The US Marine Corps is in full retreat, but not from enemy soldiers. Instead they are falling back after a failed battle with Fox News host Tucker Carlson after a controversy involving him criticizing Biden’s top military brass and questioning the role of pregnant women in the military.
After Carlson’s criticism of the military’s current questionable priorities the official Twitter account for Marines issued a series of tweets, one of which included the words ‘get right before you get left, boomer.’ The Maines were since forced to delete the bizarre and unprofessional tweets.
As The Daily Wire reports:
On Thursday, Carlson questioned the Pentagon’s priorities after it announced the creation of flight suits for pregnant women amid escalating tensions between China and the U.S. The II Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) Information Group (IG) responded to Carlson on Friday in a series of since-deleted Twitter posts.
“What it looks like in today’s armed forces @TuckerCarlson. Get right before you get left, boomer,” the II MEF IG posted along with a photo of a female soldier carrying another, according to The Washington Examiner. In another post responding to a critical Twitter user, the unit’s official account said, “come back when you’ve served and been pregnant.”
The U.S. Marine Corps later walked back the posts after taking heat for launching “political attacks” against a civilian and media figure…
On Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) demanded a meeting with the commandant of the Marine Corps over a string a military officials and accounts attempting to “intimidate” Carlson. Cruz sent a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin condemning the “campaign” against Carlson. The senator said the campaign “has alternated between being ostentatiously childish and simply outrageous.”
