Recently, a slew of retired former military leaders tied to the Deep State revealed themselves as part of a coup effort to remove the President from office.
This had all hell breaking loose in Washington.
Now the U.S. military is about to make one big change that will make President Trump see red.
The left seized on the death of George Floyd to push for an all-out assault to fundamentally transform American society.
Part of that involved changing the very nature of the military.
After former Secretary of Defense James Mattis blasted President Trump in The Atlantic, retired Admiral William McRaven, retired Marine General John Allen and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey all linked arms with the left to smear the President over the response to the riots.
Americans suddenly realized that the upper ranks of the military operated like the upper ranks of Hollywood or academia in that it was staffed with liberal officials.
If that wasn’t apparent, it became clear when retired General David Petraeus authored an op-ed – in The Atlantic, of course – where Petraeus demanded the military rename iconic bases like Fort Bragg or Fort Benning because they were named after Confederate generals.
“It gives me considerable pause, for example, to note that my alma mater, West Point, honors Robert E. Lee with a gate, a road, an entire housing area, and a barracks, the last of which was built during the 1960s. A portrait of Lee with an enslaved person adorns a wall of the cadet library, the counterpoint to a portrait of Grant, his Civil War nemesis, on a nearby wall,” Petraeus began.
Petraeus parroted the left-wing talking point that the Confederacy only existed as a symbol of hate.
“We do not live in a country to which Braxton Bragg, Henry L. Benning, or Robert E. Lee can serve as an inspiration. Acknowledging this fact is imperative. Should it fail to do so, the Army, which prides itself on leading the way in perilous times, will be left to fight a rearguard action against a more inclusive American future, one that fulfills the nation’s founding promise,” Petraeus added.
Millions of Americans understand that for better or worse, the Confederacy was part of America’s history.
To many individuals, Confederate monuments and military bases named after Southern generals are a source of heritage.
Donald Trump spoke for these Americans back in 2017 when the President condemned the left for wanting to tear down Civil War monuments to try and erase history.
The President expressed his hope that Americans could learn from their history instead of trying to forget it.
“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You can’t change history, but you can learn from it,” the President stated.
“Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish! Also the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!” President Trump concluded.
There is a clear disconnect between the upper echelons of the U.S. military and the rank and file troops that lean conservative and support President Trump.
The left decided that George Floyd’s death was the moment to go for broke and that it was time for left-wing military officers to reveal themselves for the partisan actors that they are.
