An open letter was issued to the American people from over 120 retired Generals warning that our “Our Nation is in deep peril.” There is fight going on in Congress for the survival of our country remaining a Constitutional Republic. Some of the signatories included retired Army Brig. General Donald Bolduc, running for Senate in New Hampshire, retired Army Lt. General William Boykin and retired Vice Admiral John Poindexter who was the deputy national security advisor to President Ronald Reagan.
Some signatories include retired Army Brig. General Donald Bolduc, retired Army Lt. General William Boykin and retired Vice Admiral John Poindexter. “We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty,” the letter reads.
These generals all who pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, are ringing the bell to protect our nation from the threats to her freedom.
A Warning from Military Whistleblowers We Must Heed
They warned us that without fair and honest elections, which are supposed to reflect the will of the people, our Republic is lost. This means election integrity, ensuring that there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. State legislatures approve such controls by using government IDs and verified signatures. This, of course, by the liberal left is considered “racist.” Although, as ridiculous as it sounds, it is not considered “racist” if one is asked for an ID to board a plane or to purchase a ticket to attend a football game or other event.
Critical Race Theory, which is a purely Marxist teaching, denounces the United States and Western culture as oppressive. It teaches that American culture and institutions are promoting “systemic racism” or “white supremacy.” This is being taught and pushed in our schools, military bastions such as West Point, and even in all the ranks of the standing armed forces.
The military for decades has been one of the institutions in society where you get ahead based on your own performance and merit, no matter what the color of your skin, who your parents were, or where you came from. Now they want to change it to be absolutely inclusive and promote equity. Both of these terms are constantly used in social justice rhetoric. So your performance and ability is no longer valid, any one just gets accepted and progresses up the ranks whether they are capable or not.
Ending our Safety Nationally and Abroad
The armed services are supposed to have a bond, a sense of brotherhood, and loyalty to one another regardless of ethnicity. This camaraderie between soldiers keeps them safe in battle, as they know their back is being covered and it forms a lasting bond. If this is destroyed any war we venture into will be undoubtedly lost.
These theories also make the soldiers less likely to follow commands by their superior officers, causing loss of the objective and most of all, loss of life.
What Can We Do?
We must get rid of the officers who promote Critical Race Theory which is really Socialism, Marxism, and Progressivism. If we do not the greatest military in the world will be weakened, and worse yet may turn on its own countrymen.
We know that if we have a Marxist military, the possibility of them going door to door and arresting patriotic citizens could very will become a reality.
First we must support and hold accountable our politicians who will act to counter Socialism, Marxism and Progressivism. We must throw out the left-wing politicians in the 2022 elections and support the representatives at the federal, state and local levels who will act to save America, not destroy it.
We must get involved in our school boards at all levels whether we have children or not, as we as taxpayers are paying for the public education system and, in turn, demand that Critical Race Theory not be taught in our schools.
And most of all we must pray to Almighty God that he will protect us. In 1 Chronicles 12 God gathered up a mighty army. The men were strong, warriors, mighty men of valour and not of a double heart. They were God fearing, and they trusted God to make them of one heart to win the battle.
This is the kind of military and citizenry we need to protect the American people and our cherished freedoms. Our liberty and historic values are at stake.
