Ted Cruz Mocks Wokeness in Army and Triggers Media

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has become alarmed as the US Army has adopted a more woke and less tough image. So he retweeted a TikTok video someone had posted at Twitter, which compares a recent Army recruitment ad with another from Russia.

He commented: “Holy crap. Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is not the best idea…”

Liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) quickly condemned Ted Cruz for pointing out that our foes’ armies focus on exuding strength. On the other hand, the US military exudes. . . feelings.

    I have yet to read about a battle where the losing side said something along the lines of “If only we’d had more diversity, we would have won.”

    We have waved the white flag for Korea, Iran, China, Russia, Fill in the blank ( None of that happened with President Trump. But I will make the comment that the election was stolen and as more and more comes out it appears that undeniably YES it was stolen, but I digress)

    While these General Traitors are wasting there time on attacking those who are telling them the truth, Tucker, Cruz.
    Sen Cruz is right! Everybody is walking all over us and these Traitor Generals are more concerned about there next promotion. If we get into a war we will lose. Oh wait, ! we lost to Covid, and to the Colonial Pipeline. Arrogance proceeds’ defeat

    What insurrection?
    What military? The National Guard wasn’t there for it, and didn’t protect nobody from nuthin’ that day.

    Because Ted Cruz is a sedition-loving traitor.
    And that makes every other thing they say not worth the giving the time of day. It’s a screech of partisan outrage that puts the lie to everything else they do.

    he’s willing to mock the US military to own the libs
    Well, when the libs are making a mockery of the military….
    (BTW, the Air Force is laughing their as*es off over that Army ad, saying, “Damn! Even we never put out anything so lame!”)

    Sharing Russian Propaganda
    No, “sharing” is not what he did. He compared and contrasted. Of course, a modern US news infotainment outlet wouldn’t understand that.

    They also forgot that the reason one joins the military is to serve the nation, not to prove oneself.
    Not necessarily true. But “proving oneself” is NOT what that cartoon ad was about. It was about affirming one’s self esteem, which is wholly different.
    And, the Army already went that pathetic route with its “Army of One” ads a number of years ago.

    The US military is there to be the biggest, baddest dog on the block
    Col. Jessup is the wrong image for that, though. He was just as willing to subvert his authority to his vision of what it needed to be as the progs are. His aims were just as authoritarian and awful, just at the opposite end of the spectrum from whoever decided that cartoon ad was a good idea.

    No focus on two mommies or social justice
    But here’s the thing – the military represents the culture. Our military is weakening because our national character is weakening (has weakened). And the reason it’s weakening is our progressive culture’s insistence on self and feelings (while, ironically, at the same time, pushing collectivism). When hedonism became the most popular worldview in our country, the foundation of our country was smashed. Restore that foundation, or the coming deluge will wash our ‘house’ away.
