Political extremism is on the rise here in the United States, with incidents of violence and mayhem flaring up from coast to coast on a near-weekly basis.
In fact, for liberal cities like Portland, Oregon, some of these violent riots have been ongoing nightly and for months.
But clear across the country, in Washington DC, there are fears that a September 18th rally meant to show support for the insurrectionists of January 6th, (and for Ashli Babbitt), could bring trouble to the capital once again.
Just days ahead of the event, a man has been arrested with several weapons outside of the DNC headquarters in a van adorned with a swastika.
The U.S. Capitol Police on Monday arrested a man from California found with multiple knives inside his truck parked near the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters in Washington, D.C.Trending:
Donald Craighead, 44, of Oceanside, California was arrested for possession of prohibited weapons.
Around midnight, a Capitol Police officer out on patrol noticed a Dodge Dakota pickup truck “with a swastika and other white supremacist symbols painted on it,” the department said in a statement. The truck did not have a license plate.
The incident was strange, to say the least.
At that time, Craighead allegedly stated that he was “on patrol” and “began talking about white supremacist ideology and other rhetoric pertaining to white supremacy,” the U.S. Capitol Police said.
White nationalists have long been injecting themselves into the political fray here in the United States, and the liberal media has had no qualms with relating their presence at these events to their conjured narrative regarding the radicalization of the GOP.
