What a despicable twat.
After the 2020 election, Army General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, compared President Donald Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and Trump’s supporters in the MAGA movement to Nazi brownshirts. This only further underscores conservative fears about President Joe Biden’s efforts to root out “extremism” in the military.
“Milley told his staff that he believed Trump was stoking unrest, possibly in hopes of an excuse to invoke the Insurrection Act and call out the military,” Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker wrote in their forthcoming book I Alone Can Fix It, CNN reported.
According to the book, Milley feared Trump would launch a coup and he prepared a plan to get the Army to resign en masse rather than prevent the peaceful transition of power.
“They may try, but they’re not going to f**king succeed,” Milley reportedly told his deputies. “You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the guys with the guns.”
Milley reportedly viewed Trump as “the classic authoritarian leader with nothing to lose.” He drew parallels between Hitler’s rhetoric and Trump’s worries about the 2020 election.
“This is a Reichstag moment,” Milley told aides, referring to the 1933 episode when the German parliament caught fire. Historians disagree on the ultimate cause of the fire (many claim the Nazis themselves set it), but Hitler blamed the communists and used the fire as an excuse to suspend the civil liberties of Germans.
Milley said Trump was following “the gospel of the Führer.”
In the lead-up to a pro-Trump “Million MAGA March” protest in November, Milley compared the protesters to the Nazi “brownshirts,” the militia that fueled Hitler’s rise to power. The Joint Chiefs chairman told staff that he feared the protest “could be the modern American equivalent of ‘brownshirts in the streets.’”
The Joint Chiefs chairman has refused to publicly address issues raised in the book, a defense official told CNN. The official added that the general was not calling Trump a Nazi but he did insist that he had no choice but to respond to what he considered dangerous rhetoric from Trump and his supporters.
……..While Trump may have gone too far in claiming that he won the election, he did not encourage a violent insurrection, much less a coup. Even on January 6, Trump told his supporters to remain peaceful for the protest at the Capitol. The president ultimately condemned the Capitol riot and he did leave the White House peacefully, allowing for the transition of power.
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff should think rationally about the commander in chief, rather than indulging in partisan fear-mongering about him. Milley’s absurd Hitler comparisons suggest that the general started to imbibe the Left’s “Trump Derangement Syndrome.” The general’s decision to defend Marxist critical race theory and to use CRT talking points to trash the Constitution’s Three-Fifths Compromise also suggests a creeping leftist perspective.
He should be charged under Article 88 of the UCMJ.
Of course, the asswipe has no qualms about Antifa, BLM, and the violence encouraged by the Dems. As a matter of fact, when a Trump adviser mentioned that the anarchists and black radials were destroying cities, Milley went ballistic.
The real fascists are douchebags like Milley who are forcing CRT on the military and eviscerating them to the point where concocted pronouns are more important than combat readiness. I am a Trump supporter and I served as a US Soldier for a total of 30 years with two tours in Iraq. I swore to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. His behavior places him in the domestic enemy category. When you attack citizens who are fed up with the Swamp status quo and call them “Nazis” , that speaks volumes about your character. When you smear Americans who take a stand against Marxist indoctrination, and lead a chorus of unhinged leftwing radicals screaming “white supremacy” and “racism”, you’ve shown that you are unfit for leadership.
The US military is infested with leftist ideologues. For eight years, Obama purged experienced, dedicated patriotic senior leadership from the ranks and replaced them with apparatchik tools like Milley. Obama’s regime broke the law, trashed the Constitution, and weaponized government agencies against American citizens. None of that bothered Milley.
The rancid social engineering and ‘woke’ policies are turning the military into a second rate superpower.
The hierarchy is demanding that everyone goosestep to the Marxist doctrine or be punished. They have embraced an ideology that is diametrically opposed to the Constitution and the oath they took.
