So this is what some of our top brass spends their time on – finding new ways to dumb down American soldiers with new ridiculous and in some ways frightening policies such as Operation Inclusion, which teaches that slogans such as “Make America Great Again” or “America First” is racist.
It’s hard for me to believe that this is the kind of policy that senior Army leadership approves of but then again we are living in strange times. I’m so grateful Fox New’s Tucker Carlson used his platform to call out the U.S. Army and the Pentagon for brainwashing our troops with this nonsense this summer.
Our men and women voluntarily join the military to serve our great nation. Many have given their lives, have been wounded in combat because they actually believe in putting America First. There is no shame in loving such a great nation. We are not perfect but we are a nation that has given people from all over the world a place to call home when their own nations have failed them.
We are nation that has stands for justice, equality and we have a Constitution and Bill of Rights that gives every man, woman and child equal footing to aspire to be more.
These Army teaching programs are a disgrace. They are also an attempt by an internal U.S. enemy to put America last.
These policies are an attempt to make our young American soldiers feel as though there is something wrong with America. They are inspired by the Pentagon’s political analysts, policymakers and many who have never set foot in a war zone.
As the wife of a retired wounded U.S. Army soldier, I reject these teachings and these frightening policies. What makes them so frightening is that there are people in power working to destroy our great nation from the inside and it’s not just outside enemy forces we should be concerned about.
Thanks to Tucker for calling these hypocrites out and for exposing them for what they are: a danger to our country.
Here’s a little of what Carlson had to say:
“This summer the U.S. Army’s Operation Inclusion instructed soldiers that Make America Great Again was a form of socially acceptable covert white supremacy,” Carlson said. “A presidential campaign slogan was White Supremacy according to the Army… now according to the Army’s Equity and Inclusion Agency, and yes they have one, the phrases All Lives Matter, American Exceptionalism and the celebration of Columbus Day are racist. This is from the Army, the people that should be protecting you.”

REPORT: China uses psychiatric institutions to suppress dissent
China has a vast network of psychiatric institutions that it uses to suppress dissent, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. The report compiled data found on 99 victims involved in 144 instances on involuntary hospitalizations in 109 institutions from 2015 through 2021. Of the 99 victims in the report, 80 were petitioners [i.e., those who file complaints against officials] and 14 were activists.
But this is hardly a new phenomenon. “China’s regime has been torturing, maiming, and killing dissidents and others in psychiatric facilities for seven decades,” said Gordon G. Chang, author of The Coming Collapse of China and The Great U.S.-China Tech War. “The only way to end the horrific abuse is to end the rule of the Communist Party.”
The report detailed especially harsh treatments, which include: forced medication (in 77 percent of cases), physical restraints on the bed (60 percent), beatings by staff or other patients (25 percent) and electroshock therapy (14 percent). Otherwise normally healthy people were given anti-psychotic and psychotropic medications, causing severe side effects like memory loss, insomnia and tremors. Electroshock therapy was often administered to the victims as they were fully conscious, rather than under anesthesia in small doses as would be clinically appropriate for certain patients. According to the report, “[Electroshock therapy] without anesthesia is not only unimaginably painful and frightening for the patient but carries serious side effects, including the risk of bone fractures, joint dislocation, muscle tears, disruption of the heart beat and lung damage.”
Family and friends are often used as weapons against the victims. They were not permitted to call or visit the victims in 76 percent of cases, which essentially makes these cases “enforced disappearances.” 11 percent of cases were committed with the assistance of family (either voluntarily or coerced by authorities). Family and friends who petition for the victim’s release are often faced with persecution, and involuntarily commitment themselves.
The peak of psychiatric detentions occurred from 2015 through 2016, which was around the same time as China’s “709 Crackdown” where the government persecuted hundreds of human rights lawyers.
Some of the detentions are rather draconian. As a petitioner who called for local authorities to investigate a robbery in his house, Zeng Jiping was detained for almost two years. For “live tweeting herself splashing paint over a portrait of Xi Jinping,” Dong Yaoqiong received 1 year, 4 months detention. Twenty-nine out of the 99 victims in the report were hospitalized more than once. In two-thirds of cases where data was known, the authorities did not perform a psychiatric evaluation, in direct violation of China’s Mental Health Law.
The report also gives the example of Andy Li, a member of the “Hong Kong 12” pro-democracy protestors, as falling victim to involuntary detention in Hong Kong’ Siu Lam Psychiatric Center in 2021. The report noted that, as Li’s family didn’t know about his detention, “Li’s cases appears to be a worrying sign that the political abuse of psychiatry practiced on the mainland is now being exported into Hong Kong…”
Those who are finally released from their involuntary committals face lasting physical and phycological pain, and stigma within their communities. People seeking damages for their treatment are often faced with doctors and attorneys who do not want to assist them for fear of retaliation from the government.
According to the report, China is using “peace and health asylums” and other healthcare institutions to “punish and remove activists and petitioners from society without the trouble of going through a trial.” While the report details various Chinese laws that are supposed to protect citizens from such involuntary hospitalizations, in reality Chinese authorities do not abide by these laws and the citizens are not protected. The policy of involuntary hospitalizations show the extent to which the Chinese Communist Party will go to suppress dissent.
