Time to follow the Army's lead and stand up to the (D)iversity Bullies.
Two weeks ago, a routine meeting was held at the Mississippi base with various leaders of the 158th Infantry Brigade. During the meeting, they discussed an upcoming Christmas football tournament. The equal opportunity officer immediately objected to the usage of the word “Christmas.”Lots of lessons about your local cadre of the (D)iversity industry, and their ilk in general.
“Our equal opportunity representative stopped the briefing and told us that we can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me. “Almost the entire room blew up. Everybody was frustrated. The equal opportunity rep told our commander that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we couldn’t say Christmas celebration. It had to be holiday celebration.”
“She said an individual can say Christmas, but as an organization in the Army you can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me.
So what does the Army have to say about the DEOMI officer’s edict?
“There is no policy at the 158th Infantry Brigade, First Army Division East or First Army that forbids using the word ‘Christmas’,” Public Affairs Chief Amanda Glenn told me.
1. Not the sharpest tools in the shed.
2. They overcompensate in all they do.
3. They are insecure.
4. What they cannot find, they will invent.
5. They do not really support diversity - they enforce compliance with their world view.
6. It is always in the end about the money.
With each passing year they get more and more away from the mainstream, as 1972 gets further and further away as well. As such, they are overextended and their intellectual logistics chain exceptionally vulnerable.
Calmly and fact based - when they give you an opening, you can stand up to them; you should stand up to them. Those who base their world view on race, creed, color, and national origin are the most retrograde force in our military. Show them no quarter.
