(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – While the world is busy watching Bud Light burn itself to the ground by partnering up with a transgender activist, which has cost the beer brand billions of dollars, the United States Navy was discovered to have seemingly written the playbook on this ridiculous strategy, which has essentially had the same outcome, only instead of losing billions of dollars, the campaign has served to push folks away from wanting to join the Navy and serve their country.
It’s not going the way they hoped, I know, totally shocking, right? Only for those who don’t have their eyes open and their minds switched on.
According to Warner Todd Houston of The Western Journal, the Navy joined forces with Petty Officer 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, who just so happens to be a drag queen who goes by the stage name Harpy Daniels, in order to put out a marketing campaign on social media that was first launched in October.
The Navy responded to an article from the Daily Caller, explaining that the campaign was supposed to be a recruitment tool to increase enlistment numbers and hit goals that had been set for bringing individuals into the armed forces.
Because nothing communicates the warrior spirit and mentality one needs to have in order to be a fearsome fighting force like seeing a dude in lipstick and a dress, right? I mean, let’s face it. While women are definitely an increasing presence in the military, the main demographic of individuals who enlist are young men. The last thing red blooded American males, the type that make good soldiers, want to be associated with is an emasculated practice like drag.
Kelley, who claims he is “nonbinary,” was given the role of “Navy digital ambassador.” In a video posted on social media announcing the initiative, he referred to himself as an “advocate” for individuals who were, in his words, “oppressed for years in the service.”
The Navy also revealed that the ad campaign led by Kelley as its official face was “designed to explore the digital environment to reach a wide range of potential candidates.” They also pointed out that the drag queen was not paid for producing the ads.
Kelley has actually held performances on board several American naval vessels.
“He first started performing on ships after a sanctioned MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation) lip-syncing competition in 2017 while deployed on the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier,” the Daily Caller report noted.
“Kelley has also said that he was harassed by ‘conservatives and Christian extremists’ when he tried to put on a drag show at a ‘diversity, equity and inclusion’ event at Langley Joint Air Force Base last summer,” Houston penned.
“I’m an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and being able to do drag is not just for me, but a tribute to many service members who were kicked out, harassed, bullied or worse for being openly gay during Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” he stated during an interview with the USS Constitution Museum.
He added, “It shows representation, and that is truly needed for a culture and organization that has shunned us for so long.”
The U.S. military has been struggling with recruitment numbers for all of its branches, including the Navy. Much of this seemed to start right around the time that the government put vaccination mandates in place for all service members. And I can guarantee making a drag queen the face of your online campaign is not going to improve things.
Many former members of the Navy are displeased with the initiative, including Robert J. O’Neill, the SEAL member who killed infamous 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden. O’Neill posted a tweet saying, “Alright. The U.S. Navy is now using an enlisted sailor Drag Queen as a recruiter. I’m done. China is going to destroy us. YOU GOT THIS NAVY. I can’t believe I fought for this bulls***.”

Kurt Schlicter, a former Army colonel, was also disgusted by how weak the ad campaign makes the American military look on the global stage.
“My Navy father would have been appalled, but then he was in a Navy that won wars and didn’t run ships into each other,” Schlichter zinged on Twitter.

And that’s not all the Navy has done to cater to the rainbow brigade. They also put out a video for “Pride Month,” that tells recruits how they should use “preferred pronouns.”
“Using the right pronouns is a really simple way to affirm someone’s identity,” host Jony Rozon goes on to say in the video. “It is a signal of acceptance and respect.”
Is it any wonder that China feels so emboldened to send spy craft over our country now? Or for Russia and North Korea to continually disrespect us and flaunt their military power? How disgraceful.
