The Department of Defense’s Education Activity DEI chief Kelisa Wing has been removed from her position in military children’s schools after the GOP brought to light her racist anti-white social media posts.

In October, the Defense Department launched a 30-day review of Wing after her racist Twitter posts circulated around social media, sparking anger among the American people.

In a Thursday House Armed Services Committee hearing, a Biden-appointed Pentagon official, Gil Cisneros, was made to read and explain racist social media posts made by Wing.

One such post from Wing read,

“I’m so exhausted at these white folx in these PD sessions this lady actually had the CAUdacity to say that black people can be racist too…I had to stop the session and give Karen the BUSINESS…we are not the majority, we don’t have power.”

Cisneros, the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness of the United States, was questioned by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) about Wing’s tweet.

“Mr. Cisneros, can black people be racist too?” Gaetz asked.

“I’ve already stated, congressman, that I didn’t agree with [Wing’s] statements,” Cisneros replied, avoiding the question.

“You’re the leading official over DEI! A racist person who works for you puts out these tweets, and you won’t say whether you agree or disagree,” Gaetz said.

Gaetz continued to reiterate the original question to Cisneros, which he repeatedly refused to answer.

All the Florida Rep managed to get out of Cisneros was that his department does “not support racist tweets.”

It was also pointed out in the hearing that Wing has written children’s books that are rooted in a Left-wing agenda, titled ‘What is White Privilege?’, ‘What Does it Mean to Defund the Police?’, and ‘What is the Black Lives Matter Movement?’

Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) questioned Cisneros on these books during the hearing, informing him that they are in DoDEA’s K-12 schools throughout the US.

When asked if he knew these books were in schools across the country, Cisneros said, “I don’t know for a fact if they are.”

“You seem to not know a lot of what is happening in your department,” Stefanik replied.

Following this hearing, Stefanik announced that the DoDEA DEI Chief had been removed from her position and reassigned. Cisneros said that this reassignment was not a “disciplinary action,” but rather “as part of a headquarters restructuring.”

However, Stefanik thinks this move had more to do with the inappropriate anti-white comments made by Wing.

“I have a feeling that has to do with the fact that we [Republicans] have shined light on this,” Stefanik said.
