Although the Democrats claim they got a strong mandate from the people in November’s election, they are using a mighty show of military power to “secure” Joe Biden’s inauguration. But the orders to the military actually signal something much more sinister, according to Tucker Carlson.
Carlson said the military is clearly not needed but is instead intended to send a chilling message to the nation:
It’s truly a national force. The Guardsmen you see in Washington have come from every state in the Union, as well as from Puerto Rico. And the question is, why is that? There’s no practical or operational justification for it. For decades, Washington, D.C. has the highest per capita law enforcement presence in the country and one of the highest in the world. So there was no need to fly in troops from Alaska to keep the city safe.
But keeping the city safe was hardly the point of the exercise. The murder rate in the District of Columbia has risen with terrifying speed over the last six months: men, women and children shot to death in the streets. But no one in charge seems to care about that or even notice their deaths.
So no matter what they are telling you, those 26,000 Federal troops are not there for your safety. Instead, unmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power: “We’re in charge now.” We run this nation from Honolulu to our colony in the Caribbean, and everything in between very much, including where you and your family live. Do not question us. Men with guns enforce our decrees, we control the Pentagon.
Carlson explained how it is the largest gathering of military personnel during peacetime in history. All to ostensibly protect a politician who claims he was elected by a mandate from the people.
These are the shenanigans one might expect by the despot in North Korea or the tyrant in Russia, but this is the United States of America gathering its troops during peacetime.
