(Tea Party PAC) – Folks in the D.C. area who are living it up, partying and rioting, trashing neighborhoods and businesses, setting stuff on fire, all that good jazz about to receive a special treat for all of their hard work, and boy oh boy are they not going to like it.
The Pentagon has apparently had enough of the chaos and destruction, so they have decided to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division’s Immediate Response Force to the D.C. area to help bring some order to all of the chaos caused by these “peaceful protesters.”
This is the same group of troops that were deployed earlier in the year to drop the hammer on violent Iran-backed protests in the country of Iraq.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
A source also told Breitbart News that the 16th Military Police Brigade from Fort Bragg was also headed to D.C.
The deployments to D.C. comes after rioters looted stores, defaced national monuments, and burned a historic church a block from the White House.
Trump during a press conference on Monday announced he was dispatching military units in response to the riots.
“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people. I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation, and that is exactly what I will do,” he said.
“As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily-armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and the wanton destruction of property,” he added.
The president had a chat with governors earlier in the day where he essentially, to paraphrase, encouraged them to grow a spine and take serious action to take the streets back from rioters. Of course, governors are afraid to do that sort of thing for several different reasons. One, they are afraid of causing the situation to escalate. Two, they are afraid of the negative ramifications of such action, which could destroy their attempts at being reelected. Third, they simply lack courage to make hard choices.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), an Army veteran who is close to the Trump administration, said Monday morning that “anarchy, rioting, and looting needs to end tonight,” and suggested sending active duty forces.
He added: “And, if necessary, the 10th Mountain, 82nd Airborne, 1st Cav, 3rd Infantry — whatever it takes to restore order. No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.”

Many attempts have been made to quell this chaos as peacefully as possible, but the individuals who are egging this whole thing on are not interested in peace. They are interested in venting their wickedness and being allowed to burn the city to ashes, meanwhile stuffing their pockets and shopping carts with free goods.
It’s not about justice for George Floyd. Individuals who are interested in that are protesting peacefully, not lighting fires and using his death as justification for theft and wanton destruction.
We need to get law and order back, and that means taking hard steps to crack down on looters. If that means military forces, so be it. These folks have brought this all down on themselves.
