The commanding officer of the Minnesota National Guard is in direct communication with Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon.


Gov. Tim Walz Mobilizes MN National Guard In Full, Due To Widespread Violence

Last night, Minnesotans and the world saw National Guard members arrive at the 5th Precinct to clear out the crowd. On Saturday, the full force of the Minnesota National Guard has been mobilized in response to widespread, ongoing violence.

It’s a move that has never before been taken in the state’s history. According to online accounts, there may be up to 13,000 soldiers and airmen serving communities in Minnesota.

The largest deployment in state history will take place ahead of what’s expected to be the largest influx of protesters the city has seen so far in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.

“Our great cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are under assault,” Gov. Tim Walz said Saturday morning. “The situation in in Minneapolis is now about attacking civil society, instilling fear and disrupting our great city.”
Walz says the current situation is "a mockery of pretending this is about Geroge Floyd's death."

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said that, if anyone has relatives who are considering joining protests tonight to beg them not to go, owing to the dangerousness of the situation. St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter III said that, although there weren’t as many addresses in his city on the comparatively quiet Friday night, “every single person” that was taken into custody was from out of state.

Most people arrested last night were not Minnesota residents. We're dealing with outside agitators trying to exploit the situation to their advantage.

We need smart reprisal that hits the core of these groups. Domestic terrorists are not welcome.

I'd reserve prison for those who seriously harm others in the course of "a riot".

Day too late. But it was impossible to know that they'd still be here Fri night wrecking havoc, after Thurs night.

They left Sat.

Yes. Quit voting DFL. Do not empower these domestic terrorists.
