When you’re applying for the job of president of all the American people and the militia comes to your rescue promising to “forcefully” protect some people over the safety and wellbeing of others, it would seem that your next move should be to disavow the militia and reassure all Americans that you will be their president.
If you are Donald Trump running for president under the Republican banner however, you will welcome the militia’s actions. In fact, you will even encourage it.
Hours after a protester rushed the stage at Trump’s Dayton rally, a Twitter group called “The Lion’s Guard” called on supporters of the GOP front-runner to join a make-shift militia, according to RT.
“Do you want to provide security protection to innocent people who are subject to harassment and assault by Far-left agitators?” Lion’s Guard asked in a call to action. “If so, you are welcome to join. That’s the mission — to protect innocents who can’t hire their own security guards.”
Lion’s Guard said that their members would be unarmed, “but willing to forcefully protect people if need be.”
“We are *defensive*, *protective* of innocents who are being beaten and harassed for their political views.”
Within hours, the account reportedly had over 500 followers, and members were already asking for “uniform suggestions.”
