  • In fact, tomorrow?

  • I don't even like to say it cause I'll be arrested.

  • I'll say it.

  • We need to go in to the Capitol.”

  • ROBERT EVANS: So, on the sixth,

  • we saw all of these different wings of the right:

  • QAnon adherents,

  • Christian dominionists,

  • MAGA people, like normal hardcore supporters of the president,

  • and we saw out-and-out neo-Nazis,

  • getting closer and closer wound together

  • over their mutual desire to overthrow the elected government,

  • which they all see as illegitimate.

  • They all want to do violence to their political enemies.

  • You can see shades of it within Rush Limbaugh:

  • There cannot be a peaceful coexistence

  • of two completely different theories of life,

  • theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs.”

  • Tucker Carlson: “We allowed BLM and Antifa

  • to destroy our country in George Floyd's name.

  • How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles

  • decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?”

  • They've all been urging different chunks of this,

  • and getting people more and more comfortable

  • with the idea of trying to overthrow the government

  • in order to stop the left.

  • They have been trying to provoke a race war.”

  • They're coming for you and your neighborhood!”

  • We're all going to have to defend ourselves.”

  • Antifa mobs saying that if you don't give us power,

  • we're going to keep terrorizing your cities.”

  • They want to destroy America.”

  • LOGAN JAFFE: So I've been covering the the far right

  • and white supremacist movements for a few years now.

  • Since the beginning of the pandemic,

  • I noticed this immediate gathering in online spaces

  • of people who were very against government shutdowns,

  • calling these actions tyranny,

  • and organizing themselves into various groups.

  • The so-called 'Wolverine Watchmen' were furious over coronavirus shutdowns.”

  • The group calls itself 'Women for America.' Organizers call for a full reopening.”

  • “A new group called 'Save our Country,'

  • which is all about lobbying for a quick opening of the economy.”

  • Right after the election, we get this very large Facebook group, called

  • Stop The Steal.”

  • “A group with some 360,000 members...”

  • “..aimed at delegitimizing the election process.”

  • The page was filled with false claims about voter fraud,

  • and called for boots on the ground to protect the integrity of the vote.”

  • We did see protests with the same name

  • popping up in various state capitals.

  • Stop the steal! Stop the steal!”

  • We want justice! We want justice!”

  • If you think you will attack our Constitution, you've got another thing coming!”

  • EVANS: There's this interlocking network

  • of right wing thought leaders, who have been, for years,

  • increasingly pushing for violence

  • on behalf of this insurgent conservative movement.

  • Now it's time to act on the enemy.

  • People need to have their battle rifles and everything ready at their bedsides.

  • This is it.”

  • “I'd put the heads on pikes.

  • I'd put em at the two corners of the White House

  • as a warning, to federal bureaucrats.

  • That's how you win the revolution.”

  • What can you and I do to a state legislator?

  • Besides kill them.

  • Although, we should not… I'm not advising that,

  • but I mean, what else can you do, right?"

  • JAFFE: When you start seeing that language

  • being taken very literally

  • on social media, and different forums, to me that's a very clear red flag.

  • For example, this one post from this website called My Militia,

  • which I've been following for a while now:

  • Somebody writes, "I say, take the hill or die trying."

  • I don't know how much more explicit you can be.

  • Posts, and comments, even on Instagram, sayingviolence is necessary.”

  • And these are just two examples of a sentiment

  • that has been expressed over and over.

  • EVANS: No one has any excuse to be surprised

  • by what happened on the 6th. It was signposted, in places like Salem.

  • I mean, I had my hand broken by a Proud Boy

  • at a massive thousand-person street fight that the police didn't even show up at.

  • One of the key organizers

  • of the left-wing counterprotest to Unite the Right,

  • she was assaulted by a mob of neo-Nazis.

  • We are penned in, we are surrounded on all sides...”

  • One of the people in that mob who assaulted her,

  • he's a popular white nationalist live streamer.

  • We're standing up for our rights! We're proud to be white!“

  • He was present at the Capitol on the 6th, inciting people to storm the Capitol.

  • Dude, we're in the Capitol, right now!”

  • When you're asking about, like, what were the signs?

  • How did this develop?

  • It developed in exactly the way

  • that anti-fascist activists have been warning it has been for years.

  • These people, who are drawing a movement to them,

  • and inciting violence around the country,

  • and eventually it will burst in some way that's too big to ignore.

  • And it finally did.

In fact, tomorrow?
