On the eve of the Inauguration, it was discovered that thousands of National Guardsmen were called up to D.C. It appears the Democrats wanted a “show of force” of some kind to discouraged alleged rumors of violence during the event.
Tens of thousands of guardsmen were ordered to report to the Capitol, so many they had no place to put them. Pictures and video quickly emerged of our troops sleeping on the floor in government buildings and even in the streets. The federal government assured us that these men and women had “cots” and enough food and resources.
But things got worse from there.
There was not even a hint of violence at the Inauguration, mostly because few Americans even cared it was happening. All those troops were there to keep the peace, it seems, but to scare Americans into complying with Biden’s presidency. But the very Democrats who ordered them to guard the city treated our soldiers like dirt.
Apparently, someone on the left complained they weren’t wearing masks.

So, this is what they did to our troops.
Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds on Thursday and have been photographed having to sleep in parking garages while temperatures in the nation’s capital were set to dip down to near-freezing temperatures…
“Simply unacceptable. You’re always welcome in my office,” Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) wrote on Twitter…
“I don’t know who ordered them to go sleep in a garage and can’t understand why they would do that. It needs to be reversed.” [Said Marco Rubio]
“This is unacceptable,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) wrote on Twitter. [Source: Daily Wire]
That’s right. Not even a week into the new administration and Democrats are treating our soldiers like dirt. Those who serve in the Armed Forces understand that sometimes they are met with rough accommodations. But that is when they are overseas, fighting an enemy. Should any American be proud to see those who protect us sleeping in a garage like outcasts?
These men and women are volunteers who sacrificed their time (and their lives if need be) to serve and protect us. And this is how our leaders are treating them.
Nancy Pelosi demanded thousands of guardsmen come to D.C. The least she could do is provide them with some kind of shelter.
Instead, Democrats used them up and threw them away—typical it seems.
