Time for DC police to enact “Stand Your Ground” for a few days.

Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin has been rushed to the hospital, reportedly suffering from uncontrollable spontaneous orgasms.

Are the DHS thugs in place to protect Federal property or are they only used for BLM protests?

It is very important that counter-protestors

do not go there under any circumstances.

Let these anti-government hate groups fight with the police and military.

At the end of the day, it will be clear how foolish and, while scary, ineffective these whiners are.

Please, tell everyone you know to not go to DC today or this week.

Let the police and military do their jobs without making things worse.
