In May, Front Page Magazine broke the story that Air Force Chief of Staff Charles Q. Brown Jr., who had been put forward by Biden as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had signed off on a 43% quota for white male officers.
As the investigative piece warned Brown’s quotas limit the number of white officers to 67% and cut 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. What do you do with those 86% of white male pilots?”
The David Horowitz Freedom Center had led the way into investigating military wokeness as part of its Disloyal Military project which has generated two breakthrough pamphlets, “Disloyal: How The Military Brass Is Betraying Our Country” and “How Obama And Biden Destroyed The Greatest Military The World Has Ever Seen”.
Since Brown’s nomination became official, Shillman Journalism Fellow Daniel Greenfield has made a tour of podcasts and radio shows urging Senate members to challenge the nominee on these racist quotas.
At the Senate Armed Services Committee confirmation hearing, Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-Mo) challenged Brown by asking him point blank, “Do we have too many white officers in the Air Force?”
When Brown tried to dodge the question while claiming that he just wanted the most qualified officers, Sen. Schmitt cited the August memo that had been uncovered by the Front Page Magazine investigation.
“That answer is not consistent with your August 9th memo,” Sen. Schmitt challenged, “that there should be a reduction of about 9% of the white officers. That’s a reduction of 5,400. 5,400 too many white officers.”
Brown argued that the numbers were fair because they were based on national “demographics”.
“Your story about wanting to be the best pilot in the Air Force regardless of race, that is what the military is supposed to be,” Sen. Schmitt told Brown. “It’s this great meritocracy”.
But the senator from Missouri argued that under Brown, the Air Force had lost its way.
“Somehow, some way we ended up in a place where a general in the Air Force is advocating for racial quotas,” Sen. Schmitt. “And I just think that’s wrong.”
While the Senate Armed Services Committee has voted to move Brown’s nomination forward, it goes to the Senate where members will have the opportunity to take a stand against the proposed racial quotas for officers.
Front Page Magazine will continue investigating and exposing the woke brass of the disloyal military to bring accountability and end DEI, racial quotas and cultural Marxism being imposed on our troops.
