Speaking on AL radio’s FM Talk 106.5, Senator Tuberville of Alabama, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, sounded off on Biden policies. Tuberville discussed how these policies are pushing us toward the “brink of World War III” at a time when the military is facing severe problems with recruiting and wokeness.
Beginning, Senator Tuberville sounded off on the military teaching CRT and pushing wokeness at a time when it should really be focusing on building readiness and its warfighting capabilities, saying:
“We’ve got more problems in our military right now because of the leadership, because of the wokeness that they’re teaching – the CRT, the things that our kids shouldn’t be taught,” he said. “As I tell in hearings – one of the first things I always tell General [Mark] Milley of the joint chiefs of staff and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin – guys, you’re not here to educate people on social issues.
“You’re here to build a killing machine. We have to protect our country. We have to protect our allies. That is not their number one agenda for some reason. They want to bring all this woke teaching to our military.”
Continuing, Senator Tuberville commented on the immense recruiting problems the military is facing as Americans realize they don’t want to deal with “all of this woke stuff” that the military is pushing, saying:
“We were 20,000 behind last year in recruiting in the Army – first time ever. And why is that? Because growing up are looking as this, going, ‘Wait a minute, I don’t want to go in there and learn all of this woke stuff. I don’t want to follow up on what they just did in Afghanistan. Are we doing it for the right reasons?’ It just amazes me the direction our military has gone.
“I talked to a head recruiter yesterday, a general of the Army, and we were trying to come up with ways to help recruiting. That’s all I did for 40 years. As I told him, you’ve got to have something to sell that young men and women want in this country. Right now, what you’re selling is a society most of the people in this country don’t believe in.”
Senator Tuberville then got to his main point, which is that America is facing a highly dangerous situation abroad thanks to this administration as all of those problems are weakening the military, saying:
“We’ve got a lot of work to do in the military.Unfortunately, I will tell people this, and everybody needs to understand this – this is the most dangerous time in my lifetime, and I’ve lived in this country, on this planet for 68 years.
“I’ve never seen us in such turmoil in terms of the Middle East now, with Israel shooting missiles in Iran, of course, Ukraine and Russia. I mean, we are teetering on the brink of World War III. And then you’ve got China over laughing, just going what day are we going into Taiwan? And when that happens, it won’t just be us. Japan is going to jump into that. Australia is going to jump into that. And we’ve got an administration here that is worried about climate. Their number one focus is on this climate hoax that we got. And everybody worries about our environment. That should be number 25th on the list.”
