Liberal critics have been quick to celebrate the “teamwork” of the US Capitol Police and multiple other law enforcement agencies, shown prepping for the Justice for J6 rally in Washington, DC en masse.
Ahead of Saturday’s rally – which reports have claimed could bring in as many as 700 Donald Trump supporters – the US Capitol Police Twitter account posted an image of hundreds of officers from multiple law enforcement agencies standing, ready to take orders from a Capitol police officer with a bullhorn.
“Teamwork,” the tweet read. National Guard soldiers are also on standby in case they are needed. Most officers called in for Saturday’s events are equipped with batons and safety vests.
While numerous conservative pundits have dismissed the rally and its potential fallout, liberal critics have been celebrating the massive police preparation for the event, tying it to the January 6 Capitol riot that led to multiple deaths, including a protester shot by an officer.
“Kid gloves off today,” one Twitter user wrote in response to the photo of the waiting law enforcement officers.
“Deal with them accordingly,” another cryptically added.
