A new GOP report is speaking out against the inclusion of critical race theory and gender identity training in the military.
The report claims that the new "woke" practices are weakening the military's readiness for combat.

"Our military's singular purpose is to 'provide for the common defense' of our nation," the report said. "It cannot be turned into a left-wing social experiment. It cannot be used as a cudgel against America itself. And it cannot be paralyzed by fear of offending the sensibilities of Ivy League faculty lounges or progressive pundits," the report stated.
"The world is a dangerous place, and the Biden administration's insanity is eroding our greatest source of security in it," it added.
WAR ON WOKE: Roy, Rubio Drop Report Highlighting Pentagon Policies Weakening U.S. Military https://t.co/daoFJOkG3k

Congressmen Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released an 18-page report on Monday entitled Woke Warfighters highlighting the destructive DEI policies weakening the U.S. Military, Hannity reported.
"The report was meant to lay the groundwork for the lawmakers' forthcoming 'Restoring Military Focus Act,' which would eliminate the Pentagon's chief diversity officer position responsible for implementing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives in the DoD," according to the New York Post.
Both congressmen condemned the military's inclusion of the leftist practices as harmful to the nation's national security.
"We need to spend more time thinking about how to counter Chinese aircraft carriers and less time thinking about pronouns," Rubio said.
The report also comes ahead of the GOP taking back power in the House in January.
Republicans may soon launch an investigation or other plans to remove the controversial areas from military training, despite pushback from the Biden administration.
