In a CNN interview, Demcoratic Rep. Steve Cohen made an egregious accusation that because of its conservative majority, 75 percent of the National Guard might be inclined to attack during Joe Biden’s inauguration.
.@RepCohen on his concerns w/ the National Guard securing the Inauguration: “The [National] Guard is 90 some-odd percent male; and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden … there are probably not more than 25% of the people there protecting us that voted for Biden” pic.twitter.com/ofQfLuCw8I

“You know, I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent, I believe, male; and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden,” he said.
“The other 75 percent are in the class that would be, the large class of folks, who might want to do something. And there were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution and to protect and defend who didn’t do it who were in the insurrection, so it does concern me,” he continued. “The suspect group is large.”
Appearing on Hannity Monday night, Leo Terrell had something to say about it.
“You can expect the democrats to play the race card for the next four years as long as we allow them to and we can’t,” he said.
“What that congressman said is outright ludicrous. National Guard, the military, they have a commitment to our country and to God and for him to make the assumption, just because officers in the military express their First Amendment right and vote for a particular candidate that they’re not going to defend the other guy,” he continued.
“Dan Bongino had nothing in common with Barack Obama but that man would’ve taken a bullet for Barack Obama. It is outright crazy to make the false assumption that who you vote for will depend on your loyalty to the Commander in Chief,” he urged. “It makes no sense whatsoever.”
“I’m going across this country. I hope the democrats try to cancel me because I’ve got a big mouth. I’m going across this country all this year to talk about Trump’s program. I’m serious. This is ridiculous,” he added.
