The FBI Claims Armed Protesters Will 'Storm' State Capitols on Inauguration Day; Don't Get Drawn Into This Nonsense

According to various media, the FBI is declaring that on Inauguration Day, armed groups are planning to hold demonstrations and “storm” state capitols across the nation. Here is a sampling:

CNN: “The FBI has received information indicating “armed protests” are being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol in Washington, DC in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, according to an internal bulletin obtained by CNN.”

ABC: “Starting this week and running through at least Inauguration Day, armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols and at the U.S. Capitol, according to an internal FBI bulletin obtained by ABC News.”

BBC: “There are reports of armed groups planning to gather at all 50 state capitols and in Washington DC in the run-up to his 20 January inauguration.”

USA Today: “As armed supporters of President Donald Trump prepare to converge on state capitals and Washington, D.C., this weekend and Inauguration Day, some legal experts are calling on authorities to enforce longstanding laws outlawing organized groups that act as citizen-run, unauthorized militias.”

I don’t know what to make of this FBI report. The FBI has been on the “white supremacist militia” kick since before they slaughtered the Branch Davidians and gunned down Vicki Weaver. As I pointed out in The FBI’s Latest Homegrown Terrorist Plot Is an Obvious Joke but What Is Going to Happen to the People Involved Is Not, virtually all these militia arrests have one thing in common, that is, the group doing the planning is riddled with FBI informants who push members into a criminal conspiracy and then introduce them to an FBI agent to close the deal.

These kinds of posters appearing

look more like someone trolling for what a “white supremacist militia” looks like in their imagination than anything else.

If someone tries to rope you into one of these, don’t play. You might even want to consider cutting that person out of your circle of friends as a potential agent provocateur. If you don’t know the person, perhaps a good insurance policy would be reporting them to law enforcement.

Nothing good will come of this madness…assuming that it is any more substantial than the electrons it was transmitted with.

This is the bottom line. Showing up armed on Inauguration Day does nothing to change anything for the better. It hands very potent imagery to the left. We are entering a period where gun ownership, free speech, and freedom of assembly will be under coordinated attack by the Administrative State, which will be 100% controlled by neo-Communists. Please don’t make it easy on them. Please don’t give them the reasons they need to shut you down or imprison you or restrict the rights of millions of Americans because someone felt like LARPing.
