San Antonio, Texas – Ben Mostyn, the leading candidate for the Texas House of Representatives District 117, has taken a stand against the Biden Administration’s recent endorsement of race-based military promotions. Mostyn strongly opposes the notion of prioritizing diversity, equity, inclusion, and race over merit when it comes to selecting individuals for promotion within the United States Armed Forces. He asserts that such a policy undermines the fundamental principles of a strong and effective military.

Mostyn, a decorated Army Veteran and a staunch supporter of the military’s role in defending our nation, has expressed deep concerns regarding the potential ramifications of the Biden Administration’s approach. He firmly believes that promoting a merit-based system is essential to maintain the competitive edge and operational effectiveness of the United States military.

“Our military has thrived as the world’s preeminent fighting force because we have consistently recruited, trained, and promoted the most qualified men and women for the job,” Mostyn asserted. “To effectively address the complex challenges posed by global threats, including terrorism and rising aggression from adversaries like China, we must continue to prioritize meritocracy within our military ranks.”

Drawing upon the illustrious history of the United States Armed Forces, Mostyn underlined the pivotal role played by a merit-based promotion system. He stressed that this system has time and again demonstrated its ability to empower exceptional individuals and facilitate collective success in confronting formidable enemies of freedom and democracy.

“The race-based favoritism and segregation promoted by the Biden Administration will erode time-tested traditions and merit-based principles that have propelled our military to greatness, while simultaneously elevating one’s position in life based on their character, skills, and the merits of their accomplishments regardless of their origins or the color of their skin,” Mostyn warned. “Placing feelings ahead of accomplishments undermines the spirit of achievement and compromises the security of our nation.”

Mostyn’s critique reflects his unwavering commitment to a national security agenda that transcends partisan politics. Speaking out against the Biden Administration’s stance on military promotions, he has raised crucial questions about the long-term consequences for the United States Armed Forces and its capacity to effectively counter emerging global threats and challenges.
