Bauer: In today's military, 'diversity' gets you promoted … not 'defend'

A conservative activist finds it "ridiculous" that Joe Biden's Pentagon apparently is concerned more with diversity, equity, and inclusion than in confronting and defeating hostile enemies.


A new Quinnipiac Poll shows that only 35% of Americans – approximately one-third – approve of President Biden's job performance in office, while 55% disapprove. The same poll shows almost identical numbers (35% to 54%) regarding Biden's overall handling of foreign policy – and the Russia-Ukraine crisis (34% to 54%).

But instead of taking steps to confront Russia and China and Iran, the Pentagon appears to be more focused on promoting its leftist social agenda, declaring that "diversity, equity, and inclusion are necessities in the U.S. military."

During an appearance this week on American Family Radio, Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families made it clear that the U.S. military has one purpose.

"And that is when we unfortunately are in a war, it is to win our wars," Bauer emphasized. "That is the purpose of the United States military. It is not to please the faculties of America's left-wing universities or the editorial boards of The New York Times and CNN. It is to win our wars."

Bauer says this left-wing drift in the U.S. military began under the Obama administration, but Donald Trump fought against it when he was president. Sadly, says Bauer, it is back in full force under Biden.

"Officers are being told if you want to rise up in the ranks and someday be a general or a colonel or whatever, We need you to be able to show us that you had success not in warfighting, but in these goals: diversity, inclusion, equity? This is ridiculous."

In his End of Day report on Thursday, Bauer predicts "dark days" ahead under a Biden-led Pentagon that's more focused on a social agenda than on defending America:

"Under a strong America First president like Donald Trump, the dictators of the world were afraid to act against America's interests. Under our current aging and weak president, the world's dictators believe they have at least three more years to do whatever they want. Dark days are ahead."
