Uniformed Leaders Must Restore, Not Ravage, our Military

logo Center for Security Policy
The United States Senate will shortly vote on whether to confirm Air Force General Charles “C.Q.” Brown to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the top officer in the U.S. military.

Unfortunately, Senators are on notice that Gen. Brown appears to be even more political and enthusiastic about the Marxist make-over of America’s armed forces than the disastrous incumbent, General Mark A. Milley.

Indeed, in his present role as Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force, Gen. Brown has compiled a record of espousing the worst of the Biden administration’s agenda for “fundamentally transforming” our uniformed services.

Notably, he has called for selecting and promoting officers, not based on their abilities and performance as warriors, but according to arbitrary quotas determined by the color of their skin or their ethnicity. He sees compelling female personnel to bunk and shower with biological males who “identify as females” as nothing more than a problem of managing discomfort levels. And under his leadership, the Air Force Academy has become a school for ensuring the next generation of that service’s leadership are fully indoctrinated with the radical left’s “woke” agenda.

Such priorities fracture vital unit-cohesion, demoralize those in uniform, discourage recruitment and undermine readiness. America needs commanders who oppose, not promote, these sorts of policies. That is especially true at present, when we may soon find ourselves in a shooting war initiated by the Chinese Communist Party. Consequently, every Senator should vote against Gen. Brown’s nomination.

Please take a minute to urge your Senators to ensure that we have uniformed leaders who restore, rather than ravage, our military. Take action now.
