After successfully breaking into the Capitol on the 6th, U.S. President Trump’s supporters “morale increased greatly” and made bold remarks on social media platforms that they would return to Washington with weapons on the inauguration of President-elect Biden.
“do not ask for help Trump re-election, but only ask for war, and this time they will never show mercy”.
Experts say that the goal of Trump supporters is to enter Congress on the 6th, and Biden himself is the target on the 20th.
The second round of war is about to begin.
According to the World Daily on January 10, after the Capitol was “occupied” by Trump supporters, some people felt morale boosted and connected through online platforms to return to Washington about the day of Biden’s inauguration on January 20.
The pro-Trump right-wing group wrote on the Parler platform where Trump supporters gathered: “Many of us will revisit the old world on January 19, 2021, carry our weapons and show our determination to support the country, which the world will never forget! We are so large that no army or police force will be enough to compete with it.
An anonymous netizen posted on the message board of TheDonald.win: “The second round is January 20. I won’t show mercy to my men this time. I don’t even care about helping Trump re-election.
What I care about is going to war. Many netizens responded by calling him a “hero”.
At present, U.S. law enforcement agencies are busy tracking down the perpetrators of the seizure of Congress, while worrying that Biden’s inauguration will fall into the next attack.
Frank Figliuzzi, former assistant director of the counter-espionage department of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said that after the capture of Congress, violent radicals became more and more bold.
“This means that time is running out. Before they put it into action, Early removal of the most influential violent incitement factors.”
Megan Squire, a professor at Elon University, who specializes in the activities of online extremist organizations, pointed out that since Trump will not attend the 20th inauguration ceremony, the militants will focus all on Biden alone.
“They have no regret or shame about what they have done. It’s especially worrying. At present, I’m afraid the situation is not good.
The Capitol riots last week eventually killed five people, including congressional police officer Sinick, a woman shot dead inside the Capitol, and three people who were injured near the Capitol.
Howard Lippengood, a congressional police officer, died after work on the 9th. He also participated in the response to the congressional riots. It is not clear whether his death was related to the 6th incident.
The Capitol Hill reported that on the 10th local time, U.S. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C.
appealed to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to take additional measures to ensure the safety of the capital before Biden takes office.
Bowser also called for an extension of the “National Special Security Event (NSSE)” which is often seen by the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security as potential targets of terrorist attacks, such as the World Leaders Summit, International Organization Meeting, Presidential Nomination Conference and Presidential Inauguration.
Yahoo News said that at that time, the National Guard deployed to Washington, D.C., will be equipped with lethal weapons and its commanders will decide whether to use them or not.
