Walls don’t work… unless you are members of Congress.
This week, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) is having a panic attack over a rally that is being held this weekend.
While the threat level for “Justice for J6” is unknown, Pelosi and company are taking no chances, so a temporary barrier fence will be erected around the Capitol this weekend.
Justice for J6
The group is holding a rally to protest the treatment of those arrested related to the January 6 riot at the Capitol.
While I have seen the chatter about the group, I have not yet seen estimates as to the expected size or threat of the group.
What we do know is that Pelosi was holding meetings with party leaders to decide security measures.
Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger had met with leadership and both chamber sergeants-at-arms prior to the announcement.
After the meeting, Chief Manger stated, “The fence will go up a day or two before, and if everything goes well it will come down very soon after.”
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) added, “They seemed very, very well prepared — much better prepared than before Jan. 6. I think they’re ready for whatever might happen.”
Everyone’s ears were already up after a California man was arrested earlier in the week with white supremacist symbols on his vehicle and in possession of knives, including a machete and bayonet.
His truck was parked near the DNC headquarters when officers noticed the vehicle and they took him into custody early Monday.
For the sake of conservatives and the current momentum of both the news cycle and upcoming elections, let’s just hope nothing awful happens this weekend.
If it does, it will enable Democrats to flip the cycle and go back on the attack when they have been on the retreat for weeks now.
