Under the Biden regime, the military has declined at an alarming rate due to his ridiculous vaccine mandates – which are forcing service members to leave.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued Biden’s order in August last year and the military branch suffering the most, is the U.S Marine Corps.
Many believe that the vaccine mandates are being used to undermine the strength of the U.S military, by forcing out the conservative and patriotic members.
169 Marines have been discharged from service for refusing the experimental gene therapy, according to Fox News Digital. Thousands more are set to meet the same fate after the mandate took effect on November 28, for all active-duty service members in the USMC.
Initially service members were told they would be able to refuse the clot-shot under religious exemption, but as yet, not a single exemption has been approved.
Several Marines who spoke with Fox News Digital, said they believe this is pure politics and the service “is being crushed by the mandate,” – this has the potential to pose a huge national security risk.
A major with 17 years of active service, told the network:
“There’s something fundamentally wrong at this point with our nation’s leadership,” a major with more than 17 years of active service told the network. “We are facing an unconstitutional edict that I think is very targeted as a political purge, taking out some of the best and brightest soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and guardians from the Space Force.”
A Lieutenant colonel, who has been an active service member for over 19 years, said that the military is trying to discharge Marines “as fast as they can and as brutally as they can, damaging every Marine as much as they can on the way out.”
“The one message I got from the colonel above me was: ‘Tread very carefully, this is political, you will be crushed like an ant.’ And he told me that because he cares about me,” the lieutenant colonel told the network. “Do I want to continue serving in an institution that crushes people for bringing up reasonable points in defending their faith?,” he questioned.
A master sergeant said if he speaks up against the mandates, the more difficult his life is made, saying, “The louder I speak the tighter the screws are turned against me.”
He added that morally he can’t just follow orders and feels it’s his duty to speak up.
“When you’re expected to behave a certain way and to obey certain rules and follow certain processes, and then to see on the other end that that’s not a two-way street, that’s a violation of my morals that I can’t stand by and not speak out about,” the master sergeant added.
According to Fox News, Marines who were rejected from religious exemption were all told that they were denied due to “military readiness.”
Obviously this doesn’t make much sense when they (the Biden regime) are discharging members by the thousands for not taking an experimental gene therapy that they probably don’t need anyway.
“I saw one package from a sergeant who had attached, like, 30 pages of material to substantiate why his belief was sincere, under no lawful obligation to do so,” said the master sergeant. “And then to have this as a response with no individual inquiry and just a generalized assertion of governmental interest is insulting.”
“On the religious side, this is absolutely a travesty what’s happening,” a chief warrant officer noted. “People are getting blanket denials, they’re not addressing the individual concerns or beliefs of Marines who are submitting for religious accommodations, and I think that’s just horribly wrong. I honestly believe that they’re not really reading the packages.”
The Biden regime is actively working against the interests of the United States, weakening its military might, to allow China to intimidate and strong arm the rest of the world unabated.
