Insurrection at the Capital

I don't quite understand this image. Extreme violence was used to breech entry. (See new videos currently being offered by various media sources). However once inside, this faction of the mob seems to be orderly walking between the corded off area. Without the flags and banners, the scene somewhat resembles a "tour group." Are those capitol police casually on the left of the red ropes? Are they part of the insurrection? This is all very odd.

I don't get it either. It seems many people have been puzzling over this. I mean, were they welcomed in??

I think this was early on during the breach. The police either were complicit, overwhelmed by the numbers or both. In some of the other videos the police were really getting attacked, so I'm hopeful it was because they knew they were outnumbered.

This is what we are seeing on news reports here in Australia
The far right extremists are saying, “ Trump or war!” They will storm the capitol on inauguration day threatening to burn DC to the ground. If you don't know how to shoot. You need to learn now!
I hope the government learned their lesson on Jan 6 and are prepared for this violence on inauguration day.
The most sickening thing is that all of this hatred has been fueled by the President.
