As I wrote in, How Obama Sabotaged the American Military, once you embed a mission statement and then build a bureaucratic infrastructure around it within an organization, it’s all but lost.
That’s what happened on college campuses, and it’s what the Obama administration began doing to the military.
One of the fights over the NDAA was an attempt by Dems to embed an official Office of Extremism into the Pentagon as opposed to the current working group.
Brown, a member of the Armed Services and Veterans’ Affairs Committees, sponsored an amendment to the House-passed version of the National Defense Authorization Act that would bulk up the Pentagon’s antiextremism response — including by establishing an “Office of Countering Extremism” within the Defense Department. Sen. MARK WARNER (D-Va.) this week introduced a companion amendment to the Senate’s version of the annual defense policy bill.
That failed. And Comrade Warren is fuming.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who typically votes against the annual defense bill, slammed the compromise package for its “failure to include a robust response to sexual violence and to deal with extremism in the military.”
Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.), a House Armed Services member, said he would oppose the final bill because it doesn’t adequately address racial bias in the justice system or extremism, calling the bill an “unconscionable failure” by Democrats. Brown’s provision to establish a Pentagon office of countering extremism was left out of the final bill.
It’s been a bad week for Comrade Warren, between losing Comrade Omarova’s nomination and now a failure to embed political commissars in the military. Overall, not such a good week for the Communist wing of the Democrat Party.
