ANALYSIS – Despite serious constitutional concerns, lack of evidence to justify the effort, and even top commanders’ stating that they have ‘zero extremists’ in their ranks, the Biden Pentagon continues its dangerous, shamelessly politicized, McCarthy-like witch hunt against conservatives in the U.S. military. As I have written several times, here, here, and here, the far left, enabled by the establishment media, has been pushing a false narrative of an ‘extremist’ threat to the nation – especially in the military.
Using that false narrative and the riot by a few hundred unarmed rioters at the Capitol on January 6 as pretext, the far-left, now firmly entrenched in the Biden Administration, is waging a full-scale war on anything, or anyone MAGA (Make America Great Again). This new definition now involves the vast majority of Republicans who voted for Trump, and any other conservatives the Pentagon deems to designate ‘extremist.’
It even has a category called ‘patriot extremism.’
This dangerously draconian Pentagon effort is far worse than you may have thought. It goes well beyond identifying ‘white supremacists,’ or ‘anarchists.’ It is simply a war on conservatives, and it is now led by a West Point graduate, decorated combat veteran who is also a radical leftist.
As reported by Fox News, “FOX News Primetime” host, and military veteran, Pete Hegseth explained how the Pentagon plans to “redefine extremism” with its appointment of this leftist extremist – Bishop Garrison – as senior adviser to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. Hegseth calls the Pentagon witch hunt a ‘Patriot Purge.’
As the new head of the U.S. military’s “Countering Extremism” task force, this Trump-hating, neo-Marxist ‘critical race theory’ advocate, partisan hack veteran is the man who will now separate permissible “opinion” at the Pentagon, from purgeable “extremism.” Yes, we should be very afraid.
Bishop Garrison is a 1619 race project activist, who openly tweeted that he believes all Trump supporters are racist and extremists. Per his own tweets archived on Twitter:
Fox News’ Hegseth explains:
This is not the “woke” military stuff you have been hearing about. This is not extremism stand down or a social justice reading list or even a foolish CIA recruitment video we have all seen by now. This is worse. This is way worse. This, my friends, is a purge. A purge of the Defense Department led by a new and now powerful radical leftist. A 1619 project activist, a hard core social justice Democrat. A man who believes all, all Trump supporters are racist and extremists. And what must we do to racists? We must define them and then we must purge them.
So who is the Pentagon’s newly minted MAGA purge man? Well, meet Bishop Garrison, the new senior adviser to the Secretary of Defense. His portfolio is diversity, equity and inclusion. But his purview is much wider. Never heard of him? Me neither. They like it that way. Bishop Garrison has been at the job at the Pentagon for four months now hired in the wake of the events of January 6th. The ongoing and ultimate justification. They sent 25,000 troops to the Capitol, built a wall around it, and now the rest begins. According to an official Defense Department memo signed on April 9th, less than a month ago by the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin himself, Bishop Garrison is now in charge of countering extremism working group.
