Supporters of President Donald Trump have breached the US Capitol.  Hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the perimeter of the Capitol, where they tussled with officers in full riot gear, some calling the officers "traitors" for doing their jobs.  About 90 minutes later, Trump's supporters got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were locked.

Trump's supporters have breached exterior security barriers, and video footage shows protesters gathering and some clashing with police near the Capitol building.  Video from inside the Capitol showed Trump's supporters marching through Statuary Hall.  Several loud flash bangs have been heard.  There are several suspicious devices outside the Capitol building.

Trump's supporters chanted "USA" and waved American and "Don't Tread on Me" flags toward the front of the crowd.

This is how Trump wants to "Make America Great Again": Through violent insurrection.

Exactly. And now Wrongplanet should stop the censorship saying bad stuff about Trump-supporters.

This is exactly what Trump supporters is all about: Violence, anti-democracy, they are all outright EVIL!

You cannot be a good person, if you still support Trump. Not in the light of this situation.

Somewhere, in my wildest dreams, the following happens on January 21st, 2021...

Image

Donald John Trump, you are under arrest.  You have the right to remain silent.  Anything you say can be used against you in court.  You have the right to talk to a lawyer for advice before we ask you any questions.  You have the right to have a lawyer with you during questioning.  If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed for you before any questioning if you wish.  If you decide to answer questions now without a lawyer present, you have the right to stop answering at any time...

... please ... please ... please ...

I seem to remember the far-right sympathizers saying that predictions of this sort of behaviour were crazy and unreasonable.

And those predictions were crazy and unreasonable just like Trump's raging fascist hordes.

Nah ... that is Trump's America.

The United States of America will survive this coup attempt.
