George Floyd and Donald Trump

For posterity, I am posting the video which gruesomely shows the murder of George Floyd here. It needs to be seen to be believed.

For posterity, I am posting a memo, dated 2 June 2020, from General Mark Milley in which he reminds all military personnel their duty to uphold the US constitution.

letter2

Quoting Jim Mattis, Trump’s former Defence Secretary: “When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens -much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.”

Writing in ForeignPolicy.com here, Retired Marine Corp four-star General John Allen, stated.

“The slide of the United States into illiberalism may well have begun on June 1, 2020. Remember the date. It may well signal the beginning of the end of the American experiment.”

We will see.
