The Capitol Police do not appear ready to make the same mistake twice.
With the Justice for J6 rally stirring up concern, the National Guard has been called up to help with any possible problems during the rally.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced that 100 Guardsmen would be in the area to support Capitol Police and other security efforts on Saturday.
Activate the Troops
The rally itself, per the organizers, is not meant to support or call out any candidate.
Instead, the rally wants to concentrate on the treatment of those arrested as a result of the January 6 rally that turned into a riot at the Capitol.
Some 600 people have been arrested for the role they played on that day.
Trump and his supporters have distanced themselves from the rally.
The rally is being organized by a former Trump staffer who worked on his campaign’s digital side, which makes little sense to me.
If he truly was a Trump supporter, one would think he would stay away from such a controversial subject and the possibility of having another riot near the Capitol.
With the current news cycle, why even risk something that Democrats can use to flip the horrific news cycle that Joe Biden is having right now.
And, make no mistake about it, if a single punch is thrown or a window is broken, there will be far more outrage over that than the fact Biden left Americans behind in Afghanistan or disintegrated 10 civilians with a drone strike.
Trump himself has criticized the event, stating, “On Saturday, that’s a setup.
“If people don’t show up, they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’
“And if people do show up, they’ll be harassed.”
He is 100 percent correct… this rally should never have been organized in the first place.
As I stated the other day, there is simply too much momentum at stake right now to risk it over a few hundred people getting out of control or a group like ANTIFA or BLM showing up and starting an all-out brawl on the streets of DC.
