Marine Corps Command Walks Back Twitter Jabs at Tucker Carlson

 via EpochTimes

The incident started with Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s recent criticism of the Biden administration’s handling of military priorities.

Carlson juxtaposed the Chinese communist regime addressing a lack of masculinity in Chinese boys as well as amassing the world’s largest Navy fleet with the Biden administration’s focus on accommodating women in the military.

In a recent speech Biden went over the efforts, such as tailoring uniforms specifically for women, designing “maternity flight suits,” and relaxing hairstyle regulations.

“Some of it’s going to take an intensity of purpose and mission to really change the culture and habits that caused women to leave the military,” Biden said.

Carlson commented: “So we’ve got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the U.S. military.”

While some interpreted the segment as criticizing the administration for distracting the military from its warfighting mission, others interpreted it as Carlson opposing women’s playing a role in the military.

On March 12, the Twitter account of II Marine Expeditionary Force Information Group posted a picture of a female Marine carrying a fellow Marine.

“What it looks like in current armed forces @TuckerCarlson,” the post said. “Get right before you get left, boomer.”

The tweet prompted a mixed response. Some people praised it for supporting women in uniform. Others found it unprofessional.

“Please focus on China and not Tucker Carlson,” one user commented.

The USMC account came back with a reply, “Come back when you’ve served and been pregnant.”

“Please focus on China and not me,” the user responded.

The Marine Corps has either lost its way or it was never what I thought it was. We're fucked.
