DHS deploys special federal unit to protect monuments over July 4 weekend amid vandalism fears

FOX:

 The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is deploying a special federal unit across the country for the July 4 weekend in order to protect federal monuments and statues from a possible fresh wave of vandalism.

“The upcoming July 4th holiday weekend has the potential for increased disruptive activity at specific locations across the country that could threaten our personnel and the Federal facilities and property they protect,” a soon-to-be-released memo penned by acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf, and obtained by Fox News, says. “DHS will be forward leaning in preparing to protect federal facilities and property.”

Rapid Deployment Teams (RDTs) from the Protecting American Communities Task Force (PACT), and consisting of law enforcement officers specially trained in areas such as crowd control and riot control, will be dispatched to Portland, Seattle and Washington D.C.

Additional RDTs will be dispatched regionally so that they can be flown into any other area within a few hours should unrest spark up in other cities across the U.S. MORE HERE

  1. I remember the old days when it was Islamic terrorism we had to fear on July 4th and other national holidays.

  2. …nah, Antifa can go ahead and attack ’em.

    …but there might be some folks holding a DIFFERENT kind of “firecracker” nearby, and it’s REAL hard to pick out a single gunshot with all the fireworks continuously going off ‘n all, just sayin’…

  3. You have to read the article to get this:

    “In this order, Trump directs that DHS “shall provide, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, personnel to assist with the protection of Federal monuments, memorials, statues, or property.””

    About time!

  4. 09/11/2001 happened almost 20 years ago. The threat then was from the outside who had moved inside…..The threat now is from the inside with the help from the outside…squish this shit now and lets return to the normal that we all knew…..

  5. …aaand, those people will just stand idly by like cops ALWAYS do when Antifa/BLM get huffy, except to protect the people WRECKING the statures from the people who don’t like statues being WRECKED…

    …besides, if they actually ARRESTED someone, then Barr would have to do something. We wouldn’t want to disturb his nap now, WOULD we? You know, the nap he’s been taking in Session’s old seat, it must be REALLY comfy because it seems to make ALL the Trump AGs immediately comatose…

  6. They can start by arresting Mayor Levar Stoney in Richmond, Virginia, and give him 10 years behind bars for approving the removal of the Stonewall Jackson statue.

  7. Take it for what it’s worth; we’re all adults and know how the internet can work – This morning, I’ve been watching several livestreams and participating in the chat-feed that accompanies the livestream of the action at CHOP. One person came in and stated that there was stuff on the “dark web” about a “purge” type plan for the 4th of July with the goal of killing a bunch of white people.

    Again, take it for what it’s worth. I think we all know we’re dealing with some real animals among the BLM and Antifa people. I’m all about situational awareness at all times, regardless.

    I started hearing the same thing about a week ago. The threat is specifically about explosives. Remember here a while back there were some Antifa supposedly being trained by some Jihadi types in the middle east? Who knows. Usually these warning/threats are all bull shit. But these clowns seem to be pretty motivated.

  9. Don’t worry. Islam is still da bomb. Riots and attempted anarchy are the purview of those lovely humans at BLM / PANTYFART.
