Chaos in Washington as Trump supporters storm Capitol and force lockdown of Congress - BBC News

Thousands of supporters of President Trump have stormed the US Capitol building, venting their anger at the victory of Joe Biden in the presidential election.
They forced the evacuation and lockdown of Congress, where lawmakers were preparing to approve the election result.
Shortly before the clashes President Trump had addressed his supporters near the White House telling them that he would never accept defeat.
President-elect Biden called on Mr Trump to tell his people to go home and eventually that was the message delivered from the White House.
Washington’s Mayor ordered a curfew as members of the US National Guard were deployed to protect the city.
Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by North America editor Jon Sopel in Washington and from Aleem Maqbool and Lebo Diseko at the Capitol.

    2:25 Oh yeah, an "angry mob" walking within barriers. I ask you people does THIS look like an angry, out of control mob? NO! They look more like "where did the tour guide go?" The TRUTH is, NOBODY was violent UNTIL D.C. police shot an innocent female protester...then it got violent.

    True American patriots engaging in peaceful protest is all this was based on the Democrat definitions used in the media last year with BLM and ANTIFA. Democrats incited mass riots for months during the pandemic with BLM and ANTIFA terrorists which caused billions in damages and dozens of deaths, and as dozens of buildings were burnt to the ground and thousands of lives were ruined, the Democrats and the mainstream media kept on calling them "mostly peaceful protests" while Democrat leaders defended the riots and the media ignored the damage done to cater to their Leftist agenda. They brainwashed the masses to rig an election and Big Tech helped them out. Now they want to shift all blame to Trump and cancel the Right for one small riot which he did not incite in the slightest and was nothing compared to the hundreds of riots caused by Democrats during the pandemic last year? What a joke. Fake News verified. Democrats are a disgrace. Ignorance and hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds. MAGA isn't going anywhere.

    Not sure if people realize this but the government CAN AND WILL consider the storming of the Whitehouse 1) Treason, in which case you can be put to death even if you consider it a " protest ".2) an act of civil war, you could've been shot on site. 3) they will find all that were there and arrest you for federal crimes and you'll do some prison time, that's IF you are not brought up on charges of an act of war or treason and you aren't going to be put to death by the U. S. Government. Good luck, you all CHOSE to be Trump's pawn now lay in the bed you made for yourselves by commiting crimes on a federal level and starting civil war by your actions 👏👍

    Big tech in cohorts with the democrats stole the latest election and people vented their anger on a group of people that live in an alternate universe far removed from the majorities daily toil to survive. Of course the elites in the white house were upset for no one has ever gotten that close to them before. So who let the angry mob in?. They wouldn't have gotten in through weight of numbers so someone sympathetic to their feelings with keys let them in to storm the white house. But no lets just blame the former president although I wouldn't put it past the democrats to have allowed the mob in so they have more to hang on Trump. "There's an angry mob outside if we let them in to rampage through the white house that's something else we can blame Trump for".

    After reading alot of history, I can say that these turn of events parallels the beginning of every empire's collapse. Storming a Building is never a good sign. Remember March to Versailles, Winter Palace Storm, etc.. I suspect this might be the beginning of the US's collapse and I won't be surprised if, in the next few years, the US will turn into chaos and be dissolved, more probable reason is another civil war. A civil war between the reds and the blues this time for sure.
