#DisruptJ20 Radicals Plot To Shut Down Washington During Trump Inauguration

Marxists, anarchists, and other assorted groups will converge in Washington next week.

With the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States a little more than a week away, anarchists and other assorted protestors are planning to converge on the nation’s capitol in an attempt to disrupt the peaceful transition of power.

While several of the groups applying for permits to hold demonstrations are pro-Trump (see partial list below), many of them are opposed to Trump’s presidency.

Groups ranging from the ANSWER Coalition to the Westboro Baptist Church have applied for permits to hold demonstrations and protest the inauguration.

One group, in particular, is planning on trying to shut down Washington, DC entirely.

“So, we’re going for what I’d generally term a clusterf–k,” says Legba Carrefour, a local anarchist handling press for the more radical protest-organizing network DisruptJ20, which has more than 1,700 Facebook group members.

We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” he says. “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before. We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.” [Emphasis added.]

“If Trump is to be inaugurated at all, let it happen behind closed doors,” #DisruptJ20 organizers state on Facebook, “showing the true face of the security state Trump will preside over.”

#DisruptJ20 organizers stated on Twitter that they are working with #OccupyInauguration, Workers’ World, as well as have certain unions backing their efforts to shut down Washington during Trump’s inauguration.

Whether the protestors are successful in shutting down Trump’s inauguration will largely be dependent on the Capitol police department’s preparations to handle the protestors.

“We’re bringing in about 3,000 or more police officers to assist us on that day, which is not uncommon,” Interim D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said in a one-on-one interview with WTOP.

He said it’s a treat for local police officers outside D.C. to take part in history, and it provides extra resources for D.C. police. The National Guard also is bringing in an additional 13,000 guardsman to secure the National Mall.

Whether that will be enough to foil the #DisruptJ20 organizers’ plans to shut down DC remains to be seen.

  1. The epaceful transition of power has been an American hallmark of our Republic. Those who would disrupt it, demonstrate against it or try and create chaos because of their political views – should NOT be allowed anywhere near the Swearing in. Yes, they have the right to voice their concerns and beliefs, but let them do it away from the capitol and allow those who are Americans to observe and participate in their choice for this President.

    No one will deny them their right to protest – just where they choose to do it. Never in American history has this nation seen such a communist/socialistic condemnation of a freely elected President. Just because he is NOT a millenial, NOT a socialist, NOT gay, and NOT willing to violate our Rights and Freedoms like these pathetic excuses for citizens are – they want to protest. This is the epitome of what our schools have taught our children (that they are entitle to everything for nothing) and they are crying because the tap is about to be turned off. I wish ALL the Liberal communist socialists would move to Venezuela, so that they can see first hand exactly what their vision of America will become.

    America is great because our forefathers had enough foresight to understand that “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”! Every true american patriot realized this, saw it and made a concerted effort to take our country back and return it to the vision our forefathers had of their America. Bottom line is this – if YOU do NOT like our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and the way this nation was founded and the principles it was founded on – LEAVE! Go to a notion that shares your (lack of) values and see how much you like it. The rest of the true American patriots have spoken, and WE the People will not be denied any longer!
