Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec reacted to the Navy’s newly released gender pronoun training video, which features two people explaining the formalities around correct pronoun use, by introducing one’s self as “he/him”, “she/her”, and “they/them”.
Posobiec, himself a former Navy intelligence Officer, expressed disbelief over the video, saying that he thought it was something out of a sketch show like SNL.
“Gee,” Posobiec began. “I wish I was in the Navy. Boy, the Navy sure has changed since I got out. I gotta tell you, looking at videos like this, I thought… When [my producers] first showed me this video from the US Navy, I thought it was a parody. I thought, is this SNL or MadTV or some sketch thing where they’re making fun of the Navy?…No, no. It’s real. This is reality, this is real life. Embrace the suck,” he said.
“So, you’ve got these two people–I don’t even know who they are. Are they actors, are they professors or experts of some sort?– giving this weird, contrived monologue about gender and pronouns and, ‘don’t feel bad if you accidentally misgender somebody. But don’t put the onus on the other person’… These are speech codes, okay? Cut the crap. This is a speech code being imposed, not just on the United States, that’s eventually where they want to go, but they want to get across the entire US Navy,” said Posobiec.
Yuri Bezmenov, a former high-ranking Soviet defector warned of “semantic manipulation of population, or word pollution,” whereby “the normal true meaning of the words and traditionally accepted meanings are being gradually replaced by Orwellian type surrogates, partly or totally opposite to the reality,” as described in notes from his famous lecture on Subversion.
