Defense Secretary Mark Esper Announces New Board on ‘Diversity and Inclusion in the Military’
Secretary of Defense Mark Esper announced on Thursday that he will be introducing a new board on “diversity and inclusion in the military” to pay lip service to the new regime of diversity.
“My goal is to effect an enterprise-wide, organizational and cultural shift,” Esper said in a video address to the Department of Defense (DOD).
Esper talked about the legitimacy of structural racism, and other tropes made up by cultural Marxists, showing how the Trump administration is folding to the left-wing mob.
“We are not immune to the forces of bias and prejudice — whether visible or invisible, conscious or unconscious,” Esper continued. “We know this bias burdens many of our Service members, and has direct and indirect impact on the experiences of our minority members, the cultural and ethnic diversity of the force, and representation in our officer ranks. These things have no place in our military; they have no place in our country.”
“Removing bias and prejudice in all its forms and ensuring equal opportunity and respect for all will make us stronger, more capable, and more ready as a joint force,” Esper added. “A diverse and inclusive DoD draws out and builds upon the best in each of us… it brings out the best in America.”
President Trump has become frustrated with Esper in recent weeks as he has undermined law and order throughout the nation, and has contemplated firing the man.
Big League Politics reported on how Trump was convinced by deep state advisers to keep Esper earlier this month:
President Donald Trump reportedly wanted to fire Secretary of Defense Mark Esper over his unwillingness to use federal forces to quell race riots that have shaken the nation, but was ultimately convinced by his aides to keep Esper around despite his insubordination.
According to a Wall Street Journal report, Trump wanted to fire Esper after his betrayal but was talked out of it after consulting with a series of deep state advisers.
“It was a bad day, the president was close to losing confidence in him,” one administration official told the Journal. “Ultimately, he decided to keep him in place.”
President Trump was elected to keep law-and-order, but the violent Black Lives Matter uprising has caused untold damage for weeks under his watch. This happened due in part to Esper’s dogged unwillingness to deploy troops, even going so far as to undermine Trump’s authority publicly.
Esper was also reportedly preparing a resignation letter to bow out of the administration, but was ultimately talked out of his decision by the same deep state advisers pulling the strings to dictate White House policy.
He stabbed President Trump in the back by undermining his authority at a press conference in which he went off-script and made excuses for rioting thugs laying waste to America.
Because of the work of infiltrators like Esper, the Trump administration is actively doing the bidding of America’s domestic enemies.
