Yes, I understand that title is not a news flash to anyone in America, or the world, but the illegitimate president’s newest swipe at our armed forces is even something Obama wouldn’t attempt.
This article is a bit misleading, so I’ll comment as I go through it.
President Joe Biden’s administration on Wednesday came out against efforts to prevent dishonorable discharges for U.S. troops who refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Office of Management and Budget said in a policy statement it “strongly opposes” an amendment to the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that bars any discharge but honorable for service members.
The Biden administration is demanding dishonorable discharges for any member of the military who refuse to get the Covid vaccine; no matter the rank, no matter the medals, no matter the years of service.
The provision “would detract from readiness and limit a commander’s options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination,” the office said, adding that commanders “must have the ability to give orders and take appropriate disciplinary measures” in order to have “a uniformed force to fight with discipline.”
I would vigorously dispute forcing a vaccine on someone is a “lawful order,” but putting that aside, this will two things. First, it will destroy the already low morale of our armed forces. Second, it will deter Americans from joining in the first place. Plus, people like the Navy SEALs – who apparently are dead set against the vaccine – will have to explain their dishonorable discharges to future employers.
The amendment received support from members of both parties during a markup of the act on Sept. 1. It was authored by Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.), a military veteran and a doctor.
So there is bipartisan support against destroying the careers of our armed forces personnel, but the illegitimate president still demands they be punished. Worst. President. Evah.
