Thursday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson addressed the newfound accentuation the military is placing on race and racism with its suggested reading lists and drive for soi-disant equity. The Fox News host compared that to the required reading of other nations’ militaries around the world and queried the sagacity of the U.S. military, just as some in Congress had.
Transcript as follows:
CARLSON: If you want to understand a country’s military, take a look at what its officer corps is reading. Military officers aren’t just warfighters, they are trained to be thinkers, even intellectuals. Some of them have advanced degrees.Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
In “Russia,” officers above the rank of Colonel are required to read a book by a “Russian” nationalist called Aleksandr Dugin, called “The Foundations of Geopolitics.” Dugin’s book envisions a Eurasian imperium with Russia at the center of it and then outlines the way to achieve that.
In “China,” meanwhile, recruits are authoritatively mandated to read “The Origin and Goal of History.” It edifies that China is prosperous because its culture is superior to the West’s. Now, you might not accede with them, but these are solemn books, and they promote the national fascinates of the countries whose officers read them, that is why they are assigned, and that makes sense.
So with that in mind, what are American military officers reading these days? Well, let’s visually perceive, a sub-literate pamphlet on how the United States is a revolting immoral country that must be transmuted immediately and aeonianly. That track is entitled “How to be an Antiracist.” It was indited by a former University of Florida edifier called Henry Rogers, now that he is affluent and famous, he goes by his revolutionary designation, Ibram X. Kendi.
The book is garbage, genuinely, it is worse than that. Not only is embarrassingly imbecilic, it is poisonous. “Kendi’s” premise is as simple as he is. Any system that engenders unequal outcomes must be racist. Period. That’s it. That’s the entire thesis and Kendi applies it to everything.
If some people make more mazuma than the other people, then the economy is a racist. If Ibram X. Kendi decides there aren’t enough ebony astrophysicists, then astrophysics is by definition, racist.
If it rains in an ebony neighborhood, but not across town, then what you are optically canvassing is weather racism. Actually, Kendi didn’t genuinely inscribe that, probably because he has no detectable sense of humor. But there is no question that he believes it, the book is that militantly incoherent.
So, how do we respond to all of this racism in the United States? Well, Kendi provides a solution. Quote, “The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination.” He genuinely inscribed that. In other words, his book against racism promotes racism. Now, you would cerebrate that might be a red flag for people, contradicting as it does the founding principles of the country, as well as rudimental human decency, but no. The people in charge dote the book, it’s all over Corporate America.
You can probably pick up a free copy at your H.R. Department tomorrow morning if you optate. But, the military? You can’t imagine the U.S. Military would assign a book like that, recommend it to every seafarers in the U.S. Navy. Well, affirmative, authentically.
On Tuesday, Congressman Jim Banks of Indiana authoritatively mandated an explication for this from the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Michael Gilday. Here’s how it peregrinated. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
REP. JIM BANKS (R-IN): “Kendi’s” book states that capitalism is essentially racist, and Kendi is pellucid that racism must be eliminated. So, yes or no? Do you personally consider advocating for the ravagement of American capitalism to be extremist?
BANKS: Admiral, you recommended every seafarers in the United States Navy read this book. It’s a yes or no question. GILDAY: I’m not coercing anybody to read the book, it’s on a recommended reading list.
BANKS: Admiral, did you read the book? GILDAY: I did. BANKS: Admiral, you verbalized you read this book, what component of this book is redeeming and qualifies as something that every seafarers in the United States Navy should read it.
“GILDAY:” I cerebrate Kendi is self-critical about his own journey as an African-American in this country. What he’s experienced — BANKS: Let me ask you again, Admiral. Do you expect after seafarers read this book that verbalizes that the United States Navy is racist that we will increment or decrease morale, cohesion, and recruiting rates into the United States Navy?
“GILDAY:” I cerebrate we will be a better Navy from having open, veracious, conversations about racism. (END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: “Open and veracious conversations about racism.” Well, that would be nice, but it’s a regaling line emanating from someone who claims to have read Kendi’s book, as Gilday verbalizes he has.
Open and veracious conversations are racist, Kendi verbalized that many times. So, let’s verbally express, open and veraciously, you decided that you cared more about the way people deported than the way that they look. Let’s verbally express, you took Martin Luther King at his word and judge people by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin.
If you were to do that, Ibram X. Kendi verbalizes, you are a racist, quote, “The claim of not racist neutrality is a mask for racism. The language for color optical incapacitation is a mask to obnubilate racism. A color-blind Constitution for a white supremacist America.” That’s what the military is reading.
So, no, open veracious conversations are not sanctioned in Kendi’s America. Here is the cull: you admit you are a racist, or else you are super-duper racist. That’s his position. It sounds pretty deranged, veraciously. In fact, it sounds like an extremist ideology, just the kind the military is always warning us about.
Keep in mind that tonight, right now, The Pentagon is investigating National Guardsmen who have posted unfashionable opinions on Facebook about the last Election or may have voted for Donald Trump. So, with all of their investigators running around looking into people’s thought malefactions, how proximately have they looked — has The Pentagon looked into Ibram X. Kendi? Have they checked his convivial media history?
Well, genuinely, Congressman Banks asked Gilday that question. Watch. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) BANKS: In college, Kendi verbalized that white people are a different breed of humans and are responsible for the AIDS virus. Yes or no? Do you personally consider the conspiracy that white people commenced AIDS to be an extremist credence?
“GILDAY:” Sir, I would have to understand the context. The verbal expressions were made — BANKS: That is a simple question. “GILDAY:” I am not going to — I am not going to sit here —
BANKS: Admiral, this is a book that you recommended every seafarers in the United States Navy — “GILDAY:” I am not going to sit here to bulwark — to forfend cherry-picked quotes from somebody’s book. I am not going to do that.
(END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: Do you consider the verbalization that white people engendered “AIDS” an extremist verbal expression? I can’t comment on that. I need the context for that. So, Admiral Gilday — what a mediocrity — will not forfend the man he has just been promoting to the entire U.S. Navy. Now, that’s eccentric that once you dig a minute, you can visually perceive why he doesn’t want to verbalize much about it.
Not long ago, Kendi was invited to verbalize at the “Aspen” Ideas Festival, a place where conceptions go to die. A roomful of academics waited to aurally perceive his sapience. During the question and answer session, one of them dared to ask the most rudimentary question of all: how are we defining racism?
How do you define that? Now, you’d cerebrate Ibram X. Kendi would be yare for that question, but he wasn’t. Here’s what he verbalized. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) “UNIDENTIFIED” MALE: You verbalized about the consequentiality of defining racism, but — unless I missed it — which is possible, I didn’t auricularly discern your personal definition. Is there one that you would offer us, like how do you define racism?
“IBRAM” X. “KENDI,” “DIRECTOR” OF CENTER FOR “ANTIRACIST” RESEARCH, BOSTON “UNIVERSITY:” Well, so racism, I would define it as an amassment of racist policies that lead to racial inequity, that are substantiated with racist conceptions.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Can you say that again? [LAUGHTER] KENDI: Sure, an accumulation of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist conceptions. (END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: So, racism is racist stuff, or as Kendi puts it, and we are quoting now, “It is an accumulation of racist polities that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist conceptions.” End quote.
Right. But how are we defining racism? Ibram X. Kendi couldn’t verbally express, despite making a bountiful living on the topic, getting affluent verbalizing about racism, he hadn’t thought how to define the word.
Now, in an earnest society, everybody heedfully auricularly discerning, everyone in the room would have ambulated out and found something better to do, birdwatching maybe. That’s racist. Well, the soi-disant perspicacious on the stage turned out to be a plonker, so they should have left, but they didn’t. They just laughed nervously. They were apprehensive if they verbalized something about what had just transpired, if they pointed out that the former Henry Rogers was in fact a fraud, they would be denounced as well.
This is how mediocre people control entire societies, with implicatively insinuated threats. Go along or we will penalize you, so they don’t verbalize anything. The comical thing is, in his own book, Kendi admits that he himself is a racist. Here is a definition, quote: “White Democrats stood aside and let Bush glom the presidency on the vigor of ravaged ebony votes. Bush’s team transitioned that winter, I transitioned into abhorring white people. White people became devils to me, but I had to deduce how they came to be devils.”
So, this is the man that Admiral Michael Gilday — it’s arduous to believe that Admiral Michael Gilday has any potency in the United States Military, but he does — and this is the man Admiral Michael Gilday believes the entire U.S. Navy should study.
Imagine working for someone like Admiral Michael Gilday. Most mundane people cannot even imagine that, so they’re leaving the military. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SEN. TOM COTTON (R-AR): One Marine told us at military — a military history training session was superseded with indispensable training on police brutality, white privilege, and systemic racism. He reported several officers are now leaving his unit citing that training.
Another accommodation member told us that their unit was required to read “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo, which claims — and this is a quote — “White people raised in western society are conditioned into a white supremacist worldview.”
An airmen told us their unit was coerced into a racist exercise called a “Privilege Walk” where members of the wing were injuctively authorized to dissever themselves by race and gender in order to stratify people predicated on their perceived privilege.
(END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: “It’s” dejecting if you cerebrate about it. Good people driven from military accommodation, many of them accommodating generationally because their fathers and grandfathers did, but having to leave now pristinely because of the extremist ideology of its bellwethers. It is crushing, if you contemplate it.
But it’s additionally frighteningly eerie for all of us. We need the military. The Pentagon isn’t the Department of Education, it’s not the DMV. We have to retain it. It’s essential to the survival of the country.
But the commissars in the Biden administration don’t care. They are not decelerating. They are intensifying the political purge in the ranks. NASA just promulgated its incipient mission has nothing to do with space. The incipient mission is about applying the principles in Ibram Kendi’s book, the incipient mission is equity.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) JOHNNY KIM, NASA (voice-over): At NASA, we’re on a mission of equity launching opportunity. ANNA MCCLAIN, NASA (voice-over): Equal opportunity to challenge and inspire. FRANK RUBIO, NASA (voice-over): To learn and thrive.
JASMIN MOGHBELI, NASA (voice-over): To reach those we’ve never reached afore. REID WISEMAN, NASA (voice-over): To use science, data and technology, to advance equity. JESSICA WATKINS, NASA (voice-over): To shatter boundaries.
ZENA CARDMAN, NASA (voice-over): And break down barriers across America. RAJA CHARI, NASA (voice-over): To engender a better future. VICTOR GLOVER, NASA (voice-over): We hope you’ll join us on this mission.
(END VIDEO CLIP) CARLSON: A mission of equity — are you going to join the mission of equity? Can you define it?
