One of the sappy and pandering recruitment videos in their “The Calling” series features Corporal Emma Malonelord from California. It had 61,000 dislikes and only 3,400 likes as of Saturday morning.
Sen. Ted Cruz has been attacked by the left for pointing out that the Army is being “emasculated.”
“Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is not the best idea….” Cruz tweeted on Thursday in response to the ad.
The Texas senator refused to apologize, adding in a subsequent tweet that “we have the greatest military on earth, but Dem politicians & woke media are trying to turn them into pansies.” Leftist outlets, including Mediaite, subsequently feigned outrage by claiming that “pansy” is a homophobic slur.
