Editor’s Note: From the Back Forty is Liberty Nation’s longest-running and hottest weekly column. Capturing the reality every week from heartlanders in flyover states, LN provides voice to the hard-working Americans in any other case ignored by the coastal elites.
The Department of Defense is handing out last-minute presents to servicemen and ladies this yr as they proceed the campaign to go woke. Active-duty servicemen and ladies are being sidelined for refusing the COVID vaccination and now, including insult to harm, these nonetheless accumulating a stipend for safeguarding this nation have been delivered a 40-page survey on “workplace and gender relations.” It is strongly prompt all on the payroll maintain their nostril and reply.
The survey, delivered on Dec. 9, consists of a section titled “Social Perceptions & Experiences,” and a few of us assume it’s designed to establish males who might not really feel that girls belong on the entrance traces. This annual pulse test in search of misogyny comes from the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act – the Obama administration’s heat and fuzzy pandering to LGBTQ and the progressives that hope to struggle side-by-side with of us who can’t resolve on their very own gender standing. And that can be included in the shiny and up to date 2021 survey. There are three packing containers to test: Male, feminine, or transgender.
What Are They as much as Now?
Respondents are given the liberty to agree strongly or disagree, and there are even solutions for fence-sitters in the “I don’t know or care” center. Many questions make it obvious that a sissifying plot is underfoot:
- “Many women have a quality of purity that few men possess.”
- “Women should be cherished and protected by men.”
- “Women seek to gain power by getting control over men.”
- “Every man ought to have a woman whom he adores.”
Whoever wrote this swill has not met the likes of Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), who was blown up serving her nation, or Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who served in Iraq on a twelve-month tour. And let’s not overlook former Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ), an Air Force pilot and the primary feminine U.S. fighter pilot to fly in fight. These three girls must be offended by survey statements similar to “Men are incomplete without women,” “Women exaggerate problems they have at work,” “Once a woman gets a man to commit to her, she usually tries to put him on a tight leash,” and this gem, “When women lose to men in a fair competition, they typically complain about being discriminated against.”
The fits and medal-wearers in the Swamp might have misplaced their manner. One Georgia man was almost beside himself on the information. Griffin Garrett, who served his nation, steamed, “The pussification of our military needs to stop. They’re there to put a bullet in the enemy SIMPLE. Our enemies are reading this garbage.”
James Gragg in Las Vegas identified what most flyover of us most likely assume: “Who cares about genders? Fighting is about killing the enemy.” And Madeline Ricci of Texas introduced the dialog to a halt with this statement: “Yep, here we are f’ing around with pronouns while China and Russia openly mock us.”
Heartlanders do keep watch over the tales the activist media keep away from, thank God.
