This is DC in 1971 when they arrested 13,000 Americans, maybe things will escalate.
“While protesters listened to music, planned their actions or slept, the authorities quickly moved in 10,000 Federal troops to various locations in the D.C. area, including 4,000 paratroopers from the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division. At one point, so many soldiers and marines were being moved into the area from bases along the East Coast, that troop transports were landing at the rate of one every three minutes at Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Maryland, about 15 miles from the White House. These troops were to back up the 5,100 D.C. Metropolitan Police and 2,000 D.C. National Guard troops that were already on the streets.”
Guess l’il “bammy wee-wee’d at the sight of what he’s wrought...
Seen one lately?
My hubby was there. A Marine fresh back from Nam and they let him keep his weapon but the ammo was locked up in the middle of the circle with hippies spitting and yelling at them. One USMC butt-stroked a protester because he spit in his face. Tensions were high.
Today, Bronco Bama won’t let Marines have a bolt in their rifle but then he doesn’t know what a butt-stroke is.....from a rifle. Hoo Rah!
