The leader of the far-right Proud Boys was arrested and shops near the Capitol were boarded up as Washington braced for a day of “stop the steal” protests by President Trump’s diehard defenders.
Mr Trump has urged his supporters to come to Washington today to protest against the joint session of Congress that will confirm Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election last November.
The president is expected to address his supporters from a makeshift stage in a park just outside the White House this morning.
Amid fears of widespread disorder, Muriel Bowser, the mayor of Washington, called in the national guard to support local officials as they try to minimise violence.
DC Braces for Conflict as Trump Supporters Descend on the Capitol
By Anisa Holmes and NBC Washington Staff • January 5, 2021
Supporters of President Donald Trump are set to begin demonstrations in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, the day before Congress meets to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the Electoral College.
Multiple groups have received permits to host events with hundreds or thousands of people around the National Mall and near the White House. Demonstrations were set to begin with a march to the Capitol on Tuesday and culminate in rallies on Wednesday.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has encouraged people to avoid downtown on Tuesday and Wednesday as law enforcement braces for the possibility of violent confrontations between pro-Trump demonstrators and counterprotesters.
“Make no mistake: many of these individuals have stated that they are coming to the District to provoke residents and wreak havoc," D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine said.
The Metropolitan Police Department is expecting a crowd larger than at two pro-Trump events in D.C. last year. The D.C. National Guard will assist with crowd management and traffic control, officials said Monday.
“Some of our intelligence certainly suggests there will be increased crowd sizes,” said Acting Police Chief Robert Contee, adding, "There are people intent on coming to our city armed.”
Photos Tuesday morning show police cars blocking areas around the Asbury United Methodist Church, one of several churches vandalized during previous pro-Trump demonstrations, and several downtown businesses boarded up in anticipation of potential destruction of property.
Road closures and parking restrictions were also put into effect early Tuesday.
Hundreds gathered at Freedom Plaza, just a block from the White House, at around 1 p.m. Tuesday to kick off the first event of the day.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehaviour acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
