— “These soldiers are disregarding and overriding the elementary rights of American citizens by applying tactics which must have been copied from the manual issued the officers of Hitler’s storm troopers.”
— The president is substituting “military dictatorship for the Constitution of the United States.”
— “My fellow citizens, we are now an occupied territory.”
All this because, after 50 days of raging violence, President Trump has finally sent federal agents to restore order in Portland, Oregon.
No — wait. Different Democrats and different president.
Although all those quotes are indeed from Democrats about a Republican president, it wasn’t Trump. They were Democrats Richard Russell, George Wallace and Orval Faubus, denouncing President Dwight Eisenhower for sending troops to enforce desegregation at a schoolhouse in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In 1983, Faubus was warmly embraced by Bill Clinton at his gubernatorial inauguration. Today’s Democrats are Orval Faubus.
In Portland, Chicago, New York, Seattle, Atlanta and elsewhere, children are not merely being blocked from the schoolhouse door — they’re being killed. They’re being maimed. Citizens are having their property looted and their public spaces destroyed, all with the connivance of local Democratic officials.
And once again, the Democrats are championing states’ rights to protect domestic terrorists.
“Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.” — Nancy Pelosi
Democrats and the media want the federal government to brutally crack down on people who don’t wear masks — whatever the states say — but faced with an actual violent rebellion, the feds are supposed to stand back and let the governors lead!
