Flashback: New Video Emerges Of Riots at Trump’s 2017 Inauguration
“Documentary film crew releases dramatic, never before seen footage of the 2017 Inauguration riots.”
You may have been wondering about the massive security in Washington, DC this week. Perhaps Democrats are jst worried about people behaving the way their supporters did during Trump’s inauguration in 2017.
In case you have forgotten, it wasn’t pretty, and now new footage has been released by the producers of the upcoming film King of News.
In a press release, the producers write:
Documentary film crew releases dramatic, never before seen footage of the 2017 Inauguration riots. The footage was gathered as part of an ongoing documentary about the fight for dominance playing out between establishment and independent news organizations.
The shocking footage exposes a coordinated attack on the 2017 inauguration of President Donald Trump. Highlights include anarchists preparing for violent clashes with police (10:22), violent attacks on attendees (2:08), destruction of property (9:50), and the physical premeditated blockades that succeed in preventing voters from attending the Presidential Inauguration (3:29).
Additional highlights include interviews with blockade organizers Code Pink and Disrupt J20, whose stated goal was to “shut this inauguration down.” Code Pink organizer Tighe Barry is asked, “Are you guys going to cause some mayhem?” His response is an emphatic “Yes sir!” (3:56) He adds, “We blocked this street because we feel like we have the right to tell them not to come into our city.” (4:27)
J20 organizer is quoted saying, “These people should be referred to as neo-nazis, as fascist, as the legitimate scum they are, so they can be wiped from this country!” (1:48) Black Trump supporters are seen being called “Uncle Toms!” while also having their Trump hats snatched off their heads. (10:51)
Producers of the documentary explained their decision to release this footage now, “It was never our intent to release any footage while we’re still in production. We have held this dramatic content for 4 years in anticipation of its final release in the completed film, however, recent events have convinced us of the imperative to release this excerpt now.”
The video below features Gateway Pundit publisher Jim Hoft and focuses on a few different moments from the inauguration.
First, Trump supporters try to attend a dinner to celebrate Trump’s victory. They are harassed on their way in and out of the restaurant. Jack Posobeic of OAN News describes people throwing ‘D’ sized batteries.
In the second segment, protesters can be seen blocking streets to prevent people from attending the inauguration. Code Pink, which was silent for the eight years of Obama’s presidency, has been suddenly reactivated as an activist from their ranks screams into a microphone about how Trump is not his president.
Black-clad Antifa types can be seen destroying property and hurling bricks at police.
Finally, black Trump supporters are accused of being “Uncle Toms.”
It’s a sickening sight and watching this video will make you angry, but it’s very important to remember what happened. Strong language warning as well:

It’s also important to remember that the vast majority of charges against these rioters were dropped.
The left got away with this.

What riots isn’t the propaganda machine says that was the oppressed expressing their opinion? It didn’t become a threat until the left took power.
Riots? Looks mostly peaceful to me. Any violence I do see is obviously caused by rightwing racist political extremist white supremacist insurrectionists, who must be exterminated.
Your loyalty oath and statement of confession of sins is in the mail. Be sure to keep a look out for it and return it promptly, less someone drops by from the government, or Twitter, to follow up on it.
That looks like an insurrection and attempt to stop a lawfully elected President from being seated. Where is the National Guard? Even though there were assaults and arson, did any of the perps end up in body bags?
What is ironic, the Trump rally was infiltrated by the same scummy type of people as caused that riot.
But…but…the left said those were GOOD riots.
Riots in service of “social justice.”
What the left calls social justice is always injustice.
These riots always lead to small business closing, and if they are not bankrupted by the event, they move out of the city. Big businesses also leave, never to return.
Then city riff raff whine that their community is under served, and that it is racism.
There is a reason that people in those communities wallow in ignorance and poverty, they never think ahead, never consider consequences.
These will be banned from Twit, FB etc very soon and the people who provided them will be disappeared.
My blood boils when I think about what these goose-stepping, vile, totalitarian Dhimmi-crats have put POTUS Trump and the country through, the last four-plus years.
And, now, the hypocrite Dhimmi-crats have conveniently developed sudden amnesia, so that they can’t recall any of the perpetual, ceaseless subversion, destruction, violence, incitement and general nihilism that they engaged in, non-stop, for four-plus years. And, these idiots have the gall to presume to lecture conservative American about how to behave!
There has been an active war on this country by the Progressive, liberal left for the last five years. And, most of this country refused to acknowledge that. We have endured, the renewed rie of the racist boogeyman, physical attacks on ordinary people and businesses. We have seen widespread rioting, arson, burglary, theft, assault and even murder at the hands of liberal radical thugs. We have seen these thugs let off scot free, while their political opponents have the book thrown at them. We have seen LE vilified, for doing their job. We have seen politicians, especially liberal politicians, lock down the population and destroy the US economy over a mild virus. We have seen the political class steal a Presidential election, without consequence. We are seeing the political class flooding the Capitol with armed military against an unverified “threat”. And, then vetting the members of that military for loyalty to the incoming President. It is just a little late for people to suddenly wake up and point to the hypocrisy we have all seen during that time. Far too little, far too late.
By dusk, tomorrow, this will be an occupied country, no longer the home of the free. Enjoy it.
“”By dusk, tomorrow, this will be an occupied country, no longer the home of the free. Enjoy it.””
Maybe more than you think. I can easily see a near future when the Chinese feel it necessary to send military forces to defend their interests in this country.
Hate feeds on hate, violence breeds violence. The wrongs of another do not justify more wrong doing.
So if you decry this, where have you posted such opinions against the violence the Left does?
What progressive websites show you taking a stand against the leftist rioting and violence? Mother Jones?? Slate??
Please tell us you’re not just denouncing it here!!
Out of curiosity I went to slate and mother joneser.
Couldn’t get to comment sections.
None of the sites you mention have comment sections so that would be difficult. Bit yeah sure if I come across a relevant article on another site which has a comment section then I’d comment as above. My thoughts are simple really commit a crime get punished for it, the persuasion of the criminal means nothing.
Both Slate and Mother Jones have comment sections. You do need to register with the site or comment system to comment, but you have to do that here, too.
It would seem that the poster (poseur?) wasn’t all that enthusiastic to spread his views to both primary sides of the political spectrum.
Are we really surprised?
Echoing mochajava – are you posting stuff like this on left wing sites or are you just a concern troll? I think we know the answer.
Just to be clear I am addressing mark311
“Hate feeds on hate, violence breeds violence. The wrongs of another do not justify more wrong doing.”
This is true. But, who brought the hatred first? Who brought the violence first? It wasn’t the Trump supporters. It was the Progressive liberal left.
Racism, against Blacks by Whites, was all but dead, in his country, 2008. It was revived by the Obama Administration and the left. Two Obama inaugurations and no riots, no threats against the new President. Yet we had both on the day of Trump’s inauguration. Eight years of the Obama Presidency and we did not hear widespread claims that he was insane, a bigot, a fascist, the next Adolph Hitler or the anti-Christ. There were no demonstrations against his appointees, especially within the halls of Congress. He was not libeled and slandered and forced to undergo a trumped up, bogus investigation for three years. There were no riots or even meaningful demonstrations during his Presidency, except those used to gin up support for a false racist narrative.
The “deplorable” Trump supporting portion of the population played by the rules. They did not propagate hatred, or violence. They were civil. Every single demonstration, which resulted in violence [including Charlottesville], was the direct result of peaceful demonstrators being physically attacked by left-wing goons. Trump supporters did not loot, burn cities assault and murder people. That was the left. Even the March into thee Capital was relatively peaceful.
So, who stoked the flames of violence and hatred? The left. And who has NEVER been held accountable for that? The left. It is always blamed on the white middle class and trump supporters. Well, when you get hit, it might be nice to turn the other cheek. But, eventually you run out of cheeks to turn.
Yes, I only have 4 ?
I think you make some valid points, for clarity I condemn all violent actions and any distortions in the media. I do think what you say is an over simplification , the idea of that racism ended under Obama just isn’t true. And like wise the left wing tendency to justify violence not good at all. The Trump years were pretty chaotic and sifting through why those years were so chaotic will take a little thinking and stepping back. Trump was controversial for a number of reasons so protests were understandable when he won the electoral college vote and not the popular vote (again for clarity that doesn’t excuse the violent and criminal acts). Painting an origin story for these times will also take some thought, was it the McConnell senate leadership preventing Garland taking his position, or was it Hilary being so deeply divisive and resented, or maybe it was more grounded in economics where large sections of society have been left behind, or maybe it’s the slow creep of big tech or maybe some other reason or maybe a all of them. I think the point I’m trying to make as much as anything with my previous statement is that what will be achieved from becoming more extreme is a worsening of the situation, it’s not a solution.
In the words of the inimitable, though mythical, COL Sherman Potter: “Horse Hockey”. Just more applied “Whataboutism”.
Still perpetuating the myth of white on black racism. I’m sorry, but by 2008, the KKK and other white supremacist organizations were almost extinct. Klan rallies were drawing more FBI agents than Klan members. Legal actions for civil rights violations were at an all time low. There was NO formal or institutional segregation anywhere in this country. Integrated neighborhoods were the rule, not the exception. Ironically, the place where racism was most prevalent was within the Black community. What brought it back was a resurgence of the for-profit racial grievance industry. This was supported by the Obama administration, including the President himself. The Martin case, the Bron Case and the Gray case were all legal scams designed to squeeze money out of third parties and they all ended in exposure as such. Though not until they had caused significant damage to the innocent.
Then you have the 2017 Inauguration riots. Your justification is that they were legitimate actions because people ignorant of the governmental system under which they live were upset because the Electoral College vote was different that the popular vote. Huh??? It is not like we do not have this simple civics lesson every four years? The news media tallies up the number of electoral votes for every single state and and drone on excessively about the “what ifs” of winning or losing individual states. Yet, somehow it is not justified for people to demonstrate due to the lack of government investigation of growing evidence of organized election fraud. Especially when we contrast the amount of damage done during the 2017 riots and the Capital Incursion.
Now, let’s speak of becoming “more extreme”, shall we. So far the deplorables have held largely peaceful demonstrations. All were aimed at specific, non-peaceful activities of the left. Those that devolved into violence did so as a result of physical attacks by leftist counter protestors. The liberal Progressives did nothing to control or stop rioting in over 40 cities in this country which directly attacked innocent citizens. They allowed arson, looting, actual insurrection [CHAZ/CHOP and attacks on local and federal facilities], assault and battery and homicide to occur, while denigrating the LE force needed to control the violence. The Progressive Left has been attacking the law abiding, predominantly white, middle class as violent racist bigots. They have been caught lying over and over and over again, without any liability. And, evidence is mounting that organized fraud stole a Presidential election. But, it doesn’t stop there.
Now, the organs of government and big business are being turned upon the citizenry. Suppression of those who have differing opinions than the Progressive Left are essentially banished from society. History is being destroyed and/or rewritten. Massive force is being directed at anyone who does not toe the Progressive line. A mild virus was used to destroy the Global Economy, for political purposes. And, the threat of using military force against anyone who protests is on display.
Violence is not desirable. However, sometimes it is necessary. Human beings are essentially amoral opportunists. This is why we are at the top of the food chain on this planet. Because of this factor, humans develop societies. These societies agree on rules [laws], which govern conduct, and establish enforcement agencies [LEA], which are authorized to use reasonable violent means to enforce these rules, and courts to decide disagreements. When society functions properly, in a neutral and fair manner for all citizens, there is little strife. However, when it does not function in this manner, then those who are disenfranchised have to do something to get the attention of the rest of society. If all the normal societal channels are closed to them, then they are left with force. And force usually involve some form of violence.
As far as I am concerned, these are bullies rationalizing their atrocious behavior. My experience is that bullies only understand one thing. Some look the part, others wear suits, and those are worse.
This appears to be your shtick – you pretend to miss the point. Or are you really that dull?
Let’s be clear, there are only two types of protests: peaceful – lawful protests and violent unlawful protests. The same analysis applies in a content neutral manner. Law enforcement is charged with applying the same rules and criteria equally to everyone.
Perhaps the failure to prosecute the lawless protesters in January 2017 opened the door to the degeneration of civil discourse in the following years. I don’t know, but I am sure that it did not help.
To the extent that people were arrested at the scene of the violent protests, they should have been fully prosecuted using the available film evidence. The U.S. Attorney should have issued a press release saying “We love when you visit DC. We love when you exercise your First Amendment rights. We celebrate your passion and determination. However, when anyone crosses the line into violence, they will be prosecuted, regardless of their viewpoint. We will provide them with all the due process of law and if they are found guilty, the sentence will be determined by an independent judiciary. We celebrate the peaceful transfer of power; we celebrate the rule of law, and we will show it by applying the law equally to everyone.”
You are correct. Unfortunately it is four years too late for all that.
“Who says protests have to be peaceful?”
Only Republican protests, apparently. BTW, so far about 50% of the people videoed in the House appear to be Antifa, the rest mostly cranks. Bison head appears to have been led in by a police officer and was decidedly calm and did not cause damage, at least on video. I classify him as a crank.
You did? It feels more like you withheld this “dramatic content” because releasing it before the election would hurt Biden’s chances of election.
