Russia, Iran, and China are laughing at us right now.
A U.S. Air Force base responded to controversy about a drag queen show hosted by the base by saying the performance was “essential to the morale, cohesion, and readiness of the military.”
Nellis AFB staged its first ever drag queen show on June 17th called ‘Drag-u-Nellis’ – which it said was important in teaching military personnel the “significance of Drag in the LGBT+ Community.”
After some veterans raised concerns about why such an event was being hosted, Nellis hit back with a statement defending the show.
The whole effort is part of a Pentagon recruitment drive to appeal to LGBT people, with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin dismissing criticism of the program as “talking points” that foreign adversaries could “capitalize on.”
He went on to claim that the U.S. military was not going “soft” and is instead focused on doing a “great job of recruiting the right kinds of people.”
Although the Trump administration went someway to reversing the woke takeover of the military, it’s back to full steam ahead under Biden.
