You're moving the goal posts.

I don't have discharge statistics for this year. Even if I had access to such information it would be for last year at this point in time.

How am I moving the goal posts?

You claimed that the military is drumming out soldiers simply because they're Trump supporters and claiming they're white supremacists.

I'm simply asking for proof. I don't need statistics. You should think that if it was happening en masse as you insinuate there would be a lot of angry, former, soldiers going online telling their story.

Of course if we look at reality, your narrative makes no sense. The reason why white supremacists, and I'm talking actual white supremacists, were able to join the military in the first place is because the military are desperate for bodies. Do you really think they're going to purge a large percentage of their rank-and-file at the same time they're gearing up for another war in the Middle East? Don't be ridiculous.

So because there are Communist insurgents in the Philippines, it justifies Duterte using the police and military to assassinate Left Wing political activists who have no history of having ties to this insurgents?

I'm sure there's also some scummy drug dealers there too. That doesn't change the fact that Duterte's War on Drugs is just one long series of human rights violations.

That's funny. When I was in the Navy I didn't see any white nationalism or white supremacy.

Did you serve in the US military? Did you see it first hand? Or, are you just taking the media's word for it?

Military readiness doesn't seem to matter to the military right now.

They're letting in transgendered people and paying for sex changes. The military is nothing more than another woke organization being used for social engineering and welfare.

It will be politicized that's already obvious. The purges are happening as I have already demonstrated and the woke indoctrination is occuring. They even tell you it is.

Now you want me to come up with information that likely no one has yet. That's called moving the goal posts.

I'm taking the military's word for it. Military Times conducted a poll of active servicemen in 2017, following the tragedy in Charlottesville, and again in 2019, following the arrest of Chris Hasson. Both polls found that 22% of servicemen had seen signs of white nationalism or racist ideologies.

On top of that, between 42% (2017) and over 50% (2019) of non-white servicemen had been the target of racism or racist ideology.

Once again, asking for proof of your claim is not moving the goal posts.

The only proof you've provided is that the military is cracking down on white supremacists. Considering the fact that those that support extremist ideologies are not supposed to be admitted into the military, I don't see how that's a bad thing. Especially when it's been a known problem for decades.

I remember that survey and when it came out I explained how it was bogus.

Long story short the sample size was extremely small and the methodology over all was garbage.

Anyways how does a thread on Duterte and the Philippines turn into a discussion about racism in the US military?

Because the Right in this country has such a persecution complex, they have to turn Leftists in another country being killed by their government into a circle jerk about how they're being discriminated against.

Can you explain this a little more clearly?

In other news. I'm involved in a discussion with some leftists where they are trying to say Duterte isn't a real Leftist, and that his political party isn't left wing either.

Leftists doing what they do best.

Sure. I made this thread about Duterte killing Leftists in the Philippines. Right Wingers then immediately began lamenting how that is their future in the US based on pretty much nothing other than their persecution complex.

Well, that and the sources you asked for and won't acknowledge in favor of data no one has.

Looks like they're literally fighting a war against the commies the commies are complaining that they're getting their ass kicked.

Not sure how much I'm supposed to care now...

Sorry for your losses OP.

Once again, the people that were killed had no connection to the insurgents. They were nothing more than unarmed political activists and community organizers.

Explain how that deserves being assassinated by your government.

None of the people assassinated by Duterte's regime were connected to the insurgents. Maybe that's why it wasn't brought up.
