Engaged in a discussion tonite on FB with a veteran friend. I appreciate his intellect, his legal background, his service as a CAP Marine in Vietnam. His followers largely differ with my own politics but no matter; we find some common ground.
Tonite he posted about Kelly’s comments following the Rump phone call…and shortly afterwards, deleted the post, acknowledging that he was not up to speed on the FACTS.
I called him out, back channel, urging him to repost. I know that ALL of his followers regard him as an “honest broker”. I wanted HIS authorship on this discussion with his followers. He reposted. Some have engaged with fair analysis; some have been content to dismiss this congresswoman out of hand, fuck the facts. For her personal style, for her rigorous advocacy for her constituency and most basely for her gender and race.
Homey don’t play that shit. I will call you and any-fucking-one else out if you dismiss legitimate public concerns out of your inherent racism.
General Kelly stepped on his dick. We’re gonna see how a Marine generals regard of honor informs his next public announcement. Semper Fi? Your fidelity is to truth and to the American people. Do not allow this flawed president to tarnish your own legacy. Own it and drive on!
