People breaking through barricades
Members of Congress evacuated
Six policemen injured
DNC headquarters attacked
January 6? Nope
Anti-Israel protesters stormed DC last night
Protestors clashed with police outside of the Democratic National headquarters as pro-Palestine groups flooded the front facility and violence erupted.
Officers have already made at least one arrest for assault on an officer after 150 activists surged towards the Washington, DC, building on Wednesday night.
The incident left six police officers injured from cuts, pepper spray and being punched.
Protesters assembled to call for a ceasefire in the Israel-Gaza conflict, but the gathering quickly turned into chaos. Shocking footage from the scene shows police attempting to drag protesters away from the entrance to the DNC building as they chant ‘let Gaza live.’
One woman can be seen repeatedly screaming: ‘F*** you b****’ at an officer who is trying to order her back as protesters surge towards the building.
The Capitol Police urged the public to avoid the area amid the ‘violent and illegal’ protests.
“Violent and illegal protests”
‘Tonight 6 officers were treated for injuries – ranging from minor cuts to being pepper sprayed to being punched. One person has been arrested for assault on an officer,’ the Capitol police stated.
Pepper sprayed, you say.
Congressmen were evacuated
By 8.40pm several roads had been closed as cops worked to subdue the crowds occupying the area outside the headquarters on South Capitol Street.
Rep. Brad Sherman, a California Democrat, said he was among those to be evacuated after protesters ‘grew violent, pepper spraying police officers and attempting to break into the building’.
‘Thankful to the police officers who stopped them and for helping me and my colleagues get out safely,’ he added in a statement on X, formerly Twitter.
This all sounds a lot like Jan 6.
I am on Capitol Hill right now and it’s on lockdown. No getting in or out of our offices. We have officers that were pepper sprayed by pro-Hamas protestors with a lot of people attempting to break into the Democratic HQ. Anyone else notice how violent the so-called “ceasefire”… pic.twitter.com/UbtMmLe7Ei

And it’s not the first time. Last month:
Protesters moved to the inside of the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday demanding a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas conflict.
Footage of the protest inside the Cannon building has circulated online, with participants heard chanting “ceasefire now.”
Now about that pepper spraying, which did not escape the eye of Julie Kelly
Julian Khater was arrested by the feds on an airplane in March 2021 then interrogated by the FBI w/o a lawyer for allegedly spraying Brian Sicknick with pepper spray on January 6. He was denied release by Judge Tom Hogan (Reagan) and languished in DC Gulag for a year and a half before tormented into a plea deal. Julian pleaded guilty to 2 counts of assaulting federal police w/dangerous weapon. Hogan then sentenced him to 80 months in prison. That’s why we call them political prisoners. Zero chance anything close to that happens to these thugs.
FBI last week conducted a full-out armed raid with SWAT vehicles against a J6er accused of assaulting police almost 3 years ago.
Many J6ers have been sentenced to years in prison–more than 10 years in one case–for attacking Capitol police. I await the same results here. https://t.co/wxjjC14luz

This is the DC second insurrection in two months. I cannot wait to see how Merrick Garland and the FBI deal with this. If those who pepper-sprayed the DC cops do not see the same treatments given to the Jan6 protesters than you will know for a fact that there is a two tiered justice system in this country and that Joe Biden is behind it. It will prove Merrick Garland to be a damn dirtbag.
