The first sign that a dictator is losing his grip on his nation is when he deploys the military to hold the line. North Korea has its military on the streets. Iran has its military patrolling their streets. In countries where the people want a change in their government, the military is deployed to the streets.
Donald Trump has threatened to deploy the U.S. military to quell the violence and the looting from the rising protests across the nation. Protesters have moved on the White House forcing Trump and some family members to hunker down in the bunker.
This imagery demonstrates that Donald Trump is under siege by a significant, if not the majority, of Americans. By threatening to deploy the U.S. military, Donald Trump is nothing more than a dictator.
The White House is under siege, thanks to Donald Trump.
What Americans are experiencing today is what many used to watch on television when they saw news reports of unrest in countries like Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, among others.
There is a chaos on American streets.
Looting and protesters on American streets isn’t new. In many ways it is as American as apple pie.
But things are different now.
Rather than attempting to calm down the American people, Donald Trump is instead threatening to shut down the nation by deploying U.S. military forces against American citizens.
It is true that U.S. soldiers have been deployed before to help stop violent protesters. In the 1960’s they were used to address racial issues. In 1970, to break up a postal strike in New York. In 1989, George H. W. deployed troops after Hurricane Hugo and in 1992, in response to the riots after the Rodney King verdicts the military was used to help stop the rioting.
The difference this time, is that the threat to use the military is national rather than in specific locations where the rioting is centralized.
America is on fire and the reason is Donald J. Trump.
