You get to face and confront the worst, ugliest actors on the political stage, Mikey.  Thank you for standing up to these bullies!

Initial excerpts:
There’s a new organization in town — and by “in town” I mean in Colorado Springs, aka the Evangelical Vatican. This new organization is called STARRS, which stands for Stand Together Against Racism and Radicalism in the Services. That doesn’t sound like a bad thing, does it? Unless what you mean by being “against racism and radicalism” is being against the Black Lives Matter movement and the bugaboo of Critical Race Theory. The organization was formed in reaction to the U.S. Air Force Academy football team making a video in support of Black Lives Matter. This was too much for the founders of STARRS to bear. According to Rod Bishop, Lt Gen, USAF (Ret), STARRS board of directors chairman and president: “The video was naïve and an unintended endorsement of a Marxist political organization, Black Lives Matter, and we discovered the invasion of this poisonous neo-Marxist ideology was occurring across the Services.”
STARRS, claims its press release, has grown to over 3,000 members and is working now with the military. According to Bishop: “We are addressing issues to promote unity, not division. STARRS seeks to educate military leaders, the men and women that serve, and the American people of the dangers of the cojoined, anti-American ideology of neo-Marxism and Critical Race Theory.”
On a November 3 podcast called “The Professor’s Record with David K. Clements,” STARRS co-founder and vice president, Ron Scott, a retired Air Force colonel, explained that STARRS, because they are retired military, can do what active duty personnel can’t. According to Scott, the problem for active duty service members is that they’re not being asked to do anything that’s illegal so there is nothing they can do about this so-called Marxist indoctrination, histrionically adding: “If you recall, during the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler advanced to positions of power legally, and all of his actions, all of his orders were legal, and so that becomes a real dilemma for those that are active duty.”
The STARRS press release also lists a number of organizations that STARRS is “collaborating with,” and that what really caught our attention here at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF). As MRFF founder and president Mikey Weinstein put it, STARRS and its collaborator are a “rogues gallery of fundamentalist Christian nationalist villains with whom we have crossed swords in the past.”
