While Americans were fighting over toilet paper back in March 2020, was the California National Guard preparing an F-15 fighter jet for a “domestic mission?” In this clip, Pat Gray answers this question.
“California National Guard members say a fighter jet was put on standby for a ‘possible domestic mission’ last year, raising concerns that the military could be used to disperse protesters in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic,” Fox News reported.
According to the report, four California National Guard sources told the Los Angeles Times that commanders were concerned citizens violating the stay-at-home orders as well as panic-buying incidents that in some cases led to violence at grocery stores.
“So you put an F-15 fighter jet on notice…have the pilot stand by…because we may need a mission to Kroger?” Pat joked.
The report went on to say that an F-15C fighter was put on alert, which “raised concerns among Guard members that the jet could be used to ‘buzz’ crowd,” the sources alleged.
“Buzz the crowd? Over paper products?” Pat and Keith asked rhetorically. Pat raised questions about the constitutionality of the incident.
