“Woke Military”

In 2021, Gaetz attacked Joint Chiefs Chair, Gen. Mark Milley at an Armed Services Committee hearing over wokeness in the military. Gaetz’ comments were targeted at Gen. Milley and Sec. Lloyd Austin who was also at the hearing.

Gaetz posed questions about why the military has become so woke by studying popular theories discussed in America. The Florida congressman had reservations about why the US Armed Forces would bother about studying subjects like “whiteness” or “white rage”.

Gen. Milley and Sec. Austin hit back at Gaetz’s comments on woke culture in the military. Comments from the hearing set up heated debates across political lines on wokeness and where it should apply.

COVID and Obesity

Gaetz reacted to Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ban from Twitter for her anti-woke comments on obese people and COVID. His comment on the Jan. 27 ban of Greene’s handle is seen below:

In the comment, Gaetz also takes a swipe at CNN’s newsroom, labelling them “crooks and liars”. It’s no secret that CNN currently has a sympathetic stance towards woke culture in American society.

“I’m Embarrassed by Your Leadership”

Mr. Gaetz couldn’t said he was embarrassed by “military wokeism” and Lloyd Austin’s leadership of the Department of Defense (DoD).

At an April 2022 House Armed Services hearing, Gaetz attempted to point out the DoD’s alleged promotion of several topics among servicemen.

Some topics he pointed out are critical race theory, socialism, mandatory pronoun training, etc. He attributed this alleged focus of the DoD on these subjects squarely on Sec. Austin.

And this isn’t the first time Gaetz has taken aim at Lloyd Austin on the wokeness subject among US veterans. In 2021, Gaetz said Austin may be the “stupidest person” ever to serve in a US presidential cabinet.

Most negative comments from Gaetz targeting high-ranking military officials largely focuses on wokeism among service members.
