Found a link to this video on an RT article uploaded on June 1st (https://web.archive.org/web/20200601001 ... ers-rally/) but obviously the video is set to private and archive.org gives me the following for whatever reason:

I found this upload which is from the same channel, but it has a different title. https://youtu.be/N1Z7Wp5hZR0

Damn, also forgot about this –

I haven't really thought about this since it first happened - between being at a remove from it geographically and just being utterly confused, it was easy to put it out of mind.

Also, if this did indeed happen, it definitely throws 1/6 in a different light. One, a media spectacle; the other a media blackout.

yep. and it's pretty obvious why, seeing as the former was an attempted far-right takeover/power grab
he/him. Read Losurdo.

1/6 was only an attempted far-right takeover/power grab in the sense that the Democratic Party is not the center-left party it pretends to be (and in that sense, it was a successful operation, too).

If there actually was a massacre in DC that's been covered up, that also gives the lie to the people who say that the Floyd protests were all one big manufactured Gladio operation PSYOP because if that were the case, then the massacre would have been broadcast loud and clear over the media and Trump would have staged his "coup" then, not on 1/6. Instead, the manufactured event was 1/6 and as long as we're doubting official histories, maybe the cops who died by suicide post-1/6 were actually killed on May 31, 2020 (much like the U.S. soldier deaths that were attributed to training incidents in early 2020 that many speculated were actually from the Iranian rocket attack on the U.S. base in Iraq).

Very good point 🤔 Hmmm. Or it could be removing informants and other assets who were deemed a liability for the 1/6 op. Either is plausible, considering we're dealing with the US. I know that the US is busy laundering casualties, with their aircraft carrier crew members "committing suicide" when in reality they died fighting in Ukraine.
