But investigators said that Donahoe's tweets to Carlson "exhibited poor judgement" and that the "subsequent media coverage drew national attention ... and it cast the Army in a negative light," Task and Purpose reported.

No it didn't. What the hell?

If you idiots would stop taking Carlson's bait, I'd never have any idea what he says and neither would most other people.

How many people heard Carlson and said "maybe the troops are too feminine!" then heard this guy and said "maybe they're not!" 30? 40?  No one was swayed or moved; this was either done out of algorithm-induced passion or the need to signal team allegiance.

The relatively tiny portion of this country that's obsessed with what happens on Twitter and cable news just looks like a single mass, regardless of tribe, of petty, hysterical morons to most of us.  I'm sure it's why people have an all-time-low opinion of journalists and it's certainly part of why I do.

This guy's bosses weren't saying "we support Tucker", they were saying "we're above this trifling bullshiat".  I sure hope it's true.

Yeah that irks me too.

I get why the military has an interest in members not drawing "negative attention" to the service, but the military also has to STAND for something, right? It can't stand down because it's getting "negative attention" from Nazis.

Somebody(s) holding high space in the IG's office and the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs that went out of their way to gaslight Donahoe and elevate the Traitor Tucker Carlson needs to be relieved of duty.

Except they didn't say, "We're above this trifling bullshiat", or "just ignore that asshole".

Instead they wrung their hands about it bringing "a measurable amount of negative publicity to the Army, enough that (the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs) warned (the Secretary of the Army) of the fallout".

I once witnessed a woman do 3 sets of 10 of 900lb on a leg press, so yeah, women can be strong, tough, smart enough to do a great many things men can do. Maybe she was on roids, but a lot of guys are too these days.

I don't know what right-wing trump sucking cultist wormed his way into the Army's investigation chain of command, but they should get a BCD and get dropped off at the nearest Greyhound station with a ticket back to the hell they climbed out of.

I was assured that anything Tucker says is too stupid to be believed. Does the US military believe him?

2022-10-06 11:00:46 AM  
I completely get his wanting to respond, but it was wrong to rise to the bait and chastising him was correct. A serving general knows better than to touch political issues & snipe at some media personality. Keep the military away from all of that crap.

This was about a segment Tuckems did about the military making changes to boost recruiting among women - including creating a flight suit to accommodate pregnant bodies.

I get why the MGen felt the need to respond, but I also get that the military's official position on Carlson is supposed to be "...who? But before you answer, a follow up: who cares?". Especially from an officer, especially a 2-star.

// because journalists can say whatever damn fool non-inciteful things they want to, and the military goes about its farking civilian-commanded business without caring what or why
// the military's bona fides when it comes to Nazi-killin' are fairly well-established
// maybe its Nazi-rootin'-out abilities could use a polishing-up in the modern era (although my file folder full of Paperclips says this was not always a concern)

Seems like you are very active today in telling Fark we should just ignore right wingers that make statements the majority of America disagrees with.

I wonder if you also think America focuses too much on Trump, who isn't even president, instead of on Biden

The Army doesn't want its leaders engaging with morons like Tucker. Its fight, they believe, probably, that can't win. Pigeons, chessboards, pigs, mud -- all that stuff.

But on the other hand, it seems counterintuitive not to defend both the international brand, as well as the women within it.

The only thing that put the Army in a "negative light" was when the top brass decided to insert their tarnished stars into the discussion. Otherwise nobody else would have noticed or cared.
 
2022-10-06 11:18:55 AM

It is possible that the military changed a lot in the 30 years since I was in, but I suspect he is catching hell for making public statements while identifying as an Army officer. They start telling you in bootcamp that you can express yourself in public forums, but make damn sure you are doing it as a civilian and it doesn't look like you are speaking for the service.
