Analysis: Liberal Media Okay With Treason If It Hurts Trump, Helps Democrats (Video)

As we and others reported, a new book by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa alleges that woke Gen. Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, contacted his counterpart in the Communist Chinese military and promised to warn him if former President Trump decided to attack the nation.  For most of us, the idea that a high-ranking general would actually contact his counterpart in a hostile nation to undermine his own country and his own president is treason.

But it seems the liberal media is just fine with treason, so long as it hurts Donald Trump and is done in the service of the Democrat Party.  We’ve already told you about Joy Reid, the unhinged MSNBC ignoramus who claimed Milley’s alleged actions make him heroic.

But she’s not the only one.  According to Newsbusters:

“Are you so stupid, I just got to ask, are you so stupid, are you so ignorant of how things work that you don’t know that from time to time generals talk to generals?”

That eye-rolling question from MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was typical of the liberal media’s reaction to the news that General Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had called his Chinese counterpart to tell him that if then-President Donald Trump were about to launch a nuclear attack on China, he — self-important Mark Milley — would call the Chinese General to warn him.

To answer Scarborough’s question? It is perfectly true that generals from different countries talk to one another from time to time. But it is unbelievable that Joe Scarborough or any media figure thinks it’s OK for the American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to call his Chinese (or Russian or North Korean or Cuban) counterpart to advise him he will be notified ahead of time of any impending U.S. attack or military action. That is decidedly not normal.

In sane times, it wouldn’t be normal.  But we no longer live in sane times.

Jeffrey Lord put it in context:

To put this in a historical context, can you imagine the Allied commander on June 5, 1944 — that would be General Dwight D. Eisenhower — picking up the phone to tell German Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt, supreme commander of the German troops in Western Europe, that the Allies are invading France the next day? And oh by the way, the Allies have also decided on landing in Normandy instead of Pas de Calais, where the English Channel is narrower — and where the Germans expected them to land. Then suppose Ike also told von Rundstedt that President Franklin Roosevelt needed a military success before the 1944 election so the invasion of France had to be done the next day.

Something tells me if MSNBC were around back in the day, they would probably have led the charge to hurt Allied troops.

As Fox reported, both CNN and MSNBC, the official network of insane liberal rage, hate and stupid lying liberal propaganda, had guests and analysts defending Milley’s actions.

CNN analyst Jaime Gangel argued in favor of Miley saying “Milley may be criticized for what some may think was overstepping his authority, but according to Woodward & Costa he felt he couldn’t trust Trump and that he needed to take any and all necessary precautions to prevent him from doing something dangerous.”

Lord added:

For a little perspective, Substack’s Glenn Greenwald changed the story a bit, tweeting this:

“Imagine if, in 2011, a right-wing General called Gaddafi and said: ‘Obama wants to bomb your country and usher in regime change against you even though the House voted *against* its authorization. I give you my word I’ll let you know what he’s planning & stop him from bombing.’”

The Obama-loving media would have – rightly – gone through the roof and eviscerated such a General.

On September 15, Fox News said media propagandists continued to praise Milley’s treacherous actions:

MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle said Wednesday the general’s phone calls, if true, would have been “common sense” in a Trump administration he said was marked by four years of “imbalance.” It was a common refrain for the press to suggest Trump was unhinged and unstable throughout his White House term.

“This is just common sense,” Barnicle said. “It’s called public safety. And certainly you can make a strong case during the conclusion of the former guy’s presidency, there were a lot of people, both in the House and the Senate on both sides of the aisle, Republican and Democrat, worried specifically about what we’ve just been talking about here for the last few minutes.”

The report adds:

On CNN, analyst Ret. Gen. Wesley Clark argued Milley was “within his rights” to make the calls and he would have been “derelict” in his duty if he hadn’t picked up the phone.

Several others, like CNN’s Mark Hertling, said Milley was justifiably trying to put “guardrails” in place between Trump and foreign policy disaster.

“Gen. Milley took some very prudent measures,” Hertling, a retired U.S. Army officer, said.

“What he did was ensure the guardrails were in place,” he later added. “So I give him high marks for this based on what’s described in the book.”

Translation: Treason is just fine, so long as it hurts Trump and helps Democrats.

Get it?  They really have become the enemy of the American people.  Let that sink in.
