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

This is what the military is focused on these days.

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.

YUGE: DHS Creating Statue Defense Task Force to Defend National Heritage Against Leftist Thuggery

Finally getting serious?

Published

on

The Department of Homeland Security has created a law enforcement task force to prevent the destruction and vandalism of statues and monuments commemorating the heritage and history of the United States. The task force was announced in a statement from Acting Secretary Chad Wolf on Wednesday.

DHS is answering the President’s call to use our law enforcement personnel across the country to protect our historic landmarks,” said Wolf. “We won’t stand idly by while violent anarchists and rioters seek not only to vandalize and destroy the symbols of our nation, but to disrupt law and order and sow chaos in our communities.”

A lackadaisical federal response to the rounds of statue destruction and cultural vandalism has enabled left-wing rioters to destroy statues with impunity. Only recently did federal authorities begin to signal that they intent to start seriously punishing criminal suspects who destroy images of Presidents and great American men.

The Department of Justice announced late last week that four men suspected in a failed vandalism attempt targeting the statue of former President Andrew Jackson in Washington DC’s Lafayette Square have been indicted on federal charges of destruction of federal property.

DOJ Charges Four Men in Vandalism Attempt on Andrew Jackson Statue, One Arrested

President Donald Trump signed an executive order late last month mandating that federal prosecutors assign stricter penalties to left-wing cultural criminals seeking to destroy statues and images commemorating the national heritage of the United States.

It’s likely that when the punks of ANTIFA realize that they’ll stand to spend years in federal prison for criminal acts of vandalism targeting American heritage, they’ll back down into the cracks of society from whence they came.
