Traitorous Gen. Mark Milley reportedly suggested the 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots, which caused an estimated one billion dollars in damage, were trivial, according to authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in the book Peril.
“Mr. President, they are not burning it down,” Milley told former President Trump about the riots sparked by George Floyd’s death. “We’re a country of 330 million people. You’ve got these penny packet protests,” Milley reportedly said, using a phrase for something trivial. “They used spray paint, Mr. President, that’s not an insurrection.”
One billion dollars of damage, not to mention the dozens of lives lost, including law enforcement officers, is not a “penny packet protest.” It is revolution.
According to the New York Post, Milley reportedly told Trump the U.S. military should not be involved in the 2020 riots because the “protests were understandable given systemic racism,” which he claimed was “pent up in communities that have been experiencing what they perceive to be police brutality.”
Milley, you may recall, is the same general who told the House Armed Services Committee, “I want to understand White rage. And I’m White. I’ve read Mao Zedong. I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist. So what is wrong with understanding… the country which we are here to defend?”
Milley is not here to defend this country. He is here to subvert it.

Founder of BLM Utah Chapter Says American Flag Is “Symbol of Hatred”
In a July 4, 2021 Facebook post, Lex Scott, the founder of Utah’s Black Lives Matter chapter, wrote:
“When we Black Americans see this flag we know the person flying it is not safe to be around. When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred.”
Ms. Scott subsequently told Fox News:
“Ever since we put up the post, our page has been flooded with hatred from people who fly the flag. And we want to thank those people for proving our point.” When asked how she would respond to people who say the American flag represents all Americans, Scott replied: “I would ask those people if they ever showed outrage when the Ku Klux Klan marched down the street holding that flag, if they ever showed outrage last week when Patriot Front, a White supremacist group, was marching through Philadelphia holding that flag, if they feel outraged that the Three Percenters have co-opted their flag, that the Proud Boys have co-opted their flag. If they have never shown outrage when hate groups use their symbol for hatred, then they need to not come to us – they need to go directly to those groups. When you allow a hate group to fly that flag in the name of hatred, and you say nothing, and you do nothing, you send a message to us that you agree with their messaging. You agree with that hate, and you condone it.”
