Rioters storm and occupy the US Capitol

I thought we should have a dedicated thread for this.

I am rather surprised but not shocked that there was not a more violent response. If the rioters were wearing colors other than red hats, I think there would have been.

Biden is speaking right now.

Trump is barely tweeting, although its probably his staff with access to his account.

They're just doing what the President told them to do with the tacit approval of the Republican party, which holds a Senate majority.

Why isn't someone on a huge speaker reading the riot act while police spray the crowd with tear gas and bean bags? Why weren't the first people through the door immediately tackled and arrested?

There was a larger show of force to get Trump across a street for a photo op.
Uniformed officers with long guns are in the building, looks like clearing offices.

Trump has taken to Twitter telling them they were robbed, just like him, but they should go home now. It's okay to be bitter, he's bitter too, but they should go home now.
Yeah, that'll do the trick.

Trump is finally speaking. He's still playing to the election conspiracy nonsense. But at least he's telling them to leave.

Don't see much in the way of calls for unity here:

Quote:
President-elect Joe Biden is addressing the nation from Wilmington, Delaware, calling on the pro-Trump "mob" to "pull back and allow the work of democracy to move forward".

"It's not a protest, it's an insurrection," Biden says, asking Donald Trump to "step up", go on television and "demand an end to this siege".

"Enough is enough," he says.

Trump just called the people storming the White House "Beautiful People" while making a weak attempt to tell them to go home.
Trump must be removed from office.
By any means Nessacary.

The crowd isn't even that big.

It was the police who shot a protestor.

There was an IED apparently found on the Capitol grounds.

If you are at work, it's the best place to let this all pass. By nightfall this will be mostly over and the vote count will continue.

The next event on the schedule is a taped speech by Trump.

Will it be "stand by and stand down" or will it be another proclamation that he won the election? I'm sure he's pleased with himself being all about revenge and all.

Well, he just told them to go home, so we'll see what happens.

ETA: Of course, he started by agitating them even further by insisting that the election was stolen.

It's possible he can stop them if he finally owns up to the fact that he lost the election. He won't though, because he's an insane coward and a sociopath. He doesn't really care that he's causing harm to anyone.

I've stood in streets with "electronic surveillance equipment" under threat of "conspiracy/terrorism" charges on many ocassions. I've exchanged names with people who spent time in jail after some of those experiences.

If the hammer doesn't come down for this, I don't know how I'll stomach it.

For reference (mostly 2 minutes about how he really won and it was a stolen election. At one point he tells them they can't "play into the hands of these people" —of course, IMPOTUS incited this):
