Many in the mob that allegedly stormed Congress on January 6, 2021, did not wear masks; they posted selfies and uploaded them to their social media accounts and some shared their ‘fine accomplishments’ with family and friends. Not too bright but then again, they just made law enforcement’s job a lot easier.
Wednesday’s insurrection/failed coup attempt resulted in 4 dead and 52 arrests. Capitol Hill Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert J. Contee said 47 of the 52 arrests were related to violations of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s 6 p.m. curfew, with 26 of those involving people arrested on U.S. Capitol grounds.
Several others were arrested on charges related to carrying unlicensed or prohibited firearms.
The MAGAts who allegedly stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday included conspiracy theorists linked to QAnon and the Proud Boys — two right-wing extremist factions that Trump repeatedly refused to condemn during his election campaign last year.
Meet ‘America’s finest’ who allegedly took part in yesterday’s insurrection/failed coup attempt:
- Jake Angeli — known by followers as the QAnon Shaman lives in Arizona. He’s attended pro-Trump protests in Arizona, including demonstrations outside the Maricopa County vote-counting center. He thrives on QAnon conspiracy theories and has posted violent memes on Facebook declaring “we shall have no real hope to survive the enemies arranged against us until we hang the traitors lurking among us.”
- A newly elected member of the West Virginia House of Delegates has been seen in a video as part of the group of pro-Trump rioters who forced their way into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
- Del. Derrick Evans, a Republican from Wayne County, W.Va., won his first term as a state lawmaker in the November election and was sworn in last month. Video streaming on his Facebook page throughout the day showed him on the Capitol grounds and just outside the building.
- Meet Nick Ochs, the founder of Proud Boys Hawaii and failed Hawaii state legislature candidate:
- In an interview with CNN, Ochs stated:
We didn’t have to break in, I just walked in and filmed. There were thousands of people in there — they had no control of the situation. I didn’t get stopped or questioned.”
- Perhaps, Joe Scarborough is on to something:
- Tim Gionet, who goes by “Baked Alaska,” live streamed a video of himself inside the building for more than 25 minutes. It has since been removed. Gionet also attended the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
- Here’s Baked Alaska’s BFF, Nick Fuentes, a Holocaust denying, Neo-Nazi:
- Richard “Bigo” Barnett, the leader of a pro-gun rights group in Gravette, Arkansas is the MAGAt seen kicking back in Speaker Pelosi’s office.
- Barnett removed an envelope from Speaker Pelosi’s office but claimed he didn’t steal it because he left her a quarter. Nice of him, huh?
- Miss Ashli died yesterday:
- There seems to be a bit of confusion among these Domestic Terrorists. Should they take credit for their DEPLORABLE behavior and show the world what stellar ‘patriots’ they are or…blame Antifa?
