MAGA Mob Still Chilling Around The Capitol (Cops? What Cops?) As Dusk Approaches

Nicholas Kristof, New York Times, January 6, 2021:
Wednesday was a horrifying and shameful moment in American history. I've covered attempted coups in many countries around the world, and now I'm finally covering one in the United States. . . .

Many of those pro-Trump rioters probably dispute the idea of white privilege. But the fact that they were allowed to overrun the police and invade the Senate and House chambers was evidence of that privilege. . . .

In Portland, Ore., last summer, I saw federal authorities periodically use tear gas even against protesters who were peaceful and outside — so it was astonishing to see waves of protesters overrun the Capitol with almost no response. . . .

I know your pain, I know your hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side, but you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don't want anybody hurt. It's a very tough period of time. There's never been a time like this where such a thing happened, where they could take it away from all of us—from me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can't play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You're very special. You've seen what happens, the way others are treated—so bad and so evil. I know how you feel, but go home and go home in peace.
The video has been deleted from Trump's Twitter feed. Facebook deleted the video from its platform.

The woman who was shot earlier has died. 

Five other people were taken to hospital. 

At least one pipe bomb was found on the Capitol grounds.
