Trump supporters have stormed the US Capitol with reports of shots being heard inside the building.
Congress has gone into lockdown and the police have allowed the assorted fascists to breach all the capitol buildings, according to reports.
The floor of Congress is being evacuated and gas masks distributed to the country’s elected officials
The kid glove treatement of the all-white Trump rabble is in stary contrast to the treatment meted out to BLM or left-wing demonstartors.
It is not lost on those viewing the scenes how different the response of law enforcement would have been if this was a mostly Black crowd.
Earlier ni the day the protesters heard from Trump who egged on the crowd to do their worst inhis hour long diatribe of lies about how the election was supposedly stolen.
The Trump supporters are even more enraged by the events in Georgia where the Democrats are set to win both Senate seats, giving them control of all three branches of the US government.
Despite the best efforts of Republican white supremacists to suppress the Black vote in the state, it was the turnout of African-Americans that has swung the election in Georgia in the Democrats’ favour.
All the political leaders of the US are in the capitol and the police appear to have lost control of the situation as “protesters”, some alleged to have concealed weapons, roam the buildings.
This is a Trump coup attempt
This is political intimidation that has all the hallmarks of fascism in action.
A republican congressman has described the storming of the capitol as a coup attempt. He is right.
A 6pm curfew has been declared by the mayor of Washington DC but many will be asking why the capitol was not properly protected in the first place following days of warnings about violence from Trump loyalists.
It is time for Trump to be arrested for sedition against the republic.
