US Air Force Academy in Colorado is blasted for holding woke 'diversity and inclusion' summit that saw cadets ordered to ditch 'gendered' language including mom, dad, boyfriend and girlfriend

The US Air Force Academy is under fire for holding diversity and inclusion training that urges cadets to use non-gendered language, scrapping words like 'mom,' and 'dad', as well as 'girlfriend' and 'boyfriend.'

According to screenshots from the seminar, obtained by FOX News Digital, Air Force training officials are asking recruits to use generic terms like 'partner' instead of 'boyfriend' or 'girlfriend,' and 'parent' or 'parents' instead of 'mom' and 'dad.'

The slides shared by FOX News prompted outrage from many across the country, including Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL).

Waltz, a Green Beret and Afghan War veteran, spoke with the news agency about his feelings regarding what he calls 'destructive' lessons being taught to young cadets.

He even compared the workshops to those seen in the communist Soviet Union and China, held to push extreme ideologies on recruits.

'That is absolutely destructive to morale, to unity, to everything that I know from a military, that by the way, integrated way before the rest of the country in 1948,' Waltz said in the interview.

The Academy is recommending that trainees adopt 'person centered' language, using 'person with disabilities' rather than 'disabled,' or 'transgendered people/service members' rather than 'transgenders.'

'Y'all', 'folks' and 'squaddies' are also given a thumbs up, according to the slides, while 'guys' is out.

The move is part of a push for diversity and inclusion within the Air Force and other armed force branches.

An Air Force Academy spokesperson said in a statement that the training is to help prepare cadets to for any and all future conflict.

'As part of the Diversity & Inclusion Cadet Leadership Program, this conversation was developed by cadet leaders and USAFA staff to introduce all cadets to Department of the Air Force definitions of diversity and inclusion, as well as how these concepts enhance our warfighting effectiveness,' the spokesperson said.  

The seminar also included diversity of thought experience that required cadets to name as many animals that start with 'G' and then come together with a group to see how many they were able to get individually, as opposed to when everyone combined their lists.

Training also suggested that phrases such as 'colorblind,' 'I don't see color,' and 'we're all just people' be phased out.

A whole generation has been taught that their own culture is the most toxic culture on earth which couldn't be further from the truth.

The culture they are denigrating is the FIRST culture to stop and re-examine it's activities in the past and stop justifying them as something good. The rest of the cultures piling on against our culture have never done that and are still actively denying grievous acts their culture has done and in many cases are still doing.

And yet those who would tear down this first truly enlightened culture deliberately blind themselves to the truth because they'd rather believe the lies.
