Loooser! Unamerica looser!

Un-American? LOL. I thought USA only know how to solve problems by shooting, bombing & nuking

Yep:

michikokakutani After almost 4 years of Trump, I believe Trump is un-American Our Government is supposed to be 'for the people, by the people and of the people' but that is not how our Government is operating.

Sec of Defense, does an end run on the Commander and Chief. After that whole ship captain that went the press this guy thinks he will make the decision. No IF the decision is made you will say YES SIR

Nobody believe you.

Trump's motive is to frighten people into thinking that society is collapsing...he thinks that frightened people will believe him when he says, 'Only I can save you,' and will vote for him in November. GOP TheDemocrats TheResistance realDonaldTrump WhiteHouse

The Military is not a culture, it is a job. If those are their feelings, it is a culture of falsely assumed entitlement and laziness.

It is also unAmerican to label protesters as terrorists to justify military action against we the people.

JehJohnson put a cork in it. you worked for that racist the kenyan didn't you?

DON'T FORGET THE REPEAT PERFORMANCE OF THE MOST CORRUPT FASCIST ATTORNEY GENERAL IN THE HISTORY OF THE USA. WILLIAM BARR SET THE MILITARY ON CIVILIANS AND USED THE INSURRECTION ACT 28yrs AGO IN LA. HE WANTS TO USE IT AGAIN. HE HAS LEARNED NOTHING AND IS EVIL.

A bunch of Obama appointees. Why should we be impressed? They're hacks!

Ok got the “un-American” part, BUT is it illegal or unconstitutional? Can you please answer this?

Trump does not have to use the military he only has to say he will and the democrats react in madness and irrational fear. Trump is playing a psychological game and the democrats are totally losing the game. He has reduced democrats to paranoia and insanity.

It is not un-American. Presidents have used troops to 5 times in US.

The question is WHO ARE THOSE INDIVIDUALS DRESSED AS SOLDIERS BUT WON'T IDENTIFY THEMSELVES!

I don't think it's the protest he cares about, it's the rioting and violence caused by MSNBC viewers. You guys are dog whistling to radical left wing terrorist to go assault people and rob businesses.

This is exactly what Americans are facing from news organizations like MSNBC, division, and hate. This does no good for the death of any man or woman of color. Digging deeper to create a gap between us. We just want peace, we want to live together as friends and family. peace

Keep hearing lip service on the Military Code of Honor. Let’s see it kick in, I’ve been informed that the line was crossed.

In other words, tRump is a big ass.

Chosen ministers turned the least of these, into people that do not matter.

Unamerican? Is that all her can say? It’s pure thuggery of the highest order! The military is supposed to serve the nation, not Trump.

Was it America. When Bush and Obama used the miltery ? Is it American to just let city’s burn ?

So what...... attorneygeneral BILL BARR ORDERED RUBBER BULLETS & TEARGAS B USED ON UNITED STATES CITIZENS & JOURNALISTS! UNLESS THE CONDEMNATION COMES FROM SOMEONE WHO WILL ACT ON IT..... I DON'T CARE!

Leave it the a progressive outlet to condemn outrage of righteousness.

Not one single Protestor has been threatened. Antifa now! That's a different story. Looters, rioters, murderers: that's a different story.

Retired general's had no issues with the taking of lives and destroying countries elsewhere for oil, gold, zinc etc but now this is a shock!?! Ffs

This ingrained, systemic inequality and resentment is precisely what Putin recognized when he sent Trump to exacerbate that fragmentation to destabilize the US.
