Was Antifa at the Capitol Protest? Here Are The Facts and the Guy Who Threatened to 'Rip Trump' Out of the White House

Many people were spreading pictures yesterday of people who they thought were ‘Antifa’ at the Capitol protest/riot.

 

So I wanted to walk through some of the stories and highlight what’s true and what isn’t, at least in terms of the evidence we know at this point.

 

First of all,’horn guy,’ the guy who infamously made it to the speaker’s chair and was featured in many pictures with horns on his head and paint on his face. He’s an actor, as my colleague Jennifer Oliver O’Connell reported earlier. He’s been at events identifying as a Trump supporter as well as holding a Q sign and has been identified by local Arizona media as a Q supporter. There is a picture of him at a BLM protest, but he was allegedly there as a counter-protester holding a Q sign. The sign was cropped out as the picture was passed around social media.

 

Then there was a guy who was said to have a “hammer and sickle” on his hand. He and another man were identified as Philly Antifa. But the tattoo on his hand is not a hammer and sickle, it’s a tattoo related to the video game “Dishonored.” He and the other man were on the Philly Antifa page because they were being identified by Antifa as an alleged Neo-Nazis/supremacists.

 

So now onto someone who has in fact been involved in and organized BLM protests that resulted in violence, John Sullivan, who uses BLM and Antifa hashtags. Sullivan was at the doors inside the Capitol near Ashli Babbitt when she was shot. You can see him here:

Heidi Hatch also notes that Sullivan was been involved in violent BLM protests in Utah and faced charges.

 

Sullivan was arrested in July and charged with investigation of rioting, making a threat of violence and criminal mischief. He helped organize a protest that ended up in a motorist getting shot by another BLM person in Provo.

The police affidavit in the incident describes Sullivan this way.

From Deseret:

“As a protest organizer John Sullivan is heard and seen as he is promoting protesters to block roadways, keeping motorists from traveling lawfully and freely.”

Sullivan was also captured on video threatening to beat a woman in an SUV, according to the affidavit, and then kicking her door, leaving a dent.

Sullivan was seen with Jesse Taggart — the man charged with shooting the motorist — throughout the protest, the affidavit states.

“As a protest organizer, John Sullivan is heard talking about seeing the shooting, looking at the gun and seeing smoke coming from it. John did not condemn the attempted murder nor attempt to stop it nor aide in its investigation by police.”

 

 

Here he is threatening to rip the president from the White House in D.C. in August.

So was Sullivan arrested? No. He claims he was there to “document” what was going on but somehow ended up in that front group at the doors. But interestingly, CNN saw no issue with interviewing him. Anderson Cooper had him on to talk about what had happened.

There’s also a viral video going around that was cited in a story earlier about the shooting of Ashli Babbitt. The person takes it from right next to Babbitt, approximately where Sullivan was. Warning for being very graphic.

 

 

That video was also tweeted from an Insurgence-related account, “Jayden Alexander,” which also uses BLM and Antifa hashtags. It seems to be another account for Sullivan.

We’ll update as we get more in.

Not saying there wasn’t Antifa folks involved. Good chance there was.  

But there was also some good ole MAGA folks involved too.....

No matter who any of them are affiliated with... left or right... they should all be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law:

 

Rick Saccone, a Republican former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, posted a photo of himself on Facebook with the caption, “We are storming the capitol. Our vanguard has broken thru the barricades. We will save this nation. Are u with me?” 

Del. Derrick Evans, a Republican from Wayne County, W.Va., won his first term as a state lawmaker in the November election and was sworn in last month. Video streaming on his Facebook page throughout the day showed him entering the Capitol building. 

Ashli Babbitt who died in the capital, was wearing a trump flag and was an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump and a follower and promoter of many well-known radical conservative activists as well as leaders of the QAnon conspiracy theory movement, according to her social media profiles.

Emily Hurt, a judge in the dog agility world and a well-known Trump enthusiast was there. 

Richard "Bingo" Barnett from Northwest Arkansas, a vocal member of the "stop the steal" movement,  was photographed at a Senator's desk and stole mail. 

Nick Ohcs, founder Proudboys Hawaii

Tim Gionet, far right activist

Jenny Cudd, of Texas, former Midland Mayoral candidate, owner of Becky's Flowers, avid Trump supporter. 

Adam Johnson from Bradenton, FL. his wife Susie is a doctor. He spends most of his time online making fun of blm. He is the one who stole the podium. 

Kristopher Drew (later made a video talking about how he was upset that antifa was getting credit for what he and his Patriot friends actually did)

Jake Angeli, 32, was the man in fur and horns he is a known cunanan conspiracy theorist and has been photographed countless times at various Trump supporting rallies. There are also photographs of him shaking hands with Rudy Giuliani. 

Jason Tankersley, Maryland Skinheads Founder

Joe Maurer, avid Trump supporter, is on tape talking about how the police opened up the gates and let him in as he stormed the building.

Doug Jensen from Des Moines, IA, lead the charge through the Capitol at the inception. Pto-Trumo extremist. 

Feel free to share this information with any other conspiracy theorist nut jobs who need to hear it. And add identities as they become available.

Guys, 

What happened was a disgrace. No matter who is involved. 

But having been in Washington DC on a trip in the summer of 2019--if find it very difficult to comprehend what happened, considering what all we had to go through to visit the Capitol building and the White House. I do understand that there were a lot more people there this week than when I visited, but still the immense security for a family of 4 and other regular families was incredible. For something like this to have happened, isn't just about the people storming the buildings, but also poor planning by supervisors and others prior to the rally. When you put both of them together, you get what happened. Which is that sad part, people died, but there will be NO MARCHES for the Air Force veteran like there were for several criminals. There will be NO MARCHES for the Capitol police officer that died either. Not that they deserve marches, But the facts are, they died while doing what they must have believed in.

Strange indeed.  Here is a video that shows the doors being opened up and officers letting folks enter the capitol with zero resistance.  **language alert** I've seen others where force was used to keep folks out.  Seems to be a little bit of everything.  Good actors, bad actors.  Cops doing their job, cops maybe not doing their job.  But the media will only ever show one side of this.  Is it criminal trespassing if the door is open and they let you walk right in?
