We recently reported that the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, went into a social justice diatribe during a hearing in front of the House Armed Services Committee.
The shocking statements made by him, which included accusing those who were involved in the events of the Capitol of exhibiting “white rage” have caught the attention of many on the right.
GOP Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers, in a two part tweet, pushed back on Milley, demanding he resign and calling for an investigation.
“If our top general is telling our young impressionable troops to read communist books then the general pushing a communist agenda in our military & needs to resign NOW,” Rogers stated.
Rogers continued, “General George S Patton is rolling over in his grave right now.” Patton was a general who commanded the army in Europe during WWII.
It was also revealed this morning that Milley appears to have been responsible for why former President Donald Trump did not crack down on the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots that broke out last summer.
A new book claims that the top US general is described as having been the sole voice of opposition to demands for the military to intervene.
From Yahoo! News:
According to Mr Bender, Mr Trump told top law enforcement and military officials: “That’s how you’re supposed to handle these people… Crack their skulls!”
Mr Trump also reportedly told his team he wanted the military to “beat the f*** out” of protesters and “just shoot them”.
When Mr Milley and then-Attorney General William Barr would push back on the calls for violence, Mr Bender said Mr Trump would tone it down – but only slightly.
In one case, Mr Bender claimed Mr Milley told senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller to “shut the f*** up” as the adviser proclaimed that “cities were burning” as he equated the scenes unfolding on his television screen to those in third-countries and to war zones.
According to the WSJ reporter, Mr Milley, who had commanded troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, spun around in his seat and pointed a finger at Mr Miller, exclaiming: “Shut the f***, Stephen”.
