There are certain things to which we expect our soldiers to be subjected. We expect that they would be drilled about love for country. We expect that they would be hammered to believe that they were the best and toughest in the world. But what about being taught that whites in America are privileged?
This is the latest program to go from public lunacy to military practice. But if that was not enough, the Pentagon has gone even further. You have an advantage, according to them, if you are male and heterosexual as well.
Judicial Watch reports
Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained documents from the United States Department of the Army revealing that in April 2015, 400 soldiers in the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Georgia, were subjected to a “white privilege” briefing, including a PowerPoint presentation instructing the attendees: “Our society attaches privilege to being white and male and heterosexual …”
What purpose does this serve? Who does this benefit? How does this information make these soldiers better at defending this country? This is moving from a political joke to indoctrination. It is disseminating this mindset to the culture through the forced exposure of our troops.
It portrays anyone who is a white heterosexual male as being unable to discern this privilege. Having no knowledge of this, we ignore it, and it never changes. But, this is the same as telling me that I cannot see the Easter Bunny because I am too old. Now I must determine whether there really is an Easter Bunny or reject this notion.
I wonder how well I would have done at 18-21 years of age and under the authority of military discipline. Would I have the wherewithal to withstand this indoctrination? Most likely not. I would have probably naively accepted this as true. Consider what the presentation told these soldiers.

The slideshow also informed the soldiers: “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans.” It alleged that there are unspecified “powerful forces everywhere” keeping different kinds of people from being valued, accepted, and appreciated, but “we act as if it doesn’t exist.” This alleged privilege creates a “yawning divide” in income, wealth, and dignity. The material described a mythical African woman who isn’t aware that she’s black until she comes to America, encounters “white racism” and discovers the U.S. is “organized according to race.”
There was another Western nation that politically indoctrinated their soldiers also. Ask Poland and Ukraine how those soldiers acted once they reached their homes.
