    Obviously, the capital police didn’t train for when the mob aren’t black.

  2. Trillion dollar defense budget and some rag tag would-be militia members successfully stormed our Capitol??

    A joke.

  3. Good for Rep Jason Crow! A decent person who is representing all the good folks of this country. Thank You Sir!!!

    THEY ATTACKED A FEDERAL BUILDING AND , AND MOST ARE GOING HOME UNINJURED, WOW.

  7. “This is a significant statement” It’s a reasonable statement. He has committed treason. To not demonstrate that there are consequences for that will set a regrettable precedent and is an admission that your democracy has been defeated.

  8. The mob had been gathering for 24 hours; why were the defences so poorly prepared? If it was left-wingers or BLM would they have hesitated to open fire, I wonder?

    • Why do you have to wonder? We’ve only got hundreds of BLM/Antifa riots from last year as proof that the police stood down and let do whatever they pleased. You do realize that Portland alone had been under siege for months and is STILL experiencing trouble?

    • They wanted it to escalate to this so they can turn around and point fingers

    • They were prepared, that just sympathised with the rioters because they are fellow racists. The police literally allowed confederate flag waving traitors into a government building. Foes anybody remember why America fought for independence and how these people actually fought against America? Guess not, in a couple more hundred years maybe the hard right will be storming the capital waving ISIS flags? Anything seems possible now. Only in America (that’s an insult BTW)

      @Charlie C. Portland and Capital Hill are not the same.

    • If you’re wondering, let me help. There would be a few arrests, and a lot of people shot. Many Americans are too stupid to know who their real enemy is.

    Can’t wait to see the Martin Scorsese movie about this period in history. 🤦

  10. If this was carried out by a foreign power, we’d have declared war by now.

    • @Irondre Is that why DOZENS of police were killed in the BLM riots? Or how about the innocent kids that were killed? Oh, that’s right, liberal media didn’t report all that. Quit watching brainwashing media.

    • @TheRealUnholy yes Rick Wilson tweeted that today, he is hilarious, you should follow him on twitter, he despises Trump and the Trumpublicans, he left the party when Trump was elected

    • @Irondre – NOT TRUE …! PROPAGANDA ..!!!

    Impeach and remove and remove ANY POSSIBILITY of him trying this again

  12. They can literally do anything they want if they’re right wingers. Got it.

    • @RedemptivSinner Can you state what lies you’re talking about? I’ll bet you can’t.

    • @Open Minded you value the (insured) property of a business more than Democracy itself?

      Because make no mistake, THAT is what these idiots were trying to burn down today.

      Yes, over the course of 3-4 months of daily protests in dozens of cities, making over 1000 protests in total, around 1% did involve violence/arson, and probably closer to 10% involved looting.

      Stop pretending like BLM was going across the country putting entire cities to the torch, we all know its bullshit. Just more rhetoric from people who are scared to death of the very concept of equality.

    • @Edith MinALL CAPS gets your attention because obviously remembering events from a couple of months ago escapes you

    • @A M oh honey, I don’t use all caps until I realize that its the only way the other person understands. try again.

    Should’ve passed the 2000$ checks then all those people would be shopping at Walmart instead of swarming the building 🤷

  14. Everybody was in danger, both Dems and Republicans!! Trump was vying to take all of you out!! The Man is dangerous!! Who doesn’t get that yet?

  15. When rioters take down the American flag and put up a trump flag, that is extremely concerning

  16. Now other terrorist are going to see how easy it is to just break into the white house 🤦🏾‍♀️

    • @Little Mac they had nooses and lynches strung up, so yeah, that probably wasn’t just talk. I’m sure if they had the chance, some of them actually would’ve. It’s f*cking crazy the lengths these people will go to for a delusional man. Seems a lot like the start of a Fascist regime to me.

    • Lol white issues👿

      I saw a movie where they take down the white house…I forget the name

    • It’s never that easy they just let them break into the White House cause they stand by these kind of terrorist extremist. If it was BLM movement we wouldn’t even be able to get that close to the capitol

    • Yes, it’s a House (meaning a building) filled mostly with White people. But it’s not technically The White House.

  17. I thought there was a curfew? Why haven’t people been forced to move along?

    Obliviously, the Capitol police didn’t train for when the mob aren’t black.
