America prides itself on its divide between civilian leadership and the military, but the line has been crossed by over a dozen four-star generals who have spoken out and acted against the president of United States (“Mold-breaking: Generals’ attacks on Trump drag military into partisan fight,” Web, June 4). Their conduct is unjustified and unprofessional. They have entered a cultural war and support Socialist-Democrat propaganda and causes, such as Black Lives Matter and “defund the police.”

These slogans are driven by the radical left and create policy that encourages going to large protests during COVID-19 but does not allow going to church, schools or working in the free market. The “defund the police” narrative tries to drive a wedge between law enforcement and the American people, destroying recovery from the pandemic as well as ruining economic growth and freedom.

The elections of Democratic Party leaders who encourage the war on cops are funded by liberal billionaires and directed by deep-state officials, including Barack Obama. The cultural war should not include military leaders who may be seen as politicians and coup plotters against President Trump. In many instances, they violate orders for conduct after retirement from the armed forces.
