National Guard locks down the Alamo, Bush warns protestors not to mess with Texas

The Alamo is a sacred site when it comes to both American and Texas history, and the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is warning those who wish to do the site harm that it will be defended.

“The Alamo is the Shrine of Texas Liberty. And it will be defended,” tweeted George P. Bush, who just so happens to be the Texas Land Commissioner. “Rest assured we have already deployed, for several weeks and will continue to do so, the Alamo Rangers in partnership with SAPD, the Department of Public Safety and The National Guard to protect this sacred site. My message to the protesters is simple: Don’t Mess with The Alamo.”

Bush then shared a photo of law enforcement and military personnel posted up at the site.

From the beginning of the nationwide protests that quickly devolved into rioting, pillaging and violence, the Alamo was a hotbed site.

Initially defended by a small number of officers and armed counter protesters, law enforcement have doubled up when it comes to keeping the Alamo safe.

While a cenotaph near the Alamo was damaged with paint, police have increased their defensive operations to prevent anyone getting to the Alamo itself.

Twitter user Josh Fiechtner posted a video of the Alamo site two days ago, showing off the barricades and National Guard  standing between wrongdoers and the historical site.

“San Antonio ain’t screwing around when it comes to protecting the Alamo,” he wrote.
