U.S. Special Operations Command’s new chief of diversity and inclusion investigated over social media posts

U.S. Special Operations Command’s new chief of diversity and inclusion investigated over social media posts

As this social justice drama plays out, Taiwan is reporting a large incursion of Chinese fighter planes in its airspace.

U.S. Special Operations Command recently installed a new chief of diversity and inclusion, continuing it’s long march to full woke.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson followed-up this announcement with an analysis about how the US military is prioritizing social justice over national security:

Special Operations Command is very significant in the U.S. military, and in our country. It oversees Delta Force, the SEAL teams and the rest of our most-celebrated, best-trained and most lethal war-fighters. The tweet announced that a man called Richard Torres-Estrada is now the, “Chief of Diversity & Inclusion” of America’s Special Forces.

They included his picture with the announcement. Then, at the very top of its website, the Special Operations Command included a link to its extensive new “diversity and inclusion strategic plan.” The one thing we know about that plan is it will result in the dramatic lowering of standards within our elite ranks. It probably already has. How will that make America safer? The generals never said. You couldn’t find that on the website. Instead, they explained that “all of us understand that diversity and inclusion are operational imperatives.” They didn’t say how, they just said they’re imperatives. This is the operation that Richard Torres-Estrada will be running.

Keep in mind, “Special Ops” include groups like the US Navy Seals, the Army “Green Berets”, Marine Raider battalions and Air Force Special Operations Wings. The social justice warriors now in charge of defense decisions were also inundated with rather robust opinions sharing Carlson’s views about the senselessness of this position, especially those with experience in the military.

You can just tell by looking at that smarmy face that he is a punk-ass bitch. Why does the military have a punk-ass bitch in charge of anything?

Our enemies are laughing and salivating looking at this woke implosion of our armed forces.

This is how Biden will get a LOT of people killed.

Diversity, not limited to racism, and exclusion.

He could be quite valuable to any special operations team. Sometimes Seals or Green Berets need adequate mobile cover that they can position between them and possible hostile fire.

Our new zampolit, now labeled a diversity and inclusion officer.

It is utterly amazing to me how effectively the left has indoctrinated our people into believing that anything called racism is the ultimate unforgiveable sin.

We are apparently willing to sacrifice anything to avoid being tainted with that horrific label.

    “zampolit”

    Precisely my first thought when I heard this. Then I looked at his picture and laughed. He was the last one chosen in elementary school and each team drew straws to see who had to take him.

      You can’t go by looks. I was always the last chosen as well, bit I don’t look like I drive a white panel van and offer candy to school kids.

A politicized military isn’t worth funding, especially from a nation as broke as the United States..

    The political purge of all those who do not conform to group think will be complete with a year.

Something rolling around in my mind: how many who were considering “shipping over” (re-enlisting) are bailing? Furthermore, how many tell the career counselor exactly why?

Taiwan is reporting a large incursion of Chinese fighter planes in its airspace.

Will Taiwan fight once they know they’ll get no help from Biden’s Amerika? Odds are that even if the Biden Regime had the will — it doesn’t — the Chinese Commies have significant compromising leverage on Biden.

Not to mention it’s probably our military probably could no longer stop the Chinese anyway. We have no longer have credible deterrence. Not without going nuclear. Which won’t happen.

Taiwan will go the way of the Sudetenland. And Hong Kong.

The Chinese Commies might even throw Hunter, and the Big Guy, a Taiwanese bone.

    If we went to war, where is our supply pipeline? We don’t make anything anymore.

    Taiwan is just foreign wypipo (yellow branch).

    Besides, for a job in the Biden administration, a history of Trump Hitler memes aren’t “problematic,” they’re resumé enhancements.

Doesn’t drawing an equivalence between Trump and Hitler make Torres-Estrada an ‘extremist’?

Under the current regime wouldn’t a US service member be labelled an extremist and drummed out of the military if he/she/[fill-in-the-blank] drew an equivalence between Biden and Stalin on Facebook or Twitter?

His job is to sow discontent in the ranks and destroy unit cohesion.

I’m surprised Biden chose a white man.

    “…chose a white man

    I’m not sure he did.

      Plus, he seems definitely Hispanic by name and appearance. Gotta pacify the new American “recruit” class, you know, can’t have them resenting their Democrat “saviors.”

        The Friendly Grizzly in reply to henrybowman. | March 31, 2021 at 8:51 am

        I’m a “two-fer”. Hispanic based on Spanish ancestry. Asian because of ancestry traced back to Ukraine and Georgia.

        I want my entitlenents!!1!!!1!!

Look on the bright side: the US military has given up even the pretense of winning wars. So even if Lloyd Austin gets his wet dream of using the military to war on American citizens through a “counter-insurgency” campaign, they will lose like they did in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Every “Diversity” officer and everyone who approved of the existence of their offices should be dishonorably discharged for undermining the readiness of the military.

They’re all warped, corrupt and underperforming. There is no diversity around Biden. (Harris starts giggling…)

Diversity of individuals, minority of one.

I have the utmost respect for our armed forces, particularly our Special Operations teams. I believe that they have exceptionally high IQs and are adept at tactical thinking. I also admire how Special Ops teams learn to work together without ego to reach their objectives. Even if you sent these teams through a social justice indoctrination, the teams would still emerge with cohesion. If a team were to be invited to a “struggle session” there would be polite “no comments”. The CRT training would not stick. Special Ops are a meritocracy as a matter of survival.

I saw a comment elsewhere that the fact that this individual was so poorly vetted may mean that the position was considered so irrelevant, internally, that no one bothered.

Notice how the “Diversity and Inclusion” Chief is whiter than white?

Remember Ashli Babbitt!

Jack Klompus | March 31, 2021 at 8:41 am

Smirky here is a perfect specimen of the useless and unemployable in any endeavor other than unaccountable bureaucracies. I highly doubt any actual SPECOP soldier would have a smidgen of respect for or kowtow to this tool.

Why is there even any position like “blah blah blah of diversity and inclusion” in the first place?

We don’t need that crap in the private sector, and we sure as hell don’t need it in the armed forces.

Couple of thoughts:

1. Trump didn’t order tear gas to clear the park so he could walk to the church. This narrative has been completely debunked. Lazy journalism is why these stupid things keep spreading.

2. Diversity of relative experience is a positive because it introduces more educated view points and transfers solutions. (In the military, diversity of personnel from different jobs and theatre experience, for instance) Diversity of unrelated individual characteristics doesn’t actually add anything.

3. Why is it that one political persuasion can push well known doctored images on social media, but the other can’t?? (I know… rhetorical question)

Imagine being the special ops personnel at the top of their game having to listen to this racist, beta POS flap his gums.

    My fear is that the next crop of special ops will think this is great and that their ability to function will suffer (greatly). Our military is being re-structured, right down to special ops, to embrace and embody wokeness. Our enemies are thrilled, of course, because that means they can beat us all day every day. It’s horrifying.

      At least the commissars tried to enforce loyalty to the regime. These guys are trying to teach people to hate their country. China has noticed. I am sure the Russians have, too.

      Oh, and what’s that Russian military buildup on the eastern border of Ukraine all about?

Dumb policies that alienate the half of the country that best knows how to fight. Politicize, dilute and disillusion the military’s top fighting forces. Way to F-things up.
