The Army has officially said that it is unclear who is distributing handouts and sending emails which are labeling certain behaviors & terms, such as Make America Great Again, as white supremacy.  

The question is why are politically motivated materials even being distributed by the military?

Why is there an "Operation Inclusion?"

Our friends at Fox News covered the controversial story:

The U.S. Army is investigating after a handout was distributed to personnel on an Army base in Alabama that included an image describing President Trump's 2016 “Make America Great Again” slogan as a form of covert White supremacy.

The handout, sent to personnel at Redstone Arsenal, invited all soldiers and personnel to attend an “Operation Inclusion” listening seminar. Rep. Mo  Brooks, R-Ala., who first brought attention to the handout, said it was sent to personnel at the base from an official government email address and created by the U.S. Army Equality and Inclusion Agency. He believes it could have been sent to thousands of personnel.

Included in the handout was a pyramid graphic with behaviors identified as “overt white supremacy (socially unacceptable)” such as racial slurs and hate crimes. Beneath that are listed things classed as “covert" or socially acceptable forms of “white supremacy.”

The long list of items include “calling the police on black people,” “respectability politics,” celebrating Columbus Day, as well as saying “all lives matter” and “Make America Great Again” — President Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan.

The Army website describes Project Inclusion as an Army initiative, directed by the Secretary and the Chief of Staff to "improve diversity, equity, and inclusion across the force and build cohesive teams.”
