CRT Still Being Taught at West Point


CRT Still Being Taught at West Point

West Point recently held a Majors Fair for 2027 cadets. Among the photos:

Real adult war-fighting stuff going on with “SOCIOLOGY” written in balloon cartoon letters with green and purple chalk.

Look closely (see photo below, click to enlarge) and you’ll see written underneath DEI language:

“Firstie Projects (2024)”

  • Leadership and Identity
  • Cultural impacts on team
  • Special Operations and culture
  • Inclusive Military Leadership
  • Identity Conflict among Cadet Athletes

Next to it: “Diversity & Inclusion Studies Minor”

  • PL377: Social Inequality
  • EN352: Power and Differences
  • SS392: Politics of Race

And then the rest is partially covered by the cadet, but you can see the words “race” and “sex”. As a fellow cadet over at the Air Force Academy said, “identity politics on steroids”. Oh, and in the corner, in the Fall, a military cadet can take PL377: Social Inequality. CRT is STILL being taught at West Point.

Another photo showed a History Major handout, and a close-up screenshot (click to enlarge) shows “Department-Level Courses” in:

  • HI410: Violence and Sex: History of War (this is what they are teaching future war fighters?)
  • HI461: Topics in Gender History
  • HI463: Race, Ethnicity, Nation

Is this a military academy teaching war fighting or a liberal arts college?

What life was like when military academies were actually military academies: STARRS President Col. Ron Scott, PhD, USAFA ’73, commented, “I graduated with 197 semester credit hours (some earned through testing upon entry)–I had 27 semester hours (one evening course on nuclear biology) the spring semester of my junior year.  None of the course offerings included ‘humanities’ courses.”

As always, when we see useless things like what is shown in the above two photographs, we’re reminded of General Douglas MacArthur’s speech to West Point cadets in 1962:

“. . . And through all this welter of change and development your mission remains fixed, determined, inviolable.

It is to win our wars. Everything else in your professional career is but corollary to this vital dedication.

All other public purpose, all other public projects, all other public needs, great or small, will find others for their accomplishments; but you are the ones who are trained to fight.

Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be Duty, Honor, Country. . . .”


To preserve, defend, and advocate for West Point's history, purpose, and principles of Duty, Honor, Country.
