Woman Shot in Congress as Protester Sits in Senate Chair


A woman was shot by police inside the Senate chambers after protesters breached the Capitol building during the Electoral College proceedings. The exact condition of the woman is unknown, although she is reported to be in serious condition. Reports conflict about the 3 pm shooting, with some saying she was shot in the chest or shoulder, while others saying she was shot in the neck.

Protesters broke through police barriers and entered the building where the Congressional election certification was being held.

Members of Congress, and Vice president Pence, were scurried out of the room to a secure location. Gas masks were also provided to members of Congress after tear gas was deployed in the room.

Chaos reigned following the breech. A protester was photographed sitting in the Senate chambers chair.

Media outlets referred to the protesters as a “mob.” Not peaceful protesters, like the rioters and looters in Portland.

Washington, DC mayor Muriel Bowser ordered a 6 PM curfew in the capital city. She also called for the Metro, the city’s subway system, to be shut down early. The 1,100 strong DC National Guard was also deployed. Maryland and Virginia governors promised to assist with state troopers and the National Guard.

A protester was heard to yell, “A new 1776 has just begun.”

How interesting that after only 20 minutes into the curfew the riot police and national guard are pushing back the crowd. Sure didn’t see that before when BLM / Antifa were rioting and burninng and a curfew was in effect. Now they are actually pounding on people as they are leaving.

Barry is so happy, he is clapping his hands with joy and laughing with a huge grin on his face!
We had no idea that it would be this easy to destroy a republic once and for all.
The sound of cheering and laughter is ongoing in Beijing, Tehran, Pyongyang, Moscow.
Good job CPUSA comrades, now round up those deplorable kulak untermenschen scum.
