This riot is a peculiarly American combination of the storming of the Bastille and Animal House.
Even after the Capitol was breached, rioters penetrated the private rooms of ranking committee heads where sensitive and classified documents were kept. The whys and wherefores as to why any protester would do that demands much deeper introspection given the fact that this whole episode was spurred by a charade of the president trying incessantly to derail something as seminal to freedom as the vote.
The whole six weeks fueling of anger, rage, the insults by Trump meant to degrade and spawn distrust in the same American institutions which served us over the past 250 years, his insults to the SCOTUS calling them corrupt, incompetent and useless, the insinuation that they were damaging freedom is about as un-American as it has ever gotten. Not to mention his former slurs against US intelligence years ago, it has been a steady process with this president eroding the line between lawful and lawless which he has worked hard at.
It is no surprise that a major symbol of the US would be attacked by the people who were his strongest supporters. They wanted to hear him, and he gave them what they wanted.
These are not patriots by any definition of the word. Fake patriots who hate America who have spent much of their lives arming and wishing for a civil war. What they did to the capitol is what they wish to do to America.
Thank you. Apology accepted.
I'm genuinely concerned about the inauguration.
Trump won't be there and his MAGA supporters will consider any Republicans who attend to be traitors.
I REALLY hope security are assuming an attack will happen and are acting accordingly.

Michael Moore is a grossly obese multi-millionaire who makes money from promoting one lie after another.
You need to be more specific.
Which particular episode of The Awful Truth did you think was misleading?
Which of his documentaries blatantly misrepresented the facts he was using to put forward his argument?
Which chapter of which book was riddled with lies?
U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said on Sunday that the threat from violent extremist groups remains high after the deadly storming of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday by supporters of President Donald Trump.Read more from U.S.
You're not an American, so please MYOB
I'm not an American either.
Citizens of the rest of the world may not be American, but we all know who has his thumb on the nuclear trigger.
If that thumb is attached to an egocentric maniac lusting after retention of power then WE have a right to be concerned.
But you aren't ignoring Michael Moore or calling him a liar based on his weight!
Yes, I agree. I was replying to the guy dismissing Michael Moore. It was the simplest shorthand way to tell him to hush. I did not mean to insult thoughtful people on here, from any country.
