My links go to DOJ charging docs along with photos & vids of the crime in progress.

There goes the narrative!

Watch for CNN to cover this one... 

FBI Arrests Antifa Leader John Sullivan in Utah After Storming US Capitol


"Antifa-Insurgence leader John Earl Sullivan is in custody after being arrested in Utah on Thursday.

As reported previously Antifa protester John Sullivan was caught on video posing as a Trump supporter during the rioting at the US Capitol last week."



John Sullivan agitated a crowd to attack the doors in the Speaker's Lobby which lead to Ashli Babbitt's death

He was invited on CNN later that night

Definitely.  Though none of this excuses the political violence that accompanied some of the BLM demonstrations.  Nor does it restore the image of the BLM movement with folks alienated by the violence.

It is good to have what...  recent bi-partisan events that amply illustrate how violence can lead to loss of control over the narrative and ultimately less political support for the agenda.

President Donald Trump in July 2020 had signed an executive order authorising up to 10 years of imprisonment for 'injury of federal property’





Condemning the violent rioters who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen in a statement assured that those responsible for the attack would "face the full consequences of their actions under the law."


The protesters are liable to be punished with up to 10 years in prison for “injury of federal property," under the executive order signed by President Donald Trump during the Black Lives Matter anti-racism protests in July 2020.


"I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues - and combatting recent Criminal Violence," Mr Trump wrote on Twitter on 26 June, after people took to the streets in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. "Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!"

White Riot
How racism, grievance, resentment and the fear of diminished status came together to fuel violence and mayhem on Jan. 6.
There is no question that out-and-out racism and a longing to return to the days of white supremacy were high on the list of motivations of the pro-Trump mob that ransacked the Capitol on Jan. 6.

That should not end the discussion about why it happened, though. There are other questions we need to ask that do not (and could never) justify the violence and mayhem but seek instead to help us gain further insight into the lethal force that attacked Congress a week ago and is poised to strike again.

It may sound trivial at first, in light of what happened, but how important is the frustration among what pollsters call non-college white men at not being able to compete with those higher up on the socioeconomic ladder because of educational disadvantage? How critical is declining value in marriage — or mating — markets? Does any of that really matter?

How toxic is the combination of pessimism and anger that stems from a deterioration in standing and authority? What might engender existential despair, this sense of irretrievable loss? How hard is it for any group, whether it is racial, political or ethnic, to come to terms with losing power and status? What encourages desperate behavior and a willingness to believe a pack of lies?

I posed these questions to a wide range of experts. This column explores their replies. (...)

"...But perhaps it’s this very unseriousness, this retreat from the disappointments and defeats of real life, that provides the appeal of political fantasy. A similar process takes place in the extreme right’s use of “ironic” memes and jokes that revel in their own absurdity: irony suspends the rules that usually govern people’s lives, allowing them to say and do things without “really saying them”, to engage in a kind of camp play-acting, until, of course, they feel comfortable really believing it, and drop the pretence.."

This literal American Hero leads the seditionists up the stairs, away from the American Congress (when he says "second floor" into his mic and then stands in a doorway, that's where they are - and he walks away from it), and into a chamber where they come up against his reinforcements. 

Tactically brilliant stuff, under intense pressure. He deserves acknowledgement - but, as you know, the White House wouldn't even honor the murdered officer until it was pressured to do so.
