If Diversity Is Our Strength, Why Is Our Military So Weak?
ELAINE DONNELLY FROM THE FEDERALIST 7:30 PM | March 30, 2024
   
Our military is in trouble. Chronic recruiting shortages are forcing the Army to cut 16,500 occupational positions, most of them vacant. The Air Force has proposed a reduction of 8,000 troops after missing recruiting goals for the first time in over 20 years. The Navy is short 9,000 sailors, forcing longer deployments for others.
 
Race-conscious “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) policies are making personnel shortages worse. Minority recruitment has remained steady or increased, which is fine, but a steep decline in white recruits almost entirely accounts for the ongoing recruiting crisis.

According to Military.com, in fiscal year 2018, the Army recruited 44,042 new white recruits — 56 percent of the total. In 2023, that number plummeted to 25,070, or 44 percent. In the Navy, white recruit losses accounted for an overall drop of about 9,000 new recruits.

So, what are senior military leaders doing to fix this? They keep claiming without evidence that “diversity is a strategic imperative.” Race-conscious practices, they say, are essential for military readiness and national security.

The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

Because diversity is divisive.
Throwing our allegiances to political parties in the long run gave away our liberty.

Diversity is strength?  I thought ignorance is strength.  I guess I must be confused, but war is still peace and freedom is still slavery, right?  And we've always been at war with East Asia, right?
And when they behead your own people in the wars which are to come, then you will know what this was all about.

Being elite and being inclusive are mutually exclusive.

Marine Corps recruiters are revealing applicants can’t read, write, or do math. Public high schools are failing to prepare students for war much less real jobs

Those guys are scared and rightfully so.
They could find themselves in the middle of a fight with some of those losers and their lives are in the hands of those losers.  9999hair out0000
