The Hill reports, “Lawmakers are taking matters into their own hands to prevent white supremacists and other extremists from joining and remaining in the military.”
The obsession linking white supremacy to the Capitol riots and using it to pursue political opposition continues unabated. Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD) tells the outlet, “The attack on our Capitol was an insurrection fueled in large part by groups that espouse the same extreme white supremacists’ views groups that actively recruit veterans and from the ranks of our military.”
Brown says he’s been in touch with the Biden administration as well as the Department of Defense over the possible measures.
The Hill notes that 27 military members past and present were charged in the riots out of 14o total people, adding that Senate Democrats are reviewing how the Pentagon implements provisions from the current NDAA “before crafting legislation for this year’s bill.” Senator Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) also said he will work with his colleagues in the Senate as well as the Biden administration to “root out hate in our military.”
It was not all that long ago that Democrats believed painting an entire group of people with a broad brush was racist. Now, they do so rather freely when it comes to our military men and women.
The report on Democrats focusing on “hate” in the military comes following a debacle of an incident involving the National Guard last week. Guard troops were “banished” to a parking garage after serving to defend against potential threats at the inauguration of Joe Biden.

“Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage,” the Guardsman added. “We feel incredibly betrayed.”
Democrats scrambled to save face after the incident, but have seemingly returned to finding ways to demonize and reveal their disdain for the military by addressing a non-existent issue.
At Biden’s inauguration, National Guard troops were vetted for extremist views despite there being “no intelligence indicating an insider threat” to the event.
