The United States of America will never win a war again. [Army aggressively working to eliminate extremism, says chief diversity officer, Army.Mil., March 12, 2021]:

WASHINGTON — As the Army continues efforts to improve diversity within its ranks, it is also reinforcing policies to eradicate extremist behaviors and activities.

The battle against extremism is different from other challenges the Army encounters, said Col. Timothy Holman, the Army’s chief diversity officer. Extremism can tear apart cohesive teams.

For the colonel, the fight against extremism is one he personally encountered. His aim is clear: do what he can to help open a path for future Army leaders and make the force as diverse as the nation it defends.

“My hope is to ensure better representation of our country among the senior ranks,” he said.

As a child in Mississippi during the early 1960s, Holman, an African-American, witnessed the tail-end of an era plagued by racially-motivated murders based on skin color. People such as Emmett Till in 1955; Medgar Evers in 1963; Vernon Dahmer in 1966; and others whose names history may never know, were all killed in areas near Holman’s hometown.

“Growing up in a little bitty segregated Mississippi town, it was not uncommon for people to call you derogatory terms, and nothing would happen [to them],” he said. “It was a place where people said, ‘hey, you can’t come to this side of town after dark because of the color of your skin.’”

Clear-cut rules

The Army’s policy bans all personnel from participating in extremist organizations and activities, Holman said. Organizations and activities in which personnel are prohibited from participating include those that advocate, among other things: racial intolerance or discrimination; use of force to deprive individuals of their constitutional rights; and advocating or teaching the overthrow of the U.S. government.

Prohibited actions in support of extremist organizations or activities include, but are not limited to, participating in a public demonstration or rally; attending a meeting or activity with knowledge that it involves an extremist cause; fundraising; and recruiting, training, or organizing members of extremist organizations.

In other words, extremism in any form has no place in the military, the colonel said.

Ideally, extremism would not exist anywhere, but Holman is very familiar with extremism after growing up in rural Mississippi during the civil rights movement.

For two decades, he endured unmistakable racism. He feared things others may take for granted, like walking through certain areas after certain hours.

Steps in the right direction

As part of the Project Inclusion initiative, Army leaders initiated a listening tour, titled “Your Voice Matters,” which aims to cultivate a culture built on trust, Holman said.

During the listening tour, Army leaders take note of the concerns pertaining to “racism,

, equity, inclusion, extremism, quality of life, whatever Soldiers have on their minds,” Holman said.

Project Inclusion, which began during the summer, is an effort to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion across the force while building cohesive teams. “This holistic effort will listen to Soldiers and Army civilians, and identify any practices that inadvertently discriminate,” he said.

Extremism has frequently been a topic of discussion during the “Your Voice Matters” listening sessions, which are sometimes held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. It is a topic from which the diversity chief does not shy away.

“We have to [address] these issues, move toward diversity, and understand how people who might join the Army with extremist views are redirected,” he said. “It’s in line with what Army Chief of Staff Gen. James C. McConville said, ‘people first.’”

Modernization is critical; however, the Army’s people will operate the equipment and make it work, Holman said. If the psychological safety of a fighting force prevents it from being its best, then the mission will fail.

ORDER IT NOW

“When the chief of staff touts ‘people first,’ that is reflected in eradication of any extremism within the ranks,” he said. “Extremism will only limit or prohibit building the cohesive teams the Army needs. If that’s the case, it doesn’t matter how good your equipment is, if the soul of the force isn’t operating at an optimal level.”

The Army has as a chief diversity officer?

Our nation has no chance in a 21st century war, when diversity is our most important goal to aspire to achieve, when such an achievement is a complete repudiation of the concept of nation and unity.

    He was OSS and US Army Intelligence, the Detroit News featured him 20 or 30 years ago. Called him “A living history lesson”. After the war he resumed his practice in SW Detroit. At Junction and Vernor to be precise. After making good, very good he stopped accepting payment as that area became diverse and most couldn’t or wouldn’t pay their bill.

    Anyways the dreadlocked youth checked out the title, took a test drive and returned. He handed over cash, and then produced a gun. Needless to say he took the Gold Jeep, title, and his money back. Said suv was spotted at a River Rouge Dollar Store.

    Turns out she’s an artist of sorts and her sketch is dead on for the pics off the stores cams. I just don’t know who’s the dumber one. A lady permitting an unknown “rapper” to come to her home or the armed carjacker..?

    Lloyd Austin was a Lt. Col. at Fort Bragg in 1995 when this happened:

    Secretary of the Army Togo West announced last week that the Army would investigate hate-group membership among its troops in the wake of the Dec. 7 slayings of a black man and woman in Fayetteville, N.C. Three white soldiers of the elite 82nd Airborne Division, based at nearby Fort Bragg, were charged in connection with the murders, assessed by police as random and race-motivated.

    Maj. Gen. Larry Jordan, the Army’s deputy inspector general, is conducting the investigation and is to submit his findings by March 1.

    Police say the three suspects in the Fayetteville murders were self-styled neo-Nazis. A search of a private room rented off base by one suspect, Pvt. James Norman Burmeister II, found racist literature, a Nazi flag, a bombmaking manual, and weapons, police say. Newspaper reports quoted one of Private Burmeister’s former barrack-mates as saying he had pinned the flag above his bed at Fort Bragg before he moved off base.

  10. I can’t see why the US can’t continue to win (unequal) wars using drones, missiles, smart bombs etc – superior technology – and then send in the diverse forces to occupy a thoroughly ‘pacified’ region.

    The thing with our new drone technology is that many of the circuit boards and electronics are manufactured in China. In the event of a full scale war, we would not have enough chips to build up more drones after our initial supply ran out.

  11. As long as the foreign policy is dictated by the deep state agencies and industrial complexes, the more the army is sabotaged, the better. Less ability to start another dozen forever wars, at least not outside black Africa or Central America.

    Up to a point, of course. Not to the extent that the “elites” panic and start using nukes and (more openly) bio-weapons willy nilly.

    Is “willy nilly” still allowed, btw? Sounds like a trans slur of some sort. Possibly concerning the ones that chopped their penises off, as in “what a bunch of willy nillies”.

  12. Per “Colonel” Timothy Holman:

    “Prohibited actions in support of extremist organizations or activities include, but are not limited to, participating in a public demonstration or rally; attending a meeting or activity with knowledge that it involves an extremist cause; fundraising; and recruiting, training, or organizing members of extremist organizations.”

    I would bet my left one that BLM or Antifa are not considered “extremist organizations” by our dusky Colonel.

    Colonel, I’d personally be looking at the Latinos, who generally have a far higher IQ than your compatriots of color, and after Biden/Harris is done and dusted, will as a voting bloc be seeking a larger slice of the welfare pie.

    Since Antifa and BLM are not only extremist but terrorist organizations, and since Antifa and BLM are the paramilitary arm of the ruling class and Democratic party, as virtually all of the MSM is the propaganda arm of the Democratic party -which explains why the masked zealots and criminals of Antifa and BLM are not only rarely punished for acts of terroristic violence but actually supported and often celebrated- the Democratic party is itself an extremist and terrorist organization.

  13. Good. Let’s hope it gets smashed to bits in a war with China or Russia. Hopefully that will lead to the end of the American world order and ther permanent discrediting of liberalism in the eyes of elites around the world

    A similar situation happened to me recently at a large Detroit-area hospital. Arriving early for my appointment, the black security guard gave me the third-degree asking me multiple times about where my appointment location was. I was told that I could not enter the facility at that time and would have to wait in a waiting area full of junk, which appeared to be a storage room. The security guard was a black female. While I was waiting, I observed this same security guard allow a number of blacks to pass without questioning them about their destination.
    This infuriated me, so I went up to the security guard and accused her of racism. It is obvious that she had never been called "racist" before" and called her supervisor, who was a black retired Detroit police officer who demanded that I wait outside. To his credit, he was cordial and professional and eventually did allow me to wait inside the building.
    The only reason I utilize this Detroit-area hospital is that is where my long-term medical treatment has been. I am satisfied with the medical treatment, but did not appreciate the way I was treated by the racist security staff.

    What a tragic end for the Walters Art Gallery, one of the foremost private collections open to the public. Fact is, due to what Baltimore has become in recent decades, and despite endless multi-cultural 'outreach to the community' the Walters has had enormous difficulty attracting visitors anyway. The great accomplishments of Western Civilization no longer appeal to white kids, so why ever would black kids be interested?

    But it isn't the art which failed, it's the (culture).
    And the failure has been deliberate, always.

    If the US military has nothing to do with anything that I, as a US citizen, care about, then why should I care if they ever win a war again or not? So they blow up some goatherds in Tyrannia or Fanatistan, and politically connected defense contractors make piles of money. I don’t have a dog (or perhaps, a goat) in that fight. They run interference for the state of Israel. They protect the investments of multinational corporations that may well be owned by foreign nationals, that employ foreign nationals, and are located on foreign soil. Why should I care?

    “Cohesive teams” are typical types of disingenuous P.R./H.R. buzzwords that filter into the military from academia and marketing. It’s Newspeak treacle for “play along if you want to get along”. I remember having to click through online Army training courses which detailed the adoption of Lean Six Sigma bullshit during a deployment. We still had to jump through these online make work certifications during our downtime between convoys.
    It was the nonstop bombardment of suicide awareness, sexual assault programs and equal opportunity pablum which killed any sense of cohesion for me. As far as effective “warfighting” is concerned, I think the term paper tiger is an apt analogy. As far as functioning as a funnel for funds, resources and ideology the “new” military is a well oiled machine. Special forces and private security will be tasked with the “dirty” work, while the gals and grunts sit in gymnasiums or in front of zoom sessions waiting to sign attendance rosters.

    The US military receives enormous funding whether this country is at war (always) or not. The schools get funded whether the kids show up or not.

    Public institutions are all about the embrace of political, social policies.

    Diversify the army. Diversify the schools.

    One of our elders served with distinction in Europe during Big 2. A Dr. Richard Kuhn. The Allies used his role as surgeon as cover to spy. You see the Germans generally let doctors travel un molested, all of his tools and implements were hollowed out to conceal notes or letters.

    He was OSS and US Army Intelligence, the Detroit News featured him 20 or 30 years ago. Called him “A living history lesson”. After the war he resumed his practice in SW Detroit. At Junction and Vernor to be precise. After making good, very good he stopped accepting payment as that area became diverse and most couldn’t or wouldn’t pay their bill.

    I don’t think he’d dig what’s happening to his Army today.

    I also think this is why the DoD is so keen on the automation of both combat as well as the supply chain. Drones (sea, air, and land) can do all of our dirty work with Boston Robotic style robots making up the supply line. Reduce the presence of humans in the loop and the military has formidable, if limited, combat capability (e.g. taking out "terrorists" with drones) while the human military becoming so woke and converged they would have no capability in the battlefield. In other words, future military action will be limited to drone strikes, with any kind of invasion and occupation capability long gone.

    Iron Law of Bureaucracy
     
    Thanks the stuff you learn at Unz, I looked it up and found this following beauty on the inevitable corruption of large organizations.

    https://wiki.p2pfoundation.net/Jerry_Pournelle%27s_Iron_Law_of_Bureaucracy

    Lengthy post but a profound one.

    In many organizations such as NGO’s, federations, clubs, companies, political movements and many more, over time we see a degrading of the original intentions, their thoughts and their behavior. Original good intentions slowly shift towards power games and corruption.

    Let’s analyze what happens; a small group of people with good and positive intentions unite and form an organization. They want to make this world a better place. For two reasons; the first one is that they are good people, and want to improve the world in some aspect, their intentions are right and justified. Two, they cannot perform that task alone and realize that they want to be part of something bigger than themselves, they also identify with the original intentions. The larger the organization, the more power you have, so far so good. The thing that often happens next can be explained by two well-described effect. The Ringelman effect which comes down to the more people contribute to a task, the less their individual contribution will be and the Bystander effect, also called the Kitty Genovese effect which is; the more people see or know that something bad is happening, the less the urge to act, better leave that to others.

    A ramification of the bystander effect is the fact that the larger the organization is, the less responsibility and accountability people feel towards it behavior as a group. People barely know each other, task are divided in many small parts without having a direct effect on the total outcome. Also, information limited and diffused, so people barely know what is going on in other parts of the organization and so people hardly feel bad or guilty when bad thing happened as result of that group. “I was just following orders”,” I am just a small piece of the machinery”. This explains that looking at organizations that performed evil things, each individual that you talk to seems like a very nice and agreeable human being, never being able to perform the evil deeds or contribute to the bad things the organization performed as a whole. Most organizations or movements do start with idealistic intentions but in many cases, known from world history, it does not only end up badly, but they create the exact opposite of what they originally intended.

    When the communist party started they wanted to create a world where wealth was divided more evenly, a class-less society and increase equality between people. Their intention was not to kill millions of citizens, commit genocide and just create another new class of privileged rulers. The same applies to the National-Socialists, whose original intentions were different from the well-known final horrible results. Freedom fighters change into suppressors, idealism turns into greed and hunger for power. Do-gooders turn into evil people.

    At the start people want to be part of “something greater than themselves”, but human nature barely accepts this. In the end most people desire to be greater than something that is greater than themselves. They want to believe in God, in humbleness, but they end up trying to become gods themselves. They start as sheepdogs, uniting and defending the sheep against the big bad wolves, but change into wolves themselves.

    One mistake is to think that everybody in that organization had the same good intentions. Many are there to make their own, hidden agenda work and see the original mission as an alibi only. Often these people rise to the very top of an organization and exploit it.

    Now the bystander effect comes into play and nobody speaks out or everybody looks the other way. It is easier and it keeps the symbolism of the original mission intact, afraid of possible repercussions and becoming a whistleblower, revealing the truth, and jeopardize the original mission. But the original mission and intentions are already buried under corruption, nepotism, mismanagement, personal and financial interests and other political intentions. In the end it is all very predictable, or like Dan Ariely wrote: '"predictable irrational".

    We human species are not as rational, independent thinking and acting and as positive as we think. Just look at today’s new items. We are small and vulnerable for manipulation, we need leadership to “guide” us, we are naïve or easily deceived, manipulated or exploited by others. The best way to counteract this to get educated or educate yourself, to become a critical and independent thinker and if need accept the consequence of this as well, because one and awhile you might rattle the cage and doubt or shatter the illusions of others, which they won’t like. But always keep mind the relative value of your own thinking and values, since you might be wrong as well. The truth lies, like often, in finding a balance.

    Apparently, Holman is conveniently unaware that, in many, if not most cases, a white person walking in a black neighborhood TODAY isn’t safe. Even a liberal leaning friend of mine who buys weed from a black guy was told to never enter the black neighborhood without calling him first and waiting to be escorted in and out. Add to that, most whites who aren’t delusional know that going into a black neighborhood (day or night) is a really bad idea and to avoid them for that very reason unless they want to get raped, robbed, shot or stabbed or beaten. How about Holman talking about the racism of the black community? I won’t hold my breath.

    This is very likely true.

    It is also completely irrelevant.

    The only legitimate purpose for the US military is to defend the country from foreign invasion. Which is apparently the only thing that the US military is forbidden to do! We are being invaded by foreign nationals, who may not mostly be armed, but they are invading for reasons that invaders always do: to take our land, our resources, our jobs, and eventually, to take political control and displace us.

    If the US military has nothing to do with anything that I, as a US citizen, care about, then why should I care if they ever win a war again or not? So they blow up some goatherds in Tyrannia or Fanatistan, and politically connected defense contractors make piles of money. I don't have a dog (or perhaps, a goat) in that fight. They run interference for the state of Israel. They protect the investments of multinational corporations that may well be owned by foreign nationals, that employ foreign nationals, and are located on foreign soil. Why should I care?

    The individual members of the US military are mostly pretty decent and probably think of themselves as patriotic, and I bear them no ill will, but they are not fighting for me and my family and my nation, and I don't care if the US military wins or loses.

    I hope that they weed out all the “white supremacists” from the military. I hope they alienate all the competent whites so they don’t re-enlist. And I hope all are replaced by diversity.

    Then I hope they are all sent into combat.

    Show me one person other than a dyed in wool black militant that would actively seek out a black lawyer for counsel in any instance and i’ll jump off a 70 story building. Not to say there aren’t any competent black lawyers, but Christ all one needs to do is look at jobs where being an idiot is not an option and the classrooms and offices, cockpits, laboratories etc. will be nearly devoid of the groid. This woman was fired, like many other whites for doing nothing more than pointing out the obvious.

    OT but still relevant here.
    Fox 2 Detroit featured a story about an Allen Park car sale that resulted in the woman getting a gun in her face. I guess the message isn’t getting through. ?? She met a “young man” on F B marketplace and arranged the sale at her home. WTF!!

    Anyways the dreadlocked youth checked out the title, took a test drive and returned. He handed over cash, and then produced a gun. Needless to say he took the Gold Jeep, title, and his money back. Said suv was spotted at a River Rouge Dollar Store.

    Turns out she’s an artist of sorts and her sketch is dead on for the pics off the stores cams. I just don’t know who’s the dumber one. A lady permitting an unknown “rapper” to come to her home or the armed carjacker..?

    Most blacks were in support positions "in the rear with the gear (and beer)", not in combat units. This gave them plenty of time to bitch and moan about their "oppression". Attacks by blacks were not uncommon, especially in the USA. At Camp Pendleton, in 1969, our NCOs discreetly advised us white Marines to travel in groups to and from the EM club as gangs of blacks were likely to be a problem.

    THE COLLAPSE OF THE ARMED FORCES
    By Col. Robert D. Heinl, Jr.
    Armed Forces Journal, 7 June, 1971
    https://msuweb.montclair.edu/~furrg/Vietnam/heinl.html

    Camp Crocket? Never heard of it
    http://www.vietvet.org/crocket.htm

    During the Vietnam War a guy I worked for had been a Special Forces officer in the 6th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg and described how, at that time, the 82d Airborne Division was so filled with blacks that its nickname of "All American" (from its WW I infantry division days when it had someone from every state of the union) was informally and derisively changed to "All Afro." One battalion of the 325th Infantry in the division's 2d Brigade was so overwhelmingly black that it was referred to as the Nairobi Rifles.

    In 1972 a friend of mine returned from a tour as a combat medic in the 3d Brigade (Separate), 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) and was to be assigned to a battalion in the 3d Brigade of the 82d. Race problems were to be found everywhere but at that time they were particularly bad in the 3d Brigade, so he definitely did not want to be assigned there. A sympathetic sergeant major changed his orders to an assignment in the 1st Brigade where my friend had been assigned prior to being sent to Vietnam.

    By the mid-1970s, with the war behind it, the Army was offering a $2500 bonus to anyone who enlisted for four years in a combat arms MOS (infantry, armor, field artillery or air defense artillery). Many an orc was drawn to what was seen as quick cash.

    I enlisted in early 1975 and was sent to Germany. There I found that all of the dysfunction of the orcs one encounters in "enriched" environments had been carried over to the military as well, to include drug use, discipline problems, crime, etc. A later Chief of Staff of the Army referred to this era as that of the Hollow Army. It wasn't entirely due to the orcs, but certainly they deserve a major portion of the credit.

    Off-topic but I couldn’t let this one go. Here in Killinois you have to make an appointment in order to do anything with your drivers license so when I get to the drivers license facility, the African-American gentleman asked to see the appointment on my phone. He asks everyone else to see their phone so we can verify the appointment but when he gets to the African-American woman, he doesn’t ask to see her phone.

    Is that black privilege?

    Replies: @Kyle Kiernan, @anarchyst

    A similar situation happened to me recently at a large Detroit-area hospital. Arriving early for my appointment, the black security guard gave me the third-degree asking me multiple times about where my appointment location was. I was told that I could not enter the facility at that time and would have to wait in a waiting area full of junk, which appeared to be a storage room. The security guard was a black female. While I was waiting, I observed this same security guard allow a number of blacks to pass without questioning them about their destination.
    This infuriated me, so I went up to the security guard and accused her of racism. It is obvious that she had never been called “racist” before” and called her supervisor, who was a black retired Detroit police officer who demanded that I wait outside. To his credit, he was cordial and professional and eventually did allow me to wait inside the building.
    The only reason I utilize this Detroit-area hospital is that is where my long-term medical treatment has been. I am satisfied with the medical treatment, but did not appreciate the way I was treated by the racist security staff.
