WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - All branches of the U.S. Military are being crushed under LGBT and gender diversity politics. 2016 has been a year of drastic change in the U.S. military, with the Obama administration forcing politically correct policies from top to bottom.
On Friday, September 30, the Department of Defense (DOD) released a handbook "to assist our transgender Service members in their gender transition, help commanders with their duties and responsibilities, and help all Service members understand new policies enabling the open service of transgender Service members."
In June, Defense Secretary Ash Carter repealed the ban on so-called transgenders serving in the military. In September, the Pentagon announced it would fund sex change operations for active-duty personnel.
A Pentagon spokesman commented that "service members with a diagnosis from a military medical provider indicating that gender transition is medically necessary will be provided medical care and treatment for the diagnosed medical condition."
Taxpayer money would provide behavioral health care, hormone therapy and even so-called gender reassignment surgery.
On the same day as the release of the Pentagon's transgender handbook, the Air Force introduced rules to impose more "diversity" in command roles. The Air Force document states, "This initiative will require that the pool of Airmen considered for key military developmental positions ... include at least one qualified, diverse candidate."
The document further notes, "To ensure that varied perspectives and experiences are represented when considering candidates for future command positions, and to promote greater diversity of those considered for command, this initiative will require diverse membership on the panels" that select candidates.
The Air Force is maintaining, "This is not about social engineering. This is about maintaining a competitive advantage."
In March, all Marines received "unconscious bias training" in preparation for opening up combat roles to women. ChurchMilitant.com reported earlier that 86 percent of women who apply for combat roles fail. After five months of testing it's shown that six out of seven women can't pass the physical fitness test required for combat jobs.
All-male teams outperformed mixed-gender units by almost 70 percent. In the performance of routine duties female Marines actually needed "regular assistance" from their male counterparts. In activities requiring short bursts of high intensity the top 25 percent of females were on par with the bottom 25 percent of male Marines with females suffering more injuries.
In September, ChurchMilitant.com reported that the Navy is mandating transgender sensitivity re-education for all personnel in preparation for the Pentagon's deadline for accepting transgenders. The Navy announced in July that it's naming a new ship after homosexual pervert and sexual predator Harvey Milk. Another ship is being named after activist Cesar Chavez, who commented that his two years in the Navy were "the worst two years" of his life.
Both the Navy and the Marines replaced job titles that include the word "man," such as "rifleman" and "fire controlman," with the Navy changing 91 titles and the Marines 19.
Speaking about upper-level officers who seem to be giving in to political pressure from the Obama administration, Fox News analyst U.S. Navy Capt. Chuck Nash commented to World Net Daily, "Grow a pair. That's your doggone job. You're a friggin' four-star [general]."
Maybe these guys not only have just rolled over, maybe they've just quit. Maybe it's just too hard to deal with the current administration. So you're not going to fight that fight. You're going to wait until somebody else comes along. Depending on who that somebody else is, they may be rolling over for a long time.
