The Pentagon is Monitoring Social Media to See If You Are Posting Mean Things about Generals

Whether you are a private citizen or an active-duty member of the military, you might want to watch what you say about the nation’s top generals on social media. That’s because the Pentagon is reportedly monitoring social media sites to determine whether anyone is saying mean things about the failures and hacks running the armed services.

The specific entity monitoring social media sites is the US Army’s Protective Services Bureau (PSB). While the PSB used to watch social media to try to find terrorist chatter about assassinating generals, its role has now been expanded. Instead of watching for jihadists with an axe to grind, the PSB is watching for anyone who says something embarrassing about generals. Not that this is creepy or terrifying.

The Army is not just watching social media to find “negative sentiment” about military generals. It is also actively using technology, according to The Intercept, to pinpoint the geographic locations of people tweeting mean things about generals. You know, in case they need to call in a drone strike because of the words that someone says on the internet.

The good news is that there are far too many of us who are completely infuriated with the way that Joe Biden and the generals have destroyed the US military for them to catch all of us. It would be a shame if every American patriot started saying mean things about generals on social media in unison.

For example, we would NEVER encourage every single person reading this article to post the following question on social media:

Do you believe that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley allegedly has the alleged face of an alleged gay pedophile?

Oh, and Happy Pride Month, everyone!
