Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said the country is in the midst of a “battle of Good vs. Evil” and Americans must “refuse to go to the funeral of our own independence” amid President Trump’s legal efforts concerning the election.
“The battle we are engaged in cannot be fought with only human weapons: It requires the intervention of God because in a war against the forces of evil, only the Lord can obtain the victory,” Flynn wrote in an op-ed published Thursday.
“And as American citizens, we must refuse to go to the funeral of our own independence,” he continued. “We the people are proud to proclaim that the United States of America is ‘One Nation under God.’”
Flynn, who served as a national security adviser under the Trump administration, was recently pardoned by the president after he previously pleaded guilty to charges of lying to the FBI. He has been a staunch supporter of Trump and his legal efforts into claims of election fraud.
“We do not want a world governed by tyrants whom no one has elected and who want to have power in order to destroy us,” Flynn continued in his op-ed.
“We understand what their plan is: to eliminate dissent, subdue any criticism and outlaw those who do not submit unconditionally to the dictatorship of the ‘new world order.’”
Flynn also attended the “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, when thousands gathered in support of Trump and his legal efforts.
“Our Constitution is about individual liberties … not collective liberties that only these people in Washington, D.C., understand,” Flynn told the crowd.

“If today we do not obtain justice from our elected officials, if the United States of America does not know how to choose between defending the law and legitimizing a coup against its citizens, our nation will abdicate its duties toward Americans and its international role,” he added in the op-ed.
“Pray now that when the light shines in the coming days, it reveals the truth along with a new era of American patriotism,” he concluded.
