Air Force Academy Forces Students to Watch Pro-BLM Video

by Eric Lendrum


The newest class of cadets at the United States Air Force Academy, as part of their education, are being forced to watch a video that is supportive of the far-left domestic terrorist organization Black Lives Matter, Fox News reports.

The video in question portrays a fictional situation where a mixed-race student named Jose, who has a Nigerian mother and a Mexican father, is pressured into attending a Black Lives Matter rally on his campus by two of his friends. A third friend tries to convince him to not go, instead suggesting that “all lives matter” is a better slogan, since “black lives matter” would suggest to Jose that his mother’s life matters more than his father’s.

At that point, the video is to be paused by the instructor, and students are asked to choose from three different answers that Jose should give; every single answer is critical of the friend and supportive of Black Lives Matter, and in any case, Jose responds by saying that his friend’s comments are “problematic” and “insensitive.”

It was confirmed by the Academy’s Chief of Media Relations, Dean Miller, that the video is, in fact, “required training for inbound cadets (appointees) ahead of their arrival to the U.S. Air Force Academy.” The video is part of the broader far-left initiative by the Biden Administration to implement “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) training throughout the United States Armed Forces. DEI is one of several branches of the broader notion of Critical Race Theory, the debunked claim that all White people are automatically racist, and that America is an inherently racist nation.

After facing growing backlash over multiple similar trainings across different branches, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin lied under oath before Congress and claimed that the Department of Defense does not “teach,” “embrace,” or otherwise support Critical Race Theory. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley has claimed that he doesn’t even know what Critical Race Theory is, but reaffirmed that he supports the idea nevertheless.

    CRT correctly defined means “creating racial tension” and that is exactly what is occurring. I find it so interesting the most committed CRT proponents are not black. It is really the woke politicos who believe taking this position will garner them one more vote. Pathetic…..

    Appalling! 100% more honor these days in serving your local militia than a fraudulent tyrannical federal government. God bless our veterans of past service but if you enter military service today you are a clown serving evil.

    A classic example of why politics shouldn’t be part of any military training.
    Patrisse Khan-Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter and a self-described “trained Marxist,” The majority of the recent involvements of the Black Lives Movement have ended up in violent riots which has caused millions in the destruction private and commercial property as well as several deaths.
    In my 20 years of service I have seen the negative results when politics get involved in military missions.
