Many Americans have been shocked by the recent, seemingly spontaneous and “fundamental” transformation of their beloved country. Fueled by a pandemic and widespread disorder, sweeping changes in public policy, our economy and lives are undermining our freedoms and security.
Amidst this turmoil, some senior retired military officers have denounced President Trump’s efforts to restore order as a threat to the Constitution, rather than an effort – per oaths both he and they have sworn – to defend it.
We are reaping the whirlwind sown by our failure to prevent the decades-long “march” of Marxists through our various institutions. Millions of students educated by them, businesses influenced by them, politicians tied to them and officers promoted by them are on the march, literally as well as figuratively. The rest of us will not recognize, or be welcome in, the transformed nation that’s their intended destination.
