Sanders Screams Protestors “Viciously Attacked” By Trump: Meanwhile, DC Riots Subdued

Democrats were impotently furious yesterday that the president deployed real actions to disperse the people who rioted and burned D.C. the night before, yet last night, the capitol was more peaceful than before.

There is apparently no depths of insanity democrats will not stoop to, in order to defend destruction, chaos, and anarchy.

Breitbart News reported:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Monday claimed that President Trump had D.C. protesters “viciously attacked” after they reportedly refused to clear the area outside of Lafayette Park.

Trump just had peaceful demonstrators viciously attacked. No, Mr. President. This is not a dictatorship. This is the United States of America. Our citizens have a constitutional right to peacefully protest. It’s called the First Amendment.

— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) June 2, 2020

[Isn’t it so funny how liberals will defend the First Amendment for rioters, but not church goers?]

Philip Wegmann, White House Correspondent for RealClearPolitics, reported that protesters were “warned 3 times over loud speaker by park service and police to clear the area,” citing a source with “direct knowledge”:

Trump addressed the nation in a Rose Garden press conference Monday evening — the day after rioters wreaked havoc on the city, vandalizing memorials and setting structures ablaze. While he urged governors to take action, he vowed to intervene in the event that local leaders fail to quell the violence.

“If a city or a state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” the president stated.

He concluded his address with an announcement of his immediate plans to “pay my respects to a very, very special place” — St. John’s Episcopal Church, the day after rioters targeted the beloved church.

Trump walked through Lafayette Park to visit the historic church, holding up a Bible upon his arrival:

“Here in the nation’s capital, the Lincoln Memorial and the World War Two Memorial have been vandalized,” Trump noted during his Rose Garden address. “One of our most historic churches was set ablaze.”

Many people cheer the action, which cleared out these malcontents bent in further destruction:

And… IT WORKED.

The streets of Washington, D.C. were much more peaceful last night, thanks to Trump’s intervention.

Breitbart News reported:

The streets of Washington, DC, were quieter on Monday night after President Donald Trump deployed the National Guard to the city to enforce a 7:00 p.m. curfew.

Trump relieved Democrat Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser of command of law enforcement in her city after days of failure to stop violent rioting, looting, and property destruction, including multiple fires.

Federal law enforcement deployed in force around the city after successfully moving protesters out of Lafayette Park across from the White House. President Trump made a point of restoring law and order by walking to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church that was damaged by violence next to the White House on Sunday night after delivering a speech vowing to stop the violence.

That angered Bowser, who accused the president of making the job of D.C. police harder.

I imposed a curfew at 7pm. A full 25 minutes before the curfew & w/o provocation, federal police used munitions on peaceful protestors in front of the White House, an act that will make the job of @DCPoliceDept officers more difficult. Shameful!

DC residents — Go home. Be safe

— Muriel Bowser #StayHomeDC at 7 pm (@MurielBowser) June 2, 2020

But the presence of federal law enforcement dominated the streets of Washington, DC.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Milley was spotted visiting the troops in the streets of DC, as they deployed around the city.

Attorney General Bill Barr and Defense Secretary Mark Esper also were spotted visiting the police lines.

Dozens of protesters were arrested in the city for breaking the 7:00 p.m. curfew.

Helicopters were deployed to hover over crowds of protesters to encourage them leave the streets.

There were still some isolated incidents of violence reported around the city. Some shop windows were reportedly smashed on 14th Street as helicopters continued to hover low over violent protesters to disperse them. A CVS was also reportedly looted. Some businesses on 7th Street had smashed windows as well.

Hundreds of law enforcement are herding remaining protesters — many trying to smash things as they go — by every means possible: on foot, on bikes, in cars, with flash grenades, in the circling helicopter.

Things are growing unruly downtown. People are smashing windows with rocks and baseball bats. The helicopter is circling ever closer overhead. Police are throwing flash grenades to force the group in certain directions.

Reporters on the scene noted that areas of the city were quiet, where 24 hours earlier they were filled with rioting, vandalism, and looting.

City seems mostly quiet now, just jam-packed with law enforcement who are standing silent guard over empty streets. Protesters appear dispearsed. If anyone’s still out, they’re wandering in 2s or 3s.

Other reporters noted that police forces outnumbered the protesters.

In other areas, law enforcement threw flashbang grenades in the streets to get protesters to disperse.
