A matter of timing - Washington D. C.

| No Comments

This is an example of progressive rhetoric - from The New York Post:

The left’s ‘urge to purge’ response to the Capitol assault
Once again refusing to let a crisis “go to waste,” the left is looking to use the Capitol assault to purge anyone who doesn’t agree with it.

The feds have charged more than 70 people and opened nearly 200 files. That’s all to the good: Rioters should face arrest and even prison time. (That should hold for Antifa rioters too, of course, and for thugs who took advantage of Black Lives Matter protests to become violent, destroying businesses and even lives. Too bad the left doesn’t see that.)

President Trump is also paying for his two months of over-the-top, evidence-free noise about a “stolen election” and his summoning of the rally that led to the attack: He’s the only president to be impeached twice, his political career is likely over, and — perhaps worst for him — he’s banned from Twitter for life.

But progressives want to do far more, crushing all opposition. It’s an unbalanced, cynical and fundamentally anti-democratic drive.

Of course, they are operating in panic mode.  Must suppress dissent. Can't have the truth come out. If they were not running scared, why would they be so insistent.

Now, let's take a look at the 25K National Guard who are there to protect the people during the Biden Inauguration.  How long does it take to call up 25K people.  Especially the National Guard who are living reasonably normal lives and not living in a barracks somewhere doing daily soldier stuff. The "riots" on the 6th were only 11 days ago.  It takes a lot more time to mobilize 25K anything, let alone human beings.  This was set in motion well before the 6th.
