Violent seditionists attack U.S. Capitol, chasing cozy lawmakers from their perches; Iowa’s delegation safe

Donald Trump lost the 2020 Presidential election by a wide margin. Today he whipped hundreds of followers into a violent frenzy, and they attacked the U.S. Capitol.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The World looked on in awe and shock as violent seditionists and rioters taking direction from Donald Trump set upon the United States Capitol building Wednesday, taking over offices, injuring police and daring anyone to stop them.

The trouble reached a crescendo Wednesday after Republicans appeared to lose the Senate to Democrats the night before and Donald Tump took to a podium in Washington and whipped his salivating, bewildered followers into a frenzy. By afternoon, the demonstrators had turned into rioters and seditionists who committed serious crimes in storming the United States Capitol building.  They broke windows, harmed police, invaded the offices of lawmakers and caused the National Guard to be called up.  The crowd had not totally dispersed by the time of publication this evening.

Iowa’s delegation in Congress escaped the madness and chaos as the nation’s elected body of Representatives and Senators performed a ceremonial duty in certifying the Electoral College, which Joe Biden won easily over Trump on November 3, 2020.

Ernst

Senator Joni Ernst, who survived a brutal re-election campaign in November herself, said, “I served in uniform to defend the right to peaceful protest. What’s happening at the Capitol right now is not peaceful nor a protest. It’s anarchy, & a betrayal of the American ideals we all hold dear. My staff and I are safe. Thanks to Capitol Police for your selfless work.”

Grassley

Senator Charles Grassley said, “Today’s violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was an attack on American democracy itself. I condemn today’s violence in the strongest terms & perpetrators deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I also thank Capitol Police for protecting our Capitol & staff.”

Hinson

First District Rep. Ashley Hinson, freshly-elected to office in the same election Trump lost, said, “President Trump needs to address the nation and call for an end to this violence and disruption to our democratic process. This is not how we do business in the United States of America.”

Miller-Meeks

Second District Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks, also freshly-elected in an ultra-close election this past November and is still facing an unresolved challenge, said, “You can protest and be peaceful. Storming government buildings and attacking law enforcement officers is unacceptable. My staff and me are safe and sheltering in place.”

Axne

Third District Rep. Cindy Axne said, “My staff and I are safe. We are sheltering in place, awaiting more info as we learn that protesters have breached the Capitol. The US Capitol Police are protecting us. These people are attacking Congress at the invitation of @realDonaldTrump. Please sir, tell them to stop.”

Feenstra

Fourth District Rep. Randy Feenstra said, “It’s every American’s right to protest peacefully. Violence is never the answer. Thank you Capitol Police for working today & every day to keep us safe. If you or someone you know are a part of the protest, please remain peaceful & ask others to do the same. The world is watching.”

Donald Trump appeared to believe himself a victim in his political career today after igniting the lawlessness.  After attempting re-election but losing by millions of votes to Joe Biden and reflecting on the day’s lawlessness (and at least one death, so far), Trump tweeted, “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!”

Trump’s tweet was flagged for risk of causing further violence.

        No, George soros mutts, paid by him, caused all the commotion. Watch the security videos, capital hill police moved the barricades for them, then led them through the building, showing them where to go. All an elaborate con, to divide the nation even more. All you idiots are falling for it hook, line and sinker, because the media is telling you too.

    I didn’t like when he was voted in four year ago. I also didn’t much care for Hillary either, but when the crazy man was voted in. I didn’t cry or pout the election was stolen. I just thought a lot of people have gone off there rocker, but I accepted and moved on. I suggest you do the same.

    NO FRAUD! NO EVIDENCE! People are DYING by the thousands because of his response to covid.

    He can’t do his job and should be removed immediately.

    Everyone is tired Mr. President. Tired of being lied to.
    Tired of being taken advantage of.
    Tired of our voice not being heard.
    Tired of big government.
    Tired of losing our paychecks.
    Tired of crooked education system
    Tired of being tired.
    This may be the last stand any patriot has to take back
    Their voice,
    Their freedom,
    Their little paycheck,
    Their children’s future

      Your fear is showing. Would you like a hankie and a blankie? Maybe a pacifier?

      Gas will never hit $20 a gallon nor will taxes raise significantly for you to cry over missing a dollar here or there. You celebrated a huge tax cut for the rich that us, our children, and grandchildren will be paying for quite a long time. Hypocrite.

    “Played” doesn’t illustrate or mentally subjugate the true destructive intent of the reality being used to destroy the freedoms guaranteed to this nation and its citizens! This country is being destroyed by a machine that is so mesmerizing, and powerful, it appears so attractive the average American citizen cannot resist. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will exponentially diminish within months, not years!!

      You dip you don’t need a gun to make your point.

      Although I am for the 2nd amendment. I don’t agree with maniacs carry them around just showing off.

      I am pretty sure that is not what your gun safety classes taught you. If you haven’t taken the classes it should be a law you do.

      No. This is conspiracy theory and a tactic of mixing truth with falsehood that you are hopefully only getting from fringe sites like Breitbart, OAN, Bongino, others. I personally witnessed pickup trucks driving through Iowa this past weekend with Trump flags that said “DC BOUND” scrawled on the windows. They came from far and wide to cheer Trump on. They were armed, enthusiastic – and delusional. Hopefully, as the FBI claims, they will all be sorted out, identified, charged and tried.

        Yes, seemscompletely feasible. A bunch of other men carry nothing more than a trump hat and a confederate or Nazi flag, threw a rock through the window of the nations capital, and let themselves in. If you believe that, you are an exceptional level of stupid

    Every one of those who broke into the Capital building should be charged with murder since their illegal acts caused that woman’s death.

    By no means do I have sympathy for the woman who died. She was committing a crime and thought she was priviliged enough to be fine for her to do. Do the crime, pay the fine.
