Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson came under fire for recent comments about females in the military. The left wing media spun his statements out of context creating a fury across the nation.
But Carlson isn’t taking the fight sitting down.
Carlson doubled down explaining he wasn’t maligning the military but rather Joe Biden’s obsession with identity politics:
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.
Then Carlson responded to the Pentagon’s attack against him:
For centuries, our military has been self-consciously non-partisan. In a democracy, it has to be that way. No country can survive if its armed forces become the tool of a specific political party. We know that because it happens all the time, all over the world, and the consequences are always horrifying. It has never happened here.
However, Lloyd Austin is openly political. In his first days on the job, Austin made the entire armed services submit to a kind of political purity test. Anyone with views that he found ‘extreme’ had to leave. The rest of us watched as this happened, and once again, no one said anything. The left approved, the right felt hamstrung because they support the troops. Of course, if you support the troops, you should probably speak up when they’re being abused.
Carlson is absolutely right. The military should be focused on one thing: defending America. When anything else takes priority, it puts our country in the crosshairs and our children at risk.
