If you can’t shoot: You have to learn. NOW.

we will storm government buildings, kill police officers, guards, federal employees and agents and demand a recount.

In the weeks, days and hours leading up to Wednesday’s siege of Capitol Hill by President Donald Trump’s zealous supporters, the warning signs were clear: Online messages from hate groups and right-wing provocateurs agitating for civil war, the deaths of high-ranking lawmakers, and attacks on law enforcement.

As the dust settles and the country struggles to make sense of the violence that killed five people – including a Capitol Police officer – experts warn that calls for violence will only grow stronger before Inauguration Day, when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in as commander in chief.

We see … the rhetoric of these white supremacists, of this far right – they feel emboldened at this point, said Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, trails and confrontations of hatred. We expect this violence to get worse before it gets better.

Wednesday’s chaos – which erupted during a demonstration aimed at preventing Congress from certifying the results of Biden’s single-digit victory – showed a loss of control and a sudden severing of the bond that had held Trump, his supporters and the Republican leadership together for four years.

After rioters accused of barricading themselves attacked police officers, smashed windows and broke into a sacred building that had been burned down by the British army in 1814, Trump made a tepid plea to go home, though he repeated the lie that the election had been stolen. That night, Republican leaders, including Vice President Mike Pence and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, strongly condemned the rebels.

But all this seems to have little effect on the extreme right.

Trump will be on the 20th. Janvier has been sworn in for a second term! !! – pro-Trump online commentator thedonald.win said Thursday, a day after the siege. We can’t let the Communists win. Even if we have to burn DC to the ground. Tomorrow we take back Washington and take back our country! !!

Security concerns ahead of Biden’s inauguration

John Scott-Railton, a senior fellow at the Citizen Lab, a University of Toronto group that monitors cybersecurity, said he was very concerned about the inauguration.

While the general public was shocked by what happened (Wednesday) on Capitol Hill, in some corners, a kind of right-wing speech, what happened … is considered a success, he told CNN.

In the days and weeks leading up to the attack on the Capitol, there were many signs that the demonstration could turn violent.

Advancing Democracy, a non-partisan governance watchdog, has pointed out the red flags on social media. In the past six days, for example, there were 1,480 posts from QAnon-related accounts that mentioned the event and included offensive language. With regard to Speaking, the report states that many reports mention the war, including statements such as The War Begins Today.

Ali Alexander, a political activist who organizes pro-Trump rallies, including one on the Capitol lawn on Wednesday, accused the left of trying to push us into war. In late December, Alexander told his followers on Periscope that he and three GOP congressmen, the MPs, were representatives. Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs of Arizona and Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama are planning something big.

It was about creating momentum and pressure and then changing the hearts and minds of members of Congress that day who were still undecided or who had all seen and spoken in the streets : I can’t be on the other side of this crowd, Ali said, though he wasn’t asking for violence.

CNN contacted the offices of the three congressmen, but only Biggs responded with a statement from a spokesman who denied that he was in any way working with Alexander or any of the protesters.

MP Biggs is not at all aware that he has heard or met Alexander – let alone organised any part of the planned event with him, the spokesman said. He has not engaged with protesters or rioters, nor has he ever encouraged or facilitated a rally or demonstration. He has focused his research and arguments on working within the law to set a precedent for restoring the integrity of our elections and ensuring that all Americans – regardless of political affiliation – can once again have full confidence in our voting systems.

The Capitol Siege Watchdogs

Several organizations that monitor extremism on the Internet have made an announcement.

On the fourth. On January 1, the ADL published a lengthy blog post detailing threats of violence in connection with the upcoming rally.

In response to a user who wondered what would happen if Congress ignored evidence that President Trump won the election, the user wrote Storm the Capitol, the ADL said in a blog post.

Post added that while he was not aware of any credible threat of violence before January 6, the combination of the extremist presence at the rallies and the passionate nature of the rhetoric suggested the possibility of violence.

Also on the fourth. In January, a risk assessment by security firm G4S noted that current rhetoric indicates that violent actors, including armed militias, are likely to operate in the region between January 6 and the end of the year. January and inauguration day will be present.

The analysis cites numerous articles published in recent weeks in support of thedonald.win’s right-wing violence, including one in late December that argues that a real tactical victory, such as storming and occupying Congress, would be necessary to achieve the desired effect.

Another said the patriots, who are currently too cowardly to tolerate violence, are part of the problem.

Security experts said they were aghast at the inaction of law enforcement agencies.

Surprisingly, police have been much less aggressive as a result, said Jonathan Wood, head of global risk analysis at Control Risks in London. Many security analysts are surprised by the lack of security and the lack of a strong response.

Law enforcement caught red-handed

Federal and local law enforcement officials insist they had no idea the siege would take place.

There are no reports of a robbery on U.S. Capitol Hill, Washington Police Chief Robert Conti told a news conference Thursday.

Steven A. Sunday, who is resigning as chief of police on U.S. Capitol Hill after criticism of his apparent unwillingness to deal with violent crowds, said in a statement that the department has a solid plan to deal with First Amendment actions.

But make no mistake – those riots were not First Amendment actions, but criminal riots, he said Thursday.

As for security on opening day, the Secret Services have issued a statement saying that their plans for the event are longstanding.

The inauguration of the US president is fundamental to our democracy, the agency said in a statement. The safety of all participants at 59. The presidential inauguration is of the utmost importance.

Robert Dodge, president of Enterprise Risk Management at G4S, who issued the warning at 4. January, he said he had done so in the months leading up to the 6. The month of January was marked by a lot of hostile rhetoric, what we in our world call a threat indicator.

He added that the U.S. Capitol building does not appear to be adequately fortified.

People approaching the Capitol have seen the right amount of physical barriers, psychological barriers, like signs telling you not to cross that line or you will be arrested, he said. You saw windows break. Why aren’t some of them reinforced? It appears that there are still serious physical security issues on Capitol Hill that need to be addressed.

The Americans in Areahave picked up the misinformation from Area

It’s not just marginal groups that have picked up on the current momentum. On Wednesday, militias, white nationalists, well-known conspiracy theorists and other citizens who had challenged the certification mingled with the crowd on the Capitol lawn.

One of them was a Texas resident and former mayoral candidate, Jenny Cudd, whose campaign slogan was Jenny for mayor.

After denouncing what she called electoral fraud and stolen elections, she called for the death of those who committed treason.

All we need is a public execution, and then people will start behaving properly – just like it would help if we always had a firing squad for the death penalty, Cudd said. Let’s see if the public is suspended in our future because it is still considered a valid form of death by treason.

The day before the demonstrations, Cudd posted a video online in which she talks about the unrest the next day.

I don’t know what you think of the revolution, but I’m all for it, she said. Nobody really wants war, nobody wants bloodshed, but the government works for us and unfortunately seems to have forgotten that a bit, so if a revolution is needed, so be it.

OANN posted a photo of Cadd on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, showing her on Capitol Hill wearing the Trump flag around her like a cape. And that night she posted a video of her hotel drinking a beer and holding back her tears as she told her disciples what happened that day.

When Pence betrayed us, we decided to storm the Capitol, she said.

On Friday, Cudd told a local TV station that she had not done anything illegal.

I went well upstairs, and then the door to the Capitol was open, she said. Personally, I haven’t demolished anything.

In response to CNN’s request for comment on Friday, Cudd sent a link to a video in which she repeated a version of her local statement, saying the culture cancellation was in effect and that she had received multiple death threats and thousands of criticisms from a star in her company.

Joel Finkelstein, director of the Network Contagion Research Institute at Rutgers University, said conspiracies on the Internet have evolved from small, obscure sites like 8koon, frequented by QAnon supporters, to more popular sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. As a result, he said, many of the people attracted to Wednesday’s demonstrations were not extremists, but ordinary Americans who did not realize they had been lied to.

They are our neighbors – they are our neighbors and our friends, he said. These are people we all know. They did it on Facebook. They did it on Twitter. The threats to our democracy don’t just come from 8 channels. And they’re not just from Canon.

Some of the disturbing and aggressive social media conversations reflect what appears to be a growing animosity among Trump’s supporters toward Republican leaders.

I’m pretty sure watching Pelosi and Mitch swing through the ropes will draw more attention from sheep who don’t follow or care about politics, a commentator said on thedonald.win on Wednesday.

And as law enforcement has become increasingly active with right-wing extremist groups – the leader of the Proud Boys, Henry Enrique Tarrio, was arrested by Washington police on the eve of the protests on the 6th – the government has become increasingly active in fighting right-wing extremists. January arrests – experts noted a growing antipathy to the police in these circles, who tend to see themselves as allies of the men and women in uniform.

This creates a pretty dangerous situation, says Cassie Miller, senior research analyst at the Southern Poverty Law Center. Because not only can there be violent confrontations with the left, but this somehow increases the chances of a violent confrontation with the police.
