SCOOP: LA based far right streamer Christopher Brow (@wysiwygtv) participated in the #January6th DC insurrection/Capitol riot. He deleted his stream, hiding unseen evidence of assaults on police, Capitol breaches, & him trespassing.

I've obtained the footage & I'm releasing it.
Christopher Brow: "This is what being an American is about!"

After filming the opening assault on police & barricade rush, Brow moves forward & goes beyond restricted fences, trespassing on the lawn of the US Capitol. At 1:25 he falsely claims that nobody in the crowd is armed.
Christopher Brow moves up in front of the steps of the Capitol as the insurrectionists take combative positions against the police and climb the scaffolding. More barricades come down.
Brow: "They started to come through the barrier & everybody went. I had to kinda fight my way-"

Brow stands with Proud Boys, including Portland-based Eddie Block (Brow & Block met before reaching the Capitol). Proud Boys yell "TRAITORS!" at police & the stream temporarily cuts.
Violence intensifies. Police use mace & Proud Boys (along with other insurrectionists) throw barricades & projectiles at police. Insurrectionists yell "whose side are you on?!"

This is one of Capitol police's most vital defensive lines being breached & Christopher Brow is there.
"We just took the Capitol!"

Christopher Brow moves to the other side and films insurrectionists/Capitol rioters climbing the wall to the US Capitol.
Christopher Brow stops to talk to two far right militants who are recovering from tear gas or pepper spray. Brow tells them "this is the most amazing thing I've seen!"

When Brow leaves them, he walks towards the entrance and says "I'm going to the Capitol!"
Brow moves towards the building and sees some cops that don't push back. He gets within yards of the Capitol itself.

At 1:25 Brow says, "I had no idea I was live! I thought I was just recording." Soon his live-stream cuts, implying he purposely didn't stream certain points.
This is the closest we see Christopher Brow get to breaching inside of the Capitol. It's unclear if he intended on streaming this part. These are the doors and windows that are breached by Capitol rioters and DC insurrectionists. The stream freezes and abruptly cuts yet again.
Christopher Brow at 1:23: "We all know what's going on here, right? I'm heading towards the White House. It is a civil war."

He prepares to leave & complains about a news report that the Capitol is on lockdown as an insurrectionist yells at police that they'll be back in force.
Christopher Brow exits & speaks to the camera & celebrates the National Guard request being rejected. Additional quotes:
"They can't lock us all up."
"Who knew, that when we went to a Trump rally- I guess we kinda knew."
"It was one of the most amazing things to be a part of."
Extra clip: here is Christopher Brow meeting with Portland based Proud Boy Eddie Block. Brow is near a meeting of other Proud Boys BEFORE the Capitol riot/DC insurrection began, suggesting he has direct ties to the Proud Boys that specifically started the attack on the Capitol.
Here's all of Christopher Brow's #January6th Capitol riot/DC insurrection footage:…

This footage could be vital for identifying many more violent insurrectionists, so now it is available to all.
*CORRECTION: While Eddie Block has been active in Portland Proud Boys violence, he’s based in Fresno, not Portland.

Right wing extremist Mike Ancheta (under investigation for assaulting me) intimidated voters, harassed poll workers, refused to wear a mask, barged in the voting area, electioneers, & films someone voting.

The entire voting floor had to be vacated just so he could vote alone. 1/
Volunteers tell Mike Ancheta that he can vote without a mask outside. He refuses. So they accommodate him & tell him that they're clearing out the voting center just for him. He isn't concerned with how safe others feel, so other voters are inconvenienced. He keeps harassing. 2/
Mike Ancheta decides not to wait for other voters to safely vacate. He barges in without permission but is stopped by a poll worker. He harasses and interrogates her and tries to get her full name (Ancheta has a history of stalking and doxxing). 3/

Exactly a year ago today, a secretive joint operation between @LAPDHQ and @LASDHQ took place at 3 AM.

It was the raid of the Black Unity 24/7 autonomous protest camp in Grand park— one of the longest lasting autonomous protest zones in the nation. No media was allowed on scene.
Residents were only given a few minutes to gather everything they owned before the destruction began. Residents who were absent lost everything— even a passport was destroyed.

Here’s some background context on this Black Lives Matter protest camp:…
The @BlackUnityLA autonomous protest damp was right across the street from city hall. It made for a central hub for activists to organize, exchange ideas, grow, and heal.

Also, most folks never knew this… but the camp barricades were built in the shape of a heart. 💚

Brown journalist here: I can’t safely report on @POTUS.

Biden’s here to endorse Newsom— but if I show, I’ll be severely injured for reporting by the far right. Again.

It would be my 1st time reporting on a President. But pro-Recall right wingers greenlit me for attack on sight.
Many of my colleagues are on scene & I implore you to watch their coverage. But we need to talk about the state journalism is now in.

I’m unable to report on my own President due to credible threats to me by white supremacists & far right extremists who ARE allowed to be there.
It’s easy to think that I could just go anyways. Threats, intimidation, doxxing be damned. But last time I did that I was ambushed & hospitalized by Proud Boy affiliates. Just for holding a camera. This danger is very real— and it’s not proportional.

Fuck it. Thread on LA based far right extremists who were in Portland today. Let’s start with DC insurrectionist, FBI informant, & Proud Boys fangirl Kennedy Lindsey. She was arrested at the Capitol on Jan 5 and had her weapons confiscated. Then she breached the Capitol on the 6.
Here's the "Based Spartan" a white supremacist and homophobe named John Turano. He's a regular at political. street brawls in Los Angeles, and was also profiled by VICE's "The Rise and Fall of an Alt-Right Gladiator."
Don't forget @TomasMorales_iv (who has had me blocked since before I even knew him lol) a white nationalist, friend to LAPD, & wannabe propaganda minister for LA chuds.

(Oh, & editor to editor: your cutting isn't very good, Tomas.)
