Republicans are warming up to the idea of martial law, you should be very afraid of that

Because martial law is something that is usually seen in third world countries seeking to become a dictatorship. Earlier this week, convicted liar Michael Flynn was released from prison after having been sprung via a pardon -- but wasted no time in his bizarre demands. In a series of demands, he suggested to Donald Trump that he suspend the constitution and declare martial law over the United States of America. Such an unprecedented move would almost immediately cause nationwide hysteria considering something of the such has never really happened in the United States before. But now, a top Pentagon nominee appears to also be warming up to the idea of martial law -- simply in an effort to try and overturn the victory of Joe Biden in the election. https://twitter.com/CNNPolitic...

Instead of steadily addressing the comments, Stanfield instead chimed back on social media that he can what he wishes on his social media regardless of how others feel about it.
