    Minneapolis Mayor...

    Here's the million dollar prize for our leftist wannabe dictators. The public, whipped up in a frenzy to destroy their own cities, democratic mayors plead for their governors to let the troops roll in. And this is how democracy dies. When democratic mayors turn a blind eye to the civil peace, foment violence in their own cities, all in a play to ultimately put in place martial law to subdue and control the citizens.

    This is what authoritarianism actually looks like. I cannot believe that the pet media are allowing these tyrants to install this in our land.

    If this is true martial law, all guns need to be collected from private citizens right?

    What an interesting notion coming from a liberal..... Isn't that what y'all have wanted from the start? Do you happen to also know what the schedule will be for the pubic branding to start?

    Why didn’t you mention Tennessee, Ohio and Georgia?

    Must not have met the narrative you are trying to push.

    I did. Cooper is the mayor of Nashville. Atlanta's democratic mayor begged for folks not to burn her city. And yet, there they are. Democrats shedding crocodilian tears while the troops roll in to crush our civil rights. This is almost exactly what would have happened in China.

    Just so I understand - you are against the city's leaders bringing in the national guard to assist the police force in stopping the violence?

    Likely, the last time y'all did this it was just numbers, I doubt y'all have been creative enough to modify the model yet.

    Democrats prove with their riots that Americans need more guns, not less.

    Ask why the city of Nashville, for example who employ several thousand police couldn't be asked to protect their own city? Why is that? Having the national guard come in to enforce martial law is simply the step tyrants take to make sure that the violence continues but that the rest of the city suffers under their regime. We've seen this in every authoritarian nation around the planet. And yet. you'll turn your blind eye now?

    Only state Governors can activate the guard.
    Current states: California, Georgia, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington state.

    So you have 4 Democratic Governors activating the guard and 6 Republican Governors doing the same and you somehow come to the conclusion that it is “leftist wannabe dictators” doing this...

    Ok...

    So you want to make this a Dem issue? Did you have a problem when Trump suggested it?

    Is martial law mentioned in the Constitution? I'm just curious.

    Responding to the calls from the democrats who allowed the abuses to happen in the first place. No? Austin, Dallas, Houston, all democratic mayors who allowed their cities to become violent and then begging for the national guard to come in to cover over their unwillingness to actually use the police forces in those cities to protect those cities.

    I see entirely different goals of the use of the military in these instances. Where Trump was really suggesting restoring order, democratic mayors are using this to subjugate their citizens. Entirely different mentalities wouldn't you agree?

    Look it up for yourself, and then get back to us when you think you might know the answer.

    I thought we hated fascists?

    Did that change between last week and now?

    Or does it only apply if we think the leadership is Republican?

    The media mostly works for the political interests of the DNC nowadays and this is what the DNC wants.

    Not sure how it is elsewhere, but in Louisville, the white people live on the east end, far from the trash downtown. I live even farther east than they do.

    Too many people practicing the 2A outside of downtown to try and riot there.

    They're only burning down their own neighborhoods because... justice or freedom or something.

    I can only speak for myself, but I don't see it as fascist for a government to bring in reinforcements to protect a city's property against fire and looting. Do you?
