Liberals saw fit to choose as Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces a left-wing community organizer whose only qualifications were his politically correct black skin and Muslim name. Let’s see how it is working out from the point of view of those he commands:
A stunning number of retired U.S. military leaders were not surprised when Barack Obama announced that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel would be stepping down from his Obama cabinet last week. The announcement confirmed their expectations that the president’s distrust of the military has caused him to go to the “extreme levels of micromanaging from the White House,” said one Army general on Saturday, now retired in Texas, who wishes to remain anonymous.
“Obama has shown his stripes and is dangerously suspicious of the Pentagon,” revealed the general, who keeps close ties with current and former military leaders nationally. “Most of my colleagues are just hoping all the damage being planned is not completed before his time runs out on his term.”
“It’s not just the army,” noted the general. “All branches are worried because Obama, when he finally makes up his mind about something, gets his advice from Gen. (Martin) Dempsey (Joints Chiefs of Staff Chairman), Susan Rice, John Kerry and Denis McDonough.”
John Kerry infamously demonstrated his regard for the military when during an anti-war protest he contemptuously threw over the US Capitol fence the medals he had gamed the system for during his extremely short service in Vietnam.
When asked what concerns generals and him the most right now, the general quickly replied “how Obama is turning the military into his own personal laboratory for social engineering.”
This social engineering does not end with Obama’s aggressive promotion of homosexuality in the military. Another prominent aspect is the promotion of Islam and corresponding suppression of Christianity.
“Unhappy, was not a hard enough word to express our feelings when we found out that the Obama Administration began scrubbing all law enforcement, intelligence and military teachings on Islam,” the general said. “Under the Obama administration, any presentations going to the military and to law enforcement have to be pre-approved by a special Department of Justice panel.”
“Political Correctness is killing us: How can we properly identify the enemy, analyze his weaknesses, and defeat him, if we are NEVER permitted to examine him from the most basic doctrinal level?” stated a report by Army Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, from the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Va. Soon the Obama machine went to work to get Dooley fired and the information scrubbed. …
While many in the military are puzzled by Obama’s goals and approach to the conflicts in the Middle East, the White House did accomplish one of the president’s key goals for our military in September. Quietly, it was announced that our soldiers can now wear Muslim type turbans, scarfs, or have beards, to display their religious beliefs while in uniform.
Obama’s policies seem aimed at eliminating Christianity from the military. Soldiers had to remove the cross they erected from their chapel at Camp Marmal in northern Afghanistan. Camp Pendleton came under fire for a 13-foot cross raised on a hill to honor fallen Marines. Obama administration Pentagon appointees met with Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith. Weinstein, who leads the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said Christians sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason.”
Recently two Baptist chaplains, Maj. Steven Firtko, Army (Ret.) and Lt. Cmdr. Dan Klender, Navy were forced out of a Veterans Affairs chaplain training program after they refused orders to stop quoting the Bible and to stop praying in the name of Jesus.
Obviously Christians in the US military vastly outnumber Muslims. But Obama has been working to change that.
Electing Obama was not merely an act of treason against the United States, but against the entire Western World in favor of its ancient Islamic enemy.
In the leadership void Obama has created, Russia has positioned itself as the defender of the Christian faith — and by extension, European Civilization. As Obama methodically reduces the size and strength of the military, Putin has been conspicuously flexing his muscles.
For centuries the West has been led by America and Britain, two countries with firm commitments to decency and liberty. The future course may be charted by Russia, which has been steeping in tyranny for centuries. But even Russian domination is preferable to withering away and dying of self-hatred, which is the path liberals have set us on.
