February 10, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) –Former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander Steven Rogers has slammed the Biden administration’s new purge of “extremism” in the U.S. military, calling it a pathway to communism in America.

“This to me is dangerous and looks like a political litmus test, and it’s a road that you would only find in Communist China or in the former Soviet Union,” Lt. Comm. Rogers told NTD on Saturday.

Biden’s newly-confirmed Defense Secretary, Lloyd Austin, had ordered a 60-day “stand-down” across the military to “discuss the problem of extremism in the ranks,” as the Pentagon announced last Wednesday.

In his order, Austin directed all military leaders to admonish troops against “impermissible behaviors” and to discuss “procedures for reporting suspected, or actual, extremist behaviors.” 

He called the move “the first initiative of what I believe must be a concerted effort… to eliminate the corrosive effects that extremist ideology and conduct have on the workforce.”

“[The military] will become another arm of the government. I’m not talking about the U.S. government as we know it now, but a U.S. government Joe Biden, the socialists, the communists want to create in this country,” Lt. Comm. Rogers warned.

“Are military members who have conservative views and values — are they the ones that are going to be targeted?” he asked.

For the next two years, state legislators will be the last line of defense against a radical, leftist ideology invading every aspect of our lives.

Our federal institutions - especially, the judiciary - utterly betrayed America and the Constitution in their dereliction of duty towards seeking the truth in the outcome of the 2020 election.

And now, with the Senate in the hands of the leftists, freedom-loving Americans must DEMAND that our state institutions, and every patriotic state legislator, do everything in his or her power to oppose the assaults on our Freedom, on Life, on Family, and on Faith which are sure to come from Washington, D.C. after January, 20th.

Please SIGN this petition and DEMAND that state legislators, in every state, PLEDGE to defend America from the tyranny of the Left.

January 6th, 2021 will be remembered by patriotic Americans, for generations to come, as a turning point.

January 6th will be remembered as conservative America's vote of no confidence in official institutions. Simultaneously a primordial cry for freedom and a tragic scene where the last vestiges of law and order succumbed under the reality of current events.

(After you have signed this petition, take a couple of minutes to personally contact your state legislators by email, Twitter, or by phone, using the Voter Voice tool provided to you by LifeSite.

Don't be mistaken: unlike so many politicians who are supposed to be on our side, the left almost always follows through with what they set out to do. So, yes, you can believe all of the predictions of impending doom for conservative causes.

Therefore, we must now DEMAND that our state legislators ACT to defend us from the federal government's future attempts to attack our freedoms, human life, the natural family, and our right to freely practise our faith.

And we, ourselves, must also be willing to strongly advocate for those freedoms, for life, for family and for our Faith.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition. And then, please take 5 minutes to contact your local state representatives using the Voter Voice link below. With Voter Voice, it really couldn't be easier.

Thank you!

According to Breitbart News, an Army commander recently told Special Forces trainees that they could be “detained” or removed from the military if caught with right-wing symbols, including those associated with QAnon.

“[I]f anyone gets caught wearing, buying, selling, affiliated with in any way, any of those things on that list, that the first thing [the commander is] going to do is chapter us out of the Army,” a source told Breitbart.

At least one Army chaplain is currently under investigation as an “extremist” after affirming biological sex and condemning transgender ideology in a Facebook post.

“We all know that in Communist China and the former Soviet Union there were political offices attached to every unit, you just read something that is anti-government or criticized the Kremlin or criticized the Chinese Communist Party, you’re finished, you’re done,” Lt. Comm. Rogers said.

The anti-right crackdown on service members also follows a mass purge of hundreds of Trump appointees from dozens of military advisory boards, as well as the FBI vetting of the political beliefs of the 26,000 National Guardsmen deployed to D.C. for last month’s inauguration.

Only two soldiers ultimately were removed from the event for alleged, undisclosed ties to “extremism.” 

“No matter what” the number of “extremists” may be, “it is … not an insignificant problem and has to be addressed,” Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said on Wednesday, pointing to the service members who may have taken part in the Capitol riot on January 6.

Of the 143 FBI criminal investigations involving military service members in 2020, only one-fourth pertained to white nationalism, implicating a small fraction of one percent of the over 1.3 million Americans in the U.S. military.

Nevertheless, the Democratic Chair of the House Military Personnel Subcommittee has stated that the Defense Department’s efforts may not be going far enough. 

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) called on top Pentagon officials in a letter dated last month to begin screening all troops’ social media posts, claiming that “Facebook, Gab, Parler, and 4Chan, are frequently used by domestic terrorist groups to recruit members and plan violent attacks.”

Regardless of the Capitol riot, she said, “I believe strongly that the actions recommended in this letter have been justified for quite some time.”
