Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has refused to play along with the Democratic Party’s attempt at political theater ahead of Tuesday’s State of the Union.

With President Biden set to stand before the nation and deliver his message, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s metal fencing was erected once again around the U.S. Capitol — Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said it was being done “out of an abundance of caution in light of the upcoming State of the Union Address, and the possibility of demonstrations in the next couple of weeks.”

In addition, up to 700 National Guard troops will be deployed to assist local police, the message being clear that the Biden administration views Americans who may disagree with their political agenda as potential insurrectionists — with ZERO evidence to support that concern.

DeSantis took to Twitter Monday to clarify his stance: “Last week, the Biden Administration requested the assistance of State National Guards to deploy to Washington D.C. I have rejected this request — there will be no @FLGuard sent to D.C. for Biden’s State of the Union.”

While the details behind that request are unknown, with the total number of troops being deployed reportedly around 700 were all 50 states asked to lend a hand? The question matters in the sense that the White House had to know that the chances of DeSantis playing along were slim, so why ask? Unless the request was across the board… or politically motivated.

With barricades in place, and the early money on Biden’s State of the Union address being among the shortest in recent history, the beefed-up security supports the Democratic Party’s ongoing insurrection narrative.

There is a trucker convoy looking to reach the capital before the speech, though it remains to be seen just how impressive the turnout is. ABC News reported that “a group of right-wing truckers called the ‘People’s Convoy,’ began a cross-country haul from California to D.C. to protest COVID-19 mandates and restrictions.”

“The United States Capitol Police have also been working in tandem with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies including D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department, the United States Park Police, the United States Secret Service and the National Guard on a ‘security plan to prevent any disruption to the important work of Congress,'” the network reported, citing Chief Manger.

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy suggested a better use for Pelosi’s metal fencing and the troops.

“Those National Guard and that fencing should be in America but they should be along our borders not around the people’s house,” McCarthy said during an appearance on Fox. “The people’s house should be open to the people.”

The rejection from DeSantis set the stage for opportunistic zealots like Florida state Rep. Andrew Learned to take a pot shot at the Republican governor — the irony being that the Democratic lawmaker essentially besmirches Americans as potential insurrectionists while bemoaning divisiveness.

Naturally, the media had to play their part in the theatrics… while attacking the American people:

On the other hand, DeSantis had plenty of support for not playing along with the Democrats’ political gamesmanship, as seen here:
