[Ed. – Reading Mao, Marx, and Lenin doesn’t make you a communist unless you find their theories laudable.]

There’s nothing new about military leaders dismissing criticism of their decisions by wrapping themselves in the flag. Progressives used to see it as an authoritarian tactic. Now, though, they are happy to salute. …

Two Republican congressmen — Matt Gaetz and Mike Waltz, both of Florida — raised questions about “critical race theory” at a House Armed Services Committee hearing. General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the congressmen that it was vital for the military to study different perspectives: “I’ve read Mao Tse-tung. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist.”

He added, “I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military, our general officers, our commissioned and non-commissioned officers, of being quote ‘woke’ or something else because we’re studying some theories that are out there.”
