The Battle Rages On! Protests Continue Across Country After US Capitol Incident


If you thought that what we saw Wednesday was the end of the protests, you'd better think again.

As we saw on Wednesday while both houses of Congress conducting their Constitutional duty to certify the electoral votes (regardless of whether or not we believe the election was rigged...which it was), patriots along with what appears to be some members of Antifa which infiltrated the protesters and instigated violence.

But that wasn't where it ended.

On the very same day, pro-Trump supporters gathered across the country.

The chaos in the nation’s capital came as hundreds of people gathered in state capitals from Georgia to New Mexico, with many carrying flags and waving signs that read "Stop the steal" and "Four more years." Some carried guns in places like Oklahoma, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and Washington state.

While most demonstrations were peaceful, with some remaining small in size, there were reports of scuffles breaking out in states like Utah, Oregon and California.

In Washington state, Trump-supporting patriots gathered at the Washington State Capitol building in Olympia and made it to the Governor's Mansion as well.

In Utah, there were several hundred protesters who gathered at the Capitol building in Salt Lake City as well. It was reported that Utah was peaceful despite a photographer being pepper-sprayed.

In California, there was a rally at the City Hall in downtown Los Angeles which started out peaceful, but ultimately turned more violent after police said that this was an unlawful assembly resulting in fistfights between protesters and counterprotesters.

In Georgia, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his staff were evacuated from the Capitol building because some of the protesters came armed with guns.

Besides these, there were other protests at Capitol buildings in Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Oregon. Some turned out violent and some did not.
