In a press release the pentagon press secretary accused Carlson of using “his show to denigrate the contributions of women” asserting the “United States military is the greatest the world has ever seen because of its diversity.” The 2nd Marine Division also attacked Carlson in a tweet after Tucker Carlson, host of FOX News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight (weekdays 8PM/ET), questioned the U.S. military’s mission.
Kirby addressed this because a Fox cable show host used his show to denigrate the contributions of women in the military and to say the Chinese military is catching up to the U.S. military because it does not allow women to serve in the percentage the United States does.
Mar 5, 2021 – China has built the world’s largest navy. Now what’s …
Mar 10, 2021 – President Joe Biden announced that his administration is focused on ostensibly improving the military by making it more friendly to women… “creating maternity flight suits, updating requirements for their hairstyles,” he said.
Kirby addressed the insults to the entire U.S. military straight on. “I want to be very clear right up front, that the diversity of our military is one of our greatest strengths,” he said. “I’ve seen it for myself in long months at sea and in the combat waged by our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. I’ve seen it up on Capitol Hill just this past month. And I see it every day here right at the Pentagon.”
Kirby shared a personal note. “One of the best decisions I ever made was becoming a Navy spouse myself, married to a terrific young naval officer who gave birth to our first child, and then went right back to work doing civil engineering for an air force base in Jacksonville,” he said.
Kirby reiterated Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III’s assertion that the American military works best when it represents all the American people. This is more than just having token minorities but having “the moral courage to include other perspectives and ideas into our decision making — perspectives that as the secretary himself noted Monday, are based on lived experience,” Kirby said. “It’s that experience and the professionalism and commitment of our people that has always been our decisive advantage.”
14 Mar, 2021 – US army halts gender neutral fitness test as women struggle The US army is considering scrapping its new gender neutral fitness test because women have been failing in much larger numbers than men. “…average scores for women so far are said to have been 100 points lower. Congress has now declared that the test in its current form should not be a factor in deciding whether someone gets promoted.” “We have to figure out a way to make it fair to both genders.”
No job in the military is barred to women, the press secretary noted. They fly jets, fight in infantry squads, drive tanks, command warships and soon to lead combatant commands — President Joe Biden has nominated Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost to command U.S. Transportation Command and Army Lt. Gen. Laura Richardson to command U.S. Southern Command.
“To be sure, we still have a lot of work to do to make our military more inclusive, more respectful of everyone, especially women,” Kirby said.
There is a lack of women at senior ranks, Kirby said. “We pledge to do better, and we will,” he said. “What we absolutely won’t do is take personnel advice from a talk show host or the Chinese military. Maybe those folks feel like they have something to prove — that’s on them. We know we’re the greatest military in the world today and even for all the things we need to improve, we know exactly why that’s so.”
Democrats and other American leftists are waging a war against something they call “toxic masculinity.” Any attribute deemed exclusively male is bad. Meanwhile, China is heading in a different direction. It’s decided that its boys have become too feminized and is working hard to inculcate more manly qualities.
The US Military is now openly threatening and trolling journalists and conservatives. Last week US Military Brass carried out a coordinated attack on their latest foe — FOX News host Tucker Carlson. This came after Tucker Carlson mocked the military and Joe Biden for the important new program focusing on “maternity flight suits” for pregnant women…
Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted the Biden administration on Thursday night for using the US military to attack his show after he called out controversial things the Pentagon is doing. “So we’ve got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the US military,” Carlson said.
