[UPDATED] Who were the people who entered the Capitol on the afternoon of January 6th?


Someone named Amuse wrote a great Twitter thread on some of the people that entered the Capitol during the riot, to dispel the fake news the media is spreading about them all being “wealthy, well-armed, white nationalists seeking to overthrow the government”:

 
Klete Keller, an Olympic swimmer…

 
Aaron Mostofsky, Democrat, left-wing agitator…



 
Ashli E. Babbitt, American hero, Trump supporter…

 
Jacob Chansley, BLM and Climate Change activist, QAnon and Trump supporter…

 
John Sullivan, anti-Trump, left-wing agitator…

I also remind you that the New York Post reported that law enforcement also recognized two people dressed as MAGA people who were Antifa. We never found out their names.

Look the point here is clear, that not all of these people were well-armed ‘white nationalists’. In fact I would dare say that most of the people rushing the Capitol that day were not. Most of them were likely just normal Trump supporters raging over what we all believe was a stolen election, losing their minds and rioting in the Capitol.

But the media and Democrats want to paint these people with a broad ‘white nationalist’ brush as they’ve been doing for four years, so they can purge Trump supporters from social media and destroy the movement with other authoritarian actions like we saw yesterday. They don’t care about truth, just about destroying their political adversaries.

 
UPDATE: It looks like John Sullivan is in fact in custody now according to this one report:
