If only he had stayed on into 2015, Corporal Klinger would be honored as a heroic pathfinder for a military that is making room for supposedly tens of thousands of “transgendered” members. Probably more like a few hundred of the most serious mentally ill, but who really knows. This is a true story. Check the link.
Anyway, the US military has not won a war in a long time and instead spends its energies on bloated weapons programs and outdoing itself to embrace the transient ideological goals of the administration and the leftist hivemind, such as gay rights and feminism. Facts be damned!
It is all totally pathetic and bizarre. A disgraceful self-humiliation of an institution that has an important job to do. An institution I spent a good part of my youth holding on a very high pedestal. But, like the Constitution I also once revered, it’s now more and more coextensive with an anti-American counter-culture regime, and the military’s native trajectory–manliness, courage, teamwork, moral straightness–is anathema to the regime and its leaders’ values.
Like Stalin’s Soviet Union, we’ll see accelerated purges of those “wreckers” who won’t embrace this latest fad with sufficient ardor. Indeed, members of the protected classes will find themselves put out along with the hated white males, simply for speaking the truth or trying to keep standards high. They’ll be given short shrift, just like the poor Kulaks and erstwhile leaders that were thrown out along with the aristocrats in the Soviet Union. The only thing that matters now to the regime and its thoroughly servile deputies is ideological correctness.
Pretty soon they’ll be putting commissars out in the ranks; after all, they learned how to impose revolutionary change from the best (and in many cases are descended from them). It’s more and more necessary to study how to survive and maintain one’s integrity in a hostile system. We can look to the early Christians, the martyrs of Mexico’s Cristeros War, and the dissidents of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact for inspiration and tactics. We already need them both.
