CRT destructive to military cohesion, mutual trust

soldiers marching 2A conservative military watchdog is concerned that Joe Biden's executive order regarding critical race theory (CRT) could seriously impact the military in a negative way.

Upon entering office, Biden wasted no time before revoking a Trump administration directive that ended the divisive and racially-charged instruction programs in all government agencies. President Trump called such training "anti-American propaganda" and tweeted in September, "This is a sickness that cannot be allowed to continue. Please report any sightings so we can quickly extinguish!"

Now, Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness (CMR), says Defense Department schools at all levels -- from the service academies to elementary schools for dependent children -- will likely introduce critical race theory programs that accuse non-minorities of "white supremacy" and "systematic racism."

"To say that critical race theory now will be taught and ascribed to in all institutions in American life -- this will affect the military in a way that's even worse," Donnelly asserts. "The idea of critical race theory is to accuse people who are not minorities, white people in other words, of white supremacy."

She wonders how anyone in the military is supposed to participate in classes like this.

"Your commanding officer is saying to the minority person Well, you should know that that white guy over there is against you; that's a white supremacist over there, and yet those two people are supposed to go off and fight wars together? It is so destructive to cohesion and mutual trust," Donnelly submits. "Mutual trust is essential for readiness for battle. It is just a very perverse thing to do."

Biden has also abolished Trump's 1776 Commission, which presented an even-handed view of American history, and replaced it with the "woke" critical race theory claims of the 1619 Project.
