In an opinion piece appearing exclusively at the Western Journal on Monday, General Michael Flynn warned, “There is now a small group of passionate people working hard to destroy our American way of life. Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law … [is] under the gun.… These passionate two percent appear to be winning.”
Since being exonerated by the Justice Department, which dismissed its case against him following revelations that he was set up by the FBI in 2017, he has found his voice. And it is a voice of warning:
We have to understand there are two opposing forces: One is the “children of light” and the other is the “children of darkness.”…
For most Americans these forces [of darkness] appear to be strong. I sense they are desperate. I also sense that only a slight push on our part is all that is required to defeat these forces.
Prayers help and prayers matter, but action is also a remedy.… Seek the truth, fight for it.… Don’t trust the fake news or false prophets; trust your instincts and your common sense.
According to Flynn, there are dark powers behind the current protests using racial discord as a tool to destroy the Republic:
I believe the attacks … are part of a well-orchestrated and well-funded effort that uses racism as its sword … to leverage and legitimize violence and crime….
The dark forces’ weapons forged against us serve one purpose: to promote radical social change through power and control.… The creation of a socialist society [is] their ultimate goal.
Flynn is optimistic that if enough awaken to the danger those dark forces can be exposed and defeated, but he gives a warning:
We must, however, be deliberate about our optimism.… We must be tenacious in the ultimate end we wish to gain … to remain an unwavering constitutional republic based on [our] Judeo-Christian values and principles….
We must … follow the Constitution.
To survive, citizens must act, says the former battlefield general: “In war, as in life, most failure comes from inaction. We face a pivotal moment that can change the course of history of our nation. Now is the time to act.”
Flynn has found his voice despite the three years of oppression at the hands of those “dark forces” who sought to destroy him, his reputation, and the president who appointed him as national security advisor.
When writing earlier this month to Scott Kesterson, the owner of Xpedition Café, a small production company that produces documentary films and podcasts, Flynn noted: “We will only keep America if we dedicate ourselves to freedom’s victory over the socialist monster by our good citizens accepting greater responsibility. I am not done.”
Indeed, it appears that Flynn is just getting started. On June 11, he penned another op-ed exclusively for the Western Journal. He picked that outlet deliberately because of its enormous outreach. Founded by Floyd Brown in 2008, the site has grown from receiving just 1,000 page views a day in 2009 to now more than 36 million readers and followers on Facebook. Traffic now going to Brown’s websites, including the Western Journal, exceed that going to the Wall Street Journal, CBS News, and NPR (National Public Radio), according to Alexa.
In that June 11 op-ed, Flynn wrote: “There are seminal moments in American history that test every fiber of our nation’s soul. We are facing one now.” He concluded:
Tyranny and treachery are in our midst, and although we feel we’ve descended into a hellish state of existence, we must never forget, hell is conquerable….
If our nation is to survive this crucible moment, we need to fall back on the God-given values and ideals that are the very foundation of our constitutional republic. Let us not fear the uncertainty that comes with the unknown; instead accept it and fight through that sense of fear….
As long as we accept God in the lifeblood of our nation, we will be OK. If we don’t, we will face a hellish existence.
I vote we accept God.
