Bubbling GOP dissent against Trump may become insurrection if defeat looms
30 June, 1855 - the Santhals, forced into serfdom by the mahajani system imposed by the British East India Company and with their grievances ignored, rose up in an armed insurrection against British rule and demanded autonomy. #OnThisDay
This is a must read. @cjchivers was in the Marines, sent into LA under the Insurrection Act, traveled the world as a war reporter, and is able to masterfully put into words the dangers and inevitable results of militarized police. Long read but worth it.
The president should use the Insurrection Act to deploy active-duty military forces to these cities to support local law enforcement and ensure this violence ends tonight.
We should have zero tolerance for anarchy, rioting, and looting. If necessary, the president should use the Insurrection Act to deploy active-duty military forces to these cities to support our local law enforcement and ensure this violence ends tonight. Not one more night.
NEW: Defense Sec. Esper: "I do not support invoking the Insurrection Act." “The option to use active-duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most ... dire of situations. We are not in one of those situations now.”
anyone who keeps calling this a protest is lying to you. its now an insurrection, and its destroying America.
notice how super-white #iamantifa eggs on the destruction. they knew they could operate within the cover of a "protest," which is how the media still frames it. they also knew they could unleash an insurrection, using the impotence of liberal governance as their mayhem shield.
