t. Men who embraced the American identity won that war, and many others.

By politicizing the military and embracing neo-Marxist identity politics, Biden, Austin and others are turning the world’s most elite fighting force into an international laughingstock. Sadly, their actions might result in a lot of people getting killed the next time the country finds itself engaged with an enemy that hasn’t spent its time crying tears about discrimination.

Our enemies are ruthless killers. This country’s international adversaries are well-trained and heavily armed, and they probably smell blood in the water at this point.

Hopefully, the Pentagon will change course quickly.

China and its vast army are hungry for conquest, and its riflemen don’t care what color of dress, which brand of tissue or which gender identity our troops and their ineffectual leaders embrace while they should be keeping their sights downrange.

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
