The Military-Wakeness of 2020

Democrats vs. the military: wokeness won’t win wars and keep America safe

by Michael Boldin

America’s military is a symbol of our liberties. It protects us from enemies at home and our allies from those they’re fighting against in a foreign land, and helps to keep the balance of power in the world. But lately, we’ve been seeing a growing trend to diminish soldiers’ voices and role in our democracy.

On the home front, it is now common for people to be arrested for having opinions on politics, with people accused of making “disturbing” postings on social media. In August 2017, a police officer fired a gun at an anti-abortion protester in front of the Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. In 2018, the sheriff of Harris County, Texas, fired two deputies after they were accused of violating department rules by participating in a rally with supporters of the Texas Observer.

And now, on Capitol Hill, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has been accused of sexual assault. She has denied any criminal wrongdoing. But the woman making the accusation is still suing her for defamation.

That is the future America is headed to, unless we find a way to stop it. And the best, most effective way to do that is to elect more, not fewer, Democratic presidential candidates who will speak out against political correctness, and fight for the rights of our military and the civil rights of our citizens.

The first step of preventing the military-wokeness is to elect a Democratic president. Our two most promising challengers in 2020 are Cory Booker and Marianne Williamson, respectively. We can’t afford the luxury of two more Republicans vying to be our president.


Booker is leading in some polls for the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, but only needs 33 percent of the vote to ensure victory. The senator from New Jersey has been outspoken on his support for the military and his opposition to Trump and the GOP agenda.
