On Tuesday, the House Armed Services Committee denied a Republican request to investigate the activities of individuals who are trying to instill transgender ideology in members of the military.
According to a report by the Daily Caller, Andrew Clyde, a Republican from Georgia, had introduced a resolution that called for the Department of Defense to provide the Committee with all records related to the transgender ideology and gender transition. Unfortunately, the resolution was denied by the committee. Democrats on the committee claimed that the resolution was a waste of resources and that Republicans were only interested in political points.
The resolution called for the Department of Defense to provide the Committee with all records related to the transgender ideology and gender transition. It also required the department to provide the Committee with documents that contain the terms “transgender,” “gender identity,” “gender reassignment,” and “gender neutral.” These documents have been used in various training seminars conducted under the Biden Administration. One of the main arguments used in these seminars is that there are multiple genders and that individuals can change their gender at any time.
The resolution was denied by the committee, which was chaired by Congressman Adam Smith of Washington. He called the attempt by the Republicans to investigate the activities of individuals who are trying to instill transgender ideology in members of the military a waste of resources.
Responding to the committee's decision, the Republicans stated that the forced introduction of identity politics and divisive training would only harm the military's unity.
"According to Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida, the actions taken by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin have harmed the military. He noted that the resolution was needed to get a straight answer from the Pentagon."
Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama agreed with Gaetz's assessment and stated that the troops should not be used as a vanguard for the left's social agenda. He promised that the investigation would be carried out after the new House of Representatives Republican majority was in place in January.
