It’s becoming increasingly clear that Joe Biden’s Marxist handlers are looking to transform the Pentagon from the last bastion of apolitical patriotism into a fully ‘woke’ and politicized institution of the left.
The latest evidence: The Biden Defense Department’s choice of who to lead the U.S. Special Operations Command’s office of diversity and inclusion (yes, there really is such an office — because we can’t conduct highly secretive special operations against threats to our national security unless we can do it equitably, with all ethnic groups equally represented).
But that’s not even the worst of it: The man chosen to lead this office once referred to former President Donald Trump as a “Nazi.”
The Daily Caller notes:
U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), which directs counterterrorism and unconventional warfare operations for the military, announced Thursday that Richard Torres-Estrada took over on March 1 as chief of the Diversity & Inclusion unit.
The Pentagon recently formed the unit as part of its push for more diversity in its ranks and chain of command.
USSOCOM welcomes our new Chief of Diversity & Inclusion, Mr. Richard Torres-Estrada. We look forward to his contribution in enhancing the capabilities and effectiveness of #SOF through diversity of talent, helping us recruit the best of the best. #QuietProfessionals pic.twitter.com/Z6aJnz91mx

Shortly after SOCOM’s announcement, Torres-Estrada’s garbage social media posts began to circulate online, including the Nazi reference:
As he opened his Friday program, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reamed the Pentagon for a raft of left-wing PC policies implemented since Biden took over as the claimed commander-in-chief, but especially the hiring of Torres-Estrada.
“If you’re wondering whether our military leadership has gone woke, consider that question settled for good. The Pentagon is now the Yale faculty lounge but with cruise missiles,” he noted.
“The one thing we know about that plan is it will result in the dramatic lowering of standards within our elite ranks. It probably already has,” he added. “How will that make America safer? The generals never said. You couldn’t find that on the website. Instead, they explained that ‘all of us understand that diversity and inclusion are operational imperatives.’ They didn’t say how, they just said they’re imperatives. This is the operation that Richard Torres-Estrada will be running.”
According to the Daily Caller, Torres-Estrada’s social media accounts indicate that he has held a number of ‘diversity’ positions within federal government agencies, though his most recent position was as an equal employment opportunity official with the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority.
So he’s very well-schooled and experienced in how the left uses discriminatory practices to claim they are being unbiased and non-discriminatory when making hiring decisions.
“The question is: Who exactly is Richard Torres-Estrada? His Facebook page gives us some indication of who he is. On it, you’ll find an attack on the police, you’ll find crude BLM propaganda, you’ll find a picture of Donald Trump holding a Bible in front of a church,” Carlson continued.
“Next to Trump is a photograph of Adolf Hitler. The point is, they’re the same. So, this is the guy who now oversees hiring for the SEALs,” he added.
After ticking off a litany of examples where the Pentagon is demonstrating it is now much more concerned with ‘equity’ that combat effectiveness, Carlson quoted Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) who spoke during a House Armed Services Committee hearing last week: “How long until MAGA hats are considered an extremist symbol? How long until Catholic or pro-life groups or those who believe in two genders are too extreme for the ruling Woke-topians? Today is about nothing more than cancel culture coming for our military and it is disgusting.”
