Criticism continues to mount over the CIA’s embrace of the corrosive “woke” culture with a series of recruitment ads. Many are suggesting they send the wrong message to America’s adversaries in an increasingly dangerous world.
The CIA is joining major corporations, the military, and other governmental agencies now controlled by Joe Biden and the identity-obsessed Democrats. They have apparently decided that its hiring choices will now be dictated by “intersectionality”, the ideological principle underpinning of the left’s jihad against traditional values.
The ad that is drawing the most attention features a Hispanic woman named Mija, a self-described “cisgender millennial who’s been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder“. She would seem hardly ideal for a high-stress job that requires dealing with ruthless adversaries who want to destroy America.
The reaction was brutal with the ad being slammed by everyone from Donald Trump Jr. who tweeted “China & Russia are laughing their asses off watching CIA go full woke.”
China & Russia are laughing their asses off watching CIA go full woke. “Cisgender.” “Intersectional.” It’s like @TheBabylonBee is handling CIA’s comms. If you think about it, wokeness is the kind of twisted PSYOP a spy agency would invent to destroy a country from the inside out.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz slammed the ad as not exactly striking fear into the hearts of the nation’s adversaries in Beijing, Tehran, and North Korea.
If you’re a Chinese communist, or an Iranian Mullah, or Kim Jong Un…would this scare you?

Former Secretary Of State Mike Pompeo who briefly headed up the CIA also threw in his two cents while illustrating how far that the CIA has slipped in Biden’s first 100 days.
When I was Director of the CIA, we valued individuals based on their talent and skill, not their race or sexuality. I’ll never forget what one female analyst said to me: “Thank you for valuing me for my work. I want my abilities and achievements to define me, not my sexuality.”

“When I was Director of the CIA, we valued individuals based on their talent and skill, not their race or sexuality.” He tweeted.
Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grennell hit the mark by pointing out that the ad is only going to serve as a magnet for “people with anxiety and race trauma issues“. This is not a healthy prospect when considering how the federal government has been weaponized by Biden against Trump supporters and white people in general.
The @CIA video is an ad to recruit people with anxiety and race trauma issues.
We should help those employees already in the IC with their personal issues but we shouldn’t do recruiting videos around the subject.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson discussed the ad during an interview with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald. The liberal weighed in on how the left has mutated into champions of the totalitarian surveillance practices they once opposed, and their newfound loyalties have been cynically exploited by the Intelligence Community.

According to Greenwald, “It used to be in the Cold War that it was the left that distrusted the CIA, hated the CIA and the right loved it, that has completely reversed,” he said. “If you look at polling data it’s liberals and Democrats who love the CIA because the CIA was on their side during the entire Trump era.”
He added, “...the people at the CIA, this really is their ideology. It’s the ideology of the Democratic party, it’s not a radical ideology, it’s the ideology of power,”
Greenwald also brought up Barack Obama’s former CIA director John Brennan who now works as one of the house propagandists at MSNBC. “There’s another amazing video of John Brennan besides the one you played where he went on MSNBC and said I’m humiliated to be a white man. They really believe this ideology; it’s ruling class ideology although leftists believe it’s the ideology of liberation.”
Greenwald continued; “I think the most important thing is wokeness, this ideology is not about subverting power centers. They never talk about power centers, the CIA, big tech monopolies, hedge fund managers… it’s about turning citizens against one another. This individual is evil, this individual is bad, it empowers these ruling class centers, that’s why they not only embrace it and cynically exploit it, they actually finance it, they want to spread it because it entrenches and strengthens their power.”
That wokeness has now consumed the most powerful federal espionage and law enforcement institutions in the nation. Coming at a time when Biden has declared open war on any opposition to one-party permanent Democrat rule (and especially Trump supporters) is a chilling prospect. Those Americans will now face being targeted solely based their political affiliations by a ruthless and determined ideology that has designated them enemies of the government in their own country.
