The Justice for J6 rally characterized as a “setup” by former President Donald Trump occurred without incident on Saturday.
That’s because most of the rally attendees in Washington, D.C. weren’t Trump supporters, but undercover FBI agents posing as them.

The event was so overwhelmed with police presence and sparsely attended by real patriots wise to the fact that it was a “set up” as phrased by Trump, that the FBI undercover agents stuck out like a sore thumb.
Members of the media hoping to capture some astroturfed political violence were also present at the rally.

“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said about the rally on Thursday. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”
Authorities say the rally drew about 450 people and ended without incident save for two arrests.

In fact, one of those arrests happened when the feds mistakenly detained a fellow undercover agent spotted carrying a firearm.
Earlier at "Justice for J6" defendants rally:
Police surround masked man reportedly armed with a firearm.
He tells them where the gun is, and they pull out his badge.
He's undercover law enforcement.
Without disarming or handcuffing him, police extract him from the event. pic.twitter.com/F1n4PeuXkt

Interesting. The man who Capitol Police said was arrested with a gun around 1:30PM today… Our video appears to show USCP removing a wallet from his pocket.
You can see what *looks like* a gold law enforcement badge. 9 seconds in. Asking about it now. pic.twitter.com/Z3BrQwCQAz

The FBI’s pathetic stunt to entrap Trump supporters into committing political violence was widely mocked on social media.

I hope the dozens of attendees from today’s Justice for J6 rally make it safely back to their desks at the FBI.

More people illegally entered America today than the number of protesters at the J6 Capitol rally. The MSM gave the barely attended rally WAY more coverage. Because that’s how bias works.
