This is DC in 1971 when they arrested 13,000 Americans, maybe things will escalate.

Big difference. The "protesters" were already proven to be a lot of violent slime. I lived through the sixties and watched the Chicago riots. The city had reason to fear.

That isn’t true at all, you made that up, the protesters weren’t violent.

The relevant point here is the biggest arrest in American history, 13,000, the massive presence of full combat troops, and the internment in camps for days, without charges and in some cases without food and bedding.

yes, I remember too.

Remember the chicago riots during the “den” convention? I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The demonstrators were throwing fecal waste, urine, molotov cocktails, and anything else they could think of, while calling the police “pigs”.
