Washington Post Discovers World War II-Era
Survey, Cancels the Greatest Generation

Original Article

The Washington Post had a real scoop Monday: people in the 1940s held views that many would find racist and sexist today. It seems that Edward J.K. Gitre, an assistant professor of history at Virginia Tech, stumbled upon 65,000 pages of Army surveys from World War II in the National Archives. Wokescolds have now combed through them and are presenting the very worst of the “harsh views” expressed, in a project called “The American Soldier in World War II,” supported by Virginia Tech and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Post breathlessly informs us that “a lot of it runs counter to the wholesome image

The Post breathlessly reports that the greatest generation did not support transgenderism, gay marriage, defunding the police, nor did they think that diversity was the greatest of all moral imperatives. They must be condemned for not embracing the politically correct views of 21st century liberal idiots.

For fun, WaPo, how about a re-run of the 1964 Democrat Convention, when civil rights were fought on the floor? Or tell your readers what Jim Crow really looked like when Democrats ran the show?

Now they will try to destroy some of the finest people in the history of this country. The men went off to fight, the women picked up the slack at home and we survived and thrived. Men like my dad, terrified of war, went off in great ships to Europe and saved them. Daddy said by the time they got to England, London was almost destroyed. We saved them, we saved France. I don't care what snotty woke people think of them today, they were heroes, something the woke will never be.

There will be a reckoning one day and these pajama boys are not going to like it. I had a lot of conversations with my brother’s father in law who was in the Battle of the Bulge. These were men. Were they scared of dying? Of course, but they did their duty and gutted it out. Somehow, I can’t see the weakling girly boys at CNN, MSNBC et al lasting one day of basic training even as it is now with trying to accommodate women recruits who can’t keep up with the simplest physical tasks. I am afraid the Chinese or Russian Army would go through most of our troops like crap through a goose. But, at least we will be “diverse” and inclusive like that Muslim major who murdered fifteen of his comrades. Speaking of which, why hasn’t that piece of filth been executed by now.

My father was working at Ford when Pearl Harbor was attacked, and continued on the line for the first year (under deferment) while they switched from cars to tanks. When women began appearing on the line he enlisted in early 1943. When the atom bombs were dropped, he was in Hawaii awaiting the invasion of Japan along with hundreds of thousands of other men. Dad's older brother enlisted in the Navy on December 8th, 1941. He fought the entire Pacific island campaign as a Sea Bee building airstrips; driving a bulldozer with one hand and a rifle in the other. Four months after Japan's surrender he landed in San Francisco and went on a week-long bender. Near the end of his spree he passed an Army recruiting station with a poster for the horse cavalry. Having always wanted to learn how to ride a horse, he enlisted. He was in the last horse cavalry unit to be used in military action. He was sent to Europe for the occupation and was stationed on the "border" between the US and Russian sectors. They were in touch with groups wanting to leave the Russian sector. They would move their horses in between the refugees and the Russian soldiers following. As Uncle Bill would say, "No Russian wanted to shoot an American soldier and start hell back up again." He met his wife in London on a weekend leave. Anna was a refugee from the Czech Alps; having left at sixteen with a dozen other teenagers from her village - skiing out on a moonless night heading for Austria. She walked her way to France and got out of Paris one week before the Nazi's marched in. They had a long courtship, but finally married after Uncle Bill returned from the Korean War via the Chosin Reservoir. My family is not unique and many others made the ultimate sacrifice of their young men. These were Americans. The wokesters today are so perfect and so advanced they have no compunction sitting in judgement of the men and women of the past, especially those that displayed strength, tenacity and courage. They are such superior human beings, I'm sure they will readily accept future generations who will roundly condemn them for abortion, the acceptance of sexual deviancy and the destruction of the family. We've not yet begun to fight. MAGA!

The people interviewed had already lived for 20+ years in a society created by the democrats that punished people who believed blacks and whites should be equal. If you didnt want bad things to happen, you kept your head down in public. Otherwise, you were passed over for promotions, your kids got beat up at school, and if, God help you, you were public about it - an 'agitator', the Klan could visit your house. This was the reality in 1940.

Anyone can play "The Anachronism Game" by applying one epoch's social mores to one removed by several generations, or even better, centuries. It's become the favorite game of the Woke Generation, always living in year Zero, in which today's standards are waiting to be replaced by tomorrow's, in a never-ending cycle of stupidity and chaos. A historical perspective is anathema to these idiots. However, judging by the views expressed by our forebears, I submit "The Greatest Generation" may also have been "The Wisest Generation."

It's the way it was back then. My father was in the South Pacific on a cruiser as a medic. He was a registered nurse and had worked in a steel mill with all male nurses. My mother, also a nurse, took his place at the plant. At first, she wasn't allowed down in the mills as a woman because it was dangerous. The injured were brought to her. She was left go, as were the other women nurse replacements because the men returned after the war and got their jobs back. My Dad had wanted to become a doctor but was refused by colleges because he was now "too old". It was just the way it was. Our parents and grandparents gave a lot for our country but never regretted it. There were no checks, no handouts, just grit and make due. People now should see how things have improved, what opportunities have come about, how much discrimination has been eliminated and how much potential they have. It's their own fault not to take advantage of it.

My father was too young to be in WW2, but served in Korea. Half of his Galveston Ball High high school class joined the Marines, and the other half the Navy. He had told me the Marines never came back from Chosin. Never heard him complain, other than DC planners saw Korea was in Pacific, so didn't send any winter uniforms or coats.

Have these woke idiots ever given any consideration to how they will be viewed by future generations living in a completely different culture 75 years from now? Of course not!

Remember when they used to train soldiers to dehumanize the enemy? It was for survival and to win the war. So, yes, soldiers called the Japanese, Germans and Italians lots of names that would be considered "raaaaaaaacist" today. Was there some racism within our own military? Yes, there was some, however, a lot of it was holdover resulting from the days of the Democrat policies and practices that carried ignorance, fear and hate forward slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, poll taxes, KKK, redlining, and other evil Democrat beliefs. But, to be honest, most of the average soldiers were not personally bigoted. Most respected and relied on their fellow troops of all colors, creeds, races and religions. They were in the same side. They were truly brothers in arms. Any of this propaganda that WaPoo has is likely being spun to create the worst impressions possible of our heroes. I know the truth. My father was one of those heroes. He was also Hispanic and worked and fought alongside men of every color and background. Yes, he knew of some bigotry during the war, but that is a real human frailty. Humans are not perfect and will always have both good and bad behaviors. I just know that If it is wrong, you fight against it and try to change it. He did, but I am sure it wasn't near any level that the radicals will claim it was. I will never accept evil leftist revisionism.

Of course the Post and the study will not note how WWII served to break down the ethnic, racial, economic, and regional prejudices of Americans. Where's the recognition that for the large part, camps, combat, the services, and civilian war work were effective in breaking stupid prejudices down? The guy in the foxhole next to you, an Georgian, might be a Jew from New York--and your life depends on him. Your ammo came off a truck driven by a Red Ball Express black enlisted man. That fighter pilot laying down suppressive fire was likely a college boy now far older than his tender years. That letter you're looking forward to was processed by a young black Army WAC from the 4888th Postal Battalion. That Army nurse in fatigues dressing your wound and assisting at surgery might be a no-nonsense New Englander or Kansan. The gal next to you sawing, welding or riveting came from the wrong side of the tracks and moved 1000 miles to work in an aircraft plant, shipyard, or other factory. We don't have experiences like that any more in everyday life for the most part, especially among the media elites.

Back in the 40's when men were men is when we won a war that save Europe and the world from tyrants. If we a had a war today, I wouldn't count that the odds would be in our favor. Unfortunately, we have evolved to the mess our society has now become. This is nothing new. It happened with the Romans and other societies before us. The 40's were great years. They gave rise to the 50's and then it started to go downhill with the 60's to where we are today.

I wouldn't put myself on the line for this crowd of misfit leaders and half of this woke country. I'll defend my family and property but that's all. There are still good men and women who love this country but know exactly how I feel about the trash in the streets of 'wokeness'.

So...whenever I try to talk about how Democrats were the racists and Republicans were founded as the anti-slavery party and were the ones who set slaves free, made them citizens and guaranteed their vote, the left wants to talk about how "the parties switched later." But when I point out that even 100 years later the blacks were Republicans and when JFK got MLK sprung from jail, MLK's dad said it was the first time he'd ever consider voting for a Democrat, they say "the parties switched later." And when you point out how Al Gore's dad and other Democrats were still the Jim Crow people, they say "the parties switched later." But Republicans didn't carry the South til AFTER Reagan was elected. So whenever I try to point to history, they say it's irrelevant. But now they want to go back to the 1940s and cancel people?

Of course, the Washington Post story of the VaTech study cherry-picked the stories they felt would produce the reactions they wanted. These were different times, and there were different attitudes, but the Greatest generation stood tall to deliver the results that saved the world under terrible circumstances. The remarks to this story are among the best I've seen on recently. And #10's remarks are priceless. Merry Christmas!

My father was only 17 when he enlisted in the Marines during WWII. My grandparents had all 4 of their sons enlisted in this war. One of my uncles fought in the Battle of the Bulge. One, who enlisted in the navy was in a submarine and came home almost completely deaf after the war but I never heard him say how that happened because I never heard them talk about it. I did hear that he refused disability after the war and would not take any money. He became a butcher he said he did not need government assistance. . He was also a hunter and he and my other uncle had some of the best hunting dogs I have ever known. That's where I got a lot of my knowledge about dogs because I'd go out with them and listened to everything they said -- they did not talk much. . All sons, including my father, did make it home alive. These were real men and I made sure I married a real man too.

Women, like my mom, worked in factories and didn't sit at home texting or moaning about some silly little thing like girls today. These women were mature for their age. They had to grow up fast because their Country was fighting for its life. Watching old movies, you can tell that the stress had aged people beyond their years. Sad to see today that many Americans have lost that fighting spirit of WWII. Maybe the persecution from Biden/Obama/Soros will make America Great Again!

Alternate headline: Joe Manchin knows how to bring home the media bacon! Punchbowl keeps tabs on political spending in key states, and claims that political activists have spent at least $10 million in West Virginia to either influence Manchin, bully him, or prepare the ground for a 2024 challenge to the incumbent Democrat. What have progressives gotten for the cash? Not much, as Manchin has largely stuck to his positions regardless, but Mountain State TV and radio stations must be loving this: Over the last year, we’ve noticed a big chunk of issue ads targeting Manchin back home. The reasons here are obvious: He’s the critical Democratic vote on nearly every issue

Leaked Snippet of Kamala Harris Interview

After spending much of Biden’s term in relative hiding, Kamala Harris has made a lot of news lately. Unfortunately for her, none of it has been good. From blowing up on podcast hosts to claims that racism and sexism are driving her approval down, it’s been one conflict after another for the vice president. And to put it mildly, she’s handled none of it well. That’s probably why she’s doing an interview on CBS News this Sunday. When nothing else is working, get out in front of the bad news, I suppose. And while most of the interview is under embargo for several more days, we are getting some leaked snippets.

Working at the White House is a high-stress job, no doubt. It’s also the kind of job that encourages burnout after a couple of years given the workload and pressures. But Politico is reporting that there is a mass exodus of White House aides brewing, and it’s not entirely due to burnout. The Politico report comes the same month in which an article detailing turmoil and high turnover in Vice President Kamala Harris’s office appeared. Turnover in White House staff after the first year is expected. Some aides only take the job to pad their resumes. Others use the White House as a stepping stone
CDC loosens isolation rules for health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is altering the rules for when health workers who test positive for COVID-19 can return to the job, saying such workers can return after seven days in isolation instead of 10. The change comes as the U.S. braces for a new wave of coronavirus cases from the heavily contagious omicron variant, which is expected to put new stress on the U.S. health care system. In a statement, the CDC said that it is recommending a seven-day isolation and quarantine period for workers in that field.

The Economic Confidence Index (ECI) is down to -33, which while far from the record low of -72 in October 2008, reflects a negative growing sentiment toward rampant inflation. Notably, the ECI is just as low as it was in April 2020 — the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. “With inflation in the U.S. at its highest point since 1982, Americans’ confidence in the economy has dropped to where it was in April 2020, when nationwide shutdowns brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic plunged

Elon Musk is the richest man in the world and was just named Time’s “Person of the Year.” But it’s pretty clear that he’s not a compliant woke liberal. Indeed, he’s angered many on the left because he does in fact challenge their orthodoxies. Musk has not only stood up against the targeting of the rich by people like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), but he’s also stood up against lockdown orders over COVID, calling them “fascist.” However, Musk is likely to drive them into even more of a meltdown with what he just did. He gave the Babylon Bee

On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) sounded off on Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) reportedly thinking about leaving the Democratic Party. The White House slammed Manchin as disloyal to the party after the senator rejected President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda. McConnell told “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that if Manchin were to join the GOP, he would find “a lot of folks who have similar views on a whole range of issues.” He added it was possible Manchin would get to keep his chairmanship of the Energy Committee if he made the move. “[W]hat the White House did to Joe Manchin the other day

The Washington Post had a real scoop Monday: people in the 1940s held views that many would find racist and sexist today. It seems that Edward J.K. Gitre, an assistant professor of history at Virginia Tech, stumbled upon 65,000 pages of Army surveys from World War II in the National Archives. Wokescolds have now combed through them and are presenting the very worst of the “harsh views” expressed, in a project called “The American Soldier in World War II,” supported by Virginia Tech and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Post breathlessly informs us that “a lot of it runs counter to the wholesome image

The apparent small rebound for Joe Biden’s approval numbers may turn out to be a dead-cat bounce. A new poll published yesterday for PBS and NPR from Marist puts Biden’s job approval rating at its lowest yet, at 41/55. That’s certainly bad enough, but the news from independents is much worse, and not just for Biden: As President Joe Biden heads into the end of the year, he’s facing a sour reality: The number of Americans who approve of his performance has hit a new low. Just 41 percent of Americans approve

Addressing the public Tuesday, President Joe Biden blamed the Covid-19 test shortage on the rapid ascent of the Omicron variant, which sprouted in South Africa just after Thanksgiving and has since swept the nation with astounding speed. A number of reporters relayed the concerns of citizens who have been unable to obtain Covid-19 tests due to insufficient inventory ahead of Christmas. “What’s your message to Americans who are trying to get tested now and who are not able to get tested and who are wondering what took so long to ramp up testing?” a reporter asked the president. Biden replied: “C’mon, what took so long?

Amid low approval ratings and continued press attention on her role, Vice President Kamala Harris has turned to another powerful woman who clashed with critics, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, for guidance. And she has concluded she would get better treatment in the media if she were white and male like all of her predecessors, telling her allies as much. Harris has contended with departing aides and gripes about her leadership style, amid complaints from within her circle about that difficult tasks she has been assigned, including dealing with 'root causes' of the border crisis.

'I came up with a vaccine–with three vaccines,' Trump told the Daily Wire host, referring to the development of the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines while he was still president. 'All are very, very good. Came up with three of them in less than nine months. It was supposed to take five to 12 years.'

Joe Biden has promised to deliver 500 million Covid tests but hasn't even signed a contract to buy them or set up a website so that people can place orders. 'That's not a plan - it's a hope,' Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, told The New York Time. 'If those tests came in January and February, that could have an impact, but if they are spread out over 10 to 12 months, I'm not sure what kind of impact it is going to have.' It is not even known how many tests will be immediately available

Leftism is driven by committee advice; it’s how the echo-chambering communal groupthink works. After the White House COVID “Winter of Death” messaging was ridiculed and ignored by almost everyone in the general public, the communications team quickly went back to the drawing board. You can almost hear Ron Klain instructing the team to find ways to avoid the ‘Grinch team‘ labeling. However, the ordinary emotional disposition of leftists and Democrats, writ large, is depressing, angry and negative, the result from a lifetime of blame casting.
