“The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that Virginia State Police were planning to deploy additional troopers Friday and throughout the weekend in case of any incidents or problems, but the group will be allowed to proceed as long as no laws are broken.”
What a weird way to phrase that: the group will be allowed to proceed. How nice of the government to “allow” the protest. That’s so gracious of them. Since when are we expected to get permission for a lawful event?
Should I also point out that while veterans aren’t allowed to access the WW2 monument, a bunch of illegal immigrants were allowed to hold a protest on the Mall.
