Democrats Stoke Fears That National Guard Might “Do Something” To Stop Biden
(Tea Party 247) â The Democrats are enjoying clutching their pearls over the National Guard presence in Washington, D.C. ahead of the strangest Inauguration Day in U.S. history, and now theyâre working up their own conspiracy theories to boot.
25,000 National Guard troops have been deployed to the nationâs capital for the event where military zones have been established and bridges into the city closed ahead of the event.
On Monday, a fire in a homeless camp interrupted an inauguration rehearsal.
House Democrat Rep. Steven Cohen (D-TN), apparently not content with an overly secure Inauguration Day in response to the January 6th attack on Capitol Hill, is casting doubt on the trustworthiness of the National Guard troops themselves.
One wonders who, exactly, he expects to keep all the innocent Democrats safe from the big, scary Trump supporters if not National Guard troops.
âThe Guard is 90-some-odd percent, I believe, male. Only about 20% of white males voted for Biden,â Cohen declared to a very sympathetic CNN. âYou gotta figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative, and I see that on my social media â¦ theyâre probably not more than 25% of the people that are there protecting us who voted for Biden.
âThe other 75% are in the class that would be the large class of folks who might want to do something,â he charged. âAnd there were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution and to protect and defend who didnât do it who were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.â
Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh described this smearing of the reputation of members of the National Guard or the Secret Service as âsick,â which it most certainly is.
âSo the transition team has asked commanders of the National Guard to take whatever steps they deem necessary to neuter these members of the National Guard. The request supposedly was refused, which ended up fueling the fear of an actual attack. Supposedly the fears of the transition team started with Bidenâs Secret Service detail,â he explained.
âSo theyâre wanting people to believe that the Secret Service detail is still under the command of Trump, that theyâre still loyal to Trump, and that theyâre going to do whatever theyâre gonna do here against Plugs. This is sick! This is not what the Secret Service does. The Secret Service does not get compromised like this. The very idea that the Democrat Party wants you to think this kind of thing is possible is being one for one reason.â
He accused the Democrats of employing a strategy to give the American public the impression that theyâll have to give up some of their freedoms as âdrastic actionâ is taken.
Weâve already gotten used to this amid the pandemic.
âI donât quite know how to characterize this. Itâs not enough to call whatâs happening a shame. But the steps to which the Democrats are willing to go in order here to control as much of the thinking and movement in this country as so they can is just beyond the pale. But they are dead serious about it,â Limbaugh explained.
Since the January 6th attack on the Capitol Building, many have been raising concerns about protesters trying to disrupt the Inauguration Day proceedings.
Additional security fencing has been installed as well as concertina and other measures.
Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has urged Americans to stay home and join the inauguration virtually.
Of course, before January 6th, events for the occasion were already being canceled due to the pandemic, supposedly.
Itâs almost as if theyâve never wanted anyone to see how many people would freely show up to a Joe Biden Inauguration.
After all, no one was clutching their pearls over the Trump inauguration in 2017.
Cohen was, however, forced to concede that he had seen no evidence of an âinsider attack,â something that has been alleged by a hysterical media complex who also has no evidence.

âThis is a great example of how norms are just being swept aside and replaced by insanity thatâs made to look like normalcy. Itâs just beyond the pale, what is being done,â Limbaugh said of Cohenâs wild claims.
Politico reported that officials expressed concerns about an âinsider threatâ and had been âvettingâ the troops already in D.C.
Cohen was widely slammed on Twitter, as well he ought to have been.
Questioning the loyalty of men in women in uniform who swore and oath to support and defend the constitution with nothing more than anecdotal statistics of who voted for whom by demographic is irresponsibility stupid https://t.co/i2b0JKhXRZ

First, this is just a reckless and stupid accusation. Second, Cohen doesn't seem to realize that people don't pledge to serve for other people (and shouldn't), they pledge to serve country. https://t.co/aXaAlStv1x
