Whiskey Tango Foxtrot ‽

People just don’t understand history or the modern military.

First there is a Space Cadet Force squadron commander who succumbs to Marjory Taylor Green syndrome and puts on a public display of his lack of knowledge of Marxism or military regulations:

Washington, DC (CNN)A Space Force lieutenant colonel has been removed from his command after appearing on a conservative podcast criticizing the United States military.

Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier joined The Steve Gruber show to discuss his new book, “Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military,” which alleges that Marxist ideologies are becoming widespread within the armed forces. He expounded on those concerns in the podcast.

Lt. Col. Lohmeier can forget about the courtesy promotion to full Colonel if he is allowed to retire rather than being court martialed. There is no chance in hell his self-published book would have made it through review. He should have retired before displaying his ignorance. He is apparently really upset about anti-discrimination training which has been going on since Harry Truman integrated the military. If he had done some honest research he would have realized that fascism is a bigger problem for the military than Marxism.

Brian Williams of MSNBC has blessed Ted Cruz with a replacement for “Cancun Cruz”, Kremlin Cruz, for his approving sharing of the Russian recruiting agitprop and denigrating the US Army’s recruiting video featuring Corporal Emma Malonelord. Russia has a draft; the US is all volunteer. Push-ups aren’t a lot of good for operating the control panel of a Patriot anti-missile system.

Madison Cawthorn, if possible, is more ignorant of history than epidemiology or aetiology. Congresscritter Cawthorn, who rarely bothers to show up for votes, is totally unaware of the 1775–1782 North American smallpox epidemic. If Washington had been aware of the respiratory side of smallpox, he would have demanded the army wear masks, in addition to his order for entire army to be subjected to variolation. Unlike Jenner’s later discovery of the efficacy of cowpox producing immunity, variolation involved smearing the active virus in a small wound, which is a hell of a lot more dangerous.

These people deal in opinion and don’t approve of facts.
