Democratic Mayor of Washington wants National Guard to manage Trump Rally, gets reminded that it´s the leftists and Democrat supporters who usually turn to violence

By A.S.

Mayor of U.S. capital Washington DC democrat Muriel Bowser has requested National Guard troops to guard the streets as Trump supporters plan to hold a Trump rally as a protest to the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory. This was met with criticism as many people reminded her that it is not Trump supporters who loot and burn, but the BLM and Antifa activists who are in fact closer to the Democratic Party.

Bowser´s office told the media that she had asked for 340 unarmed troops of the National Guard to help police and firefighters in managing the demonstrations against Biden´s certification of election victory. She also advised the residents to stay out of downtown and avoid engaging with protestors who “come to our city seeking confrontation”, forgetting that the ones who are usually seeking violent confrontation are in fact the leftists and that Trump rallies are peaceful until leftist counter-protesters and provocateurs turn up.

On the other hand, the democratic black mayor made no such call for military help when Black Lives Matter violent protestors were setting fires and vandalizing national monuments in 2020. In fact, she called on Trump to withdraw National Guard and other federal forces who have been sent to manage the leftist riots at that time. The mayor even renamed a street in front of the White House “Black Lives Matter Plaza”.

After her request to bring in the National Guard she was reminded by many Trump supporters that it is not them who cause violence. One of them, a Republican lawyer Mike Davis said that Trump supporters weren´t the ones rioting and looting big-screen TVs, or tearing down the statues. “Those were BLM, Antifa, and other Joe Biden supporters”, he added.
