Why "Wokism" Threatens to Weaken Our Military

Published in Blog on May 20, 2022 by Jakob Fay

We live in a world of geopolitical turmoil. Today’s international political scene is heavily defined by tension and war: Vladimir Putin instigating Russian aggression, North Korea testing missiles belligerently and Iran becoming increasingly insolent in its threats towards the United States.

Now is the time for strength.

In an era when our government does so much it doesn't have the authority to do, it’s important to remember one of the things it does have the power to do–under Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution–is support our military.

The United States has many enemies and many seem to be unhappy with us right now, which means this is a crucial time to ensure the strength of our military should some threat be set against us.

Unfortunately, that’s not what our government is doing.

Instead, our military has made the less-than-clever decision to plunge headfirst into wokism.

According to Military.com, the United States Army is considering entitling soldiers with a “compassionate reassignment” policy, by which one can request to be relocated if he or she feels “discriminated” against.

“The policy would ostensibly sanction soldiers to declare that certain states are too racist, too homophobic, too sexist or otherwise discriminatory to be able to live there safely and comfortably,” one report explained. Specifically, it seems to be directed at LGBTQ “discrimintion.”

Clearly, such woke insanity is not in the best interest of the citizens of the United States. It seems the federal government is more concerned with pleasing far-left interest groups than keeping its people safe.

Should America ever find itself in a time of crisis, it matters very little whether or not our military is diverse or respects pronouns or lets soldiers use the bathroom of their choice; what actually matters is whether or not our military has the strength to protect this country from those who would do it harm.

This is what the American people want and need. Unfortunately, it seems wokism has blinded the federal government to that.

If we want to ensure that our federal government gets its priorities back in order, we must call a Convention of States. Too often, Washington D.C. is too preoccupied with the demands of the woke Left to pay any mind to We the People.

By using an Article V Convention, we can “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials,” hence guaranteeing that our government would once again focus on that which actually matters.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
