Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley got way out of line Wednesday, scolding members of Congress while defending the inclusion of ultra-progressive racialist literature in military curricula.

The moment, which took place during a congressional hearing, occurred after Republican lawmakers pressed the general on the extent to which members of the military are exposed to critical race theory. Republican Rep. Mike Waltz of Florida, a National Guard colonel and former Green Beret, asked specifically whether West Point cadets were really asked to attend a seminar on “white rage.”

Milley responded with an answer that was as self-righteous as it was emotional. Neither is appropriate for a man in his position.

I prefer something like "Committed To Blowing The Hell Out Of Anyone Who Messes With Us."

Well so much for Apolitical Military

Pence national security advisor: Milley comments on imagined Trump plot 'seditious,' if true

If Joint Chiefs chairman's implied threat to intervene against Trump "with the guys with the guns" is accurately reported, then "he has violated his oath of office" and "he should go," said retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg.

Kellogg on the podcast elaborated on his Friday tweets about comments attributed to Milley in a newly released book, "I Alone Can Fix It," by Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker.

The book reports that Milley feared Trump would attempt to stage a coup in order to remain in the White House past Jan. 20, when Joe Biden was inaugurated as president.

"They may try, but they're not going to f------ succeed," Milley told his deputies while discussing the possibility of a coup, according to the book. "You can't do this without the military. You can't do this without the CIA and the FBI. We're the guys with the guns."

If quoted accurately, the remarks violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Kellogg wrote Jan. 16 on Twitter.

Mark Milley and Lloyd Austin fail to impress

Paul Mirengoff

July 22, 2021

Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chief of Staffs, and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, a retired general, held a press conference yesterday. The two managed to demonstrate one of two things. Either they are stupid or they believe the American public is stupid.

Let’s start with Austin. He assured reporters that Milley “doesn’t have a political bone in his body.” But at the same conference, Milley could not deny that he compared Donald Trump to Adolph Hitler. That’s a political view, and an idiotic one.

Austin also stated that he and Milley are committed to having a military that looks like America in terms of diversity from the bottom to the top. That’s a political view, too. Many Americans believe that our institutions, including the military (I would say especially the military) should be committed to promoting its best qualified members regardless of what they look like.

Milley spent much of the press conference trying to tap dance his way around the fact that Afghanistan appears to be falling to the Taliban. On the subject of Trump and the election, Milley said that the military “did not, and will not, and should not ever get involved in domestic politics.” He claimed to have followed this principle.
