America’s oldest military academy has descended into chaos as a new managerial hire has begun imposing his social agenda on the rank and file.
“Reject the woke assault, close ranks!” calls out the headline in Daily Mail, which then explained that former students of Virginia Military Institute had launched online warfare against “its first black superintendent for pushing diversity, equity and inclusion policies.”
The report detailed, “The controversy at the Virginia Military Institute has been simmering since October 2020, when then-Governor Ralph Northam ordered a probe into reports of widespread racism at the institution, and the school’s board voted to remove a Confederate statue on campus.”
The Washington Post said the opposition was to the so-called “diversity, equity and inclusion” agenda being imposed by Supt. Cedric T. Wins, whose leadership has led to a 25% drop in freshman enrollment as he collected a $656,000 salary plus a $100,000 bonus.
A PAC run by 1985 VMI graduate Matt Daniel, a former Marine, has charged, “Reject the woke assault on VMI, close ranks. We stand for a strong VMI with a proud history and a bright future.”
The school recently ordered the removal of a statue of Gen. Stonewall Jackson.
The Daily Mail reported VMI is one of six U.S. senior military colleges, designated to offer Reserve Officers’ Training Corps programs. It was begun in 1839 and became a source of officers for the Confederacy during thte Civil War.

Northam ordered a investigation after allegations of racism there, and the board then appointed Wins.
The PAC has opposed Wins’ agenda to pursue the DEI “Marxist doctrine at the center of the malignancy of identity politics.”
Wins has claimed the school is “moving forward, forward-focused, with the bedrock of Institute fundamentals defended and even brighter days ahead…”
The state investigation claimed that a racial disparity exists among cadets, and although VMI “has no explicitly racist or sexist policies that it enforces, the facts reflect an overall racist and sexist culture.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.
This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.
This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.
Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.
That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
