With global instability getting worse by the day, America’s military is more critical than ever.
But it’s also struggling under the weight of leftist expectations.
And Joe Biden’s Secretary of Defense landed in hot water after this woke military mishap.
One of the Biden Regime’s latest experiments to inject woke values into the military just went up in smoke.
According to documents the Daily Caller got its hands on, the US Air Force has been forced to give up on a scheme to greatly increase the number of female and minority pilots.
Under Biden’s leadership, the military has been nearly as distracted by Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives as the most woke Silicon Valley tech companies.
And the results threaten to be nothing short of disastrous.
It seems the obsession to play with quotas rather than focus on the bigger mission led the 19th Air Force Command near San Antonio, Texas to create something they called “America’s Class.”
They were hoping to improve the odds of graduating for women trainees along with those representing racial minorities.
But that effort bombed.
AF whistleblowers sound the alarm on safety concerns
Despite being “hand-picked for excellence,” the military effort failed to increase the success rates of class members.
It also left officers questioning whether they were forced to engage in illegal discrimination since they were forced to exclude white males from the class.
“We have been verbally ordered through the chain of command by the 19AF/CC [19th Air Force commander] to purposefully restructure the students assigned to [SUPT] class 21-15 to meet specific racial and gender demographics,” two officers revealed in a memo.
And it certainly functioned as a dangerous distraction from the mission.
“When other priorities, like gender or race, are introduced as a metric of assignment and advancement, the foundations of performance-based competition are sacrificed and the emphasis on safety takes a backseat,” an Air Force instructor pilot and former trainer told the Daily Caller.
Officers documented their concerns in a memo after being informed by the branch’s “equal opportunity” office that the discrimination was legal.
“None of the parties signed below agree with the order from an ethical standpoint,” they wrote. “SUPT class structures have never been based on a minimum quota for a student’s race or gender, and the message this sends to students and future students is harmful.”
In a conversation with the Daily Caller one of the memo authors explained, “Each and every USAF pilot training class is America’s Class.”
The Left’s racist roots are becoming more obvious than ever before.
