"There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state. The other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people."

@remotenemesis if and when he invokes the Insurrection Act of 1807, the american people officially become the enemy.

@sungo @remotenemesis I have edited my reply so many times, but I suspect mister central park five is looking forward to this opportunity.

@randomgeek @remotenemesis It is the worst case scenario, but rolling out the troops to DC, which requires no governor's permission, is, in my opinion, the first step to invoking the act and rolling the active military out everywhere.

Shortly before his rambling speech that may or may not have been about the Act, the military hit a completely peaceful protest with tear gas and flash bangs and chased them out of Lafayette square. Then the president spoke about deploying troops.

I have a very bad feeling.
