Extremism in the Armed Forces, Hearing Before the Committee on Armed Services, U.S. House of Representatives, One Hundred Seventeenth Congress, First Session, March 24, 2021 [open pdf - 6MB]
This is from the March 24, 2021 hearing, "Extremism in the Armed Forces," before the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Adam Smith: "[P]eople who serve in the military are entitled to have political views. Those views will undoubtedly be different from each other, and we have to figure out how to make that work. But extremism itself is something that goes way beyond that, and something that we are concerned about. I want to sort of put it into two categories for the purpose of this hearing. One is the concerns that we have with a rise in white supremacy and white nationalism, and racism. [...] Lastly, there is a growing extremism that I am really troubled by and that is sort of anti-government extremism." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michael Berry, Lecia Brooks, and Audrey Kurth Cronin.
