The Tommy Robinson Show: The British Army Has Gone Full SJW

Tommy RobinsonShillman Fellow

I read in the news today that the British Army has launched a new ad campaign, designed to increase recruitment.

The advertisements are focused around telling people that it’s OK to be gay, it’s all right if you get emotional and cry, and that being in the Army is good for your Muslim faith.

What!? Since when was the Army about feelings? Why are we trying to boost army recruitment by dragging in emotionally unstable people?

This isn’t a safe space for trans people. This isn’t somewhere you go to make you feel better about your own identity. This is the British Armed Forces.

We were once the envy of the world, and now we’re this!

It’s funny, because this isn’t the only SJW move from the Army. They have been at it for years – Marxism and political correctness has infiltrated the core of the British Armed Forces, and I wonder just how long it’ll be until we’re flying rainbow flags from our tanks.

Well said Paul McCullough & Al Peterson.
Spending 1.6 million pounds on the “diversity is our strength” campaign is beyond ridiculous.

The military is made up of the alpha males & females that the left hates so very much. More diversity means lower standards. We’ve seen this everywhere this sort of thing has been implemented.

Being gay or Muslim has no bearing on your qualification for military service. The military is not going to base its policy on stereotypes.
So, Andrew why is the British military making it a de facto qualification? If they don’t base policy on stereotypes they do base it on political identity and how is that different?

Nor has pretending soldiers are emotionless robots helped anything.
Nine of the veterans I talked to or read have ever said so. They freely talk about their fears and the times they cried. But they don’t want to turn battle time into a weep fest. That comes after the battle or they are finished.

The moment the lazy catchphrases such as “SJW” start gettign tossed about, you know you’re not missing anything anyway.

Again, the troll posts without hearing the report.

Nor has pretending soldiers are emotionless robots helped anything. You can sit there and wallow in the old stereotype that real men don’t show emotion … but that’s the same sort of attitude that lets undiagnosed mental health issues fester until soldiers are left incapable of any sort of normal functioning. A lot is made of support for veterans, but mental supports are distinctly lacking. (did you know that the epithet “triggered” originally referred to PTSD episodes among war veterans?)

Unity is our strength not diversity.

I wish you’d get this damned site fixed Ezra – it was bad enough before this latest ‘glitch’! It just ate a comment I spent 20 minutes writing!
Or at the least, how about a little common decency and courtesy and inform your fans and patrons of the problem and what’s being done about it! Many people have complained/inquired in the Comments.
I can’t believe you still haven’t said anything about this at all.
That’ll be the sound of disappointment…

Diversity is a western, white, Christian philosophy – certain to kill our entire society.

Agreed, BZ. The root word of diversity is division. Simply stringing words in to memorable phrases does not make them true- black is white. All we are is dust in the wind. Wisdom is the sound of one hand clapping. They all make grammatical sense but they contain no truth.

The reality is: Diversity is Our Downfall.

Post modernist, inclusiveness is dangerous because of its lack of discernment.
Indeed, Liza Rosie. The refusal to exercise discernment is the Third Pillar of Leftiedom. They exercise it constantly. Which is why you can never get a lefty to understand anything.

Left wing governments should only be allowed Muslims as their private or armed security.

YEESH! One more large step to suicide.
commented 2018-01-10 19:59:21 -0500
Maybe recruitment is low also because of this watering down of what was once a fearful force. Who would want to join anymore?
commented 2018-01-10 19:55:51 -0500
Send gays and Muslims to fight Islamists. How much sense does that make? A small rainbow flag should be now be sewn on their uniforms, since they are so proud they want to fly a flag. Yeah try that one and go into combat in the middle east. Post modernist, inclusiveness is dangerous because of its lack of discernment.

No serious, rigorous criteria turn fighting forces into laughing stocks and targets. The west has no chance of defending its borders, demographics or culture if this is the attitude our fighting forces are taking.

Bravo Zulu, good summation.

The armed forces are not meant to be a social experiment. Dropping tried and true standards is a huge mistake.

Recruitment strategies should include a better plan to care for injured soldiers & retired soldiers. Treating them like used kleenex is why numbers have dropped, also, it doesn’t help that PC illness has infected the brass!

Having served nine years in the British Army and three years in the Canadian Reserves, I am in shock. Candy stripe flag BS. It would be better to line the Army up, give them an about face and shoot them all, in the back. If they don’t do this, the Muslims, in the Army, certainly will.

There used to be an England, They said to fight your hardest, Then they gave it all away!

Allowing the islamics a place in the army is a certain mistake.

As a recently retired military man who did six tours I can assure you that they are not to be trusted.

I experienced far too many “green on blue” killings to be anything but hard over against this decision.

There is no “planned or forced” diversity in China, Japan, African countries, Asian countries or South American countries. For good reason.

Diversity is a western, white, Christian philosophy – certain to kill our entire society.

Has the once famed Brit Bulldog been put down?

It would seem so.
