Pentagon extremism adviser lays out challenge facing military after two commanders deny a problem exists. One day after two four-star military commanders told Congress they did not have problems with extremists in their ranks, the top adviser on the issue to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin took a different view and stated plainly that he believes the opposite.

FTA: "The Pentagon has struggled to define the issue because while extremist activity -- including White supremacist and hate activity -- is banned, there are limits on the military's ability to surveil the activities of the troops without violating their rights. Top Defense Department officials have said it's a priority to determine the scope of the problem.

But the extent of the challenge was underlined on Tuesday when two commanders insisted there isn't a problem in the forces they command."

White Supremacist servicepersons simply make our military weaker by introducing fear and uncertainty with other soldiers/sailors/airmen/marines among the ranks.

Back in the day, a major point of training and indoctrination was that a cohesive unit is imperative. Bigotry, racism, sexism will not be tolerated and could lead to Article 15 proceedings or worse.

These Generals are obviously too comfortable and arrogant in their offices and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff should do his utmost to educate them upon pain of at least losing their positions and at most forfeiture of all emoluments and pensions and given a Bad Conduct Discharge.

Oh, who am I kidding. They ain't gonna do ----.

@#2 ... These Generals are obviously too comfortable and arrogant in their offices ...

Or maybe they are reluctant to oust those of their own kind?

Do we really know how high up the chain of command the racists have gotten within the military?

There recently was a racist as the Commander in Chief.

And his defense department heads refused to stop the white supremacist fascist terrorist attack on the capitol. Our military heads were perfectly ready to let a white supremacist end democracy.

And dems are letting them sit there and keep their jobs.

Is it time for Biden to reintroduce the concept of political Kommisars within the ranks?

MadB, you seem to be seriously concerned with the topic of ridding the military of White Supremacists. And not in a positive way.

Why are you taking the extreme position of calling for a review of flag officers and other ranks as Communist Commissars?

Unless you're worried about your situation.

If you're a White Supremacist, wear the badge with pride. Stop passively-aggressively asking open-ended sarcastic questions and be a man about it.

You mean like Humpy Trumpy tried to do by installing party loyalists in key political positions to try and keep an eye on civil service employees to ensure complete loyalty and submission to the Party?

Umm No Comrade.

Your hero Pooty Poot and his hateful puppet Trumpy lost ( even though they tried collaborate to cheat again).

Elections have consequences.
