Skip to comments.Military Joint Chiefs Denounce Charlottesville Racism
Posted on 08/16/2017 8:52:56 PM PDT by Timpanagos1
A group of military leaders broke with President Donald Trump and rebuked the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville over the weekend a near-historic development for U.S. civil-military relations.
Since Sunday, five U.S. service chiefs representing the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and National Guard have tweeted their denunciation of the white nationalists whose rally led to the killing of a counter-protester on Saturday. Two police officers covering the rally also died when their helicopter crashed.
The joint chiefs condemnation of racism and white supremacist groups is notable because it stands in stark contrast with Trump's statements that blamed both white-nationalist marchers and counter-protesters even though it was a Nazi sympathizer who caused all of the casualties.
It is also remarkable because American military leaders tend to stay outside of the political arena.

This is both embarrassing and #d up.
That is... embarrassing for the Joint Chiefs, and certainly not Trump.
Still think the Military will side with the Patriots when the hammer goes down?
These peeps are allowed to have public political positions?
Are the Joint Chiefs smoking YUGE dope or taking Hopium?
Trump is getting crapped on by just about everyone. This is going to continue for his entire administration. How long before political and racial fatigue sets in with those middle-ground voters who put him in the White House?
>>>even though it was a Nazi sympathizer who caused all of the casualties<<<
Well, there you go.
It was the Mentally Ill Kid in the Challenger, and we know nothing of his intent if he even had one.
They just exposed themselves as.....bought and owned.
How do these Mensa feel about islams, blm, antifaduh and the other anti-white trash?

Guess these are the generals/admirals, etc that were not purged by Obama...
I lost count, but I know a number of purges occurred under obama!
Well, Trump denounced & repudiated it many, many times, so I don't see where it is in stark contrast to anything except lyin' NBC's eyes.
Trump is gonna need a bigger purge.
“Are the Joint Chiefs smoking YUGE dope or taking Hopium?”
I don’t think so. They basically said what Trump said Sunday. The media is trying to manufacture news based on what I read.
These media scum are sick.
How did he kill the state troopers? Why is anyone making the point to condemn only Nazis and not communists? And how does this concern the military? This is bizarre. Is that much of our society this addled by the left?
Time to replace the joint chiefs...
