The Military rejects Mike Flynn’s name for Trump to declare martial regulation and overthrow the election
After Mike Flynn urged Trump to declare martial law and overthrow the election, the army leadership flatly rejected the idea.
The army’s response to Flynn’s fascist idea was to reject it:
Only in: @SecArmy Ryan McCarthy and @ArmyChiefStaff General McConville respond to former General Flynn’s remarks calling on Trump to declare martial law in order to discard election results: “The US military has no role in determining the Result of an American election. ”

The military has made it very clear that they will not participate in Trump’s final attempts to destroy democracy in order to stay in power.
Flynn’s idea that Trump should overturn the election shows that Trump and his staff have always been anti-democratic. They do not respect democracy and do not see it as their job to maintain and promote democratic institutions in the United States.
There will be no declaration of martial law. Trump will not overturn the election. Trump will not get any help from the military to stay in power.
The soon-to-be former president was the face of the fascist threat, but he turned the Republican Party into an anti-democratic movement for autocracy.
Donald Trump lost, but the authoritarian impulse behind Trumpism has yet to be defeated for democracy in the United States to be saved.
