Americans Assaulted: When Local Officials Refuse to Enforce The Law
“We cannot trust the DC mayor to protect those who she politically disagrees with,” Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update.
Last Thursday’s attacks on attendees of the president’s RNC convention speech were not but further confirmation of “the communist insurrection we are facing in many cities,” Fitton stated. As you may already know, many of those who attended the president’s White House event – including U.S Senator Rand Paul and conservative commentator Dan Bongino – were assaulted upon leaving the White House complex. “Imagine trying to exit the White House and not being sure that your life is going to be protected because the communist insurrectionists with a history of violence are standing just outside?”
“I don’t know what the DC police were doing, or what the Feds were doing,” Fitton continued. “But with Mayor Bowser’s promotion of BLM and Defund the Police propaganda, is it any surprise that American citizens were assaulted after leaving the WH last night?” Clearly, “we cannot trust the DC mayor to protect those who she politically disagrees with.”
As Fitton has argued for months, many local and state officials cannot be trusted with containing the violence which ravages their cities. As was the case with Seattle, Portland, and many other cities across the United States, the “riots take place because of political decisions by local officials to not enforce the law.” In response, while forces within the Administration, including high-ranking Pentagon officials, have seemed reluctant for the president to invoke the Insurrection Act, Fitton argues that the president should. Giving the Federal Government the power to mobilize forces where there is escalating unrest, the president “should not wait for the governors to ask. he should invoke the Act as soon as anything pops up and move in. That’s what the law is there for,” Fitton concluded.
The events in DC were forseeable, in Fitton’s words. “Before the event began, the communists had been gathering. It was evident what had been happening. and sure enough they were assaulting 1,000+ Americans including senior government officials leaving the WH.”
