As most of us know, there were protests and violence at the Capitol building in Washington D.C.

These protests were started by Trump's call to protest the theft of his supposed landslide victory.

The protests got out of hand and became violent. Including breaching security of the capitol building itself.

I believe Trump's call to action was not meant to incite violence, but he did not do as much as he could have to end it (Pence did much better).

Peaceful protests are a constitutional right. Violence is not. Several people took advantage of the situation to cause chaos.

Give people the benefit of the doubt, and do not assume conspiracies until more information is available. Lots of people are quick to accuse. Wait for more information before jumping to conclusions. This is new, starting yesterday. Calm down.

This started during Trump's presidential campaign. Everything he's done, Hitler did with the Nazi party before.

Of course there were people who wanted to peacefully protest the election results. But don't let the fascists hide behind those poor bastards.

Just like in Nazi Germany, I can tell you with absolute certainty, the majority of people who supported Hitler were at best upset about their country being attacked. The world didn't let the Nazis hide behind those, either.

@josias I've heard it wasn't violent but they did force their way into the building. At least to our new normal protests this one was peaceful, no burnt buildings.

@josias I will say Trumps video wasn't bad but it talked of peace and love and to go home. But the social media platoforms took it down stating tos and violence, etc.
