Reports Claim Fake Protesters Wreak Havoc at Capitol

(TargetLiberty.org) – The nation was horrified Wednesday by the scenes of violence in and around the Capitol – but there’s deepening confusion around who was really responsible for the violence. Now rumors say the instigators were far-left activists out to discredit President Trump and his supporters.

On January 6, The Gateway Pundit reported that one rioter, who’s been splashed all over images of the Capitol riots, was also at a Black Lives Matter rally last June. Two others, pictured inside the Capitol building, may be associated with Antifa in Philadelphia. Another has what appears to be a Communist hammer and sickle emblem tattooed on his hand. Some commentators suggest this is evidence that left-wing activists were involved in the violence.

President Trump’s supporters have gathered in Washington, DC many times since his campaign began in 2016, including three times since November’s election. They’ve never resorted to violence. We don’t yet know a lot about the extremists that entered the Capitol, but we do know that they weren’t patriots.
