The U.S. Air Force, which claims that its mission statement is "To fly, fight, and win…airpower anytime, anywhere," faced blowback Thursday on Twitter for peddling radical leftist gender ideology by recognizing Transgender Day of Visibility.
"Today is #TransDayofVisiblity," the Air Force tweeted, inviting people to watch a video of Under Secretary of the Air Force Gina Ortiz Jones interviewing Lt. Col. Bree Fram, a member of the Space Force — the tweet calls Fram the "highest-ranking openly transgender" Department of Defense officer.
The tweet comes as Russia, a nuclear-armed power, is invading Ukraine. It also comes as the U.S. faces the ongoing threat posed by an ever-ambitious communist China that continually seeks to expand its power on the world stage.
Responding to the Air Force's post, Blaze Media's Jessica O'Donnell questioned, "how does this help us with war and stuff."
"The enemies of America are laughing at us," Todd Starnes tweeted.
"We are going to lose a major war," Benny Johnson declared.
"When do we need to learn Chinese?" someone else tweeted.
"Im just going to state the obvious here. It defies common sense for the USAF to promote such utter nonsense," another person noted.
The tweet links to a post that declares, "The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning Initiatives Team (LIT) of the Department of the Air Force Barrier Analysis Working Group (DAFBAWG) highlighted and observed Transgender Day of Visibility (TDoV) on March 31."
"Today is a day to step back and reflect on the obstacles the trans community has overcome, recognize the work left to do, while celebrating all transgender and non-binary DAF personnel who are serving and thriving as their authentic selves," LIT Transgender Policies co-lead Master Sgt. Jamie Hash said, according to the post.
