Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton is one of the most conservative senators out there. He also served our republic in times of war. But even he knows when he smells a rat in the upper ranks as Lisa Haven reports.
One article Lisa cites is from last month in Breitbart when Texas GOP Congressman Dan Crenshaw started a whistleblower page for matters of communist globalist wokeness in the military.
Enough is enough. We won’t let our military fall to woke ideology. We have just launched a whistleblower webpage where you can submit your story. Your complaint will be legally protected, and go to my office and @SenTomCotton.
With written permission we will anonymously publish egregious complaints on social media and tell the country what’s happening in our military.
For too long, progressive Pentagon staffers have been calling the shots for our warfighters, and spineless military commanders have let it happen. Now we are going to expose you.

An article in the New York Post Tuesday further illustrates the team-up.
“We’ve received hundreds of whistleblower complaints about critical race theory being pushed on our soldiers,” the Arkansas senator wrote. “The problem is real — and worse than we thought.”
Reps for Cotton did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment on the exact number of tips, as well as their nature.
Reps for Crenshaw told The Post on Tuesday that their office had received “well over 300 serious, credible complaints” through the site.
One such example of a complaint…
A recently relieved Space Force commander claimed last month that the Pentagon sent service members a video claiming that America and white people were “evil.”
Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier told Fox News’ “Hannity” that the videos “were sent out to every base [and] servicemember” and “we were asked to watch [them] in preparation for our extremism down days and discussions on race.”
Those videos, Lohmeier added, “taught that the country was evil, that it was founded in 1619 and not 1776, and that whites are inherently evil.”
Lohmeier did not specify when the videos were sent out beyond saying it had happened “in the past ten months, when I was in command of a unit.”
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered a 60-day “stand down” of the entire US military back in February to allow for commanders to address the “threat.”
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby described the military-wide pause at the time as similar to stand downs that units have to conduct to address safety concerns.
