Navy Drag Queen Recruiters – Definitive Evidence that the Military has Lost Its Way
Navy using drag queens to improve recruitment numbers – a strategy doomed to fail
Ever since Joe Biden took office, the U.S. military has been suffering from a severe lack of mission focus and horrible recruiting numbers. And it has now hit a new low by employing drag queens who are active duty military service members as recruiters. Even for a Biden Administration that seems to be looking for ways to eviscerate the military on a daily basis, this takes the cake.
We have previously reported on the lack of mission focus by the DOD since Joe Biden took office:
- Defense Department has “Drastically Shifted Off Course”
- Priorities: Defense Dept. Holds Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion “Summit” As Military Fentanyl Overdoses Surge
- Pentagon Burdens Warfighting Commanders with New Transgender Policies for Military Personnel
- Joint Chiefs Chairman Disconnected from Reality Regarding China
- US Marines Go All-In On Diversity-Equity-Inclusion Training
- Defense Department DEI Chief Made Disparaging Remarks About White People on Twitter
- Nearly 70 Percent of Military Personnel Have Witnessed “Growing Politicization” of Armed Forces, New Poll Reveals
This lack of mission focus has shown up in the DOD’s abysmal recruiting and retention numbers:
- Military Recruitment Crisis Underway as Biden Admin Continues Emphasis on Wokeness, Vaccine Mandates
- Woke Military Struggling to Reach Recruitment Goals
We went into detail on these problems when, in December, we held a live seminar called Saving the Military Service Academies from Wokeness with Matthew Lohmeier, a former Space Force Lieutenant Colonel who was fired, forced to retire, and and subjected to an Inspector General investigation within the Pentagon after publishing his bestselling book, Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military, which tears the lid off the military’s obsession with racist and radical “woke” ideologies.
The video from the event is here:
You would think from this introduction that the DOD would examine its policies and procedures, re-focus all of its forces on mission attainment, improving lethality, and troop morale, and thereby fix its dismal recruitment problem.
And you would be wrong.
In fact, the DOD has decided to double down on its woke, DEI/CRT-centric policies, which, oh by the way, require female troops to shower with transgender men who still have all of their male genitalia intact, as we reported here.
How is the DOD doubling down on its woke policy choices, you ask? Well, as mentioned, by employing drag queens as recruiters who are active duty military service members, as Fox News recently reported: US Navy platformed ‘drag queen influencer’ to attract youth to the military in hiring crisis:
The U.S. Navy has revealed that it approached a “drag queen influencer” to help persuade new recruits to join the military.
Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, who goes by the stage name “Harpy Daniels,” announced back in November 2022 that he was the Navy’s “Digital Ambassador.”…
The Digital Ambassador initiative that Kelley participated in ran from October 2022 to March 2023 and was “designed to explore the digital environment to reach a wide range of potential candidates,” a Navy spokesperson told Fox News Digital. The reason, the spokesperson added, was that the Navy is navigating “the most challenging recruiting environment it has faced since the start of the all-volunteer force.”

As you can see from the above Tweets, backlash was immediate and scathing, including from members of Congress: “Biden has turned our military into a woke social experiment,” [Senator Marco] Rubio said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “It is a stupid way to go about protecting our nation. We need to spend more time thinking about how to counter threats like China, Russia, and North Korea and less time thinking about pronouns.”
The memes are endless, and reflect a general feeling of major discontent with how the military is being led these days.
Editorial comment: As many of you know from reading my prior posts, I try to let the facts of each post speak for themselves. But I must speak up here.
First, what is it with these drag queens? I mean, there have probably been effeminate men around for as long as there have been men, and if you’re a man who wants to wear a dress around, I’m okay with that, as long as you don’t bug me. But why do all the transgender dudes want to dress up like cheap, skanky hookers like you’ll find on the corner of every red light district in every city on earth? I don’t get it. Why not dress up like Grace Kelly, Kate Middleton, or Audrey Hepburn? You know, someone beautiful, alluring, mysterious? No, they all go for the cheap corner, dime-store slut look. I don’t get it. But I repeat myself. It’s disgusting.
Second, this has made me think about all of the absolute demi-gods of the Navy who served this country so well through the centuries. Men like John Paul Jones, naval hero of the Revolutionary War, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, who with consummate skill “commanded all land and sea forces in the central Pacific area” in World War II, Admiral Bull Halsey, “leading exponent of warfare using carrier-based aircraft [who] became known for his daring tactics” in World War II, even my own personal hero, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, who created the Navy’s nuclear propulsion program in the face of massive opposition, which turned submarines from niche platforms that could damage an enemy’s shipping and transport capability into front-like premier combat platforms that rule the seas (okay maybe I’m a little biased). The point is, these men used to be living and breathing people who made the Navy the revered (and feared) institution it is today. And now we have drag queens? How can that be possible? How the mighty have fallen…

The Chinese are laughing at us…
Everyone is laughing at us.
And, the Iranians, the Taliban, Fatah, etc.
Xi Jinping, Vlad Putin, Kim Jong Un, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Bashar al-Assad, Recep Tayyip Erdogan . . .
And I wouldn’t hesitate to say every Western leader is laughing and shaking their heads in disbelief that this is what they are most concerned about.
• Not that under the Biden regime the United States is stumbling towards a two front war with both Russia and Communist China.
• Not the fact that recruitment has tanked. How did dishonorably discharging all those military personnel that refused the mRNA serum work out for yah. Just wait for the
DraftSelective Service law to be activated.
• Not the fact that the U.S. military is now fatally low on ammunition and it will take several years to replenish the depleted stockpiles. Only existing black powder manufacturing facility go BOOM! and still hasn’t come back on line yet.
• Not the fact that there is no competent military leadership whatsoever right up to the Commander in Chief of U.S. military forces. They’ve all been replaced by incompetent yes men to further the Biden regime’s lunatic military policies.
And on and on.
The TL;DR version – The United States military is well and truly screwed. And the dictators of the world know it. And will be taking advantage of that fact at every opportunity.
And it’s only gonna get worse.
The Chinese are laughing at us…
They are laughing all the way to the bank because all that make up, all those wigs and dresses and high heels are made in China.
And the duct tape. Don’t forget the duct tape.
The Chinese are gay with glee, and wish that Americans live in the most interesting of times.
Maybe Vladimir Putin can focus on trying to capture Washington instead of Kyiv?
I mean, how many troops would it take with loudspeakers blaring out incorrect pronouns T our troops to make them surrender?
It would be a lot less messy than his whole Ukraine fiasco.
They wouldn’t need PsyOps. All they would have to do is cut off the supply of Ritalin, serve food that was not gluten-free, cut off the aupppy of inhalers, and yes, scream triggering pronouns at them.
They like their (men who pretend to be) women a little on the trashy side.
Yesterday, I had a young man ask me if he should try to join the marines (he received an unsolicited letter). I asked him if he was willing to either die or kill somebody for our nation and our ideals. He didn’t seem keen on that.
It is no wonder enlistment is down. Look at the big picture. We have an administration that will not defend our borders from invasion or our citizens or businesses from crime; and one that cuts and runs from a 20-year war that many Americans died in that required limited resources to maintain an important status quo. “The philosophy that led to this bleak outcome [in San Francisco, where Twitter is headquartered] will be the end of civilization if extended to the world,” Musk said. Is that a country worth dying for?
Put him on a fairy boat.
This is all by design. Look at the Commander in Chief, look at the entire executive branch. “They” have had him by the short an curlies for years, and kept it all hidden. Destroying the military is just another way of destroying this nation. It’s all over but the shoutin’.
TY James.. this has got to be especially painful for you..
I joined the Navy shortly after the Vietnam War and the draft ended. In many ways it wasn’t a great time to be in the new all-volunteer military but damn. At least we didn’t have crap like this to deal with.
I’m trying to imagine being the division Leading Petty Officer with drag queens in my division…ugh I just can’t get there. “Sorry Smith but you’re going to have to take the midwatch; Jones has a drag festival to attend.” Shudder.
Shame on the Navy top brass for not going into open revolt against this trash. A career and advancement at any price huh? Shame on the Joint Chiefs, SecDef and everyone down the line.
So many sick perverts
Some random thoughts:
1. In the “real” military, we would refer to these types of misfits as “Pier Queers.” Not to be confused with peer queers.
2. This administration has made recruitment in the Armed Forces worse than Vietnam or Jimmy Carter could have ever done.
3. We still have a traitor as our Chairman of the Joint Chief’s of Staff who publicly stated that if our former president planned on any action against China, Milley would inform his Chinese counterpart of those plans.
4. The fact that every Admiral and General in uniform still collects a paycheck and has not resigned or retired in protest to this nonsense tells me that the rot is so ingrained in the Armed Forces throughout the flag ranks that even if we get a Republican president, those senior officers will still have an impact on the future of the Armed Forces.
5. #4 applies to every senior NCO.
6. I would not survive in today’s military. Not too long ago, public displays of affection, flaunting one’s sexuality, fornication in the barracks, adultery, fraternization, and a host of other related actions by today’s drag queens was forbidden. I am not saying that these things never happened. I am saying that when identified, they were dealt with.
7. Maybe the Armed Forces should give free Bud Lite as a recruitment incentive.
8. The choice of being binary or non-binary is still a binary choice.
9. When I was younger, my mother would ask me if my friends all jumped off a cliff, would I follow them? Today, the leader of all those jumping off the cliff is called an “influencer.”
I think Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley is exactly the kind of marketing genius Bud Light is looking for.
Nah. Too busy gobblin the knobbin. HeShe isn’t even a good influencer, let alone a marketing genius.
Hizzer only goal is to be recognized and get lots of upvotes and attention. Keeping with his sexuality, he is truly an attention whore.
I’m old enough to remember Lyin’ Lloyd Austin saying this; “Listen, drag shows and are not something that the Department of Defense supports or funds.” No of course not Lloyd instead you appoint AD Enlisted as “digital ambassadors” that like to pretend they’re slutty women in order to what….recruit more?
Just for arguments sake lets stipulate that the 10% number for rainbow folks is accurate. How many of these folks want to join the Navy? How many are eligible; not overweight, no criminal record, no drug use, no mental health diagnosis? What is the point in creating a recruitment pitch to such an infinitesimal small number?
The answer is that’s not the point. The true point is to demonstrate power. The institutions are currently under the woke spell of activists and this, just like the Bud Light fiasco, drag story hour for kids and stocking school libraries with what up until ten minutes ago was considered pornography at worst and wildly inappropriate at best is to remind us of that and further condition the gullible.
Same for all the hype and self promotion by the Biden WH staff of ‘firsts’. Same for govt agencies and many private companies. It’s no more than a bullying flex on the rest of us to show they currently hold the whip hand of political power and great influence on the culture. What will they do when the pendulum shifts the other direction? We are already seeing it with ‘occupations’ and ‘protests’ at State capitals in States where common sense still prevails. This shit seems to be peaking IMO at least outside the blue enclaves.
By definition, anybody who is ‘trans’ has a mental illness and should be ineligible for service. Full stop.
Even if one insists that trans is not a mental illness, someone who has “transitioned” is in need of constant medical care. That’s not practical for a military service.
I don’t disagree about the folks caught up in ‘trans’ ideology who convince themselves that mutilation will solve their problems. Just the ongoing medical issues make them poor candidates for recruitment.
What about drag queens? They know they ain’t women but get a dopamine hit and probably fulfill some sort of kink fetish via putting on women’s clothing and performing? They ain’t exactly as straightforwardly crazy/delusional as those who want mutilation but they absolutely do deviate from the norm. If some drag queen does their job by day and openly moonlights as a drag queen one can make the case that they ain’t a security risk b/c the behavior is open not hidden and therefore can’t be used as blackmail to control them.
This is why the Navy and our armed services are in the worst war fighting shape since pre Pearl Harbor
That would be Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, a hymen is something else altogether
Thanks – fixed
“the Navy is navigating “the most challenging recruiting environment it has faced since the start of the all-volunteer force.”
You fired trained, qualified seamen just for not taking the jab, you fucking idiots.
As I wrote on another site, I look at TV ads the way I look at fish bait, what you use as bait determines what kind of fish you get. Imagine what kind of fish the Navy is going to get with this ad! I think most of us look at a drag queen as someone who has a mental problem and although probably not dangerous, they would not be the first choice for an intense, high-pressure job.
They’ll get some humdingers.

“Police looking for man who defecated on pride flag outside New York City restaurant
“New York City police are searching for a hate crime suspect after surveillance video captured a man defecating on a LGBTQ pride flag outside of a Manhattan restaurant earlier this month.
“Video shared with the New York Post showed the suspect relieving himself on a flag he placed on the ground in the outdoor patio area of Buceo 95’s on April 15. The man then drew a smiley face in the pile of waste, according to the Post, and used a second pride flag to wipe himself….”

Stilletto heels make less ground contact and make it harder to step on an IED. Too bad.
As I was reading through your list of Naval titans who contributed so much to the Navy and thereby the world, I was hoping to see Rickover. So glad he made your list. He was so awesome it is hard to exaggerate. I would give anything to have a mentor like him.
You should have been at my nuke interview with Rickover – holy crap…
Is a kick in the head the US Military has been probably finally destroyed after over 200 years
This is true.
Seems like time to reinstate the Royal Navy tracdition of “rum, sodomy, and the lash”, to — er — stimulate recruitment.
Rum, sodomy and – and the lash (voluntarily). Ugh!!!
It’s difficult to imagine too many Drag Queens are willing to join the military. It’s tough running in the trenches in high heels.
If you ask me, the government is trying to DECREASE military recruiting numbers. Would you, a SANE, NORMAL male/female, be incentivized to join the military with this degeneracy being pushed down your throat–or up other orifices?
