When soldiers are in the midst of war, the point is to hinder and destroy the enemy at all costs. That means a soldier must learn how to shoot, as well as stop the enemy’s ability to attack.
The issue of personal sexual preference is not something that should ever even cross the minds of men or women trying to survive in a combat zone, under fire. But over the last few years under former President Obama, the transgender community has brought that discussion to the forefront of society and not even the military has escaped it.
As a result of a recent policy change, all soldiers in the military are now required to take a 50-minute transgender sensitivity training session. That news has not been well-received among many career soldiers, and they are asking for help from the Trump administration to end this nonsense.
From Independent Journal Review:
[Dale] Comstock has seen more war than the average American can wrap their head around. In fact, he’s served in every major campaign from Grenada in 1983 to present-day conflicts.
“This whole political-social experiment is not helping. The reality is, it’s in the Army, it’s in the Navy, it’s in the military. And unless Mattis and Trump rescind all these policies and stop this madness, it’s here to stay.
It affects morale and combat readiness on many levels. At the end of the day, war fighting is about one thing: Killing people. It’s about bringing home our guys alive. It’s not about being sensitive to a transgender. This isn’t corporate America, this is the military.
You can’t just put some policy in place because you want people to feel equal. Most guys who join the military, especially special operations forces, were the boys who had dirt clod fights on the playground, wrestled and fist fought, stole each other’s girlfriends, and pledged allegiance to the flag. And that same spirit and apex predator mindset goes with us into the military.”
Comstock said that policies accommodating transgenders could endanger the lives of American soldiers in the field:
Comstock explained how policies to be more sensitive to others are affecting our guys overseas. “I was in Afghanistan working for a government agency. And this one guy was there with us in the middle of a war zone, but he hadn’t gone through his Equal Opportunity training. So they flew a bird out to get him in the midst of a war zone. That type of thing can immediately give away our position to the enemy.”
In another instance, two transgender special forces trainees posted lewd pictures on Instagram that brought a very negative response from the training leader:
“The entire class got smoked because two guys were transgenders on Instagram taking pictures of them kissing and doing other stuff, and all that. And they were talking about how they’re going to be Green Berets and all that on Instagram.
The head of the class was livid. He told the entire class to go home and get some rest and be ready for a long smoke session. A smoke session is like collective punishment. The takeaway from the smoke session was that these two a**holes were tarnishing the reputation of their unit.”
He finally concluded by saying:
“You’re putting good young men in peril just because you want everyone in America to feel good. Being in the military isn’t about being equal or feeling good, it’s about being the best warfighter or helper to other warfighters, possible. Throwing more social experiments in the foray of it all will only cost more lives when these guys could and should be spending 50 minutes mastering the art of warfare instead.”
The military is no place for discussions about sexual preference other than to say “keep it to yourself.” The military isn’t here to spend time in sensitivity training. It’s here to fight for the rights of all Americans to exist freely and securely on this continent.
Hopefully, President Trump will rescind the requirement for mandatory sensitivity training soon, before it results in a tragedy that could hurt the front line soldiers severely!
