Yep. Nancy Pelosi shot the last arrow in her quiver, and today she had to be whisked out of the Capitol as crowds of protesters swarmed into the building overwhelming the Capitol police.

The government does not serve the public good, and they only way they are going to hear that is to come face-to-face with an angry mob. Trump supporters are generally non-violent until Antifa types start fights with them. I don't expect them to burn down the Capitol building. However, I think it is important that they understand that nobody is buying their bullshit anymore.

A beating, huh? You think that's going to cool things down? Look how many people there are. There simply isn't enough jail space for that to work. Sure, you might find someone among the crowd with money and squeeze a nice fine out of them, but it's not going to change sentiment one iota I think.

Well, BLM and Antifa have been rioting all year and the Democrats urged it on. Now they are saying, "this is unacceptable" all huffy-like. Really? What if Trump supporters were like Antifa and started shooting mortars into the Capitol? For the most part, this is what peaceful protest looks like. Suddenly, the political left is opposed to peaceful protests.
