Incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has singled out the protesters who breached the Capitol Building last Wednesday for sanctions.
Schumer called for anyone who is identified as having participated in the mayhem inside the Capitol Building January 6, 2021, to be placed on a “no-fly list.”
“Any of those who were inside the Capitol should not be able to fly and should be placed on the no-fly list. We are calling on the authorities – FBI, [Transportation Security Administration], Department of Homeland Security – to put them on the no-fly list immediately,” Schumer said in a video tweeted Tuesday.
In a letter to his Democrat Caucus, Schumer also said he would sanction Senate investigations into the various extremist groups responsible for the attack on the Capitol.
“Incoming-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman [Dick] Durbin and I have already announced that the committee, as one of its first acts under Democratic control, will closely examine the rise of violent extremist groups, white supremacists and violent fringe conspiracy theorists who are intent on undermining and overthrowing the government as we saw at the Capitol on January 6th,” Schumer wrote.
Schumer’s singling out of the Capitol Building event and his ignoring of the violence death, and destruction that took place for the better part of a year in Portland, Seattle, New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Los Angeles, and a plethora of urban locations around the country, illustrate the elitism that has now attained power in the Pelosi-Schumer controlled Congress and the Biden administration.
Democrats at the federal level, as well as the more culpable Democrat and Progressive governors and mayors of the ravaged cities spent an insane amount of political capital defending the protesters who wreaked havoc in their cities with many refusing to enforce laws to keep their citizens safe.
In Portland and Seattle, CHOP or CHAZ zones emerged where violent insurrectionists declared independence from the United States, yet Schumer didn’t call for investigations into the anarchist groups and special interest organizations that executed those seditious moves.

Schumer concluded his letter stating he will “make sure that the events are fully investigated, and every necessary security measure is in place for the upcoming Inauguration and the days leading up to it.”
