Will the U.S. Military Resist Bidenization?

 

Most Americans have always admired and respected our military. Hundreds of thousands have sacrificed life and limb throughout our history to keep our republic free and independent. Many have been sent to fight and die in impossible missions, sometimes without public support as in Vietnam or without the means of achieving a quick and decisive victory. Too often, America’s wars have been micromanaged by the Oval Office with Presidents like LBJ picking bombing targets instead of the generals and the forces on the ground. Many of us are brought to tears by the sight of our finest and bravest men and women living without arms or legs or horribly disfigured faces.

Surveys show that America’s armed forces always remain in high esteem among the vast majority of Americans who have come to distrust virtually every institution in our society from Congress to Big Tech to the left-wing propaganda media. Americans trust the troops where they don’t trust Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, or Mitch McConnell.

Yet, this last bastion of Americanism and patriotism is also being targeted by the mobs of the Radical Left who run the so-called Joe Biden Administration. This new regime in Washington, D.C. seems determined to destroy virtually every institution in our society that embodies traditional values and Constitutional principles. They are leaving no stone unturned in their revolutionary program of national transformation to a one-party totalitarian socialist state.

And, our great military is in their crosshairs.

Recognizing that the Army, Navy, Marines, and Airforce represent the cherished principles of “Duty, Honor, Country,” the new woke Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and his gang of politically-correct culture-distorters at the Pentagon want to engage in a “search and destroy” mission aimed at rooting out all conservatives, Second Amendment supporters, and Trump backers from the corps. 

This is unprecedented and unconscionable. It is the outright politicization of the military in its rawest form. Ordering a “stand-down” of the world’s finest military for sixty days in order to chase mythical “white nationalists” or “conspiracy theorists” amounts to an open invitation to America’s enemies to act aggressively abroad and it is an insult to every man or woman who currently wears or has worn the uniform of this country. Additionally, it is a ruthless and unprovoked attack on the First Amendment rights of soldiers, sailors, and airmen who don’t surrender their right to free speech and free assembly just because they enlist.

Of course, the Biden regime is using the events at the Capitol on January 6 as the excuse to launch this latest Stalinist-like purge. Yet, all the evidence indicates that the attack at the Capitol was largely pre-planned and that groups like Antifa and BLM had a large hand in the chaos. It was certainly not the U.S. military that spearheaded this attack, which was neither an “insurrection” nor a “coup” as those terms are generally understood. Why should the U.S. military be purged of patriots simply because some malcontents and troublemakers decided to make a scene in Nancy Pelosi’s office that day? Increasingly, the breach at the Capitol looks like a modern-day version of the Reichstag Fire in which the German Nazis blamed their political opponents – the Communists and Socialists – for an act they themselves likely precipitated. We are, after all, living in the day of the “false flag.” We are also living in the day of military occupation of Washington, D.C., an occupation that could on until the Fall. And, for what?  To protect the nation’s capital from the nation’s people? To imitate a Third World dictatorship? The misuse of the National Guard on the streets of D.C. is itself an early warning sign of how the Bidenization of the military will be carried out.

Between forcing crazy “gender equity” schemes on the military plus attempting to deny the applicability of the Bill of Rights to the rank-and-file, the Biden regime is embarking on a mass demoralization campaign which will undermine and destroy the spirit of our armed forces and make them less likely and less able to perform their duties responsibly. This is a danger to all Americans who look to our military to protect them from foreign, and yes, domestic threats as well. Is it possible that the Biden regime is so insecure in its grip on power, so insecure in the validity of its election that it now sees American patriots at Fort Dix and Fort Leonard Wood as potential enemies? 

There is little doubt that President Trump had and still has enormous support among the rank-and-file military, but not so much among the top leadership at the Pentagon who are in bed with the defense contractors who salivate at the prospect of more profit-making endless wars. Should the treasonous activities of the Biden regime toward Communist China become intolerable or irrefutable evidence be unearthed about the rigged November 2020 election, would it not be convenient for Biden to have removed every Trump supporter from active service? Did these soldiers, sailors, and airmen not take an oath to the U.S. Constitution? What do they do and how do they respond if an illegitimate government starts surrendering their country piece by piece to a foreign enemy? Do they sit back and accept it or do they take action?

It is time the men and women of the U.S. armed forces fought back. An unjust law is no law at all. An unjust order is no order at all. No presidential “administration” of either party has a right to corrupt the nation’s military and transform it into some kind of “Revolutionary Guard” loyal to that government’s unconstitutional and dangerous political agenda and empowered to crush its political opposition. For that is exactly what the Left wants, to destroy the final bastions of America’s foundational institutions and turn them into weapons against our own people. Let’s make sure they don’t get away with it.
