I imagine our woke military leadership thought they would benefit from the prior default support American normals had for “the military” when jumping into politics against @TuckerCarlson.

Except they failed to note how normals had been burned by other institutions previously. 1/
This is not 30, 20, 10 or even five years ago. Over the last two decades, normal Americans have found themselves attacked by every institution they had expected to protect them - academia, the media, the NFL... 2/
Even law enforcement betrayed them, in the form of kneeling cops & the FBI/DOJ cabal that tried to take down the man they elected President.

So normals were not naive and vulnerable - they were prepared to be betrayed when the woke .mil leadership abandoned its principles. 3/
The woke military leadership, in line with its 20 year history of failing to win wars, failed here to understand the cultural battlespace for its lame info op against a conservative icon.

It thought it could exploit our support for its political masters’ ends.

It was wrong. 4/
If our military can’t understand its own culture well enough to succeed, how can anyone expect it to understand China well enough to beat it?

It doesn’t. Woke .mil knows that. That’s why it wants to stifle such discussions. But it’s too inept to do it effectively. 5/
Time to view the military as liberal-occupied territory.

Time to abandon default support for its woke leaders.

Time for GOP pols to demand a return to standards, like tactical/strategic competence and strict non-politization.

Con media, hi-lite abuses! 6/
This way, we can set the stage for reform under a new President.

We can also make sure liberalism is properly assigned blame for the inevitable consequences of woke .mil leadership.

There will be a major defeat under Biden. America must understand why to repair the damage. 7/
None of this makes me happy to say.

Hesitating to recommend young Americans join this damaged institution - something many vets tell me they are experiencing too - is something I once could not imagine.

But fixing this demands tough love, high standards, and hard calls. 8/
We owe it to our troops & our country to demand nothing less than a military that is focused solely on deterring and winning wars, that is totally outside of politics, and that is dedicated not to one party or some alien faculty lounge ideology, but to the Constitution.

Out. 9/

Why to TV writers think we adore loud, stupid, emotion-driven female characters?
Exhibit A - that chick with bad hair in Ozark. I hated her. The plot was largely her getting mad, doing something, and causing chaos.
And we were supposed to think “Whoa, tuff girl getting it done sister!” No. Every time the character came on screen I went for my phone to check Twitter. And that grating voice…

You are getting at the correct premise, but we need to take it all the way.
Disney is not losing its (special) privilege because its CEO rolled over to the weirdos of the left in and out of the company and decried the anti-pervert bill. That might be a pure 1A issue. 1/
Disney is using both cultural and political power to impose a horrific agenda of bizarre gender madness and other leftist poison on us normal people. It is not just saying "Disney thinks such and such." It is imposing its prog vision on us. We must fight back or become serfs. 2/
Normal people have diffused economic power, but Disney has concentrated economic power that translates into political power. Disney uses its political power w/o apology. Yet we are somehow barred from using our greatest strength, political power, to fight Disney's offensive? 3/

Interesting thread.

This trend is bad news for these future lawyers. It seems trite, but they will never learn to argue when throwing tantrums because of their feelz is tolerated. If we retain a legal system based on argument, they will be lousy lawyers.

I go up against lousy lawyers all the time. They think shrieking about our position will let them win. Usually it doesn't. But what if it usually worked? What if they got the world they wanted, where the winner wins not by argument but by other means?

Their other means is pseudo-moral indignation and something close to violence. Many would not eschew real violence in theory. But do they imagine they would retain a monopoly on non-argumentative power assertion tools in that paradigm? Maybe for a while.

Although I’m pissed off at them right now, @TedCruz is one of the best lawyers in the country. 1/
And I want to see Cruz use some of those legal skills to defend the political prisoners being held unconstitutionally in Biden‘s prison. Whatever happened to the right to a speedy trial? 2/
If @TedCruz wants to get beyond this complete screwup, he redeems himself by using his formidable legal skills to vindicate the rights of persecuted Americans. 3/

So, does this vaxx fascism win Biden anything politically?

I think it’s yet another bonehead maneuver by the most politically tone-deaf administration since Hoover. 1/
Everybody who is turgid over vaccines has already got them. The vast majority of people who haven’t got vaxxed have a reason, and they’re going to resent being told they have to get one or starve. 2/
Biden will get the support of some portion of people who took the vaccine, mostly lib women, but he had that already. Who is this going to win over to him? What’s the name of the person who says “Yeah, I thought he was a dork before, but now I’m all in?” 3/

Americans are tired of faceless censors and algorithms preventing them from speaking freely…

GOP, how about a fed law that requires major social media companies like Facebook to … 1/
Before censoring, have a senior - really senior) Facebook officer personally (in ink) sign a written, specific, declaration that he/she/xe 1) personally reviewed the material proposed to be censored and determined it violates the TOS, and describe precisely how; and… 2/
And 2) declare the officer personally spoke (by phone) to the individual to resolve the issue before censoring.

Enforce it with lawsuits - per se damages, civil penalties, punitive, attorneys fees. Fed jurisdiction, of course. Yet states could try it too. @Eric_Schmitt
