Retired General to Trump Supporters in the Military: ‘Stop Listening to the Pillow Guy and Get Educated’
And the Left thinks Trump is nuts.
Retired Gen. Steven M. Anderson waxed poetic during an appearance on CNN on Saturday, blasting Trump supporters in the U.S. military as “a threat from within.” It gets far crazier — read on.
During a segment with CNN’s Pamela Brown about 2024, Anderson blasted Donald Trump supporters in the military. He advised that they stop listening to MyPillow founder and C.E.O. Mike Lindell about the results of the 2020 presidential election. As transcribed by Mediaite:
There’s a threat within. [There is: the rabid left who is hellbent to destroy America as we know it] We’ve got some people that just haven’t been educated. [There it is, again: leftist elitist condescension.]
They haven’t been found out, and they’ve grown in power, through perhaps inaction on the parts of some of our key leaders. [Delusional, much?]
What we can do now, identify those people, get them out of our ranks, and train the rest of the force on civics 101, about how our country is supposed to work, how elections work.[Cool. We can call it “The Great Purge or the Great Terror 2.0.”]
Stop listening to the pillow guy and start learning about our country and how it’s actually supposed to run.
While I may not agree with everything Lindell says, that is beside the point; there is much that he has said that warrants taking a look at. The salient point here is Stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome remains alive and well on the Left and is no doubt worsening as all signs point to a Trump candidacy in 2024.
Brown threw big, fat softballs down the middle of the plate for Anderson, including this ridiculous gem:
Really quickly, just walk us through your concern about this partisan divide and how it could impact the chain of command, and why that is so concerning to you in terms of preventing another coup attempt potentially in 2024. [Another coup attempt? When was the first one?]
Partisan divide? Caused by whom? Biden got about the business of further dividing America on Day One of his occupation of the White House, signing executive order after executive order shoved in front of him by his handlers — and he hasn’t stopped since.
Anderson continued to make a fool out of himself:
You know, we swore an oath to the Constitution. That’s how our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines need to act.
[Can Anderson point to once incident of significance in which members of American servicemembers failed to support the U.S. Constitution? Of course not.]
And you know we’re concerned that there’s so much activity within the military that shows that people are ignorant of what our Constitution is really all about, [Hell, Anderson sounds like Biden talking about Black people] and they have responded to people like Trump, and when he tells them to jump, they’re probably willing to do that.
There is no question that Trump supporters are the most loyal in modern history. That is not debatable. The question is, why? Perhaps because Trump dared to put America first? To enforce U.S. immigration law? To stand up to China, Kim Jong-un, and the mad mullahs in Tehran? To keep the oil flowing?
If the loons on the Left want to call that “jumping when Trump tells them to jump,” so be it. To paraphrase Hillary, what difference does it make, anyway? The Democrat Party started scheming about getting Trump out of the White House before he was inaugurated, and they didn’t stop for four years.
Um, general? So, you’re worried about a threat to national security within the U.S. military? Perhaps you should peek at the following RedState articles and get back to us.

Notes from the Editor
The General tries to say that Trump followers are not educated; in Leftist speak, we are not willing to be brainwashed.
One can see how the Leftist press continues to push the narrative that Jan 6th was an insurrection; even though both the F.B.I. and Justice Department have debunked this narrative, they will continue to drive this mantra until the truth gets lost over time.
I have said time after time; I had no problem with the protests that day; the way this last election was handled still leaves much to be desired, but I by no means agree with the actions of a few that went and were destructive in the U.S. capital.
The Left is so fearful of Trump; they felt changing election rules outside the constitution was OK. Trump was seen as such a threat to all they held dear that any means were justified to ensure that he did not run again after the first term was done. Now with bumbling Joe in office, they are starting to see that they could be faced with their greatest fear again, Trump coming in during the 2024 election and taking back the White house.
This lie that an insurrection will only grow in volume as we approach the 2022 election and will increase even more leading up to the 2024 election. As I have said before, the truth does not matter to the left, only the perception that they are presenting the truth.
I would say, Mr. General, the problem is we are educated, it is only that we will no longer step into line the way you used to demand your troops do.
