If Barack Obama was the first anti-American American president then the military under his former vice president is becoming an institution that seems to actively loathe this nation’s traditional values and virtues.

I don’t mean the entire military. I mean the brass, the top leadership. The political generals and admirals promoted by Obama and now Biden are attempting, with some success, to turn the armed forces into a woke social engineering program that inculcates notions not conducive to an effective fighting machine. Coming from a fourth generation military family, I understand this is not only a danger to America, but also a danger to those who serve in uniform. However, the brass doesn’t seem to care about that.

“Biden has turned our military into a woke social experiment,” Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio said in a statement. “It is a stupid way to go about protecting our nation. We need to spend more time thinking about how to counter threats like China, Russia, and North Korea and less time thinking about pronouns.” A recent case is indicative of the problem.

Fox on Wednesday, “The U.S. Navy has revealed that it approached a ‘drag queen influencer’ to help persuade new recruits to join the military. Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, who goes by the stage name ‘Harpy Daniels,’ announced back in November 2022 that he was the Navy’s ‘Digital Ambassador.’ Kelley has over 1,300,000 likes on TikTok…the drag queen claims to have danced in drag for service officers on a number of different occasions, sharing one video from 2018.

‘From joining to 2016 and being able to share my drag experience on my off time with my fellow sailors has been a blessing,” Kelley wrote. ‘This experience has brought me so much strength, courage and ambition to continue being an advocate and representation of queer sailors!’ ”

The best thing about the above statement? As an Army vet, it makes all the gay Navy jokes I’ve told over the years that much funnier. And the drag queen incident has not gone unnoticed by the media.

Do you support individual military members being able to opt out of getting the COVID vaccine?

“If you don’t identify as a man or a woman, but are into the drag queen scene, join the Navy. That’s the message here. It’s not about your country. It’s not about teamwork. It’s not about the mission. It’s about you and your identity. You’re the star of the show,” opined Fox host Jesse Waters. But, to be fair, it’s not just the Navy.

A Space Force Lt. Colonel, Matthew Lohmeier, was relieved of his command for, get this, criticizing Marxism. Yup, can’t do that in Biden’s military. I guess we’ll conveniently forget that our most dangerous potential adversary, China, is a Marxist state. His take on the drag queen drama?

“We’ve known for the past couple of years during the Biden administration, this has been taking place more and more. What’s surprising is that senior military leaders continue to push an agenda like this despite the fact that it’s hurting our recruiting efforts and it’s hurting our retention,” Lohmeier said.

As a former Army Intelligence analyst, one who previously thought drag queens were confined to the Air Force, I’m betting the Chinese and other possible enemies know they have a window for action against our national interests. It will hopefully end on January 20th 2025. Until then, the anti-American drag queen military is not likely to deter those powers.

Which means American sailors, soldiers, airmen, guardsmen, Marines, and guardians could die because of woke social programming. To quote Harry Callahan, “That’s a hell of a price to pay for being stylish.”
