In intense video footage taken at the FBI building in Washington DC on Wednesday, protesters participating in the “Million Mask March” confronted police officers, screaming in their faces and taunting them, with one protester seen pushing an officer while yelling, “Go ahead, tase me! Bring it. Bring it, bitch!”

Protesters can be seen in the videos below attempting to bait police officers into responding with physical force by shoving and yelling at them. The officers can be seen remaining calm even though surrounded by protesters trying to provoke them during a demonstration that was, in part, about police brutality.

As reported by Free Thought, the activist group Anonymous scheduled marches  in major cities, including Los Angeles and London, to express frustration with the political system and police brutality. Protesters used the march to don Guy Fawkes masks and black clothing associated with the ‘black bloc’ movement while confronting police officers called in to monitor the protests.

In Washington DC, a group attempted to enter the FBI building only to be greeted by a wall of police officers. In one video, protesters stand in front of police officers, screaming in their faces as officers brandish night sticks demanding they step back. The mostly young and white protesters can be heard chanting  “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!”  a phrase associated with protests in black communities following the shooting of African-American teen Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

In a second video, protesters can be seen cursing at police officers and throwing debris at them before officers are seen  pursuing of one unidentified man. As police surround the man he can be heard telling an officer ” I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything.”

As officers handcuff the man, they are surrounded by protesters yelling “What did he do?” with one man in a yellow t-shirt screaming, “What the fuck did he do?” as an officer draws his taser.

After being pushed back by the officer, the man tells the officer “Go ahead, tase me! Bring it. Bring it, bitch!” while police lead the man away followed by the taunting crowd.

Marchers also entered the Monsanto building in Washington DC to protest GMO labeling  before being removed by building security.

Protests were also held in Denver, with ten arrested after vandalizing the state capital building with spray paint, and three people were arrested in a Ferguson protest.

The protests were scheduled by Anonymous to coincide with Guy Fawkes Day, in memory of Fawkes who attempted to blow up the House of Lords in England on Nov. 5, 1605.

‘Tiny brain. Tiny man. Tiny desk. Massive ego.’ Donald Trump mocked for ‘throwing a tantrum’ at ‘the kids table’

Published

on

President Donald Trump gave a Thanksgiving Day address from a comically tiny desk in the White House, setting off a stream of mockery throughout the evening.

The president aired his grievances, lashed out at reporters and told outrageous lies about the election -- which he insisted had been stolen from him -- but most observers were distracted by that unusually small desk adorned with a large presidential seal.

The biggest laugh of 2020 was the way the Trump administration travesty died with a whimper

This story is part of a series on good things that happened in 2020. Read them all here.

I woke up just in time to see Donald Trump's tweet that started it all: "Lawyers News Conference Four Seasons, Philadelphia. 11:00 a.m."

It was four days after the election — a Sunday — and I'd crashed out the night before after endlessly refreshing the AP Politics Twitter feed and analyzing the cursed New York Times election needle for what felt like 90 hours straight. But for the first time in years, I woke up with a glimmer of political hope for our nation as it looked like Trump's window to victory was closing.

Trump is ‘untethered to reality’ and his Thanksgiving rant proves it: CNN’s Berman

Published

on

CNN host John Berman on Friday lit into President Donald Trump for going on an unhinged Thanksgiving rant about the 2020 election in which he once again falsely claimed that he won.

Berman in particular zeroed in on Trump's seething anger at Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason, who asked the president on Thursday if he'd concede that he lost the election.
