As you may recall, during the Trump years, anyone who was seen as a whistleblower or someone speaking truth to power, was held up by the media as a hero.
That is no longer allowed under Biden.
Stuart Scheller, the U.S. Marine who spoke out about the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, has been jailed.
Marine Who Spoke Out Against Leaders Jailed Before Hearing
The Marine who had spoken out in August against the Biden administration’s senior military leadership over the unconditional Afghanistan withdrawal was jailed by the Marine Corps on Monday morning for violating a gag order with a social media post over the weekend.
“It is with a heavy heart that we, his parents, are informing you that our son, Lt. Col Stuart Scheller, has been incarcerated by the USMC this morning, Sept. 27, 2021,” his family wrote in a statement. “He was issued a gag order which he broke this weekend by posting on social media.”
The Marines acknowledged that Scheller has been detained before a trial.
“Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. is currently in pre-trial confinement in the Regional Brig for Marine Corps Installations East aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune pending an Article 32 preliminary hearing,” Capt. Sam Stephenson, Training and Education Command spokesman, told Task & Purpose in a statement.
“The time, date, and location of the proceedings have not been determined. Lt. Col. Scheller will be afforded all due process,” the statement continued.
This is ridiculous.

Just think of how differently this situation would be handled under Trump.
