Lombardi Condemns Wokeness In U.S. Military

U.S. Military Purpose Is To Fight and Win Wars Not For Social Experiments


Manhattan, IL/June 8, 2021 –Today, Jack Lombardi, Republican Congressional candidate for Illinois’ 16th  Congressional District condemned the movement by Democrats to bring ‘wokeness’ to the United States military.  Lombardi blasted the Biden Administration for providing gender reassignment surgery for active service military personnel.  How does sex change surgery make the United States military stronger, Lombardi asked.  The purpose of the United States military to defend the United States, and fight and win wars, Lombardi pointed out, not to be used for social experiments but that is what the Biden Administration is doing.  The Biden Administration’s identity politics which it has brought to the United States military has made our nation the laughingstock to the world with adversaries like Russia and China actually running advertisements mocking it.  Lombardi said wokeness in the military would endanger both our military personnel and our nation’s safety.  Lombardi noted out military veterans, Tom Cotton, Brian Mast, and Dan Crenshaw have spoke out about it, yet Adam Kinzinger, also a veteran, has been silent about it.  While Kinzinger has been on MSNBC and CNN constantly attacking fellow Republicans, he has been totally silent about the Biden Administration’s move to bring wokeness to the United States military. 

 “Our military has been the safeguard for democracy and freedom since its very establishment,” said Jack Lombardi.  “Its purpose is to fight and win wars, not to be a guinea pea for social experiments by the far left.  Yet that is exactly what the Biden Administration is doing and it must be stopped. 

 “Unlike Adam Kinzinger I will oppose wokeness in our military,” concluded Jack Lombardi.  “I am more concerned with representing the people and the values of the Sixteenth District and ensuring a strong America, than being the darling of CNN and MSNBC.”
