“Diversity and inclusion requires action. It requires decisions and it requires leaders that must put themselves out there and must make purposeful decisions,” Gen.

For those that can’t see the tweet from the “Official Twitter account for the U.S. Special Operations Command”, it reads “‘Diversity and inclusion requires action. It requires decisions and it requires leaders that must put themselves out there and must make purposeful decisions,’ Gen. Richard Clarke, commander, USSOCOM speaking at Tampa ROCKS, Inc. over the weekend. Diversity strengthens #SOF.”
A contest guessing what “SOF” might mean would be a good distraction. Maybe—and this will be a bit naughty, so the sensitive should avert their eyes—Signaling Of Fouledupess. Only it wouldn’t be pronounced that way.
Don’t cry. You were warned, and this is the military where such language is not only not unusual, but expected.
Maybe you saw that picture that circulated a year or so back of the “most diverse”, or whatever, set of academy graduates. It was of a uniformed crowd of mostly obese and unfit black women, who, if asked to use the sabers they could barely heft, would very quickly learn the true importance of the next-of-kin papers they were asked to sign.
Before you think of the obvious joke, no. Such soldiers aren’t even useful as cannon fodder, because it takes too much effort to feed them, move them into place, and keep them from interfering with useful work.
And this goes just as strongly for women of no color. Including women for the sake of sex quotas is insane, because women should not be soldiers. We don’t need “data” or experiments to tell us this: knowledge of human nature, which is unchanging, is sufficient.
Women think they can be soldiers, though, because of a relentless stream of propaganda which includes movies where scrawny chopstick-armed 120-pound females kick the crap out of four or five 200-pound burly men using grrrrl power. In Reality, you could hit one of these men over the head with one of these women and the men would shrug it off. Computer graphics can make anything seem real.
The thing about this propaganda, is that when it began everybody creating it knew if for what it was. But as it continued and became part of the official religion of government, it became difficult even for its creators to remember it was all pretend. They gaslit themselves.
Clarke says pushing Diversity and Inclusion “requires decisions and it requires leaders that must put themselves out there and must make purposeful decisions”.
Out there? Out where? Out in the field with the rest of our woke, and pretend-woke, rulers?
Progressives and puritans of all kinds must pretend to have enemies. Thus a man who is in charge of everything and faces no opposition suggests he is battling against dark forces in his noble quest to see fewer white men on base. His mirror must be broken.
He also indulges in obligatory self-congratulation. In this case for “making decisions.” No commander made decisions before, especially decisions as bold as mandating race and sex quotas to make himself look better.
It isn’t only the military, naturally. It’s everywhere it shouldn’t be. Longtime reader and contributor Kent Clizbe sent us this call for papers from the Journal of Intelligence and Counter-intelligence.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Looking for Diversity in Intelligence: Organizations, Processes, and People
Guest Editors: Ruben Arcos, Irena Chiru, Cristina Ivan
Intelligence as a field of study and practice holds several inherent obstacles to diversity and inclusion that are intrinsic to its development. Let us remember that organizational cultures of intelligence are based on an essentialized set of norms and values that are not to be questioned. Hence, boundaries become in their turn difficult to interrogate. Nevertheless, in the last two decades, the practice of intelligence has expanded from the traditional, in-silos practice of governmental organizations to a fluid framework that brings together various state, non-state and private actors and their continuous changing performances. A tension is hence set between various communities of practitioners, reflecting diversity, but making all the more difficult communication and interaction between them…
It is a poor comedian who takes the easy path of contrasting intelligence and the desire to see diversity, so I won’t do it.
I will say that every place Diversity is enforced becomes weaker. It does so because standards are lowered to accommodate and maintain the quotas. It does so while denying the standards will be lowered, and then, after they are lowered, claiming they were never needed.
We may therefore suppose that Diversity is a foreign psyop.
