Goodbye To The Army And Marines: Political Correctness Has Taken Over

BY Herschel Smith

…On the other hand, because of political correctness, in the Spring of this year, US Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley was condemned by the Joints Chiefs of Staff (JCS) and relieved of teaching duties at Joint Forces Staff College for teaching a course judged to be offensive to Islam.  The course he taught, Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism, was an elective course that Lt. Col. Dooley’s superiors judged as presenting Islam in a negative way. His superiors were persuaded to come to this conclusion after receiving an October 2011 letter in which 57 Muslim organizations claimed to be offended by the course.  The fact that Lt. Col. Dooley is a highly decorated combat veteran with  nearly 20 years of service under his belt apparently held little or no sway with the JCS.  As a matter of fact, JCS Chairman General Martin Dempsey “personally attacked” Lt. Col. Dooley on C-Span on May 10, 2012, during a Pentagon News Conference…

As the article goes on to record, slots at Ranger School are now being given to women. And women still can’t (legally or physically) serve in combat.

Of course the reason for this is that women are demanding promotions to the upper ranks including slots that require certain “tickets” get punched. And Ranger qualification is one of them.

But at some time in the future (and it may be happening now) an American Soldier is going to need another trained, capable soldier at his back and that soldier won’t be there. Instead, eventually, some female general office with a Ranger Tab on her chest will influencing or even directing the actions and be responsible for the lives of our soldiers. To what result, God knows.

We don’t have a huge army of draftees anymore, all the men on the front lines are volunteers and professionals. We owe them the assurance that we will not continue to play political correct games with their lives.

I’m not going to hold my breath…

Here’s where I get in trouble…
