They can’t silence Stuart Scheller.
After posting a video criticizing President Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal, Stuart Scheller was thrown in the brig and ultimately discharged from the Marines. But that hasn’t soured him on his country —in fact, he may run for office.
“I’ll probably jump into a race in ’24,” former Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller told the “John Solomon Reports” podcast. He said he presently lacks “the physical, mental, spiritual endurance right now to jump into a race.”
According to the Daily Wire, since his discharge, “Scheller has recruited approximately 25 candidates for office as part of a coalition called Vote4Vets.org. The endorsed candidates — 90% of whom he estimates are veterans — promise to press for greater accountability of military leaders, and for themselves once in office.”
“I am a conservative, but I think we need leaders and not politicians,” he says. While Scheller said he has “a lot of respect for the office of the president,” he believes “Biden has a lot of problems.” The worst is that “he’s not, in my opinion, very good” as a president or commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces.”
“The truth is it was always apolitical for me,” he said. “I never mentioned Biden’s name once … because I had a lot of respect for the office of the president.”
