Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) recently complained that “toxic masculinity” is “not accepted” in the military anymore and said she would have thought it would be a leading requirement to get in.
“They purged the military,” the extremist congresswoman said during an appearance on the “Dear America” podcast hosted by Graham Allen, a right-wing media personality and Army veteran.
“The warriors are leaving,” Allen said.
“Absolutely,” Greene added. “Why do they want to be there? They’re going through woke training. Their toxic masculinity is completely not accepted, even though, what are the military for? I would think toxic masculinity would be a No. 1 requirement.”
“They should be like, ‘Are you a toxic male? Please sign up,’” she added.

The comments came as the two complained about COVID-19 vaccination policies in the military and for law enforcement, and the low recruitment figures for the Army and Navy this year.
Graham wondered whether the outcome of the Uvalde, Texas, school massacre would’ve been different if we “wouldn’t have lost all our warriors” due to COVID-19 vaccination policies.
“Now we have to ask the same question about our military,” he said.
Nearly 400 law enforcement officials were at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde while a lone teen gunman raged inside classrooms for more than an hour, killing 19 children and two teachers. A report written by an investigative committee from the Texas state House found the police response to be “lackadaisical” and riddled with “systemic failures.”
