As I predicted, the capitol protest was just the beginning.
And they still don’t get it, or refuse to.
And, again, by “they” I mean our pompous politicians, our ever-diligent and ever-disingenuous news media, and “the treasonous, lying, swamp” in general, regarding the protesters coming to Washington…, and now the protesters across the country.
According to Stephen Sorace of Fox News, “As pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, others supporting the president gathered in state capitals nationwide to oppose President-elect Joe Biden’s win, leading to the evacuations of some statehouses and lawmakers.”
But, of course, there has been NO indications of election fraud anywhere…, and, this was the MOST secure election in history.
“The chaos in the nation’s capital came as hundreds of people gathered in state capitals from Georgia to New Mexico, with many carrying flags and waving signs that read ‘Stop the steal’ and ‘Four more years.’ Some carried guns in places like Oklahoma, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and Washington state.”
“While most demonstrations were peaceful, there were reports of scuffles breaking out in states like Utah, Oregon and California.”
Isn’t “scuffle” a nice word?
It makes you think of something between dancing and wrestling.
Getting back to the protests…, “In Washington state, dozens of protesters, some of whom were armed, broke through a gate at the Washington governor’s mansion in Olympia and gathered on the lawn for about 30 minutes before being cleared from the area.”
“The crowd carried signs saying ‘Stop the steal’ and ‘Trump won 2020.’ They were heard repeating baseless allegations of election fraud.”
Your immediate assessment that these were “baseless allegations,” is quite troubling, Stephen Sorace.
I don’t recall anything protesters said being labeled as “baseless” regarding BLM or ANTIFA protests.
I don’t recall any of the claims surrounding the great Russian collusion hoax being described as “baseless.”
The list could go on.
The point is, conservative complaints are usually dismissed as “baseless,” immediately, while liberal accusations are treated as gospel…, and you should probably just concentrate on reporting what happened, without assuming the role of judge, jury, or executioner.
“Protesters had earlier gathered outside the state Capitol to demand a recount of the U.S. presidential election and the state’s gubernatorial election.”
In Michigan, the state capitol building was briefly evacuated to investigate a bomb threat.
In Utah, “As several hundred protesters gathered outside the state Capitol building in Salt Lake City, Gov. Spencer Cox and Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson sent staff home as a precautionary measure.”
“Some of the protesters were armed and many did not wear masks or follow social distancing.”
Uh, excuse me…, pardon me…, but apparently you didn’t get the memo that masks or social distancing practices were suspended where protesting was concerned. At least that was the case all summer long at BLM protests.
Anyway, “The demonstrations remained mostly peaceful, FOX13 Salt Lake City reported. However, Salt Lake Tribune photographer Rick Egan said he was pepper-sprayed by a demonstrator who taunted him for wearing a mask and shoved him as he was shooting video of the protest.”
In California, “A pro-Trump rally near City Hall in downtown Los Angeles began peacefully, but turned violent after police declared it an unlawful assembly, FOX11 Los Angeles reported.”
“Shouting matches and fistfights broke out between small groups of protesters and counter-protesters, according to the station. Police arrested six people.”
In Oklahoma, “Hundreds of pro-Trump supporters crowded on the steps of the state Capitol in Oklahoma City, waving flags and signs saying ‘Stop the steal’ to protest the certification vote of Biden.”
In New Mexico, “The arrival of a caravan of hundreds of flag-waving Trump supporters in vehicles and on horseback prompted the New Mexico police to evacuate staff from a Statehouse building as a precautionary measure as chaos and violence broke out in Washington, D.C.”
Was this a protest, or a scene from the Thanksgiving Day Parade?!
“Demonstrators sang ‘God Bless America,’ honked horns and wrongly announced on a megaphone that Trump was the rightful election winner.”
Here we go with the with the assumption of the role of judge, jury, or executioner, again.
“A spokesman [You mean spokesperson, right?] for [democrat] Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said there were no indications of threats or unrest at the Statehouse, KRQE-TV reported.”
“Georgia’s Republican [RINO] Secretary of State Brad [Benedict Arnold] Raffensperger and his staff evacuated their offices at the Capitol as about 100 protesters gathered outside, some armed with long guns.”
Good call, Brad.
You should maybe consider vacating your office permanently.
“In Colorado, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock ordered city agencies to close buildings after hundreds gathered in front of the Capitol building for a protest against the election results.”
In Oregon, “Protesters scuffled [there’s that word again] with counter-protesters at the Oregon Capitol in Salem as riot police moved in.”
So, again, why were all of the people out there protesting in Washington D.C. and across the country?
BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL TIRED OF HAVING TO PUT UP WITH ALL OF THE LIBERAL AND ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN BS, WHILE HAVING NO RECOURSE NOW, SINCE THE ELECTION PROCESS HAS APPARENTLY BEEN COMPROMISED, AND NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE!
