The Biden administration’s ongoing overhaul of the military in order to instill leftist cultural values in service members has spurred the U.S. Navy to make a dramatic change in how it prepares recruits for duty by extending basic training by two weeks with a focus on issues including racism.
Starting this year, boot camp will go from the traditional eight weeks to ten with the additional time devoted to improving warfighting and emergency skills as well as training on extremism, suicide prevention, sexual assaults, and of course, race.
Rear Admiral Jennifer S. Couture who heads up the Naval Service Training Command says that the extra two weeks are meant to implement what she called a “reinforcing mechanism” involving “life skills” as well as how to respond to emergencies such as fires and collisions.
“We’re telling our recruits … here are all of the things that we expect you to do, and here’s how we expect you to behave and act,” she said, according to a report by the Associated Press. “We believe very strongly that those types of behaviors are directly impacting our fighting readiness and the performance of our sailors,”
The revision in basic training comes as the Navy deals with a series of problems that have manifested themselves in recent years including a rise in suicides, sexual assaults, and a fire on board the USS Bonhomme Richard; a disgruntled sailor was charged with arson in the blaze that destroyed the amphibious assault ship.
Twitter users offered up their red hot takes on the Navy’s extended basic training.

So glad the Navy boot camp will include classes on racism and gender studies because that will really help them should there be a conflict with Russia god forbid. No one will be able to accuse them of not being inclusive during combat. 🥴🤡

I’m so encouraged. While our “competitors” are deploying hypersonic missiles, our glorious Navy is confronting extremism among the sailors. We must have the smartest admirals in the world.

We are only a few years from embedding commissars in the ranks:

Since he was tabbed by President Biden as Pentagon boss, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has embarked upon a mission to cleanse the ranks of the armed forces of those who are suspected of having positive sentiment for former President Donald J. Trump as well as prioritizing critical race theory, a divisive and toxic ideology that some have contended is detrimental to morale and erodes fighting capability.
A recent report conducted at the direction of four Republican lawmakers including combat vets Sen. Tom Cotton and Rep. Dan Crenshaw found that the Navy’s combat readiness has suffered greatly as a result of the shift towards “woke” curriculum.

In the report titled “A Report on the Fighting Culture of the United States Navy Surface Fleet,” retired Marine Corps. Lt. Gen. Robert E. Schmidle and retired Navy Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery conducted interviews with “numerous active-duty and recently retired or detached officers and enlisted personnel” for their input on overall battle readiness.
One respondent identified as an active-duty lieutenant said, “Sometimes I think we care more about whether we have enough diversity officers than if we’ll survive a fight with the Chinese navy,”
“It’s criminal,” the lieutenant currently on active duty added. “They think my only value is as a black woman. But you cut our ship open with a missile and we’ll all bleed the same color.”
While Biden’s top brass is waging ideological purges of the military and emphasizing sensitivity, America’s enemies couldn’t be happier at the shift from combat readiness to being “woke” at a time when China and Russia are honing their own armed forces into precision killing machines. The results could be disastrous if a major conflict erupts.
