US Navy says BLM activism for sailors is okay because it’s not a “politically partisan” issue

The US Navy is taking a “woke” double-standard approach to addressing politics and ideologies in uniform, discouraging  certain forms of “extremist activities” while openly stating that it is okay to support the Black Lives Matter movement. 

In a slide designed for training within the organization, BLM was deemed to be outside of “politically partisan” issues, with the material referring to it as a “public policy issue.”

Advocating for the organization is okay “as long as the behavior is otherwise lawful and the advocacy is not politically partisan in nature,” according to the training. 

“Advocating for or against a public policy issue (as here) is authorized as long as the behavior is otherwise lawful and the advocacy is not politically partisan in nature (e.g. it doesn’t specifically address a political party),” the slide read. “If the discussions make you uncomfortable, discuss the matter with your boss or another supervisor.”

According to FOX News, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby declined to directly discuss the matter when pressed, claiming he had no answer at the time the question was raised. 

“What we’re trying to get after here is the kind of ideology that inspires conduct and behavior… And it’s not about one side or the other on the aisle,” said Kirby. “It’s not about what God you worship or choose not to worship. It’s about ideology that inspires you or can inspire others to bring harm inside the force. And that’s what we’re trying to get after.”
