Within one hour of President Donald Trump taking the helm of the United States, protesters and police on the streets of Washington D.C. met head on.
NBC News is reporting that flash bang grenades, tear gas and pepper spray are being used, though it’s not clear who is doing what just yet. Protesters are reportedly blocking entrances, setting fires and vandalizing building structures throughout the area.
Earlier this week we reported that radical leftist groups planned on using chemical weapons to disturb the inauguration. As well, paid provocateurs are likely among average protesters, as evidenced by an earlier report indicating that leftist groups had posted advertisements seeking individuals to prevent a peaceful transition of power.
Watch video from the streets of DC, where at least 95 people have already been arrested and several police officers have been injured:
We expect the situation to devolve into further chaos as the day progresses.
So glad that Hillary and Sanders protesters accepted the election results rather than losing their shit.
Always look for a silver lining… mmmmm…
Hey, at least Obama didn’t declare martial law and suspend the election of 2016!!
That would have been worse than seeing these Dem Libs protesting!
Only about 100 or 200 of them–just the media playing it up. Someone lit a metal trash can on fire and a twig and the media started reporting, “now fires are burning as we can see smoke billowing”..I make a bigger fire when I burn my yard debris.
217 arrests reported, and the fires include one stretch limo.
Not surprising, most of the leftist “melinnials” are too lazy to get out of bed. Probably posted demands on FB for the event to be rescheduled a few hours later.
Sorry, I’m not insulting all young people. Some of you make me think USA may still have a chance. Sadly, the “greatest generation” and “baby boomers” have left you with such an uphill battle.
Durn trumps making unemployment drop by forcing soros , etc… Employ paid protesters with benefits included- go trump!
The ACLU demanded that the police bodycams be turned off so people could protest peacefully????? For years they demanded police have bodycams and now they want them off? Damned if the police gave in and turned them off. How are they going to protect themselves from these idiots with them turned off? BS! Turn them on and bust heads. They came to riot and destroy. take them out and bust heads doing it with cams on!
Jim, I say F#$% the ACLU and any other so-called ‘civil rights’ group. The libturd protestors need to be shot, They’re the ones with bad intentions toward other people, not someone else. Let the police do their job and stop this ‘civil rights’ crap.
Change their cloth diapers, give them a pacifier and their blankey… tell their their parents they left the basement and to lock the doors…
Navyguy, LOL! Good one!
Man, these violent, racist, Trump thugs are pretty disgusting, aren’t they?
Smokey, you mean LIBTURD protestors, don’t you? They need to be shot.
You bet I meant the Libbies. I’ve seen some footage of at least 4 people being assaulted by these little fascists.
Lucky for them the Inauguration is in Washington DC, and not San Antonio. The place would sound like Chicago on Saturday night when the guns come out.
These protesters are a mixture of street criminal type trash, bums, Marxist paid agitators, loser kids supported by loser parents who never worked, paid by Soros morons who are drug addicts, the vandals need to be shot for trashing stuff. The nat. guard did nothing. This may continue several days and police will do nothing.
Shoot one. They will stop!
Better yet, shoot them all under the NDAA
Hope every one of them that gets arrested is prosecuted to the maximum extent the law allows and sentenced equally harshly.
But in reality, leftist protestors and disruptors, no matter how destructive and violent, are almost always let go with little more than a slap on the wrist if that much.
Anonymous, libturds would never get any leeway from me. They’ll face consequences for trying to tangle with me.
You may be right. 217 of the 230 people arrested have been charged with Felony Rioting, a federal offense, with up to 10 years in jail and/or a $250,000 fine. Sounds pretty serious, right? They were released on No Bail, court dates in February.
We’ll see if the Court gets tough, then, I guess.
The scumbags in the video that were threatening acid bombs and such, they were all rounded up the night before the Inauguration. They face a very serious set of conspiracy charges.
Yeah but just think of the sacrifices they’re making. Why, about 15 of them had to miss work…
At the sandwich shop and the skateboard parlor….
“Gavin McInnes” their azzzzes! Gavin was 1st guy to strike back! He is from “Rebel Media” outside Deploraball. Punched the phone out of the guys hand, bit off his glasses and spit them to the ground, licked his face then punched him directly down his throat.
Infowars has the video.
Gavin was faced with SJW’s when trying to get into the Ball.
FYI Gavin said Cops were told to stand down.
I still say shoot the protestors.
by Looking at the videos the LEO’s have it under control.
What is really DUMB is the media standing in the same area as the protesters that are throwing rock and things, and wondering why they cops are pushing them back. Stupid stand in front of a tank in a battle you will get run over!!!!
Sarge, the MSM ‘reporters’ are ALL libturds. That says it all.
They want all their footage to be from the viewpoint of the protestors. And if one of them gets shoved on camera, so much the better. They have an agenda.
Smoked, the MSM always had the same agenda. They’re never going to put any of us in a positive light.
FOX News isn’t giving the violence anywhere near the other major media networks. If you watch the other media networks, the violence appears more widespread than it actually is.
The MSM mantra is that Trump is divisive and violence will follow his wake. They’ll put ten cameras on the same street corner if they get to maximize the events.
You bunch of dumbasses. Our country is based upon consent of he governed. It is obvious many are not consenting o be governed by a psychopath. Bu, what if Hillary had been elected and Trumpees were protesting. Would you still feel he same way or would you be cheering them on. You people are so ignorant, it is amazing you remember to breathe, but I guess your mama whose basemen you live helps out with that.
Gee, thanks for clearing all that up with us, we were under the delusion that an election was held and that we lived in a civil society.
Glad you’re around to set all us ignorant rednecks aright. What would we ever do without your foul-mouthed insults and sophomoric wisdom to guide us?
Smoked, if I ever meet that troll, it’ll be my pleasure to take him out.
Can’t stand bs, you just STFU. If Hillary had won, there would be a shooting war right now. The people spoke on Nov. 8 and chose Trump. His victory was certified by the Electoral College and the Congress so get over it. You sound just like those libturd losers out there so just go away, useless troll.
cant stand bs…
What’s the matter little boy…your mommy wouldn’t let you attend the riots…made you stay in your room? Now you’re on your computer trying to bug the adults?
Face it youngster. We won, you lost.
He just upgraded his computer with the Rambo 6000 keyboard, so he’s trying out the tough talk feature.
Some go Low and others go High?
The days of rioting and acting a fool are coming to an end. The hundreds of thousands never arrived. The police acted swiftly to stop the hundred or so criminals from doing more vandalizing of property. There were some arrests. The police used tear gas and pepper spray as they moved the small obnoxious crowd back. The real show occurred without incident. Thousands enjoyed the ceremonies, in a peaceful, even serene, and polite gathering.
“Useful idiots of the world, UNITE!”
FEMA camps for all of them.
Guess there are no “campus safe spaces” and microagressions here!
And if these leftist idiots had had their way?
“I know the campesinos (peasants, which today would be these student protesters) support us now. But when we come to power, they, too, will have to be liquidated.”

This has gone on since the leftists or Robespierre’s day. To wit, as Jacques Mallet du Pan (1749—10 May 1800), wrote about the first leftist reign of terror, in his 1793 essay that ”…the Revolution always eats its own children” (“A l’exemple de Saturne, la révolution dévore ses enfants
TEST, bullets for all of them.
Yawn. Little coverage of minor protests. No disruption of major events. They may even have had more people in some of the other cities.
I felt that law enforcement was far too gentle to these communists and traitors. I was hoping a few of the more destructive and disruptive ones would have been shot or at leased tased into submission.
This is just the beginning.
Get ready for 4 years of socio-anarchist
protests and domestic terrorism.
H8TE and violence… the leftist way throughout history. Except on their campus safe spaces, of course…
I’m glad it didn’t get any worse than it was. They had wished to cause traffic disruptions that would be extensive. Knowing how bad the traffic snarls become from one person threatening to leap from a bridge, having their intention come true would end up with a three day traffic jam. Not a way to make friends or gain sympathy in this area.
Why don’t they use water hoses on them. They’d get cold and go home.
