IT’S LIKE THEY WANT A BANANA REPUBLIC:

But that’s just because they do.

UPDATE: Tucker Carlson: The Democratic Party is using the military of the United States as a political weapon.

For comparison, Lyndon Johnson sent a total of 13,600 federal troops and D.C. Army National Guardsmen to quell the race riots in Washington that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Those riots injured hundreds of people and killed at least 13. In 1864, as the Civil War raged on the other side of the Potomac and Americans died every day in large numbers on the battlefield, there were fewer federal troops protecting Washington, D.C., than there are right now.

But according to our leaders, the so-called “insurrection” of Jan. 6 was much worse than any of that. So in response, they have assembled the largest military presence in Washington in all of American history during peacetime.

And they’ve made clear that they don’t fully trust those troops. Which is both crazy and destructive for the nation.
