WOKE FORCE? Air Force Academy Professor Defends Teaching Critical Race Theory to Military Cadets


An Air Force Academy professor published an op-ed in the Washington Post this week defending the use of Critical Race Theory on new cadets; claiming the “history of racism” continues to shape “foreign and domestic policy.”

“As a professor of political science at the U.S. Air Force Academy, I teach critical race theories to our nation’s future military leaders because it is vital that cadets understand the history of the racism that has shaped both foreign and domestic policy,”  associate professor of political science Lynne Chandler García explained.

“It helps students identify the structural racism and inequality that has been endemic in American society. And it provides methods for deconstructing oppressive beliefs, policies and practices to find solutions that will lead to justice,” García wrote. “The reality of the Constitution is that it upholds the rule of law and human rights, but once also allowed slavery and has been used to perpetuate legal discrimination.”

The professor was referencing a recent congressional hearing where Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley, García claimed that critical race theory “is not unpatriotic”.

“So what is wrong with understanding, having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend? And I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military, our general officers, our commissioned, non-commissioned officers of being, quote, ‘woke’ or something else, because we’re studying some theories that are out there,” Milley said.

“In other words, racism was ingrained in the system from the beginning, and the military still struggles with these issues. As a recent inspector general’s report on disparities in the Air Force and Space Force pointed out, Black service members lag behind their White peers in promotion rates but are overrepresented in disciplinary actions. Further, a recent Defense Department report documented the threat of white supremacy within the ranks. Cadets need to understand these contradictions within their institutions,” García added in her op-ed.

    So he’s effectively accusing all his lower level commanders and NCOs of racism. They are the ones largely in control of promotions and disciplinary action. It’s not good for morale, especially when considering that a great number of these lower level leaders are minorities who earned their stripes and bars through dedicated service and self-improvement. These arrogant woke ideologues destroy everything they touch.

    Do you expect anything else from this leadership style the new wave of skin worshipping, shame selling, fear mongering left. I would just love to see this back fire and the military men and women join together and crush this ideological travesty that is try to sweep this country like a virus.

    Honestly i dont think this matters too much, most officers are nothing more than managers that collect information and scold or praise enlisted NCO’s are accomplishing the mission. During my time in, I would argue you legitimately could remove all of the officers from the chain of command and the enitre mission would continue to get done with the exception of jobs that require them, Pilots, Doctors ect. The enlisted aren’t work and given the demographic background aren’t going to be.
