As the city prepares for the January 20 inauguration of Joe Biden, Washington, D.C. is turning into a militarized zone in the wake of the storming of the Capitol last Wednesday. The Capitol and Supreme Court are fenced off, the Washington Monument has been closed and thousands of troops are being deployed to D.C.–with no complaints by Democrats.

Last year, a week after Antifa and Black Lives Matter insurrectionists tried to storm the White House on May 29 and torched and looted buildings, stores, restaurants, cars and a historic church near the White house that same weekend, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) accused President Trump of turning D.C. into a “military zone.”
