(Leah Barkoukis – Townhall) In his opening monologue on Monday, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson said the Democratic Party is using the militarization of the nation’s capital as a clear political weapon.
There will reportedly be more than 26,000 federal troops—something Carlson said “no living American has seen” before.
He used the historical examples of when 13,600 federal troops and the D.C. Army National Guardsmen were sent to Washington by Lyndon Johnson after MLK Jr.’s assassination, and during the Civil War era when there “were fewer federal troops protecting Washington, D.C., than there are right now.”
The move comes after a Jan. 5 riot at the U.S. Capitol Building, which is being viewed by political leaders as “much worse than any of that.”
