There is a crisis of confidence in no less than the U.S. Marines, one of America’s premier military forces, thanks to the upper brass and its obsession with Biden’s left-wing race training.

According to reports, the current commandant and the man set to replace him are up to their leather necks in pushing the left’s racist Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training on the Corps while slacking off on actual military training.

Many are wondering why the Corps needs DEI programs at all? On top of this mess, Biden’s commandants are also pushing a new military strategy that critics say will be a significant failure if it is ever used in battle.

Biden’s current commandant is Gen. David Berger, who is set to finish his stint in the Corps and is preparing to retire. Biden is set to give the general’s job to assistant commandant Gen. Eric Smith. But the air is of a mind and has worked in tandem to push the absurd DEI training on the Marine Corps.

First, Berger was criticized for eliminating the Corp’s entire tank supply. The Gen. says modern weaponry makes tanks obsolete.

But, according to Just The News, he is under a cloud for so much more.

Under Berger, the Marine Corps got rid of “21% of the personnel in infantry battalions, 100% of the tanks, 67% of the cannon artillery batteries, 33% of the assault amphibious companies, nearly 30% of Marine aviation, and almost all assault breaching equipment,” retired Marine combat veteran Francis “Bing” West, wrote last month for the Hoover Institution.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich recently cited the West article in an essay in which he further argues the cuts were made “for a stunningly stupid investment in a land based anti-ship mission against China that will not work.”

“It is competitive rather than complementary with the Navy and Air Force, and it is a scandalous misallocation of Marine resources. Inserting by sea three or four small Marine units, with no support, on atolls in the South China Sea invites capture and defeat,” Gingrich also says.

In April 2022, more than two dozen retired generals came out against Berger’s plan, arguing the radical shift in focus for the Marine Corps is inadequate to meet the requirements for the military branch.

It isn’t just Gingrich. An entire group of generals have come out to criticize the plan.

Berger has also pushed DEI nonsense very heavily.

In March, Berger made his case for supporting DEI initiative, saying,”At the end of the day, the goal is to make sure that the unit is prepared for combat. That’s why we have a Marine Corps – to try and prevent a conflict, and if one comes, to make sure that we win it. So, building cohesive teams is part of that. I have seen zero evidence of any policies that detract from that.”

Berger’s comments were in response to GOP lawmakers who wrote a report in November 2022 that criticized DEI programs in the military.

Sen. Marco Rubio, of Florida, and Rep. Chip Roy, of Texas, released the report, which in part stated: “Our military’s singular purpose is to ‘provide for the common defense’ of our nation. It cannot be turned into a left-wing social experiment. It cannot be used as a cudgel against America itself. And it cannot be paralyzed by fear of offending the sensibilities of Ivy League faculty lounges or progressive pundits.”

The report also noted several situations in which anti-white views were pushed by military members and sex-reassignment surgeries for transgender service members being paid for with taxpayer dollars.

“Rather than making the case for American greatness and protecting our nation, the military is parroting woke nonsense,” Rubio told Fox News at the time.

But Berger has been undaunted and even claimed he would cashier Marines out of the Corps if they disagreed with his radical, racist DEI policies.
