Gosar claimed that National Guard assistance at the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack was “delayed” by Milley, the outgoing chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Gosar tapped into his homophobia as he criticized Milley over the National Guard slowdown, which a House committee previously concluded was not intentional.
“Even after approval was given, General Milley, the homosexual-promoting-BLM-activist Chairman of the military joint chiefs, delayed,” Gosar wrote on Sunday.
“We now know that the deviant Milley was coordinating with Nancy Pelosi to hurt President Trump, and treasonously working behind Trump’s back. In a better society, quislings like the strange sodomy-promoting General Milley would be hung.”
Gosar, no stranger to promoting violence and racism, seemed to up the anti-LGBTQ rhetoric in reaction to an Atlantic report that Trump once asked Milley if he was “soft” on transgender soldiers. Milley reportedly replied: “I’m not soft on transgender or hard on transgender. I’m about standards in the U.S. military, about who is qualified to serve in the U.S. military. I don’t care who you sleep with or what you are.”
Trump has accused Milley of treason for reportedly assuring China that the U.S. would not initiate a nuclear attack in the last days of the Trump administration, and recently suggested that the general should be executed.
