  1. If it were Black or Muslim people doing this it would have been shut down in about two minutes flat.

      @Jeff Dees Jeff seriously you believe that if there was a black protest yesterday on the capital that the national guard would have been called in you really jeff believe the police would have been taking selfies with those black protesters?

      @Jeff Dees Jeff you think it would take 2 hours to get the national guard for a black protest?

    • KAye Mobile Detailing | January 7, 2021 at 10:14 PM | Reply

      @Jeff Dees honestly you just said it in retrospect it’s always that for white people but for black people they plan as you saw all summer they planned for every event no matter how small with a great show of force

    • @KAye Mobile Detailing You’re probably right on both of those points. I just don’t believe there would have been a “massacre “ or heads blown off it was antifa or BLM. I say that based on the police response to the riots last summer. And that cop who took the selfie should be fired.

      @Cole Cole Burned Dow half the country? Now that’s fake news.

    How would they respond. Well just look at America’s history.

  3. agreed this domestic terrorism. Every single one of these lawbreakers need to feel the full weight of the law

  4. This is a DISGRACEFUL day and will haunt me.

    • Lincoln Lloyd Redley | January 7, 2021 at 7:33 AM | Reply

      I didn’t celebrate BLM burnings, looting or rioting.

      I did often caution of likely instances of BLM being framed, which has proven true.

      One size does not fit all.

      I’m afraid that just won’t do.

      But I thought your camp celebrated your distinction.

    • White Nationalism has never been defeated in the United States. Even after the Civil War there was never a reckoning with white nationalism it was celebrated with confederate memorials from coast to coast that remain to this day. The United States is at a cross roads. Will white nationalism finally be defeated? Is this your land AND my land? We don’t know yet, there are difficult times ahead.

    • It will be better

    • Shame that it requires a conscience and a working heart to haunt the ones actually responsible.

    • It happened on my birthday.

  5. If any Muslim was there imagine how this proud boy reacted

  6. Andrew Salvador | January 7, 2021 at 2:13 AM | Reply

    Any law enforcement officer who is found to be assisting or facilitating in the advancement of the protesters should be held accountable and prosecuted. Period.

    • @Forever Remain Nameless not what i said …i agree with you whole heartedly…

    • Plain and Simple they were scared! That’s who is protecting the capital ?

    • @Judi Thomas Police were lifting barricades and taking selfies with the domestic terrorists. They weren’t scared, they were complicit. If these were black or god forbid muslims they’d have been shot in the face simply for breathing on the street across from the Capitol Building and you know it.

    • From the police and the politicians who aided and supported this …….they are complicit in this!

      Paid leave vacation?. 2weeks on our dime. And murder one of there own kinda love the irony of it lmao🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  7. Publicartprints urbanart | January 7, 2021 at 2:14 AM | Reply

    Those in law enforcement that were complicit should be charged.

  8. Cordell Senior | January 7, 2021 at 2:14 AM | Reply

    So beautifully articulated by this woman.

  9. “Tragically Confused” WOW! More Brittany please.

  10. If BLM had gone to the CB it would have been a blood bath, simple truth.

    • Yup ,, racist cops terrorist let there terrorist go in the white house with guns and pipe b and the cops and who ever was involved should be in jail

    • @Sarah white lives matter😂😅🤧

  11. Now the world see how law enforcement play apart of white supremacy. Like come on people this is not new. But would it ever change?

  12. Miguel Hernandez | January 7, 2021 at 2:53 AM | Reply

    It would been known as “The [ULTIMATE] Capitol Hill Massacre”.

  13. It’s all coming full circle. This is what black people have been talking about since….. forever. The double standards for us!

    No.
    SURELY, “The Capitol Hill Massacre” [chapter 2].

      ​@Bidenforthenext8years Pleasewearamask Crazy isn’t it? Republican voters storming the Capitol Hill with CONFEDERATE FLAGS!!! Abraham Lincoln would turn in his grave 😢 And even after that this senator from Missouri continued with his dirty objection tactics because he thinks that he can appeal to exactly this kind of people in future elections 🤬
      This party needs to vanish. I don’t mean that they need to replace their politicians, no I mean it has to vanish from the political landscape, the republican party has proven to be unfit for offices. If the decent and reasonable conservatives who still exist struggle to vote for democrats then they should vote for libertarians or a new 3rd party.

  15. They would quickly open fire 🔥 claiming to ‘fear’ for their lives

    Let’s face everyone and their dog knows that the bodies would be piled head high.

    The guest speaks eloquently, and with honesty. So sad that she is correct.

    • Maybe she will get noticed for a well spoken black woman by Candice Owen’s pack of clowns. What she says puts Candice words in check.

    • @G K Agreed, but CO also checks herself everytime she opens her mouth. She’d do well to heed the following:

      “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt” – Abraham Lincoln

  19. The protestors were walking around there like they was on school field trip.

    Steve Schmidt tweeted yesterday; “If this was a BLM protest, drone strikes would have occured.”
