Well of the several hundred people inside the building most walked in the front entrance or were let in by the Capitol Police. This is the first “storming of a building” were the vast majority of those doing the storming only walked in the designated areas and moved on when asked.
The trouble makers were at most a few dozen. There was zero preparation by the police around the building for anything more than busloads of tourist. The main “riot line” was a bunch of bicycle cops with maybe half a dozen in riot gear. I’ve seen far more police hardware on the ground for small riots in Berkeley.
On multiple occasions people trying to cause trouble or criminal damage were stopped by others. Now you wont find MAGA people at a BLM/Anifa marches but there were a hell of a lot of BLM/Anifa people in all the places there was violence going on inside the Capitol. An odd coincidence. But there seemed an suspiciously large number number of people in casseur garb in the building. Not the usual MAGA attire.
If you watch some of the Antifa /BLM video from Seattle or Portland then you will see what a real riot is like. They want people dead. And have killed a number of people and very seriously hurt many many dozens of people. And whole blocks of both cites have been destroyed.
This was a very convenient situation created by a very small number of fringe people some of whom it seems where not at the White House demo.
Very convenient. Those five states with unfeasible large turnouts and voting patterns immediately forgotten.
As for the people arrested and charged. I can guarantee you that they will not have the very long rap sheets for domestic violence, sexual assault and other violent offense the Atfia / BLM guys who commit violence have. In the BLM case almost three quarters of them. Just like their “martyrs”. Violent abusers and rapists. Those arrested yesterday who hurt cops will go to jail. With the full agreement of the vast majority of those at the march. Bet you did not see the video of the people who were not doing the fighting making sure any cops on the ground were OK and helping them up.
As for the video highlights you’ve seen in the MSM. Like all edited video they fit the media narrative but not what actually happened. Just like with George Floyd, The narrative is that he was choked to death, thats what the video “showed”. Not the actual fentanyl OD cardiac arrest which is what he actually died of. No physical trauma on body. Funnily enough my reaction after a few second of the first public Floyd video was, that’s an OD. Looked just like all the other OD’s I’ve seen. Just one of the many life skills you learn living in a city run by Progressive Democrats for decades. An ability to tell exactly what the street junkie has OD’ed on. A useful skill if there is PCP or meth involved.
So all in all yesterday is just another day of high stakes political theater surrounded by a miasma of very deliberate MSM lies. So business as usual. I dont remember a big deal being made about the invasion of the Capitol during the Kavanaugh hearing by several hundred protestors. They invaded the office areas too. They caused quiet a near riot in the main hearings for a while. But the reporting of that incident in the MSM was all the usual lies as well. Some psycho bint from Palo Alto who magically remembers decades later a supposed assault which she could remember none of the basic factual details about was suddenly a Star Witness who Must Be Believed. She made at least $500K from those lies.
