    Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ordered members of the Texas National Guard to return from Washington, D.C. after U.S. Capitol Police forced thousands of soldiers to sleep and rest in a parking garage.

    “I have instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state,” Abbott wrote on Twitter on Thursday night.

    On Thursday, U.S. Capitol Police officials kicked thousands of guardsmen out of the federal buildings where they had been resting and relegated to parking garages.

    “You know, I was thinking, the [National] Guard is 90 some odd percent I believe male, only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You got to figure that in the Guard which is predominately more conservative, that I see that on my social media and we know it,” Cohen said on CNN. “There’s probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us who voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be the large class of folks who might want to do something.”​

    The Dems are an utter disgrace to the nation. They have no respect, yet expect it from others. They are rank hypocrites. Isn’t Cohen the stuntman who ate fried chicken when Barr didn’t appear? Yep. He is an absolute racist, an all too typical Dem.

    Tennessee Democrat's fried chicken stunt on Capitol Hill was 'racially insensitive:' Diamond and Silk

    From the comments:

    At first I thought it seemed like a high school type stunt, but then I look at my kids who are in HS and realize they would never act that immature. If these are the leaders of our nation we're in a bad spot.

    We are in a bad spot.​

    Yep. But never say it can’t be worse. The Dems haven’t done their Demmedest yet.

    I can’t believe that anyone except a Democrat would order any other American to sleep in a parking garage ever.

    I have read where Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has also recalled Florida guard back. Good for him.

    That concrete in the parking garages has to be as cold as ice in the weather that we have been having. The Dems are so cheap.

    It shows the depth of thought that went into such a call up. There was none. All that mattered was 'we want it'.

    All of it was a show of military power for democrat leaders, they were saying we are in control of this Banana Republic. The Soviets also would have military parades same as North Korea, to demonstrate their power. I suppose democrats could have ordered a military parade down the streets of the capital what a sight that would be.

    And for those of us who detest Biden and Harris in the admin, we should keep in mind that Nancy is just second from the left. Never say it couldn’t be worse.

    Well, speaking as someone who spent plenty of time in Wildflecken, Baumholder, Graf - as well as Alaska - as many NG who were there when they were on Active Duty - we would consider being in a parking garage as a vast improvement.

    As military personnel - we can take it - we accomplish the mission.

    That is not the point at all. And a gross sidetrack of the issue.

    I’ve had to sleep on the ground in the open in winter... had to move the snow outa the way. That’s the mission of the military.... to get the job done, mission accomplished.

    LOL. Candidate for post of the century? Intrenching tools in a parking garage in the middle of the capital. Pure genius. But why not have some real fun and use C-4? Oh, yeah. Open 'er up and let 'er rip. :Wink
