US Military Twitter account apologizes for going after Tucker Carlson

The Twitter account for the II Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group has backed down and apologized for criticizing Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his recent statement about U.S. servicewomen.

Carlson encountered rage from U.S. Army leaders and others after arguing the army’s changes to be more inclusive to accommodate female service member made a “mockery of the U.S. military” by “woke generals.”

Many of the heated personal comments led to a later apology by the Twitter account. “Our intentions were misinterpreted and we are working to move forward from this mistake.”

Carlson’s attacks resulted on his claims of Biden’s identity politics over military readiness. He noted:

The rest of us depend on the U.S. military to protect our families and to protect the country itself. Joe Biden doesn’t see it that way. Finding the most effective military pilots — or infantry officers, or SEAL teams — is not his priority. It’s not even close to his priority. Identity politics is Joe Biden’s priority. It’s all that matters.

Americans military personnel may not agree with Tuckers statement. That’s perfectly acceptable.

What’s not acceptable is making a personal attack on a journalist over it. At least one military Twitter account has recognized this and has taken responsibility to say it.

Tucker Carlson usually tells the Truth, the rest which I have written to many of them have done nothing to help , they can not be trusted. how very unfortunate that American paid employees can not be trusted. , that a pure devastation, so is election integrity. If we can not trust the media, journalists, or our elections that is pretty darn sad. Once I lose trust you are finished for ever.

Tucker Carlson is one of the “very few” who tells it like it “really is!!” Why is it that “whenever” anything is “said” or “written” that disagrees with the Biden/Harris agenda it is ALWAYS wrong or debated by the Democrats!! I must also tell those who still think of the Democratic Party as that of “years ago”…believe me…IT IS NOT!!!! SO, BEWARE!!
May GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

Toms, I sure agree with your comment about Don Jr. President Trump will still be in the mix. He is not the type to not help our country, it means to much to him.

This marine corps senior NCO should have not commented on Tucker’s comments. The military has its own people to do that. He the NCO should be disciplined or ask to RETIRE.

The military has no business responding to any political issues. They are required by the Hach act not to discuss political issues. Whoever in the Armed Forces communicated anything directed towards Tucker should be facing an Article 15 and possible removal from the Armed Forces.

I may not be a marine but I remember the oath i took to defend the United States of America and the Constitution. That oath has no expiration date. I will defend the Republic against all enemies, FOREIGN and DOMESTIC, as long as I am on this earth. I stand for the Flag and Kneel only to God. To my comrades at arms in the Marine Corp I say Sempre Fi and may God protect you in service the the Republic. US Army served in defense of the the Republic in the late 50’s/

You people are so wrapped up arguing about a flight suit you missed an awful big point about pregnant ladies flying for hours at military altitudes. I think pregnant women willing to risk absorbing the much higher natural radiation at military altitudes in transport, tanker or medevak flights should have far more serious concerns for their unborn child’s well-being than the fit of their flight suit.

I am writing checks to Conservative/Republican Organizations praying others will do the same with their stimulus check. We need to put a stop to the Democrates “Bill To Go” with their agendas that Joe says “I don’t know what I’m signing as practices writing his name. There is nothing I could spend the money on that is more important than the continued freedom of future generations. AMERICA FIRST. 😃Imagine Nancy & Chucky hearing!

Did you happen to notice when Biden was signing his name, publicly televised, that there was no writing on those papers? Biden was signing blank pages. Now I wonder what will be written above his signature.

That is such a true statement. And remember, all this starts with your local elections. Schoolboard, Trustees, District Court judges, and so on up the line. Research your candidates for the positions. Also become an election poll worker or observer. Both are very enlightening about what is going in YOUR polling area.

The American people deserve to know who is running the country. We know that Joe Biden lost in a landslide election, but was installed by the Deep state. Biden is not capable of making decisions. He is mentally incompetent and we all know it. Our country is in deep trouble, and it concerns me dearly that whoever the people are in control right now are evil! This has to stop!

A while ago our Commandant asked the retired Marine Corps Generals to keep their mouths shut regarding political comments as it only makes things harder for the current Generals to remain above the fray. We have spokesmen at the highest levels in the Marine Corps authorized to comment on current political events. Everyone else should keep their mouth shut. Whatever, the news media has to say will be addressed by the appropriate level of Marine Corps General Officers.
