White Supremacists Storm the U.S. Capitol

  


January 6, 2021:

Egged on by Donald Trump, white supremacists penetrate the Capitol Building shouting "Hang Mike Pence," and "Where's Nancy?", destroying property and stealing from offices of members of Congress.

Rioters included retired and current members of law enforcement.


It is no surprise to African Americans that white supremacists have infiltrated law enforcement. Ask anyone who has followed the Black Lives Matter movement and is familiar with the countless murders of unarmed black men by police. But now that "Trumpets" have attacked the Capitol, and it has been discovered that many of the white men in the mob were either retired or current members of law enforcement, white people are shocked. It has been reported that white supremacist congressmen Andy Biggs, Mo Brooks, and Paul Gosar assisted some of the rioters in planning their attack. It has also been reported that white supremacist members of Congress took rioters on tours of the Capitol the day before the attack. The Capitol has been closed for tours since the onset of COVID-19.


Kamala Harris
Right now I am as worried for the safety of Vice President Elect Kamala Harris as I was for the Obama family for eight years. Now that the illusion of safety and security has been shattered, it is abundantly clear that it is necessary for law enforcement personnel to be thoroughly examined and all white supremacists removed. Is Biden's nominee for Attorney General Merrick Garland capable of doing this? Unfortunately he has a reputation for not holding policemen accountable for unjustifiable shootings and murders. At lease I can rest assured that Kamala will be watching him closely.
