General John Allen Knows Trump’s UnChristian Heart

General John Allen (U.S. Marines, ret.) has joined General James Mattis and Admiral Mike Mullen in damning President Donald Trump, in the wake of the police murder of George Floyd. These retirees of the “too white” upper echelons of the United States Armed Forces have become virtue signaling, keyboard, social justice warriors. Pity.

All of the Victory Girls’ writers have long been fans of General James Mattis. You can well understand our disappointment at his self-serving denouncement of the President. General Mattis doesn’t seem to grasp the difference between the protesters and the violent insurrection that is usurping the national grief at the murder of George Floyd. You can read General Mattis’s words here.

Admiral Mike Mullen (U.S. Navy, ret.) was the 17th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Similarly to Mattis, the Admiral cannot see the difference between the righteous protesters and the Molotov cocktail throwing anarchists. Righteous protesters don’t burn churches or their neighbors’ businesses. The city streets are a battlefield which our police and military must dominate. Else, we will lose the city streets. You can read the Admiral’s words here.

I want to focus then on General John Allen. First of all, John Allen gave an impassioned speech at the 2016 Democrat National Convention supporting the nomination of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the Presidential nominee. Here is a snippet of his speech:

Allen trusted in Hillary’s vision and judgement. You get the picture. I see Benghazi.

The General Officers of the United States Military are appointed by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. They are, by necessity, political creatures and need to know which the direction the wind is blowing. John Allen may be sniffing the breeze to smell a Democrat victory this November. I don’t care.

The virtue signalling by John Allen is reprehensible. He wrote a piece for Foreign, “A Moment of National Shame and Peril—and Hope”. He wrote:

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.

Well, that’s hopeful.

The president of the United States stood in the Rose Garden of the White House on Monday, railed against weak governors and mayors who were not doing enough, in his mind, to control the unrest and the rioters in their cities, and threatened to deploy the U.S. military against American citizens. It was a stunning moment. But, in particular, it was notable for three important reasons.

The President was right to rail against the feckless state and local leaders who didn’t protect the peaceful protesters from anarchists who used them as human shields. Maybe, Mr. Allen is unaware of the lives and livelihoods destroyed by the anarchists. Maybe, Mr. Allen didn’t hear the family of George Floyd beg for peace. Or, maybe Mr. Allen thinks that destruction is normal (Benghazi).

I am not going to go through the General’s three reasons. You can if you wish to torture yourself. Instead, I want to focus on one section of one paragraph. Here it is:

Donald Trump isn’t religious, has no need of religion, and doesn’t care about the devout, except insofar as they serve his political needs.The president failed to project any of the higher emotions or leadership desperately needed in every quarter of this nation during this dire moment. We know why he did all this on Monday. He even said so while holding the Bible and standing in front of the church. It was about MAGA—“making America great again.”

I am a back-sliding, cursing, Scotch drinking Southern Baptist, so I know I have no right to judge anyone else’s faith. Apparently, General Allen is so close to God that he has insight into the hearts and minds of others. Donald Trump was born and raised Presbyterian. I am no theologian, but the Presbyterians I have known are not big on showy faith. Most men, in general, are not huge in showy types of faith. Maybe, it’s a Matthew 6 thing.

Allen says that Trump has no need of religion. Is he saying that Trump isn’t human? I know that that’s not what Allen is saying. He thinks Trump is a megalomaniac who thinks he is God. Maybe it’s projection.

I wish these Generals would do us all a favor and fade away. They, the Generals and Admirals, are throwing C4 into the fire. In four months, we have survived an attempted impeachment/coup, a pandemic incarceration and now an insurrection. We still have the 17 year locusts to go. The General Officers could be helpful by shutting up.

    When you are part of satansuck of satansanus in satansevilbluehouseof PeeOhEss (D), and all places blue on the RED / BLUE voting map, it really rots your damn mind.

    Don’t let any of these mfrs distract from the tasks at hand, crush the ay-whole-invasion, Ramp-UP the attacks on Rosenstein until he rolls on all the other turds that need to go to jail from the former DOJ / FBI / CIA / NSC, etc.

    AND . . . wait for it . . . REMEMBER HONG KONG.

    “First of all, John Allen gave an impassioned speech at the 2016 Democrat National Convention supporting the nomination of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the Presidential nominee.”… Toni, that right there is all anyone needs to read, the rest is superfluous. Anyone that would support that murderous bitch does NOT have Americas best interests at heart.
    Unlike Mattis who had at least seemed to be a positive force for our republic, Gen Allen declared himself nearly 4 years ago to be an enemy of the state.

    C-4 burns goodly.

  • Lloyd says:

    The military is anything but “real life”, and yet military personnel assume we will accept their opinions as gospel. While I respect those who serve and have served, I don’t give their opinions any more credence than those from the end of the bar in any local gin mill.

  • Ted says:

    Sensing weakness in the President’s re-election prospects, jackals position themselves to show honest Injun they never liked him so that a new administration, or MSNBC, CNN, or some other high-paid gig will pick them up.

  • Harlan says:

    This is shameful behavior. This general is using the weight of his stars to blast a Republican when he has openly lobbied for the dimocrats in the past. Utterly shameful.

  • Tippy Tulips says:

    Why don’t you write a piece deounccing General Mattis?
