Thousands storm Capitol as GOP takes action

Shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday, hundreds of protesters gathered outside the locked King Street entrance to the Capitol, chanting “Break down the door!” and “General strike!”

Moments later, police ceded control of the State Street doors and allowed the crowd to surge inside, joining thousands who had already gathered in the Capitol to protest the votes. The area outside the Assembly, which is scheduled to take the bill up at 11 a.m. today, was crowded with protesters who chanted, “We’re not leaving. Not this time.” …

Department of Administration spokesman Tim Donovan said although protesters were being encouraged to leave, no one would be forcibly removed. … Mayor Dave Cieslewicz said he had instructed … Police Chief Noble Wray not to allow his officers to participate in removing demonstrators from the building.

At one point, officials estimated up to 7,000 people had spilled into the Capitol, some coming through doors and windows opened from the inside, including one legislative office and several bathrooms. Some door knobs and door handles were removed, Donovan said.

Officers eventually retrenched to the third floor, Donovan said, adding, “it was felt by several law enforcement officials that the best solution was to keep everybody safe” and stop trying to keep the crowds out.

That article is not about today in Washington, that’s about 9 years ago in Madison, from the Wisconsin State Journal:

These kind of mob actions in Madison went on for months in 2011. But they’ve disappeared down the memoryhole because the mob was Democratic. So, therefore, they were the Good Guys, not the Bad Guys. It’s hard to remember facts that contradict The Narrative.

In contrast, the childish LARPers who got into the US Capitol today will of course go down in Narrative infamy, like the Charlottesville LARPers. They were the designated Bad Guys already, so their bad behavior plugs seamlessly into the prefab Narrative.

That’s not fair, but that’s how it works.

By the way, do Democrats now favor the use of facial recognition software for prosecuting the trespassers?

Democrats have objected to facial recognition’s use in prosecuting tens of thousands of BLM looters videotaped doing Undocumented Shopping during the George Floyd mourning process. But perhaps they will now have a change of mind over facial recognition’s utility.

Another question: How much rioting would there have been in D.C. if Trump had won?

We can tell who was the main threat by the behavior of D.C. business owners who boarded up their windows during Election Week until Joe Biden was announced the winner.

From WUSA9 in Washington D.C. after Biden had been declared the victor by the media:

It is obvious as to what happened at the capitol. There was going to be a hearing regarding election irregularities. Since that had the potential of changing the election results, the deep state had provocateurs enter the capitol building resulting in violence. They also remove most of the capitol police that normally would be present. That allowed the provocateurs to enter the capitol building.

Clearly, the deep state achieved the results they wanted since, after the violence, most of the congressmen and senators that would have objected refrained from doing so given Biden the presidency.
