Priorities: U.S. Military Base Is Hosting a Drag Show
Meanwhile, our enemies are focused on winning wars.
By Robert Spencer

It seems as if every day lately there is another reason to break out the champagne in Moscow and Beijing, and Saturday was no exception: it was the day of Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE)’s first “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summer Festival,” featuring (what else), a drag show. What does all this woke nonsense have to do with winning wars? Oh, never mind that; that’s the old, white supremacist military! The new diverse military has other priorities altogether

The festival, according to the Daily Wire, will feature “a series of performances and speeches, including a poem on ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ and a drag show by Joshua Kelley, who performs under the moniker Harpy Daniels.”

This isn’t some outsider, non-military-grade drag show, either. Harpy Daniels is actually a yeoman 3rd class in the United States Navy, and you can just imagine how proud John Paul Jones and Chester Nimitz would be if they saw young Harpy in action. He actually joined the Navy in order to finance his drag career. Back in the bad old days, young men joined the Navy out of a sense of patriotism (and no doubt a desire for adventure), but for Harpy it’s just a means to an end: “With drag being my number one passion,” Yeoman Harpy explained, “it quickly became costly. On top of just struggling to make ends meet and then pay college loans, the Navy became a great option to get myself situated in life.“

They’re going to get a bravura performance at JBLE, because Harpy gives it his or her or xis all: “Doing drag allows me to embrace my feminine side and allows me to bring my diversity and creativity out. When I put on a face, it’s a face of art and creativity, not just a face of make-up. To hear people cheer, laugh or cry, or even join in with you during a performance is an absolute thrill.”

Those straights and dweebs over at the Daily Wire note primly that Harpy’s “professional Instagram page features dozens of photos of him in drag, many of them heavily sexualized. Some of the photos show Kelley nude, though the photos themselves appear to not violate Instagram’s nudity policies.” My fellow Americans, this is your United States Navy!

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summer Festival was the brainchild of the JBLE Breaking Barriers Alliance, a committee in the base’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion. How much attention JBLE’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, or its JBLE Breaking Barriers Alliance, devotes to actual efforts to defend the United States from military threats was not disclosed. The whole thing was approved at the top: JBLE’s commander, Colonel Gregory Beaulieu, green-lighted the festival, and it was off to the races, er, that is, off to the drag show. And not just a drag show: the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summer Festival will also feature “bouncy houses and face painting for the children” who get bored with watching Harpy Daniels cavort.

A notable stick in the mud in all this has been Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Military Personnel, who dared to point out that the U.S. military should actually devote its attention to winning wars, not to woke virtue-signaling: “Diversity may be a strength for America, but it cannot be an organizing principle for the Pentagon. Actual strength — physical strength, mental strength, and overall end strength — is our strength. DEI initiatives risk sapping this strength. By co-opting the Woke Left’s obsession with racial and gender diversity, the Pentagon’s DEI evangelists are ironically stifling the very type of diversity that might improve military performance: intellectual diversity.”

The U.S. Air Force didn’t even have an Office of Diversity and Inclusion until Old Joe Biden started pretending to be president. But now that seems to be all that it’s about. JBLE explained in a statement that the goal of the Summer Festival was to “provide education and awareness, increase collaboration through outreach, and recognize the diverse composition of JBLE. JBLE leadership is committed to celebrating differences and cultivating an inclusive environment where every Airman, Soldier and civilian feels valued.”

Well, heavens to betsy. We certainly don’t want our airmen or soldiers not to feel valued. Some curmudgeons might prefer that they feel equipped to defeat the enemy in combat, but come on, man! This is the twenty-first century!

Probably 20 years ago when we were in St Thomas, we stayed at a Ramada at the marina. One of the large military ships pulled in and we were surrounded by sailors. I couldn't even go into the pool area because I was intimidated by the circle of sailors all around, staring. Later than night, we heard all kinds of music and party noise so hubby went out to investigate. Turns out the navy paid for a big strip show for its crew. I'm sure tax payers must have funded that.

More likely members of the crew that were in to that sort of thing probably pooled money and took up a collection of interested parties.

No chance the Navy would pay on a claim of this type of expense.

You would be shocked to hear some of the stories I either witnessed, participated in, or heard of from others, of what Marines and Sailors enjoy while on liberty - and especially when overseas. Moms would be futher shocked at what their formerly innocent teens are capable of :woah
Im not condoning any bad behavior, but understand these “kids” are worked very hard, in trying times, little sleep, and sometimes folks are trying to kill you. When its finally time to relax, even the most timid and withdrawn tend to “act out”.

This has been the battle cry for decades. When I served, similar statements were made about the military not being the place for social experiments.

Why any military base would host a drag show is beyond me, and totally repulsive.

I'm starting to question whether or not the much lauded principal of "diversity" is, in fact a "strength" at all. It's a trait that can just as easily become a weakness as a strength and the globalists and shills for the left/New world Order have really done an exceptional job in turning just about every demographic in our nation against one or more other demographics.

It legitimately feels like people don't just disagree with each other, they actually HATE each other.

The military is no place for this; it needs to be, and remain, a separate entity. The U.S. military, in my opinion, is not, and should not be a democracy, (woke or otherwise) and , as such, it does NOT need to be "representative of the culture it protects."

It's a hierarchical, authoritarian structure whose sole purpose is to defend the interests of our nation. (Though it's weird how often those "interests of our nation" seem to line up with what's in the best interests of corporate oligarchs and wealthy politicians). Our military men and women need to be focusing on sharpening their effectiveness at war fighting, not being used as a social experiment.

On a sort of related note, I came across an article that discusses how even China is lamenting that it's current generation of fighting age men is going "soft." So, that's a bit encouraging. :)

Totally don't mind from that aspect, but I was kind of robbed of enjoying my vacation experience due to the invasion of men. (Also I was young and cute then, LOL)

Whether this is more a part of the indoctrination or a symptom of it we are reminded of the satanic indoctrination that is rampant in our culture, and that it's having an effect on the military. We hear about communist and racist indoctrination in the form of CRT, but the satanic indoctrination is at least as dangerous, if not more so. Both forms serve the same master in any case, and they both increase the chance of the military being used against the American people as a tool of the tyrant.

Exactly how I see it too. :agree

Secretary of Defense Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Milley need to show they are willing to participate in things they expect the rank and file to observe. I think Secretary Austin would have a softer, gentler image in a pink two piece swimsuit with a white boa wrapped around his shoulders. Gold glittery eye shadow and matching lipstick would complete the look. His dance partner “Milley Vanilly” could wear a matching stripper costume and makeup, but his face needs to be covered in leather with sequins (or a plain bag).
They could call themselves The Heavy Hags and practice a pole dance duet. For safety, the pole needs to be a 16” gun barrel from an Iowa class battleship.

From what I read, Joshua has been performing on his ship since 2018. In drag.
This boy is so lost. As a *normal* person, I am repulsed by drag queens. I don't even understand who enjoys seeing them???
I am going to pray for that boy.
