I'm confused. If they didn't send any military members packing, then any conservatives in the military would still be there. Won't they?

A friend pointed out yesterday that Michael Flynn appears to have survived Obama's purges.

No, you can't conclude anything from that, but it is a data point.

I'm in San Diego, and we were keenly aware of the purge because it directly impacted people around us.

You're correct about OPM. Same way they use HR in the private sector.

For your awareness. Reduction in Force (RIF) procedures were the actual techniques used to implement the purge during the Obama era. They went on a wholesale rampage targeting the troops with the most combat experience

I can’t speak for the other services, but in the Army they used TERA to entice senior leadership to go quietly, and QMP to target mid-to-senior level NCOs with involuntary separation. The institutional knowledge these soldiers possessed - poof - gone almost overnight

They used a lot of other ways to push troops out, e.g. like creatively enforcing existing standards to the maximum, ignoring other regulations cuz ‘muh commanders’ discretion’, pushing medical retirement, etc.

Obama did a purging of conservative officers. Higher officer positions are extremely political, and while he did not necessarily give many of them the boot, what he did is drum them out. At a certain point, if you don't get promoted you can't continue in the military. So, he blocked any promotion of conservatives looking to become generals (and similar ranks), while making sure those on the left kept being promoted. These followed his directives to seek out and promote left-leaning officers at lower positions. He "strongly advised" quite a few to retire as well.

Sounds like a convenient excuse why the military let us down the last 4 years.

Where I work, we run into a few higher officers occasionally. We get the group e-mails they send to base. It's chock full of woke nonsense. The majority of officers are completely cucked. This is not an excuse. Those few officers who aren't commie bastards see what is going on, and do not take action against the wokeness. The rank and file see what is going on and do not take action against the wokeness. Obama did institute purges with a gentler appearance, and the leadership is full of commies, but that does not excuse our military from violating their oaths to protect the constitution.

Sadly, a lot of patriots enlisted under GEOTUS, proud to serve under a MAGA President. They are being purged now by the illegitimate regime.

Mostly unnoticed in the NDAA last year, with all of the focus on the "red flag" section, was the section following it on "combating extremism" in the military. "Extremism" was not defined anywhere in the document, which instead granted the Secretary of Defense sole authority to create the definition. This effectively gave the regime free rein to purge all dissenters and political opponents from the military.

This is also part of what they're using the vaxx mandates for. I don't even think it's about covid now, it's there to purge anyone who doesn't agree with them.

Of bloody course. It serves them, putting the left in positions of power. This is how they've always operated: Put people in positions of power to force changes, since the working class has been the most counter-revolutionary force possible (Not many times have they revolted by themselves other than out of desperation).

I've found myself drifting more to the right nowadays, but more as a reaction to the extremism on the left. I wouldn't call myself a hipster, but sometimes the herd is just out of their damn mind.

They only understand the diversity of skin pigmentation. They seem to love science but don't understand the visible light wavelength spectrum.

They don't tolerate diversity of actual culture very well. Cultures have various laws, punishments and medicines. The left does not tolerate that level of cultural diversity.

2
BigMikesIke 2 points ago +2 / -0

That’s because that type of diversity doesn’t help them. Diversity is only as important to them as the weight it carries in who voted. Power is end game

McCarthy merely shined a spotlight in a dark room. What roaches didn't get stomped during that time scurried to the shadows and simply waited it out. Now they are free to roam as much as they want since the government has been all but completely compromised.

"Crazy fascist Nazi grandma should be hung for sedition and treason for her Capitol insurrection!"

Also the left: "We need to be more tolerant of others beliefs, if POC don't feel safe around whites, we need to segregate them and throw whitey in a gulag in the name of inclusion and diversity."

What do you mean. I read an excerpt in there that 100% defines the left

"which defines and prohibits “active participation” in “extremist activities.” These include, “Advocating, engaging in or supporting terrorism” [or] the “overthrow of the government of the United States.”"

That's the definitely the left

Imagine a close knit community. A religious order or a motorcycle club for example. There’s an organize I get structure, rules, even a lifestyle. Now imagine there are some infiltrators. They join under false pretenses. They spy. Keep lists. Sow conflict and dissent. They undermine everything.

Even if they keep their cover for decades, they were NEVER authentic brothers. They were always traitors. They can’t hide behind their cross or patch or medals.

Those are the people running our military right now.

These days all I see are leftists calling themselves progressive which is just another way of saying commie in my eyes. What exactly do you think their idea of progress is? Progress towards a two tiered justice system is already done, they will progress to destroying the middle class and nuclear family next, that is how they get their policies in place, through causing misery.

This comes on top of many years of seeking out and developing black candidates for promotion and responsibility, everyone bending over backwards to go along with the problem.

Kirby added, “If you’re advocating for, as I said, the overthrow of the government, or you’re actively undermining the oath that you took to the Constitution . . . then all that fits.”

overthrow of the government? The people ARE the GOVERNMENT, NOT DC reps. the oath that you took to the Constitution? That is to protect the constitution and the Government, and sense the PEOPLE are the government they are doing their JOB

When Trump runs in 2024, he doesn't need to promote one single policy. All he needs to do is generate a list of the top 25,000 federal employees, military leaders, agency heads, and contractors that are all fired the day he takes office. It's on brand and it's the only way to end this quagmire of agency behavior enacted on the basis of known lies.

That's because it has nothing at all to do with extremists. What they are really doing is punishing their political opponents. This is weaponized government aimed at it's people and the very anthesis of what this country is supposed to stand for.
