It must be because he is afraid of retribution by Antifa who have threatened his family. Right? Isn’t that the excuse the right wingers used last time?

It's always hilarious when Trump fans think they know more about the riots than the FBI. What ever happened to backing the blue? Lolz

Yes all extreme far right wing nazis who were planning to take over the US and commit genocide on minorities. That’s why it was so well organised and successful. And resulted in so many deaths and injuries. If not for the brave Capitol police the country would be crushed under the Trumpian jackboot as we write. Well done police and FBI and our brave senators and representatives.

Trump supporters are reprehensible, but no-one said they were competent.

He isn't an antifa protestor. You have been lied to. Again.

35 Capitol police officers under investigation with five suspended.

He is a reporter. Not a member of Antifa.

Most Trump supporters won't believe anything that comes from the US government. Many believe the tuckercarlsons reported by Fox/RT/Breitbart and those posted on 8chan. And many trust the Kremlin's reporting. Then they somehow call themselves 'patriots'.

Reality:

"We have not to date seen any evidence of any anarchist violent extremists or people subscribing to antifa in connection with the 6th"

Trump fans' alternate reality created by lies from their President, politicians, and media:

"Asked to describe what happened during the assault on the Capitol, 58% of Trump voters call it "mostly an antifa-inspired attack that only involved a few Trump supporters."

Isn't it interesting, that when this mob was listening to their revered cult leader just prior to the assault on the Capitol, they were "heroes" and "patriots"...

But when they moved en-masse down the street at his urging and direction, still waving their Trump banners and Confederate flags, they suddenly turn into leftists and "Antifa"...

The Trump cultists are beyond deluded - they live in a world as far from reality as Jim Jones and his Jonestown cult...

And we know what he did to his followers...

Wray took the GOP Q apart.

There is no evidence that anyone other than Trump supporters were responsible.

There is zero evidence of Antifa involvement: zero, zip, nada, none.

On the other hand, there actually ARE documented cases of Oath Keepers, Bogaloo boys, Proud boys, etc. posing as it infiltrating BLM protests to ambush police, commit property crimes and incite violence.

Welcome to the wacky world of Republican conspiracy theories.

He is a reporter. Not a member of Antifa.

He claims he's a reporter for his organization but the courts are not buying it. He heads an anti-police violence group in Utah but says he isn't antifa. He sold copies of the videos he made storming the capital for $35K to two news organizations who later stopped using his footage. Not sure what to make of the guy but his videos capture plenty of other protesters shouting F antifa, F BLM and similar so the claim atifa and BLM led the charge doesn't seem very credible.

Anyone can look at the footage shot by a reporter from the New Yorker and be their own judge about the leanings of the people who stormed the Capital. It might be the best reportage from the insurrection. The reporter is looking over the shoulders of protesters as the page through the computers of members of the Senate proclaiming this or that Senator sold them out, etc, and listen to their other conversations on the floor of the Senate, and earlier as they charged up the steps inside the capital chanting "traitor".

Most Trump supporters won't believe anything that comes from the US government.

When conservatives ran the government and were in power, liberals didn't believe anything that came from them, so why should we believe liberals?

Many believe the tuckercarlsons reported by Fox/RT/Breitbart and those posted on 8chan.

8 million and growing, astonishing, and liberals and Dems can't get him off the air. lol

Then they somehow call themselves 'patriots'.

For not trusting the people that tried to oust the previous President.

Most of the Democrats are lawyers, two years investigations after investigations....But yeah, Cruz is a dangerous man. ROFL!

Ahhh, the race card, and if questioning election integrity makes you a traitor, hope the Dems remember when they did in 2000 and 2005

You keep mis-labeling a reporter as an antifa protestor. Does it make you feel better?

This is completely irrelevant to the fact that republicans are defending the traitors that stormed the Capitol on January 6.

Ahhhh, you’re conflating bigotry and racism. Let’s try to keep a modicum of accuracy in our posts today.

I get the feeling that our resident JT Trump supporters can't being themselves to face the disgrace of their side storming the Capitol and threatening our government.

Have any of you seen any comments where they even address the issue in any way? It's always, "Remember last summer!" or some other distraction.

That's sad that they have to internalize all that crap.
