From The Category Of ‘Really Bad Ideas’: US Military Lowers Their Standards… Again

The Left has created a generation of young Americans who won’t salute the flag.  They do not know the pledge of allegiance. In fact, from 2009 to 2019 when I taught high school, I don’t recall any classroom having an American flag in it. We all heard a young Olympian say that she wanted to get on the podium so she could use that platform to burn our flag. It is no wonder that military recruitment has dropped off dramatically.  Who in their right mind, with any degree of patriotism, would want to serve under our current President. You would be a pawn in his regime’s efforts to destroy America, bringing her to her knees economically in order to step in and “save” the masses.

Leftist teachers have indoctrinated our youth to think our country is chock full of white supremacists ready to overthrow the government and hungry to reign over masses of “brown” people to which they believe they are superior because of their whiteness.

They promote LGBTQ…recruitment, and advancement in all positions, including in the military.  If you can think for yourself, and so have done some research and decided you do not need a COVID vaccine and boosters, they think you are unfit for military service. If you are critical of the inept way our leaders exited Afghanistan, and say there needs to be accountability, you lose your commission.

Bottom line is, if you tell the truth about our country and what is happening, rather than spouting their lies and Woke policies, and/or you believe in our Constitution as written including our first and second amendments, and/or you go to church, and/or believe human life begins at conception, you are a deplorable, and “the enemy of the state.” When Biden claims he is out to “unify” the American people, it is a blatant lie.  All that I said in the above paragraphs proves this.

Now, high school diplomas are no longer required for military service. As a recently retired high school teacher, I know how few students, in CA, are allowed to fail and not receive a diploma.  While I was teaching, the requirement of passing the high school exit exam was dropped.  It was, purportedly, discriminatory. What it did was cull out those who did not read and understand English. If you were in school, you had lots of opportunities to learn English.  All non-English speakers received ESL(English as a second language) classes for as many years as necessary.

To be one of the few that don’t get a diploma, you have to not even bother to attend school.  As a high school teacher I was warned that someone who showed up for class and turned in a paper with a name on it should get a C- for that day.  That way, when the student failed all their exams, and did not turn in any homework, they could still get a D- and obtain a diploma. The paper with the student’s name on it did not have to reflect that ANY actual work relevant to the day’s lesson was performed by the student.

So, now, that, you see, is to be caliber of recruit we will allow to serve in our military. I suppose our leaders believe these unmotivated, illiterates can be molded into the perfect soldier: one who will never try to think for himself/herself/itself/themself. I believe this is just another mechanism being deployed to destroy our military and our country.
