VIDEO: Tuesday Trump Rally Turns Tense as MAGA Berates Law Enforcement

The deteriorating situation at Black Lives Matter Plaza had many pro-Trump demonstrators furious with law enforcement.

Washington DC, the nation’s capital, is about to bear witness to something spectacular – no matter which way things go under the dome of the Capitol.

The large thongs of MAGA-wing Republicans gathered in the streets of DC have been primed.  They’re agitated.  And they very well could kick of something monumental and loud later on Wednesday.

Where many had hoped for a peaceful protest, the news coming out of DC on Tuesday night was not good.

With closed streets and shuttered businesses keeping many residents away from downtown D.C., Trump supporters have begun gathering for a slate of rallies to protest Congress certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.

The Metropolitan Police Department announced six arrests related to the demonstrations as of 10 p.m. on Tuesday, with a series of gun-related charges, assault, assault on a police officer, possession of a taser, possession of illegal fireworks, and a traffic offense.

The arrests come as far-right groups have threatened to violate the District’s strict gun laws and otherwise wreak havoc in the city. Acting D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee pledged this week that law enforcement would not tolerate firearms at the demonstrations. There’s signage throughout the downtown area explaining that all firearms are prohibited within 1,000 feet of the signs.

One of the more intense moments from the demonstration came as protesters berated DC police for not allowing them to enter Black Lives Matter Plaza.

As Samuel Jackson so famously said in Jurassic Park:  “Hold on to your butts”.
