Coup related tab dump

These Black Capitol Police Officers Describe Fighting Off "Racist Ass Terrorists". You can kinda see the light bulbs in some of these descriptions of the attackers:

The officer even described coming face to face with police officers from across the country in the mob. He said some of them flashed their badges, telling him to let them through, and trying to explain that this was all part of a movement that was supposed to help.

“You have the nerve to be holding a blue lives matter flag, and you are out there fucking us up,” he told one group of protestors he encountered inside the Capitol. “[One guy] pulled out his badge and he said, ‘we’re doing this for you.’ Another guy had his badge. So I was like, ‘well, you gotta be kidding.’”

These Black Americans are not surprised by what they saw at the Capitol this week. They reflect on how a mostly White mob could trash the Capitol and go home, when they would be arrested or worse.

The people in Congress who would have been safe if the rioters had gotten to them are calling for unity from the people who would have been killed if the rioters had gotten to them.

An example of one of the gormless traitors calling for "unity", last month: GOP Congressman: We Need The Senate To Investigate Hunter Biden — Rep. Ken Buck told a rally in Georgia that an investigation of Hunter Biden is “plan B” if Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the election fail.

Police departments across the U.S. open probes into whether their own members took part in the Capitol riot. Ya think?

Helena Duke, 18, identified her mom in viral video footage from a fight which broke out near the Capitol during the insurrection, telling Newsweek she was "disappointed to be related to her".

"Hi mom remember the time you told me I shouldn't go to BLM protests bc they could get violent ... this you?," Helena Duke wrote on Twitter in response to the video.

Between her and Claudia Conway, I think the kids are alright.

Officer resigns as Army investigates her involvement in Washington rally that led to U.S. Capitol riot

A psychological operations officer who the Army is investigating for leading a group of people from North Carolina to the rally in Washington that led up to the deadly riot in the U.S. Capitol had already resigned her commission, CBS News correspondent David Martin reports. Commanders at Fort Bragg said they were reviewing Captain Emily Rainey's involvement in last week's events in the nation's capital, but she said she acted within military regulations and that no one in her group broke the law.
