Woke Military

FWIW, these incidents always happened aboard carriers, just now with the prevalence of real-time media, social media, and an apparent lack of OPSEC, you hear it about more frequently.

Guarantee if the PLAN lost a navalized Flanker, you would never hear about it in the paper...
With the way things are going, I assume a diversity hire/clown show by default.

The military has shrunk by 2.5℅ in the last year. Projecting for 3-4% drop next year.

I guarantee it's much worse than that due to all of the people they cannot yet get rid of due to the court mandated halt on anti vax expulsions. I know someone very well that this is happening to - appeal denied, only still in because of the courts but already nondeployable or less deployable.

"Every branch of the military is struggling to make its 2022 recruiting goals, officials say"
This NBC article was the first report I had seen of this phenomenon, and that was from June 27. In the time since, they have not solved the problem:
"Citing recruiting woes, Army will shed up to 28,000 troops in next year"
That article was from yesterday, July 19.

So the US military, having made it clear that its internal policies will be fully on the side of the conglomerate, is now losing manpower.
Of course, they still have ample numbers of troops. But it is telling that their recruitment is down.

What they really seem to have lost sight of is the fact that for decades, the largest number of military recruits were white southerners, usually conservative. I'm sure white southerners are still disproportionately represented in the military, but if you're a conservative white southern Christian man today, does anybody really think that you are as motivated as before to serve the government? They are going to lose a core part of their long-term potential by alienating their own people. They might make up for it with somewhat more progressives, but I think very few progressives want to serve in the military regardless of how progressive it becomes.
Rod Dreher actually had a recent blog post on this exact phenomenon.

My suspicion is that they think they can get by largely with technology alone, and that technology will be operated by what Steve Sailer calls the "ex-men" (trannies).

With leftists switching to foaming at the mouth, particularly what they see as a progressive cause against far-right Putin in Ukraine, it is possible they could start drawing in more leftists. There are a lot of feminists and gender benders that get posted on Libs of TikTok.

20 years ago, you wouldn't really associate the corporate world with leftism. But as it became a safe space for them, this stigma has eroded.

For those with military ties, what are you hearing from the inside? Are people leaving?

I get why you'd want to be in the military. But it seems like being in the military has only negatives.

I think the best path is to leave the military full of trannies, lesbians and SJWs. The quicker everything goes left, the quicker the only outcome of a leftist society happens - destruction and hopefully re-birth.

About half my peers are out. The other half are now majors and pretty much locked in since grandfathered into the old retirement program. Some of them that are still in that are prior enlisted are just counting down the days til 20 years and getting out. Most of them figure they've already got 10 years or more in, whats another 10 to get a very very generous retirement plus a second career afterword.

The irony is that if you're driven, you can get out at a captain/major and make significantly more money within a short amount of time (2-3 years) and vastly outpace your earnings potential in the .mil. But most people are scared of change and get institutionalized...but thats a second topic.

Keep in mind the Marine Corps combat arms units are still the most white, southern, male of the services.
But yea probably 2/3 of the folks I know who got in pre-Iraq Surge or around the Iraq Surge like me got out.

I mean as far as why you would join the military... It's a way out and up. I got college paid for with out hurting my parent's finances, got to travel the world, and came out on the other side WAY ahead of my peers in terms of experience, mental faculties, and financially. It catapults you forward if you're successful.
It's still of value, and frankly not any worse than ANY major corporation. The kicker is that its our fighting force. I don't really give a hoot about what HR/corporate homo says about gay pride month. We aren't going to have drag time hour at work (though SOME companies do this and much more).... but you have to have a price.

Behind closed doors, atleast in my expereince, there's still a lot of gay bashing and non-pc interaction you'd expect.

There's still lots of quiet professionals just getting the things done that need to be and ultimately will take back the leadership within the organization.... after this mind rot is purged (which it inevitably will be once we get into an existential war)

I got out about 5 years ago, last good friend I had who was in got med retired about 2-3 years ago so don't have reliable word from the inside any more. I do hope there are some patriots who are riding out the storm and staying in even if that means taking the vaccine, we will need them in place if the next president is ready to do what needs to be done....hell I've considered going back in the reserves myself around spring-summer 2024 if things are looking promising.
