WATCH: Pentagon Spox Calls Fox Anchor’s Wokeness in the Military Question ‘Ridiculous’

Fox News has been warning its viewers about the topic of wokeness for years. But when Conservatives try to bring this argument up to people who know what they are talking about, it doesn’t go far. Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley went viral last summer after blasting the ‘wokeness’ critique.

Still, Fox host Dana Perino decided to push the issue again when she had to opportunity to speak to John Kirby. She asked the Pentagon spokesperson, “Some criticism in the U.S. military, that perhaps there’s too much of a leftward tilt, or a wokeness in our military when we face really determined adversaries, committed adversaries in China, Russia, Iran, who maybe don’t have those same kind of pressures. How do you respond to those criticisms?”

“I think a lot of it, quite frankly, is driving a stake through a straw man here,” Kirby responded. “This argument of wokeness in the military, I was in the military for 30 years, and I can tell you things like diversity and inclusion, that makes us a better military because it brings to the fore, in the decision-making, operational decision-making, that we conduct better ideas, more unique perspectives. Somebody else’s lived experiences which might actually make us smarter on the battlefield.”

The spokesperson continued, “So those kinds of arguments — I think are ridiculous. because we are stronger military because of our diversity, and because we represent all Americans, just like we defend all Americans.”
