U.S. Military Twitter Accounts And Officials Attack Tucker Carlson For Questioning Woke Agenda

U.S. Military Twitter Accounts And Officials Attack Tucker Carlson For Questioning Woke Agenda

“What it looks like in today’s armed forces @TuckerCarlson. Get right before you get left, boomer,” the official U.S. Marine Corps Twitter account for the II MEF Information Group tweeted Friday.

If you didn’t think the whole “controversy” surrounding Tucker Carlson’s commentary earlier this week on how the Department of Defense is busy politicizing and feminizing the U.S. military as China makes their military more masculine could get any more absurd, you were wrong.

When last we left you, the DOD was furiously issuing official statements on Carlson’s comments as well as having their spokespeople do interviews on cable news outlets to condemn Carlson and assure perpetually-outraged outraged leftists that they were 100% committed to “diversity”:

But to make matters worse, blue check official U.S. military Twitter accounts and the official accounts of military leaders are actually using their platforms to launch attacks on Carlson as well.

Here are some examples:

The MEF Twitter account appears to know they were in the wrong, as evidenced by their exchanges with multiple people, including Fox Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin, who noted it was “wild” to see tweets like that coming from an official U.S. military account:

When one Twitter user urged the MEF account to focus on China and not Tucker Carlson, their response was to play the woman card:

That didn’t sit well with Daily Caller associate editor Virginia Kruta, who served in the military while pregnant herself and wrote Friday about how she agreed with Carlson’s comments:

If their focus is to “train, fight and win,” they’re doing a lousy job demonstrating that on their official account.

The irony here is that these accounts are proving Tucker Carlson’s point about the U.S. military’s priorities to a “t”:

Can you imagine how hard Chinese military leaders are laughing at the United States right now?

Something to keep in mind, too, when seeing the tweets from these official accounts is that they would not have gone up nor would they still be up had they not been authorized (or ordered) by a higher power to post them in the first place. That compounds the issue and makes their focus on Carlson even more troubling. Case in point:

A spokeswoman for the Service Women’s Action Network told the Military Times on Thursday that seeing military leaders respond so forcefully to Carlson was “validating”:

“We’ve seen senior military leaders use social media in a completely new way within the past year,” Martina Chesonis, spokeswoman for the Service Women’s Action Network, told Military Times on Thursday. “Seeing senior military leaders address Tucker Carlson’s comments on pregnancy in the military so quickly and so directly is really validating, honestly.”

Oh, it’s “validating” alright, just not in the way Ms. Chesonis thinks it is.

We are indeed screwed if senior leaders in the military are more concerned about being seen as “woke” and politically correct than strong and prepared. Might be a good time to pray that common sense and sanity prevails at some point here before it’s too late.

Women in the military are such badasses that they have to whine on Twatter about a talking head being mean to them. Maybe they and their cucked senior leadership should turn their attention to the war games that showed China winning multiple times.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Paddy M. | March 13, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I have seen disturbing things from the US military I thought I would never see. To engage in political discourse while in uniform and with official communications is simply not acceptable. This was one of the last bastions of non-partisanship within the federal government.

    I have no problem with leadership supporting their female soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen, but to do so in a way that attacks the opinion of a civilian is unprofessional, irresponsible, divisive and destructive of the institution.

    This is especially so since Carlson did not attack the service, professionalism, or dedication of women in uniform, but rather the focus and priorities of their commander and chief, who is an elected official wide open for unfettered examination and criticism by everyone NOT IN THE MILITARY.

    If leadership thought their female service members required recognition for their contribution and service, there are traditional ways to do so. It could have been a simple matter to cast a Tweet or official communication stating the importance of female service members, without mentioning Carlson.

    The Department of Defense rests upon the trust of the people of the United States. If it loses that trust, it is lost. It is the job of the elected officials and political appointees to engage in these sorts of dirty squabbles. These “leaders” should be ashamed of themselves. They do not know their place. If I were Commander in Chief, they would have been immediately and summarily relieved. That four star would be retiring as a two star. with a clear warning that service members who get involved in political discussion on any topic, especially in uniform and using official communications of the Department of Defense, will not be tolerated.

    However, the cabal in power now has no concern from keeping this sacred institution preserved from ruin. They seek to corrupt all for their own purulent and destructive interests. They are like a swarm of locusts and consume and destroy everything in the path.

    God save the USA.

It is interesting that the military responded, Tucker must have hit a nerve.

    Indeed. Toss a stone into a pigsty, and the pig that squeals is the one you hit. The overwrought responses by these perfumed princes who haven’t been able to subdue a bunch of goat humpers after 20 years of trying tends to validate Tucker’s comments.

Flak is heaviest over the target.
Don’t back down Tuck.

“Get right before you get left, boomer”? Really?

There are idiots in uniform just like there are idiots in every other walk of life. It’s just too bad that the Marine Corps gave this one a megaphone,

    George_Kaplan in reply to Bartlett. | March 13, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Couldn’t this be a chargeable offence? I mean surely that’s misuse of an official government channel, not to mention hate speech? Oh it’s likely been sanctioned by Leftists in command, but that simply furthers the rot – breaking the rules for politically approved reasons is permissible. What happens if government changes and the politically approved reasons likewise change, or is there no intent on government changing?

      the_last_l3oyscout in reply to George_Kaplan. | March 14, 2021 at 10:30 am

      This right here. This needs to be the focus. B**mer is hate speech, and the person that posted this tweet needs to be treated the same way as anyone else who uses any kind of “phobic” language in the workplace. THESE ARE THEIR RULES! When do we start the investigation into systemic ageism in our military specifically, and federal government in general?

      When I was in , yes
      Now? If it’s sanctioned by the top brass who is going to charge it?

    scooterjay in reply to Bartlett. | March 14, 2021 at 10:31 am

    ….and Trump got kicked off Twatter for being “mean”

Dear Command Senior Enlisted Leader:
I’d address you as “Chief,” but you aren’t one. You are just an E-9 with a special chevron. Can’t read? Can’t listen? Carlson never said what you and the rest of your twits are all steamed up about.

I spent the last 10 years of my service as an E-9 and thanks to a fantastic mentor who began working on me when I was an E-8, I think I finally understood the real difference between an E-9 and a Chief when I had three years or so Time In Grade as an E-9. There *IS* a difference and it is rooted in professionalism. Despite your position you have apparently not yet arrived. And by the way — get off MY tax-paid-for web services when you want to spout your ignorant, dumbass personal remarks. That is what a PERSONAL account is for.

The idea that in your position you are controlling promotion-determining documentation decisions regarding the top levels of our enlisted corps disgusts me. It is at the same level of disgust as the thought of your being addressed as “Chief.”

What the hell was your boss thinking when he hired you?

    Arminius in reply to gatorbait. | March 14, 2021 at 3:36 pm

    “…What the hell was your boss thinking when he hired you?”

    His boss was thinking, “How can I retire as a four star?”

    “10 U.S. Code § 1370 – Commissioned officers: general rule; exceptions

    (2)
    (A)In order to be eligible for voluntary retirement under any provision of this title in a grade above major or lieutenant commander, a commissioned officer of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps must have served on active duty in that grade for not less than three years, except that the Secretary of Defense may authorize the Secretary of a military department to reduce such period to a period not less than two years…”

    The current Commander, U.S. Space Command is the former Deputy Commander, as is usually but not always the case in the U.S. armed forces. The promotion from deputy commander comes with a promotion from LTGEN (or VADM if/when the Navy officers move up the chain), a three star, to GEN (or ADM) and pin the fourth star on.

    There’s no guarantee he’s going on to another command after this, and his tour as Commander of USSPACECOM is for two years. Also, if he’s ever under investigation for misconduct or is relieved (given the times we live in either can happen unless he is enthusiastically and loudly PC) he’ll retire at a lower rank in which he performed satisfactorily (and it’s the thoroughly PC SecDef who decides what that was; he could be retire as a Colonel if he doesn’t fly right). The best way for him to make sure he locks in that four star pension is to kiss @$$. You simply don’t get promoted to general/flag officer rank without being a politician. He knows which way the political wind is blowing, and whichever way it’s blowing he’s sailing with it. Give these inside-the-beltway types a shove by hinting their retirement pay depends on complying with the political fashions of their paymasters (it always does) and they turn into dancing bears. Whoever is playing the pipes calls the tune.

    Who else would this guy’s boss pick except another throne-sniffing court toadie who’ll make sure he’ll get what he’s after? Because his Senior Enlisted Advisor also wants the same thing.

If there are any of your that still don’t have your minds wrapped around what is coming in a year, re-read your history.

The military was the canary in the coal mine. There is no other institution that the left needs to corrupt to go to the Final Phase, which is their version of the Final Solution.

    Indeed. Some senior military officers like Brian Russell can’t wait to use their guns on “white supremacists”. The open talk by some military leaders of fighting a “counterinsurgency” on American soil is not just talk but a deeply cherished goal.

    The next war the American military fights in will not be in the Middle East. It will be on the streets of American towns and cities and have as its goal butchering American citizens who won’t bow the knee to our Communist overlords in Washington.

      George_Kaplan in reply to Recovering Lutheran. | March 13, 2021 at 10:12 pm

      How can Leftists in the military fight a counterinsurgency when the only insurgency is Antifa and the BLM who the Left aid and abet? Thus military intervention against ‘White Supremacists’ i.e. ordinary American conservatives would be the actual insurgency, gunowners and National Guard units fighting back against federal overreach the counterinsurgency.

    Many of these senior officers are trying to get a competitive edge for their next promotion board. They know that the Biden administration will advance the careers of leftists. The senior ranks of the military are surprisingly political and corrupt. See the “Fat Leonard Scandal” for one such example. The US military will likely get its comeuppance the next time such unserious leaders face a competent military adversary.

George_Kaplan | March 13, 2021 at 10:07 pm

Yet more evidence that freedom loving Americans probably need to start looking to local militias. Discussions of such things however risk accusations of fomenting insurrection and Cancel Culture targeting.

When the US military is more concerned with political correctness – of affirming women’s ability to fight while pregnant rather than America’s ability to win a war against China, they cease being a credible institution. Oh elements will still be functional, but the ability to deploy SEALs or F-22s against New Zealand or Madagascar (yes I’m just throwing out names) is not the same as fighting a war against a peer power.

Worse still, in being more concerned about political correctness than military competency they suggest a high degree of willingness to obey to unconstitutional orders so long as they’re from a politically acceptable source. Fort Pelosi might be just the beginning.

The military establishment is attacking Carlson because it knows exactly what it is dong, destroying the US military from within. Whether they are doing so out of a sense of ideology or simply for their own short term gain, they know exactly what they are doing. But, they still share the unit identity which was instilled in the members of the military. Call it the “Band of Brothers” identity, They wish to be seen as members in good standing in that band, whether they are or not.

To destroy the US Military, several things are occurring. The first is the fact that our military is using sub-par equipment. The equipment is not being properly maintained. Unit combat readiness is at an all time low. Moral is at an all time low. Training is at an all time low. Unit integrity is being destroyed, because the members of the unit are being forced to assume some strange alternate racial and sexual identity. And, now the leadership wants to purge the military of people who do not actively ascribe to the radical ideology held the current civilian leadership.

But, the military leaders do not want anyone to anyone to know that they are going along with the destruction of our military.

facebookisfacist | March 13, 2021 at 11:16 pm

“They will dominate ANY future battlefield we’re called to fight on.”

Laughable!! 16 year old boys DESTROYED the US women’s champion Soccer team. Imagine what the Taliban or Russian regulars would do to them. Women should not be in combat. Any one who says otherwise is not about winning or being the best.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to facebookisfacist. | March 14, 2021 at 12:05 am

    But, then, if we lose, we can just say, “So, what. You beat a bunch of girls! What did that prove? Huh?”

    Hat tip: SNL, back when it was funny.

WHY THE HELL ARE MILITARY OFFICERS/NON-COMMs DISSING US CITIZENS AND THEIR LAWFULLY EXPRESSED OPINIONS?

I think that Stalker should be removed to the brig, busted and court-martialed for overstepping a HUGE wall of separation between his responsibilities towards obeying the constitution (which allows for first amendment protected speech) versus his responsibilities towards following the strict control of the military by the civilian government as required by that SAME constitution he promised via oath to serve.

He used his position to advocate a standing on issues which are not in the court of his responsibilities vis-a-vis using military involvement in US domestic politics. He should either resign or be court-martialed and serve time for his violation of strict policies (which I know since two of my grandsons are now serving military officers and which I knew as a civilian contractor to the DoD and covered me by direct contract) against military interference in US domestic policies. He is entitled to his opinions—but NOT to abuse the uniform or his position to whine like a little prison **tch because his leftist sensitivities have been stepped on. Suck it up, soldier! You made a pledge—and now you’re breaking it.

    amwick in reply to drsamherman. | March 14, 2021 at 7:45 am

    You made a pledge—and now you’re breaking it.

    The military, the government… as in congress critters,, they all take an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution.

    That oath isn’t worth a damn any more.

      Taking an oath based on forcing you to testify before God is meaningless to those who don’t believe in God. It’s just an empty ritual allows the corrupt to testify under oath in closed, private sessions while lying outright to the same people on the floor of Congress.

Our military is as woke as anywhere else these days. Creepy gender-obsessed people with lots of dangerous toys wasting their time tweeting about their wokeness.

China may not need a war to defeat us. They have apparently just walked in, bought off all of our politicians and business people and taken us over. We’ve been sold out and are now being “re-educated” (bullied) even by our own family members and “friends”.

This country just keeps getting creepier and creepier. We need to stand our ground and stop being bullied around by the useful fools. It’s long past time for the tough love required to save our families, neighborhoods. We cannot win by always retreating. How easy was it to get us to stop complaining about the stolen elections e.g.? How many of our “conservative” warriors relented to referring to the trans sickos as “she”?

We need to get our act together, regroup around our shared American values and FIGHT! Stand your ground! For God’s sake, even Bill Maher is beginning to sound more belligerent than us:

https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2021/03/13/bill-maher-while-chinas-dominating-the-world-america-is-having-a-never-ending-woke-competition/

Let’s stop reacting and start acting! Take the initiative!

As they say in the military, if you’re taking flak, you’re over the target!

There are many of us out here, and I speak for no one but myself, who were soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, or coasties before many of today’s military filled their first diapers.

We’ve seen the standards lowered in the name of diversity.

We’ve seen the focus change from defeating our nations enemies to not hurting their feelings.

We’ve seen combat leaders purged from the ranks because they didn’t have their minds right or didn’t support the proper political party.

We see American troops occupying the nation’s capitol, ostensibly defending it against American citizens attempting to petition the government for a redress of their grievances instead of defending our nation’s borders against foreign encroachment.

And now we see official DoD social media accounts attacking a journalist for exercising his rights as protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution instead of defending his right to express his opinion.

When I retired from the Army in 1999 I believed the defense of the Constitution was in good hands. I’m not so sure anymore and that saddens me.

So what seems to be the take away is that Carlson isn’t to be taken seriously nor are his observations valid due to lack of:
1. Military service
2. Service in a combat zone
3. Actual combat experience

Ok. I check all those boxes. Further I have had female service members as both subordinates, peers and superiors. Not to mention my wife who retired as a SGM.

I have plenty of relevant experience based upon the ‘criteria’ raised as the new standard from DoD for those ‘allowed’ to comment.

BLUF – these attacks on Carlson didn’t refute his arguments. They enhanced them. Your Public Affairs/PIO is incompetent and unprofessional.

The SR leaders who publicly responded to Carlson should be reprimanded and relieved of duty. They demonstrated a clear and unequivocal misunderstanding of their role and authority manifesting in an inability to subordinate their views and actions to the DoD.

Simply because one is a SR Enlisted or a Flag/ General officer doesn’t make it your role to substitute your personal or professional views for that of the DoD. The SEC DEF sets the policy, if he had wished he would have instructed a DoD spokesman to respond. Even then, it isn’t your role to ‘pile on’ or engage in a Twitter spat with a civilian talk show host.

Focus on your mission and your troops. Stay away from Twitter. Maybe spend some effort and energy on substandard housing? How about tough and realistic training scenarios to keep some of our kids alive on the next battlefield?

    guyjones in reply to CommoChief. | March 14, 2021 at 1:49 pm

    Not to mention that civilian control of the military is a bedrock principle in democratic governments. To state that civilians don’t possess the right to criticize the military isn’t just a stupid talking point; it goes against the principle that civilians control the military; not the other way around, as in any despotic regime.

Carlson’s concerns don’t relate to women serving in the military; they relate to DoD’s increasing politicization and promotion of the Dhimmi-crat political agenda.

The ridiculously childish, vindictive and partisan attacks on Carlson by high-ranking military officers, prove Carlson’s concerns to be legitimate and on-point.

    Arminius in reply to guyjones. | March 14, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    It is a gross oversimplification to say Carlson’s concerns “don’t relate to women serving in the military.” They certainly do. He’s pointing out that it’s insane to send pregnant women into combat. More to the point, it’s part of a wider problem. The left is committed to the ideological position that biology doesn’t exist or at least has minimal influence on human beings and how or who they turn out to be. That’s what they have to do to impose to impose the transgender agenda on the armed forces, declare it a success, then impose it on society at large. Like they really had to twist arms, given all the willing promotion-hungry accomplices they have ready to hand. The U.S. armed forces is so committed to that ideological tenet that they will send pregnant women into a meat grinder no matter who or how many that policy ends up killing.

    And then since dissent is sedition, they’ll cover it up and claim everything is going swimmingly. They can always doctor the reports. See the legacy of Stalin and Trofim Lysenko for the mass death that followed the last time a dictatorial state declared that biology doesn’t matter. After all, if everything is just a social construct, then with enough concentrated power they can construct people into what the current American left’s vision of the old communist version of the New Soviet Man.

    https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2019/09/24/slides-showing-high-failure-rates-on-new-fitness-test-are-not-official-cimt-documents-officials-say/

    “Slides showing high failure rates on new fitness test are not official CIMT documents, officials say”

    I’ve heard that before; “Such-and-such wasn’t in the final, official report.” Of course not. Anything that counters the official narrative will be scrubbed to meet the needs of the ideology.

    Recall when Obama wanted to drop “don’t ask, don’t tell.” They rigged a DoD-wide survey and found wide support for gays serving openly in the armed forces. Of course; service members were told their password-protected survey responses were anonymous. But since they had to use their real names in their usernames, they were assigned passwords, and they only had limited time to take the survey so they kept getting reminders toward the end of the survey period in their personal emails that they hadn’t taken the survey yet, they knew their survey responses weren’t anonymous and they also knew from their politically correct equal opportunity training sessions what the approved responses were and what responses would hurt or kill their careers.

    More to the point former NATO Commander MGEN John Sheehan (USMC-Ret) testified before Congress that one of the factors that contributed to the Dutch army collapse at Srebrenica was the fact that gay soldiers served openly (and more importantly formed romantic relationships within their units that led to suspicions of favoritism) sapped morale. According to his testimony, he got his information from the chief of staff of the Dutch army.

    The official response from Dutch officials was immediate, hysterical, and exactly along the lines of the U.S. DoD reaction to Tucker Carlson’s criticisms. And it was just as non-responsive. Most tellingly, the Dutch officials pointed out that there was no mention of any harmful effects of gays serving in their army as a contributing factor in their final, official report.

    Here’s the link to the official army report on the 2009 Fort Hood terrorist attack.

    http://usarmy.vo.llnwd.net/e1/rv5_downloads/misc/FtHoodAIRTwebversion.pdf

    Note it doesn’t work. Apparently the Bolshevik airbrushing of history continues apace. The only official army report I can find related to any “incident” at Fort Hood concerns sexual harassment.

    So you’ll have to take my word for what isn’t in that final, official report.

    1. Any mention of former Army psychiatrist Malik Nidal Hasan, who committed the atrocity.

    2. Any mention of Islam, the ideology that inspired Hasan.

    3. Any mention of Anwar Al-Awlaki, the American-Yemeni Muslim preacher who inspired Hasan, who also advised some of the 9/11 hijackers, and who Obama later ordered killed in a drone strike in Yemen despite the fact he was a birthright citizen (we need to cut that s*** out).

    4. Any mention of the fact that it was a terrorist attack (the Army later awarded the soldiers killed or wounded various awards (posthumously, obviously, in 13 cases) for their actions and injuries that day). Instead, the PC report called the mass murder a “tragedy.”

    Of course, the Obama administration was ideologically committed to the tenet that Muslims are victims of our “racist” society, never perpetrators. The report reflected that ideological commitment. The Obama admin made that commitment official in 2011 in coordination with over 50 Muslim “civil rights” groups (posing as civil rights organizations was simply a fig leaf to hide the fact that they were instead all Muslim Brotherhood [the original Islamic terrorist organization] and the model and intellectual father of all that have followed) front groups. They agreed to scrub all federal training materials for intelligence, national security, and law enforcement personnel of any mention of Muslims and Islam. And they fired or cancelled contracts with all of their former training instructors who the MB and their front groups deemed Islamophobes. And instead hired trainers vetted by the various MB front groups. This is akin to agreeing to hire Gestapo and Kempeitai secret police agents as national security advisers to the President during WWII; to hiring KGB agents for the same positions during the Cold War.

    As one acquaintance form my former profession told me, under Bush these groups demanded and received a place at the table. Under Obama they demanded and got control of the table. And the power to approve or veto anybody elses claim to a seat at the table, and exclusive control over the seating arrangements and the menu.

    Is there any wonder the official Fort Hood shooting report contained no specific mention of anything related to the actual shooting.

    Whenever someone gives the evasive response to a criticism/accusation by stating, “There was nothing mentioned about that in the final report” I know I can conclude; “Of course not.” The truth is the new hate speech, and we have to scrub any of that from the official narrative.

The only time the Ds support drilling is when they hit rock bottom.
