Tucker Carlson targeted by Pentagon over treatment of women in the military

Many argue that when it comes to the American military, peace through strength is a solid strategy. If that’s so, anything that weakens the armed forces is a mistake — but Fox News’ Tucker Carlson just incurred the wrath of the federal government for pointing that out on his show this week.

Carlson was just directly targeted by President Biden’s Pentagon after he argued that new measures to feminized the aspects of the U.S. military uniform are making a “mockery” of the institution, the Washington Examiner reported

Carlson was speaking on his Tuesday night program about the new female-friendly military President Joe Biden was pushing. “So, we’ve got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits,” Carlson said. “Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the U.S. military.”

The host was drawing a comparison between a Chinese military initiative and the agenda transforming the American military. “While China’s military becomes more masculine as it’s assembled the world’s largest navy, our military needs to become, as Joe Biden says, more feminine, whatever feminine means anymore since men and women no longer exist,” Carlson said.

Carlson blamed the Department of Defense for kowtowing to the woke progressives. “The bottom line is it’s out of control, and the Pentagon is going along with this,” Carlson said.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby fired back that they wouldn’t be taking “personnel advice from a talk show host or the Chinese military.” Kirby also advanced the progressives’ idea that an institution is made better through diversity.

“We are better and more effective, not only when we represent the American people, all the American people, but also when we have the morals to include other perspectives and ideas,” Kirby said. “A major and specific contributor to that advantage are the women who serve, civilian and military alike.”

Women and men are built differently and, for that reason, have different skills and advantages to offer. Rather than hiring based on merit, the focus recently has about checking the right boxes employees, which sounds fair but weakens any institution. While it’s true that including women in the military has its benefits, purposely cramming someone into a role based on gender doesn’t bode well for an institution — whether that’s doing so for men or women.

What ever Tucker sys is true, he pulls no punches. The woke democrats are taking over our military. We then will have a dear leader just like China. Course, Joe is already in bed with China

I served 7 years on active duty in the Marines, 1968-1975. 14 months in Vietnam as a Tunnel Rat. In 1995 I went into the Utah Army National Guard for 4 years. In 1999 I transferred into the Army Reserves for 3 years. During my time in the National Guard and the Army Reserves I worked with many women and most I wouldn’t give 2 cents for. Because of QUOTES, woman and minorities would get promoted and cushy jobs only because of their gender and skin color. In combat I never served with woman and THANK GOD FOR THAT.

Also, if woman want EQUAL treatment then why is it that they don’t have to register for the draft at 18?? I remember a few years back people were like all upset when this topic came up. I think that people started saying, “NOT MY DAUGHTER” . What a joke.

When I was in Vietnam for 14 months which I would say 80% of that time was out in the jungle hunting down the enemy there was one thing that was very hard and scary to do. Guess what that was?? Well I’ll tell you, GOING TO THE BATHROOM. You always had to have someone with you to be some what safe. How would a woman handle that one thing?

I have full respect for all Veterans but I’ll tell you, I would rather serve in the desert instead of the jungle anyway. Not only did we have to worry about the enemy but we also had to fight off at times the animals. Cobras, Rock Apes as we called them because they would throw rocks at us and they would sometimes attack us and we shot many of them. We always fear of walking into an ambush which in the jungle would only be feets away. YUP, GIVE ME THE DESERT ANYDAY…

Let’s face it Joe will get in bed with anybody if it’s 7pm or later. We cannot trust a President that is too lazy to work which is most “woke” dems problem. Soon Joe will be in bed with Iran and Russia too. Nobody will know who is screwing who. And that is how wars begin.

Trucker is the one I will believe. Biden is “Commander in Chief.” What a joke. Those in the military have to go along with the ranting of a brain dead pResident–for awhile at least. So they will take his orders. What a travesty for our Military, for our country. All because the election was stolen from President Trump.

Sorry, Tucker is right in this situation, there is NO reason America should be be sending pregnant women anywhere near battle in planes or on the ground, thus no need for the flight suits. This is an extreme liability even though our top brains don’t see it. I hope they have some kind of no liability form in place for these women to sign releasing the government from any and all liability.

The fact that Biden is allowing at taxpayers expense the transgender activities of the new age progressive agenda to destroy America. We are the laughing stock of the world as our enemies become more aggressive and militant we become more submissive and docile. For me it is a big mistake that any GOP people voted the into the presidency when a strong and direct man was available to be elected. Many Americans did not like Trump’s aggressive style but it made China, Iran, N. Korea and Russia take notice and they were fairly inactive for almost four years. Now in two months N. Korea and Iran alone are making moves America under Joe is doing nothing other than fire a few missiles at combatants, Trump fired one missile we know about that hit Iran where it hurt in its terrorist leadership. Biden is worthless and mentally incapable of doing a thing about adversaries, he like most dems believe the real threat is the GOP! Real Americans with American values not sick progressive crap.

This idiotic bunch of so-called leaders is a disgrace. Tucker is one of a very few people in the public eye who tells it like it is. These jerks at the Pentagon are going to get people killed needlessly. BTW. one minute this regime is killing babies and then using pregnant women to glorify their “diversity”. That picture of a pregnant woman in a ” flight suit” is probably the stupidest thing I have ever seen. We are fast becoming the laughing stock of the worid; and rightly so.

People do not realize that taking down history, Statues, books, toys and going against American people the way they are IS RACIST!! Most Americans accept other nationalities, and or wasn’t racist, Obama tried to bring that back to some other Nationalities when he was in office. But the TRUTH is that most Americans from the beginning were not born here! We are all of the mixed Nationalities. If you were to do your family tree you would find all the different Nationalities in it. People need to realize that we are all mixed and many have all the different Nationalities in them. I found out! I have family that came from all over the World. I didn’t know this. But, even though growing up I didn’t think the different races should mix, if they were to have their nationalities survive, it has changed. NO one is of just one nationality unless they were interbred from when their family began. It is a shame, to see so many people attacking others because of their Nationality. Most people came to America for the American Dream, and now with all the BS News talk everyone and the Biden Administration wants us to go back to the 1600 or 1700s and Women not be in the workforce, no authority and stay home and make babies and raise them. We have come too far to allow this to happen, we need to go forward not backward.

I know Tucker is right because he doesn’t lie. Putting pregnant women on military is so risky for everyone. Do they not think about birth defects? Or for some horrible no sense at all she would be holding a gun to fight off terrorists and get contractions. Are they going freeze that moment or get them killed? Not to mention how uncomfortable it is moving to and fro. Biden is an idiot, no one respects him or likes him so why listen to him. Those that do are bound by an oath even if they don’t agree. We really do need a strong for the American people President and thats Trump. He can get the job done. Miss him so much especially living in these horrible times.

Also, jumping out of planes and trying to perform a rolling landing on the ground. Where are the studies that show such a jolt may harm the baby? I would think any commander would not allow a pregnant woman subject to gun rounds and physical running perform these duties until the child was born as these things could cause harm to the child! Why thoughts of military fashion show for pregnant soldiers only?

E.O. 9066, drafted by Democrats put my mom, my aunts, my uncles, Grandparents into the Gila camp SW of Phoenix for 3 1/2 years,4 summers in the desert with no air conditioning and very few fans. That was the beginning of the shame. Their situation was worse when they got out of camp, no jobs because of racism, 25 dollars to start a new life (this was after they had 48 hrs to liquidate their homes and possessions on pennies on the dollar). The Japanese in camp weren’t allowed to teach their kids for school. They were taught by locals from Phoenix, who by the way were shamed and blackballed for years for helping out the Japanese. Democrats did that to my family. Only one politician stood up for them, Governor Ralph Carr in Colorado. Of course he was shamed a d never won another election. The amazing thing other than my brothers and I, plus my mom my other relatives to this day vote DEMOCRAT. SHAMEFUL! The Democrat party, the party of manipulation and death.

So sorry about your family, that was shameful. The Democratic party is as well. But back then they also brainwashed people into believing that they had to vote Democrat if they wanted out. My parents also voted Democrat, I grew up not wanting anything of politics. I did listen all these years and the only one worth voting for in 2016 was President Trump. I liked his openness and he shared everything. He talked about truths, not lies. I have never regretted voting for him. I voted in 2020 for him, too and he won again, but the Democrats couldn’t let it stand. I will vote for him if he runs in 2024 if we are all still here and Biden doesn’t stop people from voting altogether. I am proud to say I voted for him, he was and still is a GREAT PRESIDENT! He is also a really great man.

I am really upset when I see women degraded this way. It’s time the NATURAL truths are recognized — men and women ARE NOT equal — nature has made women SUPERIOR. How can this be, you ask?? Men are stronger and can easily maintain their dominance — Oh yeah — simple example; I have ten men and one girl — how many children can I have in one year?? Now, just turn the numbers around — ten girls and one man; now, just who do think NATURE has given RACE SURVIVAL to??? Their roles have been defined by a force FAR GREATER than our puny efforts. This race equality is a MYTH. Women SUPPORT THE RACE, men support and protect women. That well known phrase “women and children first” is based on SURVIVAL, not etiquette. Men and women may beat their chests and “demand” equality, BUT when the women start coming home in “body bags”, society will DEMAND a halt to this madness.

CINPAC has told Congress CCP will attack Taiwan within 6 yrs. I would say 3. Biden is mentally incompetant to have the Nuclear football, the U.S. will do nothing under Biden. Then CCP will control Japan, S.Korea and all Pacific rim trade bring the world to its knees. While our greatest dangerous adversary sends spys here by the thousands, (Chinese exchange astudents) stealing everything from dna of citizens to engineer bio weapons aimed at that. I said from the beginning covid was a test case for something more sinister, it appears so. We burn our cities, fire our police, keep business down destroying our economy, and the D party worries about a more feminine military. People, its not a matter of if, but WHEN will China, Russia, Iran make the move to attack. It has already started with cyberwarfare. The crescendo will happen with Taiwan, etc, Tha U.S. Cic is braindead, mentally incompetant, and totally bought off by the CCP. YOU had better see whats coming and get ready if you’re smart.

I do not see Carlson as trying to advise the Pentagon. He is expressing an opinion. Unfortunately the Pentagon spokesman John Kirby either fails to see that or the Pentagon does not know how to handle a difference of opinion. Where is his argument supporting his position? As with most leftist there is no rational or logical argument; just emotions and feelings.

Well with Democrats in control of everything in the federal government, you can’t.
The only thing that I can think of which I am not sure of, would be an emergency meeting of the COS ( Convention Of States ). I know that it is not in the constitution, but this is not a normal situation, with the Democrats in charge of all three branches of government. So! as the Democrats would do, as they did when they impeached Trump, change the rules. And as they did in the 2020 election, change the rules. Use the COS as a way to put pressure on the Democrats, to force Biden to under go a physical and mental exam. Just a thought, worth a try, maybe?
No conformity and a Forth of July. So Joe!

What Biden has done is irresponsible, and a detriment to the country, and the people. He has opened the border to, not just to illegals he has exposed the people to a reemergence of the corona virus, as well as illegal drugs, human trafficking, and all kinds of criminal activity. He is irresponsible and has no business in the position he is in. He is putting the country and the people in grave danger, and needs to be removed from office, we know that he is mentally challenged.
