    This news is appalling and I know that there is absolutely nothing funny about what's going on in the video here, But I honestly laughed when I saw the part where the guy is using the barricade as a "battering ram". 😅 4:06

    The amount of bloodshed that would occur if a BLM protest even broke a window would be comparable to 9/11.

    The police underestimated the crowd in exactly the same way the government repeatedly underestimate Trump’s ability to sow chaos (and refusal to hold him responsible).

    I genuinely can't decide if it was so easy due to... (1) The cops supporting the cause of the crowd (or "because they are white"-type arguments) (2) The crowd was allowed inside order to sway public opinion in favour of the recent censorship and online purges. (3) It was a tactical decision by the cops to pen the crowd inside the building, and that would make the situation easier to neutralise with as few casualties as possible. All three are plausable.

    Of course they treated it as such ... FBI had information prior of unrest ... this was a SETUP! They the LEFT wanted the people to breach! Why you say? Because they wanted to have reason to disrupt this important hearing (which did change MANY senators direction that day) .. it also gave reason to possibly impeach and to use 25th amendment! The mayor herself signed a letter REFUSING extra help! Oh snd by the way ANTIFA and BLM activists were also on scene inciting riot behavior - yes proud boys and other right wing activists were the ones doing most damage ... but ANTIFA and BLM incited the rioting and breaching ... don’t believe me watch John Sullivan’s 40 minute video. Also do your research on other videos not seen in main stream media ! Go to Mayer bowsers Twitter account and see the letter she signed and posted on January 5th. Don’t worry chief of police was told to delay and he’s not hurting financially by resigning. Yes they the left wanted this seige

    Trump did not call for the National Guard- that’s proof enough that he supported the storming of the capitol. R.i.P. to the police officer who died that day. 😢 Shame on Trump for letting all this happen. A bit more than 30 years ago, there were equally bad riots in my country, Germany. One day, the mob tried to storm the KGB office in Dresden, East Germany. Putin was head of office back then. He went out and shouted a clear message to the protestors: „I urge you to stay away from our property. My comrades are heavily armed, and I have given orders to defend this building.“ And the protestors were like: „Understandable, have a good day“. They turned around and left, no one got hurt. We all know that Trump welcomed this attack, though he denies it. But when he denies it, we should ask: „Where was he then? Why didn‘t he take action to de-escalate the situation?“ The answer is: because he is no leader. Not even a bad one. Just totally unprofessional.

    I'm old enough to remember that time when black-block antifa and blm laid siege to the federal courthouses and statues for 3 months. Oh yeah and there was that time that the 'mostly peaceful' protestors burned entire cities to the ground, killed, looted and beat people for months on end with great encouragement from the democrat leaders. Seems like it was... well.. about 6 months ago. There was also that time during the summer when nearly every corporate/entertainment/political entity massively funded extreme riots across every inch of the country for months... I remember and if I recall correctly, that still is the worst domestic terrorism this country has seen since 9/11.

Not only them but off duty police in and outta state partook in the fascist mob storm, too. They were out for blood, there's photo evidence out there of them ready to take hostages, all this on Trump's order. And that order included going after Pence and his wife and daughter who were there that day, too. Bc to Trump and his cult they're traitors in not aiding the fascist coup lol.

    I hate the motive the police let them in. If you watch the videos you see the police fighting them.

    DEMOCRACY REFORM Biden Administration and Congressional Democrats must urgently protect America, and save American Democracy, from the next Trump, rightwing extremists and rightwing conspiracists. Roman Republic died and our Republic will die also. 45% Republicans who agree with Capitol terrorists are all a clear and imminent danger to the Republic and to our Democracy.

    Now in 2016 to 2020 they told the democratic side to stop being snowflakes and accept who's in office. Now in 2021, guess who looks like the biggest snowflakes in the country after their candidate lost......Lol America is a land of self-righteous hypocrites.
