National Guard Activated As Washington D.C. Prepares For Violent Pro-Trump Protests January 4, 2021

Trump-Loving Fascists Plan Violent Protests In Washington D.C. – The National Guard is being called out to protect property and lives as authorities brace for violence ahead of planned pro-Trump protests in the nation’s capital this week.

Associated Press reports:

Bracing for possible violence, the nation’s capital has mobilized the National Guard ahead of planned protests by President Donald Trump’s supporters in connection with the congressional vote expected Wednesday to affirm Joe Biden’s election victory.

USA Today reports:

Protests planned for Washington, D.C., this week are likely to attract large numbers of President Donald Trump’s supporters, including conspiracy theorists, militia groups and members of the extremist group the Proud Boys, raising concerns of violent confrontations.

… Far-right groups from around the country have vowed to descend on the capital to protest the vote and attempt to pressure lawmakers into voting against certifying the results, an outcome that even the leaders of the effort admit is extraordinarily unlikely to happen.

In a statement issued via Twitter, Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser asked citizens not to engage with the dangerous, far-right, Trump-loving fascists:

I am asking Washingtonians and those who live in the region to stay out of the downtown area on Tuesday and Wednesday and not to engage with demonstrators who come to our city seeking confrontation, and we will do what we must to ensure all who attend remain peaceful.

Commenting on the preparations, Acting Police Chief Robert Contee said he has reason to believe some of the protesters will be armed:

We have received some information that there are individuals intent on bringing firearms into our city. That just will not be tolerated.

In addition, D.C. police are posting notices prohibiting guns downtown ahead of the pro-Trump protests:

Bottom line: Expecting violence from Trump-loving fascists, the National Guard is being called out to protect property and lives as authorities brace for violence ahead of planned pro-Trump protests in the nation’s capital this week.
