  1. Why is anyone surprised? These are the same terrorists who hatched a plot to kidnap and murder the Governor of Michigan. They are as treasonous a bunch as they come.

    1. @Jillian Copeland yes Jillian your offspring are going to look back and say… Why didn’t you fight for our freedom grandma.. It was so obvious that you voted for the swamp creatures because you couldn’t think and now we are all trapped. You silly blind fool

    1. @Pete Smith as much? Not even in the same league.
      What the right did was domestic terrorism. Treason.
      Not the same thing. Besides, this has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats.
      Trump is Trump, he is a wanna be Dictator, he told his followers exactly what to do, just like Charles Manson, and they did it.
      Now they will suffer the consequences.
      The majority of the American people have spoken, Trump lost. Game over.

    2. This is mild compared to BLM & Antifa’s burning, looting & killing hundreds for 8 month. Biased Media praising Dem..Bye Cheaters…

    3. @Lanuiiohu Sukikiya While it may be mild in terms of damage, it’s much more worrisome because this was initiated by the President. It was also against a building the VP and senators were in. That’s a bit more serious than the federal building in Portland or a police building. Not to mention the guy with the zip tie handcuffs and whoever built the gallows outside. And all that while the President just sat there in his office watching it all unfold on TV like it was a Sunday football game. That’s crazy stuff.

      If Trump had gone down with his supporters and actually protested out front of the capitol building, that would have been incredible. But no, he went home and watched it unfold while people did his dirty work.

    1. @Jock Young how many dollars in damage did they do ,billions. If it was all legal than most cost would be overtime for cops. All businesses would of made out like bandits. To bad it went the other way.

    2. @Indy Dog I’m a patriot and a combat veteran and I stand against you and your sedition. The other real patriots that serve in the armed forces, law enforcement, and as civilians will likewise stand against you, just like they did on January 6th.

  2. As stated before: “A wise man can play the part of a clown, but a clown can’t play the part of a wise man”. (Malcolm X)

  3. This is exactly what Michael Moore reported a couple days ago. The US capitol attack was a dry run. Homeland Security, FBI, CIA– all hands on deck! As we’ve seen in the capitol attack, some of these insurrectionists are trained ex-military types.

    1. @Todd Chase sound like a fox news puppet ..marxist, radical left, caravans lining up..muh communism ..child please, youre the one who is brainwashed spewing right wing memes

    2. @Todd Chase After everything we have seen, there are a number of right-wing folks who deserve the harshest treatment possible. The whole playbook of antiterrorism used abroad should now be applied at home. You know what that means; I will be laughing my head off at you bunch.

    3. @John Swanger that’s because it was a protest not a coup attempt….you lefties are extremely dangerous people…. you’re ready to build gas chambers……over a your own hype…. meanwhile you spent the last four years burning cites and laying siege to Seattle , killing cops …all in the name of peaceful protesting…..

      You people are insane, dangerous and you embracing hate which will lead to your justify murdering millions of people….. perfect Commrad

    1. @Neal Fairbanks
      I see that flag now and read “tread on me with your studded boots, daddy. Tread on poc even harder, though!”

    2. Not much of a plan. Like everything the Donald does, it was incompetent. Something we should all be grateful for.

      Whoever comes after Trump might not be so incompetent. They’d run a coup like a proper military operation.

      I bet Putin and other dictators were facepalming and laughing hard at Trump`s failed coup. But…

      A failed coup is just a dress rehearsal. Like Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch, which everyone thought was a hilarious failure.

    1. @David Gray
      Content creators delete comments,in this case it’s someone at MSNBC.

      Doesn’t have t9 be a threat,just has to be undesired.

    2. @Gabriel Gonzales
      Too much military might to not be taken seriously,but the image has taken a beating.
      No longer can America wag it’s finger claiming to be a wholesome nation.
      Countries won’t be listening to America’s opinion on many things anymore.

    3. @Dane Woods
      It has,the planet is losing life swiftly.Many species have gone extinct in the last 400 years of Caucasian rule.

  4. “It’s gonna be wild.” –Donald Trump. Sounds like someone knew what was gonna happen ahead of time.

    1. Why do you think Barr left early? Could the events of January 6 have been a bridge too far even for Barr?

    2. Trump’s Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments (after BLM protests), June 26, 2020:

      “Section One PURPOSE. The first duty of government is to ensure domestic tranquility…

      “These criminal acts are frequently planned and supported by agitators who have traveled across State lines to promote their own violent agenda. These radicals shamelessly attack the legitimacy of our institutions and the very rule of law itself.”
      HYPOCRITE!!!

    3. This is mild compared to BLM & Antifa’s burning, looting & killing hundreds for 8 month. Biased Media praising Dem..Bye Cheaters…

    4. Trump went on a firing and reshuffling spree at the Pentagon, about a month in advance, and suddenly cut Biden out of the Pentagon briefings. Yeah, this was planned wall in advance.

    1. Remember Trump’s response last summer?

      Trump’s Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments (after BLM protests), June 26, 2020:

      “Section One PURPOSE. The first duty of government is to ensure domestic tranquility…

      “These criminal acts are frequently planned and supported by agitators who have traveled across State lines to promote their own violent agenda. These radicals shamelessly attack the legitimacy of our institutions and the very rule of law itself.”
      HYPOCRITE!!!

    1. @90ok you look up the video footage of the coup attempt that was done by the Trump cult at the request of their cult leader Donald Trump and you tell me if they could handle that mess or if they needed the national guard lol I wait right here but you won’t be back

  5. Why does it actually take violence for authorities to take threats from these seditious people seriously? It is ridiculous that action isn’t being taken to twart open insurrection.

    1. @pizzahotdog mustard Please. We only have to arrest enough of you to set an example. You traitors are cowards and weaklings by nature. Can’t even take a hint of resistance or tear gas without crapping your pants.

    2. @Drake Fire literally think about it. Who has divided you and fooled you for years upon years? This isn’t about trump. You’ve been tricked and dooped. A house divided will not stand. The two party system has to go. Call people traitors all you want. Belittle others all you want. Say your right and they’re wrong all you want. We both know the true oppressor that you have been tricked to blindly defend. The deep state

    3. @pizzahotdog mustard Yeah. Who was the one who started Birtherism?

      Trump.

      Who was the one who ordered tear gas launched against peaceful protesters so he could take a photo op with an upside down Bible?

      Trump.

      Who was the one that spoke the lowest, the most vile, and most pitiful members of our society, while making it seem like their idea’s had a place in the 20th century?

      Trump.

      And the worst part is, Trump is the Symptom. The disease?

      It’s you. It’s you and yours, who’ve listened to Fox, to Rush, to infowars, for years, drinking the coolaid completely, until there is nothing left.

  6. Pro trump: chanting the song “We’re not gonna take it”
    FBI: well, then take these federal charges and hand cuffs

    1. Sounds more like another ATTEMPT on DEMOCRACY and the RULE of LAW. Trump knows what this is he continues to manipulate his minions….He will do anything to Stay in Power. Becauase he knows he’ll be put in PRISON as a TRAITOR>

    2. That is usually the point when the US embassador or representative supports the military take over of power to “restore democracy and order”.

    1. Lmao it looks like an obvious power move..theyll only call it terrorism if it assists their own agenda. In the Bush era (especially post 9/11) everything and anything (from non-americans mostly) was called terrorism so they dont look bad when they invade Iraq..this event is america vs america which only means Ls for the people currently running america. Media been playing games for the last year but idm since “You can fool all the people some of the times, but you cant fool some people all the time” – Bob Marley

    2. Carrying a gun is perfectly legal — protest or otherwise. It’s called the 2nd Amendment — look it up.

  7. “50 state capitols”
    That’s all of them. That’s literally every single one of the state capitols. You could have just said all.

    1. That was the call that I saw being discussed on social media – for everyone who supports the Trump-inspired attempt to overthrow the election results to go to their own local State Capitol, fully armed, with an implied idea that the events of Jan 6th could be repeated right across the nation – and that by so doing, there would simply not be enough effective law enforcement forces such as the National Guard available to deal with it, whereupon the Trumpists would somehow seize power, or at least cause a whole lot of trouble.
      What’s probably still to be determined is to what extent this plan for a coordinated national insurrection will be taken up in each State, and what sort of numbers might be involved.
