Default Military's main job … diversity?

Quote:

Michael A. Walsh, New York Post: Just when you think that our government can't get any sillier, along comes something like the Military Leadership Diversity Commission. The commission last week issued its completely unawaited report to call for, you guessed it, more diversity among military leadership. Not great fighting effectiveness, which should always be job No. 1. Not smarter leadership. Not braver fighting generals and fewer rear-echelon paper-pushers. It seems the problem is — wait for it — that the officer corps has too many white males. This, of course, will come as a shock to George Washington, George Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

From The Detroit News: Editorial Quick Hits: Other views | detnews.com | The Detroit News
Multiculturalism is a failure, but in this country failure seems to be an option, at least the liberal diversity crowd.

Multiculturalism isn't a success or a failure, it is a fact. We come from different backgrounds and cultures. Not complicated. So we should at least be mindful and respectful of others. That's not asking too damned much...

Diversity is Perversity. This multiculturalism thing will be the death of us, just like those little satelite state in the balkans, yugoslavia. We're headed that way. Multiculturalism is one of the stated goals of communism for this country. A sure fire way to divide the country. It's worked.

Actually, your facts are wrong... again...

The Russian state, the origin of communism, rejected diversity and willingly jailed those who refused to conform.

It's perverse to not admit we are already diverse.

you don't let multiculturalism or diversity set the standards in which we chose leaders. If they ain't qualified then they don't belong it's that simple. Ow, that still may to be to complicated for you liberals to understand...

Yeah, you're still not getting it. As much as you have tried over the years to lump me into some stupid group you've created in your head, it doesn't work muffin.

We should be choosing our leaders based upon their qualifications. Race and culture are not qualifications and thus should not be factors positively or negatively in the assessment of leadership.

Just because something is a fact, the abomination of diversity, doesn't make it societal acceptable. You're not very diverse. You are quite lacking in diversity of thought.

It's good that you feel this way. However, the Military Leadership Diversity Commission disagrees with you.

Diversity of thought is fine. Diversity of rights is not. All are created equal. You don't like a specific group, that's fine. That doesn't make them any more or less equal.

Diversity is not abomination, it is a gift. Thank God I don't refuse to think like you. Thank God I appreciate the differences in people. Thank God I don't want a bunch of drones running around complaining about people's differences.

And per our usual agreement, anyone who disagrees with me is wrong...
