Don’t look now but … we told you so!
California Democrats are among the most authoritarian tyrants the United States has ever had to deal with. It’s not just their state government either.
Do you remember when the smarmy Eric Swalwell suggested that the federal government would use nuclear weapons against United States citizens who refused to turn in their means to defend themselves?
Well, it’s not just gun owners that Democrats want to use the United States military against, it’s anyone who dares to protest the draconian lockdowns too. What kind of ‘leader’ even thinks about using the military’s freakin’ fighter jets to threaten citizens?
Keep in mind these are the same people who are oh so livid that some states are making it a crime to riot and block traffic …
If you have not realized what is going on yet, WAKE UP! This is a Marxist take over of our country!
Fox News reports:
‘California National Guard members say a fighter jet was put on standby for a “possible domestic mission” last year, raising concerns that the military could be used to disperse protesters in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report.
Four National Guard sources spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the matter, revealing that commanders were concerned about resistance to stay-at-home orders or chaos due to panic-buying.
According to the sources, an F-15C fighter was put on alert, which raised concerns among Guard members that the jet could be used to “buzz” crowds — a tactic often used in combat zones to disperse the enemy.
The orders were allegedly handed down orally or through text messages rather than formally in writing, which made them highly unusual, the sources told the Times. The Guard members described such a tactic as an “inappropriate” use of military force against U.S. citizens.
“It would have been a completely illegal order that disgraced the military,” one source told the Times. “It could look like we’re threatening civilians.”
“That’s something that would happen in the Soviet Union,” said a second of the Times’ sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared retaliation from superiors. “Our military is used to combat foreign aggressors.”
The California National Guard did not return Fox News’ request for comment.’
Right now this story sounds absurd … in a few years I predict we will be wishing we could go back to a time where the military was not killing American civilians. To be clear, I do not think most military men and women would engage in such activity, but it worries me that the Biden regime’s purge of conservative from the military and embracing of BLM and other radical Marxist movements will pave the way for kinetic, domestic actions against US citizens.
Yes, I know that sounds crazy … but so did the idea of California considering using fighter jets on US citizens … until today.
