Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton stopped by Fox News’ The Faulkner Focus to discuss the latest woke nonsense being taught to the U.S. Air Force: Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do.
“Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,’” the presentation states. “Use words that include all genders: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’”
Cotton tells Faulkner this is not why Americans join the military and that the Biden Administration’s woke policies are killing recruitment.
“The Biden Pentagon looking for the cause of recruitment crisis is like OJ looking for the real killer,” Cotton says.

SEN. TOM COTTON: Young kids don’t join the military to learn how to use the right pronouns. They join the military to learn how to kill the bad guys and defend this country. And if the Biden administration wants to know why recruiting numbers have collapsed, why we have a recruiting crisis, they just need to look at their own policies. … The recruiting crisis is very dangerous for our country, and it will be dangerous for many years to come if we don’t turn it around quickly. … We need to turn the page at the Pentagon and make it clear to America’s young men and women that we want them to join the military because we want them to defend this country, not go to social justice training seminars.
