When you learn what the Defense Department has been drilling into our fighting forces about the ills of American society and culture, you might well wonder which country our brave men and women in uniform are fighting for.
Just last week, Western Journalism told you about and Army training session on diversity where some 400 soldiers were lectured about the harm that “white privilege” does to race relations.
After loud complaints over parts of the program that included such material as “race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them,” the Army said inclusion of that subject matter was a “mistake.” The brass called it an unauthorized addition to the Equal Opportunity briefing at Fort Gordon, Ga.
But now The Daily Caller has found even more evidence that the Defense Department is trying to influence the armed forces in ways that many would consider outrageous, if not borderline treasonous.
According to a presentation prepared by a group called the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), reveals The Daily Caller investigation, an approved course on sexism points the finger of blame directly at three “cherished texts” — the Bible, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
According to the course, the Bible has “quotes” which can be interpreted as sexist by readers.
The Declaration of Independence is also an historical cause of sexism, as the document refers only to ”all men” — not “men and women.”
And the Constitution, the Pentagon argues, is an historical source of sexism because “slaves and women were not included until later in history.”
Apparently, once the nature of the sexism course was brought to light, the Defense Department decided it would be a good idea to remove the controversial materials from public view, at least temporarily.
“But following TheDC’s request for comment, the sexism course — as well as two other courses listed on DEOMI’s website, entitled ‘Prejudice & Discrimination’ and ‘Racism’ — were taken offline.
“’This course is currently offline and under revision,’ a notice says under all three courses.”
On its website, the institute responsible for developing and teaching courses such as the one on sexism, racism and prejudice describes its mission: “To enhance mission readiness from development through delivery of world-class human relations education, training, and innovate solutions for our customers.”
Among the organization’s “2015 Special Observance Themes” that it promotes — in addition to “Black History Month,” “Women’s History Month,” Holocaust Remembrance Day,” and the like — is “LGBT Pride Month,” celebrated throughout June by presidential proclamation.
