Now, let’s start off with the basic principle that the CIA was headed by John Brennan during the Obama years, so you know that there are likely some serious lingering issues there.
People appear to have completely memory-holed how the CIA under Brennan spied on Congress, how Brennan lied about it and how no one was ever punished for it.
Things like that might make you concerned about the Agency being compromised by politics or influenced by one party.
So just in case you weren’t sure, the CIA decided that they were going to trumpet their politics in an ad that went viral today.
“I am a cisgender millennial who’s been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.” Um, okay? TMI. “I am intersectional,” she says but claims her existence is not a “box-checking exercise.” So why are you checking those boxes? “I used to struggle with imposter syndrome,” she declares. “But at 36, I refuse to internalize misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be.”
Yes, it’s real, as you can see part of it tweeted from their account.
"I am unapologetically me. I want you to be unapologetically you, whoever you are. Whether you work at #CIA, or anywhere else in the world.
Command your space. Mija, you are worth it."

This woman believes she’s a victim of some vast patriarchal system, despite apparently getting a prime position as a CIA officer at an agency that has long been a bastion of men. This is not giving me confidence in the CIA, not because she’s a woman, but because she seems to have issues. She sounds like a lot of leftist politicians to me, when I shouldn’t even know her politics.
Isn’t the job supposed to be about serving the United States against its enemies? Where is that in this ad? The purpose of the CIA isn’t supposed to be a place to work out your issues or declare your wokeness. It has a very specific purpose, the defense of the United States. How about detailing the qualifications for this job that you would need, rather than the woke points? Unless those are the qualifications you need?
What must our enemies think when they see ads like this, focused on everything but what the Agency is supposed to be about?
The intelligence community is supposed to be non-political. But we can now see more clearly than ever under Joe Biden how far the ‘fundamental transformation’ has come.
This insanity has infiltrated all our institutions from the CIA to the military. We saw this, too, when multiple members of the armed forces from official accounts went after Tucker Carlson in an inappropriate political display. Even the DOD website went after Carlson.
