""We will come in numbers that no standing army or police agency can match,” wrote a popular Parler user who frequently posts about QAnon."​



In the wake of Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol, Trump supporters with extremist views feel emboldened and are vowing to return to Washington for the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20, using online platforms to rally each other.

“Many of Us will return on January 19, 2021, carrying Our weapons, in support of Our nation's resolve, towhich [sic] the world will never forget!!! We will come in numbers that no standing army or police agency can match,” wrote a popular Parler user who frequently posts about QAnon, and is being tracked by the Anti-Defamation League.


Parler, Telegram chat rooms and the platform TheDonald.win were all used to plan and coordinate the Jan. 6 rally that turned into a riot. Posters explicitly stated their intentions to “occupy” the Capitol. QAnon conspiracy theorists and people associated with militia groups had a visible presence in Wednesday’s crowd.

“Round 2 on January 20th. This time no mercy. I don’t even care about keeping Trump in power. I care about war,” an anonymous person posted on the platform TheDonald.win, which is filled with comments posted by people who lauded those who rioted Wednesday as “heroes.”

Law enforcement is scrambling to identify those who broke into the Capitol building, and are worried about the inauguration as another target.

“There is growing concern that violent extremists are emboldened by the breach of the Capitol, which means the clock is ticking on taking down the most influential incites of violence before they act again,” said Frank Figliuzzi, former FBI assistant director and NBC News national security analyst.

Federal and local law enforcement have made dozens of arrests so far in connection with Wednesday's Capitol breach and for violations of the curfew that followed.

The Secret Service, which is supervising security for the inauguration, could not immediately be reached for comment. The Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the Secret Service, referred NBC News to the Secret Service.

According the National Park Service, which handles permits for rallies in D.C., there are seven First Amendment permit applications in process that overlap with the inauguration date, one of which is clearly for Trump supporters.

Megan Squire, professor of computer science at Elon University and a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center who tracks online extremism, says she’s concerned that since President Donald Trump will not be at the inauguration, extremists will be focused on Biden.

“On January 6th their energy was focused on Congress. On the 20th their energy will be focused on Biden. That’s concerning especially since they’re not remorseful or ashamed. Right now it looks not great,” she said.

Squire has been collecting fliers for as many as 10 rallies planned for Jan. 17 organized by members of the far-right militia movement who call themselves “Bugaloo bois.” They emerged last year showing up at rallies calling for the protection of Second Amendment rights and the group has been on law enforcement’s radar for anti-government activity.

Of most concern is the excitement expressed online by accelerationists, some of the most violent and extreme in the white supremacist movement who believe there is an impending race war.

“On the whole the system’s power took a major hit yesterday,” one person wrote in a Telegram chatroom favored by accelerationists.

“[Accelerationists] are over the moon and talking about how to exploit grievances. They’re on these Telegram groups completely excited about it,” Squire said.

Just because a new president will be inaugurated, according to ADL President Jonathan Greenblatt, doesn’t mean pro-Trump extremists will fade into the background.

“The conspiratorial, baseless narrative of a stolen election will continue to animate extremists for some time to come,” he said.

National Guard Troops Deploying to DC Will Come With Lethal Weapons​


Army and Air National Guard members deploying to Washington, D.C. to help guard the capital and stay through the Jan. 20 inauguration will have access to lethal weapons at their commanders' discretion, Guard commanders said Friday.

"There's no hiding the fact that soldiers and airmen do have lethal force with them," Army Brig. Gen. David Wood, joint staff director of the Pennsylvania National Guard, said at a virtual roundtable with defense reporters.

"How those rules of the use of force are engaged is just dependent on the scenario and in that situation. We are going to try to deescalate as much as we can [before taking up weapons]," Wood said. "The way we deploy it will depend on the situation and the commander's intent."

The Associated Press reported earlier that Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy will make decisions in the coming days on whether Guard units will be armed on the District's streets.

Wood joined Army Maj. Gen. Timothy E. Gowen, adjutant general of the Maryland National Guard, and Army Col. Lisa Hou, interim adjutant of the New Jersey National Guard, at a virtual roundtable with defense reporters to describe the issues involved with their emergency deployments to Washington.

All three officers said they already had been planning to send units to the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden, but had had to scramble Wednesday, following the pro-Trump mob assault on the Capitol, to resolve problems with the various jurisdictions and command authorities involved.

Because Washington is a federal district and not a state, District Mayor Muriel Bowser does not have authority to call out D.C.'s National Guard on her own as state governors can, but must first request activation from McCarthy.

McCarthy also must coordinate with state governors to bring in National Guard units from outside the District.

As a result, Gowen said, there was initial confusion Wednesday before Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan got clearance. Gowen said he received the order to deploy troops around 5:30 p.m., well after Trump supporters had been cleared from the Capitol building.

Then it was decided with the D.C. National Guard to wait until Thursday morning to bring in the Maryland troops, Gowen said.

"Everyone wants to help right away, but sometimes you can't," Gowen said. "We've got to accept the notion that the National Guard is not a first-responder force."

Gowen said Maryland initially planned to send about 500 troops to the District; Wood said Pennsylvania was sending about 1,000; and Lou said New Jersey was sending 500.

So it is proven that the election was not stolen, it’s proven that it was as fair as any normal election.

If you believe that it was stolen, and you protest, you have no life, or no job. If you spend your vacation hours protesting a fantasy “stolen election” then you have nothing going on in your life, and you do not have any real problems.

because all of it is fantasy.

If I am totally wrong please let me know, and I will delete this post.

But my gut is telling me we are being framed with fake rallies. And now our leaders have no platform to warn or speak out against these...

Please spread the word that these are not us. I don't know how else to stop this.

EDIT: Thank you all for confirming my gut. If you feel like this needs to be shared easily, I have created a "flyer" with all the skills I could muster in Paint.

I’m never attending a protest as long as I can avoid it. Just not my bag but now especially. Although I can’t imagine anything as dramatic as Wednesday repeating itself now that security should be beefed up...if anyone’s planning an insurrection they’re pretty stupid to Telegraph the day and date.

So Al Capone is just a Buisnessman that evaded Taxes, right ?
I mean, he never was convicted for Murder, therefore.....
The Election was proven fair my ass, by whom ?
The same "Fact Checkers" and Legacy Media that cheered on Biden, while avoiding any questions about his Health or Senate Records ?
A SCOTUS that was afraid to take on the Cases because Antifa Babys were Rioting ?
Quite frankly, you CNN clown, try as you might to Blackpill people, all i hear is this:

I don’t believe the mainstream media. For all we know, the accounts posting that kind of rhetoric could be leftists trying to further demonize Trump supporters while they’re down. In fact, I’d say it’s likely.

So "right wing extremists" and "riot" are within the title and first sentence? Let's take a time machine back 4 years ago and see how NBC reported on something else;
More Than 200 Arrested in D.C. Protests on Inauguration Day

President Donald Trump's Inauguration Day was marred by noisy demonstrations, shoving matches and sporadic clashes with cops that resulted in more than 200 arrests.

Three-thousand members of local, state and federal law enforcement — backed by 5,000 National Guard members and police officers from as far away as New Jersey — patrolled the streets as the evening's festivities got under way and the legions of protesters still seething over the Manhattan mogul's unexpected victory threatened more disruptions.

Acting Police Chief Peter Newsham said that by around 6:30 p.m. ET things had calmed down, but authorities were still monitoring several groups.

At the same time, police are preparing for the Women's March on Washington set for Saturday that is expected to draw 200,000 protesters — a number that inaugural historian Jim Bendat said could break records.

The worst fracas on Friday erupted in Franklin Square, about a mile-and-a-half from Capitol Hill, just before Trump's swearing-in ceremony got underway, police said.

Six police officers suffered minor injuries when protesters flung bricks, trash cans and other objects, and ignited small fires, Newsham said.

Four businesses were vandalized and sustained "significant damage," he said. Also, demonstrators torched a limousine, police at the scene said.

All of the 217 people arrested on Friday were charged with rioting, Newsham said. And in some cases cops used flash-bang grenades and pepper spray to keep them from getting closer to the parade route.

Witnesses reported the demonstrators — some of them self-described "anarchists" dressed in black and wearing masks — were taunting police officers to try to get a rise out of them.

"I saw one guy, he was like pushing a cop, kind of antagonizing him, and the cop with the riot shield was banging him back," Johnny Silvercloud, a freelance journalist who was photographing protesters, told NBC News.

One man was accidentally knocked over by protesters, a law enforcement officer told NBC News. He was bleeding from the back of his head as paramedics helped him onto a stretcher.

Friday's violence came after a night of chaotic clashes between police and anti-Trump protesters. And it wasn't just limited to downtown D.C.

Interstate 695, which runs through the capital, ground to a standstill on Friday afternoon when protesters holding signs and waving flags stopped traffic.

To keep protesters out, several security checkpoints were set up around Capitol Hill to screen ceremony ticket holders.

Quickly, these became flashpoints of fury where Trump supporters and opponents came face.

Carrying signs that read "Not my president," "No Islamophobia" and "Black Lives Matter," demonstrators gave the Trump loyalists an earful as they filed through the checkpoints.

Protesters Joni Lipson and Joan Duckenfield, both of Philadelphia, said they were buoyed by the huge turnout of protesters. "It looks like there are more of us than Trump supporters here," Duckenfield said

At the checkpoint on 10th and E Streets, some Trump ticket holders were forced to run a gauntlet through a black-clad brigade of demonstrators who locked arms and refused to let them pass.

When they inadvertently tripped a pro-Trump couple, police immediately pounced and untangled everybody, while the protesters roared "Don't touch me" and "Stop! Stop!" Nobody was arrested.

There were anti-Trump protests in other cities Friday.

Seven people were arrested in New York City during a civil disobedience protest outside Trump Tower. "Resist from day one!" the crowd chanted.

In Chicago, protesters blocked traffic near Trump Tower and on Lake Shore Drive. The windows of at least one business was smashed, and police arrested five people as of 8:30 p.m., NBC Chicago reported. Police in Portland, Oregon, used pepper spray on crowds attempting to cross a bridge, according to NBC affiliate KGW. Police said eggs and ice balls were thrown at officers.
Just "demonstrators/protesters" with no political affiliation and their "inadvertent/accidental violence."

I'm a proud American. I intend to stand behind my president no matter who they are. If that makes me a dullard, so be it. I wish the best for my country overall as opposed to some dumb political party. This isn't sports.

Your prior post said it was "proven to not have happened".

This post says "Wasn't proven to have happened". The latter is true. The former is absurd.

These headlines and “scoops” are going to be coming in hot and heavy over the next week - and if something does happen - it’s hard to feel like we’re (the observing public regardless of political alignment) are being seated to watch it; then they, the big tech and left wing politicians (media too) will have more justification to censor and condemn right-wingers....fuck man. They’ve played us like a fiddle. I don’t see how we can come back from this.

If I had to choose to be on either right's side or the left's side in that situation, no matter how much I dislike many of their modern ideas, I'd stand with the left. Enough is enough. Biden will be the president and that's it. You had your chance to change the course of things in the past previous months. It's time to let go. If fraud happened, just accept it that they were able to not get caught. Violent fight won't change a thing and you aren't able to prove fraud anymore. If a successfull insurrection happened, you would then have a government that has taken its spot through violence without proving their point and that is unacceptable. And if you think you CAN prove fraud, then there is no need for violence anyway. I believe there was a fraud, but enough is enough. They played the game better. Get over it.

I don’t disagree with you on the “moving on” sentiment BUT, you have to realize there is a passionate group, hopefully a small LOUD minority, that believes this was TRULY stolen and the Democratic Party is swamp-shit and corrupted and that they have to take back our country. As they believe it’s their constitutional rite.
In a modern society, the hope is that violence and calls for it, would be useless and not needed...but we haven’t made enough progress

Anyone who does this is either a retard or a false flag agent because this is the dumbest possible thing they could do. Qanon has always been a bastion of retards though, so it’s not surprising.

It makes no logical sense. They already gathered en masse and all they accomplished was messing up parts of the Capitol and drawing everyone's ire (and those caught on camera all getting arrested). Yes, logic means nothing to these types. But just on logistics, what we saw on the 6th should have been "everything they got", and it was pathetic. We ended up with a bunch of larping nuts dressed in viking-wear. And now they'll try again with "even greater force" with the Armed National Guard in deployment...

My opinion is closer to "they failed to prove it" than that it's clean. The voting irregularities alone put me that direction. Frankly, I'm used to the left skirting the truth and lying through their teeth. Otherwise I wouldn't have voted Trump to begin with.

I'll admit defeat in the form of "Getting away with it is a path to victory in and of itself" but that's as good as you fucks are gonna get from me.

wrong.

You have no evidence that it was anything different. The norm is a fair election, that’s the expectation.

Fraud would be the extremity. You wouldn’t claim fraud/stolen election without proof of it. That’s just the fact of the matter.
