Human Events: Battalion Commander Reportedly Tells Troops….
‘White People Are Part of the Problem’
quote:

Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Rhodes, commander of the 1-8 Infantry – “Fighting Eagles“, has a message for all serving in the military: if you’re white, you’re the problem.

It was recently discovered that Rhodes, who holds a position of authority and responsibility, runs a private, “woke,” left-wing Twitter account under the name “Dru.”

If the Twitter account wasn’t enough to convince you of his radical beliefs, his comment at a military function should do the job.

“If you’re a white male, you are part of the problem,” Rhodes reportedly said.

He also reportedly added that only .01 percent of racist accusations are false, and that he would always believe someone coming forward about an uncomfortable situation.

The story began circulating on social media, with one Instagram post catching some important attention.

“Looks like Fort Carson got themselves a real gem of an unbiased commander,” the post reads. “I hope you’re not white or ever accused of anything while you’re in his command. You’re already guilty and you didn’t even know it!”

The post caught the eye of the current Sergeant Major of the Army, Michael A. Grinston.

“Looking more into this,” he wrote. “Thanks.”

“If it’s true he said that ‘if you’re a white male you’re part of the problem’ then he’s creating division within his formation, and it’s the exact opposite of what the Army has been trying to do with inclusion efforts,” an active duty Army officer told Human Events. “Inclusion is for everyone, and is not discriminatory with regard to race, gender, sexual preference, or any other characteristic. It appears he has lost trust from many of his subordinates on day 1.”

According to sources, via message screenshots posted to Instagram, a full investigation is reportedly underway.

That’s good considering the front line troops are mainly white, Asian, and Hispanic.

Left the white non capital to appease the woke fruit cakes.

Infantry?

This is not good, not good at all.

Unit cohesion? Trust in leadership? How is that going to work out.

Let's keep an eye on this one. I suspect that the Secretary of Defense and POTUS will have no problem with this Officer.

I remember when men like Nathan Sassaman, who thought people trying to kill his Soldiers were the problem, commanded 1-8.

15-6 has to happen first.

For those that have not looked at the Twitter link, LTC Rhodes has deleted his Twitter account.

Bottom line, in my opinion there will be a 15-6 and he will get a slap on the wrist but remain in command. Just my two cents.

If that happens, look for the 4th ID IG to get hit with so many complaints they will think they are under a DDoS attack.

If the Drinkwines didn't get away with what they did 10 years ago why would this slide?

I'm wondering how he got through BCAP.

If he’s not careful he’ll create his own Pyle.

Are these people purposely trying to incite a race war? They should be in prison for saying such garbage

CelticDog, C on Z and the rest think this guy should be promoted to General ASAP. That’s what they voted for.

The infantry is like 99% white guys. I know this, I'm half Filipino and was in the infantry for 3 and a half years.

Made lifelong brothers in the infantry.

You answered your own question brother. Ten years of difference. And an administration that has politicized the military.

You and me both. Would loved to have seen his Twitter before he deleted it.
