This week, roughly 100 pro-Palestinian rebels took over a government House office building in Washington, DC, and chanted “ceasefire now” and also “let Gaza live.”
The majority of the insurrectionists were wearing masks and were dressed in black. They held a banner that said Israel should stop protecting itself from missiles fired on citizens. They took over the bottom floor of the Cannon Office Building, which is one of the three primary buildings where politicians and staff work.
The protest was led by Representative Rashida Tlaib:
At the event on January 6, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) saw that there were different rules for the pro-Palestinian rebels and the protesters. “There’s an uprising going on right now on Capitol Hill,” the caption of the footage she posted said. “They say they’re seeking peace, but what they really want is money for terrorists.”
Greene said she didn’t understand why Capitol Police let the rebels into the building. “I have no idea,” she told someone in the video:
During the uprising, images emerged of Capitol Police capturing the rebels and taking them out of the structure.
“Insurrection, if it wasn’t clear enough, is when conservatives demonstrate. When liberals protest,” claimed Luca Cacciatore, a conservative pundit.
A reporter for Fox News named Chad Pergram shared a picture of Representative Brandon Williams (R-NY) “standing quietly with an Israeli flag” while the pro-Palestinian uprising happened.
A hospital in Gaza was bombed this week, which led to the protest. Several pieces of information from the Israeli Defense Forces as well as media outlets after the blast showed that it was caused by a Hamas rocket going off course, not an Israeli attack.
Also, many leaders quickly said that Israel was to blame for the hospital explosion, even though officials were gathering proof that showed the opposite. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), an extreme Democrat, were among them.
