Washington, DC is under a total martial law lockdown in preparation for the totally legitimate inauguration of Joe Biden. The surreal images and videos coming out of the nation’s Capital just scream legitimacy and authenticity, don’t they? When you think about it, the situation is probably pretty terrifying for the 96% of people in DC who voted for Biden. They firmly believed that Donald Trump was some sort of dictator for four years, and now the town that they live and work in suddenly looks like it’s getting ready for Kim Jong-Un’s birthday party.
New CCTV cameras are being installed on streetlights all over the city. Entire city streets are blocked off with concrete anti-suicide-truck-bomb barricades. The initial 8-foot fencing that was installed around the Capitol building after the January 6th kerfuffle is being taken down; they’re replacing it with an un-climbable 12-foot wall. But it’s not the sort of racist wall like the one Donald Trump wanted on our southern border. This is a “protective” wall.
If Donald Trump were truly the most hated figure in the world, why didn’t the federal government deem him worthy of this sort of protection? Following the 2020 election, we now know that Joe Biden is the single most beloved political figure of all time. He totally got 80 million real votes! That’s more than any other politician, in any nation, in any democratic election, in all of human history.
And yet, despite the fact that Joe Biden is the most beloved and admired politician of all time, Washington, DC now looks like Baghdad in the middle of the second Gulf War. Why? What’s the point of all this?
Joe Biden is the single most admired and legitimate elected official ever. Who would want to do him harm? Especially knowing that Kamala Harris is eagerly waiting in the wings!
Some outlets are reporting that there are 21,000 National Guard troops stationed in DC right now, while others put the figure as high as 30,000. But that’s still not enough protection! As we all know, the Capitol Police were swiftly overwhelmed on January 6th by a guy in a bear costume, who was able to sit down in Nancy Pelosi’s chair on the House floor. What if… two guys in bear suits show up for the inauguration?! They might have to nuke the city, just to be on the safe side.
In the meantime, whoever is directing the martial law shutdown of DC has decided that all those National Guard troops are not sufficient. It’s all hands on deck. The Bureau of Prisons has placed all federal prisoners in lockdown in their cells, in order to free up more federal law enforcement personnel so they can come to DC and back up the National Guard.
The National Guard has now divided DC up into Red Zones and Green Zones. Within the Green Zones, you’re still allowed to drive down the street. However, you have to stop at military checkpoints so that the troops can check your photo ID and make sure you’re not hiding a bear costume in your car. And in the Red Zones… well, you’d better not make a wrong turn and try to drive into one of those zones. It won’t end well for you.
In other words, the useful idiots in DC who think it’s racist and illegal to make people show a photo ID before they vote… are being forced at gunpoint to show their ID, just to drive down the street.
Oh, and they’re shutting down four of the bridges into DC from Virginia for the next few days, and airlines flying into DC have banned firearms from checked luggage. The Department of Homeland Security notes that it has no intelligence on any specific or credible threats to Washington, DC right now.
To put this in a bit of perspective, it only took 13,000 National Guard troops to restore order in Los Angeles County during the Rodney King riots in the 1990s (population around 6-7 million then). But in Washington, DC (population 692,000), they’ve now got as many as 30,000 troops on the streets and no riots in sight. That’s also more troops than we used in the invasion of Grenada (7,300) and Panama (23,000).
These are not the actions of a regime that believes it has legitimate authority. This is what Third World banana republic leaders do, when they know that they are illegitimate, and the vast majority of the population hates them. In a country that has real elections, you don’t need to call up tens of thousands of troops with machine guns to protect your leaders.
But don’t worry. This martial law stuff will be over really soon. Think of it as… two weeks to flatten the curve!
