    A watchdog group on Monday filed a complaint against President Joe Biden's nominee for Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman over his previous comments on diversity.

    The American Accountability Foundation (AAF) filed a complaint against Air Force General C.Q. Brown over his promotion of "race based hiring" ahead of a Senate hearing on Tuesday to consider his nomination, referencing previous comments Brown made about hiring "for diversity" and referring to the military as a "white boys club."

    Brown "has made a number of statements about hiring on the basis of race as well as monitoring the private beliefs of employees or potential employees with the intention of censoring those beliefs. If implemented, the statements and views of General Brown on what should be official hiring policy of the U.S. Air Force present a significant likelihood of violating the civil and constitutional rights of military personnel, in addition to violating existing code of conduct for Air Force personnel," the complaint says.

    The complaint against Brown was sent to Kristen Clarke, the assistant attorney general for civil rights at the Department of Justice. Brown, who was chosen by Biden to replace current Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, will appear before the Senate Armed Forces Committee on Tuesday.

    The AAF previously drew attention to a list of comments Brown has made in interviews where he discussed his goal to diversify the military.

    "You can't let it just be happenstance that brings in the diversity whether it be race, gender, ethnic background, sexual orientation, socio-economic background. You really have to spend some time thinking about it because you may miss an opportunity looking at the slate of candidates and then asking some hard questions," Brown said. "As we're looking at some key positions, who are diverse candidates and are we making sure we are grooming them so they have the opportunity?"

    The complaint says that Brown's comments likely violate the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.

    "As the Supreme Court of the United States of America just made clear, racist 'diversity' policies at universities are unconstitutional and illegal. Yet Biden's nominee to be our nation's top military leader wants to implement those racist policies in the military," AAF President Tom Jones told The Daily Wire in a statement. "Gen. Brown's race-obsessed world view is an insult to our brave men and women of all colors. When a young private is sent into battle he needs to know the man commanding him was put there because he's the most capable warrior, not because of the color of his skin. Especially at a time of increased military competition with China, we cannot afford to fall behind by making racial 'diversity' a priory at the cost of military excellence."


    Brown could also face an uphill battle for confirmation as Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) has been placing a "hold" on general and flag officer promotions due to the Pentagon's policy of allowing female service members expense-paid travel and up to three weeks leave for elective abortions.
