Why the march of the militia did not take place in Washington: possible reasons

Joe Biden officially took office as President of the United States. Now, only the phrase "former president" applies to his predecessor, Donald Trump. As the eccentric businessman-politician did not get excited, he did not succeed in retaining the chair of the head of state. Numerous supporters did not help either, although not so long ago the millionth march of the militia was announced in Washington.


National Guard brought to the streets of Washington


Marches of disagreement with the results of the presidential elections in the United States are already becoming a tradition. For example, when Trump was elected president, a march of women feminists took place in the capital, who protested against his election. On January 20, 2021, the day of Biden's inauguration, Trump supporters pledged to bring a million militias onto the streets of Washington.

The American militia is such a conglomerate of right-wing social organizations and lonely conservatives who share the traditional US values ​​of the WASP. The militias stepped up in messengers and social networks, which alarmed the American security forces: for example, US Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy spoke with alarm that there are many former military personnel with experience of participation in hostilities in the ranks of Trump's supporters, they were also among those who are not so long seized the Capitol.


National Guardsmen at the Capitol Building


To counter attempts to thwart Biden's inauguration, units of the US National Guard were pulled into Washington. These days, despite all the achievements of the United States in the economy and defense, external differences from all kinds of "Guatemala, Honduras and Liberia" have been a little erased: the military in the Capitol building, on the streets of the capital - with a weapons, fully equipped. Here it is, the vaunted American democracy!

Judging by the posts on social networks and messages in messengers published by the American media, Trump supporters were indeed very determined. They threatened to bring so many armed militias onto the streets of Washington that not only the Metropolitan Police, but also the National Guard could not cope.

2nd round on January 20. No mercy this time. I don't even care if Trump stays in power. I care about war

- the American Internet was full of similar messages these days.

Possible reasons for the failure of the march


However, January 20, 2021 today is already a thing of the past, and will never happen again. But for some reason, a million militias never came out onto the streets of Washington. Were the vaunted American Militia and other rightists unable to gather the people? Or have they suddenly lost interest in Trump and no longer want to fight for his presidency with the police and national guards?


National Guard was deployed to Washington from all over the country


There may be several reasons for this. First, the authorities have indeed taken unprecedented steps to secure Biden's safe inauguration. Thousands of National Guard troops were sent to the US capital. The streets of Washington were blocked with special fences and army trucks, and armed patrols were stationed everywhere. Any attempt to create riots could have been thwarted by so many soldiers.

Secondly, another version is not excluded - fanning the noise around the march of the militia was initially beneficial to Trump's opponents from the US Democratic Party. By portraying Trump supporters as dangerous extremists who undermine the foundations of national security, they have undermined the credibility of Trump among a significant portion of Americans, including the electorate of Trump's "native" Republican Party.


National Guard patrols on the streets of Washington


At the same time, the spread of rumors about a march made it possible to introduce additional units of the National Guard to Washington, to actually transfer the city to martial law and to conduct the inauguration without any interference. Considering that the Democrats actively used the potential of social networks before, they could well organize a stream of fake information about the allegedly impending march, and then impress the rest of the Americans and the leaders of the security forces with this.

Thirdly, Trump's supporters themselves could understand that he had lost and the holding of the march would only entail senseless bloodshed, and the political alignment in the United States would not change from this.

The option and agreements with Trump himself are also being considered - when he calmly flies to Florida, refusing to fight these days, and the "elites" will not insist on his impeachment.

In any case, Trump is no longer the President of the United States, Democrats can celebrate a victory, albeit a temporary one. And the "militia" dispersed to the kitchens ...

            There is no need to cherish hope, although a woman does not like affection. She needs to be firmly inserted in certain places. I remember this expression - if Fortune turned her back to you, you need to hit your back hard, then she will turn to see who did it.

            When on the first place of business, and there are legal oruzhie- each burst into the store and robbing / burning his negr- would get a bullet in the head

            Just in the first place, just the business owners turn on their brains and compare the future risks - killing an African American who breaks into your store during the "BLM" campaign is not a good idea, because then there will be a trial with the costs of lawyers and media coverage, and in consequence of this and boycott your store by the whole neighborhood. Wouldn't it be better to just get insurance for what was pillaged and stolen, and who will shoot at the "looters" - ordinary sellers?
            But the whites did not go to the barricades, and they didn’t shoot either, it’s easier to kneel down. Although business is not in the first place now, its preaching has made people an inert flock

            No shit to yourself - an inert herd with 400 mln. expensive variety of weapons, including automatic, plus means of protection, we would have such a standard of living. And it is not just there, but people go to shooting ranges and know how to shoot, and this is so ordinary it is perceived, well, like owning a smartphone or a car. Then who are the Russians compared to them? In which country will the power be more abused and slide into kleptocracy, where 100% of the population owns weapons, or only 3%, as in the Russian Federation?
            And how can you talk about an inert herd if such a mess has been brewed because of one murder? We can only dream of such a consolidation of society and silently envy. So your words are very appropriate for the population ... of Russia.

    It was pointless. The march would have been shot as a "march of veterans" in its time - and exactly as it happened then, they would have submitted their version. And they would have eaten everything.
    PiSi: which, by the way, is curious, for example, in the Russian-language Pediviki articles about the march of veterans - there is simply NO. So it is supervised by the State Department, and the State Department does not like to remember the "triumphs" of its "democracy" winked That's how it would be now. Inside the states, they would arrange a hunt for Trumpist witches, and outside the United States, they would be carefully hushed up. Already worked out

    The informational content of the article reminded me of an old anecdote.

    Once, a match factory burned down in Odessa. The authorities turned to the townspeople with a request to inform if anyone knows something.
    One came from Peresyp.
    - Hello, I have to tell you about the match factory.

    Trump disowned the riots and gave a back, so as not to be prosecuted and to be able to run in the next elections. According to all polls, he is still very popular and the announcement of the creation of his party is an attempt to "monetize" public sentiment into political dividends (to secure conservative niche)

    Are they going to arrange bad revolutions? The revolution leads to even greater poverty, we throw 100 million of God, the remaining 200 million will not exchange their prosperity for a pie in the sky. Moreover, Biden is ready to continue to turn on the printing press. Until autumn, they will throw "money from the helicopter."

    Why the militia march did not take place in Washington

    Because they are much more experienced than us in working with the crowd. The Democrats deliberately gave up the Capitol while the protesters were not particularly warmed up, which extinguished their anger and satisfied their ambitions. And happy that everything turned out so easily for them, the attackers did not destroy anything especially. The authorities used this incident to send troops and the National Guard. For arrests of more active supporters of Trump. To block the accounts of not only Trump, but also his supporters. The media took this opportunity to throw mud at not only the former president, but also the Chinese and me. After that, our embassy's phones were cut off, and the Chinese were given a website.
    The guys work very competently.
