Senior military calls for Tucker Carlson to make fun of women serving in the armed forces: his words ‘don’t reflect our values’

Carlson, who is effectively the face of Fox and hosts the top show on the right-wing channel, mocked President Joe Biden on Tuesday for saying the US military designed a uniform that fit women appropriately, created maternity flight suits for pregnant women, and updated requirements for hairstyles.

“So we have new hairstyles and maternity flying suits,” shouts Carlson. “Pregnant women will fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the US military.”

Carlson’s comments sparked strong reactions from some senior members of the US military who took to Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday to summon Carlson for what they described as the harmful and divisive rhetoric.

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Thursday that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin shared the same “disgust” expressed by several military commanders over comments made by Carlson.

Kirby said the military still had “a lot of work to do” to become “more inclusive and respectful of all – especially women.”

“We pledge to do a better job, and we will,” Kirby said. “What we will never do is take individual advice from a talk show host, or from the Chinese military. Maybe these people feel they have something to prove. This is on them.”

The pointed comments from Kirby came as a number of senior military commanders criticized Carlson for his speech.

“Women lead our most lethal unit of character. They will dominate whatever future battlefield we call to fight.” chirp Army Sgt. Major Michael A. Greenstone. “@ TuckerCarlson’s words are divisive, and do not reflect our values. We have the most professional, educated, agile and strongest NCOs in the world.”
General Paul Funk, as Chief of the Army Training Command and Doctrine Command, establishes policy and directs future changes to the forces, chirp That “thousands of women are served with honor every day all over the world.”

“They are beacons of freedom and prove Carlson wrong with determination and dedication,” Funk added. “We are fortunate to have served with us.”

The enlisted commander in the US Space Command, Master Gunnery Sgt. Scott H. Stalker, Post a video In which he described Carlson’s show as a “TV drama” and said he wanted to “remind everyone” that Carlson’s opinion “was based on the absence of service days in the Armed Forces.”
Major General Patrick Donahue Post a video From it, “he recruited one of the tens of thousands of women who serve in our army.”
Donahue said, “Just a reminder that TuckerCarlson couldn’t be more wrong.” Fort Hood Deputy Commander General John B. Richardson IV chirp, “Mothers in uniform are fighting and winning our nation’s wars. Fathers in uniform are fighting and winning our nation’s wars. Soldier is not a gendered name.”

Lieutenant General Theodore D. Martin said a photo of his daughter and said that “contrary to what you might hear, she and other women” do “not” mock our army. “

“You wish your daughter was as wonderful as mine!” Martin added. “So back off.”

A Fox spokesman did not respond to a request for comment Thursday morning.

Programming on Fox has gotten tighter in the past several years and even more so after the November election when it saw competition from smaller channels showcasing their conservative audiences.

Gone are the days when Fox marketed itself as a “fair and balanced” news channel long ago. Most of the channel’s shows are now filled with right-wing comments.

Even Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch admitted recently that he viewed the network’s role in the Biden years as a “loyal opposition” to the White House.
