Editorial | Trump Is to Blame for Capitol Attack – The New York Times

“President Trump and his Republican enablers in Congress incited a violent attack Wednesday against the government they lead and the nation they profess to love. This cannot be allowed to stand.

Mr. Trump’s seditious rhetoric prompted a mob of thousands of people to storm the U.S. Capitol building, some breaking onto the House and Senate floors, where the nation’s elected representatives had gathered to perform their constitutional duty of counting electoral votes and confirming the election of Joe Biden as president.

It is fitting that some carried the Confederate flag as they attacked the seat of American government and forced the suspension of congressional debate. They shattered windows and broke doors, clashing with overwhelmed security forces as they shouted their support for Mr. Trump and their defiance of the lawful results of the 2020 election. One woman was killed. The nation’s leaders were sent scurrying for shelter.

Explosives were found in the Capitol and multiple locations around Washington. Pro-Trump protests also shut down statehouses around the country.”

  1. Screw YOU. It was ANTIFA posing as Trump supporters. A few idiots may have joined in but ANTIFA led the way. You aren’t as smart as you think you are and America is not as dumb as you think we are.
