For four years, we heard repeatedly from liberals that Donald Trump was a “fascist.”
But the key feature of President Joe Biden’s administration so far – aside from trillions in dubious spending and a slew of woke, anti-white policies – is troops in the streets.
At least 2,300 National Guard troops remain in the heart of Washington, D.C., patrolling the perimeter of the fenced-in Capitol, and they are not expected to leave until around Memorial Day.
In Minnesota, National Guard troops are on the streets of Minneapolis, as the city – and the nation – awaits the verdict of the Derek Chauvin murder trial in the death of George Floyd.
Nearly 1,200 miles away, the Chauvin trial has also led the governor of Pennsylvania to call up National Guard troops to patrol the streets of Philadelphia in anticipation of violence related to the Chauvin verdict.
In Los Angeles, the sheriff of Los Angeles County and the LA police chief recently said they’re ready to ask for National Guard support once the verdict comes in, should that be necessary.
In Minnesota, people are not exactly on board with the whole “support the troops” mantra.
On Sunday, someone fired potshots at those Guard troops, as well as some cops, in a drive-by shooting. Two soldiers suffered minor injuries from shattered glass. The shooting occurred hours after California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters appeared at an anti-police brutality rally in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. That was the site where another black man, Daunte Wright, was shot recently after an encounter with police.
In her comments, according to Fox News, Waters said, “We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
Dispensing with the rule of law and respect for the process, Waters called for Chauvin to be convicted of murder. And if he’s not, she said, “We cannot go away.”
Meanwhile, in St. Paul, Minnesota, labor union representatives demanded that the National Guard not use their union hall headquarters as a staging area to prepare for potential unrest – and then forced the troops to withdraw.
According to local media, as the troops pulled out, some of the union members yelled, “Don’t come back!”, “Who’s house? Our house!” and “Na-na-na-na, goodbye!”
Troops in our streets seems to be coming full-time, whether we want it or not.
