Guys, the Insurrectionists are planning another, uh, “protest” on September 18:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Far right extremist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers are planning to attend a rally later this month at the U.S. Capitol that is designed to demand “justice” for the hundreds of people who have been charged in connection with January’s insurrection, according to three people familiar with intelligence gathered by federal officials.
So what’s the plan?
The officials have been discussing security plans that involve reconstructing the fence as well as another plan that does not involve a fence, the people said. They were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
The planned Sept. 18 rally at the Capitol comes as a jittery Washington has seen a series of troubling one-off incidents — including, most recently, a man who parked a pickup truck near the Library of Congress and said he had a bomb and detonator. Among the most concerning events: A series of unexploded pipe bombs placed around the U.S. Capitol ahead of the Jan. 6 insurrection remain unexplained and no suspect has been charged.
The Stupid Coup didn’t let the fence stop them last time, so I have my doubts that it will be any more effective this time, and obviously IEDs scattered hither and yon will not be deterred by a fence. I hope their Plan B that does not involve a fence involves the National Guard.
UPDATE: well, related news – Liz Cheney named vice chair of the January 6 select committee. I guess they are being all bipartisan-y again?
