Sen. Tom Cotton says woke training at the Air Force Academy “brings discredit” and he’s demanding answers

By Matt Connelly

The Washington Free Beacon recently reported that the United States Air Force Academy is “training its cadets to “use inclusive language” that bars them from calling people “terrorists” or using male and female identifiers, according to an official presentation being used by the elite military school and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.”

Yesterday, Senator Tom Cotton was in Colorado campaigning for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe O’Dea and Campfire Colorado founder Matt Connelly asked Senator Cotton about the Free Beacon’s report: 

“Well, no one joins our military to learn how to use the right pronouns,” said Senator Tom Cotton. “They join the military to learn how to kill the bad guys. It brings discredit on the Air Force Academy to have this kind of training in place there. So, I’ve demanded answers and I hope the Superintendent there takes it seriously and if he didn’t know about it I hope he takes remedial action promptly.”
