As we told you yesterday, a nonscalable fence has been erected around the U.S. Capitol, where it will remain for at least a month. Here’s’ what it now looks like at the Capitol:

Apparently walls do work, but only for certain people.
New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman noted that the Capitol fence resembles another one just down the road:
Looks like the White House as of June 2020 https://t.co/zTG6Eyw1Rj

*More context needed*
Why, did something happen?

We seem to recall something.
Yes, Maggie. Those fences and barriers were erected to protect the grounds from BLM rioters who were peacefully burning and destroying stuff in the area.

Ahh June… simpler times. Back when left wing protesters charged the WH and attempted to break in only to end up burning several blocks around it. But, back then, riots weren’t only acceptable but encouraged by ranking members of Congress. https://t.co/oCboWgtI4z

And what happened exactly in June that you're still ignoring?
Oh wait, that's right, those "insurrectionists" identified as Democrats, so it was a noble and just cause and not an "insurrection" 🤷♂️ https://t.co/Z7SMO57ran
