Americans are shocked at the comparison of the Russian military to our American forces. Conservatives are sounding the alarm of the left’s attempt at converting our military from the world’s most dominant fighting force that preserved peace through strength into one that promotes members with mental health issues because it’s nicer.

The U.S. Army’s new recruitment video series, The Calling, has all the markings of left-wing propaganda. The video is part of a new animated series of videos highlighting the Army’s ability to be the “wokest” branch in the military.

The American video has an animated version of corporal Emma Malonelard self-narrating, “It begins in California, with a little girl raised by two moms. Although I had a fairly typical childhood, took ballet, played violin, I also marched for equality.” Malonelard claims that marching for “equality” with her mothers proves she liked “defending freedom from an early age.”


Former U.S. Marine Jessie Jane Duff wrote, “U.S. Army looks like it’s advertising Disney’s next Princess movie.”

Now compare this video with the recruitment video the Russian Army just put out.


The video is in Russian without an American translation, but it’s not needed. The imagery of a strong Russian soldier rising to train hard was inspiring. It’s not a story of an individual following their woke path to the military. The soldier isn’t saying they joined to “shatter stereotypes.” This soldier looks like he joined the Russian Army for the honor and glory of protecting his country.

John Hawkins wrote, “Russians are building a military focused on killing people and breaking things. We’re apparently building a military focused on being capable of explaining microaggressions and critical race theory to Afghan Tribesman.”

Senator from Texas Ted Cruz said, “Holy crap. Perhaps a woke, [an] emasculated military is not the best idea.”

Dean of Social Media for ‘Grace to You,’ Darrell B. Harrison tweeted, “As a veteran of the United States Army, I’m compelled to confess that this video is disturbing, to say the least. Trust me – woke won’t work against weapons. On the battlefield, the person trying to kill you won’t care one bit that you were raised by ‘two mommies.’ ”

Former United States Air Force Lt. Col. and Commander Buzz Patterson said, “We won the Cold War. Now, we’re losing it without a shot being fired. This is frightening.”

It’s hard to believe the American military will be ready for a fight when China and Russia come to our gates. Maybe we can ‘woke’ them to death.
