Woke leadership needs to wake up

| May 16, 2023 1:00 AM

I see Tucker Carlson was fired from Fox News, but no reason given so far. But one Fox News official stated that Fox didn’t like Carlson criticizing the military.

The responsibility of the president of the United States, Joe Biden, is to protect the American people with a strong military. But as Carlson said, the military, from the top generals on down, are focused on social experiments, inclusion, diversity and all this woke nonsense.

I agree with Carlson, the Biden administration needs to focus on protecting us and the borders, not all this social stuff. For me, I am a proud veteran of the Vietnam War, and in those days, the military did their job.

All this woke stuff didn’t exist. Now it has gotten out of hand. The trouble is that most politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike, have never served in the military, and so they don’t know crap from shinola about the military, so instead they are pushing this woke stuff.

It is time for them to wake up and get back to basics.
