A gag-worthy CIA recruitment video, featuring an “intersectional” and “cisgender” Latina mom, has been panned by critics — who say it is “woke propaganda” gone too far.
The promotional video, posted on Twitter Wednesday, features a 36-year-old officer who ticked off a series of left-wing buzzwords before boasting that she can “wax eloquent on complex legal issues” while staying true to her Latin roots.
“I am a woman of color, I am a mom, I am a cisgender millenial who’s been diagnosed with generalized anxeity disorder,” she says, while dramatic string music plays in the background. “I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box-checking exercise.”
“I did not sneak into the CIA,” the agent, who says she has suffered from “imposter syndrome,” goes on.
“My employment was not and is not of a fluke or a slip through the cracks. … I am educated, qualified and competent.”
The two-minute video was widely mocked on social media.
“China and Russia Love this,” snarked Donald Trump Jr.
“The CIA just released a recruitment video full of woke propaganda and America’s enemies are laughing their heads off,” conservative author and podcaster Dinesh D’Souza said.
Author J.D. Vance called the recruitment drive a “national embarrassment.”
“That our universities teach people to talk like this is a national embarrassment,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, another critic claimed he was repulsed.
“i literally almost threw up,” he wrote.
