WHITE MEN NEED NOT APPLY…
Monday, the Military Leadership Diversity Commission (MLDC) released a report stating that there are too many white men in the highest ranking positions of the military.
The report was presented to the U.S. military by order of Congress under the 2009 National Defense Authorization Act seeking to increase diversity.
The report stated, “The commission’s recommendations support two overriding and related objectives: (1) that the Armed Forces systematically develop a demographically diverse leadership … and (2) that the services pursue a broader approach to diversity that includes the range of backgrounds, skill sets and personal attributes that are necessary to enhancing military performance.”
According to the report, 77 percent of the senior officers on active duty are white, eight percent are black, five percent are Hispanic, and 16 percent are women, and the MDLC believes this is unacceptable.
“Leveraging diversity as a vital strategic military resource will require the commitment, vision, and know-how of leaders at every level. Without this commitment to instill respect for diversity as a core value, the needed cultural change may not take place,” continued the report. LINK
Yeah, because we obviously have trouble winning wars. I mean we all know that the discredited liberal concept of “diversity” will actually make us MORE efficient at and capable of killing terrorists. Hell, why not just put CODE PINK in charge of combat operations? For the record ,what is the CORRECT NUMBER OF WHITE MEN ALLOWED TO GET PROMOTED TO GENERAL? WHAT IS THE QUOTA?
Imagine substituting ANY other color for white in the above article and ANY other bureau or agency for Military. This insanity will only lead to the lowering of standards so that those who otherwise can’t compete can advance. We see it every day and all it does is DESTROY organizations from the inside out.
Maybe it’ s time white families start counseling their children against joining the military if they can’t be sure that the best and the brightest will be leading them into battle. “Diversity” only serves to make weak people feel good about their surroundings and themselves as opposed to actually performing at the highest possible level. The only thing that should drive who gets promoted in our armed forces (or anywhere else for that matter) is who is the best possible candidate for the job. Period. Anything else is a fraud perpetrated on society. “Diversity” is NOT a vital military resource. KILLING BAD GUYS IS. Get it?
Probably not. But let’s see what a REAL LEADER HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS SUBJECT:
The Military Leadership Diversity Commission’s (MLDC) conclusion this week that there are too many white men in senior positions in the military “is a slap in the face” to those minorities who have achieved seniority, according to retired Lt. Colonel and Florida Republican Rep. Allen West.
According to the MLDC’s report, released Monday, 77 percent of active duty senior officers are white, 8 percent are black, 5 percent are Hispanic and 16 percent are women. The report suggested the lack of minorities in military leadership is something that needs to change. To that end, the commission’s report includes 20 recommendations on how to increase the proportion of minority officers in the military in order to create a fighting force that better represents the make up of the population it defends.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, West, who is black, was not pleased with the report, saying that the military is not a social experiment for outside groups to impose their theories. Rather, he said, it is a merit based organization where anybody can succeed. LINK
Colonel West is a true American hero, patriot and champion of core values that made this country what it is… or was. Thank you Colonel West for defending our country, our families and our way of life.
