As everyone on Twitter could see on June 1st when the Marine Corps Twitter account issued this tweet with a hilarious image of a homosexual helmet:
Throughout June, the USMC recognizes and honors the efforts of our LGBTQ service members by using the hashtag #Pride. We are dedicated to promoting a discrimination-free environment and to upholding the ideals of treating everyone with dignity and respect.
Throughout June, the USMC takes #Pride in recognizing and honoring the contributions of our LGBTQ service members.

The US Marine Corps, formerly known for being full of tough-as-nails leathernecks capable of defeating any opponent, fighting against seemingly impossible odds, and overcoming every impediment America’s foes threw in its way, is now preaching wokeness on Twitter.
One Twitter user, probably encapsulating how many Americans feel at their finest, stated,
“Maybe focus on what’s actually important to the nation’s defense. China and Russia are bolstering up their ranks with masculinity understanding it’s necessity, while we seem to be celebrating sexual choices and gender changes in our military.”
This is an insult to all Marines who died for America.— Sebastian Gorka DrG (@SebGorka) June 1, 2022
They didn’t die for the Corps to virtue-signal. https://t.co/VaygqwXPH4
Absolutely. Perhaps, at a time when Red China appears set to seize Taiwan and the Russians are mowing through a country in Eastern Europe that we persist on backing, it might be better if the military focused on winning wars rather than waking up, especially since we haven’t won a war since 1991.
The job of the @usmc is to win wars. Full stop. Trying to make the Marines woke distracts from that mission.— Dr. Rich McCormick for Congress (@RichforGA) June 1, 2022
When I was in the Marines we had one mantra that fostered an environment free from discrimination:
“We all wear green and we all bleed red”. That’s all we need. https://t.co/g4urZk8tlu
But that was only one remark. Many more also spoke up. June is PTSD Awareness Month in the United States. The Marines have yet to tweet about it.
