Also, Olympus Has Fallen doesn't seem as far fetched now. As long as you're white, you could actually pull that shit off.

I'm glad that everyone in here is accepting the reality that race played a huge role in this attempted coup being carried out as far as it was. Still seeing some people downplay it, but we all know the truth.

It absolutely did. Downplaying that is absurd.

The DC police are moving in now to get them out before the 6pm curfew. Other than the initial "skirmish", what did police do?? Who were they taking orders from? Valid questions.

No arrests that I can see so far, unlike with BLM protests. Gee, I wonder why...

Trump should have been removed on 25th Amendment long before today. It's not going to happen now.

If non whites stormed the Capitol, a lot of them would be dead. But, they're white so nothing to see here.

Hearing now that the capitol building has been secured.

Not sure where they will proceed from here, but I sure as hell know what I would order.

I would go even beyond to say that it's about time people recognize that most of this can be traced back to a reaction to Obama being elected president. You can draw a direct line from Tea Party to the radicalization of the Republican Party around white supremacist ideas to the demolition of the Voting Rights Act to Trump's ascension to Charlottesville to the Bible episode in the summer to today. Which is why it is infuriating to hear people say that "this is extraordinary" or "unthinkable". It's been clear for a while that this was bound to happen.

Remember when tear gas was used so that Trump could have a photo op in front of a church?
