30. I doubt any of these rioters are or were well enough

read to be copying history. They all have ideas about what is "cool" or "scary" or "tough looking".

I do agree with SheltieLover that the mob consisted of different groups. John Scott-Railton, the Toronto researcher was on MSNBC and described 3 different groups: real terrorists who came equipped for battle, wanna-bes (probably the people in costume) and riot tourists (for lack of a better word), people who just went along to watch or be part of the crowd.

A guest on MSNBC last night made a really good point that the white supremacists/neo-nazis used Trump to advance their own goals more than he used them.
