Army Soldiers Forced to Sit Through ‘White Privilege’ Presentation — and Many are Erupting Online

This is your military on Obama.

The U.S. Army says it is investigating what it calls an “unauthorized” diversity training presentation on “White privilege” that was shown to hundreds of soldiers, USA Today reported, citing an Army spokeswoman.

But some critics don’t buy the explanation, saying this is just the latest in a series of incidents in which radical race, sex or gender identity theories were forced upon our soldiers.

The so-called “Equal Opportunity” training presentation was shown to about 400 soldiers of the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Georgia on Thursday, according to Captain Lindsay Roman.

But there wasn’t anything “equal” about its approach — as it singled out White Army soldiers.

The portion of the program involved a slide projected on a screen entitled ”The Luxury of Obliviousness,” which listed elements of “White privilege.”

“Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. ‘To be white in American (sic) means not having to think about it,’” one bullet point read.

After an image of the slide was posted to a Facebook page, the reaction was a lot more than the Obama indoctrinators bargained for:

That should be instant UCMJ and Dishonorable Discharge for the instructor who deviated in this manner,” George Stevens wrote.

Pretty sick of hearing about white privilege. Nearly my entire chain of command and NCO support channel have been Hispanic or black since I joined,” Tim Wilson Jr. added.

True story: I went to a forced EEO class and the white female SSG said we white folks were a problem. I looked around the room and everyone of every race were rolling their eyes,” Scott Hampton Truelove recalled. “We of all races went fishing, eating out, having BBQs, went to the club, together. We all never had a problem with race. We as a group stood up and walked out. She was cutting into our beer drinking time.”

Captain Roman said the instructor was “out of line”.

“The unit (Equal Opportunity) instructor deviated from the authorized topic and content which was provided,” Roman told USA Today. “To prevent further instances, all unit instructors will receive additional training on the importance of following Army EO training requirements.”

But as FoxNews.com noted, those very “EO requirements” have been the subject of racial controversy in the past:

The Equal Opportunity Advisor Student Guide, which was used to train EO instructors during a 3-month course at Patrick Air Force Base, also explicitly discussed the topic of white privilege.

A controversial 600-plus page manual used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that “healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian” men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called “White Male Club.

“Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege,” reads a statement in the manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).

So if you believe the Army seminar in Georgia was unauthorized, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
