Trump criticizes ‘woke generals,’ knocks critical race theory in first rally since 2020 election

Former President Donald Trump blasted the “woke” military during his rally in Ohio on Saturday night, who he said are too focused on teaching critical race theory to recruits.

He accused generals of being more concerned with “woke” policies “than they are their enemies.” “The Biden administration issued new rules pushing twisted critical race theory … into our military,” Trump told several thousand supporters gathered at the Lorain County Fairgrounds. “Our generals and our admirals are now focused more on this nonsense than they are on our enemies.”

“You see these generals lately on television? They are woke,” he said. “Our military will be incapable of fighting and incapable of taking orders,” Trump predicted — imagining a future private refusing to comply with a general’s order. “That private’s going to tell the general, ‘Don’t you ever speak to me that way, general — I’ll kick your ass,’” Trump said.

“That’s our military, that’s where we’re going. Woke.” On Wednesday, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, defended critical race theory — the idea that racism pervades all of American society — and its use in the West Point curriculum before the House Armed Services Committee.
