    The folks who attempted to overthrow our government need to be locked up

      @Chantelle IsAfricaBound After You…

    • @Ralph Sims pathetic cultist. You live in a world of delusions.

    • @Chantelle IsAfricaBound
      Why does it have to be Africa?
      I know a few black people who moved to Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean islands.
      They seem to be very happy there.
      There’s a whole world of countries out there to explore and relocate to.
      It doesn’t take $1 million to do it either, unless you want to retire.

      @Sarah F good lol. I love that I own you now

      @Sarah F btw civilian. It’s POG 😂😂😂. I love when civilian cowards try to use military lingo and mess it up.

    • @OEF Combatveteran and members of the military calling civilians cowards is such a great look. As if you are the only ones with a risky job.

      @darena12 I know for a fact you and little Sarah don’t have a dangerous job (if you even have a job)

    • @OEF Combatveteran truly representing the best of our armed forces you are. You know nothing.

  4. I really hope this all calms down soon, it’s been a long four years.

    It might not have been seen but its always been there.

  6. Excellent show.

  7. Pretty good input by both guests. The “Failure to Recognize” is inexplicable. In my experience, since at least the mid-80’s there was a lot of recruitment for especially white supremacist groups amongst Army and Marines. Probably the case in other services too.

    if what he said about *Bragg* is true then that Fort’s name needs to be changed real soon.

    Yes as an Air Force vet, get rid of any statues, military installation names etc. that are offensive! It does not serve us in any way!

    • Unknown Variable | April 12, 2021 at 9:41 PM | Reply

      @Mimzy Jinx If you say you are not I will take your word for it but it is curious you 1534 post and the majority are negative about black people even the example you gave. I guess I must be wrong, thank you for responding civilly.

    • @Unknown Variable That’s what used to happen all the time. Civil discussion. Mutual respect. Once you start labeling an entire group of people as white supremacists, white nationalists, nazi’s this is what you can expect. First they will try to adjust their behavior because they are horrified at the idea of being any of those things. Eventually they realize that nothing they can say or do matters. Then they will stop trying. The current path we are on leads to inevitable destruction and you better start asking yourself why the media and the Democrats are committed to it. The media radicalizes people every day.

      @Unknown Variable I admire your civility here, I would not have your patience with the other poster.

    • Unknown Variable | April 12, 2021 at 10:08 PM | Reply

      @Christine King thank you

    • @Mimzy Jinx if you believe as you say “the media is radicalizing people every day”, why are you watching this media post?
      Do you want to be radicalized?
      Do you think you have some unique super-power to fend off and see through the evil media?
      Are you here watching and posting to save us all from this evil media?
      Do you think your some type of savior or truth-teller?
      What is your reason for being here watching and posting on something your clearly distrust and despise?
      There must be something you could be doing that would be more productive and rewarding. Consider volunteering.

    Domestic terrorism plays right into the new GOP playbook. Divide and conquer.

      Now we have to VOTE SO MANY REPUBLICONS OUT OF POWER in 2022 and 2024 so that they lose all power and influence over the country. *They are THE ONES who have consistently stopped the country from moving forward.*

    • BS… @gop just learnt they can get away with 18 U.S. Code § 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government.Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

    • Trump was just a symptom. We’ve done little root out the real sickness.

    • The best thing will be when some one finally convicted DTrump for trying to overthrow the election. And lying about the voter fraud and he scammed so many people and people got hurt and killed on the 6th. And Trump enjoyed it. Wow
      Everything is so open and shameless clear. Hope justices will be done soon. How can people trust Trump with money? And with leading the country??

    Not only we have to fight covid-19 but we have to deal with this situation of extremism, brother against brother.

    • These conservatives aren’t our brothers. They are the enemy of this country. What they did on the 6th. The support they have shown for it. Their using the same lies to now suppress voters? These aren’t the actions of your “brother” they are the actions of the enemy

    Sounds like these people lack education. Not only in history but how to behave as human beings.

  16. Speaking from my own experience this went on at least since the early 80s when on two separate occasions I was asked while in uniform to join the KKK which I laughed at. I saw cowardice in one of these people that begged me to break his leg prior to a deployment so I simply gave him directions to the roof. Another thing that I personally don’t like is when somebody my age says thank you for your service and when I ask them did they serve, I get the response usually that oh no I can’t take orders so that’s why I didn’t serve at which time I feel so patronized because I don’t care what role you play in society, you still take orders from somebody whether you’re a business owner you’re taking orders from your customers otherwise your store does not survive. If you’re a CEO of a company you still take orders for your company or corporation otherwise that will then fail and you’ll be out of a job. The only difference between now and then is access among others to discuss things like this thanks to the internet or maybe because of the internet in which case it should not be happening but it probably will until this Earth is a Frozen snowball floating through space.

      Well said. I, too, was courted to join the Klan when I was in Marine Boot Camp in 1975. The person who courted me was also on Active Duty. It was laughable and especially so because I am a very light skinned Black man with Caucasian features. So no doubt this type of recruitment is occurring in the military among Whites

    • @Birthing Girdle Hats off to you. I would say sir but I know I hate being called that since I was an NCO in the USAF. Current technology does have its uses though but I still don’t know if it is good or bad judging from some of the trolls on YouTube. Just the other day I even had one trying to impersonate a veteran which was obvious when he said he was in a 100 man division 🤯🤯 along with stating that none of them drank alcohol.

    • Thank you for being one of the Great Brave Americans who Served our Country & Showed that Coward where the Roof was….even though He most likely was to Scared to Jump ⁉️ Four Generations of my Family served our Country…My baby Brother A Recently Retired Airforce Kernel Hospital Administrator & Put All the Hospitals in every War Zone since Desert Storm …Including New York City after 9-11…So proud of Him‼️ Thank for sharing your Feelings‼️🇺🇸❤️✌🏼❤️🇺🇸‼️

    • @Laurie Smith Thank You & yes he was.

  17. It is not that just the military is radicalized, it is the Republican Party radicalized. When one of the two major political parties consists of radicalized elements – the whole country is on fire!

    Six members of the Seattle PD were at the capitol riots on January 6. Would be nice to know *who they are,* and if they have ties to the Proud Boys or other vigilante extremists. Alas, their identities and activities are being kept secret from the public.

    From what I understand ..on many military bases Fox and other White Wing ‘news’ outlets are played 24/7 on many if not most military bases..🤷🏾

  20. As an Honorably Discharged USAF Vet, I fully approve this message.
