[The new commisar looks strikingly like Alexander Semyon Vindman off Russiagate infamy.
“Here I leave this and slowly retire (to continue working from home),” Torres-Estrada wrote in Spanish in the June 2020 Hitler post, which itself received a “partly false information” notice and a ‘fact check’ from Facebook. The platform explained the photo of the Nazi strongman used in the post had been photoshopped to more closely resemble an image of Trump.
In another Facebook missive from last July, Torres-Estrada shared a meme of the then-president featuring quotes from former Trump officials deeming him “a f**king moron,”“an idiot surrounded by clowns” and “a dope,” with the newly-hired official adding a caption: “I just have to post this…”
Detractors online took aim at both Torres-Estrada’s apparent partisanship, as well as the notion that a military force meant to tap only the most elite and qualified troops would now recruit based on “inclusion,” rather than merit.
“Quiet professionals filling quotas and purifying the ideology to make sure SOF [Special Operations Force] is palatable to a political party?” one critic asked. “I thought SOF just recruited the biggest, most athletic, baddest, most intelligent soldiers.”
Torres-Estrada follows a pattern in new hires in the Harris-Biden Administration as per the Cuban born DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and the Head of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Bacerra in that their goal seems to be to model the U.S. government and armed forces after the Soviet Union or Communist Cuba under Fidel Castro. Think of the commisar on board the submarine in “Hunt for Red October” whose mission statement was to enforce ideological purity among the crew and officers. At the very least, the party elite will mirror, ethnically, the ruling elite in Latin America. Perhaps we have a Falkland Islands / Malvinas type military disaster awaiting us as did Argentina under their former military junta to coincide with an economic collapse as describe by Naomi Klein in her book Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. — S.Byron Gassaway
