As we reported earlier, there were more police and media than demonstrators at the Justice for J6 rally in DC today.
One of the funniest images from the event was this picture that my colleague Brad Slager wrote about earlier.

These guys were so obvious that a lot of people had fun mocking them — the coordinated shirts, shorts, watches, and sunglasses. Also, what looked like possible guns in their pockets.
HELLO FBI undercover at a MAGA rally – where did they go astray?
1. Cuffed shorts
2. Anchor pattern shirt
3. High and tight haircuts
4. Suede sneakers
6. Matching $300 sunglasses
7. Zero flags nor Trump regalia

Even Donald Trump Jr. had a little fun with them.
Fed 1: Definitely not a firearm in my pocket… I’m just happy to see you.
Fed 2: America is a top 10 maybe top 20 country… um, I mean America First… yea that’s it… America First!!!
These guys would be great undercover at a golf course on Martha’s Vineyard. https://t.co/4YEzaDix43

But it was just a sign of what people thought would occur at this event — which some termed “Fedfest” or “Entrapment 2021.” People thought it was going to be a Fed-a-rama, and it looks like they were on target with that one.
President Donald Trump had actually seemed to warn people not to go.
“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said to the Federalist. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed,” he said. That reasoning was why there was likely the light attendance.
According to the U.S. Capitol Police, the crowd was estimated to be about 400 to 450 people excluding law enforcement (well, the declared and out law enforcement) but including members of the media. Just as Trump said.
Then radical Rep. Ted Lieu (Delusional-CA) claimed the lack of attendance showed Trump’s influence was waning. Even though Trump was basically saying it would be a “set-up” — obviously not encouraging people to go. The right basically stayed home, and mocked the press and the feds who were there.

There was one alleged arrest/detention of a guy with a gun. But what was so funny was, when the heavily armored-up US Capitol Police, who looked like they were wearing Stormtrooper outfits — just in black — tossed this guy because he was allegedly carrying a gun, they pulled a badge out of his pocket. So, even the guy who was supposedly detained for a weapon was a cop, too.
Clearer Video of USCP Arrest > Capitol Police in our video looks at detained man’s wallet, twice. You see in those 2 moments, what *appears* to be a gold law enforcement badge. Right now, we don’t know if person detained w a gun was a real officer or not. Requested info from USCP pic.twitter.com/KAOKUjoBmD

Ford Fischer confirmed that the man said he was law enforcement.
The masked man claimed “I’m just here” when asked if he’s undercover as he presented a badge to justify the gun he was apparently wearing, before being pulled out.
Other than undercover, he could have hypothetically been simply masked & off duty with his badge and gun concealed. https://t.co/W9OagHNMij

The black mask might have given him away, too — not something someone on the right would likely be wearing outdoors. More a fed or Antifa move.
But it’s hilarious that even the participant allegedly arrested for a gun was actually law enforcement of some sort. So many feds, they’re arresting each other.
