Violent protesters MASKED!!!??? at the Inauguration! False Flag?

Donald Trump inauguration protests: Violence breaks out as protesters smash windows and clash with p

Source: The Independent

Disorder has broken out in Washington DC amid tight security ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration.

A group of masked protesters, some carrying flags bearing the anarchist symbol, were filmed smashing windows, running through the streets and clashing with police.

One man dressed in black smashed the window of a McDonald's with a hammer, while others tipped over bins around an hour before the start of Mr Trump's ceremony.


Police responded with tear gas, pepper spray, stun grenades and water cannon to disperse the protesters, who fled away from lines of officers.

Several people were arrested, including a reporter covering the protests for Russia Today, who had been broadcasting live from within a crowd of protesters.

Absolutely false flag operation


Running away instead of standing for arrest

Unprovoked violence

Reporter on the scene ready to record violence.


there was no identifiable group or organization leading the so-called protest

smells too much like a false flag operation...


we know that that similar scams were broken up before the inauguration ...

the same group that was responsible for violence in Portland. Their standard MO is to attach themselves to legitimate and otherwise peaceful protests.

.....there hasn't been a single report of violence of any kind.

Yesterday's "violence" was a setup.
