Thirty Republicans in the House of Representatives sent a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin warning that left-wing extremism is causing weakness in the institution of the United States military.
“We write to express concern about the growing trend of left-wing extremism and politicization in our armed forces. The military’s long history of standing above politics has made it one of the most respected institutions in America and enabled our armed forces to both defend the Homeland and serve as one of the bulwarks of our constitutional order. That legacy is now in jeopardy.”
GOP lawmakers are aware of the changes within the US military that are being pushed by leftist ideals and creating a weaker defense presence. This includes many actions to make the military abide by politically correct standards that the left continues to push into all aspects of society. Americans need a strong military, and the left is creating standards to combat this strength.
Additionally, the essence of armed forces traditions and hierarchy is under attack. This includes the way that soldiers undergo training in order to defend this great nation. Military institutions are being forced to teach anti-law enforcement classes and other leftist ideals in order to widen the divide between order and chaos.
