Soldiers Get Official Woke Participation Trophies for Being Deployed to D.C. During Inauguration

Washington, DC – January 19, 2021: National Guard troops and Police guarding the perimeter security fence at the U.S. Capitol and National Mall day before Joe Biden Inauguration. Entrance Checkpoint.

Well, it was bound to happen. Now even the army is getting meaningless, millennial-styled participation trophies.

Absurdly, D.C. National Guard soldiers are being handed an actual campaign ribbon for being part of Joe “Commander in Cheat” Biden’s occupational forces during and after his illicit inauguration.

Seriously! The army is getting a participation trophy! It is called the “Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon.”

Soldiers should be ashamed to even wear this joke of an award:

“In recognition of their service as part of the security mission at the U.S. Capitol and other facilities in Washington, D.C., before, during and after the 59th Presidential Inauguration, the District of Columbia National Guard plans to present all Soldiers and Airmen who took part in the mission one or both of the following decorations: the District of Columbia National Guard Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon and/or the District of Columbia Emergency Service Ribbon,” Air Force Lt. Col. Robert Carver, spokesman for the Virginia Air National Guard and director of Joint Task Force-DC Joint Information Center, said in a statement. “Both ribbons are District-level decorations. Plans for their presentation are not yet final. Other federal decorations are also being considered.”

While the Emergency Service Ribbon previously existed to honor Guard members who serve in support of a non-war emergency or crisis, the Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon is new, designed specially for troops from D.C. and the other 53 states and territories who participated in the 2021 deployment.

Biden called out 26,000 D.C. Nat’l Guard troops to protect him during his illicit ceremony. The “president” claimed that he needed all those soldiers because there were “threats.”

Yet… nothing happened, one short riot of a few hours notwithstanding.

Meanwhile, as Antifa caroused though the streets attacking people and destroying millions in private and public property during Trump’s 2016 inauguration, only 7,800 DCNG troops were deployed.
