Rep. Karen Bass Can Only Imagine If 'They Had Been Black Lives Matter Protests’ | Deadline | MSNBC


  1. At one point, it was like some officers were Tour Guides. SMH! They were escorting the goons out ever so delicately. Then the mob looked like they were tourists or on a field trip. Just walking through the halls and taking pictures.
    This is America!

    1. @michael boultinghouse No, we will be weeding out the rotten trash. Watch! Build back better!

    2. @The Influence of Many all those cops you defund? I doubt they will join you antifa traitors. We patriots welcome their skills..they will be expert at destroying you traitors. so WEED AWAY!

    1. @Mutton Chops I think everybody is racist. Especially people who always focus on it. Just like the attack on the Capitol. It’s not about the country. But the color of My skin , If it was my skin color,… Never mind the country was attacked.

    2. @michael boultinghouse You are the problem with white America. You think Black people asking to be treated the same as white is black supremacy because you don’t want your white privilege taken way so see equality as a threat. That is why these white supremacist are rioting because they can’t accept non-white people have the power to influence elections too.

    3. @Pièrre Calderone poor little Pierre. Poor poor pitiful thing. He’s had such a hard time. Nothing is fair. That’s not fair to Pierre.

  2. Does anyone know of any arrests? I haven’t heard of any. If this was Mexican or black; many would be arrested and DEAD.

    1. @Sweger Shanna for the possession of contraband and weapons inside the Federal government premise. That is a felony. Another was filed to the court for the trespassing without authorization.

    2. @Sweger Shanna Breaking into the capitol building while the vice presidwnt is there with a secret service detail is a felony.

    3. It was so sad only 50 people arrested that day. They arrested over 500 people on BLM protesters and they were peaceful. But we’re blame for bad actors that were planted. This superiority complex is sickening.

    1. @Mark Shannon Kirkland oh it’s exactly the “roost” he thinks.
      When jesus was crucified satan jumped for joy. Had the devil known
      That he played right into gods plan
      He wouldnt have done it.

  3. We all know the answer, those police cannot shoot into the crowd because they could end up hitting a cousin or coworker..

    1. @Randy Couch Protesting/Rioting over loss of life and unjustified brutality vs Losing an election and defiling our nations leaders senate floors? I mean truly, which side do you think is more justified? Don’t be coy.. too many like you..

    2. @Randy Couch Protesting over the safety of you’re races futures and freedoms vs. fools willing to die over a single mans lie.. it’s like educating a middle school kids explaining reality to you.


    1. And the Politically Correct ignorance continues.
      And the American people are quickly tiring of your woke mentalities which are full of hypocrisy.
      The ridiculous extent to which this liberal culture war is taking America is going to end.
      And it is being faced today, and will be contested everyday going forward.

    1. What is called white privilege?? Simple answer “ the two solitudes that are at the roots of your country”.

    1. Really ? I could’ve sworn there was blm riots all summer and there was no blood bath . Actually I recall politicians ordering police to stand down . Weird maybe I m getting old and my memory is failing

    2. @A L Not necessarily blood baths and I hope this part of history never repeats itself but those pre 60s peaceful MLK marches was pretty brutal….. Those cops were not playing back in those days…..I can only imagine if the million man march in the 90s reacted like trump protesters……LORD HAVE MERCY!!!!

  5. It was a coup attempt. Why did capital police refuse assistance from other law enforcement agencies? They were bought by Trump! It failed!!

    1. How can you have a coup attempt?
      Explain that one to me?
      Biden isn’t President yet.
      The REAL coup attempts have been going on for 4 years now, and it’s the Socialist Democrats who’ve been doing that.

    1. @Mark Shannon Kirkland you mean those same blm protestors bombed in dc so donnie doll hands could hold a baby bible ?

    2. @Mark Shannon Kirkland actually the police chief is white and has now resigned! The individual officers who were holding open doors should follow. The same police whose unions funded the racist in chief and held its Christmas party at Trump Hotel, nothing going down there hey!!

    3. @Kevin Jackson Portland 2020, federal Buildings attacked by the left. If you can please have the same energy for both sides thank you.

  6. The capitol police force needs to be completely replaced, and those present, held accountable for complicity.

    1. Really? I could’ve sworn politicians ordered police to stand down while they were looting all the stores in La … weird

  7. I bet parents all over the world are changing their minds about sending their kids to school in America because it seems stupidity is contagious here
