Yes, I've had to take the military's "extremism" training

 And yes, it's a gigantic load of shit, written by people who are obviously leftists and who only see boogymen from the Right.

On Thursday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) revealed the reports of many whistleblowers inside the armed forces who have complained that the military’s training to combat “extremism” has enabled superiors to push critical race theory (CRT) on them. This has set members of the military against one another and led some soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and guardians to resign.

Cotton pressed Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on these issues, asking Austin to explicitly condemn some of the conclusions of critical race theory, such as the idea that the military itself is “fundamentally racist.” Austin begrudgingly rejected that idea, but his responses suggest an unwillingness to actually combat CRT in the military.

They don't just use Critical Race Theory.  They talked about "abortion-related extremis" and "violent INCEL extremists".  I shit you not.  Part of the training stated that at least eleven people have been murdered by "violent anti-abortion extremists" since 1999.

Not one single word about Buy Large Mansions or Antifa.  Not a statement, not a codicil, nothing.  Not one single word about the violent riots, murders, looting and arson that happened all last year.

Welcome to the Leftist paradise, comrade.  The only good thing I can say about the entire episode is that every single person I talked to, no matter the rank, knew that the entire training was a load of bullshit.  From Private to Colonel, no one thought this training was worth the time, effort or electrons.
