Democrats and other leftists have been shouting "insurrection" ever since the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol where a few hundred people moved beyond protest to breaking windows and doors and vandalizing the halls of Congress.
Despite evidence that it was a riot, Democrats have claimed it was an actual insurrection with the mob intent on overthrowing the U.S. government and taking over. Thousands of people have been arrested and convicted, given years in jail. Nancy Pelosi orchestrated a years-long congressional "investigation" to build that evidence, and a local prosecutor in Georgia even has claimed the actions all combined to represent an "organized crime" scheme.
Now one commentary bluntly has challenged, "Well… We're waiting."
Obviously for a similar law enforcement agenda against leftists, a "Palestinian mob," whose members "descended on DNC headquarters" this week in Washington, leaving six Capitol police officers injured.
"We have handled hundreds of peaceful protests, but last night’s group was not peaceful. The crowd failed to obey our lawful orders to move back from the DNC, where Members of Congress were in the building." https://t.co/9fsHgGHD78

Last night approximately 200 people gathered in front of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters to protest the conflict in the Middle East.
We have handled hundreds of peaceful protests, but last night’s group was not peaceful. The crowd failed to obey our lawful orders to move back from the DNC, where Members of Congress were in the building.
When the group moved dumpsters in front of the exits, pepper sprayed our officers and attempted to pick up the bike rack, our teams quickly introduced consequences – pulling people off the building, pushing them back, and clearing them from the area, so we could safely evacuate the Members and staff.
Six officers were treated for injuries, from minor cuts to being pepper sprayed to being punched.
24-year old Ruben Arthur Camacho of Woodbridge, NY, was arrested for Assault on a Police Officer after an officer witnessed Camacho slam another officer into a garage door and then punch the female officer in the face.
Last night our team was quick, decisive, courageous and in control.
When demonstrations cross the line into illegal activity it is our responsibility to maintain order and ensure people’s safety.
Twitchy commented, "We're just guessing that CNN or MSNBC will not be having interviews with any of the officers who were injured last night. … Now many are waiting for FBI raids and the formation of an 11/15 commission."
Wait. You mean you will not be attaining cell phone records to show where these insurrectionist were? You won't be arresting everyone that was just there? You won't be tracking down & raiding their homes? You won't be throwing them in prison without due process & sentencing them…

The Washington Examiner reported one lawmaker described the events as having "scared me more than Jan. 6."
"Police were wearing gas masks … this was not peaceful."
The mob blocked members of Congress from leaving the DNC, the report said.
"It is unknown how many Democratic lawmakers were present when police intervened. It was reported that House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) was among the numerous Democrats in attendance when chanting could be heard from outside. However, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) told CNN Wednesday evening that Democratic leadership had already left by the time the lawmakers were blockaded in the building," the report said.
Police evacuated other lawmakers.
"I’m with my baby at my office and the Capitol offices just went into lockdown because of these clowns. Imagine being that unhinged. Nut jobs," Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., said on social media.
The Daily Caller News Foundation said, "Demonstrators blocked the exits to the DNC building with dumpsters, pepper sprayed officers, and 'attempted to pick up the bike rack,' according to a press release from the USCP. Officers tried to disperse the crowd by pushing them back, pulling them away from the entrances, and 'clearing them from the area.'"
