As I’ve written elsewhere, claims of America descending into fascism were four years early. It wasn’t in the Trump era that the US Capitol was patrolled by thousands of troops while the rulers hunkered down behind concrete barriers and miles of razor wire.

It’s only since the disputed Joe Biden election that journalists and politicians have joined forces to openly compile blacklists, and the ranks of the public service have been purged of supporters of the previous regime.

Then there’s the re-education camps.

Like all dictatorships, the Biden regime is terrified of nothing so much as dissidents within its own forces. Which is why the regime subjected the National Guard patrolling the walled fortress of the Capitol to political vetting. That has now been extended to the entire military, who are being heavily indocrinated in the ruling regime’s Marxist ideology.

Luckily for America, not to say civilisation, the American military are showing a deplorable resistance to woke indoctrination.

The Pentagon has a problem. Troops throughout the armed forces aren’t going along quietly with programming designed to educate them about “extremist” views and activities. The problem, says military leadership, is that too many enlisted personnel are wondering why last year’s violence fueled by Black Lives Matter isn’t viewed by their superiors as negatively as the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this year.

“This is coming from every echelon that we’re talking to,” said Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Ramón Colón-López. “Some people may think that, ‘all right, so the events of 6 January happened. How come you’re not looking at the situation that was going on in Seattle prior to that?’”

Seattle was the site of just one of many outbreaks of the leftist violence that burned America last summer. Rioters smashing into the Nakamura Federal Courthouse, burning an American flag and trashing the building is just one example of BLM violence.

Though there were many similar cases across the country by Black Lives Matter agitators, the most important task is ensuring “military members understand the difference between Seattle and Washington, DC,” Colón-López said.

I’m quite certain the ordinary grunt is able to figure it out for him or herself: one was months of nation-wide violence from the mainstream left, the other was a brief fracas by a tiny fringe of the right. Guess which one really worries the Biden regime?

And what exactly comprises the military’s “extremist” education anyway? One slide shown to soldiers by the Army lumps together the Proud Boys and fans of Pepe the Frog memes with the Waffen-SS. Navy slides obtained by Breitbart News associate extremism with political incorrectness and other concepts the Left exclusively ascribes to the Right. Sailors are also informed that while they are members of a “non-political” institution, it is not politically partisan to support Black Lives Matter in uniform.

Soldier-whistleblowers have also leaked that the military re-education officers are striving to convince the men and women in uniform that even Catholics are religious extremists. That little old lady going to church on Sunday is a bigger threat to America than an army of black-clad thugs mudering dozens of people and perpetrating the most expensive rioting in US history.

It is strange to see men like Colón-López, a decorated combat veteran, serve as the enforcers of a terrible system. But that is a testament to the coercive power of its underlying ideology, one that has spurred the defacement and destruction of monuments and buildings honoring our nation’s heroes like the Nakamura Courthouse in Seattle.

Private First Class William K. Nakamura distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action on July 4, 1944, near Castellina, Italy. Nakamura crawled toward a fortified enemy position under withering fire and dispatched with grenades a machine gun nest that had pinned down his platoon. He died while assaulting another machine gun emplacement and posthumously received the Medal of Honor.

Today, military brass kowtows to an ideology that dishonors and attempts to destroy the things for which men like Nakamura gave everything. Why they do it is less important than the fact they do at all.

The National Interest

It’s what the left do, after all. Stalin likewise ruthlessly purged the Soviet military of “rightist subversives”. His Terror left the Soviet Union almost helpless against the onslaught of another bunch of murderous racist socialists.

Xi Jinping will be reading his history books and raising a toast to his very own “Uncle Joe”.
