National Guard Called In For George Floyd Trial

( Now that President Donald Trump has left the White House, Democratic politicians seem suddenly willing to bring in the National Guard to defend against Antifa and Black Lives Matter…and that’s precisely what just happened in Minnesota.

Governor Tim Walz issued an executive order on Friday calling for the support of the National Guard in the state’s Twin Cities, St. Paul and Minneapolis, ahead of the trial of a former police officer charged over George Floyd’s death. Derek Chauvin, who was seen on camera kneeling on Floyd’s death before he died, will go to court in March and Governor Walz is predicting violent unrest from “racial justice” activists.

“The upcoming trials of the former officers involved in the death of George Floyd have raised the potential of civil unrest in the Cities of Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and nearby communities,” the order says.

Well, he calls it “civil unrest.” 2020 showed us that it’s always a little more than just unrest, with American businesses suffering extreme violence, arson, and destruction by protestors who claim to advocate for black lives.

“The Mayors of Minneapolis and Saint Paul have requested assistance from the State, including the Minnesota National Guard, to support public safety and security and to prevent or respond to potential civil unrest,” Gov. Walz added. “In addition to other state resources, the National Guard can supplement local law enforcement efforts to keep the peace, ensure public safety, and allow for peaceful demonstrations.”

There is no word on whether Walz means literal peaceful protests, or the kind of destruction and violence that was wrongly labeled “mostly peaceful protests” by the media through 2020.

Chauvin is charged with second-degree manslaughter and second-degree murder. He is one of four former police officers who have been charged in relation to Floyd’s death, which was used by Antifa and Black Lives Matter to justify a wave of violent protest across America’s major cities throughout 2020.

John Harrington, the Department of Public Safety Commissioner in Minnesota, said he has never seen so federal, state, and local resources gathered so extensively before.

“It’s never happened in my 40-plus-year career where we’ve had to pull together this kind of multi-jurisdictional effort to keep the peace,” he told the Minnesota Star Tribune. “This is an exceptional time.”
