If any right wing activity exists at all, and I’m not convinced that it is, but if it is, I would suspect that it would exist at the lower ranks of the USA and USMC in very small pockets here and there.

So I agree with the OP. The Democrats, through the use of the DOJ, are trying to manufacture a boogeyman.

Not trying to turn this political, but they are the ones in charge right now, and they are the ones pushing this bizarre and false agenda, so they deserve to be called out for it.

Aspects of what CRT is all about is also being pushed all around me in ways that did not exist pre-2020. That’s an absolute fact whether people want to believe it or not. I refuse to participate in “take one step forward if you are a white male” BS.

Man, I’ve worked my ass off for 30 years, deployed over a dozen times, worked routine 72 hour weeks for decades. I’ve went whole months without a day off because the needs of the Air Force come first. I don’t want to hear any white privilege nonsense.

A handful of guys out of hundreds of thousands? Ok, whatever. Still doesn’t change the fact that I’ve never personally witnessed it, nor even known anyone who knew anyone involved in any activity such as that. I’ve met thousands of people during my career. My point is that there is no trend, there is no real problem.

Also, the one in California, I know a little about it as it was briefed to me by people in the know. There is more going on there than the story details, I’ll just leave it at that. You can believe what you want to believe.

If the other three did what they were alleged to have did, I’m glad they are out of uniform. But again, I have no information on those cases, and I’m certainly not stupid enough to believe media propaganda as my sole source.

Well there is General Flynn. So I suppose there are extremists going down rank to include junior officers and enlisted. Having said that I’m not convinced that the military is anything like a hot bed of extremism.

No he didn’t
You are attempting to change the narrative
And NEITHER in the military is good for America
But gang bangers likely have too much police history to join

US military falsely painted as a hotbed for extremists
False? Hardly. It starts at the top with the lunatic Milley. He's trying to turn the whole army into Bolshevists.

The military has traditionally been apolitical. We might have our political positions, but we studiously kept them to ourselves.

I consider any military person whose political position is so strong that he can't keep it to himself, but has to make it public, to be an extremist.
Like Milley.

I found a few extremists with military ties.

My, there are apparently extremists in the military’s past that have supported all types of causes. I’m sure one support E.L.F. (Earth liberation front) back in the 90’s that torched buildings and ski lodges.

The military should be trying to remove antifa and kkk members. It’s possible the recent 100 “discovered” military (out of million +) had both represented.

But what is not said is as important as what is said. Diplomacy 101.

When gen Milley was at a house meeting, he wasn’t even asked a question by a Congressman and interjected was wokeness by saying he didn’t know about white rage (or white guilt) and he was reading certain books. What he didn’t say was he is “EQUALLY CONCERNED” about military members being in antifa or blm or even gangs.

This absence speaks volumes when Milley could have vaulted his appearance to be apolitical.

If he did that, he would’ve been sent packing. The Democrats don’t mess around. You either become woke, or at least give the appearance of being woke, or you will be shown the door. That’s why he felt the need to do what he did, self preservation.

The explosion of overt wokeness in the military since Biden has taken over is permeating at every single level. I know, I see it everyday.

But these dudes are smart. They don’t take it too far, push too fast, it’s like they are stealthily moving the football forward.
