From West Point’s ‘Transgender Remembrance Day’ to the Army ROTC’s mandatory program forcing cadets to walk around in high heels, military training for future officers has turned into a ‘feminazi’ wet dream under the Obama regime. That is about to end…especially the funding of gender reassignment operations paid for by the military (which means the U.S. taxpayer)
Daily Caller The fourth annual Transgender Day of Remembrance was held Nov. 30, hosted by the U.S. Military Academy, Spectrum, a Gay/Straight Alliance Club, the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity with special assistance from the New York City Fire Department and FDNY EMS Fireflag. West Point celebrated the special remembrance day on Nov. 30 — the fourth time it has done so.
Though the event is promoted on its website, the commemoration passed without any notice by the establishment media, with coverage limited to the Academy’s newspaper, Pointer View, and sparse Facebook sharing.
The event complements other cultural initiatives in U.S. military colleges: the Virginia Military Institute is combating stress with coloring books and therapy dogs while Annapolis midshipman enroll in a “Transgender 101” seminar.
The transgender day is described by its founder, Gwendolyn Smith, as an “international day of action” and was originally envisioned by the graphic designer to memorialize the murder of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who died in Massachusetts in 1998.
Critics of the ceremony say it is another example of how politicians have “forgotten the mission of the military is to defend the country.”
Ray Starmann, editor-in-chief of U.S. Defense Watch, told The Daily Caller the transgender remembrance is caused by “social engineers who are cultural Marxists and guys at the top who won’t put their foot down” resulting in “more political correctness.”
Washington Times The Army openly encouraged participating in April’s “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” events in 2014, but now it appears as though ROTC candidates at ASU were faced with a volunteer event that became mandatory.
“Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling and a ‘does not support the battalion sharp/EO mission’ on our CDT OER for getting the branch we want. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow,” one anonymous cadet wrote on the social media sharing website Imgr, IJReview reported Monday.
