Patriotic young people considering military service would find it “very difficult” to serve under a president as rabidly left-wing as Joe Biden, a Republican member of Congress said on Tuesday.
A Navy video instructing sailors how to use people’s preferred pronouns would repel anyone who does not wish to end up “indoctrinated in their agenda [and] forced to take a vaccine,” Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) told “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins.” For those people, “It would be very difficult to raise your right hand and swear an oath … to serve under this president, because he’s more concerned about progressive, leftist policies than serving our country and protecting the nation’s borders.” Steube also cited Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, which observers frequently compared to the fall of Saigon.
A controversial, four-minute-long video, released during Pride Month, drew instant criticism for its melding of extreme transgender ideology and childlike production values. “Hi, my name is Jony, and I use he/him pronouns!” begins a male named Jony Rozon. He and Conchy Vasquez coach enlisted personnel to always “include our pronouns in our emails” and “introduce ourselves using our pronouns.” If someone is “going through the process of discovery” and does not wish to reveal his or her preferred pronouns, “just continue to use gender-neutral language,” they instruct.
“How do we go about creating a safe space for everybody?” asked Vasquez in the video, created for members of the U.S. military.
