Marine Leader Claims That Catering to Feminism, LGBT Couples is Among ‘Most Important Matters’

This is what the military is focused on these days.

Published

Commandant Gen. David Berger, who is effectively the leader of the Marines, outlined priorities that he believes are the “most important matters for immediate execution” for arguably the most important branch of the U.S. Military.

Among them are catering to transgender personnel and giving more rights to same-sex couples.

Berger wrote in a series of tweets that the Corps must “revise the current parental leave policy to include parental leave for adoptive parents, to include same-sex couples.”

He also wrote that the Marines must “determine feasibility of identifying and recruiting for return-to-active-duty selected female Marines currently in the SMCR and IRR, with a focus on previously gender-restricted units and job specialties.”

Berger did not explain how feminist hiring mandates or catering to gay couples would actually make the Military a stronger or more formidable fighting force, but those goals are clearly now secondary in the age of political correctness.

The Marine Corps Times notes that there is already no difference in how same-sex couples are treated versus regular couples pertaining to military policy.

Maj. Craig Thomas, who works as a spokesman for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, said that the parental leave policy was updated in 2018. He told the Marine Corps Times that it “does not specifically use the terms ‘same-sex couples’, rather it incorporates gender neutral terms to ensure no Marine who rates parental leave is excluded.”

It appears that one of Berger’s top priorities for the Marines is just a platitudinous virtue signal to same-sex couples that does not even accomplish anything other than to codify support for the LGBT agenda into official military policy.

Berger’s mandate for a more feminist military, with more women in the ranks and serving as officers in the Marine infantry, would entail for certain gender-specific barriers to be removed. The only problem with this proposed change in policy is that women are often wholly unqualified for these roles.

The Marine Corps Times noted that only two women have ever passed the notoriously grueling Infantry Officer Course, and there are zero women leading infantry platoons in the Marines. In addition, only 31 women have ever graduated from Marine infantry training as of summer 2019.

“The numbers are the numbers,” the previous Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Robert Neller said to NPR at the time.

“If you want to compete for any MOS [military occupational specialty], man or woman, you compete, and if you meet the standard you earn the MOS,” he added.

The rigorous standards will likely be lowered at some point in order to fulfill the diversity mandate set out by Berger. Political correctness has taken hold over the U.S. Armed Forces, and America will inevitably be weaker and more vulnerable as a result.

18-Wheel Truck’s Supply of Toilet Paper Goes Up in Flames in Texas Crash

This wouldn’t normally be national news.

Published

on

A truck hauling a full load of toiler paper crashed in the Dallas area early Wednesday morning, with precious cargo being ruined.

The crash occurred in I-20 in South Dallas, temporarily shutting down four lanes of the highway. Reports indicate that the driver fell asleep at the wheel. Fortunately, neither he nor the dog on board suffered serious injuries, along with anyone else.

The loss of an entire truckload of toilet paper destined to San Antonio from Alabama is certainly a loss, however. The personal sanitation products have been in high demand since the beginning of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, with many of the nation’s grocery stores being perpetually sold out of the products.

Some retailers have adopted new policies prohibited customers from hoarding toilet paper. Delivery businesses have also taken to offering a free roll of the paper to customers purchasing their products.

Reports indicate that the driver fell asleep at the wheel, perhaps taxed by the urgent demand for the products. Some trucking regulations prohibiting drivers from working more than 11 hours a day have been temporarily suspended by the Trump administration with the hopes of allowing America’s essential retailers to stock the shelves to meet renewed demand.

The freeway reopened later in the day.

You don’t learn to appreciate the simple things in life until you face the prospect of going without them.
