FFS!

Videos show prominent Trump supporters in Capitol riot

Some of President Trump's supporters have tried to blame Wednesday's mob assault on the U.S. Capitol on left-wing "antifa" protesters — even though numerous prominent Trump fans posed for photos during the riot and bragged about their involvement after publicly planning the assault for weeks.

Many of these claims are based on a Washington Times report that cited facial recognition company XRVision, claiming it had "matched" two purported antifa members to "men inside the Senate." The company issued a statement calling the report a lie and clarifying that it had actually matched the photos to two members of a neo-Nazi organization and a QAnon supporter. The statement confirmed what was already obvious from countless photos, videos and live-streams posted by the rioters themselves while waving Trump flags and wearing MAGA gear.

Though some Trump supporters based their frivolous claims on photos that spread across social media, the Washington Times story appears to be at the center of many of these allegations. The conservative newspaper claimed that XRVision "used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia Antifa members to two men inside the Senate." The report claimed that one of the men "has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer" and the other "is someone who shows up at climate and Black Lives Matter protests in the West."

The company strongly denied the report and demanded a retraction and apology.

"We concluded that two of the individuals (Jason Tankersley and Matthew Heimbach) were affiliated with the Maryland Skinheads and the National Socialist Movements," the statement said. "These two are known Nazi organizations; they are not Antifa. The third individual identified (Jake Angeli) is an actor with some QAnon promotion history. Again, no Antifa identification was made for him either."

Is there any doubt what their intentions were?

Is this co-opted extremist symbology?

“Some white supremacists, particularly racist Odinists, have appropriated the Valknot to use as a racist symbol. Often they use it as a sign that they are willing to give their life to Odin, generally in battle.“



This guy was also seen earlier in the day holding a “Hold the line; Patriots” on the Capital building steps before the building was infiltrated...

Law enforcement escort to the Senate floor; reconvene @ 8 p.m.

ACLU: These aren't protests -we know protests.

@ACLU

These aren't protests — we know protests.

These were acts of violence meant to overthrow the legitimate outcome of a democratic election.

They are literally slow walking anyone in the area down the street...

I’m sure you are witnessing it too.

In one feed I watched one cop remove a hand from a his patrol jacket; not his paramilitary riot suit; but the same jacket he’d grab from the passenger seat before stepping out of his vehicle to issue a traffic ticket; and issue a low handed wave; as if to signal: “Have a good night...”

Law enforcement has been infiltrated.

It’s time for a mass vetting process...

So how long does it take for the additional resources to arrive?

The CSPAN live feed still shows people on the steps and reports that people are still in the building?

How have they had unfettered access to the Capital for nearly two hours?!

This response time is pathetic!
