“Under DOD Directive 1344.10, members of the armed forces who are on active duty are NOT permitted to express their personal opinions on political candidates, make a monetary contribution to a campaign, sign a petition to place a candidate’s name on the ballot, and attend a political event as a spectator,”
The Department of Defense regulations state. “Members on active duty may not participate in partisan activities such as soliciting or engaging in partisan fundraiser activities, serving as the sponsor of a partisan club, or speaking before a partisan gathering. In addition, all military members, including National Guard and Reserve forces, are prohibited from wearing military uniforms at political campaign events.”
Liberal Military Members Spouting Their Political Beliefs Becoming More Commonplace
Unfortunately, military personal spewing their political beliefs has recently become an almost daily occurrence under the Biden administration.
In recent weeks a number of U.S. military officers and accounts have violated DOD prohibitions on political activities, including attacking Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his constitutionally protected opinions.
Four-star Army General Mark Funk, Commanding General Patrick Donahue, and the U.S. Marines’ Twitter account all issued statements on Twitter critical of Carlson.
The Marines’ account deleted the tweets shortly after Senator Ted Cruz demanded a meeting to discuss the matter with the Marines Commandant.
Under Biden, the military is launching political attacks to intimidate Tucker Carlson & other civilians who criticize their policy decisions.
Officials in uniform are being used for the campaign.
