How easy would it be for a couple of hundred provocateurs to attend a rally with nearly a million law abiding citizens and create mayhem?
Why was John Sullivan, a known and violent BLM activist, leading the spearhead of the protest? He was not just in the lead, he was the man who filmed Ashli Babbit’s shooting and death. The Daily Mail even reported this, and accepted that he is a known left wing activist, but “did not specify what exactly brought him there”. What brought him there was evidently the urge to tell Trump Supporters to “Burn Down the building” which they wouldn’t do. John Sullivan was last seen wandering the streets freely, not charged with anything.
Trump supporters did not set fire to anything, they didn’t set off the handy pipe bombs left lying around. They also didn’t shine lazers into the eyes of police officers, destroy any heritage art or historic statues. Even the New York Times reports that “The damage was largely limited to broken glass, busted doors and graffiti….”
But that’s a constitutional crisis. “Impeach him!”
“Your outrage is being manufactured”
Alex Jones, of InfoWars was at the protest. He says the provocateurs hoped to create much more damage, but failed: It only got about 1% of the violence they hoped for because honest law abiding Trump supporters were so hard to whip into action.
This is quite a powerful little video:
By infiltrating traditional protests Antifa and BLM make it hard for law abiding citizens to be able to protest in future. Each event becomes an advertising meme for those prepared to lie, cheat, loot and vandalize.
Blame the media. When the left loot, it’s a peaceful protest. Will any of the Antifa and BLM troublemakers get charged or lose their job?
At least the Wall Street Journal is reporting expert legal advice who say “No”:
Inflaming emotions isn’t a crime. The president didn’t mention violence, much less provoke it.
Wall Street Journal
The president didn’t commit incitement or any other crime. I should know. As a Washington prosecutor I earned the nickname “protester prosecutor” from the antiwar group CodePink. In one trial, I convicted 31 protesters who disrupted congressional traffic by obstructing the Capitol Crypt. In another, I convicted a CodePink activist who smeared her hands with fake blood, charged at then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in a House hearing room, and incited the audience to seize the secretary of state physically. In other cases, I dropped charges when the facts fell short of the legal standard for incitement. One such defendant was the antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan.
Hostile journalists and lawmakers have suggested Mr. Trump incited the riot when he told a rally that Republicans need to “fight much harder.” Mr. Trump suggested the crowd walk to the Capitol: “We’re going to cheer on brave senators and congressmen and -women, and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them. Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong.”
