Biden's team is certainly doing a good job of demoralizing our military forces... Don't call real terrorists "terrorists"... that word is reserved for parents.

Woke Air Force Academy Diversity Training Tells Cadets: ‘Stop Saying Mom and Dad’, ‘Don’t Call a Terrorist a Terrorist’

A recent seminar at the United States Air Force Academy is yet another example of efforts to push the woke agenda in all elements of the US military.
 
The presentation, entitled “Diversity & Inclusion: What It Is, Why We Care, & What We Can Do,” included exercises to stop the use of gender pronouns, and other language, to eliminate “stereotypes, bias, and microaggressions.”
 
The seminar also urges cadets to avoid using the word  “terrorists.”
 
And referring to mom and dad?  That’s a no-go. “Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad.'”
 
This seminar just the latest example of the larger woke agenda poisoning the US military.
 
A US Air Force base tasked with confronting China, banned all references to gender, race and age.
 
The US Army is putting soldiers through mandatory training on pronouns and gender dysphoria.
 
In June, the US Navy released a training video for  sailors teaching  them to use “proper gender pronouns” in order to create a “safe space for everybody.”
 
Fox News reports:
 
A diversity and inclusion training by the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado instructs cadets to use words that “include all genders” and to refrain from saying things like “mom” and “dad.”
 
The slide presentation titled, “Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do,” advises cadets to use “person-centered” and gender-neutral language when describing individuals.
 
“Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'” the presentation states. “Use words that include all genders?: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’”
 
“Not ‘Colorblind’ or ‘I don’t see color,’ but Color Conscious,” it adds. “We see Color/Patterns AND VALUE people for their uniqueness.”
 
The documents were shared with Fox News Digital by Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Fla., a Green Beret and Afghan War veteran, who said the materials had alarmed cadets. Fox News Digital has verified the documents’ authenticity.
 
On Wednesday, an Air Force Academy spokesperson said in a statement to Fox News Digital  “that the D&I training is to help prepare cadets for ‘warfighting effectiveness.’ “
 
“As part of the Diversity & Inclusion Cadet Leadership Program, this conversation was developed by cadet leaders and USAFA staff to introduce all cadets to Department of the Air Force definitions of diversity and inclusion, as well as how these concepts enhance our warfighting effectiveness,” the spokesperson said. “USAFA develops leaders of character that can lead diverse teams of Airmen and Guardians inclusively, to enhance innovation and win future conflict.”
 
In a second statement Thursday afternoon, the USAFA clarified that it “does not prohibit the use of ‘mom and dad’ or other gender specific terms.”
 
“The Air Force Academy does not prohibit the use of ‘mom and dad’ or other gender-specific terms,” Superintendent Lt. Gen. Rich Clark said. “The recent briefing on diversity and inclusion is being taken out of context and misrepresented; the slide in question was not intended to stand alone.”
 
“First and foremost, the briefing centered on respect for others and the warfighting imperative of leveraging diverse perspectives to solve our nation’s most difficult national security problems,

That's the biggest problem.

Those who cannot do the job should have never ever filled the position in the first place!

So, if I commit a crime in a company, and then quit... I can no longer be held accountable for the crime I committed?

That doesn't sound fair.

A private company yes. A government agency, it depends.
