Her animated counterpart watches her two mothers get married after one recovers from a serious car accident that left her paralyzed. 

The young corporal also attends a gay rights parade and says she’s been defending freedom since a young age with her participation in the event. 

The ad has received mix reviews, including one Twitter user who called it ‘super-woke-woke’ 

‘Wow. First it was the woke CIA ad, now it is a super-woke woke animated army recruitment ad featuring a lesbian wedding, an LGBT rights parade and women ‘shattering stereotypes’ by joining the world’s largest killing machine.’ one person tweeted.

Another person tweeted: ‘The Army has joined the CIA in being super woke, putting out an recruitment add featuring a lesbian wedding and an LGBT rights parade. I don’t care about how people want to live their private lives, but I only want people who will protect and defend our country 100% of the time.’

‘Army releases recruitment advertisement featuring lesbian wedding – Our new “woke” military would be a joke if it didn’t compromise our readiness and national security,’ someone else tweeted. 

Another user agreed, tweeting: ‘Warriors fight and win wars. Going woke is going to get Soldiers killed. You should choose another profession…The Army posts their own super woke recruitment ad that features a lesbian wedding.’

Earlier this month a CIA recruitment video also labeled ‘woke’ by critics also made headlines after it was widely panned. 

The ad featured an unnamed CIA officer, 36, who tells viewers she is ‘unapologetically me’, adding that she used to suffer from ‘imposter syndrome’ but now refuses to ‘internalize misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be.’

But the clip sparked fierce reaction online with users labelling it ‘woke’. Another said: ‘The world is laughing at us.’

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: ‘China and Russia will love this.’

The clip was shared to Twitter on April 28 in a post which read: ‘I am unapologetically me. I want you to be unapologetically you, whoever you are’

Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright, tweeted: ‘The CIA used to be about mission to country. (I speak from experience).

‘Now it’s now about demanding — and getting — accommodation to fix an emotional wound or advance a personal agenda. America is less safe with this new CIA, and dangerously more political.’

Another Twitter user compared it to a Saturday Night Live skit.

The CIA pushed back against criticism over the recruitment video, telling Fox News in a statement that the controversial ad has proven to be effective at helping attract candidates to the agency.

‘2020 was a standout recruitment year for CIA despite the pandemic. Our 2021 incoming class is the third-largest in a decade,’ the agency told Fox News.

Another Twitter user compared it to a Saturday Night Live skit. 

Glenn Greenwald, part of a team that won a Pulitzer for reports about government surveillance programs based on leaks by Edward Snowden, tweeted: ‘Lots of people who pay no attention to the CIA and the security state seem to think this CIA video is the first time they’ve promoted, endorsed and embraced woke ideology. 

‘They’ve been doing it for years. I wrote about back in 2015.’ 

The clip was shared to Twitter on April 28 in a post which read: ‘I am unapologetically me. I want you to be unapologetically you, whoever you are. 

‘Whether you work at #CIA, or anywhere else in the world.  Command your space. Mija, you are worth it.’    

The agent tells viewers: ‘I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box-checking exercise. I am a walking declaration, a woman whose inflection does not rise at the end of her sentences, suggesting that a question has been asked.’ 

The clip does not detail the qualifications needed to work at the CIA or what the role entails. 

She adds: ‘I am a woman of color. I am a mom. I am a cisgender Millennial who has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.’

In the TV show Homeland agent Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes, attempts to keep her bipolar disorder hidden from the CIA over fears of losing her security clearance.    

One Twitter user commented: ‘I hope the CIA actually is hiring fail brain millennials with debilitating anxiety like in the ad. that would be hilarious. 

‘Sam Fisher getting captured and tortured because the analyst working on his mission is hyperventilating due to being quote tweeted.’

Matt Taibbi added: ‘The really telling thing about this video os that it speaks to the CIA’s assessment of who would be interested in working for them. Clearly, they think they have appeal to woke millenials – and they’re probably right.’ 

Commentator Liz Wheeler said: ‘Watch this insane CIA recruitment video & tell me the CIA isn’t a woke swamp creature… capable & willing to weaponize their power to target their political opponents: conservatives.’  

The clip begins with the agent – shot in slow motion – walking towards the camera talking about being a 17-year-old student. 

She says: ‘I can change a diaper in one hand and console a crying toddler with the other.

‘I earned my way in and I earned my way up the ranks.

‘I am tired of feeling like I am supposed to apologize for the space I occupy.’ 

Journalist Rania Khaled said: ‘I remember warning about this danger like 7 years ago and getting smeared for it by tumblr types.’ 

Michael Treacy added: ‘I don’t know if the CIA invented/funded/disseminated Woke Ideology but let’s just say it would make perfect sense.’

Assistant professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Asheesh Kapur Siddique said: ‘Looking forward to @cia’s next video, which will explain how ‘enhanced interrogation’ is actually super woke.’
