About the complaints from the FOP about being "betrayed" by their leadership.

i encourage all of you to read their union's complaint. Then consider this. These complaints go a long way in supporting the new GOP meme that Pelosi and others were responsible for the damage and lives lost during the insurgency. They do these diversion tactics so well.

But don't well know that had their been more police present and tougher security including the national guard BEFORE the actual attack that Pelosi and the DC Mayor and other Dems would have been accused of coming down hard against the MAGAs protestors but allowing BLM and ANTIFA to protest wherever and whenever they wanted to. The presence of more police and the adequate equipment to thwart their violence against the Capitol would have been used against us (Democrats at all levels) to prove that MAGAs are the real victims and their freedoms are being denied.

Please do not allow the complaints now being voiced through the FOP turn your heads and minds and hearts away from what actually happened on 6Jan. It was and insurrection against our government, our institutions, our laws and our real freedoms. The media is playing right into the hands of the MAGA-GOP by now pushing this meme.

Just don't allow this victim blaming to go forward without significant challenge. STOP IT IN ITS TRACKS!!

I encourage you to provide a link to whatever it is you are talking about if you want people to read whatever it is.

Not everyone is tuned to the same frequency at all times. Perhaps you might provide some idea of what you are talking about, before jumping into a reaction to something that probably very few have even heard about.
