After the brutality we've seen all summer meted out to BLM protestors in the US, the contrast with the kid gloves used to deal with actual fascists trying to mount a coup by storming the seat of America last night was quite marked. Some very serious questions need to be asked about the nature of policing in the US and specifically how in the hell the Capitol police were so easily overwhelmed in what is supposed to be one of the most secure buildings in America. The world and his dog knew that was going to kick off yesterday, the Proud Boys and other fascist groups have been not just openly planning it but boasting about it on social media for weeks, yet the Capitol police were taken by surprise? Sure.

I was staggered that these people were seemingly given a free reign to basically wander about and sit and take selfies in desks and steal property from the building. Surely they are breaking the law by just being in the building and should have been arrested. There just didn't seem to be any attempt to stop what they were doing and try and arrest them. It was almost like a tourists day out for MAGA.

There was footage doing the rounds last night of cops posing for selfies with the rioters inside the building. The infiltration of US police, military and the Secret Service by the far right is well documented, hence why there has been so many examples over the summer of cops protecting far right counter protestors attacking BLM protests. The most extreme example obviously being the Kenosha murderer who was escorted off the scene by cops after killing two people.

TBF, once DC police arrived and started to push the rioters back last night the treatment was a bit more familiar, pushing people over, punching people who didn't move etc. Although that's still at the gentler end of the violence meted out to often peaceful BLM protestors. I wonder what the difference could possibly be?

The entire system needs an overhaul.

I don't think even Trump can be blamed for the inherent racism in their system. His actions have probably just highlighted how bad it really is.

No he can't, but he can be blamed for systematically enabling and inflaming it. And the people who enabled him to do so are every bit as guilty.

That video doing the rounds of a woman claiming she's been maced.

She's rubbing a fucking onion in her eye. She's trying to cover it with some sort of towel but you can still see the onion in her hand.

Ah, a quick look tells me that might be the case. I should have checked first.

She's still a massive twat, though.
