Now, THIS is disgusting. But more than that, it demonstrates the sorry state of the leadership in today’s “woke” military.
A retired three-star general has been suspended for replying on Twitter to a Jill Biden tweet regarding abortion.
Retired Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky is a former top spokesman for the Army and formerly in charge of the Army’s 101st Airborne Division. For his gallantry in Iraq, he was awarded the Silver Star – the third-highest military decoration for valor in combat.
Although he was retired, Volesky was working as a “highly qualified expert” and “senior mentor” to active-duty officers. Volesky’s position was in a civilian role and not as an active member of the military.
On June 24, the first lady reacted to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade by writing on Twitter: “For nearly 50 years, women have had the right to make our own decisions about our bodies. Today, that right was stolen from us. And while we may be devastated by this injustice, we will not be silent. We will not sit back as the progress we have already won slips away.”
Volesky sarcastically replied to Biden’s tweet: “Glad to see you finally know what a woman is.”
The tweet was a reference to Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson not being able to provide a definition of a woman during her nomination hearing in March because, as she said, she is “not a biologist.”
And THIS fatuous woman is the newest member of the Supreme Court of the United States? Great! A new “woke” justice for the Supreme Court. I wonder what pronoun SHE prefers.
Liberals and socialist Democrats support the idea that biological male transgender individuals can be women and therefore have great difficulty answering the question: “What is a woman?” I assume that means this idiotic mob also believes, against every established biological and scientific standard, that men can give birth even if they don’t possess a uterus. I dare them to prove it! Go ahead, let me see a man without a uterus or analogous birth canal bring a baby to term and give birth!
Now, back to Gen. Volesky.
After the gnomes who monitor Jill Biden’s Twitter account reported the impertinent tweet to the Pentagon, Gen. Volesky deleted his comment. Of course, THAT apparently wasn’t enough for Dr. Jill. After all, how dare a decorated war hero disparage anything the First Lady tweets?
So, Gen. Volesky was suspended by Lt. Gen. Theodore Martin, commander of the Combined Arms Center and the three-star general will remain under suspension while the Pentagon launches an “inquiry.”
An “inquiry?” Doesn’t Gen. Martin mean a partisan inquisition like the January 6th hearings in which those accused are deemed guilty even before an investigation begins?
So this is where we are as a nation. A man who won the Silver Star for gallantry while serving his country on the battlefield is punished for exercising his right to free speech–and doing so as a civilian!
And Democrats insist they are not attacking and trying to destroy the First Amendment?
I would say “God Help Us,” but God has been impeached and abolished by Joe Biden and the secular socialists who dominate the Democrat Party.
Meanwhile, Gen. Volesky is at the mercy of a tyrannical administration that no longer believes in an American’s right to speak freely.
Instead, it prefers to punish the innocent such as those Border Patrol agents on horseback who were cleared of bogus charges that they used horse reins to beat Haitian migrants illegally crossing the Rio Grande into the United States.
Never mind that those Border Patrol Agents were found by an investigation to be not guilty of “strapping black people” as Joe Biden insisted before he even knew the facts. They need to be punished anyway so a demented and bumbling Joe Biden can save face for the obtuse comments he made immediately after the incident.
I suspect a similar fate awaits Gen. Volesky.
After all, he dared to disagree with Dr. Jill, the Biden crime family’s supreme tsarina, and oligarch.

Every time I see a reference to “Dr. Jill,” I’m reminded that, until she received her advanced degree (technically, I don’t think it’s even a doctorate), the AP Stylebook standards dictated that the title of ‘Dr.’ should be reserved “for an individual who holds a doctor of dental surgery, medicine, optometry, osteopathic medicine, podiatric medicine, or veterinary medicine.” This long-established standard disappeared down the Memory Hole soon after Mrs. Brandon was awarded an advanced degree. Not only does the left want to control what we say, they want to control the use of the language.
Her “doctorate” is in education, which is not nearly as rigorous as other PhD-granting disciplines. Controlling the language and the conversation is clearly a goal on the left. For my part, I will NEVER use pronouns such as they, them, etc. in lieu of “him, he, her, and she” when it is obvious those are the correct pronouns that fit the gender of the person in front of me. This transgender nonsense is going way too far when you consider it refers to just 1 percent of the population.
I recently read a news report of a confrontational encounter between police and a Hollywood. pronoun queen who insisted his pronouns were “they, them, and their.” I had to give up trying to read the article because it was written in a way that rendered it impossible to distinguish between what the tranny did and what the police did. It was all about “they” doing something to “them.” If distrust doesn’t kill journalism first, the pronoun police will knock it off.
How true! 👍
