Former Marines are livid that Joe Biden decided to use active Marines as props during his divisive speech in Philadelphia last week.
Concerned Veterans for America deputy director and U.S. Marine Corps veteran John Byrnes blew Biden up this weekend.
Byrnes accused Biden of eroding trust in our military by using the Marines in the backdrop of his speech.
The speech by Biden looked like something we have seen throughout history when dictators make speeches.
The irony was that with this ominous backdrop, Biden accused MAGA Republicans of being fascists.
Byrnes stated that "men and women in uniform serve the country, not a party" and "take a solemn oath that should not be taken lightly or taken advantage of."
"When elected officials use our troops as props in political and partisan messaging, it undermines the nonpartisan nature of our military and erodes trust in the institution."
The White House continues to defend the speech as being non-political.
It stated, "President gave an important speech last night about our democracy and our values, values that our men and women in uniform fight every day to protect."
"The presence of Marines at the speech was intended to demonstrate the deep and abiding respect the President has for their service to these ideals and the unique role our independent military plays in defending our democracy, no matter which party is in power."
The backdrop was so bad, multiple prominent members of the liberal media also called out Biden for the speech.
Mike Chamberlain, the director of government watchdog Protect the Public's Trust, added, "President may be exempt from most provisions of the Hatch Act, but members of the military are prohibited from participating in partisan political activity while on duty or in uniform.
"In addition to potential violations by their superiors for coercing their participation in this event, the administration may be exposing these service personnel to possible allegations of misconduct for improperly engaging in political activity.
"While the administration often offers criticisms of its predecessors for norm-breaking activities, this represents another example of them copying and pasting the same behavior."
I am confident that any momentum Biden gained in August will be halted due to that speech.
The only people I can imagine that approved of it were the far-left Kool-Aid drinks that see no wrong in anything Biden has done.
