Revisiting Duty, Honor, Country On Memorial Day

May 28, 2018
True Diversity in our Military Academies
By William F. Marshall

https://www.americanthinker.com/arti...academies.html
During the Obama years talk about closing the service academies re-surfed. Democrats hate anything that strengthens duty, honor, country in the officer corps. The Chicago sewer rat purging the military of loyal officers was an incremental substitute until the service academies could be closed so the first loyalty of military staff officer would be to the United Nations not the their country.

The federal government, and the US military, have been thoroughly infiltrated by the very type of person the country was warned about in the Army-McCarthy hearings (1954). Unfortunately, one type of infiltrator in the military escaped detection until recently. Nobody, myself included, separated hardcore Communists from global government traitors who might not be Communists.

The most perverse joke of all is that politicians who wanted to close the service academies portray men and women who devote their lives to defending the country as freeloaders —— which is exactly what Democrats are. The truth is that closing the service academies was meant to end up with every high-ranking military officer indoctrinated in America-hating institutions of higher learning:


Unlike most public colleges and universities that are “only” subsidized to the tune of 40-70 percent (not counting the subsidy within the student loan programs), and where students must nonetheless pay the difference in tuition, the military academies are 100 percent taxpayer funded. Moreover, they are subject to no serious oversight and no one asks if any of them achieve their stated goals of churning out the country’s most educated and brilliant students.

Training is something the military does—education, certainly, is not. Indeed, undergraduate education of officers has already largely been outsourced, since most new officers come from the much cheaper Reserve Officer Training Corps programs at civilian universities (at one-quarter the cost of the academies), or from the several months of Officer Training Corps (one-eighth the cost) that follows either an enlisted career, or college. By all standards, these officers are just as good as those who come from the service academies, which now produce under 20 percent of U.S. officers…

The academies function as propaganda mills for military “tradition” and exist to turn out a new generation of influential government employees who will call for even more money to be spent on their alma maters.

What the country got from Obama’s military traitors is loyalty to the United Nations.

You will never find anybody from Officer Training Corps programs educated by the Department of Education who believe “Duty, Honor, Country” (especially country). Those are not words U.N.-lovers want spoken by military officers.

Duty, Honor, Country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying points: to build courage when courage seems to fail; to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith; to create hope when hope becomes forlorn. Unhappily, I possess neither that eloquence of diction, that poetry of imagination, nor that brilliance of metaphor to tell you all that they mean.

I remember the original attempts to close all of our military academies? It was not about efficiency, nor was it about sexual misconduct as the Shuger article suggests, and it sure as hell was not proposed by liberals because West Point, Annapolis, and the Air Force Academy were hotbeds of Communist activity.

Finally, this country is better because of The Long Gray Line. Can Democrats say the country will be better if they close the military academies?

Nonsensical RW partisan bullshit and outright lies bordering on insanity.
Dismissed as such.

I find it amusing that the biggest "patriots" when it comes to waving the flag and rah-rah bullshit are nowhere to be found when their country calls. Cowards like Cheney, Bush Jr, Ashcroft, O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Nugent, McConnell, John Wayne, etc. And now the "patriotic" Republicans are covering treason committed by draftdodging Trump. These are the same exact people crying about guys taking a knee during the national anthem. Their "patriotism" isn't even skin deep. 10 to 1 the OP never served either.

Yeah, the Conservatives are "true patriots".
Thanks from Clara007

Indeed. Talk is cheap.

However, to be fair, John Wayne was 34 years old, married and had children when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. And his film during WWII did have propaganda and home front morale value.

To GluteusMaximus: Do not confuse self-defense with patriotism. Liberals always wrap themselves in the flag at the same time they find reasons to avoid defending the country. Two examples:

1. Irrespective of Pearl Harbor, no liberal would have fought in WWII if Hitler had not double-crossed Stalin.


1939
The Hitler-Stalin Pact

https://www.history.com/this-day-in-...er-stalin-pact
2. Liberals not only refused to defend the country against Communism throughout the Cold War, they worked to bring defeat to their own country during the Vietnam War.

One observation about the Vietnam War itself. It was as necessary as the Korean War. Had the U.S.A. and its allies defeated Communism militarily during the Cold War, the war against Islam would be a pushover today instead of America facing two enemies sworn to destroy this country. Specifically, Korea and Vietnam would be this country’s allies on China’s border instead of two full-fledged enemy Communist countries.
Question: Why Was JFK Assassinated?

AND don't forget. Not a single Democrat ever served in the military, died in a war, waved a flag or volunteered for military duty.

This is how far gone the RW is. Insanity on steroids.

To Clara007: Only a small percentage of rank & file Democrats are hardcore Socialists/Communists. Most are useful idiot sign-carriers.

Hell, back in the late 50's my grandpa on my mom's side was still alive. He'd rant and rave about that commie Roosevelt all the time, old drunk liked to say ALL Democrats were commies at heart.
