'Woke' Military Leader Who Went After Tucker Carlson While in Uniform Makes a Desperate Follow-Up Video After Furious Public Responds  By C Douglas Golden   Published March 15 2021  

It’s unprecedented territory for the Pentagon togo after a private citizen nd opinion journalist for being critical of the current administration. However, that’s just what happened when Tucker Carlson of Fox News made comments critical of President Joe Biden’s Defense Department wokeness campaign.

On the Tuesday edition of his show, Carlson criticized the president after comments during a Monday media briefing in which he talked about changing the culture of the military in ways like “designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits, updating requirements for their hairstyles.”

Meanwhile, he noted that China, America’s most pressing adversary, was going in the opposite direction.

“China’s military becomes more masculine as it’s assembled the world’s largest navy, our military needs to become, as Joe Biden says, more feminine,” Carlson said
He added that “identity politics is Joe Biden’s priority. It’s all that matters” and noted that “the U.S. military exists to fight and win wars. That is its only purpose. The U.S. military is not an NGO [nongovernmental organization]. It is not a vehicle for achieving equity. It is not a social experiment. It’s definitely not an employment agency.”

This led to plenty of pushback, including an official news release in which the Department of Defense bragged that a “Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military.” Good use of time there.
