[Ed. – The Dems intend to milk this for all it’s worth, even as eyes are likely to shift toward Minneapolis this coming week. There a coalition of 17 activist groups have vowed to protest the trial of the former police officer charged with George Floyd’s death.]
My city has been occupied for more than eight weeks. Major thoroughfares blocked, thousands of armed soldiers, armored vehicles, seven-foot fencing, concertina wire.
What’s it all for? An invading army across the Potomac? Rising far-right militias, ready to strike at any moment?
Nope. It’s because when angry rioters and protesters attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, a Capitol Police force hobbled by its leadership’s poor training regimens, nearly non-existent fitness standards, and fecklessness in the face of crisis were incapable of protecting the building or even shutting the big doors on time.
It’s because those idiot rioters had finally — after months and years of left-wing riots here and across the country — finally given Democratic lawmakers and the corporate media the right-wing riot they always claimed was around the corner.
