Well-known host Tucker Carlson alerted Americans to the dangers they could face from President Joe Biden’s changes to the military, which was not to be weakened but ready to “to fight and win wars.”
On his regular evening program on March 11, Carlson warned of the impact Biden was imprinting on the military, “It is by far the most important. A weak military means no country, period,” according to the video below.
Carlson noted that Biden’s priorities are far from strengthening the military, and more focused on issues of racial identity and appearances not fundamentals, referring to his talk about designing bulletproof vests for women and similar issues.
“The rest of us depend on the U.S. military to protect our families and to protect the country itself,” Carlson said.
He added, “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.”
Instead, he’s all about identity politics and stuff, “It is not fine if your only job is to protect the United States from people who want to kill the rest of us. That is the worst kind of dereliction of duty,” Tucker went on to say.
Biden is seen as more attentive to gender reassignment surgeries for soldiers, and those issues are what he ascribes importance to, but that doesn’t make America safer.
Carlson noted, “How do sex changes in the military make this country safer? That’s not a trick question, it’s not another volley in the culture war, it’s the only question that matters. Literally, the only question that matters.”
In addition, Carlson spoke of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, a military man who was on the payroll of military contractor Raytheon, “If you saw something like that happen in a Central American country, you would call it corruption,” he said.
He also labeled Austin as politically driven in his handling of the military, “In his first days on the job, Austin made the entire armed services submit to a political purity test,” and those who did not pass his specifications had to leave.
Military standards at the Pentagon have been lowered just to cater to the political interests of the Democrats.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), meanwhile, remains the biggest threat to the country, and Tucker wonders how Biden’s military would respond if it were to launch aggressive operations such as an invasion of Taiwan, or block the U.S. internet among many other targets within its reach.
Biden’s Pentagon policies stand in stark contrast to the entire tenure of former President Donald Trump during his four years in office.
Trump rebuilt the military, ended the endless wars in the Middle East, eliminated the threat of ISIS, established a diplomatic relationship with North Korea to discourage its nuclear ambition, signed peace agreements between Israel and several Muslim-majority countries.
In addition, he decimated the threat of the Chinese Communist Party in the South China Sea through military alliances that include Australia, New Zealand, India, and Japan without using military force, the Democratic president has another approach, this time questioned by Tucker.
