House and Senate staff are being evacuated while U.S. Capitol Police repel an apparent attack on the certification of Joe Biden’s victory.
Pentagon denied deploying the nat’l guard.
Last summer when BLM had a protest at congress:
If the MAGA lot had the necessary zeal they could murder everyone in the building and the state apparatus will just sit back and watch
How likely is this to undermine Empire?
It’s hard to say. Biden is a puppet based on his deteriorating condition. He’s also a stubborn guy. The USA is definitely weak right now.
Not very, super early stages, but its nice to see the US political system eat itself and seem incredibly unstable.
In the next iteration of this in a decade or so, unlike trump, president tucker carlson will ask his followers to do lone wolf attacks against democrat congress members.
It already is. The actual full effect remains to be seen though.

Been following this on PBS News hour. It’s absolutely insane.
Been trying to follow on twitter a little, crazy shit. Very light tear gas at the most, and they’re breaking into the capitol building.
The police are enabling this, likely because they share sympathies with the crowd. They know if they crack down on them they’ll be making themselves an enemy of both sides. In essence they’re picking their side here.

I just slapped em on because they were the first people I heard were covering events live from inside the Capitol building.
