  1. A show of white privilege and white supremacy. Why was the national guard refused to be deployed? Oh because these are white protestors. How were they able to get inside of the capitol, inside offices, accessing staff’s emails and computers? Oh because the police didn’t really do much to prevent them, didn’t shoot them dead before they could get in or anything. The stark difference between how these illegal trespassers and vandalizers are being treated by our government officials and law enforcement and the way Black Lives Matter protestors are treated is absolutely disgusting.

  2. Also it’s about time Twitter, actually it’s too late. Should have suspended his account LONG TIME AGO. Seriously, how is social media of our government officials being monitored? Why has he gotten away with tweeting so many calls to violence up until now?

  3. No helicopters, no personnel carriers, no semi-automatic weapons.

    It’s interesting the way BLM is subtly being blamed for the inept police response, as in: “Because police were previously criticized they were told to stand back this time”

    It’s interesting how allowing the riot to run rampant undermined attempts by lawmakers to object to the electoral college vote.

    It’s interesting how people want First Amendment rights for themselves but want Twitter to deny Donald Trump the freedom to tweet. Free speech for me; censorship for thee.

  4. It’s interesting how the ruckus at the Capitol allowed Biden’s nomination of Merrick Garland for Attorney General to fly under the radar.
    I’m sure the black people who voted for Joe Biden are pleased.
