A reader has called our attention to one part of an opinion piece published by THE EPOCH TIMES, “The Left’s Loyalty Test, and the Coming Enforcement of It,” by James Bowman. Specifically this is an oh-so- carefully-phrased testimony by Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that happened to perfectly reflect the DNC talking points about the Capitol breach on January 6.

The testimony appears about halfway through the piece. Here’s the entire op-ed, from July 1. Yes, I know that was three weeks ago, but it remains as pertinent as it was that day. (Note: It’s a “premium” report, which means it’s through a subscription that is well worth signing up for.)

Bowman's piece starts with an account of how language has been changed over the past few decades to give convenient (for the left) new meanings to terms such as “lie” as well as new boundaries for “decent opinion” largely set by THE NEW YORK TIMES. The author gained a preliminary understanding of this discipline during the Clinton administration, but as he writes here, it wasn’t until he heard Gen. Milley testify at the budget hearing in June that “all the pieces of the puzzle came together” and he understood the far-reaching implications of cancel culture.

Recall that Gen. Milley was asked why he studied the works of Marx, Lenin and Mao and why he now supports the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) to our armed forces. His response was mystifying.

“I want to understand white rage,” he testified. “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? I want to maintain an open mind here, and I do want to analyze it. It’s important that we understand that, because our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and guardians, they come from the American people. So it’s important that the leaders now and in the future do understand it.”

If you’d like to read the entire transcript, here it is.

Gen. Milley was clearly trying to imply that the Capitol breach was caused by “white rage” and also by a desire to overturn the Constitution.

I want to know: Why is Gen. Milley, the figure who represents all branches of our military, parroting the exact –- the EXACT –- message of the Democratic National Committee, a message that happens to be fraudulent? Surely he isn’t that clueless.

Let’s start first with the idea that entering the Capitol was an attempt to subvert the U.S. Constitution. That’s baloney –- it was just the opposite. The people rallying that day were strong constitutionalists, deeply concerned that their beloved Constitution might have been subverted. They understandably did not trust the vote count in key counties. (As we have learned since and are still learning, they had good reason for that.) They suspected targeted cheating at worst, unconstitutional tinkering at best. But they were told that their arguments were “moot,” that no one, not even the Supreme Court, would hear their complaints, and that they couldn’t do anything about it so they’d just better just shut up.

And now they see that the new administration can’t wait to subvert the Constitution in other ways, such as federalizing elections to prevent states from guarding against fraud.

I've said from the start that what marchers did at the Capitol Building, even if it was urged on by outside forces as it appears to have been, was terribly ill-advised and made matters worse --- much worse. But that’s not to say that their motives weren’t commendable. They wanted to protect the Constitution, not overturn it.

So, where did Gen. Milley get the idea that Trump supporters wanted to subvert the Constitution? Is he really that clueless? Or is he doing the bidding of the left?

And is it possible for him to be even MORE clueless? Perhaps, on the issue of “white rage,” he is. This phony narrative, likewise, is straight out of the DNC playbook. Just because Trump supporters at the Capitol were mostly white does not mean, by any stretch, that race had anything to do with this. And Bowman agrees, when he says:

“Race, I daresay, never entered their heads in this connection, but it has been attributed to them as their motivation on the basis of the previous Democratic talking point, itself based on a bare-faced lie about what Donald Trump had said about the ‘very fine people’ in Charlottesville in 2017, that the former President was a ‘white supremacist.’” In other words, Gen. Milley is perpetuating a hoax.

Bowman points out that the left, “which is now in the saddle and rides both government and media,” is working to establish in our minds that opposition or even disagreement with them will be regarded by the state as a security threat. And we have it straight from the mouth of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

To quote Bowman, this is “as good as an admission that he [Gen. Milley] is also prepared to allow his troops, suitably purged of subversive elements, of course, to be used as enforcers of the one-party, totalitarian rule that the Democrats would like to see as our future.” Is Bowman going too far? I don’t think so.

Monday evening on FOX NEWS PRIMETIME, Brian Kilmeade had a good segment on the military’s strange preoccupation with the political views of its own soldiers. Reportedly, the Pentagon has been working with an “extremism analyst company” to dig through the online history of troops to find evidence of what they term “white supremacist” views. One phrase they search for is “the truth about Black Lives Matter.” As FOX NEWS reports, their search implies that questioning the motives of the BLM movement “is a disinformation narrative perpetuated by white supremacist groups to weaponize anti-BLM sentiment.” That is flat-out wrong; BLM deserves the same scrutiny as any other group.

Former Air Force Lt. Commander Matthew Lohmeier, who says he lost his post after questioning the rise of “diversity issues” in the military, was Kilmeade’s guest. He said very little surprises him any more when it comes to the Pentagon’s focus on “rooting out white extremism and white supremacy.” He questioned the value of using search terms to determine the views of those serving in uniform.

Lohmeier has a new book, IRRESISTIBLE REVOLUTION, and in researching it, he determined that BLM, going back to 2015, is “an exceptionally politicized project,” with goals such as dismantling the nuclear family and opposing Judeo-Christian values. What does any of this have to do with race?

He says the company the Pentagon hired to examine soldiers’ social media posts is British and “affiliated with former President Obama.” Politicized statements from soldiers on the left appear not to be undergoing scrutiny. But, of course, those soldiers aren’t...racists!

Lohmeier’s book looks like an excellent examination of neo-Marxism within our armed forces, by someone who’s had a taste of that. Gen. Milley should read it.

    Totally correct. Gen Milley is a disgrace. He sold out the country for a future high paying job in one of the defense companies and or future spot in a democrat administration . He violated his oath of enlistment. He disgraced his uniform.

    As a retired navy Lt Commander and Vietnam veteran, I’m appalled at the General’s comments. He does not deserve to be in his current position and should be forced to retire. I should not that the current Chief of Naval Operations appears to have the same mindset as the General. Living near a naval base, I am getting inputs that this mindset is working down thru the officer corps thanks to our colleges pushing this anti American tripe.

    The General Milley is nothing but a political hack, he is part of the ongoing and continuing push of this critical race theory, he was a politician in uniform from the begining with his speach about he took an oath to protect the Constitution was one of his biggest lies to date. If he half way desired to protect the Constitution then why is he letting a run on our southern border by outside countries go untouched and does nothing but sit on his political backside. He is a sorry excuse for an individual in uniform and deserves it to be stripped off of him, and his rank be pulled along with some of the other political Military complex members who do nothing but start up wars for their campaign pay and rank building. He started skirmishes with the Taliban at the end of Trumps term and did this behind the scenes, he is a sorry individual the same as Fauci is, liars and the biggest threats to our country now today.

    I CAN'T stand Gen. Milley or Obama and I pray for them to die a rotten death and wind up in Hell for eternity!!! They are 100% TRAITORS and SHOULD be executed for TREASON.

    I have sent two letters to Milley and Milley WANTS to vaccinate ALL BRANCHES of the military with this untested, unproven, DEADLY covid vaccine, that the drug companies have all said, "This is an experimental drug, you take them at your own risk!!" This is the equivalent of putting ALL your ships in the same harbor at the same time!!! Obama HATES this country, and Milley is an IDIOT!!!!

    Thank you Gov Huckabee for keeping us all informed. After reading this article, I shutter to think what will happen in the future! If we don't flip congress in the 2022 election, I fear we are doomed. I pray every day that God will intervene and help us. My husband is a disabled Vietnam Veteran and he says it really hurts to see what is happening to our military today. I have access to the EPOCH TIMES and will definitely read the entire segment. Please, keep up your good and diligent work in keeping us all informed of what's happening.

    As a veteran myself, US 1970 to 1974, it is appalling what they are doing to our armed services. But if you step back, take a deep breath and think about the last five years, this is the culmination of a deep deep hatred for our country s founded. Just think about what has transpired over the last five years, WE ARE RIGHT, YOU ARE WRONG WITH NO WIGGLE ROOM. The hatred directed at THE COUNTRY is from people who have never really accomplished anything in their lives and hate success. Another thing to think about, WHAT IS THE BACK BONE OF SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST REGIME???????????? A strong and loyal police and military force. The transformation in policing started years ago with the rise of BLM and further along with ANTIFA. The only reason they gained such notoriety is because the enabling of the very LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND THEIR MOUTH PIECES IN THE MSM. And now that they have ultimate control over the government the transformation of the military will begin. Our military is not concerned so much with our foreign enemies, but everything they talk about now is democratic talking points, CLIMATE CHANGE, WHITE SUPREMACY, CRT IN THE MILITARY and so on. Don’t listen to what thy say, but how they say it. Our military will be trining to fight another foreign enemy, but the imaginary internal enemy, who ever they deem it to be. Between resignations and forced outing of soldier deemed white supremacy demons our military will be fast tracked with acceptable replacements who swear a loyalty to the government, not to defend the country. JUST LOOK AT THE NEW OATHS THEY BEING FORCED TO ACKNOWLEDGE. What will be left our country

    The Epoch Times is well worth supporting. I enjoy being able to read a (weekly) newspaper without a left leaning slant, and being able to vent my frustrations by reading and writing comments on the online articles.

    Governor, Since when has our military become left or right, Republican or Democrat, is it not their job to defend these United States regardless of the politics they follow. Do they not take an oath to defend or face treasonous charges. Maybe someone needs to let them know what their job is, too many good soldiers have given their lives to defend our freedoms. Amen and God Bless these United States of America.
