Storming the Capitol was cool in 2018

​What a difference two years makes. On October 4, 2018, taking over the Capitol was just another form of protest.
On that date, The Hill reported, "More than 300 people were taken into custody by police on Capitol Hill after descending on a pair of Senate office buildings Thursday afternoon to protest the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee.
 
"The vast majority of the arrests, 293, were a result of protests in the Hart Senate Office Building, where protesters crowded in the atrium. Loud chants could be heard throughout the building, which is structured so the hallways of each floor open up and look out onto the first floor.
 
"Those arrested in Hart were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, according to Capitol Police. Another nine people were arrested on the fourth floor of Dirksen Senate Office Building and charged with unlawful demonstrations."

CNN also called the crowd protesters.

On Wednesday, CNN called pro-Trump protesters who stormed the Capitol "rioters."

NPR called them "far-right insurrectionists."

In 2018, NPR called the anti-Kavanaugh crowd "demonstrators" and titled its coverage of the storming: " 'We Believe Survivors': Demonstrators Throng Capitol Hill To Protest Kavanaugh"

CNN gushed in 2018, "Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski were arrested in Kavanaugh protests."

The story included a tweet from Ratajkowski, who tweeted, "Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power."

Benny Johnson tweeted back, "You're joking, right? Arrested?

"I watched the cops walk up to you and ask politely if you wanted to be arrested. You & Amy Schumer said 'yes.' Then you both just sat comfortably on the floor until the cops gave you special wristbands & politely escorted you out

"I have video."

Being arrested was good for their brand as both got lucrative endorsement contracts for tampons (Schumer) and perfume (Ratajkowski).

Capitol Police shot and killed a protester on Wednesday. She was an Air Force veteran.

In 2018, there were no calls to remove Senator Kamala Harris for riling people up.

And no Democrat senator said she was going to vote against the appointment but upon seeing the protest inside Senate office buildings, she was so ashamed that she would vote for Kavanaugh.

Contrast and compare to Kelly Loeffler's waffling. This shows feminism has achieved its goal of equality because she's as big a weasel as any man.

Well, except Mitt Romney. No one is his equal. He gives weasels a bad name.

White House staffers are leaving after Wednesday's protests by pro-Trump demonstrators. They figure they can devote the next 2 weeks full-time to landing a new gig. Where they land will tell you how loyal they were to the president and his supporters. The bigger the salary, the bigger the weasel.

Book deals are the biggest tell. Can Bill Barr top Kellyanne Conway's advance, or will he have to settle for the mere $2 million that John Bolton landed?

In 2018, the press was ho-hum about the taking over of Senate offices. 
Twitter is calling the protest on Wednesday an insurrection.

The way the media frames protests matters, which is why they support the anti-American ones and attack the patriotic ones.

The press will be protected from the reprisals that are coming.

Well, maybe not Fox.

But look for full federal funding of NPR in the next round of covid 19 relief.

  3. Please continue to do what you do Don. As long as we can still access an internet, we need voices of sanity, even howling in the wilderness. The battle may be over, but the war is not.
    I've never used FB or Twitter. Still waiting for alternative platforms to show staying power. Fortunately, we were told in the early days of the internet that it was designed to treat censorship as damage and route around it. May that continue to be the case.

  4. We've seen this movie before.

    They toppled statues.
    They rioted and destroyed businesses.
    They rigged an election.
    They burned down a parliament building and said another group did it.

    That was the easy part.

    Then it took a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread.
    They relocated people to death camps.

    Green New Deal
    Agenda 21
    Agenda 2030
    Climate Change
    Multinational treaties

    All give them the plan they need.

    In our upcoming sequel, we know the Deep State will play the part of the Nazis. My question is:
    Who will play the part of "The Jews"?

  5. Just so we get it out to as many people as possible, video of Trump people pulling Antifa types away from defacing the Capitol.

    Yeah, Fake News will suppress it, but get it out there so the world can see what really happened.

    We don't even know the names of the 2 men and woman who "died" yesterday. The FIB is going to investigate,

    2. Here's what I think happened, from the "cell phone" video evidence that we have.

      At some point, the police (capitol? DC?) took down barricades on one side of the building and let MAGA protestors in - peacefully. At the same time, on another side of the building, antifa types either broke in or were allowed to break in (coincidental co-temporal simultaneous access to the building unlikely). That let them get violence from the antifa types, but have enough MAGA people in the building to blame it on them.

      A set-up and a "Reichstag fire" indeed...

      Delete
    3. As edutcher stated, that is the people's house. MAGA supporters have a right to be there, just like the other group as Don pointed out in this blog post, where allowed there, to air their grievances. We've long known about the double standards the media uses in their treatment of MAGA supporters.

      The gaslighting by the media is only working for the traitors, and those minority who voted for the brain dead, corrupt and compromised china doll.

      For too many people, having an overinflated opinion of yourself is considered a qualification. Most "politicians" are now like that...

    4. I saw a post at another site saying that people like Pence, or any of the cowards in CONgress think they will get away with their dirty deeds, and so feel no remorse. Indeed, many of them have. And for far too long.

      They've never had a Lin Wood tweet their dirty deeds out to the public. It is starting to scare some.

  9. Oh noes! Facebook (Zuker) bans POTUS:

    "The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.

    His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect -- and likely their intent -- would be to provoke further violence.

    Following the certification of the election results by Congress, the priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.

    Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

    We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete."

    https://www.facebook.com/zuck/posts/10112681480907401

    I have to admire the chutzpa of using the term "lawful" when discussing the transition of power. Because a treasonous and cowardly CONgress certified fraud. That Zuker assisted with.

    I can smell the fear in his rhetoric. He knows. Zucker, you're going to get a huge surprise when Trump is sworn in on Jan 20, 2021. Your ASSets will be seized. And it could not happen to a more deserving liar and thief.

  14. Excellent column Don.

    One point. I don’t believe in coincidences.

    For this reason, I don’t believe it is a coincidence the parents of Mitt Romney (Pierre Delecto) gave him the name “Willard” the name of the most well-known (at least o Baby Boomers) RAT 🐀.

    I don’t care if Willard the human Rat 🐀 was born before “Willard” the movie star rat became a star. Willard is a rat.

    Don’t insult weasels by lumping them in with Willard Romney - weasels can find you in West Virginia, and I wouldn’t piss them off by limping them in with Willard Romney.

    And yeah, the “news” media are propagandists for the Democrat Party and Red China. Hammer that point home for anyone with an open mind.

  17. There were no guns, explosives or zip ties present in the atrium of the senate office building in 2018. No one, in 2018, defecated in the building, ransacked anything or stole anything. No one was killed at that building in 2018. And that wasn't our Capital. And yet - there were 300 arrests! If you seriously consider these two incidences equivalent, then I feel sorry for you.

    Not a whole lot of destruction, damage, theft, or death threats.
    And they were ALL arrested. PEACEFULLY.
    THAT is the difference between "protest" and "riot"
