Cotton: Deploy “Infantry And Airborne” On Protesters

Politico reports:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is calling for the use of the military — including an Army division that specializes in air assault operations — to quell the violent protests that have erupted in cities across the country.

Cotton, often mentioned as a potential 2024 Republican presidential candidate, made his push in tweets and on morning television, arguing that “anarchy, rioting, and looting needs to end tonight.”

“If local law enforcement is overwhelmed and needs backup, let’s see how tough these Antifa terrorists are when they’re facing off with the 101st Airborne Division,” Cotton said in one tweet, referencing the Army division nicknamed the “Screaming Eagles.”
