    This guy is brainwashed by the system read the declaration of independence and tell me if the people on that document were crazy? People who agree with this jerk aren't willing to acknowledge and accept that we are under a corrupt government and need to stand up for ourselves. Apparently many people don't realize that everyone in this country is a slave to the system and if we come together its easy to get out

    There is so much misinformation going on in this comment section, it's astonishing. Michael Flynn never committed one single crime. James Comey had him interrogated in his office. The interrogation discovered that he told the truth to every question asked of him. That information was taken back to Comey who was told in no uncertain terms that the man was innocent. This was the direct evaluation of the investigations. Comey then began threatening Flynn's family until he confessed to a crime that he did not commit. All of this information is available and public knowledge. Insult me, call me a liar, but I know the truth and you can't handle the truth. If I can change just one person's mind about who the real danger to society is then I have done more than most people do in a lifetime.

    Seriously...maybe it's the old Topeka State Hospital ward clerk in me, but I think there is sufficient evidence to put Trump, Flynn and Bill Barr on a Psychiatric Assessment hold. They have all 3 demonstrated they're a danger to others by their consistent speech. This is heinous that people in our government could be this uninsightful.

  • redman0324

    You fools don't realize how much you owe General Flynn, many of you with your lives depending on where you lived in 2011. When Flynn speaks it's not out of his ass and for you to depict him as a fool is disgraceful and shows how ignorant and partisan/ brainwashed you are. Yes, usually when their is a coup as was this multi faceted communist coup that occurred on November 3rd there is a counter coup, albeit usually not successful.

    Honestly general Flynn, is well respected and it has been proven, that he did nothing wrong in the Russian collusion case, it was witch hunt to take down a patriot. Also, maybe he just knows way more than the average person does, Information changes reality.

    While you or I could say what Flynn said with relative impunity, he is retired and drawing a military pension. Under 10USC802(a)(4), he is subject to the UCMJ as long as he is drawing pay, therefore if what he says is in violation of the UCMJ then he can be prosecuted under military law.

  • gxulien

    Flynn's speech was intended and likely to cause imminent danger of tweet, shares and news reports. 🤔

    Recall to activate duty and charge him under the UCMJ. It's at the very least behaviour unbecoming. He's an absolute disgrace.

    So Patriots are now deemed "crazy people" by pussies who have yet to pick up a rifle and swear their induction oath?! Ok...tell me why, those of us Patriots who are armed to the teeth are worried about offending these sissies rather than kicking teeth in and fixing this country!? General Flynn, this soldier is still faithful to his oath and will take all lawful orders, SIR!

    Wait, so we won't see him in court anytime soon because this former Army general and former National Security Adviser to the POTUS is "a crazy person?" Damn. It sounds like we might not see anyone in court for encouraging a coup ever again because doing so means they're "a crazy person." Good to know. Don't tell the people who are on board for that sort of thing.

    • Kevin Reagan
      Kevin Reagan

      @Steve Smith Is that the requirement? Does it have to be "likely to happen," as opposed to a realistic possibility or reasonable plausibility? If so, what delineates the likelihood of the threatened action to occur? He is a prominent military officer with ties to a former presidency that encouraged an attempted coup... encouraging a violent military coup. If that isn't inciting violence, I'd love to hear what clears that bar! Do you think that a US general recommending a violent military coup similar to an event in another country that _just_ happened is equivalent to "threatening to shoot with laser eyes?"

    • Steve Smith
      Steve Smith

      It has to be likely to happen. The military isn't overthrowing the US government anytime soon Same reason why a death threat has to be realistic I threaten to shoot you with a gun. Thats a death threat . I threaten to shoot you with my laser vision....that's crazy talk
