“We do have women serving in the military.”
This is hilarious. Thanks for catching this, Washington Free Beacon:
Smith, the ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee, reprimanded Rep. Jim Banks (R., Ind.) for questioning why the U.S. military has wasted more than six million “man-hours” on training soldiers with various Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs, which critics such as Banks say promote woke cultural ideologies.
“That would be ‘person-hours,’ not necessarily ‘man-hours,'” Smith said in response to Banks’s comment, eliciting laughter from some in attendance at the committee hearing. “We do have women serving in the military.”
Banks later mocked Smith on Twitter, suggesting that the Democrat is lost within his party’s obsession with woke identity politics.
“At the NDAA markup, I asked how different the Afghanistan withdrawal could have gone if we didn’t waste nearly six million man-hours on DEI training,” Banks wrote. “The lead Democrat’s response? I should have said ‘person-hours.’ You can’t make this up!”
JUST NOW: At the NDAA markup, I asked how different the Afghanistan withdrawal could have gone if we didn’t waste nearly 6 million manhours on DEI training.
The lead Democrats’ response?
I should have said “personhours.”
You can’t make this up!
