Political correctness + the military = military correctness

Military correctness is a military’s form of political correctness, too often with deadly implications.

As we move into President Obama’s second term, expect military correctness to explode, literally, as Joe Biden might say.

Consider the following scenario: a White House insider turns out to be a murderous traitor. He makes his way to the Oval Office and wearing a suicide vest, kills himself and the President. Witnesses hear him yelling, “Allahu Akbar,” as he detonates the device.

While normal human beings would consider such a horrible, yet hypothetical, event to be terrorism, based on the Fort Hood principle of military correctness, it should instead be called an act of workplace violence.

Our politicos have long used the military as their own social science sandbox and many of our general officers are successful in the military because of their political skills. What, if anything, will the Department of Defense and the military services do to combat military correctness in the President’s second term?

Here’s my expectation on the subject: only initiatives that are detrimental to readiness and to good order and discipline will be processed for approval.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
