Declaration of Betrayal of West Point
And the Long Gray Line
“Concerned Graduates of West Point”
May 24, 2022
The Long Gray Line is the assembly of graduates of the United States Military Academy. It serves as a fount of American battle tested experience, the institutional memory of the Military Academy, and the watchdog of the United States Corps of Cadets. As such, it is the sacred duty of the Long Gray Line to challenge dysfunctional conduct or rogue behavior, such as that which has come to dominate West Point.
We, the members of the Long Gray Line, have observed a rejection of adherence to the ancient principles of the Military Academy. These changes threaten the mission of the Academy. It appears that the Honor Code is no longer enforced as it has been historically and has been allowed to fall into disarray.
The United States Military Academy has a proud tradition of producing graduates of character who have led the Country and the Academy through good times and bad. The Academy’s motto "Duty, Honor, Country" is widely associated with West Point. For decades, the Cadet Honor Code has provided the moral compass and ethical underpinning of a Cadet’s education and character development. The Code, widely quoted and embraced by every Superintendent, is simple.
The intention had been violations are not tolerated and expulsion will result. However, today, by the Academy's web site makes the casual web disclaimer that over 50% of convicted violators are excused and allowed to graduate. Words do have meaning: DUTY, HONOR COUNTRY has for decades reflected the ethics, honor, character and moral behavior of cadets and Academy graduates. The abuse of those words and values seriously erodes the ethical education and character development of today’s cadets.
Civilian faculty members have introduced political indoctrination into academic instruction to include socialist ideology that runs counter to the noble principles of the Constitution. The corruption of cadet instruction with socialist doctrine is further demonstrated by a pronounced bias in the selection of guest speakers, who have been almost exclusively liberal. We could not identify any conservative speakers in recent years.
Very troubling have been instances of the Academy Staff requiring cadets to violate their religious beliefs contrary to the religious freedom long observed by the Academy. Cadets have been coerced into complying with illegal orders – mandates – to submit to vaccinations with experimental drugs never approved by the FDA. Such mandates to involuntarily submit to vaccination with experimental drugs in violation of religious customs and beliefs is a violation of the UCMJ. It violates the precedent set by the Nuremburg War Crimes Tribunal that established the involuntary use of experimental drugs is a crime against humanity. Such conduct by the Staff is a gross violation of international law and the impartial administration of military justice by the Academy
Instruction in Critical Race Theory (CRT) at the Academy. Such instruction severs the ties of every cadet to defense of the Constitution, thereby nullifying the oath cadets have sworn to uphold. Critical Race theory now replaces Duty, Honor, Country. The cumulative impact of these changes has so altered the Military Academy that USMA betrays the purpose for which it was founded in 1802 – defense of our Constitution, and maintenance of individual freedom. This transformation betrays the purpose of the founders and the sacred principals of the Declaration of Independence.
Forging a Restored Consensus
Having declared the Military Academy to be in a state of radical change against its original mission, purpose, and principles, we ask where do we proceed from here?
We hold the belief that the work of the founders has produced a nation like no other. The constitutional order of the Republic rests upon fundamental principles that are unique to the United States of America. Our constitutions, State and Federal, are the most wonderfully designed documents that create an adhesive, cohesive, just, and peaceful means of life ever known by humanity. Our founders started this country that was born of revolution according to our universally appreciated laws of our Creator.
We have a beautiful system that has been corrupted and abused by people with no moral foundation. Our country was born of God’s inspiration and without God as the ultimate power and place for redress, no government can operate to serve their constituents. We need not look for a new system, we need only to restore the original constitution, which provided for States to have the primary authority and most power under their own constitutions designed to accommodate their local cultural norms, yet all of which are dependent on and arise from God’s laws.
Leftist ideologues are trying to replace personal responsibility, self- reliance, and initiative with the entitlement mentality. They are working hard to transform the Constitution into a document that can be continually revised to accommodate the latest socio-cultural trends. They have made substantial progress in replacing freedom of religion with freedom from religion. Leftists prefer anarchy to law and order as can be seen in their nationwide effort to defund police departments, adopt identity politics and tribalism to replace E Pluribus Unum, and institute moral relativism to replace Biblical morality.
The Socialist Revolution
The Biden Administration seeks to divorce military service from defense of the Constitution by replacing allegiance to the Constitution with Critical Race Theory. This prepares the military for their role in support of an overthrow of the government and the Constitutional order. By forcing the military to undergo liberal socialist indoctrination they sever the linkage between US military service and support for the Constitution. That action, which violates the Constitution, also violates the oath of office.
The oath taken by men and women who join any branch of the United States military begins with these words: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.” This oath, taken at the official swearing-in ceremony, describes the purpose of the U.S. military to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies.
It is not the purpose of the military to help advance the anti-American, anti-Constitution agenda of leftist ideologues. But the military is being forced by WOKE leaders in the White House, Congress, Department of Defense, and Pentagon, to do just that: advance a leftist agenda that seekstoteardowntheConstitution,notprotectit. Officersandenlisted troops are being required to sit through leftist indoctrination sessions that portray America as an inherently racist nation, white troops as genetically bigoted, and minority troops as hopeless, lifelong victims.
The purveyors of Critical Race Theory intend to demolish the United States of America as the founders established our Republic. By mandating the instruction of Critical Race Theory to every citizen serving in the military, they establish Critical Race Theory as the fundamental principles upon which Socialists demand soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, midshipmen, and cadets serve.
The military indoctrination in Critical Race Theory is considered necessary to prevent internal opposition to an attempted coup from within the ranks of the military (white extremism). Critical Race Theory brands the founders as evil, the Constitution as illegitimate, and the Republic as systemically racist. It abolishes the declaration of Independence that declares all men are created equal. It brands the population as racist, privileged, and unfit to enjoy the rights of
citizenship. It is a call to overthrow the government we served to preserve freedom and government by, for and of the people.
It is for times like these that God made Patriots. This is no time for summer soldiers and sunshine patriots. Those who have stood in harm’s way are needed now to stand by our oath. It is time to speak truth to power. We either serve Duty, Honor, Country, or we challenge the demands of a secular revolution to fundamentally alter America transforming the Republic into a socialist police state.
The Association of Graduates (AOG) represents us, the Long Gray Line. The AOG is in a position to represent the graduates of the Academy. Let them so conduct themselves to clearly demonstrate their allegiance to Duty, Honor, Country. For Duty, Honor, Country we serve; and in God we trust. Let it be said that the AOG has done an admirable job in raising funds to support many projects and much needed facilities laid out by each Superintendent. We applaud these efforts.
This declaration is dispatched to the Superintendent of the Academy as well as the President and Directors of the AOG with the admonition that the Academy is conducting business in a manner that ignores time- honored principles of the Academy, Constitutional Law, and our sworn oath of office.

Objectivism: A Soldier’s Philosophy, The Atlas Society | Ayn Rand ...
Jun 18, 2019 · However, Ayn Rand’s novel awakened my interest in Objectivism; it was the impetus I needed – a fascinating novel to introduce me to a rational philosophy. ... Who Needs It, a lecture delivered to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Ayn Rand asked: Who do men fear most? The brilliant loner, the beginner, the young man of potential ...
The US Military is a collection agency for the banks and corporations. It does not protect America or obey it's Oath to the Constitution. 30 million dead civilians at their bloody, gory hands since the end of WW2 in illegal,unconstitutional wars!
Very much on point. However, the Department of Defense has allowed itself to be corrupted by the Executive Branch by claiming the President, as Commander in Chief, must always be obeyed. This is not true in the case of illegal orders. Politicians are not honorable people by and large and the United States Military should hold itself to a higher standard or resign.
"The United States Military 'LEADERSHIP' should hold itself to a higher standard or resign". I think the goal is to discourage anybody from joining the military in any branch. This is part of the plan to bring down our country.
Dam the torpedos, I regret that I only have one life to give to my country, full speed ahead
its good to see the gray line pushing back...we are in big trouble i dunno how the fuckers got in..
If only there were criminal penalties for those who violate their Oath.....Most of Congress would be in prison.
I believe there are criminal penalties for this who violate their oath. They’re just not being enforced.
America is being attacked on so many fronts its staggering. We tetter on the edge of collapse as a Republic and unity as patriots is critical. Support our constitution and the institutions that obey our founding principles or we will forever lose them. The enemy is no longer "at the gate", its inside the gate. The crossroads are here and time to choose the road we follow. Pray for the nation to have the courage for the sacrifice needed ahead of us. Do not fear, God is with us .
psalm 23:4 Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me, thy rod and staff they comfort me.
Wear your armor of God proudly.
Hand salute to my brothers and sisters in arms.
Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendall Holmes, Jr. said, "The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are headed."
Can any American with a modicum of common sense not understand that in this liberal-dominated society we are headed in the wrong direction? With all of the institutions and principles that made this country great under attack by enemies of the permanent things, including our military academies, how can we survive as a nation without a powerful effort on behalf of those institutions and principles by the so-called "silent majority?" As concerned, freedom-loving Americans, patriots can no longer be silent in the face of the concerted efforts of the corrupt and dishonest "mainstream" media, the pseudo-sophisticated entertainment industry, and the dregs of academia to "fundamentally change America" as articulated by Barack Obama, our most subversive president. It's time for those of us who understand what a privilege it is to live in the United States of America to stand up and growl. Like our exceptional Founding Fathers, we must pledge "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor" to the preservation of all we hold dear.
CRT is encroaching in every facet of life, from the military and West Point to schools to professional vocations. The authors rightfully submit a call to action. All who love democracy and the constitution must push back against CRT in every corner it lurks. Some say the social civil war has begun; I think they may be right. The left will (and is) pushing back hard to intimidate us into submission. Be strong!
Did anyone notice the option to share isn't FB but VK? VK is Russian FB...Something doesn't seem right here...
Because Facebook de-platformed us long time ago, along with Twitter, Linkedin, Google, Mailchimp, Stripe, Paypal, Patreon and others. Do some research before you talk, you look stupid.
Facebook is communist China. You should leave the platform, unless you love forced organ harvesting, genocide, and stolen elections.
What an idiotic, ignorant comment.
