Brilliantly stated. Both the latent but still virulent anti-military sentiment that has been at the core of the Progressive Far Left since before World War II, and the rapidly growing focus on the supposed internal threat which law enforcement has used as justification to become increasingly militarized.
Because, in their heart of hearts, they don’t like the whole concept of an Army, and want to change it into some sort of fluffy-bunny simulacrum. That and because DoD is the one institution they can play with that will just do what it’s told. Oft times reluctantly, but in the end it does what it’s told.
While, ironically, they make domestic law enforcement, especially on the Federal level, more and more like… an Army.
Give it a read. Damned little of the “change” in the “Hope and Change” era has been progress. In fact, the cascading effects downstream will likely be catastrophic, for our Armed Forces and our nation. And if our fervent hopes that things turn out otherwise are dashed, why, there will be internal “threats” aplenty for the army of Law Enforcement to take care of.
