(AbsoluteNews.com) – Most Americans who have an ounce of common sense would agree: Socialism has no place here. One would expect the Pentagon to agree, especially considering US troops have been involved with trying to prevent socialism from spreading to the country. But it seems the top military brass have forgotten their mission.
On Wednesday, February 16, the Pentagon held an event titled, “Responding to China: The Case for Global Justice and Democratic Socialism.” The event, which was hosted by the National Defense University’s Institute for National Strategic Studies, was open to the public and made “the case for global justice and democratic socialism.”
French Economist Thomas Piketty argued Western countries can’t stick to their “lecturing posture and a dated hyper-capitalist model,” if they want to beat China. He believes a new form of socialism is the key to combating the rise of Beijing.
Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) slammed President Joe Biden for politicizing the Pentagon.
President Biden continues to politicize our military, an institution rooted in AMERICAN ideals, not partisan ones.
This is disgusting and disheartening. https://t.co/mcpEdmt11i

Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) believes the military is becoming “more political than ever” at a time when the world is becoming less stable. He thinks the Pentagon’s focus should be on keeping Americans safe from terrorism. Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) spoke out on Tuesday, saying the Biden administration is more worried about “promoting its Leftist social agenda in the military” than it is about keeping the country safe from Iran, China and Russia.
What do you think about the Pentagon hosting an event on socialism?
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
