Military Diversity Officer Who Compared Trump to Hitler Reinstated After Pentagon Probe
LINK

A diversity officer in a branch of the U.S. military has been reinstated after an investigation into his social media posts, which included one missive comparing then-President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, uncovered no violations of Department of Defense policies.

In March, the U.S. Special Operations Command announced the hiring of Richard Torres-Estrada as its chief of diversity and inclusion. Shortly afterward, he was reassigned as officials investigated posts he’d made during the Trump administration, including one in which he made a comparison of Trump to Hitler.

That investigation recently wrapped up after finding no policy violation.

“Mr. Torres-Estrada has resumed the duties of the Chief of Diversity & Inclusion for United States Special Operations Command after a USSOCOM commander-directed investigation into the circumstances surrounding his hiring concluded and found no violations of law or DoD regulation,” a USSOCOM spokesman told news outlets.

“USSOCOM is confident in the hiring process and Mr. Torres-Estrada’s potential to fill this important position.”

Facebook posts reviewed by The Epoch Times show Torres-Estrada compared Trump to Hitler, who perpetrated the Holocaust. He also denigrated Trump on at least one other occasion.

In addition, Torres-Estrada posted an image expressing support for the radical theory of equity, which posits that an equal outcome among people is favorable to certain persons getting ahead of others.

USSOCOM told The Epoch Times in March that officials weren’t aware of the posts before hiring Torres-Estrada. The official wasn’t terminated immediately after the posts were discovered because actions involving civilian personnel are governed by federal law and other regulations, a spokesman said.

“Civilian employees have rights under those laws and regulations. When allegations are made about an employee, the command must determine what the facts are and what actions, if any, are appropriate under those laws and regulations before taking action,” he said previously.

Torres-Estrada didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Members of Congress had expressed surprise at Torres-Estrada’s hiring.

Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio) said he was shocked, asserting that the official’s comparison of Trump to Hitler “shows irredeemably poor judgment and the total inability to separate fact from fiction.”

“What do you think, will a ‘diversity and inclusion’ officer for our elite military units make America stronger? Or are China and Russia laughing at us?” Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.) said.

At least a couple R's are stating the obvious.

Dumping on the C-in-C like that is not proper. Civilian or not, his arse should have been gone.

So let’s get this straight

An officer in our military can get away with making these comparisons

A racist kunt at WAPO can threaten whitey with violence

Yet both still have their job


A war is brewin’ so hope everyone is ready

Worse is an officer who writes a book stating that Communism is bad, gets relieved.

Because the more elite an infantry/specops unit it, the more likely it is to be dominated by whites. There are high rates of minority enlistment, but not in the combat specialties. Commands have been pushing to get more minorities in SEALs, Rangers, Green Berets, 82nd Airborne, etc, for years now for the PR value, but without much success. The tremendous workload and brutal physical standards simply don't appeal to them, even with the elite status.

China and Russia aren’t the future targets of the military. The “diversity” officers views align with the future mission.

And they're all talk. These Republicans won't do a goddamn thing besides stand aside and act outraged. Massive pussies as usual.

If the left completely politicizes the military it's over and the totalitarian bastards know it.

The impending confrontation began to heat up in the late 50’-60’s ….the past 5 years have taken it up to brew temp. If there’s irrefutable evidence of election fraud in AZ I think shite starts to unravel and the possibility of mass civil unrest is likely.
