Military Adopting Radical Indoctrination Backfiring As New Recruit Numbers Slump

America is in the grip of a labor shortage, and it seems the U.S. military is no exception, as it struggles to recruit new personnel under the leadership of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, despite the offer of free sex changes and training in critical race theory.

From NBC News, “Every branch of the U.S. military is struggling to meet its 2022 recruiting goals, officials say”:

Every branch of the U.S. military is struggling to meet its fiscal year 2022 recruiting goals, say multiple U.S. military and defense officials, and numbers obtained by NBC News show both a record low percentage of young Americans eligible to serve and an even tinier fraction willing to consider it.

The officials said the Pentagon’s top leaders are now scrambling for ways to find new recruits to fill out the ranks of the all-volunteer force. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks consider the shortfall a serious issue, said the officials, and have been meeting on it frequently with other leaders.

“This is the start of a long drought for military recruiting,” said Ret. Lt. Gen. Thomas Spoehr of the Heritage Foundation, a think tank. He said the military has not had such a hard time signing recruits since 1973, the year the U.S. left Vietnam and the draft officially ended. Spoehr said he does not believe a revival of the draft is imminent, but “2022 is the year we question the sustainability of the all-volunteer force.”

The pool of those eligible to join the military continues to shrink, with more young men and women than ever disqualified for obesity, drug use or criminal records. Last month, Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville testified before Congress that only 23% of Americans ages 17-24 are qualified to serve without a waiver to join, down from 29% in recent years.

An internal Defense Department survey obtained by NBC News found that only 9% of those young Americans eligible to serve in the military had any inclination to do so, the lowest number since 2007.

[…] Overall confidence in U.S. government institutions is also decreasing, and that has hit the U.S. military as well. In 2021 the annual Reagan National Defense Survey, conducted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, found that just 45% of Americans had a great deal of trust and confidence in the military, down 25 points since 2018.

The Defense Secretary, who is a former Raytheon board member, is such a radical, that during his confirmation hearing, he pledged to “purge” the armed forces of supposed “racists” who hold “extremist” views, describing them as “enemies” who “lie within our own ranks.”

Those military members who refuse to take the covid shot, are also going to be fired and this amounts to over 40,000 troops.

Austin believes that “Trans rights are human rights,” and offered free sex reassignment surgeries for troops who were confused about what gender they want to be.

Apparently, under Austin’s watch, the DoD began teaching recruits that “whites are inherently evil,” according to former Space Force Commander Matthew Lohmeier, who was fired for speaking out about the radical beliefs that are infiltrating the military.

“There were videos being sent out to every base, service member, that we were asked to watch in preparation for our extremism down days and discussions on race in which we were taught that the country was evil, that it was founded in 1619 and not 1776, and that whites are inherently evil,” Lt. Col. Lohmeier said.

  1. Let’s start with the advantages of joining the military. Not many, it seems. There are some benefits for education, medical care (kind of), and loans for housing, but do they offset poor pay, often poor working conditions, and very limited freedoms for two or more years? Apparently, a lot of the young don’t think so. The U.S. military does more for the world than any other single nation, so why don’t we cash in on it? NATO nations are supposed to put forth two percent of their GDP for military, so the rest of the world can call on them as needed to preserve freedom. Out of the 30 NATO nations, only eight have hit or exceeded that 2% mark. Maybe it’s time for the U.S. to demand that all nations hit or exceed that 2%, but give it all to the U.S. to pay for our military protecting the rest of the world. Once we have support from other nations, we could pay our soldiers well enough that it would compete with other jobs. More young people, facing the requirement of a college degree for a decent job, might opt to make a decent living in the Army, then go on to use their benefits to get a degree after they are honorably discharged.

  2. I spent 7 years in Air Force, honorable discharge, I have spent over 30 years trying to get the US MILITARY AND VA to fix my ossues they created. I am deaf, i am bipolar and PTSD. They have denied me since 1992, when I got out.
    Fuck the military and all the ppl running this country into the ground.
    Do not blame the recruits, blame the democraps.

  3. when the commander in chief is no longer a doddering idiot trying his best to start world war 3, perhaps new recruits will come forward. hopefully, we will have recruits who are not looking for paid sex reassignment.



    One never knows who’s beside them in a trench and as long as they’re firing their weapon, all is good.
    One can be whoever, whatever they choose to be, but don’t ask the rest of us to pay for the decisions you make…
    The military and all control freaks need to meet the challenge(s) at hand. That’s all. We side with the Lord and don’t require a direction from anyone else…

  7. What does biden and his military man expect, All the militaries have a majority of European types and the first lesson they get is being told all whites are bad, racist, oppressors and the country they are defending is bad, racist, worst than any other country in the world and yet they are suppose to die for this country. How lovely. And perhaps biden and his military man are doing this deliberately to make sure this country has a military that cannot defend us. Communists as in Russia and China tear down a country first so communists can take over a country before the population knows what hit them.

  8. Our Nation is being run by IDIOTS — especially the incompetent one in the “Where Am I House”!! Without a strong leader that is inspiring and INTELLIGENT, there is no Inspiration for any of our Military personnel to BE THE BEST THEY CAN OR DO THE BEST THEY CAN!

    Instead some Military Jerk off Officer decided to push the Ignorant WOKE IDEOLOGIES on the people who fight for our Freedoms! OMG! Would some big hunkin Military Officer find who is responsible for that idiocy and strip them of rank while kicking their ugly stupid butts out of our Military? PLEASE!

    No Military personnel needs to worry over that Wokeism crap when they are out fighting our battles…ever! Military personnel need their minds 100% on the fight scene, NOT WORRYING ABOUT SOME RECRUIT WHO CAN’T FIGURE OUT IF THEY ARE A MALE OR FEMALE. AND NOT THE BIOLOGICAL BODY THEY WERE BORN WITH! OMG! Kick that misguided POS out of our Military and forbid any recruit from ever questioning that issue. NO military person needs to worry about that wokeism because, sorry, it is just more CRAP PUSHED BY THE DEMONIC PARTY AND THEIR GOAT IN THE WHITE HOUSE!

    TIME TO WAKE UP ALL GOOD SANE PEOPLE OF AMERICA AND DEMAND THE LEFTIST DISTURBED AND HIGHLY IGNORANT DEM POLITICAL PARTY VACATE D.C. NOW while we still have a chance to save our Nation! Wake. Up or watch the stupid ignorant Dems destroy our great nation! They are working HARD on destroying our Military right now!

  9. WAKE UP AMERICANS! America is being slowly choked and if people do not stand up for their Constitutional Rights and PUSH BACK, WE ARE GOING TO LOSE OUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY.

    THE DELUDED AND HIGHLY IGNORANT DEMOCRAT PARTY WANTS TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY AND WHAT IT STANDS FOR! IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO? Think about what is happening to our Military and our children’s educations! Both of these areas are being transformed into a bunch of Leftist Ignoramuses because why? Because if people are dumbed down or confused, they are easier to exploit. THINK ABOUT THIS NOW — NOT TOMORROW!
    Parents finally have wised up and now are removing their kids from the BRAINWASHING LEFTIST PUBLIC SCHOOLS and enrolling them in private charter schools so THEY WILL LEARN SURVIVAL SKILLS, NOT JUST BE BRAINWASHED WITH LEFTIST IGNORANT IDEOLOGIES. NOW WE NEED TO FORCE OUR MILITARY TO KICK OUT THE WOKEISMS AND CONCENTRATE ON MAKING GOOD, STRONG MILITARY PERSONNEL! We must stand up to the clueless in D.C. and save our Military! We can do this…WE MUST DO THIS!

    Write your Congressmen and Senators about removing the Woke from our Military! FAX them, email them, snail mail them, but CONTACT THEM WITH THOUSANDS OF LETTERS UNTIL THEY UNDERSTAND WE IN AMERICA HAVE A HUGE ISSUE THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED!


  10. I spent more than 20 years in the Air Force, along with millions of other men and women who served in out Armed Forces. I was in combat during two wars and two contingenceis, and fought our enemies using the best aircraft in the world, and also some of the best combat leaders. Not all generals are good leaders. Take Austin for one. A good military leader insures his men or women have what it takes to protect our Nation and fight for it when necessary. I fought alongside blacks, whites, browns, and yellows, and the color of their skin didn’t matter – we were all in a family taking care of each other to ensure we kicked the enemy’s asses hard. When flying a mission into or over enemy territory, the color of my wing man didn’t make a rats ass. None of us ever lost our damned minds to consider changing sex to comply with absolutely stupid people who want to join a society of people who have no idea of who they are, where they are going, what they are going to do twhen they arrive at the place they don’t know it is, ane whether or not they are ever going to become a parent. Our National e4ducation system has hit rock bottom of the universe. The educational curriculum is taught by so called educators who are communists in sheep’s clothing. These leeches prey on young kid’s mentality until the kids no longer are capable of doing a damned thing for themselves – everything must be handed to them on a silver platter. I could see this happening in the 1960s, and made damned well certain that my kids went to school to get an education – not become an insipient do nothing like so many millions of our citizens of today. All veterans today are proud to stand and say they performed their military duty with honor. I shudder to think what our military leaders of today would do if we were suddenly involved inn a war. Would they first wonder if they were male or female, or whether they should say real names or woke pronouns, or if they have to load a weapon before they pulled the trigger or does that happen automatically. The military forces must be cleansed of the woke crap the SecDef and his puppets now stress, and rebuild our military might to convince our potential enemies they should not be ignorant eneough to prevoke the USA.

  11. The enemies of jobama soros are their friends. We’re “progressing” from having the world’s most lethal military to a “force” that is likely to harm you with their purse than with a weapon. Just don’t misgender them ot use the wrong pronouns. Remember obama’s dream of a “domestic army.?” Well, have you been paying attention to the mass of recruits invading via the southern border?

  12. it is amazing how one idiot can screw up a wonderful country so quickly/it has to be permitted to say joe bidumb is the dumbest moron in politics

  13. As a 22 year Air Force veteran I was recommending young people to pursue a career in the military. However based on the demonstrated incompetence of senior leadership since the debacle in Afghanistan and their “woke training agenda” and rhetoric of alleged enemies in the ranks I no longer recommend joining the military under this leadership. I simply tell them it’s not for everyone, do your research and make your own decision.

  14. Progressives/Socialists are seemingly abounding in compassion but abandoned in wisdom. To say white people are inherently, intrinsically, and irredeemably racist is as
    illogical as it is racist. I believe we are supposed to be one nation under God. Yet Critical Race Theory represents the selective use of history to vindicate an unworthy
    hypothesis, that all are not alike unto God. We are to be judged and arranged by skin color. It is the antithesis of Christian theology. CRT involves overplayed racial shamming
    in the name of sensitivity training and the simplistic demonization of America. It is illogical to suppose that we will overcome the last remnants of prejudice by promoting a theory of blatant discrimination promoted by ego elites.

  15. The USA must have new Leadership in this Country fast
    as a large part of our Military cannot function as they are
    Supposed too. And our people telling others what to do,
    want to destroy America. May God have Mercy on the USA.
    Our leaders want us in War with China now.

  16. The TRAITOR Chief of Staff General Milley, can accept the blame for the destruction of the United States of America MILITARY.
    He alone holds the responsibility for the decay of our Branches of the Military.
    Milley should be Court Martialed and then imprisoned for his TREASONOUS actions..

  17. Indoctrination into “Woke” “White Man Is Privileged and Racist” and the rest of the “CRT” horse crap is detrimental to our Nation. Telling our troops that our Nation is “evil” is even worse. This fits into a direct action that is Seditious, Insurrectionist, and Traitorous; the perpetrators of indoctrination of this program should be charged accordingly and prosecuted to the full extent allowed by the UCMJ. I was an E-5 and spent six years in the service and I can tell you that If I had spread such indoctrination, I would have been spending time in Leavenworth at hard labor.

  18. WHY isn’t it OBVIOUS???? We have decided NOT to do things GOD”S WAY. SOOO we cannot expect HIs blessing!!! Believe it or NOT = President Reagan “hit the nail on the head when he said, “IF WE EVER FORGET THAT WE ARE ONE (united) NATION U N D E R GOD (and HIS rules,} WE WILL BE ONE NATION GONE UNDER” We had better WAKE UP and face the facts!!
