DC National Guard to Respond to Pro-Trump Protests This Week

Source: NBC Washington

Members of the D.C. National Guard will respond as supporters of President Donald Trump protest the 2020 election results in downtown D.C. this week.

The D.C. National Guard will assist the Metropolitan Police Department with crowd management and traffic control, MPD’s acting chief, Robert Contee, said at a news conference Monday morning. The department is expecting a crowd larger than at two pro-Trump events in D.C. last year.

Anyone who carries a gun at a protest or within 1,000 feet of a protest will be arrested, in line with D.C. law, the acting police chief said. Police posted signs this weekend in Freedom Plaza, where protests are expected, warning about the law.

3. That's how I feel - relieved

I wasn't sure how the local police and Capitol Police would deal with the MAGAts. Hearing that the DC National Guard is being deployed for crowd control and traffic makes me hope that these crazies might not be allowed to trash the city.

4. Not sure if you are being facetious but I think it could get ugly.

This is just what that orange monster wants.

6. Sorry, it was kind of a flip remark, but I do think it's a possibility.

Because contrary to the right wingers, propaganda more guns in the hands of the mob does not make you safer. The more guns there are, the more likely somebody is to get shot.

7. Ha, it won't

Just the same dopey crew of racist snowflakes having their group therapy session.

As long as normal people stay away, they can just cry themselves to sleep.

9. Spineless cult followers

Deep down most of Trump cult followers are spineless and will capitulate once they are ordered to do so.

8. My Local MAGATS and Proud little boys have all of a sudden turned on police....

For not getting special treatment. They've been tear gassed, arrested...

Should be interesting. Hope no one gets hurt.

13. Is this the same National Guard...

...that gassed and beat the peaceful protesters to clear the way for Cheatolini to cross the park and hold up a bible? If so, I'm guessing they will be out there to start trouble and overwhelm the DC police, so Der Fuhrer can proclaim Marshall Law and declare himself dictator for life.
