CA Nat'l Guard Generals fired -preparing to use F-15s to buzz protesters

Using jet fighters to buzz protesters is really kinda Putin-style stuff
But it's your National Guard!

[ktla.com]
Turmoil has gripped the leadership ranks of the California National Guard, with the firing of the general who commanded its air branch, the suspension of a second key general, and new limits placed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on the organization’s use of fighter jets for civilian missions.

Newsom’s office and the head of the Guard, Maj. Gen. David S. Baldwin, refused to provide details on the reasons behind the recent leadership changes other than a statement from the Guard saying that the organization “is committed to facilitating a positive working environment for all of its members, regardless of gender and ethnicity.”

The air branch’s former commander, who was forced out two weeks ago, told The Times he did nothing wrong and said Baldwin had “lost touch with reality.”

The abrupt actions against the two generals mark the second major shake-up in California’s Military Department in as many years. And they were announced on the heels of a Times report that Guard members were concerned that their leaders had readied an F-15C fighter jet last year for a possible mission in which the aircraft would fly low over civilian protesters to frighten and disperse them.

When the Navy has the Blue Angels buzz civilians, they call it recruitment.

Almost invariably when people who are denied authority to get heavy handed with force start talking about other people being ‘out of touch with reality’, you’re going to find some spicy reading in their social media and browser history. I wonder if Q or jeezus has taken his wheel? eye rolling smiley

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Sounds like the same zealot, wackadoo generals who see our military as the Second Crusaders.
