Hopefully we won’t be needing our special forces for long, because it won’t take liberals long to use Affirmative Action to destroy them:
Elite units in the military are by and large both white and male. Pentagon officials, however, are hoping for a major demographic shift, citing the benefits of diversity…
The benefits of diversity, which is an antonym for indispensable cohesion, are either political or fictional.
Data provided by each individual service to USA Today illustrates current disparities, which are most prominent in units like the Navy SEALs and the Army’s Green Berets. For instance, in the Army, blacks comprised 17 percent of the force in 2013, a figure slightly higher than their representation in the overall population. As the ranks start climbing, the numbers shift. Blacks amount to only 9.4 percent of officers in the military.
Since we are not allowed to mention the word “aptitude,” the only possible explanation is imaginary racism, which can only be fixed by inflicting real racism against more qualified whites.
In the Navy SEALs, just 2 percent are black, while Native Americans make up about 4 percent, or 99 SEALs.
Only 5.6 percent of enlisted Green Berets are black. But in the Air Force, among para-rescuers, the number drops even further down to .6 percent.
The Pentagon considers this to be a problem.
Obama has had years now to purge the Pentagon of soldiers who care about real problems, like our radically diminished capacity to win the sort of wars Obama’s projection of weakness is likely to force us to fight in the future.
The Pentagon in general has made bolstering diversity a major priority in the last several years, with Defense Secretary Ash Carter leading the charge with public pronouncements about the benefits of a diverse force and a recent decision to review the ban on transgender servicemembers.
You can’t blame Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Ali Khamenei, and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for snickering gleefully.
The military, Carter has argued, needs to reflect the demographic makeup of the future.
That is, the white minority, homosexualized future our liberal ruling class has planned for us.
As such, the services have made a concerted effort to favor minorities, assigning more weight to race when considering officer promotions.
The effect on morale and retention of letting it be known that promotions are largely based on not being a non–cross-dressing white male should be obvious.
“Diversity makes us a better fighting force,” a senior defense official told USA Today. “It’s not simply a question of equity.”
What utter equum stercoris.
A country that has rejected the concept of merit in favor of political correctness is not going to be winning wars for very long.
The SEALs badge won’t always mean as much as it does now.
