Well, in DC these past few days had security theater (26k Nat Guard and 6k police), completely militarizing DC to perpetuate the myth that DC was under siege due to Trump and his ‘right wing’ supporters’.
Yep, the Nat Guard were in DC to be used as nothing more than a photo op prop by the left. They questioned their loyalty, then made them sleep in a parking garage..

TX, FL, NH Governors Pull National Guard Units From D.C., DeSantis Smacks Pelosi For Their Shabby Treatment
Thousands of National Guardsmen were allowed back into the Capitol Thursday night, hours after U.S. Capitol Police officials ordered them to vacate the facilities, sending them outdoors or to nearby parking garages after two weeks pulling security duty after the deadly riot on Jan. 6.
One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.
All National Guard troops were told to vacate the Capitol and nearby congressional buildings on Thursday, and to set up mobile command centers outside or in nearby hotels, another Guardsman confirmed. They were told to take their rest breaks during their 12-hour shifts outside and in parking garages, the person said.
“This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard. No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard. I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC. I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.”
“They’re soldiers. They’re not Nancy Pelosi’s servants. And this comes on the backend of them trying to investigate the backgrounds of our guardsmen….I thought it was totally inappropriate. This is a half-cocked mission at this point.”
Actually gov, it was a half cocked mssion all along...

"I’ve ordered the immediate return of all New Hampshire National Guard from Washington DC. They did an outstanding job serving our nation’s capital in a time of strife and should be graciously praised, not subject to substandard conditions."
