The Democratic governor of Wisconsin has called out the National Guard to help out in Kenosha on Monday night.

From WTMJ:

“This is a limited mobilization of the National Guard focused on supporting the needs of local first responders to protect critical infrastructure, such as utilities and fire stations, and to ensure Kenoshians are able to assemble safely,” Evers added in a statement Monday.

The idea is that they’re supposed to prevent further destruction. A perfectly logical response given the rioters destroyed and damaged multiple businesses, a church, a museum, a school, even the public library and the post office. Not to mention assaulted police officers, braining one cop with a brick and appearing to fire on other officers.

But even though it’s a logical response, folks on the left actually excoriated the governor for trying to protect the public.

How far gone some on the left have gone is demonstrated by the ACLU response.

“Deploying the National Guard in response to people exercising their right to protest is unnecessary. People in Kenosha have a constitutional right to express their indignation over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, as well as to demand an end to the epidemic of police violence that has systematically harmed and killed Black and brown people for generations,” an ACLU statement said.


The action is already underway.

Notice the rifle:

Surrounding a poor woman who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.


And that’s why you have the National Guard. Kenosha’s cops aren’t enough.

If the Guard wasn’t there, the courthouse would be a flaming pile of ash tonight, as that was what was being threatened. Right now it isn’t, because the Guard is there. Let’s hope the Guard is able to hold the rioters off and stay safe.
