The Pentagon created a policy mess nine years ago by trying to tackle "extremism" in the military, and it’s about to get a lot messier.
In 2012, it amended DOD Instruction 1325.06, which outlines activities from which military personnel are prohibited.
The rule was reasonably clear before – it said active-duty personnel cannot "actively advocate supremacist doctrine, ideology or causes, including those that advance, encourage or advocate illegal discrimination based on race, creed, color, sex, religion, ethnicity or national origin…" It also said military personnel can’t actively participate in any groups that advocate this discrimination. https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/pentagon-extremism-blunder-us-military-political-jason-beardsley
