So maybe our woke military is not so woke after all.
We know Secretary Austin is pushing diversity, but that push only goes so far.
This week, the Pentagon ordered drag shows on a military base to be shut down.
Only Goes So Far
It would appear that not even Secretary Austin believes drag shows are appropriate for kids.
On Wednesday, the Defense Department ordered the cancellation of a drag show that had been scheduled for Thursday.
The event was to take place at the Nevada Air Force Base.
Deputy Press Secretary for the Pentagon, Sabrina Singh, broke the news.
She stated, “The DOD will not host drag events at U.S. military installations or facilities.
“Hosting these types of events in federally funded facilities is not a suitable use of DOD resources.”
The Air Force confirmed, “The Air Force will not host drag events at its installations or facilities.
“Commanders have been directed to either cancel or relocate these events to an off-base location.”
But I am confused.
Would this not be a great opportunity for our military members to understand the drag culture more by attending these shows?
I am just curious why the White House has not been as critical of the Department of Defense for shutting down these shows as it has been Republicans.
