Washington D.C. Mayor Takes Ridiculous Action Against Trump Supporters
In a ridiculous move, the mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser has called upon the Department of Defense to activate the National Guard in anticipation of thousands of supporters of President Trump preparing to protest on Wednesday.
The protest is meant to show support for the President and to urge Republican Congressmen to refuse to certify the electoral results.
“According to a U.S. defense official, Mayor Muriel Bowser put in a request on New Year’s Eve to have Guard members on the streets from Jan. 5-7th, to help with the protests,” the Associated Press reported Monday. “The official said the D.C. National Guard members will be used for traffic control and other assistance but they will not be armed or wearing body armor. Congress is meeting this week to certify the Electoral College results, and President Donald Trump has refused to concede while whipping up support for protests.”
“There will be about 115 Guard troops on duty at any one time in the city, said the defense official, who provided details on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations,” the report continued. “The official said Guard members will be used to set up traffic control points around the city and to stand with district police officers at all the city’s Metro stops. Acting Police Chief Robert Contee said Guard troops will also be used for some crowd management.”
In case you’ve forgotten, this is what Washington, D.C. looked like about six months ago.
And this isn’t even the most graphic of the videos that could be shown on this.
But where was the D.C. mayor’s call for the National Guard six months ago when all of that was happening?
There was actual violence and actual vandalism taking place in the streets and she just let it happen. But now, because some Trump supporters want to protest, she is preemptively calling in the National Guard? This is a joke.
It really makes me sick to even live in this country that has fallen so far to allow this corruption to take place.
