Here’s something you already know: Joe Biden doesn’t need 26,000 National Guard troops to protect him from Proud Boys at his inauguration.
He doesn’t need 16,000 troops. Or 10,000 troops. He might not need 6,000.
Four years ago, the Department of Homeland Security mobilized 7,800 National Guardsmen for Donald Trump’s inauguration. At the time there were some 99 left-wing outfits proclaiming they would demonstrate to protest the Trump inauguration.
Those protests turned into riots. The Left looted stores around Washington and made a mess. Few were arrested.
We all know why those troops are there. They aren’t protecting Biden from the Proud Boys. They aren’t protecting him from anyone. They’re there because the people who control Joe Biden — Joe Biden controls nothing, after all — want to send a message to America.
That message is: We’re in control, and we don’t care if you like it or not. Shut up and sit down if you know what’s good for you.
What undergirds it all is contempt. Reeking, rock-solid, blazingly hot contempt for the American people.
A president who fairly wins an election doesn’t act this way. A president who truly means it when he babbles on about unity seeks to placate those who opposed him, to find common ground. Biden drags a collection of Obama retreads still dirty from the FISAgate plot and the Trump–Russia hoax back into his administration.
