The following article, Luxury Buildings Hire Armed Guards In Preparation For Election Day Madness, was first published on Flag And Cross.
The ultra-rich in the city of New York have been preparing for the possibility of civil unrest on Election Day next, hiring armed guards to watch over luxury buildings in Manhattan.
Managers over at the Time Warner Center, located on Columbus Circle — where penthouse apartments are only a measly $62.5 million — are deploying off-duty police officers armed with “submachine guns” to keep an eye on things.

Other top buildings, such as 220 Central Park South, which is home to hedge funder Ken Griffin’s $238 million condo, say they are already well guarded but will take extra precautions, like keeping entrances locked at night, and only open to residents.

We, unlike many nations, get to choose our leaders, and thus, the direction we go as a country. But now, thanks to the hate mongers in the mainstream media who have stirred up the masses to hate President Donald Trump with false narratives, folks on the left have come to see the destruction of property and violence against those who disagree with them as acceptable means of dealing true ideological diversity.
What a shame.
