Thanks to Esper and the 3 M’s
Many thanks to you:
~ General Jim Mattis, former Secretary of Defense
~ Admiral Mike Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
~ Gen. Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
~ Mark T. Esper, US Secretary of Defense
Thank you for speaking on behalf of the citizens of these United States of America.
Thank you for standing up for our Constitutional right to peaceably assemble, even during this time of confusion and disruption.
Even while intrepid extremists act stealthily in the midst of some protesting groups — these provocateurs who illegally instigate violence in the midst of lawful protest — these anarchists have no power to derail the legitimate assembly of law-abiding citizens to petition our Government for the redress of grievances. . .
. . .these trouble-makers have no power to usurp our Rights, because you, our military leaders, stand on our behalf in defense of our Constitutional rights . . . most assuredly, our right to assemble.
With the vigilance and courage that you have shown in standing against unrestrained power, we are enabled in retaining assurance — as President Abraham Lincoln assured us at Gettysburg — that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.
