Killing With Kindness: Affirmative Action and the Destruction of Military Effectiveness
The femanization of the US Army is central to the collectivist agenda in their endeavor to take control of our country. The Army Equal Opportunity Program (EO) began in the 1970’s is a vital mechanism of this deconstruction. It may be one of the boldest and least recognized social engineering agendas in recent memory. Information concerning the EO program is readily available via the internet and from my personal experience as an Army Command EO Advisor. The object of this essay is not to diminish the contributions of black or other minority Americans but to show they, too, have been done a disservice by abandoning the notion of merit and color-blindness.
The EO program had its beginnings in the early 1970s with the dictate to address racial and ethnic tensions within the ranks. The initial directive for Army leadership was to identify the cause of racial strife permeating the conscript army. Many studies, reports, and surveys later concluded the underlying reason for the strife was the actual or perceived issue of discrimination. Amazingly enough, no one thought to consider the conflict in Viet Nam and the majority of soldiers dying were not minorities. They were poor conscripts, without the influence necessary to avoid enforced servitude in the Army. The statistics of casualties do not support the conclusion of a racial incongruity as the root cause of the purported discontent in the army.
