America’s Top General Surrenders to His Woke Confessors

At the end of presidential administrations, it is not uncommon for former officials to comment on and in some cases criticize the actions of outgoing presidents to journalists, authors, and other opportunists looking to cash in on previously unknown information. Typically, however, members of the U.S. military refrain from open rebukes of former Commanders-in-Chief. But since President Trump left office – and in some cases even before – Army General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has broken with that precedent. As Milley has undergone a transformation from loyal advisor to full-throated purveyor of progressive politics, several of his comments have left observers concerned that a mysterious figure or figures may have undue influence over the country’s top general.

In recent weeks, Milley has emerged as a major subject in the latest wave of “tell-all” books purporting to give the inside scoop on the final days of the Trump administration. According to one of these books, the General was apparently actively preparing for the possibility that Trump would refuse to leave office and attempt a coup d’état if he lost the election. While Milley admits that he had no proof of any kind that even remotely suggested the former President was planning such a move, the fact that he was planning for such a contingency has raised concerns.

Ironically, Milley first drew controversy for his support of President Trump rather than his criticism of him. On June 1, 2020, Milley stood by the President’s side as Trump visited nearby St. John’s Church, which had recently been torched by vandals. The square had recently been cleared by law enforcement—an action that the Department of Interior Inspector General recently reported had been planned long before the President’s impromptu walk, was fully justified by the circumstances, and did not involve tear gas, despite the relentless false narrative to the contrary.

The most senior member of the American military, standing by the side of his direct superior whom he is sworn to protect, after rioters vandalized and set multiple fires in the nation’s capital, would normally be an understandable action. However, as was the case any time someone stood by President Trump, the media attacked the General. They accused him, as well as Trump, of turning the military loose on the American people – despite the fact that later investigations discredited this fake storyline.

But, rather than affirm that he had acted appropriately, the General almost immediately changed his tune and sought to appease the media and the left. He distanced himself from the event, claiming it caught him by surprise, even saying that he had considered resigning over the incident. Less than two weeks after the controversy began, General Milley apologized for, quite literally, standing by the President’s side, stating

“I should not have been there. My presence in that moment and in that environment created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics…As a commissioned uniformed officer, it was a mistake that I’ve learned from, and I sincerely hope we all can learn from it.”

However, later statements revealed that these acts of contrition may not have arisen from Milley’s own allegedly beleaguered conscience. A spokesperson for Milley explicitly noted that Milley met with “several of his longstanding mentors to discuss his situation.” Who they were and what specifically they discussed, he refused to say.

Despite the fact that Americans have no idea who these shadowy “mentor” figures were, these conversations appear to have had a profound effect on Milley’s priorities as Chairman. Specifically, Milley thereafter seemed to develop a preoccupation with liberal social policies. For example, shortly following the visit to St. John’s Church, he gave the keynote speech to the National Defense University in which the majority of his comments were focused on issues of diversity and inclusion, saying “our military has a mixed record on equality.”

Now, Milley also appears to have bought into the left’s agenda on Critical Race Theory (CRT), including encouraging cadets to read CRT texts that, among other things, teach that America, the very country they are risking their lives to serve, is an inherently racist and evil nation. When asked by Congressional legislators about the spread of Critical Race Theory in the military, Milley replied:

“I want to understand white rage, and I’m white, and I want to understand it…So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? What caused that? I want to find that out.”

Milley’s newfound focus on understanding “white rage” and promoting concepts like “equity” rather than strengthening the country’s defense posture has undoubtedly won him favor with the new administration. In President Biden’s first speech to Department of Defense Personnel, outlining his priorities for our military, he stated:

“There is no aspect of our agenda of the 21st century leadership where the women and men of the Defense Department do not have a role — whether it’s helping curb the pandemic here at home and around the world; or addressing the real threats of climate change that already is costing us billions in impacts on our bases, on our national security; or being part of an ongoing fight for racial justice.”

While Biden also noted that he was prioritizing an end to ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as focusing on curbing the threat China poses to the free world, it’s unclear how forcing members of the military to digest radical ideologies like CRT would help achieve those goals. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has made similar comments to Biden’s. While many point to this focus on race as a sign that our military is being overtaken by woke culture, it’s possible the answer is far simpler.

President Biden has made it clear that all American military personnel will be out of Afghanistan by September 11. As the withdraw continues, a majority of experts agree that the collapse of the Afghan government is all but certain. Neither Biden, nor Austin, nor Milley have any answer as to what this means for the future of our military or the damage it will do to America’s international reputation. It’s possible that this aggressive focus on race may simply be a deflection. A smokescreen by which our military may hide the extent of yet another costly strategic blunder. As for who or what General Milley’s shadow mentors think of this embarrassing international humiliation, it remains unclear.

For now, Milley seems insistent that the future of our nation’s military revolves around diversity and equity as opposed to defending the country and protecting our allies. While Americans may never know who Milley’s woke confessors are, it is evident that they have an unsettling amount of influence over the priorities of a man entrusted to keep our country safe, and who has done more to politicize the military than anyone in living memory.

I served in the military and retired after 28+ years, milley has revealed very openly that he has become politically driven and is cowtowing to the powers that be…our military and our nation will suffer for this spineless leader!

Anyone still thinking that the senior leadership within our military hasn’t been successfully taken over by the left is either delusional or a fool. It started under Bill Clinton in the 1990s, with the firing of any officer that dared question his policies and promotion of political yes men up through the ranks. The process was completely finished by the time Obama left office. What we have today are generals and admirals that are essentially glorified yes men committed to the Democrat agenda. Sorry, but that is the sad reality.

As to Milley’s mentors, I can care less… Both Milley & Austin have flip flopped their notions on CRT in either case… They are the perfect ” yes ” men the captured WH administration need in place at the Pentagon…Another general that comes to mind with respect to dissing his president was General Mattis, I nor a lot of other people saw that one coming!
Until the ( 2 ) faux generals are removed from their faux positions, the correct kind of military leadership will missing from our armed forces, in those (2) positions at the Pentagon… I firmly believe we do in fact have the upper command structure in place, i.e. General Mike Flynn & other key commanders in our proud US Military whom are Constitutionally bound to ” Serve & to Protect ” America & every American citizen within it..
In conclusion: Watch the audits, watch the water & may God bless America…

General Milley does not need to understand white rage! There is no such thing! There is a Marxist revolution taking hold and “blacks vs whites” is what is being used to divide the country. A house divided cannot stand. Everywhere it has been tried, there is something used to divide the populous. Typically, it is the haves vs the have nots. All result in much death and eventually communism. Biden and his administration are ushering in communism on all front. They have the childen thanks to the indoctrination at schools. They have the media to push their message. And they have big tech to silence the oposition and bolster a false narrative. Unfortunately, most people cannot see the big picture. Many no something is going on but do not care to take the time to understand it. Many others are just oblivious, happy to get their pay from the government, not realizing or not caring they are dependent. But then there are those who do understand. They are taking a stand and speaking truth to power. They are speaking out again the Tyranny of the left and if pushed to far, …

General Milley is a complete embarrassment to this nation and should immediately be removed from the Joint Chiefs of Staff! He has allowed himself to be completely indoctrinated by the known Marxist and racist lies of BLM and Antifa! If he is that gullable, he has no business in any position at the Pentagon!

When the generals start openly picking sides we move closer to civil war! See also: Pre Civil War circa 1860 and cadets leaving West Point and officers choosing sides.

Pulling out of Afganistan is a hugh mistake just as it was in failing to get an agreement from Iraq to maintain a standing presence. With Afganistan on one side of Iran and Iraq on the other, we had the ability to set up bases, and/or missles, that could easily reach Iran, leaving them, in effect, surrounded. But we blew the opportunity and continue to make the same mistake.

This clown should have spent a little more time reading and studying the Constitution rather than reading his favorite authors, Mao and Marx. Seems like his next, immediate duty station should be as a resident of Leavenworth.

Does anyone, beside me, wonder what generals Eisenhower, Patton, Schwarzkopf and many other unsung military heroes would think of the bozos running the army and defense department today? The military is supposed to defend America, not collude with any specific political party.

The Left must destroy our military, it’s part of what must happen for their rise to power. Nothing new here. They’ll reshape the military so that they will support the dictatorship and not the constitution.

There is a good chance that financial pressure was put on him. Can you imagine working all your life and expecting a certain amount and then find out if you didn’t go with the flow you may not get any of what you have rightfully earned?

If Milley wants to go into politics then he must resign immediately and take off the uniform that he is disgracing. He and some other military leaders have forgotten their solemn oath to protect and defend this country, rather than pandering to the left liberal loonies and trying to make the US military an ineffective politically correct social experiment.

What a shame, a West Point graduate who has made his adult life the goal of defending this country. Not all the blame should be dumped on Milley. The head of the Navy is in lockstep with the Army. Both these men need to resign.

Who knows what Milley is thinking about other than protecting the country militarily? His entire focus should be on military strategy, budgeting increases in military spending to counter enemies of the United States, and hiring the best and brightest people to accomplish the over-reaching goals of protecting our country and our allies….PERIOD! All the rest of the CRT training is nothing but a leftist curve ball to screw up the military. He is taking his lead from the O’Biden progressive operatives behind the curtain, and that will only weaken our country’s preparedness. The threats from China, Russia and North Korea are real….the CRT garbage is a mirage. He should know that, and he has been gaslighted by the progressive left. His reasoning is flawed if he thinks he should purse this level of “understanding”. He looks weak in the eyes of our enemies and in the eyes of most Americans.

I would more liken Milley to general George B. McClellan. An avid critic of president Lincoln, he left the military to run against him in his second term campaign, Milley seems to be a weathervane as opposed to a trustworthy general.

The military has one purpose and that is to put the best qualified in the position so that we are the strongest force in the world. This new bull of quotas and political favoritism and bending over to the socialist liberals and their “woke” crap can not be allowed or tolerated. The defense of our country and the defending of the CONSTITUTION are the prime reasons for strong MILITARY LEADERS not ones who give in to the corrupt movements of the weak crybabies.

“Milley” ‘Cyrus’ SHOULD step down. But he likes getting that $15,000 + a mo. to sit on his fat ass and be a turn coat. If I could, I’d like to slap his face in. He is scum of the lowest order.

This is not very complicated.
This so-balled “General” Milley took an oath on the Constitution to protect and defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic.
We are in the muddle of a revolutionary war by Marxists (Democrat Party) against our way of life (Conservatives).
Marxism can not be implemented while our Constitution is the primary law of the land.
So, where does that leave the so-called General, he took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, now he has side with the very forces that by ideological definition must DESTROY the Constitution in order to win and to survive.
Since this IS a war, this “General” has committed TREASON of the first order and, God willing, must be tried and convicted of this crime.
Look up the Uniform Code of Military Justice for the appropriate penalties, you will be very surprised of what awaits this traitor.
As I said, is not very complicated, all we have to do is go vote in person and in mass on 2022 and 2024 for Conservative* candidates.

*Note that I did not say Republicans, but Conservatives, since these are NOT interchangeable. A candidate can be a Republican and not a true Conservative. Don’t be fooled again.

What the Biden regime has done or tried to do to the military absolutely sickens me! While Russia and China are strengthening their respective militaries, the Pentagon is worried about whether transgender members of the military are being treated nicely enough, whether males can wear nail polish or earrings, etc., etc., etc. General Washington and those of the Greatest Generation would be disgusted beyond words with this lot. They are a dangerous joke!

What do you call a person that weakens a group of people by demoralizing them so they are no longer capable to stand as ONE in battle to save the country they serve.? Results: there will be less men and women enlisting. Communist & Socialists are thrilled . I can hear their shouts of joy and laughter { and I am legally deaf } of American fools as our country as we knew it slips away just as they said, ” with out firing a shot we{Russians} will take their country “.

I am a former military officer. When I was commissioned, I took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. My oath has no expiration date. I expect General Milley took that same oath when he was commissioned. Unfortunately, he has either knowingly or unwittingly violated that oath since he is now actively supporting our domestic enemies rather than supporting the Constitution against them. Of course, we are referring to all the broad spectrum of Libtards infesting our nation and who are spewing their anti-American rhetoric and dystopian ideas upon us. This contagion includes socialists, communists, all the woke folks, anarchists, BLM, Antifa, the majority of the lamestream media, and all the remaining Demsheviks inclusively (especially the ones in Congress), to name but a few. That someone in his position fails to realize this failure is the real tragedy. It does not bode well for our military, or for America.

Lenin’s “useful idiots” can come from all walks of life, all stations in life.
This idiot is more concerned with preserving his own worthless career than doing what he swore an oath to do. This same thing has been going on for years in government as well as corporate “management”. It is just getting more blatant as the marxists get closer to their goal of total dominance.
