… and leaves the craven dipshit’s quavering viscera on the abattoir floor.
James Mattis, Donald Trump’s erstwhile defense secretary, is speaking out — finally — about the ocher abomination and His Majesty’s misrule. And it ain’t pretty, folks.
The special occasion? Trump’s shameful response to the killing of George Floyd and the ensuing nationwide protests.
“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us,” Mattis said.“We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”
Last September, Mattis said he’d speak up when the time was right. Guess he wasn’t bluffing. And what better time than now?
He wasn’t done, of course:
The former secretary, who resigned from Trump’s Cabinet, also … indirectly criticized current Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s use of the word “battlespace” in reference to American cities.“We must reject any thinking of our cities as a ‘battlespace’ that our uniformed military is called upon to ‘dominate,'” Mattis said. “At home, we should use our military only when requested to do so, on very rare occasions, by state governors. Militarizing our response, as we witnessed in Washington, D.C., sets up a conflict—a false conflict—between the military and civilian society.”“It erodes the moral ground that ensures a trusted bond between men and women in uniform and the society they are sworn to protect, and of which they themselves are a part. Keeping public order rests with civilian state and local leaders who best understand their communities and are answerable to them.”
So how will Trump respond?
a) Fired like a dog?
b) A very low-IQ individual?
d) Beg for his job on his knees?
e) All of the above, and more?
Guess we’ll have to wait, let’s see, 10 minutes or so to find out?
