Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers called a special session of the state legislature Wednesday to overturn the state’s 173-year-old abortion ban. As expected, though, Republicans gaveled in and then gaveled out. Plenty of protesters occupied the Capitol, though. We’d learned from the January 6 trials that parading in a Capitol building is against the law, but maybe that only counts for the one in Washington, D.C.

I will always relive this day in horror. 6/22 is way worse than 1/6

An actual insurrection is taking place but it's the wrong side of the narrative so it's okay.

Democracy is over, I'll never forget this day, I'm so scared.

Looks like obstruction of a legislature. I'm told this is an insurrection.

This looks like an obstruction of an official proceeding and disorderly conduct. Insurrection and seditious conspiracy can also be applied, because why not.

Oh look, an insurrection, but one of the OK kinds.

I take it this happened during daytime hours where work could be disrupted. I understand that to be a requirement to the whole insurrection thing.

The worst thing to happen in America since 9/11.

This is worse than 9/11

When do they get rounded up and thrown in the slammer for a year?

Hmmm…looks awfully "insurrectionish." Did the guards let them inside by opening the doors? 🤡
— Angry Independent (@angryindependnt) June 22, 2022
We don’t see any attempt by law enforcement to get them out.
