US Navy tells staff on ‘extremism’ training course they can advocate for BLM at work but they are NOT allowed to discuss ‘politically partisan issues’

The US Navy’s training on ‘extremism’ says staff can advocate for Black Lives Matter (BLM) while at work but service members are not allowed to discuss ‘politically partisan issues’, training slides reveal. 

The Navy described BLM as a ‘public policy issue’ in the slides and advocating for the organisation was allowed as long as the behavior is lawful. 

But they stated that advocacy would be prohibited if it was ‘politically partisan in nature’.
