Should known White Nationalists be allowed in the armed forces?
Leaked chat logs have connected seven current members of the U.S. armed forces to a white nationalist group, according to an investigation. Two Marines, two Army ROTC cadets, an Army physician, a member of the Texas National Guard and one member of the Air Force all belong to an organization called Identity Evropa, listed as an extremist group.

I'm here to tell you that white nationalism is very much alive and well within the DOD. It is unfortunate. There's nothing anyone can do about it.Source(s): My 22 years of experience in the army.

The Dod puts out a list every year of groups that members of the military are prohibited from being active members in. The key word being "active" which means they take part in and participate in a groups actions and/or hold some kind of appointed or elected office. So being a member in itself is generally not enough for the Dod to take any action.
As for they being prohibited from being in the armed forces then you need to start talking about limiting a lot of other individuals also that belong to various groups and they not being allowed to serve in the military. That is why Dod does not prohibit membership in itself to any of them but instead draws the line if an individual is or has been an active member.

It's already prohibited under DoD regulations.

Most people joining the military are basically just fresh-faced kids who know nothing more than what they were raised with. Denying them the opportunity to serve wouldn't be right, as being grouped with people outside of their comfort might give them a more woke vision of the world.

Being a member of, and showing support for, White Nationalist groups, terrorist groups, and other known hate groups is prohibited under DoD regulations.
