Former Army Officer: Political Correctness is Ruining the United States Military

May 12, 2015

I’m no military expert and I’ve never served but I admire those who do. Even so, you don’t have to be a four star general to know that America’s military has been weakened by progressive policies on Obama’s watch.

Via Instapundit, a former Army intelligence officer writes at the Daily Caller…

Political Correctness Has Destroyed The Army’s Readiness And Morale

The U.S. Army is facing its greatest danger as an institution since the 1970’s. Stricken with morale and readiness problems, it is also under attack from leftist social engineers who are determined to remake the Army, even if they have to destroy it.

In the 1980’s, men who carried the burden of terrible lessons learned in Vietnam rebuilt the U.S. Army. They created a spectacularly professional force that annihilated Saddam’s legions in a defeat not seen since Agincourt.

That Army is nearly extinct.

During the Clinton administration, the Army was under pressure to open all military occupational specialties to women and to change the culture of the institution. Army policy soon included stress cards, coed basic training, ability group runs and sensitivity classes.


A demoralized military is not what America needs as ISIS marches across the Middle East.

By the way, have you heard that they’ve opened a hotel?
