ETA: [Big, humongous, tinfoil hat on my head] Are we sure the violence is really from the right, and not from antifa types that embedded themselves in the protest to impersonate "right wing militias"? It wouldn't take many of them to start something, and then get some on edge real right wing protestors to just lemming along. I might be reading too much Kurt Schlichter.

Some of the "Trump Supporters" have hammer/sickle tattoos on their hands and been social media tagged at antifa protests elsewhere.


EDIT:  Evidently it's not a hammer/sickle.  It's a tattoo called an Outsider's Mark from a video game called Dishonored.

That's almost exactly out of Schlichter's latest novel.

Not to completely buy into my own paranoia, but there seemed to be a much greater than normal number of Gadsden flags than at other protests I've seen.

All that *expletive deleted*it they piled up won't really burn; they know that but don't seem to know what to do next.  (helpful hint: you put an old tire doused with a little kerosene on top and burn *that*)

Unconfirmed reports that the worst of the protestors are Antifa wolves in MAGA clothing.
Interesting...
What we have here is failure to communicate.

Half a year of cities burning under the guise of “peaceful protesting” and you get this.

Major news networks seem to have no problem calling this a riot.  Unbiased reporting indeed.

This guy looks a little more antifa than trumper with the hippie hair and skinny jeans.

Capitol police shot a female protester in the neck.



This has video. Who is the guy in the back with a weapon? Looks like glass on the floor.  A few questions here and the truth will never come out.

Unconfirmed reports of pipe bomb found at RNC HQ, suspicious package at DNC HQ, both evacuated.

The reports are confirmed:

An explosive device was found at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee in Washington and the nearby headquarters of the Democratic National Committee was evacuated after the discovery of a suspicious package on Wednesday, according to three people briefed on the discoveries.

The device that was found at the R.N.C. was a pipe bomb that was successfully destroyed by a bomb squad, according to an official for the R.N.C.

The package at the D.N.C. has yet to be identified, according to a top Democrat briefed on the matter who was not authorized to speak publicly about it.

Precisely why we need to stop relying so heavily on social media to "fact check" what we can and cannot see. Twitter needs to be destroyed, and not because they locked out Trump.

One woman who was shot during the unrest in the Capitol has died, Washington's Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to HuffPost. The department could not confirm if she was shot by law enforcement.

Can't confirm, or won't confirm at this time? Were LE weapons fired? That's a good place to start.

What we need now is a good, old fashioned alien invasion.
“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Until this very moment, I did not know that the District of Columbia has a National Guard unit.  I would have thought they were too small to staff a NG unit.

Can't confirm, or won't confirm at this time? Were LE weapons fired? That's a good place to start.

They won't attribute the death to law enforcement until an autopsy is done and the bullet recovered (if it's even still in her).

Kinda wondering if the Right will lay off the cop fellatio when it's apparent that "just following orders" is the strategy, and the legal system will allow them to kill Righties with the same impunity as Lefties.

Pics make it appear that the cop shot through the glass, which would have been a blind shot since it is opaque.  Though it is possible that the protesters had already broken the window prior to the gunshots, I admit that.  Regardless, shooting someone through an intact and functioning barrier is not a legitimate claim for self defense IMO.

Gotta say... I don't really get it.  What did that accomplish?  How did today advance the cause of the people briefly seized the capitol building?

Dude was a Democrat not long ago.  And he's a New Yorker.

Honestly I don't think it's possible to be a conservative and live within 500 miles of the Atlantic Ocean.  Those people over there have things so tossed up and over they might as well be extras in that South Park introretrogestion episode.

Yeah, but he just fanned the flames.  Any self destruction they did to themselves.  If he was faking it, just shows how weak the party really was.  They were trying to anoint Jeb Bush of all people.
