Fundamental Change Equals Rotting from the Head

| February 17, 2013

A buddy out in Guam sent me this link to an article at outlining the Navy Department’s new “21st Century Sailor and Marine Program.” Go here and read it for yourself:

Navy’s New Plan to Halt Re-enlistment

Reading this steaming pile of cockamamie, liberal do-goody BS, then factoring in departing SecDef Panetta’s recent elimination of DADT and the latest announcement about including women in infantry and special ops, one can only wonder if there is a deliberate, multi-pronged assault under way to impose political correctness on our entire military system from top to bottom by the Obama Administration. After all, Obama did tell us he intended to change this country fundamentally; what he didn’t say was that he was going to start with the military.

But it makes sense when you consider that the military, led as it now is by a disgraceful bunch of politically-correct, perfumed princes of the Pentagon, General Dumpster being the most notable of them, is the largest segment of the American populace that is helpless to resist even the most ridiculous of these liberal social experiments. Regardless of how foolish a new Obama-mandated policy may be, service members must comply under penalty of less than honorable discharge or even imprisonment. Those currently serving can only resist by beating feet from the service, thus leaving their positions to be filled by those who too-willingly submit to such political thought control, giving Obama the manipulable military he desires. Since Obama hasn’t been able to carry out his plan for a civilian security force as large as and as well-funded as the military, perhaps he’s decided on a different tactic.

Consider that for a moment then ask yourself, “Could the Obama administration be reforming the military into a compliant, politically-correct weapon to be used to enforce further, unpopular, fundamental change on the nation as a whole? The question has always been, would American forces fire on their own people in the event of a government versus the citizens confrontation. If you then couple that thought to the current federal gun grabbing campaign, seeking to disarm those who most oppose them, suddenly, the political odor wafting from this White House is beginning to take on the reek of something very, very, unconstitutionally rotten.

We’ve all heard that proverb of the fish rotting from the head down. Well, so does a nation, which is precisely why our founding fathers gave us a Bill of Rights, to protect us from such internal political rot. Isn’t it just so amazing that who the liberals disparagingly characterize as a bunch of old rich white men had the foresight to anticipate just what sort of treachery these socialist usurpers of our basic freedoms might attempt some few hundred years in the future.

I’d say those old white guys were a bunch of very wise old men.

    I suggest we all continue to stockpile ammunition in military calibers and practice headshots.

  2. valerie says:

    What you are telling me is that the Obama administration is following the Saddam Hussein model for “reforming” the officer corps.

    How well did that work for him?

  3. UpNorth says:

    Reading some of that tripe, I wonder, when did Moooochelle get inserted into the chain of command? What’s next, arugula for everyone?

  4. A Proud Infidel says:

    January 20, 2009, the beginning of the B. Hussein 0bama curse!

    So many Academy grads.

    Be easier to get rid of ROTC, OCS and battlefield commissioning. It’s academia’s and the Academies wettest dream.

    You can sorta kinda make change from the top, but it’s best to make changes at the very bottom, very beginning of a career.

  6. A Proud Infidel says:

    I have to disagree with getting rid of OCS, I’ve served under some damn good Officers that came from there.

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    Well, that explains why the Norks recently did another underground nuke test last week, and the Russian air force was seen recently (2-15-2013) flying TU-95 Bears with nuke-tipped cruise missiles around Guam.

  8. DaveO says:

    #6 I disagree with it too, but it the services won’t risk another Boorda making it to the top. If one wants to fundamentally change the officer corps, use the Academies – the cadets and midshipment require nomination (political vetting) by congresscritters. Get rid of the MOH and legacy way of entering, and one can have solid cadres of politically reliable officers.

    You can’t get that from OCS or ROTC – too high a risk of free-thinking, innovation, and competence.

    I remember one of my old Skippers was a serious Born Again Christian. How do you think he would rule on a BAC? One of the first CO’s to Mast a guy for a DUI after the civilain courts were done with them. The article and some of the comments also mention that the Navy must not want Chiefs anymore. The are not making REAL Chiefs anymore. They are pumping out JV button pushers who will not know how to train JO’s or Junior Troops in leadership, heritage, or Naval culture. They are getting rid of everybody who will remember what it is supposed to be like, and replace them with people who will think this is the way it has always been.

    My husband retired because he saw the writing on the wall. He watched the DADT repeal and the fact that they made up the “survey” and decided to retire. It wasn’t because he didn’t want to serve with those “icky gays;” we all know they were already there. He knew that this admin would use special interest groups as a way of undermining the mission. My husband figured he went through all this during the Clinton years and Clinton was never an ideologue. He was only ever out for himself and governed by the polls. Obama is an ideologue straight up, and we both knew that it was going to turn bad; the funding, the social experiments, the budget etc.

    I didn’t want to jump on the conspiracy theory band wagon, but I truly think they are trying to destroy the military.

    Before it fell apart the Soviet Union planted a bomb in the 1960s, it’s exploding now. They infiltrated the universities, whose graduates started controlling the media, then running for political office and teaching our youth. It was only a matter of time before the effects hit the Law enforcement and Military communities.

    What a bunch of crap. I keep telling my wife I miss the Marine Corps, but it ain’t the same Corps, so there’s nothing to miss I suppose.
