On January 6th, 2020 several individuals gathered in a peaceful protest to show support for President Donald Trump and question the 2020 Presidential Election Outcome.
It is estimated that nearly 750,000 people gathered in Washington D.C., but not all were Pro Trump supporters. 4 Charter Buses were escorted into Washington D.C. by Washington State Troopers and Washington Police loaded with ANTIFA members. It is unclear how many other Anti Trump groups were there as well.
Social Media was ablaze with Facebook Live videos of the events and speeches held during the day.
At some point, Pro-Trump supporters laid down the meatal barriers that had been placed by security and Police to prevent anyone from coming within a certain distance of the White House. Mainstream Media has reported these protesters as having a Mob mentality. But as we look at some of the videos taken one can see that there was in fact the opposite of a mob mentality. In one video taken one sees that the crowd is in fact moving slowly towards the White House in a calm orderly fashion. It reminds one of the Civil Riots marches from the ’60s.
Reports have also come in that several homemade explosives were found throughout the White House grounds, but this can not be confirmed as these alleged explosives were disposed of by Law Enforcement nearly immediately.
Amist, multiple reports surrounding the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt and the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, it is still undetermined when or even if there was any true riotous behavior on behalf of the Pro-Trump ralliers.
Several Social Media videos that have been slowly disappearing off of sites such as Facebook and Twitter show a calm crowd marching in unison towards the White House steps. That is not to say that there weren’t any individuals with a different mentality in participation.
In days following the event the FBI has interviewed several individuals who were present at the protest. Asking them for names of individuals they were there with.
Also, several altered photographs have emerged on social media claiming to have been photographs taken at the event, the following being one of the more shared altered photographs.
It is also being stated that the individuals who entered the White House were allowed to enter by someone within the building. Whether this is true or not one must consider the security measures that are in place at the White House.
Another question that has arisen was the level of Police presents at this event after numerous reports from Federal Agencies suggesting a hightend security presents was suggested. So, why was this all ignored?
In the aftermath of all this, several people have closed their social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter feeling they are being censored for support of Trump and limiting the truth of what actually did occur at the event on January 6th, 2020.
