An open letter signed by more than 120 retired flag officers warned that the United States is under “tremendous assault” by those who believe in Socialism and Marxism, claiming that the Nation is in “grave danger,” according to a Breitbart report.
The retired officers encourage Americans to become more politically involved to act against Marxism, which is currently being pushed by far-left Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.
“Our Nation is in deep peril. 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 retired officers wrote.
A flag officer is a historical rank, both naval and military, and a title within Starfleet. It is generally used to refer to all higher-rank officers who were in command of a squadron of ships and possibly with direct command over one of them. In other words, the letter may carry weight in public opinion.
In the letter, the retired officials also criticized the opaque 2020 election process, noting that the House Democratic bill H.R. 1 and their Senate bill S. 1 would destroy the fairness of elections.
“Without fair and honest elections that accurately reflect the ‘will of the people,’ our Constitutional Republic is lost. Election integrity demands ensuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc.
“Today, many are calling such commonsense controls ‘racist’ in an attempt to avoid having fair and honest elections. Using racial terms to suppress proof of eligibility is itself a tyrannical intimidation tactic. Additionally, the ‘Rule of Law’ must be enforced in our election processes to ensure integrity. The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020. Finally, H.R.1 & S.1, (if passed), would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power violating our Constitution and ending our Representative Republic.'”
Regarding Biden’s policies and the threat from the Chinese regime
The senior officials also criticized Joe Biden for acting in a “dictatorial” manner by bypassing Congress, signing more than 50 executive orders since taking office.
Similarly, they also condemned the closure of schools and businesses and the censorship of written and verbal expression as direct attacks on the fundamental rights of Americans.
“We must support and hold accountable politicians who will act to counter Socialism, Marxism and Progressivism, support our Constitutional Republic, and insist on fiscally responsible governing while focusing on all Americans, especially the middle class. Not special interest or extremist groups which are used to divide us into warring factions,” the retired officers wrote.
The criticisms, of course, included the terrible border crisis since Biden took office and Biden-China relations.
“Illegals are flooding our Country bringing high economic costs, crime, lowering wages, and illegal voting in some states. We must reestablish border controls and continue building the wall while supporting our dedicated border control personnel. Sovereign nations must have controlled borders,” they said.
They also criticized Biden for establishing cooperative relations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), calling China “the greatest external threat to the United States.”
“We must impose more sanctions and restrictions to impede their world domination goal and protect America’s interests,” they wrote.
They also questioned Biden’s policy of halting the Keystone pipeline and urged its reopening to regain U.S. energy independence.
“Stopping the Keystone Pipeline eliminates our recently established energy independence and causes us to be energy dependent on nations not friendly to us, while eliminating valuable U.S. jobs. We must open the Keystone Pipeline and regain our energy independence for national security and economic reasons,” they wrote.
Military against communism-globalism
The letter from U.S. military retirees comes after a similar one published in France, which significantly impacted the media and public opinion.
Three weeks ago, the French conservative magazine Valeurs Actuelles published a letter, authored by 20 former generals, stating that France was “in danger,” claiming that “Islamism and the hordes of the suburbs,” were transforming the country, which was “disintegrating.”
The message, which called for a “coup d’état” against Macron’s globalist government, was also endorsed by a hundred high-ranking officers and more than a thousand military personnel.
What is the background to these military letters?
It carries considerable weight that high-ranking officers, albeit retired, are issuing a call to action to ordinary people. Perhaps it is a prelude to a time of change, where people wake up, rebel, and say, “We don’t want any more communist and globalist policies.” Perhaps that day is not so far away.
