70 million people think the election was rigged. Any of 'em IN the military guarding DC?

Hello:


If Trump got just short of HALF the votes, certainly just short of HALF the military voted for him.  Therefore, it stands to reason that just short of HALF the soldiers supposedly "PROTECTING" Biden, are insurrectionists just like the rioters.

Is that gonna pose a problem?

First, the FBI is vetting guardsman at the Capitol out of this very concern. It's reasonable to think that some tasked with protecting the inauguration believe Trump's rhetoric.

Second, supposing that the military population is proportional to the general population is a mistake. The military is typically disproportionately Republican. It would not be a stretch to suppose that more than half of the people protecting the inauguration voted for Trump.

Third, supposing that a Republican vote means support for insurrection is completely fallacious. If it were true, close to half the population, including most gun owners, the majority of the military, and majority of police would all have mobilized on January 6th and the conversation today would be very different from concerns for the Presidential transition.

It's not to say they are harmless, really no one is harmless in this circumstance, but believing a lie doesn't mean they won't do their jobs. Some may act up and side with the terrorists, but most are people that realize their jobs and opinions don't always go hand in hand, yet still do their jobs.

Probably. The last 5,000 media conspiracy narratives were false, so you should buy a tinfoil hat and grab your ankles.

According to what or who? 5,000 sounds like a nice round number. The kind of number you just make up because you're a mad retarded Nazi with nothing important to say.

OK.

First of all, asshole, voting for someone is not insurrection, that's the democratic process.

Second, the overwhelming majority of people who voted for Trump don't support the Capital riot. If you're going around drawing a line in the sand that says every conservative is a traitor to the nation, that is how you get a civil war which you are just not fucking smart enough to even understand, much less survive.

And third, I'd be amazed if more than 20% of the military voted for Biden.

Right. They just support the man who incited the Capitol riot.
