Why Michael Flynn Poses A ‘Clear And Present Danger’

 

“The First Amendment allows freedom of speech. But there are some things that Louie Gohmert, Michael Flynn and these other folks are saying that borders on sedition,” says Rep. Bennie Thompson on the Trump allies’ recent comments at a QAnon-backed conference.

    1. Yeah, i was wondering how much proof do people need that flynn is an enemy of America take away his medals and badges and lock the traitor up!

    2. @Alex better than that American will be great again when DoD calls him back to active duty and then court marshall followed by firing squad for 4th of july for his well proven 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

      Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

      Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—

    3. @1776 SAR SUSAN CONSTANT You can only be blackmailed if you have done something very wrong, you cant blackmail an honest man.

  1. And he STILL hasn’t been arrested? Why? If he was some poor slob, trying to steal a gallon of milk, he’d be locked up.

    1. @Charles Brown then why did he require a pardon? And just watch. He will end back up in prison.

    2. @Charles Brown military trial is based on proving yourself not guilty; not citizen trials where you are innocent until proving guilty.

    3. @Frank A. Roose his pardon does not cover the seditious remarks made last weekend. Did you miss those?

    4. @Kelley Simonds  @Kelley Simonds  oh, I know. But he hasnt done anything illegal in citizen terms since being pardoned. Except for things people on the right like to parade as unpunishable “free speech”. They’re gonna make sure they have the means to get him locked up for good now.

    1. @Hey Yo Bottom line is, you’re supporting facism with trying do stagee coups for a wannabe dictator and putting down voting restrictions, we’re trying to support democracy by making it easier for all Americans to vote and helping our fellow Americans find their place.

    2. @MysticiaDev Creative Yes by mail in voting and stop counting ballots until we figure out how many votes you need for Quid Pro Quo Joe to win. If you believe he received 80 million votes then you must be related to Low IQ Maxine. Sleepy Joe is lucky if he got 40 million.

    3. @Hey Yo The thing we support, our fellow human beings, black or white, is probably the most American thing I can imagine. To make it clear that racism has no place in America. Meanwhile, the thing you support, saying that Trump should be a dictator, is by far the least American thing I’ve ever heard. You have no case to plead. Fact!

    4. @Hey Yo Now I won’t go in circles about anything with you. You’re not worth my time. If you wanna do a recount of all the ballots for the umpteenth time, phone any state you think was fraudulently called and send a request, they’ll help you guys out by doing an audit. If they find nothing and that the votes were fairly counted, then I suggest you should just can it. ALL it says about you is that you’re a sore loser who wanted Trump to win by saying the election was fraudulent or stolen.

    5. @Hey Yo THAT’S IT, I’m done here, I’m going back to my memes because at least they’re more rational and reasonable than you will ever be.

  2. Why is Michael Flynn still walking and talking in public? The man has been found guilty of lying and treasonous behavior!

    1. Josh Hawley. MTG, America’s very own, 21st century Holocaust survivor. Matt I-like-em-young Gaetz. Does that answer your question?

    2. @Demetria Karnavas Yes, the expansion of the aggrievement campaign so beloved by the tRump cult and internet trolls.

    3. Flynn is also still getting paid by the American tax payers for spreading treasonous lies. Really. $100K/year to do the Kremlin’s work. This is Trump’s America.

  3. The Army needs to take a long look at Flynn’s activities, they still have two years to recall him to active duty and courts-martial him.

    1. Actually the military doesn’t need to recall him to court martial him, he can be and should be court martialed right now and sent to levenworth

    2. @Robin Lewis I thought they had to recall, but if they don’t so much the better. He is a danger to the Republic and Constitution.

    3. Yes him and every single trumpie, I do hope the fbi and the military have a plan in place for their next insurrection attack because they are stupid enough to do it again

    4. And his brother’s who blocked the Pentagon’s response by not sending national guards on the 6th of Jan 2021. Or sent delayed response ,.. thorough investigation and some sort of Jan 6 commission could clarify these tiny yet very important details.
      One for sure, letting it simply go is not an option. All involved in the failed attempts to overthrow the democratically elected government should be brought to justice. No buts , exceptions whatsoever

  4. As a fully retired member of the US Military he is subject to recall into the ranks. He should be recalled and immediately become a subject to a Courts Martial

    1. @Auntie Pha – As a fully retired genetic researcher and vaccine developer, whose work is now under review for a Nobel Prize, for advancing vaccine research that has saved millions of lives worldwide, consider the big picture. Millions of Iraqi citizens are suffering terrible effects from the hundreds of tons of depleted uranium that was dropped on them in the form of bombs, for over 20 years. The real heroes, the genuine real heroes of America are those trying to mitigate their suffering, which is beyond belief.
      Now you know who the heroes are. SMH.

    1. Daily Reminder: Moby Trump has asserted that anthropogenic climate change is a Chinese hoax

  5. Borders on sedition? No, I teach Poli. Sci. That was sedition as it was by Matt Gaetz with his “using the 2nd. Amendment speech.

    1. @Ronald Lapworth Thanks for your thoughtful answer which, incidentally, did not leave my head as a bleeding stump. You have to understand, when I have been displeased with medical treatments, I started referring to the doctors involved as “medical artists”. I guess I have a bias towards chemistry, physics and abstract math (given that I hold graduate or undergrad degrees in all 3). Again, thanks for your response, it sure gives me something to think about – and rarely does any response I receive on You Tube elicit such an outcome

    2. @José Hunter’s EW&F Remixes
      Wow! I loved time in the chemistry lab! I took several university science courses- biology, chemistry, microbiologist, anatomy and physiology. I enjoy watching surgeries.

    3. @Ronald Lapworth I was kinda dangerous in the chem lab. I used to spill chemicals all over the place. I was better with the theoretical stuff. Surgeries? EWWWW!

    4. @José Hunter’s EW&F Remixes – Can you explain why airplanes have no trouble landing on a ball globe spinning 1,000 mph away from them when they land at 160 mph? Density is not part of the answer.

  6. Pay attention to what Michael Flynn said…He is giving a heads up… Something is in the works…He is giving us fair warning.

  7. Both Flynn brothers need to be arrested for treason and stripped of their rank and privileges. I angers me when Michael Flynn stands up and calls on God and country. He obviously doesn’t care about defending either. He and his brother took an oath to defend our country. Apparently he didn’t mean that either.

  8. Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward rebellion against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent toward, or insurrection against, established authority. … Seditious words in writing are seditious libel.

  9. Is Flynn the one who started the chant “lock her up”? The irony because he was locked up but only pardoned. Bring him back to jail! Lock the traitor up!

    1. Can’t believe the flyer behind them for God and Country, God abhors lies and Qanon conspiracies so I don’t know why these people are blaspheming themselves.

  10. Michael Flynn must go to jail now not later before he runs to Russia and go in business with trump and give up his USA citizenship

  11. A Clear And Present Danger. Michael Flynn needs to be immediately arrested and charged with treason.

  12. Inciting sedition is against military law. This ex-general needs to face immediate courts martial proceedings.

    1. It’s not even surprising. This is the same country that profits from the genocide in Yemen while complaining about the one in myanmar. Americans made sure that double standards are the norm by refusing to ever hold themselves accountable.

  13. Do a YouTube search for:
    “Take The Oath: General Michael Flynn Pledges Oath To QAnon”

    Yes, Michael Flynn really recorded and posted the video to Twitter himself.
