Air Force cadets reportedly told not to use such terms as “mom,” “dad,” or “terrorist”

A disturbing report has emerged regarding woke ideologies in one of America’s military academies, and it has one lawmaker demanding answers. 

“Terrorist” deemed to be an inappropriate term

According to Fox News, Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton addressed the matter in a letter sent to Air Force Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Richard Clark on Thursday.

“Cadets were reportedly instructed to refrain from using terms such as ‘boyfriend’ and ‘girlfriend’ or ‘mom’ and ‘dad,’ and instead use terms that ‘include all gender,’” Cotton wrote.

“The training also condemns the use of the term ‘colorblind’ or the claim that someone does not ‘see color,'” the senator continued, adding, “Even the term ‘terrorist’ was deemed inappropriate.”

“These divisive and un-American training exercises have no place in our military and demonstrate an alarming lack of focus at the Airforce (sic) Academy,” Cotton stressed.

“The Airforce (sic) Academy ought to teach future airmen to revere our nation’s traditions and values, not to have contempt for them,” he went on.

The Republican lawmaker concluded by asking Clark a series of questions, including whether he could confirm that the training in question took place and how many cadets were exposed to it.

Slides states that cadets should say ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad’

Fox News published a series of slides bearing the Air Force Academy’s logo which tell cadets to avoid using the term “terrorist” as well as “mom” and “dad.”

“Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'” one slide reads. “Use words that include all genders: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.'”

Another slide insists that diversity and inclusion are “critical to developing warfighters prepared to lead the USAF/USSF with character” and that “diverse teams outperform other teams.”

The Air Force Academy offers a minor in diversity and inclusion studies, something which purports to build “respect for human dignity across a wide range of cultures and societies enabling the effective and ethical execution of military operations.”

“In order to unleash the full potential of diversity of thought, the Air Force Academy must cultivate leaders who not only understand and recognize the importance of diversity, but who actively create inclusive environments that leverage this diversity toward mission success,” the Air Force Academy’s website states.
