Riots for Thee, But Not for Me: Washington Governor Calls Out Armed Troops To Protect His Mansion

This weekend, Washington State’s failed presidential hopeful but current Gov. Jay Inslee has called out 750 National Guardsmen, with their guns, to protect the Governor’s Mansion. This is the same governor who slow-walked calling out the Guard week after week of this summer’s riots in Seattle.

From the Post Millennial:

According to a Post Millennial exclusive, during the armed occupation of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood last summer, Seattle city employees tasked with dealing with the occupied protest, asked for the National Guard, and were denied that help by Governor Inslee. Businesses and residents in the zone sent hundreds of emails to the Governor and local officials asking for help.

Eventually, after tens of millions in damages, burned up police cars and even stolen police patrol rifles, Inslee sent 200 unarmed Guardsmen to help restore some semblance of order in Seattle.

But now, with anticipated crowds demonstrating against his inept leadership, Inslee wasted no time deciding that a new Guard call-out was necessary.  And he wants them to bring their guns.


The Post Millennial has the story of epic hypocrisy from the failed presidential hopeful:

Friday, Washington State Democrat Governor Jay Inslee called up National Guard troops to protect the state Capitol campus, including the Governor’s mansion,  when the Legislature goes into session on Monday.

This comes in response to a pro-Trump rally in front of the state Capitol building on Wednesday, a few hours after the riot at the Capitol in Washington, DC. A group broke away from the larger demonstration in Olympia, WA, and forced their way onto the grounds of the Governor’s mansion…

Governor Inslee has ordered up to 750 members of the National Guard to help with security on Monday. The governor’s office said that at least some of the troops on duty Monday will have their weapons.

However, this summer when violent riots rocked downtown Seattle, Inslee sent National Guard troops to the area unarmed.

Isn’t it amazing how hard-left, anti-gun politicians seem so hands-off when it comes to protecting the little people, but when they perceive a threat to themselves and their families, they act to bring in all manner of armed protection.

It’s almost like they know that the only thing that stops bad people with evil in their hearts is a good guy or gal with a gun.

    So much for the useful idiots. I predicted that the boot would come down on their necks as soon as the Dems got into power.

      Just like how Hitler had the SS assassinate the Brown Shirts after he was done using them to assault and harass his political opponents. History has a funny way of repeating itself, only fools refuse to see it.

    Everyone who doesn’t fight against the fraudulent election supports this governor and this type of behavior.

      Same goes for the tyrants guarding these places. All that thank you for your service shit is out the window. I served, got out. Saw the government going this way and the wars we fought for them are unjustifiable. If you are still serving, you better rethink your stance on freedom.

      1. avatar me says:

        It was only cool and justifiable when you did it, right?

          Ooh look, a real “patriot”.

          You’ll see when the military starts shooting civilians.

      2. avatar Montana 6 actual says:

        As soon as you got your retirement you could no longer support it? Piece of shit. All that “thank you for your service” ended as son as you stopped serving?

        1. avatar Montana Actual says:

          I know why I joined. Maybe you need to realize why others do. I know why I got out. Maybe you need to realize the only reason people stay in.

          There is no honor amongst tyrants. I get it, there is a contract and you’d be asking for soldiers to go AWOL and give up that cushy lifestyle.

          Given the nature of the militaries current existence on our own soil, that choice would be very clear to me.

      3. avatar Montana sucks says:

        Serving was so honorable until you got the big chicken dinner right?

        1. avatar Montana Actual says:

          Honorable?

          99% of soldiers join for a job and the benefits.

          I learned my lesson.

    It amazes me that the people don’t see the hypocrisy.
    Antifa was attacking police, businesses, bystanders and they did nothing.
    Now the police are going to do something?? Yeah, because they think they’re Trump supporters, not antifa or BLM
    Any Trump supporters should wear the black & red flag. It’s like kryptonite to the cops.

      Those were just the homes and businesses of us plebes.

      One of the unwashed getting his feet up on Pelosis desk is like Mongol hordes storming a sacred temple and that can’t stand.

      Their reaction to the perceived soiling of their holy status is justification enough to begin wheeling the guillotines to DC.

      Amazing how some people can still support the Thin Blue Line after they shown that they have no loyalty to they guys that stood behind them. Police loyalty is to the person issuing their paychecks, that it.

    Just like that, Dems support police

      But who do police support?

    Those behind the slander, libel and election fraud obviously threw the first punch. Now they are all acting innocent and pointing fingers of outrage at everyone but themselves…That’s after they scattered like cockroaches and emerged from their hiding place..

    Yepper the good old White House can dish out orders to raid a compound in Waco for a Gun Control photo op and when it goes not as planned the leader is accused of everything in the book. Eventually men, women, children were burned alive in what they called “home.”. And of course all of those behind the scheme walked just like those behind all the slander and libel and election fraud walked. So yes mr. and miss democRat you have got millions of decent people mighty pissed off at you. With that said…The worst fight you’ll ever be in is one with a fuker who is very pissed off at you over something you did.

    [line from the movie “She”]
    Sad that government officials feel the need to barricade themselves from the citizens. Certainly isn’t what the United States used to be. Tick tock tick tock, thinking, ,,💡, Them damned Beatles , it was all good till they showed up.Smoking banana skins, holding hands, doing it on the road. Nothing but four longhaired beatnik’s singing about the USSR and Yellow Submarine’s, by gawd, ruined the whole country. Damn you Ed Sullivan.

    This is the same FBI that started the BIG LIE and despite their attempt to disparage the president using material that they knew was very problematic ended up attempting to defend their untenable position. This makes a mockery of justice! The criminals have become the prosecutors or persecutors, to be precise. History will define Byden’s administration as the “ship of pirates”.
