Washington, DC, is currently on lockdown, pro-Trump protesters are breaching the Capitol Building, and #CivilWar is trending on Twitter.
Thousands of people gathered in Washington, DC, on Wednesday morning to protest Congress’ counting of the electoral votes to confirm President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory.
The protest quickly turned into one requiring a citywide curfew, as President Trump supporters began storming the Capitol, putting the vote on pause.

They’ve been saying they would do this for years. YEARS. Threatening a second civil war and violence. And no one listened. Because it was just online.

“Mom, tell me about Civil War 2.”
Well, honey, we held a rich white man accountable for his actions and he was too emotional to handle it so he told his friends to murder us.

The Confederate Flag has breached the Capital, something it failed to do even in the Civil War. This isn’t a protest, this is a coup, an attack on the state, and an attack on the very heart of democracy. I have never seen anything so un-American.

Even in the Civil War the Capitol building wasn’t breached.
