  1. When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

      @Jack Nguyen The rioters not only broke a lot of laws, they e.g. also broke windows. The police used tear gas. Does that indicate a peaceful protest?

    • @Nebula Orion trump is my president. Obviously these people can t seem to pull their heads out of their buts and see the people of America dont want Biden or cumallover Harris I. The white house

      That was trump and he has proven that in every way today was all about him cuz hes not a good loser and he did lise

    • @Truth Seeker look closely at the photos, no Trumper would have a hammer and sickle tattoo on their hands. Anyone can wear a red hat and act a fool. But believe what you want, truly.

    • Maya Angelou had it right.

  2. cue the gambino: this is america.

    • @Machine Beard That is a lie! No one ever said that it was peaceful when people are getting shot and killed. We have always called the guilty ones out. BLM is not a rogue organization so we don’t paint them with a broad brush stroke. There are INDIVIDUALS who cloak themselves as being with BLM and those are the ones committing crimes and those are the ones we should condemn, NOT the entire movement.
      THIS is totally different. BLM didn’t try to storm the White House or the Capitol! They didn’t try to bring explosive devices in! They didn’t storm the halls, looking for people to attack or harm. No matter how you try to sugar coat this they ALL were wrong. They intentionally planned and plotted this riot. There was nothing spur of the moment borne of emotions about this. It was seditious and a sign of disrespect to our constitution and to our country.

    • @Red Flaman I know what y’all means, dimwit. Why would you suggest I shot somebody?

    • @prash patel Will all the news ancors and politicians telling people to take to the streets all last year be held accountable for literally millions in damage and hundreds of lost lives ? Plus if he said that it would be blasted everywhere we all know how they love to demonize anyone without a hive mind .

    • @L Erkins It seems you drink too much kool aid.

    • @Rubepublican I say you are brainwashed because, you think anyone who doesn’t interpret a situation like you, must be the enemy. When the news is reporting on peaceful BLM/ANTIFA protests with buildings on fire right behind them, and also calling what is happening at the capitol terrorism I’m smart enough to smell bullshit.

  3. Ironically their biggest enemy thrives within their borders.

      @James Ricesome are, sure. But a Democrat generalizing Trump supporters as all being gullible fools is a bit hypocritical. You Democrats just elected a man who passed the 94 crime bill that effects nearly all of us, who’s mentor was James Eastland, who he called a great and wonderful man, and who was called a die hard racist by his VP. All year the CNN leftist news network refused to cover the protest/riots Portland, Seattle and Minneapolis, and when they did, referred to them as peaceful. Not to mention Joe’s treasonous affairs abroad. It’s hard to fathom people not liking a president so much that they’d vote for a decrepit man who is touted in racism

    • @Callentay That is what makes this place in time ironic. We are supposedly the World’s friend as we spread our idea of Democracy yet within the walls of our own country we have people who actually hate each other simply due to race and political parties.

    • @Lance McDaniel this entire debacle that is based on Trump’s repeated lies is all his fault.

    Me: Ahh the denial begins…

    • @MarloSoBalJr That is what I don’t understand, if most US citizens cared about quality of life why didn’t they vote for Sanders?

    • @DTD110865 Look, if “freedom” means going bankrupt because I need to go to a specialist, or letting people starve because they didn’t “pull themselves up by their bootstraps”; I’ll take my “ehvul socialist” country any day.

    • @Tyrion Wires he’s uniting far right wing deplorables but I do agree he’s uniting us against him.

    • @Justice Warrior By North American standards they are; economically which all the US seems to care about.

    • @Tanya Degurechaff yes I agree I like pence much more

    Funny how different the policing between this and the BLM protests. Shame on the US police

    • yes, Mayor immediately called the National guard on the peaceful white protesters, yet she let BLM burn and loot for months. That’s a shame.

    • Well racebaiter, when you storm the Capital and they hold a MACHINE GUN TO YOUR HEAD, you lay down and shut up.

      Before you post…

      1. Research
      2. Think
      3. Think some more

    I now see America in a different way…

    Not what the world taught it is.

    • Same…. Im embarrased for them…

    • Yes, today the America I grew up in and loved died like the Don Henley song!

      Hasin Ashraf, we were so busy trying to promote democracy around the world, but we neglected our own. Winston Churchill said it best, America reaches the right conclusion after it exhausts all other options. We’ll eventually get it right, but it’s going to take a long time. Trump attempted a coup de tat, and has failed, like he does at everything he tries.

      Its in the toilet now cuz he didnt do anything for the virus so maybe hes not so great like he thinks he is

    • @Justice Warrior what is your point. Any true American, both democrst and republican don’t condone this behavior foem either the far left and right. Stop trying to justify what happened today. It was wrong and you know it

    • @Sharon Azevedo the virus is a hoax. Suddenly no one has died from the flu or their original disease? Dramatically fewer deaths from diabetes, heart disease, or cancer but all covid deaths. Some people just are that easy to fool

    • @Renmarkable Rebeling against corruption in the name of freedom is how this country was founded. It is the opposite of treason.

    • @Peggy Duvall actually I seen lots of blacks among the Trump supporters today. Not that I care about skin color like you do.

  11. Relax America, after watching four years of Trump’s presidency, we in the rest of the first world are not surprised by this attempt to overthrow the incoming government.

    I’m expecting the US military to invade the US to install democracy at any time.🇺🇸😎

  14. “..all enemies, foreign and domestic..”

  15. The US would’ve invaded the US at this point to preserve democracy.

    • @Sudaka Mark Your comments don’t get (scrubbed) ours do. THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING

    • @cosmos5532 Brother of mine WHITE PEOPLE are not the only ones who just want to go to work and go home. Your comment is futile and irrelevant.
      White people are treated better and are privileged. Blacks, Hispanics, Asians etc are not…..that should tell you something.

    • @Sudaka Mark you are naive if you think America is doomed because of a few riots.

    • @Iggy Munhenzva it’s not true at all go to school

    • @0IIIIII you are naive if you think America is saved while Trump is in office.

Biden. Peace and everybody stay safe in ‘021.
