Ignoring history and facts is divisive.
What Americans are seeing right now in one city after another — all of them run for decades by Democrats — is a rerun of what happened in Washington, D.C., in April 1968.

Yes. Gen. James Mattis served his country well and with honor. He is, without doubt, an American patriot.

But that doesn’t give him a pass from his recent anti-Trump diatribe in the Atlantic. This screed was filled with bad history and an apparent willful ignorance of exactly what President Trump has been saying and doing. It is a perfect example of a Washington Establishment figure completely and totally out of touch with the reality of history and facts.

Among the gems:

We must reject any thinking of our cities as a “battlespace” that our uniformed military is called upon to “dominate.” At home, we should use our military only when requested to do so, on very rare occasions, by state governors. Militarizing our response, as we witnessed in Washington, D.C., sets up a conflict — a false conflict — between the military and civilian society. It erodes the moral ground that ensures a trusted bond between men and women in uniform and the society they are sworn to protect, and of which they themselves are a part. Keeping public order rests with civilian state and local leaders who best understand their communities and are answerable to them.

With all due respect, General? Here’s a historical reality check.

The Washington Post did a look back at the 1968 riot in Washington, D.C., that erupted after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A riot that killed 13 people and damaged 900 businesses, many of them minority-owned businesses.
