There’s no excuse for the comments that Chuck Schumer made on the army.
They were protecting our national heritage.
Chuck Schumer made a horrible attack on the military that shocked his audience.
In 1989, the Chinese government mowed down protesters gathered in Tiananmen Square with automatic weapons and tanks. Hundreds, if not thousands, died.
The Chinese government is still an oppressive regime that silences journalists and whistleblowers, controls their media and has put millions of their ethnic minorities in “re-education” programs.
CNN hosted a retired general who said that Trump disrupting the “peaceful” protesters may be the end of the American experiment.
That’s insane, the protesters had killed more people than the police in the riots.
David Dorn, a retired St. Louis police captain, was fatally shot in St. Louis as he was checking his friend’s business. The Ethical Society of Police said in a tweet, “He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to.”
The narrative the left is trying to push that the police are showing unwarranted brutality against peaceful protesters isn’t true.
The protests aren’t all peaceful which is why some of them have gotten shut down.
The Constitution gives the right to peacefully gather, not riot and loot.
Chuck Schumer was highly disturbed at the Lincoln Memorial being protected by soldiers. It made him think of the Tiananmen Square massacre.
“Rows of camouflaged troops standing at attention on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, like an occupying force defending a critical position,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Wednesday. “When you see the image of troops dressed for combat, flanking the Lincoln Memorial, an altar to freedom, you cannot help but think of Tiananmen Square.”
The big difference between that and Tiananmen Square is that the American protesters all went safely home to their families.
They just weren’t allowed to vandalize the Lincoln Memorial.
The American protesters weren’t risking their lives the way thousands in Hong Kong were when they defied the Chinese government to attend a Tiananmen vigil.
“President Trump ordered the D.C. National Guard to line the steps of the Lincoln Memorial after protesters vandalized the site over the weekend with black spray paint,” the Washington Examiner explained.
Schumer might feel like guards there are unnecessary but at the end of the day if anything went wrong and the memorial was hurt, he would be blaming Trump too.
“There could be no greater contrast between Lincoln and this president, who seems to have malice toward all and charity for none. Who seeks to deepen our nation’s real wounds rather than bind them up,” Schumer added.
Schumer neither knows history nor understands that the military and law enforcement are doing their best to make sure there is peace.
“That line has got to be drawn very clearly and we have to prevent our cities and towns from burning, and being looted,” Sen. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, said. “We don’t want uniformed officers on our streets. Of course we don’t. But we are going to have to take steps to in a lawful way to bring this violence under control, to stop it.”
