New Pentagon diversity chief ‘reassigned’ after comparing Trump to Hitler in online post



Richard Torres Estrada

The new chief of diversity and inclusion for U.S. Special Operations Command is under investigation for offensive past social media posts, including one that compared former President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, Fox News is reporting.

The Defense Department announced the hiring of Richard Torres-Estrada last week, writing that they looked forward to his “contribution in enhancing the capabilities and effectiveness of [Special Operations Forces] through diversity of talent, helping us recruit the best of the best.”

Soon after the announcement, past social media posts resurfaced, including a photo of Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler photoshopped next to each other holding bibles. Torres-Estrada posted it on June 2, 2020.

Pentagon press secretary John Kirby confirmed the investigation of Torres-Estrada during a Monday press briefing. Torres-Estrada has been “reassigned” amid the investigation.

“Obviously, we take the need to promote diversity and inclusion seriously here in the department,” Kirby said. “The secretary has spoken to that many times. And we certainly want that work to be transparent, to be credible, to be effective, and of course professional.”

Torres-Estrada’s Facebook profile is not currently viewable to the public, however, Fox News host Tucker Carlson included screen-grabs of some of his posts during “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Friday.

“The Pentagon is now the Yale faculty lounge, but with cruise missiles. That should concern you,” Carlson said, adding that the U.S.’s military leadership has gone “woke.”

“His Facebook page gives some indication of who he is,” Carlson said. “On it you will find an attack on the police as racist, you’ll find crude BLM propaganda, you will find a photograph of Donald Trump holding a bible in front of a church. Next to Trump is a photograph of Adolf Hitler.”

“This is the guy who now oversees hiring for the Navy Seals,” Carlson said. “This is the initiative that Richard Torres-Estrada will be running.”

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity from the picket line after President Joe Biden’s “brief” few minutes of support with the United Auto Workers strike in Michigan. Biden spent a “whopping 12 minutes with those UAW workers outside the plant today” said Carter.

“And I can tell you the time I spent with hundreds of workers walking up and down that line it was stunning to see how they had turned on the administration none of them actually bought the visit they thought it was more political than it was supportive” she added about her discussions with workers on the ground.

“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.

Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
