Donald Trump has barely begun drawing the rally crowd to the Capitol, but the supremacist white militias did not bother to witness Trump’s repetition of lies about electoral fraud. They went straight to the part about the rampage and looting.
BREAKING: Trump supporters broke through the Capitol building, tore down four layers of security fences and are trying to occupy the building – fighting federal police who have been overrun
It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thousands, the police can’t stop them pic.twitter.com/VVdTUwV5YN

The The Madison LOC building is evacuated after Trump supporters breached security and walked past police.
The militia did not break through the actual Capitol. After tearing down four layers of security fence, they were initially pushed back behind a makeshift fence. That is exactly what Donald Trump promised his supporters. And exactly what he wanted.

28 / The cops are comparatively cold compared to the left-wing protests I have participated in.
They don’t smash people in the head, and nobody cooks the stop the steal rallies. You can just turn around and leave anytime.
Except … they don’t.
