Right now, Washington DC is being militarized in ways it has never been. Approximately 20,000 National Guard troops are stationed there even though there is not going to be an inaugural event open to the public or any parades. Rings of steel surround the Capitol and concrete blocks have been set up everywhere.
At first they said Biden would have a small inauguration because of Covid. For our own good, you know. More likely for Biden’s good since any crowd size would be compared to the 2017 Trump inauguration or that of Obama in 2009. Biden would not come off well with his tiny crowd size vs/ the huge Trump turnout.
Since the riot of January 6, that excuse appears to have been thrown out the window.
Instead, government officials and media people are comparing what happened at the riot January 6 to 9/11 even though it doesn’t match in any way with deaths or destruction. Was anything but a window even destroyed Jan. 6?
This allows them to promote two ideas.
1. Trump supporters are crazed and demented. They will resort to violence and assassinations if given the chance. Democrats via the media are successfully hiding the fact that the people who did the violence were Antifa and other groups bent on subverting and hijacking the rally. They weren’t the MAGA people who were still listening to President Trump deliver his speech miles away. It will be used as an attack on freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. Watch the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security and the National Intelligence Program to be given funds and abilities for keeping track of citizens. Never let a crisis go to waste, as they like to say.
It’s just another version of the lockdown we had for almost the past year.
2. It’s a blatant display of might aimed at citizens. Disagree with us or think differently than we do and here’s what you’ll face. It’s exactly what China does to its citizens or Russia. One wag asked if a military inauguration comes free with every Dominion election.
If anything like this had happened in 2017, liberals would have screamed. Madonna threatened to burn down the White House. Rioters burned businesses and attacked attendees at inaugural night parties. It went on all weekend. Remember the pussy hats? Yet our side allowed it because we believe in freedom of speech and assembly.
2021 will mark a new era and not one for true freedom lovers if the heart of our country, DC, shows.
