Racist Madman in Charge of Nancy Pelosi's Taskforce Proposes Permanent Military Force to "Protect" DC

I'm sure the "anti-authoritarians" of NeverTrump will be writing many scathing blogposts about this.

A task force charged with making recommendations to boost congressional security after a deadly Jan. 6 pro-Trump mob assault on Capitol Hill has proposed establishing a permanent military presence ready to go at a moment's notice in Washington, D.C.

The security review, led by retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, who ran military relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina, recommended establishing a permanent National Guard quick reaction force, or QRF, for all of D.C.

...

"This could be done by mobilizing military police from Guard elements across the U.S. on rotations of three to six months," the task force's report states. "Another option would be to create a QRF that permanently resides within the D.C. Guard by reestablishing a military police battalion and staffing it with active Guard reserve troops who live in or near the city year-round, perpetually on active duty."

Remember when recommending temporarily using the guard to suppress deadly riots in multiple cities was something you couldn't propose in the NYT?
