(PatrioticPost.com)- The Wisconsin National Gard was deployed to Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Monday following a night of insane violence and looting committed by far-left extremists responding to the shooting of Jacob Blake. If you missed the story, Blake is a black man in Wisconsin with a history of sexual and domestic abuse, as well as assaulting police officers, who was shot after resisting arrest and reaching into his car to grab an unidentified object.
The shooting prompted yet more Black Lives Matter riots, which resulted in businesses being destroyed and looted, buildings set on fire, and a night of uncontrollable chaos. Governor Tony Evers confirmed on Monday that, in response to the riots, some 125 members of the National Guard would be deployed to Kenosha to get a grip on the violence.
Governor Evers also declared a state of emergency, for the Guard to be deployed, and said that they will aim to guard infrastructure, protect property from looting and vandalism, and to protect firefighters who will be putting out fires started by Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists.
“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,” he said in an official statement.
Sure, because Black Lives Matter is interested in assembling peacefully and safely right…
You only need to see some of the footage from the first night of violence to know that these people are not interested in assembling peacefully. They are the ones causing the danger by setting fire to furniture stores and looting businesses.

For “racial justice!” am I right?

Wisconsin’s adjutant general Maj. Gen. Paul Knapp said that one of the core missions of the National Guard is to serve fellow Wisconsin citizens and assist civil authorities “during times of need.”
“Our Citizen Soldiers and Airmen are well-trained and prepared to assist in any way we can in an effort to preserve public safety,” he said.
Why haven’t other (Democrat) governors taken this kind of action in response to growing violence in American cities?
