The Biden administration’s National Security Strategy — a document that typically outlines a new administration’s foreign policy guiding principles, goals, and aspirations — touted the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI — a term encapsulating programs and trainings based on Critical Race Theory, which has its roots in Marxism.
The NSS also calls for an “energy revolution,” and uses the term “climate” more times than “China” or its official name, the “People’s Republic of China,” or the PRC, despite China being America’s top long-term national security challenge.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), ranking member of the House Armed Services subcommittee on cyber, innovative technologies and information systems, said in a statement to Breitbart News:
At the same time the President is recklessly warning of nuclear war, Joe Biden’s National Security Strategy is focused on ‘promoting diversity and inclusion’ and claims ‘climate change is the greatest’ shared threat to the world. Biden’s wokeness is America’s weakness.
The prominence of Critical Race Theory within the NSS was particularly unusual, since the strategy documents typically focus on national security challenges, but the Biden administration suggested that “strengthening our democracy” was a national security imperative.
“Our democracy is a work in progress—and by reckoning with and remedying our own shortcomings, we can inspire others around the world to do the same,” it said, before calling for election reform — a key Democratic Party agenda item — and “pluralism, inclusion, and diversity.”
