What Would Douglas Say

(part-2, please read part-1 first, it’s worth it)

General Douglas MacArthur, General Mark Milley, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller

After reading the above quote, it should be obvious to the average person, that General Douglas MacArthur would be aghast at what Lt. Col. Scheller did. An American hero like MacArthur would be fine with Scheller rotting the rest of his life away in the brig. Or would he?

I submit to you that such an assumption would be wrong, very wrong and I can prove it. Context is so important and history is where we get it. If you were educated in public schools prior to political correctness, affirmative action, no child left behind, common core, and critical race theory, then you’d know a little about American history. You’d know that General MacArthur was a WWII hero (I believe he was awarded the Medal of Honor) who later commanded American forces in Korea. You’d also know that President Truman fired MacArthur for insubordination after the General publicly denounced Truman’s policies regarding Korea. MacArthur did not resign before going public.

In light of what I just told you, reading the General’s quote changes your opinion of Lt. Col. Scheller doesn’t it? If it doesn’t, it should. It seems that Scheller and MacArthur may have been cut from the same cloth. Both sacrificed for those they serve and those they served with.

Scheller, like General MacArthur, put his career on the line to stand up and fight for what he believes.

It should be pointed out that MacArthur was not arrested and sent to the brig, he was fired.

After reading MacArthur’s quote for a second time with a little truth and factual history for context — who do you think he’d like to see rotting in jail?

General Mark Milley (mouse) gets my vote.

It’s China on line one for the General.
