Americans were outraged this week when photos emerged on social media of National Guard members being forced to sleep in a parking garage, once Democrats were done using them for a show of force in Washington, DC.
Now there are rumors that Democrats want to keep them in DC until March.
Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis says no way. He is recalling Florida’s National Guard members.
The Daily Wire reports:
DeSantis Orders FL Troops In D.C. Back Home: ‘They’re Not Nancy Pelosi’s Servants’
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday morning announced that he has ordered back home Florida National Guard troops sent to Washington, D.C., to secure the inauguration of President Joe Biden, which took place on Wednesday.
DeSantis called the “mission” in D.C. “half-cocked” and blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for treating troops like her “servants.”
“[Governor Ron DeSantis] says he ordered the National Guard to come home from the U.S. Capitol because ‘they’re not Nancy Pelosi’s servants’ and ‘this is a half-cocked mission at this point and I think the appropriate thing is to bring them home,’” reported Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau Chief Mary Ellen Klas.
A stunning 25,000 troops from across the nation were ordered to D.C. to secure the inauguration of Biden.

Last night, I ordered our Adjutant General to bring Florida National Guard soldiers home from the National Capital Region.

This is the right thing to do.

Other Republican governors would be wise to follow DeSantis’s lead.
