A few Senate Republicans tried to hold the line beginning with Sen. Tuberville, but ultimately the majority of the GOP Senate delegation voted to replace Gen. Milley with an even worse woke leftist racist who has already wrecked the Air Force.
Under Chief of Staff Charles Q. Brown Jr. the Air Force has become the most woke of the major service branches.
Brown disgraced himself and his uniform during the Black Lives Matter race riots by releasing a video in which he “seemed to barely contain his rage” while ranting “that the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution ‘that I’ve sworn my adult life to support and defend’ have not always delivered ‘liberty and equality’ to all.”
Brown signed off on Air Force racial quotas limiting the number of white officers to 67% and cutting white men down to 43%.
The Air Force officer corps is currently 77% white: getting it down to 67%, a reduction of 10%, would require serious effort to purge white officers and bar the doors to any new ones.
Reducing the number of white men in the officer corps to a minority, 43%, would cripple the service and wipe out generations of talent: especially when 86% of pilots are white men.
Most of the Senate GOP refused to listen to warnings about this or is just fine with it.
When Gen. Brown’s nomination finally came to a vote, only 11 Senate Republicans, Sen. Tuberville, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Mike Braun, Sen. Eric Schmitt, Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. J.D. Vance, Sen. Josh Hawley, Sen. Roger Marshall, and Sen. Cynthia Lummis held the line and voted against him.
Most of the rest of the GOP Senate delegation voted for a man who signed off on a 43% racial quota for white male officers.
As a result, Gen. Brown’s nomination passed 83-11.
From Sen. Joni Ernst to Sen. Rand Paul, from Sen. Blackburn to Sen. Rick Scott, from Sen. Lindsey Graham to Sen. Mitt Romney, the Republicans voted for this.
The next time we talk about wokeness in the military, you know whom to blame.
Senate Republicans could have taken a stand. Instead, they voted for someone who will make Gen. Milley look good.
