Why Were ‘Back-The-Blue’ Flags So Scarce on January 6th?

— Capitol siege photos/videos show few rioters with the flag!

The absence of Back The Blue flags on January 6th meant violence was planned!

The 2020 Presidential Election

GOPwinger Trump ran a violence-prone campaign to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. But 2020 saw a particularly harsh and violent campaign as Trump’s political operatives demographically targeted police and military, right wing militia groups, preacher-led Q-anon evangelists, biker and NASCAR fans and wrestling/UFC fighters into a hardcore GOPwinger coalition. Meanwhile, Trump’s corporate billionaire/millionaire golfing buddies poured in the money, and amusingly observed from the sidelines.

Trump Lost to Biden By Over Seven Million Votes

This was largely due to the states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania returning to their long-held traditional blue columns in presidential elections. Those states became anti-Clinton and went red in 2016, thus enabling Trump to become president.

Telltale Hint Violence Would Rule The Day

Indeed, there was a clear indicator violence would rule on January 6th; that violence was intended to rule in an outright effort to prevent completion of the presidential vote certification.

Very few Back The Blue flags!
