Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military

This is LITERALLY a headline from the U.S. Dept of Defense website. It reads like a Buzzfeed or Twitchy headline. So leads Weasel Zippers headline. I am glad we can “smite” something even if its justTucker Carlson. Don’t comment about the Biden administration or its policies. Got it?

There has been quite a kerfuffle over Tucker Carlson’s program which I covered.

Joe Biden and his China strategy – feminize the U.S. military

It’s important that pregnant women are able to drop into enemy territory. Imagine a pregnant woman pilot with air sickness. Imagine a pregnant American woman captured by an enemy.

Imagine Joe Biden is President.

With that the Pentagon strikes back with this:

The United States military is the greatest the world has ever seen because of its diversity, Pentagon Press Secretary John F. Kirby said during a news briefing this morning.

Kirby addressed this because a Fox cable show host used his show to denigrate the contributions of women in the military and to say the Chinese military is catching up to the U.S. military because it does not allow women to serve in the percentage the United States does.

Kirby addressed the insults to the entire U.S. military straight on. “I want to be very clear right up front, that the diversity of our military is one of our greatest strengths,” he said. “I’ve seen it for myself in long months at sea and in the combat waged by our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. I’ve seen it up on Capitol Hill just this past month. And I see it every day here right at the Pentagon.”

No job in the military is barred to women, the press secretary noted. They fly jets, fight in infantry squads, drive tanks, command warships and soon to lead combatant commands — President Joe Biden has nominated Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost to command U.S. Transportation Command and Army Lt. Gen. Laura Richardson to command U.S. Southern Command.

“To be sure, we still have a lot of work to do to make our military more inclusive, more respectful of everyone, especially women,” Kirby said.

There is a lack of women at senior ranks, Kirby said. “We pledge to do better, and we will,” he said. “What we absolutely won’t do is take personnel advice from a talk show host or the Chinese military. Maybe those folks feel like they have something to prove — that’s on them. We know we’re the greatest military in the world today and even for all the things we need to improve, we know exactly why that’s so.”

I am sure all the tranny’s that now will be able to have their surgeries thanks to the U.S. taxpayer will fill out our military to its finest level.

The best of the swamp today.

    I happen to respect General Jack Keene and it was positively horrid listening to him on FOX yesterday talking about how the Chinese navy could beat ours handily….As he said “the ships on the West coast would take five weeks….” Not sure why Trump so often said our military was still so far ahead of all others because I don’t think so anymore.
    So, yes, does anybody think the Chinese have pregnant women in their armed services?
    Or women on submarines?
    Of course not. They care about their country.

      The days of ships exchanging broadsides are long gone, Z. Today’s sea battles will take place hundreds or possibly thousands of miles separating belligerents. Given the modern cost of fleets, no one should be surprised if the exchange were to go nuclear within short order.

        I believe all future wars will include very few ships or people (they’re talking robot soldiers in the future) very soon but probably not soon enough; not in time for what China’s doing now. And let’s not forget they know the same information we do about ourselves; NOW, we’re stuck with sea battles with ships on the West coast unable to arrive any time soon. I do appreciate Keane’s background and knowledge and I know his reputation among Conservatives that he’s a war monger, too. Still would like to know who agrees that it’s curious Trump was so proud of our military and how ready we are, that we’re so far ahead of China. Was he lied to? He was the one who bombed Syria, which I ALWAYS thought was wrong….ALWAYS felt that Assad was not doing what we’d accused him off. Odd, but true….And now we’re hearing evidence that no chemicals were used against his own people. THese times are a bit too interesting for me!! But, I am all for listening to all sides ….
        I remain steadfast to my belief the Chinese are not spending money developing pregnancy flight suits and welcoming unwanted pregnancies resulting from women on subs.
        China’s spending money figuring out how they can vanquish us.

        If I were to guess it will be some picayune country with some wacko dictator who will start the big one… the reason for a big time military to scare the cr** out of them not to tinker with us… that is how they usually start… just a gobble here or there….

      Jack Keene and his fellow neo-cons never met a war they didn’t like. Try the institute for the study of war with his BFF Liz Cheney.

    A kid asks his father about the war. “Well, we lost the war,” his dad says, “but every guy in the battalion got laid, and every girl in the battalion got a baby, so we didn’t much care about the war.”


  4. Mustang Says:

    Gutting the US military by recruiting, training, promoting females for no other reason than to increase the number of females by rank and MOS is no more than affirmative action (social engineering) on steroids. I can say that the women I served with in the Marines were consummate professionals, around 99% of whom had NO desire to serve in the combat arms.

    Showing genuine concern for women in uniform is not an example of disrespecting our women or the military establishment, but I will say that what does demonstrate disrespect is placing women into hostile environments where they may fail in the most horrific way possible, and at the very least, cause long-term damage to their health and well-being. What the Biden administration is doing now is disrespectful — to both women in uniform AND womanhood. The stupid part is that we don’t have to give up either — we simply have to acknowledge that there are some things women do extremely well and some things that are better left to men.

    Biden demonstrates that he is a piss-poor leader and doesn’t deserve the title Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. Biden is destroying America and doing so with the blessings of most of the American people. Were that not so, Trump would still be in the White House.

      I think much of it is to constantly have us disturbed and promote discord. Good points Mustang. I have had women friends who entered the military and had a wonderful experience and got themselves off to a great start in life. They had zero interest in combat and were in intelligence. Later moved on to the private sector and made super big bucks.
      They had families and were well accommodated.

    “Diversity is one of our greatest strengths?” Try sprinting out a diverse team of trans/gay/whatever against a column of tanks and see where that gets you.

    It seems that the secretary is drawing more from the Democrat talking points than anyone’s experience.

    Talk to the senior enlisted. They are leaving daily rather than endure the insanity.
    Force Readiness is no longer the driving force. Diversity is, in the hopes that Force Readiness will follow.
    That exposes the tip of the spear to death and destruction.

      No doubt the same as they want to do to the police. All these National Guard in D.C. Civilians with families and business and work responsibilities. How long will they stay in the guard when this is how it ends up?

    Sorry, the press secretary did not come close to smiting Tucker. Not even a slap or a real slam.

    Cho Bai Dung wants “all hairstyles” accepted by the military … which, I presume would include those awful “man buns”. Can you envision a low-ranking officer with one of those?
