The GOP seems to have an endless supply of performative outrage. The teaching of critical race theory seems to the latest for the “getting knickers in a twist” crowd.
The GOP clown show tried to get some coverage for their outrage by raising it in a congressional hearing with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley.
Austin correctly summed up the line of questioning as “spurious.”
Milley’s response is a master class on how to respond. He’s commentary has been widely shared, as well it should be.
I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military, our general officers, our commissioned and noncommissioned officers, of being, quote, ‘woke’ or something else because we’re studying some theories that are out there.”
Watch and learn.
