Woke for Peace

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

While I’ve enjoyed lampooning the idiocy implicit in wokery, I have to admit there might be an upside. The Toronto Star had an interview with General Wayne Eyre, top banana at the Canadian Armed Forces, in its Sunday paper. He was bemoaning the fact the CAF are short 10,000 uniformed personnel. In an attempt to make a CAF career more welcoming, he’s recently loosened up dress regs so the lads can wear skirts and makeup if the urge hits. In the interview, he extolls the CAF’s embrace of diversity, and can’t figure out why he can’t find 10,000 fresh recruits, kids who just want to obey orders. Dude, the folks who sign up for your diversity agenda aren’t likely to be keen on following orders! That would seem to be common sense, but you don’t see much of that at National Defence these days. A goodly slice of the civilian bureaucracy thinks the CAF’s top priorities should be rooting out systemic racism and misogyny. And while that’s commendable, it might not be quite the rallying point you’d want to base your esprit-de-corps on, at least if you’re expecting your military to give up their lives to defend the nation. As a life-long pacifist, I take comfort in the fact that our armed forces will soon consist of cross-dressers who don’t follow orders. I’m woke for peace!
