Is it really such a stretch of the imagination that a group of avowed anarchists that has denounced presidents of any party might seek an opportunity to leverage unrest into violence?
You haven’t forgotten how anarchist symbols were spraypainted on a trashed Biden/Harris campaign office on the Leftist Coast shortly after election day, have you? Or that Antifa spraypainted their usual sloganeering on a Portland Democrat campaign office in 2019?
Nah. The leftists in the media have a particular blind spot to any political violence that advances any cause they are friendly toward — or shares a common enemy, and it’s beyond obvious that a lot of these groups were unofficially embraced as the defacto militant arm of the political left.
These anarchist groups don’t just welcome violence, they crave it. Is it really so difficult to imagine they would be willing to foment violence in the capital on a day they knew the MAGA peeps would be attending en masse?
If they can pin the blame on Trump supporters, stir up some chaos, or incite a peaceful protest into a full-on riot, wouldn’t that count as a ‘win’ in their books?
So with that question in mind, one facial-recognition company has made an interesting claim about the people who broke into the Capitol Building on the 6th.
A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia antifa members to two men inside the Senate.
The source provided the photo match to The Times.
One has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer. antifa promotes anarchy through violence and wants the end of America in favor of a Stalinist-state. “No more USA at all” is a protest chant.
XRVision also has identified another man who, while not known to have antics links, is someone who shows up at climate and Black Lives Matter protests in the West. — WashingtonTimes
That is a data point, but hardly proof.
This is a second data point:
Before the Nov. 4 election, an antifa chapter sent out on social media a reminder for members to disguise themselves as Trump supporters by wearing the distinctive red Make American Great Again (MAGA) hat.
“On Nov. 4 don’t forget to disguise yourselves as patriots/Trump supporters. Wear MAGA hats. USA flags. A convincing police uniform is even better. This way police and patriots responding to US won’t know who their enemies are and onlookers and the media will think there are Trump supporters rioting so it’s harder to turn popular opinion against us.” — WashingtonTimes
Is it conclusive?
No. But it will help us make sure we’re asking the right questions about what really happened at the Capitol.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
