US Marine Corps now offering $144,000 salary for ‘diversity, equity and inclusion’ adviser.
Last week, the US Marine Corps marked its 246th birthday.
And while there are many reasons to celebrate this milestone, last we also saw a group Iran-backed of Houthi rebels stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital San’a.
The U.S. diplomatic mission in San’a has been suspended since 2015, when Houthi rebels took control of the city. Since then, U.S. Embassy personnel have worked on Yemeni affairs from Saudi Arabia, which backs the government ousted by the insurgents.
Houthi rebels stormed the embassy compound in San’a on Wednesday and took U.S.-employed security personnel hostage. Most of the personnel have been freed, according to a State Department spokesman, who said the U.S. was making unceasing diplomatic efforts to release the rest.
Also during the week, Chinese military forces held exercises near Taiwan in response to a visit by a US congressional delegation to the island.
The drills in the area of the Taiwan Strait are a “necessary measure to safeguard national sovereignty,” China’s Defence Ministry said in an announcement on Tuesday that gave no details on the timing, participants and location of the exercises.
It said the “joint war preparedness patrol” by the Eastern Theatre Command was prompted by the “seriously incorrect words and actions of relevant countries over the issue of Taiwan” and the actions of those advocating the self-governing island’s independence.
Given these developments, sensible planners would consider making military preparedness, defense preparation, and troop recruitment and training top priorities.
Instead, the Biden administration’s priorities have nothing to do with actual military readiness. It intends to force march the US Marines toward diversity, equity and inclusion as the solution to make the Marine’s “reflect America“.
The Marine Corps, the smallest U.S. military force, has plans for a big overhaul designed to address its lack of diversity and problem with retaining troops.
The goal that’s driving what amounts to a cultural shift within the service, is for the Marines “to reflect America, to reflect the society we come from,” Gen. David Berger, commandant of the Marine Corps, said in an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition.
It’s not a matter of being politically correct or “woke,” he said.
The core of America’s strength lies in its diversity, Berger said, adding that the same is true for the military.
How to achieve this bit of nonsense? Hire a bureaucrat loyal to the Democratic Party, of course.
A job listing with the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) seeking a “diversity, equity and inclusion” adviser with a starting salary of $144,128 is gaining attention on social media.
The USMC is hiring the adviser to ensure that all “internal and external communications reflect diversity, equity, and inclusion,” or DEI, and to develop tools that “enable shifting the USMC cultural paradigm for diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
The actual job description is filled with bureaucratic babble. Some of the items on the wish list:
- Recalibrating our enlisted personnel model to better balance recruiting and retention, in order to mature the force;
- Retooling how enlisted Marines are assigned to military occupational specialties (MOS) to align talents and potential with the needs of the Marine Corps;
- Incorporating a talent marketplace to give individual Marines a say in the trajectory of their careers and commanders a voice in who join their staffs;
- Adopting modern digital tools, analytics, and processes to improve the efficiency of the talent management system
It strikes me that the tools they are going to use to retool the Marines will mean promoting those who agree with the progressive ideology and hindering those that don’t.
Additionally, the US military, especially the Marines, have been on the forefront of rewarding and celebrating achievement based on merit for quite some time. Many in social media agree.
The Corps isn't racist when you first join up you're all maggots regardless of race, religion or creed. Once you complete basic you are all United States Marines. Members of a brotherhood. No diversity program needed, it's already in place.

You have to be kidding. The MArines do not need a "WOKE" adviser less one making $144K a year. No government employee should make over $100K that is not an elected official. https://t.co/5ouewenw1L #FoxNews

The reason why the US Marines were so unsuccessful at Tripoli, Chapultepec, Belleau Wood, and Iwo Jima was because of their lack of diversity.
Good thing we’re fixing that now. https://t.co/IAjb2dQCVM

The Diversity Commissar will probably be responsible for going through all weapons and deciding…like roads…which weapons are racist or not
