General Milley’s Comments: Grossly Cynical, Not Woke

Most of America’s elites believe that the Left is the dominant force in American politics. As J.D. Vance recently pointed out at the Claremont Institute, they’re probably right. Milley’s recent comments on Critical Race Theory do not reveal his “woke-ness” but his extreme cynicism: in order to get greater funding for the military, he believes he must kowtow to the Left and impugn the Right. It’s as simple as that.
