A recruitment video released by the U.S. intelligence agency, CIA, was harshly criticized and ridiculed on social media. Instead of appealing to patriotism, courage, and the courage to give one’s life for one’s country in service, it features a woman promoting gender diversity as an essential value and talking about the alleged racism that marked her life.
Actual quotes from this new CIA recruitment ad:
"I am a woman of color"
"I am a cisgender millennial"
"I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder"
"I am intersectional"
I think it's safe to say the contemporary American left has failed.pic.twitter.com/ruUzWSeIur

“I am a woman of color. I am a mom. I am a cisgender millennial who has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder,” the woman says in the CIA ad.
“I used to struggle with impostor syndrome. But at 36, I refuse to internalize misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be,” adds the woman who appears to be Mexican or of Latina ethnicity.
“I earned my way in and I earned my way up the ranks,” the agent declares, adding that she is “tired of feeling like I am supposed to apologize for the space I occupy.”
The video drew criticism and ridicule from conservative journalists and netizens in general.
Megan McCain, the daughter of the former Republican senator, said, “This CIA recruitment video is a joke and a real embarrassment to our entire country. China, Russia and our enemies are laughing at us.”

Director and producer Robby Starbuck complained, “This is a real video released by the CIA. All institutions are being destroyed by the left woke. If we don’t stop this, America will fall. I bet instead of waterboarding (form of torture of pouring water over a cloth on the face), they will unleash the real torture on terrorists: listening to ‘progressives’ talk for hours about every social issue.”

User Aisha Ahmad mocked, “When you don’t know if the one speaking is AOC or the CIA.”

The video on the CIA YouTube channel has 477 likes against 5962 thumbs down, reflecting the disapproval of the woke culture from Americans.
Beyond the fact that the role of intelligence agencies worldwide is questionable due to the famous “clandestine operations” that end up being used to assassinate opponents, or silence critical voices, the CIA is a military arm of the defense department. It traditionally recruits candidates with physical skills and a sense of patriotism.
But the promotion of the LGBT agenda is rife in the Biden administration.
Before taking over as defense secretary, Lloyd Austin promised to remove “extremists and racists” from the military’s troops.
Sebastian Gorka, a former member of Trump’s National Security Education Council, asserted that:
“The Biden administration is working with the Senate and House intelligence committees to make amendments to an executive order from the 1980s—it’s called 12333—to permit the NSA and the CIA to target U.S. citizens as domestic terror threat.”
According to Gorka, the defense secretary seeks to ensure that the military obeys the government’s new leftist agenda through this action. Those who don’t will be kicked out, clearing the way to go after conservatives.
In less than five months, Biden is turning the strongest and most powerful country in the world into a progressive circus paving the way to socialism that will inevitably lose the respect of the world.
