Traitorous Gen. Mark Milley reportedly suggested the 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots, which caused an estimated one billion dollars in damage, were trivial, according to authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in the book Peril.
“Mr. President, they are not burning it down,” Milley told former President Trump about the riots sparked by George Floyd’s death. “We’re a country of 330 million people. You’ve got these penny packet protests,” Milley reportedly said, using a phrase for something trivial. “They used spray paint, Mr. President, that’s not an insurrection.”
One billion dollars of damage, not to mention the dozens of lives lost, including law enforcement officers, is not a “penny packet protest.” It is revolution.
According to the New York Post, Milley reportedly told Trump the U.S. military should not be involved in the 2020 riots because the “protests were understandable given systemic racism,” which he claimed was “pent up in communities that have been experiencing what they perceive to be police brutality.”
Milley, you may recall, is the same general who told the House Armed Services Committee, “I want to understand White rage. And I’m White. I’ve read Mao Zedong. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist. So what is wrong with understanding… the country which we are here to defend?”
Milley is not here to defend this country. He is here to subvert it.
