If I didn't know any better, I'd say they were hoping for and provoking a civil war.
That's what this is all about: get normal people, people who pose no danger to society but who oppose the present overthrow of the US, all upset.
Washington CNN — Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested Friday after a morning of peaceful protests and coordinated disruptions of Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony gave way to ugly street clashes in downtown Washington.
At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital after run-ins with protesters, DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo told CNN. Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said the officers’ injuries were considered minor and not life threatening.
Bursts of chaos erupted on 12th and K streets as black-clad “antifascist” protesters smashed storefronts and bus stops, hammered out the windows of a limousine and eventually launched rocks at a phalanx of police lined up in an eastbound crosswalk. Officers responded by launching smoke and flash-bang devices, which could be heard from blocks away, into the street to disperse the crowds.
“Pepper spray and other control devices were used to control the criminal actors and protect persons and property,” police said.

The Trump DOJ fabricated and withheld evidence in an attempt to jail 200 protesters (and some journalists) for the crime of protesting Trump's inauguration.
It doesn't get much more weaponized than that.
a reply to: TheRedneckWhat? so you are saying you support the people that attacked the capitol? If you do, just say so.
That's what this is all about: get normal people, people who pose no danger to society but who oppose the present overthrow of the US, all upset. Push them to the breaking point. Then, when they do break down and fight back against oppression, paint them as the oppressors and act all innocent and helpless. It's insidious, wrong, and downright evil.
And it works.
Thank you! Great example of what I was talking about!
I see you...
