The federal forces have been sent here to quell our protests to teach us a lesson. We'll never go red, so there are no votes to lose. Rather, middle and southern states get to watch the violence-porn, which amps up their inane worship of the slavering orange dotard despot and totalitarianism in general. When we sue the feds, it plays into 45's portrayal of us as unhinged lefties. (Actually, he may not be intelligent enough for this, but someone's pulling the strings.)
