Tag: That PC culture is doing harm

That’s not what he said…

I was reading Navy Times article titled “Decorated SEAL Rob O’Neill supports women in special operations” because I was surprised to hear anyone outside of the PC crowd claiming this was a good idea, and as I suspected, the title of the article was bogus. Why do I say that? Here is the opening paragraph:

Former Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Rob O’Neill said on Tuesday that he supports women joining the nation’s elite special operations teams, becoming the highest-profile special operations veteran to support the controversial effort.

If you read only that opening paragraph and the article’s title, you get the impression that O’Neil is bucking top brass and going against the trend and pushback from the SPECOPS commanders. The article even makes that claim:

O’Neill voiced his support, bucking the trend of high-ranking officers, special operators and other combat veterans decrying the move.

Except, that’s not even close to the truth. What follows is the critical point:

“If they don’t lower the standards and they can pass them, sure,” he said.

And that’s the critical item here. Most SPECOPS operators, and I suspect O’Neil as well, have no doubt that no women will pass with todays standards in place. What he said after that one comment is all crap to cover his own ass from the idiot PC crowd which has made a habit out of destroying those that get in their way.

The truth is that the commanders that are voicing concerns about this mandate have legitimate reasons for their gripe. They have seen a separate set of much lower standard be created, by congressional fiat, to accommodate the fact even the basic standards would have resulted in the exclusion of all but a handful of women (biology and reality will not bend to anyone’s PC fantasies), and they are under no delusion that these PC idiots will do the same to the SPECOPS programs, resulting in the loss of life.

Liberalism is about bucking reality, and then, when things go wrong, blaming others for that problem. Me, I suspect that the fucking PC assholes pushing for this know exactly what they are doing: degrading the effectiveness of SPECOPS programs and setting up an incident where Americans will be forced to view some brutal and ugly death scene and turn even more risk averse. This is all part and parcel of that fundamental change that turns America and the things that keep America on top into shit.

I do not for a second believe that if these SPECOPS groups actually open doors to women, with the same standards men have to pass in place, that when no woman can pass the brutal regime, the standards for women will end up lowered by order of the PC police. The PC police will then claim victory, and pretend that despite them lowering standards, some level of equality exists where it doesn’t. Nature and biology are a bitch, and we ignore reality at our own peril. Men and women can be do the same things in many spaces, but when it comes to pure physical strength and the ability to endure extreme physical punishment, there is an undeniable difference.

Pussified services and all that.

Man, every time you think that the bullshit PC environment can’t do more damage than it already has to the military services, you get stories like this one, and you realize the sad state of affairs:

Everyone at khaki call thought it was a joke.

But when a chief on the destroyer Jason Dunham told the assembled chiefs and officers that he was going to line up residents in two female berthings and make them march human feces down the pier to portable toilets, he was serious.

The chief was irate because the toilets in both women’s berthings had been used even though the ship’s sewage system was turned off for repairs during an overhaul, according to a Navy report.

The chief intended the task to teach the women a lesson in following orders and being considerate towards those whose job it is to fix the toilets. But to investigators, it crossed the line into humiliation and hazing that should have been stopped.

The Naval Surface Force Atlantic investigation found Cmdr. Kenneth Rice and Command Master Chief (SW/AW) Stephen Vandergrifft failed to take immediate corrective action when they had enough information to know lines had been crossed. Both lost their jobs. Officials pulled Rice’s command qualification and gave Vandergrifft nonjudicial punishment.

The report found that the decision to force 19 women, all E-6 and below, to clean feces out their toilets was an unsafe act of hazing. Navy Times obtained the roughly 250-page report via the Freedom of Information Act. Officials removed all names and titles except those of Rice, Vandergrifft and Cmdr. Michael Meredith, the ship’s commanding officer.

The incident was several days in the making, the report found.

The investigation found there were prior incidents of people using toilets that couldn’t be flushed, and each time a member of the ship’s repair division — damage controlmen and hull technicians — had to clean it up. The week before the incident, a sailor received the CO’s approval to make residents of the offending berthings help the hull techs clean up.

WTF? If these women are shitting where they shouldn’t, and this is the umpteenth time of this brown bombing exercise, I think this Chief had the right idea. If these stupid women can’t follow orders, they need to be disciplined, and shame is a lot less painful than some of the other shit they used to do back when this sort of bullshit would never have been tolerated. If you think you are too good for the “hold your shit” order, then don’t be surprised when you have to carry your shit out in a bucket.

Heck, if we were still into shaming bad behavior, we would have less of it. This would go doubly so about the shenanigans from our political class. In the meantime, the military is becoming more of a nanny service than a fighting force. I sure hope these sailors never have to face some real hardship, cause the pussified NAVY sure isn”t getting them ready for it.
