Maybe you should try defending the enlisted folks, their families, and their values.”
I personally would love American generals to learn much less about “white rage” (no matter that’s) and extra about “not losing wars.”

On Thursday, Vance ripped into the instructing of Critical Race Theory, telling Fox & Friends:
One of the issues that worries me a lot about this Critical Race Theory is that it’s being pushed by all of those highly effective establishments in our society. The Biden administration is pushing it; Google is pushing it; Amazon is funding the curricula. Why do these folks, why do these establishments need us to imagine that white individuals are oppressors, that black individuals are victims, and that America is inherently evil?
Noting that members of the general public had been shut down once they tried to protest on the Loudoun County, Virginia, college board assembly, he asserted:
One of the methods you understand you’re successful a debate is that if they attempt to shut down the dialogue, proper? We know that so many dad and mom, black, white, Democrats, particularly Republicans in fact, they don’t like to show their youngsters that that is essentially a horrible, racist nation. They don’t need this crap of their colleges. They needs to be allowed to specific that viewpoint; and I feel the truth that individuals are making an attempt to close then up suggests we’re really successful. Our facet is definitely successful on this, which signifies that in Loudoun County but in addition throughout the nation, we’ve bought to maintain on urgent this case and carry on making this argument.
