By Air Force Times. Two weeks ago, two Republican lawmakers launched a whistleblower site to gather complaints from troops about “anti-American indoctrination seeping into parts of our military,” as Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., described it during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Thursday.
Cotton, a former Army infantry captain, detailed a handful of anonymous submissions to the site, set up in partnership Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, a retired SEAL lieutenant commander.
One Marine wrote that his unit’s “mandatory military history training was replaced with training on police brutality, white privilege and systemic racism,” Cotton said. “He reported several officers are now leaving this unit citing that training.” . . .
Beginning his line of questioning Thursday, Cotton asked Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin whether he believed the U.S. military “is a fundamentally racist organization;” whether troops should be treated differently based on their skin color or gender; and whether selections for leadership roles should be based on sex and gender rather than operational and leadership acumen. . .
“I would also say that diversity, equity and inclusion is important to this military now and it will be important in the future,” he said. “We are going to make sure that our military looks like America and that our leadership looks like what’s in the ranks of the military. And I appreciate your support on that.” (Read more from “Senator, SecDef Head-to-Head On ‘Woke’ Military” HERE)

By Daily Mail. . .[Tom Cotton] asked for a yes or no on whether the secretary believed the armed forces were a ‘racist organization.
‘I won’t give you a yes-or-no answer on that, senator, because it deserves more than a yes or no,” said Austin.
‘The military, like any organization, will have its challenges, but I do not believe it is a fundamentally racist organization.’
He was cut off by Cotton who then repeated his demand for a yes-or-no response about where service personnel should be treated differently based on sex or skin color.
‘Again, this question deserves more than a yes-or-no answer,’ Austin replied. (Read more from “‘I Won’t Give You a Yes-or-No Answer on That’: Biden’s Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin Refuses To Say Explicitly if He Thinks the U.S. Armed Forces Are Racist, as He Is Questioned by Sen. Tom Cotton” HERE)

By The Federalist. Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said America’s troops are being indoctrinated with the lie that “the entire U.S. army is racist’” and that the country they represent is “a fundamentally racist and evil nation.”
“I have received, along with Congressman Crenshaw, several hundred whistleblower complaints about Pentagon extremist and diversity training,” Cotton said Thursday during a Senate Armed Services Committee Hearing.
Cotton reported these trainings are leading to “plummeting morale, growing mistrust between the races and sexes where none existed just six months ago, and unexpected retirements and separations.”
“These are not my words,” Cotton emphasized, “These are the words of your own troops.”
Cotton said officers are leaving their positions, in response to the indoctrination: “One marine told us that […] a military history training session was replaced with mandatory training on police brutality, white privilege, and systemic racism. He reported that several officers are now leaving his unit, citing that training.” (Read more from “Tom Cotton: Military Whistleblowers Report Leadership Forcing ‘Anti-American Indoctrination’ on Them (VIDEO)” HERE)
