US Military: on the cutting edge of Liberalism

Hey, I didn't say it, Rowan Scarborough did (well quoting, ahem, you-know-who).
The U.S. armed forces has become a prime engineer of liberal social experiments, while condoning double standards for how men and women are punished for sexual misconduct, say people fighting what they consider political correctness on campus and in the military.
"The military is not a conservative organization," said Elaine Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness (CMR). "It is on the cutting edge of liberal social change."
Ah, yes. The gift that keeps on giving. Women in the military. There is a very accurate pull quote though, one that is right on the target.
She accused the Army of violating its own regulation against embedding female soldiers in support companies that deploy with land combat units. She said the Pentagon too often agrees with "ideological feminists" who "want to change the culture of the military in rather radical ways."
"Women in the military are not the problem," she said. "It's the policy-makers." There are, she said, "many generals making policy in the Pentagon who have daughters in the military."
We just do what we are told - and try to keep our opinions out of the wrong ears.
