Someone needs to be punished for the death of this police officer:

Texas Freeze Blackout Proves Fossil Fuels are Outdated

Proud Boys Leader Was ‘Prolific’ Informer for Law Enforcement

He’s a snitch. Might not go over well in prison–where he’s going:

Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys extremist group, has a past as an informer for federal and local law enforcement, repeatedly working undercover for investigators after he was arrested in 2012, according to a former prosecutor and a transcript of a 2014 federal court proceeding obtained by Reuters.

In the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

D.C. Police Chief: Pro-Trump Mob Tried to Steal Officer’s Gun, Use it Against Him | National News | US News

These insurrectionists are typical right-wing extremists. They hate cops. Which is ironic because MAGA types always praising law enforcement.

D.C. POLICE OFFICER assaulted by supporters of President Donald Trump as they stormed the U.S. Capitol last week barely prevented the attackers from taking his gun and using it against him, the Metropolitan Police Department chief said Monday, adding that they did succeed in stealing other parts of his department-issued gear.

Members of Several Well-Known Hate Groups Identified at Capitol Riot

The worst of the worst were part of those groups who entered the Capitol building:

The precise composition of the mob that forced its way into the Capitol on Wednesday, disrupting sessions of both houses of Congress and leaving a police officer and four others dead, remains unknown. But a review by a ProPublica-FRONTLINE team that has been tracking far-right movements for the past three years shows that the crowd included members of the Proud Boys and other groups with violent ideologies. Videos reveal the presence of several noted hardcore nativists and white nationalists who participated in the 2017 white power rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that President Donald Trump infamously refused to condemn.

No Proof for Right-Wing Claim Antifa were at Capitol Insurrection. Those Arrested are Neo-Fascists, MAGA.

Don’t look like Antifa to me:

Research: Zero Antifa Killings, 329 Right-Wings Murders in last 25 Years

Truth is inconvenient. It’s the right that is the greatest threat to America. Because when you have nothing to offer or say all that they can do is kill innocent people. And that’s been going on for hundreds of years in America. Just remember that the next time to you hear FOX talk about violence from protestors:

The research comes from a database of almost 900 politically motivated attacks and plots in the United States since 1994. The database was compiled by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and reviewed by The Guardian. It found that in the past 25 years, right-wing extremists have killed 329 people.

Per CSIS’s findings, there is only one death, in 1994, linked to anti-fascists — and in that case, the person killed was the perpetrator. Even when looking at “left-wing violence” broadly, only 21 people have died since 2010. Now compare that to the 117 people killed because of right-wing violence during the same time period.
