We absolutely cannot have anyone in the military tolerating people who are different to them, or the nukes stop working.

I remember 10 years ago, when pride parade were canceled by the police, and/or were attacked.

It wasn't too long ago that the pride parade in some cities in Ukraine had more police than marchers.

The further Ukraine moves from Russia, culturally, the greater the acceptance of LGBT+ people. There is a neat opportunity for LGBT people right now. By pushing the differences between Ukraine and Russia, they can also piggyback the differences for LGBT people in each country. There is already a growing push that views Russian language speakers with distrust in some areas, as Ukrainian becomes stronger and more prevalent.

Granted, Ukraine has a LONG way to go, at least right now they are slowly going in the direction of equality and civil rights.

I don't use the word that way normally, but I think it's specifically about being aware of injustices in society, even if they don't directly affect you.

So, I consider the ones badmouthing 'woke' to be taking a pro-stupidity stance.

"Woke" has been a term used in African American culture since the 1930s.  It meant keeping your eyes open and staying aware of political and social issues that affected the black community.


Here's Leadbelly using the term in a song from 1938

Lead Belly - "Scottsboro Boys"

The term entered mainstream political consciousness thanks to "Black twitter" (where all the cool white people get their slang these days) and Black Lives Matter whereupon it was quickly seized upon by terrible racist right wingers who have ruined it in less then a decade.

it's bad because black people might start demanding equal treatment and being uppity and not realizing their social place,  and white men would feel uncomfortable about that.

Seriously this is actually the real argument.

Notice how they never give an example of a policy that they would call woke, and they never explain how this policy would undermine military effectiveness or readiness.

The word woke is useless and meaningless in their mouths. It's just a dog whistle.

They've realised that it's more acceptable to say that they're anti-woke rather than pro-bigot.

Yeah, it's terrible if we disrespect our fellows in arms, and get told to get over someone existing.

Woke is just another example of how folks want to disrespect society for DARING to change. To tell us to treat each other with a basic modicum of respect.

'Woke' is a term that was coined to illustrate the realization that we live in a society that has been intrinsically linked to racism, and that many of the forms of racism are systemic and reinforced by society. The very backlash against 'Wokeness' is a self-defense strategy to defend being a bigot. And in part, very reactionary to the portion of the show that is implied in its use to 'stay angry.'

Angry minorities don't stay oppressed. And that terrifies some folks. Especially as they see folks appropriating the term outside the Black community. It means that they may just have to grow the f*ck up.

Here's the thing. People are really speaking about two different issues when they discuss 'wokeness' in the military.

On one hand, you have politicians like this pissant who consider the mere ALLOWANCE of Trans people or whatever to be some kind of death knell for unit cohesion. Its not. By and large, the youth that make up the military dont really give a shiat, and the old guard that DO, are generally phased out every 5 years as the military generally stays fairly mobile and liquid with leadership refreshes.

The Military side of the issue is when such accommodation's provide actual unit problems. case in point: You have an entire formation form up on friday at 4pm, and task soldiers with listening to 2 hours of mandatory 'Gay is Ok' government propaganda, when they'd rather be released to go home. Even the gay troops in formation are pissed off.
When you have INDIVIDUALS who believe they deserve special accommodation such as an Navy Lt undergoing transition, demanding the crew he's worked with for 2 years start calling him Ma'am, and attempting to mast a junior sailor who calls him sir despite him being in Male uniform, having no official records change of either name or gender, and having a mustache within typical military regulations.

So the issue isnt whether being woke is detrimental to the military because its not. The point is whether individuals or units using wokeness as an excuse for bad policy or behaviour are causing disciplinary issues. the answer is yes, and as the military is generally good at doing, it will weed and remove these distractions out fairly quickly.
 
2022-09-29 8:31:38 AM  
So he wants to purge the US military of anyone who isn't a white nationalist. We let way too many pieces of shiat like Pompeo and Trump's other Nazi criminals run around just shiatting all over everything.
