Police confront rioters who entered Capitol Hill buildings

QAnon among the protesters

Images show individuals associated with a range of extreme and far-right groups and supporters of fringe online conspiracy theories, many of whom have long been active online and at pro-Trump rallies.

One of the most startling images, quickly shared across social media, shows a man dressed with a painted face, fur hat and horns, holding an American flag.

He's been identified as Jake Angeli, a well-known supporter of the baseless conspiracy theory QAnon. He calls himself the QAnon Shaman.

 QAnon supporter

His social media presence shows him attending multiple QAnon events and posting YouTube videos about deep state conspiracies.

He was pictured in November making a speech in Phoenix, Arizona, about unproven claims the election was fraudulent.

His personal Facebook page is filled with images and memes relating to all sorts of extreme ideas and conspiracy theories.

The Proud Boys

Another group spotted at the storming of the Capitol were members of the far-right group Proud Boys.

The organisation was founded in 2016 and is anti-immigrant and all male. In the first US presidential debate President Trump in response to a question about white supremacists and militias said: "Proud Boys - stand back and stand by."

One of their members, Nick Ochs, tweeted a selfie inside the building saying "Hello from the Capital lol". He also filmed a live stream inside.

We haven't identified the individual standing on the left in the above image.

Mr Ochs' profile on the messaging app Telegram describes himself as a "Proud Boy Elder from Hawaii."

Online influencers

Individuals with large followings online were also spotted at the protests.

Among them was the social media personality Tim Gionet, who goes under the pseudonym "Baked Alaska".

His livestream from inside the Capitol posted on a niche streaming service was watched by thousands of people and showed him talking to other protesters.

A Trump supporter, Mr Gionet has made a name for himself as an internet troll.

YouTube banned his channel in October after he posted videos of himself harassing shop workers and refusing to wear a face-mask during the coronavirus pandemic.

Other platforms that have previously shut down his accounts include Twitter and PayPal.

    can't believe it actually happened in US, a country that always claimed to  praise democracy and object to violence. Maybe they just showed us how the real democracy look like and how advantageous their system is. Incredible!

    US Capitol secured, 4 dead after rioters stormed the halls of Congress to block Biden's win

    https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/06/politics/us-capitol-lockdown/index.html

    The US Capitol is once again secured but four people are dead -- including one woman who was shot -- after supporters of President Donald Trump breached one of the most iconic American buildings, engulfing the nation's capital in chaos after Trump urged his supporters to fight against the ceremonial counting of the electoral votes that will confirm President-elect Joe Biden's win.

    Shortly after 1 p.m. ET Wednesday 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, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police. Vice President Mike Pence was also evacuated from the chamber, where he was to perform his role in the counting of electoral votes.
    An armed standoff took place at the House front door at about 3 p.m. ET, and police officers had their guns drawn at someone who was trying to breach it. A Trump supporter was also pictured standing at the Senate dais earlier in the afternoon.
      A woman, who is yet to be identified, died after being shot in the chest on the Capitol grounds, DC police confirmed to CNN. More information on the shooting was not immediately available and a police spokesperson said additional details will come later. DC Police Chief Robert Contee said three other people died from medical emergencies during the riot.
      "One adult female and two adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies, which resulted in their deaths. Any loss of life in the District is tragic and our thoughts are with anyone impacted by their loss," Contee said at a news conference Wednesday night.
      Multiple officers have been injured with at least one transported to the hospital, multiple sources tell CNN.
      Smoke grenades were used on the Senate side of the Capitol, as police worked to clear the building of rioters. Windows on the west side of the Senate were broken, and hundreds of officers amassed on the first floor of the building.
      The Senate floor was cleared of rioters as of 3:30 p.m. ET, and an officer told CNN that they successfully squeezed them away from the Senate wing of the building and toward the Rotunda. The protesters were removed through the east and west doors of the Capitol. At least 52 people were arrested as of 9:30 p.m. ET Wednesday in Washington.
      The US Capitol Police worked to secure the second floor of the Capitol first, and were seen just before 5 p.m. ET pushing demonstrators off the steps on the east side of the building. With about 30 minutes to go before Washington's 6 p.m. ET curfew, Washington police amassed in a long line to push the mob back from the Capitol grounds.
      It took until roughly 5:40 p.m. ET for the building to once again be secured, according to the sergeant-at-arms.
      The stunning display of insurrection was the first time the US Capitol had been overrun since the British attacked and burned the building in August of 1814, during the War of 1812, according to Samuel Holliday, director of scholarship and operations with the US Capitol Historical Society.
      The shocking scene was met with less police force than many of the Black Lives Matter protests that rolled across the country in the wake of George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police officers last year. While federal police attacked peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square outside the White House over the summer, clearing the way for Trump to take a photo in front of a nearby church at the time, protesters on Wednesday were able to overrun Capitol police and infiltrate the country's legislative chambers.

      An afternoon of chaos

      The protesters first breached exterior security barriers, and video footage showed protesters gathering and some clashing with police near the Capitol building. CNN's team on the ground saw a number of protesters trying to move up the side of the Capitol building. Several loud flash bangs were heard as well.
      Protesters could be seen pushing against metal fences and police used the fences to push protesters back, while other officers reached over the top to club people trying to cross their lines.
      Flash bangs could be heard near the steps of the Capitol as smoke filled the air. In some instances officers could be seen deploying pepper spray. Tear gas was deployed, but it's not clear whether by protesters or police, and people wiped tears from their eyes while coughing.
      After the building was breached, the Capitol police officer in the House chamber told lawmakers that they may need to duck under their chairs and informed lawmakers that protesters were in the building's Rotunda. Lots of House members were seen wearing gas masks as they moved between Capitol buildings. Members were calling family to say they were OK.
      Congressional leaders were being evacuated from the Capitol complex just before 5 p.m. ET and were set to be taken to Fort McNair, a nearby Army base in Washington, according to a federal law enforcement official.
      Trump has directed the National Guard to Washington along with "other federal protective services," according to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. The entire DC National Guard has been activated by the Department of Defense, according to the Pentagon.
      "The D.C. Guard has been mobilized to provide support to federal law enforcement in the District," said Jonathan Hoffman, the chief Pentagon spokesman. "Acting Secretary Miller has been in contact with Congressional leadership, and Secretary McCarthy has been working with the D.C. government. The law enforcement response will be led by the Department of Justice."
      The official said DC National Guard was not anticipating to be used to protect federal facilities, and the Trump administration had decided earlier this week that would be the task of civilian law enforcement, the official said.
      Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a citywide curfew from 6 p.m. ET on Wednesday until 6 a.m. ET Thursday.

      Lawmakers return to the Capitol

      Lawmakers began returning to the Capitol after the building was secured and made it clear that they intended to resume their intended business -- namely, confirming Biden's win over Trump by counting the votes in the Electoral College.
      Proceedings resumed at about 8 p.m. ET with Pence -- who never left the Capitol, according to his press secretary -- bringing the Senate session back into order.
      "Let's get back to work," he said.
      House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement earlier Wednesday evening that congressional leadership wanted to continue with the joint session Wednesday night.
      "Today, a shameful assault was made on our democracy. It was anointed at the highest level of government. It cannot, however, deter us from our responsibility to validate the election of Joe Biden," Pelosi wrote.
      "To that end, in consultation with Leader Hoyer and Whip Clyburn and after calls to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the Vice President, we have decided we should proceed tonight at the Capitol once it is cleared for use. Leader Hoyer will be sending out more guidance later today."
      Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the floor that the "United States Senate will not be intimidated. We will not be kept out of this chamber by thugs, mobs or threats."
      It took until deep in the early hours of Thursday morning, but Congress eventually counted and certified Biden's election win.

      Trump tells supporters to go home, eventually

      Trump finally called on his supporters to "go home" hours after the riot started, but spent a large amount of time in the one-minute video lamenting and lying about his election loss.
      In one stunning line, Trump told the mob to "go home," but added, "We love you. You are very special."
      Trump struck a sympathetic tone to the rioters he himself unleashed, saying, "I know your pain, I know you're hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it. Especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace."
      However, later on in the evening Trump justified the mob's actions and praised them.
      "These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!" he said, in a tweet that was later deleted by Twitter.
      Others inside the President's orbit tweeted their calls for calm as the mob repeatedly attempted to take over the building.
      Donald Trump Jr., the President's son, said that his supporters who mobbed the Capitol were "wrong and not who we are."
      "Be peaceful and use your 1st Amendment rights, but don't start acting like the other side. We have a country to save and this doesn't help anyone," he tweeted.

      Multiple bombs detonated safely

      Federal and local law enforcement responded to reports of possible pipe bombs in multiple locations in Washington, DC, according to a federal law enforcement official.
      A pipe bomb was found at the Republican National Committee's headquarters, a RNC official told CNN. The device was found on the ground outside, along the wall of the headquarters. It was safely detonated by the police, the RNC official said.
      At least two suspected pipe bombs were rendered safe by law enforcement -- the one at the building that houses RNC offices and one in the US Capitol complex, a federal law enforcement official told CNN. The official said these were real explosive devices and they were detonated safely.
      The Democratic National Committee was also evacuated after a suspicious package was being investigated nearby, a Democratic source familiar with the matter told CNN. The party had preemptively closed the building ahead of the protests, the source said, but a few security and essential personnel were evacuated.
        Near the scene where one of the pipe bombs was found Wednesday, police detained a suspect and found a vehicle with a rifle and as many as 10 Molotov cocktails, according to a federal law enforcement official. Investigators are working to determine whether there's a connection to the bombs found earlier.

        Baker: President Trump’s Response To Capitol Hill Riot ‘Disgraceful’

        https://boston.cbslocal.com/2021/01/07/baker-president-trumps-response-to-capitol-hill-riot-disgraceful/

        Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker called the riot at Capitol Hill “appalling, disgraceful, and depressing” and called it a “dark moment for our country.”

        “The whole thing makes me sick,” said Baker.

        The state’s Republican governor was critical of President Donald Trump’s response after rioters — many waving Trump flags or carrying Trump gear — breached the Capitol building.

        “Yesterday’s riot was a dark moment for our country, made even more depressing by the President’s role leading up to it, and his wholly inadequate and appalling response to the violence,” Baker said. “His remarks during and after the travesty of the attack on the Capitol were disgraceful.”

        Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito called the events on Capitol Hill “a disgrace” and “horrifying.”

        “President Trump’s tepid response and failure to condemn the actions of his supporters was shocking,” she said.

      • BrwinwaBrwinwa PEx Rookie ⭐
        I don't understand why Trump wanted this riot. Yes, he didn't want to concede, but no one has the responsibility to earn his job. The blood is on him. He not only didn't do anything good for his people, but hurt their life! How could he do that? It is totally unreasonable!

        Biden, Harris, activists blast double standard in police response

        https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/1/7/leaders-activists-blast-double-standard-in-police-response

        On Wednesday police said 68 arrests were made the majority for breaking a curfew put in place by the mayor of Washington DC Ahmed GaberReuters

        President-elect Joe Biden noted on Thursday the double standard in law enforcement’s response to the breaching of Capitol Hill by an insurrectionist mob and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters demanding racial justice in the United States.

        “No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they would have been treated very, very differently than a mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol,” Biden said in a speech on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, where he was introducing nominees for his Department of Justice.

        “We all know that’s true. And it is unacceptable.”

        During Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests that erupted across the country in the middle of 2020, law enforcement deployed overwhelming force in dozens of cities, including the use of chemical dispersants, rubber bullets and hand-to-hand combat with largely peaceful crowds and some unruly vandals and looters. More than 14,000 were arrested.

        On Wednesday, police said 68 arrest were made, the majority for breaking a curfew put in place by the mayor of Washington, DC. This, despite the fact that several weapons seized and improvised explosive devices found. Members of a wilding mob were seen being escorted from the premises, some not even in handcuffs.

        Vice President Kamala Harris, a former attorney general of California, said the US justice system does not apply in the same way to white and Black people in the US, rich and poor, and pledged to address the disparity.

        “The challenge we’re facing in our country is about more than the actions of the few we watched yesterday,” she said on Thursday.

        “It’s about how to reform how to transform a justice system that does not work equally for all,” she said, “a justice system that is experienced differently depending on whether you’re white or Black.”


        Activists and commentators rushed to blast what they said was a blatant display of racist double standards when it comes to policing Black protesters versus a mob of largely white supporters of President Donald Trump.

        “When Black people protest for our lives, we are all too often met by National Guard troops or police equipped with assault rifles, shields, tear gas and battle helmets,” the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation said in a statement.

        “When white people attempt a coup, they are met by an underwhelming number of law enforcement personnel who act powerless to intervene, going so far as to pose for selfies with terrorists,” it said.

        Rioters breached US Capitol security on Wednesday. This was the police response when it was Black protesters on DC streets last year

        https://edition.cnn.com/2021/01/07/us/police-response-black-lives-matter-protest-us-capitol/index.html

        As hundreds of supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol, breaking windows and wreaking havoc, politicians and activists were among the many who drew comparisons between the police response on Wednesday to that of last year's Black Lives Matter protests.

        The death of George Floyd -- a Black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck -- in May of 2020 prompted hundreds of protests nationwide over the summer. In many cities, including the nation's capital, police met protesters with tear gas, violence and arrests.
        National Guard troops were deployed to the Lincoln Memorial on June 2 2020 during protests held in Washington DC over the death of George Floyd
        However, Wednesday's protests, many pointed out, were different. The Black Lives Matter Global Network, one of the most well-known organizations fighting for the well-being of Black people, described Wednesday's riots as a "coup."
          The group said it was "one more example of the hypocrisy in our country's law enforcement response to protest."
          "When Black people protest for our lives, we are all too often met by National Guard troops or police equipped with assault rifles, shields, tear gas and battle helmets," the group said in a statement. "Make no mistake, if the protesters were Black, we would have been tear gassed, battered, and perhaps shot."
          Here's a look at the protests from last year, compared to those on Wednesday.

          Hundreds of pro-Trump protesters on Wednesday stormed the Capitol and filled the steps of the building. In some images, officers could be seen deploying pepper spray. Tear gas was also deployed, but it's not clear whether by protesters or police, and people wiped tears from their eyes while coughing.

          Members of the DC National Guard, armed and wearing camouflage uniforms, stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial last June, as crowds of demonstrators held a peaceful protest following several days of demonstrations.
          During Wednesday's events, rioters had already made it inside the building before the DC National Guard was activated.
          January 6, 2021
          A livestream video of the Wednesday's events appears to show a Capitol Hill police officer taking a selfie with a rioter inside the building. The snippet of livestream posted online is short, so it's unclear what prompted the interaction -- or what followed.CNN has reached out to the Capital Hill Police for comment regarding the incident.
          June 1, 2020
          Before Trump made his remarks at the Rose Garden last June, police near the White House released tear gas and fired rubber bullets at protesters in an effort to disperse the crowd for the President's planned visit to the St. John's Episcopal Church.
          Earlier in the day, Trump had encouraged the nation's governors to more aggressively target protesters in their states.
          After speaking, Trump walked past protesters to the church for a photo-op.

          The storming of America's Capitol building by rioters elicited plenty of responses. Here's what world leaders had to say

          Share

          The unprecedented scenes in the US capitol of Washington DC have drawn responses ranging from condemnation to almost satisfaction from America's allies and enemies across the globe.

          Key points:

          • France's President Emmanuel Macron said his country believes in the "strength of American democracy"
          • Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said the riots were evidence of the failure of Western democracy
          • China compared the reaction from US media to the reaction they had to protests in Hong Kong

          Four people died in the violence, including a woman who was shot by police, as supporters of President Donald Trump violently occupied the US Capitol as Congress held a joint session to count the electoral college votes and certify Joe Biden's election victory.

          The attempt to overturn America's presidential election had elected representatives crouching under desks and donning gas marks, while police futilely tried to barricade the building, one of the most jarring scenes ever to unfold in a seat of American political power.

          Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described the scenes in Washington as "distressing".

          "We condemn these acts of violence and look forward to a peaceful transfer of Government to the newly elected administration in the great American democratic tradition," he posted on Twitter.

          New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said on Twitter she had "no doubt democracy will prevail".

          "Democracy — the right of people to exercise a vote, have their voice heard and then have that decision upheld peacefully should never be undone by a mob," she tweeted.

          "Our thoughts are with everyone who is as devastated as we are by the events of today."

          A Shattering Blow to America’s Troubled Democratic Image

          The mob in Washington attempting to disrupt the peaceful transition of American power also posed a threat to all democracies.

          PARIS — The choreography was unusual: President Emmanuel Macron of France, standing before the Stars and Stripes, declaring in English that “We believe in the strength of our democracies. We believe in the strength of American democracy.”

          And so the presidency of Donald Trump draws to a close with a French leader obliged to declare his faith in the resilience of American democracy, a remarkable development. Mr. Macron’s wider point was clear enough: The mob of Trump loyalists in Washington attempting to disrupt the peaceful transition of American power also posed a threat to all democracies.

          Communities of color call reaction to chaos at U.S. Capitol a ‘double standard’

          ‘It’s clearly white privilege and white supremacy at its best’

          WASHINGTON, D.C. – Race issues in America have longed defined how we shape chapters of our history. After protests against systemic racism and injustice last summer, Wednesday’s storming of the U.S. Capitol is no different.

          Images of rioters breaking down barriers, breeching building security and invading the Capitol can produce insurmountable opinion.

          A challenge from some is to look at the group of mostly-white rioters and imagine if they were Black.

          “That would have never been permitted if all of those folks were Black folks,” said Rev. Reginald A. Early, president of the Rockbridge County NAACP.

          As dusk falls on 24 hours of confusion, chaos, and melee in our nation’s capital, some are left feeling that the images of throngs of people storming one of the most protected buildings portrays a double standard.

          “Most people with a conscious can’t deny what they saw,” said Dr. Deneen Evans, a counselor with focus on race management at Mosaic Mental Wellness and Health in Roanoke. “We know what would have happened if that had been 30,000…forget 30,000…100 people of color.”

          Pastor Bryan Moss of Lynchburg was on the streets during last summer’s protests for racial justice, which many feel garnered more reaction from police and local leaders.

          “They are going to defer to the rioting and the burning of Target and things of that nature,” said Lynchburg pastor and activist Bryan Moss. “They’re going to say nothing was burned, you know? It still doesn’t compare.”

          The NAACP is calling for President Trump’s removal.

          Here at home, local leaders share the sentiment.

          “It’s clearly white privilege and white supremacy at its best,” said Early.

          In the overnight hours following the riots, the hashtag #whiteprivilege was trending as some people called out what they call “hypocrisy.” Others are questioning why race is being tied into Wednesday’s riots. Dr. Evans said even the simplest act can set off race-based triggers.

          “We’re back at race because it’s systemic. It’s part of the disease of society,” said Dr. Evans. “Why, if they’re feeling like this, is it hurting us 10 times more. We have seen this over-and-over again.”

          “Racism is alive and well. Bigotry is alive and well. Injustice is alive and well. Inequity is alive and well. White privilege and white supremacy is alive and well in this country,” stated Rev. Early. “Yesterday was crystal clear proof. Crystal clear proof.”

          While the path to better days is yet unknown, the pain of many, as stated, is crystal clear.

          What makes America great is that despite Trump's coup attempt, a day later, its back to business as usual, and Trump, and the mob he incited, will have to deal with the consequences. 

          The next President will still be sworn in as scheduled, as will the next Congress....There's not a lot of countries capable of such a robust response, and possessed of such resilience.  ;)

          1. Courthouse in Portland - months ago. A federal courthouse in Portland was assaulted nightly by ANTIFA. Fireworks and other incendiary items thrown daily and officers attacked. Only recently did Mayor Ted Wheeler ordered it to stop. It was going on for months. Did Biden and Harris condemned that?


          2. BLM took over a portion of Seattle and named it CHAZ/CHOP. Not criticized by Democrats and the media. People not in the US did not even knew about it. Trump wanted to send the National Guard to restore peace but the Seattle mayor rejected it. She even called it the SUMMER OF LOVE. Did Biden and Harris condemned that?


          3. What about all those statues pulled down? Did Biden and Harris condemned that?

          4. How about that video of congresswoman Maxine Waters inciting VIOLENCE against Trump supporters. There's a video on that I can show you. Where was the media on that? Did Biden and Harris condemned that?

          5. And what about CNN's Chris Cuomo saying "who says protests are supposed to be peaceful"? we all know HE IS A BIDEN supporter and Trump hater. Did Biden and Harris condemned that?


          6. What about this statement from AOC?







          7. And who can forget this MSNBC anchor saying "Protest is not unruly" despite what is happening behind him




          These Democrats were the ones who "normalized" violence. Don't tell us that these are all Trump's fault and he incites violence.

          And you think these MOFOS have the credibility to say what is VIOLENT AND WHAT IS NOT?



          You're all HYPOCRITES!!!! STOP PRETENDING to be on the side of logic and reason and law and order.

          3. What about all those statues pulled down? Did Biden and Harris condemned that?

          4. How about that video of congresswoman Maxine Waters inciting VIOLENCE against Trump supporters. There's a video on that I can show you. Where was the media on that? Did Biden and Harris condemned that?

          5. And what about CNN's Chris Cuomo saying "who says protests are supposed to be peaceful"? we all know HE IS A BIDEN supporter and Trump hater. Did Biden and Harris condemned that?


          6. What about the statement from AOC before that protests are supposed to make people uncomfortable?




          These Democrats were the ones who "normalized" violence. Don't tell us that these are all Trump's fault and he incites violence.



          You're all HYPOCRITES!!!! STOP PRETENDING to be on the side of logic and reason and law and order.

          What makes America great is that despite Trump's coup attempt, a day later, its back to business as usual, and Trump, and the mob he incited, will have to deal with the consequences. 

          The next President will still be sworn in as scheduled, as will the next Congress....There's not a lot of countries capable of such a robust response, and possessed of such resilience.  ;)


          Trump realized yesterday he is not a king.
