Imagine if after the Reopen protests, there was a spike in coronavirus cases among law enforcement officers? Can you imagine how the media would report that? Not hard to imagine considering that the media treated anti-lockdown protesters as potential serial killers.
Meanwhile this has to be buried somewhere deep.
Some DC National Guard troops deployed to protests in Washington have tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Tuesday — as top White House coronavirus task force members warned governors of a possible spike in infections tied to the nationwide demonstrations.
he news follows reports that two members of the Nebraska National Guard who were activated to respond to protests in Lincoln also tested positive.
About 5,000 troops were in Washington for the civil unrest, with the DC guards being joined by National Guardsmen from 11 states: Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah.
Most were not wearing masks and it was largely impossible to maintain social distancing during the demonstrations.
So, in addition to trashing major cities and wiping out many small businesses, these racist thugs may have infected members of the Guard.
Remember when people spitting were treated as making terroristic threats? There was a whole lot of spitting on police and other personnel at these riots. But blue state governments won’t hold them accountable. If they spit on members of the Guard though, it might be a federal issue.
