General outlines National Guard role if Vermont riots - VT Digger

Vermont National Guard Adjutant General Greg Knight said the National Guard will only answer mobilize for riot control if called by Gov. Phil Scott.

"“We are the resource of last resort,” Knight said. “If we’re called, it is not a protest, it means something vastly different.” “Our supporting role of civil authority is to preserve life, protect property, and maintain public safety — that’s it,” Knight added. “It is always in the background, it is always in support."

    vt digger like many so called news outlets are perfectly comfortable with
    projecting hypotheticals into the minds of their readers.
    President Trump is the one man calling for law and order, pushing back on paid, fully funded rioters designed to disrupt our way of life and our
    nation.
    Asking the General a question like that is stupid and irresponsible!

    Truly peaceful protesters are not the problem, ANTIFA and the BLM
    organizations are, plain and simple

    Reading a footnote concerning Tim Ashe accusing Mr. Page of attacking Mr. Soros for being Jewish is unfounded. BTW his real name was Schwartz before he stole wealth from his Jewish neighbors as reward for identifying Jews for the Nazi SS when he was a young man during Hitler reign of terror. He was a trader then and he is an enemy of all Jews now. This was admitted to by George Soros himself during a 60 minutes interview. The Jewish mantra of “never again” especially applies to this schmendrik schmuk, George Soros. He should have been tried at Nuremburg.

    The only reason Burlington is being spared riots is because Bernie Sanders doesn’t want to be associated with that kind of uprising in his mayoral hometown. It would be detrimental to the Biden campaign. But if Trump contests the election by invoking the 14th amendment Burlington will burn while Sanders flees the country to save his own skin.
