Well, that’s a little bit refreshing. Nevertheless, the reassignment is temporary pending an “investigation.”
Not surprising that the “diversity” expert doesn’t like diversity of opinion.
According to Fox News:
The Pentagon’s new diversity chief has been “reassigned” amid an investigation of past social media posts including comparing former President Trump to Adolph Hitler, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday.
The U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has been investigating the social media activity of Richard Torres-Estrada, days after he was announced as their new head of diversity and inclusion.
A spokesman said Torres-Estrada has not been fired but rather “assigned to other duties pending the results of the investigation.”
“The Commander has directed an investigation to look into the facts surrounding Mr. Torres-Estrada’s selection,” said Ken McGraw, a spokesman for the US Special Operations Command. “It would be inappropriate to comment on specifics until the evaluation is complete.”
Pentagon press secretary John Kirby confirmed the existence of the investigation during a Monday press briefing in response to a question about Torres-Estrada’s past posts. One social media posting juxtaposed a picture of Trump holding a Bible next to an image of Hitler.
