You are looking in the wrong places.

Here is a video from a GOP lawmaker of Trump supporters fighting with Capitol police within the Capitol precincts.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I think it's a fair speculation to say that if these were Black Lives Matter supporters, half would have been already shot dead and the other half would have been arrested 30 min ago

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Disgusting. What is America coming to? Somehow if the Democrats had lost the election I can't see them going to such lengths to win at all costs. They respect for the laws of the country. Seems Trump and his supporters don't care about law unless it works for them; if not then do everything you can to get around it.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

This is really just all beyond f'ed up. Storming the capitol. I'm looking at photos of Senators and Congressmen being escorted by police safely out of the building, etc. right now. WTF.

If this isn't a huge wake-up call to the GOP as to just how dangerous Trump and "Trumpism" really is, and what a threat to democracy he is, I don't know what could be.

"The officer in the House chamber just told lawmakers they may need to duck under their chairs, adding that there are protestors in the rotunda of the US Capitol.

The doors are barricaded."

Republican congressman tweets: "This is a coup attempt"

Amid a breach of the U.S. Capitol by Pro-Trump protesters, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois, tweeted calling it a "coup attempt.""

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Jesus. I step away from the news for one hour to read with my son before his bedtime and come back to the news only to find that all hell has broken loose. I'm just... completely shocked.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

As a young friend in the UK says

''Never forget the armed thugs and domestic terrorists currently storming the Capitol in Washington DC, didn’t come from nowhere.
They are the end result of a carefully orchestrated strategy to destabilise the US, allowed to work by the power-greed and self-interest of politicians and media pundits, at least some of whom knew what Trump was and that his dog whistle fascism was very wrong.
There are many, many connections between Trump’s story and the people currently running the U.K. - not just similarities but the same shadowy figures, the same strategies, the same data harvesting and dark disinformation campaigns.''

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I'm seeing unconfirmed reports of antifa joining the Trump supporters. They do share the same enemy you know. Mainly the oligarchy, the revolution has begun.

Good thing I stock piled popcorn.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!!!
