American Military News was given a letter from retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West and 600 other veterans which denounced Marxism in the United States, and the military’s “wokeness.”
These freedom fighters are from The American Constitutional Rights Union. According to their website the “ACRU stands against harmful, anti-constitutional ideologies that have taken hold in our nation’s courts, schools, and bureaucracies.”
“As former members of the U.S. military who have proudly served our nation, we write to express our support for Constitutional freedom and liberty and our concern for our country as many powerful forces seek to bring Socialism and Marxism to our land,” the letter started.
It continued, “We oppose the politicization and ideological purging of our military. The focus of our military should be on training, readiness, and defense of our Nation, not leftist cultural ‘wokeness.’”
“When we agreed to serve our country, we pledged to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the letter continues. “During our active-duty service, we did just that. Today, although no longer active-duty warriors, we are still bound to this pledge and believe we are ethically obligated to protect our country. As such, we put our nation’s leadership on notice. We believe the hard left turn toward Socialism and Marxism endangers our citizens and the future of this great nation. Although a difficult step to take, we believe this step is necessary for us to continue to demonstrate the integrity and moral courage our oath requires,” they added.
