The outrage over the federal government’s presence in a number of American cities continues to grow, and it has prompted protests near and far.
This is the sort of governmental overreach that we’ve been warned about time and time again from all sides of the political spectrum. Second Amendment advocates have long stated that this was their fear – federal agents arriving in our cities, and usurping the authority of our elected officials.
Worse still is the fact that many of these agents have been linked to the Department of Homeland Security – an agency whose very presence has been a thorn in the side of Tea Party patriots and freedom advocates for nearly two decades.
This has prompted protesters to begin demonstrating at the home of DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
Protesters marched to Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf’s home in Alexandria, Virginia, on Sunday to demand an end to the deployment of federal officers in response to unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
Demonstrators began to gather at an intersection near Wolf’s home in Alexandria on Sunday morning at around 10:15 a.m.
The protesters were concerned about Wolf’s impunity in this whole debacle.
“We know there are no career consequences for these men and women. We know there are no financial consequences for these men and women. We know there are no legal consequences for these men and women. We must make social consequences for these men and women,” one protester could be heard saying in video posted to Twitter by journalist Julio Rosas.
The entire fiasco of having federal troops battling American citizens on cities such as Portland and Seattle could also damage President Trump’s reelection chances, particularly as Libertarian-leaning GOP voters continue to lash out at the practice.
