So this is sure interesting.

While everyone is trying to blame Trump for inciting an insurrection with the speech he gave at the Ellipse on the 6th, they apparently failed to notice the timeline of events.

The first wave of protesters arrived at the Capitol at about 12:40pm.

President Trump’s speech didn’t conclude until 1:11pm.

It is a 33-minute walk to the Capitol Building from the Ellipse, longer (45 minutes) with crowd-related delays.

The first people from Trump’s speech could have arrived at the Capitol no earlier than 1:56pm – a full hour and sixteen minutes after troublemakers arrived.

Rioters who breached the Capitol building would have had to leave before Trump’s speech even began (at 12pm precisely) to make it in time for the events as they are detailed by authorities.

We’ve repeatedly been told Antifa did not infiltrate Trump supporters to instigate violence in what was otherwise a peaceful protest. But who is this inside the Capitol on the 6th? That’d be Utah native and BLM activist John Earle Sullivan. Article here:… Image
In July, John Sullivan was charged over a BLM-antifa riot where drivers in Provo, Utah were threatened and one was shot.

Here he is in DC in August threatening to “burn this shit down” and rip Trump out of the White House while claiming to be armed.

Anti-Trumper John Sullivan can be heard in this video inside the Capitol on the 6th saying, “We gotta... we gotta burn this. We gotta get this shit burnt.”

Anyone remember this fun time? I saw a tweet from AOC hyperventilating about gallows at the Capitol, but don’t remember her having the same (or any) reaction when this happened.

Protesters Put Life-Size Donald Trump Doll in Guillotine Outside White House…
I’m just gonna make a thread...
Here we have that time Trump was inaugurated and protesters threw rocks and bottles at police, sending some to the hospital. I don’t remember many (if any) on the left being very concerned about those police officers...… Image
