The military requirements of neat grooming are gradually being eroded with the rest of society, with an Air Force Academy Col now rebuking a 1st Sgt for telling cadets to pull up…
The social depravity and moral degradation of this nation can be directly linked to the hood rat deification, the cultural embracing of illegals, including the heavily-tattooed MS13 illegal alien and excuse-making praise of ghetto prison population. The left demands undeserved respect under the threat of being being declared a racist.
Spitting, grunting and chanting aren’t substitutes for hours of practice in attaining proficiency at playing a musical instrument, yet rap outsells rock and roll these days. It’s a testament to just how far down the millennial population has fallen. They falsely equate someone who can create sounds through a computer or guttural emissions with talent and don’t even realize how ridiculous their claims are.
Dressing like a slob is cool, as is wearing your pants so low that they expose your entire butt and create a trip hazard. It’s comical to watch one of these Neanderthals attempt to get something out of their hip pocket, which is about knee level or to run like a toddler waiting to be wiped.
There was a time where the armed forces were a refuge from nonsense like that, where proper grooming was demanded. Apparently, at least in the Air Force, sloppiness is now a positive character trait. Perhaps it’s more a matter of compromised, cowardly leadership, that would rather submit to the manipulative demands of the PC race-baiters than stand up for their branch of service and demand excellence.
One such coward is USAF Col Julian Stephens, who rebuked First Sergeant Zachary Parish for an email he sent that was subsequently leaked to cadets at the Air Force Academy. Parish stepped over the line in urging the maintaining of a professional, well-groomed appearance.
He wrote, “Observations made by USAFA [United States Air Force Academy] permanent party members regarding cadet grooming standards have become increasingly unfavorable. Going forward, I expect you all to do your part in reversing negative perceptions about cadet personal appearance that circulates USAFA and diminishes your credibility as a member in the profession of arms.”
Perhaps he should have stopped there if he wanted to keep the PC police from attacking. Instead, he made the mistake of pointing to a black person with good grooming, Michael Jordan, as a role model.
Parish wrote, “Before Michael Jordan became a clothing brand mogul, he was actually a pretty good professional basketball player. In the later years of his career, and before the NBA’s dress code existed, he would consistently appear at press conferences in a suit and tie. He was never seen with a gaudy chain around his neck, his pants below his waistline, or with a backwards baseball hat on during public appearances.”
He closed by stating, “Michael Jordan understood the value of a professional appearance.” Parish asked, “Cadets, how do you want to be seen? If the answer is not as a military professional, then perhaps you are in the wrong place.”
Some Air Force snowflakes who are probably some of those slobs that Parish was referencing, got their little feelings hurt and went crying to Colonel Stephens, who publicly admonished Parish for committing “microaggressions.” Obviously Stephens is a victim of the public education system and has the Obama-Clinton-Soros Mafia to thank for his undeserved promotions.
Slob-lover Stephens sent out an email of his own to all cadets, saying, “On behalf of all [Cadet Wing] Sr. Leadership and permanent party members, let me apologize for the email sent earlier today by our First Sergeant.” Stephens called the comments “disrespectful, derogatory, and unprofessional,” and promised to address this microaggression immediately.
“Please continue to be vigilant,” said the colonel. Rat out your fellow cadets if the opportunity presents itself until the entire class has reached the level of the lowest common hood rat denominator. He insisted they treat each other with “dignity” and “respect,” regardless of whether they deserve it or not.
The academy said in a statement, “The comments were inappropriate. We have a responsibility for how we communicate and if anyone feels disrespected by someone’s words, we take that very seriously. We need to take responsibility immediately and learn from it as we move forward.”
Of course the First Sergeant was disrespected by the words of the PC Colonel and humiliated but that’s different. He’s not a leftist crybaby, so nobody cares. Academy Commandant Kristin Goodwin is a lesbian so clearly the straight, upstanding idealistic military men of old are under attack. Degrading our defensive capabilities includes diminished discipline, and incorporation of the new, morally degraded, societal “norms” is a key part of their scheme.
New York State Senator Eric Adams put it quite succinctly back in 2010 when he mounted a campaign to encourage decency among those wearing their pants where they’re not intended to be. Maybe this video needs to be shown to Air Force Academy “leadership.”
