After reading this
quote:

A controversial 600-plus page manual used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that "healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian" men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called "White Male Club."

"Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege," reads a statement in the manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).



I went to the whole thing here and saw this, which explains a lot
quote:

I obtained a copy of the manual from an Equal Opportunity officer who was disturbed by the course content and furious over the DEOMI's reliance on the Southern Poverty Law Center for information on "extremist" groups.


SPLC, the same bunch that labeled the Tea Party and Religious people terrorists.

Col West's take is interesting as well:

quote:

"This is the Obama administration's outreach of social justice into the United States military," he told me. "Equal Opportunity in the Army that I grew up in did not have anything to do with white privilege."

West said he is very concerned about the training guide.

"When the president talked about fundamentally transforming the United States of America, I believe he also had a dedicated agenda of going after the United States military," he said. "The priorities of this administration are totally whacked."

West said the DEOMI manual reminded him of a similar program inflicted on the military by President Clinton.

"They came down with a new training requirement called, 'Consideration of Others Training,'" he said. "The soldiers were supposed to sit around and go through vignettes and talk about their feelings."

The handiwork of the odumbass administration.

I am sure the soldiers see this as the bull shite that it is and just roll their eyes.

And

Oprah has actually done pretty well for herself.

Oprah is a....HOMO! I'm shattered! No way...an Obama operative character-assignation hit because she bailed on him.

I've learned more about equal opportunity and sexual harassment than I have about killing people in the past few years.

Does it say why?
Is it because whites males are smarter, stronger, better shooters, swimmers? Pretty sure its not running.

Not meant to hijack but I'm convinced that all the eo/sexual harrasment & suicide prevention classes are actually causing the problems.

I don't often throw out the word RACIST, but this is actual racism. Not the race card, not bigotry, or prejudice, but dictionary definition RACISM. I would also like to note that it is being perpetrated by those that claim to want to help.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Who wouldn't want a military that consists of black, homosexual, atheist females in poor health? I would hope our military gets rid of all people in poor health, whether they have advantages or disadvantages of social privilege. It is insane to think such a class of individuals shouldn't be discriminated against in the military.

I'm curious why there is no mention of education creating unfair advantages, or criminal convictions creating unfair disadvantages. I guess they must be fair advantages or disadvantages.

Why do they add healthy and unhealthy? I would rather a healthy person fighting for my country than an unhealthy person any day.

If my house is on fire and I am unconscious I want a strong fireman to be able to carry me to safety, not some 100lb women who didn't have to meet the same requirements as the men. To hell with political correctness.

I'd like to know what the end game is for the people who want to regulate equality. At what point have we achieved it? Its a very subjective concept. You will almost never find two individuals with the exact same qualifications and background.

West is full of crap, I went on AD before him and the military was pushing EO and establishing quotas for minorities for years. This is not new, it sucks, but it isn't just Obama it has been institutional policy for many decades.
