Politricks: U.S. Capitol Terror Attack

Written by on January 21, 2021

When the news showed the attacks on the United States Capitol building it came as one of the biggest shocks in all the years I’ve been alive. In 2007 I relocated to the Washington, D.C. metro area. During my time there and seeing these events unfold at the Capitol building I felt the need to make a few points. Below are ten thoughts on the Capitol terror attack.

1. Washington D.C. is heavily armed and protected

One of the things that I’ve never experienced is the amount of police agencies they’re are, and the amount of security that is in place to protect the politicians that work in the city-state. Even the Library has it’s own “Library Police” just show an example of how many police are around daily. Not to mention the intelligence that goes on behind the scenes.

2. The Capitol building is normally inaccessible to regular traffic especially with Covid-19 regulations, also regualarly heavily guarded with an enormous amount of Capitol Police

I’m giving you this clip featuring Mikie Sherrill (D) Rep. New Jersey below explaining how the Capitol has been inaccessible, and how the Capitol Police were strangely reduced that day despite knowing a protest was to happen that day with all of the nations representatives present to officially count the votes. 🤔 Please listen clearly as she gives you clues to support that this was a well planned attack by domestic terrorist on the U.S Capitol building.

3. There were multiple warnings of what could happen

I’m a person that simply uses Twitter, and Facebook and I was well aware of what could possibly happen that day. With all the technology, and intel they receive the Capitol Police and all the agencies that are in place to prevent these kinds things from happening never got the bulletin. 🤔 (Ceaser Rodney could have rode his horse and delivered that warning.)

4. Trump ignited the mob

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out Trump led the mob there on that specific day, at that specific time. It’s this simple when Mitch McConnell says “the mob was fed lies” which ignited them to head down to the Capitol and do what they did. Check out what Mitch had to say:

Trump sent the Mob down to the Capitol with these exact words…

“Now it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy. And after this, we’re going to walk down, and I’ll be there with you. … We are going to the Capitol, and we are going to try and give — the Democrats are hopeless, they are never voting for anything, not even one vote, but we are going to try — give our Republicans, the weak ones, because the strong ones don’t need any of our help, we’re try — going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.”

The real shady fact to this whole thing is while Donald J. Trump urged his supporters to ‘fight much harder’ against ‘bad people’ and ‘show strength’ at the Capitol he just hopped right back into his limo and headed to the safety of the White House while all the chaos he caused occurred.

5. What was President Trump doing during the attacks

I wonder what exactly President Trump was doing the moment US Air Force veteran and President Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt was fatally shot during the riot inside the US Capitol building, or the moments Capitol Police were under attack inside the U.S. Capitol building. Here’s the facts: he wasn’t walking down to the Capitol building with anyone, and he wasn’t there at the U.S. Capitol with everyone like he stated moments before he sent the mob to do his dirty work.

6. White Supremacy was on full display

This uprising of White Supremacy was unlike anything we’ve seen here in America since the sixties. Flags, signs and symbols of racist, white supremacist and extremist groups were on full display along with Trump 2020 banners and American flags during this dark moment in U.S. history. Not even during the civil war had a confederate flag ever made it into the U.S. Capitol building. I guess there’s a first time for everything.

There was a noose and gallows setup outside specifically to hang Mike Pence. There were plenty of militia groups present representing with there flags as you can see in the article released by CNN explaining all the flags and the groups they are connected to:

7. The Slow Response To The Attacks

If these people were muslims or any other people of color:

A. Do you think they would have made it into the U.S. Capitol building. My answer: They would have been fired on when they tried to breach the barriers by Capitol Police.

B. Do you think they would have made it through the actual door without being fired on after breaching the barriers outside. My answer: The death toll would have been much higher. Not to mention it would have been justified. (Why weren’t they fired on? 🤔)

C. Do you think after breaching the barriers outside, gaining entry to the building after smashing windows to get in, and getting all the way to the house chamber seat, and accessing representatives offices do you think anyone would have made it out? Much less go back to one of the most expensive hotels in Washington, DC and be seen smoking cigars and celebrating. My answer: Hell no! The Muslims or people of color would have been hunted down using all the modern technology they could get there hands on along with support from the media. (Why no huge manhunt from the media plastering the identities of all they could figure out? 🤔)

8. Punishment For The Terrorist

Five people died as a result of the riot, including a Capitol Police officer. It took a bit of time for them to get to hunting down these terrorist. Now finally some of the charges are being handed out and it doesn’t look to be the strong punishment that any of us expected considering the crime.

There were plenty of guns on display during these riots at the Capitol and there are federal laws against carrying a gun in the Capitol building, and possessing an unregistered firearm or unlicensed ammunition in the District of Columbia.

Several dozen individuals have been charged with unlawful entry on the Capitol grounds, which is a crime under the Washington D.C. criminal code and federal law.

Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died on Thursday. Sicknick “was injured while physically engaging with protesters,” the police department said in a statement. He collapsed after he returned to his divisional office, the statement said.
Sicknick was one of the five people to die as a result of the riot. A top priority for law enforcement will be identifying anyone responsible for Sicknick’s death, said Matt Jones, a former federal prosecutor in Washington now at the law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr. If someone assaulted Sicknick, that person could be charged with murder or manslaughter.

Anyone who assisted the main perpetrator could face criminal charges for “aiding and abetting” murder or manslaughter.

Evidence shows Capitol rioters brutally attacked police with flagpoles, fire extinguishers and fists

CNN has the details: https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/21/politics/capitol-rioters-attacking-police/index.html

9. The insurrectionist riot at the US Capitol included highly trained ex-military, law enforcement officers

It’s been a longtime people have said the Klu Klux Klan didn’t go away they just traded in the sheets for suits. When you look at all the darkness coming to light racism in the police force and in the military has been exposed. Are they now going to go back and analyze all the reports, friendly fire, and all the other darkness connected to the racism in the military and police.? My answer: I highly doubt it…

10. Now what?

After all the money spent on fighting the results of the election, all the people now involved in the insurrection being hunted down by the feds, and those who last there lives the question is now what after all that? Donald J. Trump flies away to Florida and Joe Biden becomes the 46th President of the United States of America anyway. Muslims and people of color still need to treated better in 2021+
