There is an irreconcilable clash of values between most of the military and “woke” culture. From Brandon Smith at alt-market.com:
The social justice cult never sleeps, they are forever “woke”, and they want to own the US military. They want it so bad they are frothing at the mouth over it. Whether or not they actually get what they want is another matter entirely. The induction of Joe Biden into the White House has opened the door to a new propaganda narrative, and it goes a little something like this: “The military is rife with ‘white supremacists’ and extremists, and it needs to be purged to make way for more diversity…” One of Biden’s first actions upon entering the Oval Office was to use Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin as a foil to preach the critical race theory gospel and attack the current military framework as “racist”.
