No, It was not Antifa or BLM.
The insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, was carried out by Trump supporters. No, it was not Antifa or BLM. No matter what Laura Ingrahm or Rush Limbaugh tells you. There is more than enough video evidence to prove this fact. Participants were proud to have been a part of the attack, and it is posted all over their social media accounts.
Not to mention they have been planning and promoting the event on January 6, 2021, for months. Details were planned on social media. They talked about what they would do and bring once they got to the capitol to make “citizen’s arrests” of congress members. One said they were bringing zip ties, and another said they were bringing rope.
“Given the very clear and explicit warning signs — with Trump supporters expressing prior intent to ‘storm and occupy Congress’ and use ‘handcuffs and zip ties,’ clear plans being laid out on public forums, and the recent precedent of the plot to storm the Michigan Capitol building while the legislature was in session — it is truly mind-boggling that the police were not better prepared,” said Rita Katz, executive director of SITE Intelligence Group, which was among the research groups that detailed what was coming in the weeks before the Capitol was attacked. It recapped much of this evidence in a report published Saturday.”Now they feel they were successful and are planning another takeover during the inauguration.” (Lang, Washington Post, 1/9/20210)
During the insurrection, journalists were charged. A flag pole was swung at them, yelling “traitors,” “fuck the mainstream media,” and “get out of here.” Media crews fled, and rioters destroyed their equipment as the crowd cheered.
They were screaming, “Hang Mike Pence,” and “Where’s Nancy.”
They have been seen wearing shirts that say OMWE, meaning one million Jews was not enough killed in the Holocaust.
