    If this was a left-wing protest we would be seeing people killed by cops already.

    White privilege has stormed the Capitol and it turns out it's allowed inside.

    Gotta say this is pretty insane to see happening but not at all surprising.

    "The US Capitol is now on lockdown." - Kaitlan Collins, CNN correspondent.



    "Protesters have breached the Capitol. They're outside the Senate chamber" - Igor Bobic, HuffPo reporter.

    "Another update: They've just disbursed tear gas in the rotunda and are telling members to put on gas masks under their seats." - Matt Fuller, another HuffPo reporter (I think, bio's not clear).



    "They’re shooting into the chamber."

    A nice right wing peaceful protest.

    Definitely not a riot. Skin isn’t dark enough for that.

    So a violent crowd has stormed the literal Capitol Building, the seat of the United State Government, with intent to commit violence and yet live ammunition still has not been used against them as literal enemy combatants

    I've never known Jan. 6 to be anything important in all the years I've been cognizant of what a president or an election is, and now suddenly it turns into this.

    Fucking alright.

    You know that thing where someone makes a joke tweet or article talking about US politics in the way that US news talks about politics in developing countries?

    that but unironically

    I don't want to hear a fucking word from Biden's DOJ about not prosecuting every traitor on the hill today, top to bottom.

    Unless he wants a repeat of this clusterfuck every time the Nazis don't get their way.

    don't you worry, they'll let all these guys go and then fire actual guns into the crowd the next time people gather to protest police murders

    from each according to his ability, to each according to his need

    Possibly not:


    tweet text: I heard an officer say "shots fired"


    CNN reporting both protestors and police are armed; the police in the chamber definitely have guns drawn.

    I'm almost like completely numb to it at this point?

    Like yeah, of course Trump egged on a mob to literally storm the senate, and of course the police aren't doing shit to stop it, that makes sense

    And honestly the fact that my response to all this is "yeah that makes sense" is almost scarier than the actual events, because it kinda starkly reveals how hollow and theatrical the entire fucking government and political process is?

    Like, you look at this happening and instinctively know two things: 1) this is fucked up and should be treated a huge deal, and 2) literally no one in a position of power is going to do a single thing about this. Sure, concerns will be raised, there will be a few somber pronouncements or whatever, but any real action, real consequences?

    Nah, they're just gonna try and ignore it until it goes away on it's own.

    This is going to get ugly.

    Someone is going to fire a shot and a lot of people might die.

    They all suck at least. Let the cops and nazis shoot each other.

    I've talked myself off the ledge repeatedly the last few months and I'm doing better today than I expected to be, but this is pretty much exactly what I expected to happen, to be honest.

    VERY weird how police were completely unable to stop this but had no problem sending tanks and munitions against vastly larger crowds all summer

    it's really so strange

    they must be out of tear gas or something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That’s because too many of the National Guard are already there “protesting”

    Copying from the D&D thread:

    WaPo reporter:
    BREAKING: A source tells me The Defense Department has just denied a request by DC officials to deploy the National Guard to the US Capitol.

    This is going to lead to a wider crackdown on protests that will almost certainly do more to hurt civil rights activism than right wing sedition.
