The Navy SEALS are going gender neutral and amending their long-standing creed in order to comply with politically correct norms.
They will be removing any references to “brotherhood” from their creed in order to satisfy left-wing social justice warriors who fund gendered speech offensive.
“Naval Special Warfare continues to deliberately develop a culture of tactical and ethical excellence that reflects the nation we represent, and that draws upon the talents of the all-volunteer force who meet the standards of qualification as a SEAL or SWCC,” Navy Special Warfare spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Stroup said to American Military News.
Additionally, the SEAL ethos has been changed from: “A common man with uncommon desire to succeed” to “Common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed.” Other changes include removing “I am that man” and replacing it with “I am that warrior.” “Brotherhood” has been replaced to “group of maritime warriors.”
The final line of their ethos has been changed from “Brave men have fought and died building the proud tradition and feared reputation that I am bound to uphold” to “Brave SEALs.” This is in effect the weakening of the military and a signal to foreign adversaries like Russia and China that we are ripe for the taking.
The Navy SEALs are not alone in military institutions embracing left-wing insanity. Big League Politics has reported on how the Marines are promoting feminism and transgenderism these days:
Commandant Gen. David Berger, who is effectively the leader of the Marines, outlined priorities that he believes are the “most important matters for immediate execution” for arguably the most important branch of the U.S. Military.
Among them are catering to transgender personnel and giving more rights to same-sex couples.
Berger wrote in a series of tweets that the Corps must “revise the current parental leave policy to include parental leave for adoptive parents, to include same-sex couples.”
He also wrote that the Marines must “determine feasibility of identifying and recruiting for return-to-active-duty selected female Marines currently in the SMCR and IRR, with a focus on previously gender-restricted units and job specialties.”
Berger did not explain how feminist hiring mandates or catering to gay couples would actually make the Military a stronger or more formidable fighting force, but those goals are clearly now secondary in the age of political correctness…
It appears that one of Berger’s top priorities for the Marines is just a platitudinous virtue signal to same-sex couples that does not even accomplish anything other than to codify support for the LGBT agenda into official military policy.
Berger’s mandate for a more feminist military, with more women in the ranks and serving as officers in the Marine infantry, would entail for certain gender-specific barriers to be removed. The only problem with this proposed change in policy is that women are often wholly unqualified for these roles.
It seems the terrorists have won – the left-wing terrorists at war with reality, that is – and the military is folding pathetically to this mass insanity.
