Charlotte, NC — Late on Thursday, news outlets were reporting the situation with the National Guard in Washington, DC. Those brave men and women who are willing to drop everything at a moment’s notice and sacrifice their lives for the American people. They found themselves in a situation that should have never happened.
No, they were not fearing rocket attacks in Afghanistan or Iraq. They were not dealing with potential terrorist attacks from Iran.
This time, they were forced out of the United States Capitol and into a concrete parking garage. While in their home country, they were forced into the parking garage to “relax.” That does not seem very relaxing or like a show of appreciation to those who were there.
So why were they even in DC to begin with? They were there to help protect the Inauguration at the request of the elitist Democrats. After the chaos at the Capitol, Democrats have went livid with fear of anyone who may be a conservative. They even took it to the point of saying they were screening the troops in DC to find out if any were potential Trump supporters that could cause issues while they were there.
Is this the kind of respect that these men and women deserve? Absolutely not. Unfortunately, they found themselves in a similar situation that many others have over the past few years.
The Democrats have a habit of exploiting people when they need them, which is exactly what they did here with these National Guard troops. They wanted them for a show of force. They wanted to show that they are in power and control. When they were finished, they simply relegated them to a parking garage.
They did the same thing last year with the coronavirus pandemic and the riots. They exploited Black Lives Matter when they needed them. They exploited them to say that Trump was a racist because they needed them to help push a narrative.
They exploited the coronavirus pandemic to help push for an economic shutdown. They needed the economy to struggle because defeating Trump would be nearly impossible with a booming economy. One week they were about the coronavirus, the next they were about racism and equality.
Now that they have won the election, they are back on the coronavirus and how they need to implement drastic measures to save the country. By drastic measures, they mean spending relentlessly and implementing socialism. Neither of which will address or correct the issue as they claim.
At what point do the voters who continue to support these elitists learn their lesson? At what point do we come together as Americans to remind them that they serve us, not the other way around?
The message that the Left is delivering is anything other than that of unity. It’s been marked by division and destruction in just its first few days.
The true nature of the Democrats is on display. Their idea of unity is exploiting whatever special interest group can help them promote socialism this week. After all, you should never let a crisis go to waste they say.
