Biden’s woke brass keep claiming that adopting every leftist agenda from DEI to abortion to sexual identity politics to HIV deployment is not interfering with military readiness in any way.
Except when they admit it themselves.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Tuesday said there will be “powerful effects” on military readiness if Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) continues to hold up more than 150 Pentagon nominees over an abortion policy in the Defense Department.
Austin told the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) the U.S. is facing “one of the most complex times” with foreign adversaries and approving the Pentagon’s nominees is “absolutely critical in terms of the impact on the force.”
“Not approving the recommendations for promotions actually creates a ripple effect in the force that makes us far less ready than we need to be,” the defense secretary said.
Approving any Biden nominations is more likely to harm our national security and military readiness than leaving a hole there.
But what Austin unintentionally admitted here is that pursuing the abortion policy is worth it even if it undermines military readiness. Austin could drop the policy or convince the Biden regime to drop its abortion agenda for the military rather than threaten military readiness. Here he admits that the consequences of the abortion policy threaten military readiness, but decides to stick with abortion over military readiness.
Abortion Uber Alles is the creed here. Military readiness can go to hell as long as there’s some shiny leftist object in the way.
