Samuel P. Huntington offered “a now-classic description of the military mind — conservative, realistic, and pessimistic about human nature.” Elsewhere in one of his books, Huntington mentions that the military was once, almost to a man, Republican.
No longer. And Mayor Pete Buttigieg is hardly exhibit A as to the progressive nature of the military. But he is a damn good one, for the military is reliably liberal.
“The military is government. The military works like government; is financed like government, and sports many of the same inherent malignancies of government. Like all government-run divisions and departments, the US military is manacled by multiculturalism, feminism and all manner of outré sexual politics, affirmative action, and political correctness that kills.”
In other words, the military’s impetus is liberal.
