For most of us who went to Charlottesville, the lesson that we took away from the Unite the Right rally was not to “trust Trump” or to ever walk into another similar trap again.
The people who have been ensnared in the Capitol Siege – run of the mill MAGApedes, Qtards, Patriots, Oathcucks, Proud Boys, America Firsters – were all civnats and Trump super fans. The best example of a “white supremacist” who was at both events that they can come up with is Baked Alaska.
In Charlottesville, we had gone to federal court and won and had the legal right to hold our rally in Lee Park. The rally was disrupted by Antifa when the Charlottesville police stood down. We were supposed to be there that day, complied with the police and left the area when asked to do so. We didn’t attack the police and had no agenda beyond attending our own event which had been announced months in advance. The people who stormed the Capitol on January 6th never had any right to be there.
