Sorry, you don't make the cut.

Good point. When so Trump voters refuse to believe reports issued by the US government and instead believe those from the Kremlin and other foreign sources, recruits who still believe the big lieS should be throughly screened. 'Muh Russia' right wing 'Americans' continue to show their disdain for 'western' democracy while supporting global authoritarian states.

Stupidest thing I ever heard of and how will they do that? What nimrods these people are. People can say and adopt to any environment they choose or have any beliefs they want and no amount of screening is going to change that, these recruits will just give the answers they want in order to pass and get through any screening. Idiots, trying force people on how and what to believe in.

Smh....

“US Navy ‘extremism’ training says staff can advocate for BLM but not ‘politically partisan issues’”

yeah ok, sure. now even the military won’t address any actual issues due to fear of being called “racist”.

It’s funny that you think the only screening method is questionnaires.
