Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Wednesday successfully fought a Democrat amendment to a defense bill that would have required defense contractors to report on the racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of their board of directors and submit their plans on diversity.
Gaetz, who has been a leading advocate in the House against wokeness in the military, tag-teamed with Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), to kill the amendment, proposed by Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD). The amendment would have required defense contractors with Pentagon contracts over $150,000 to produce these reports to Congress.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This is a doubledown on wokeness in the military,” Gaetz argued. “It extends the wokeness in the military to a mandate on the private sector that supports the mission.”
In his statement against the amendment, Gaetz said he just spoke to
a Democrat in his district who is in the Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) space:
“I asked him, at your company, what did you guys do for Pride Month? And he laughed at me and said, We’re in the munitions and missiles testing business, we just focus on our mission. And I said, Well, you better be ready to answer what you did for pride bond. How what’s your plan for, you know, minority board members by 2050 at a certain percentage or ratio? It’s just craziness, whether it’s in our military or in the private sector,” Gaetz said.
WATCH the full two-minute exchange below, which concludes with Gaetz getting the amendment scuttled.
