Sen. Jon Ossoff was sworn in to Congress on Wednesday using a Hebrew Bible. Rothschild was a civil rights activist and close friend to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. As Ossoff was sworn in, he clutched the Hebrew Bible that once belonged to Rabbi Jacob Rothschild, the former leader of Atlanta's Hebrew Benevolent Congregation Temple. The Temple is Atlanta's oldest synagogue, and it is where Rothschild is credited with encouraging his Jewish congregation to support the civil rights movement in the 1950s. "It's also about the necessity of reanimating the spirit of the civil rights movement and building alliances to pass landmark civil rights legislation," he said.

There are loud echoes between those who joined the massive resistance and the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol. The failure to fully stamp out the so-called massive resistance is contributing to the insurrection we see today. Some white supremacists ended up paying a considerable price for their crimes in the civil rights era, albeit decades after the fact. Members of the Southern bloc react as a civil rights plank is adopted during the Democratic National Convention in July 1948. The forces of massive resistance that entered the Republican Party's bloodstream after the 1960s need to be uprooted.

Neumann said that the military and law enforcement agencies have long known that active-duty recruitment by the far right was an issue but that they have done little to address it. "There's no doubt in my mind that we have a problem of white supremacy and extremism in law enforcement and the military," she said. Congressional efforts to investigate members of the military and law enforcement agencies in the past, however, have largely been stymied. The military and law enforcement agencies were considered a dangerous third rail. Law enforcement at issuePolice departments across the country are investigating their own members' involvement in the Capitol riot.

Militiamen showed up proudly bearing the emblems of their groups — American flags with the stars replaced by the Roman numeral III, patches that read “Oath Keepers.” Alt-right types wore Pepe the Frog masks, and QAnon adherents could be seen in T-shirts urging people to “Trust the Plan.” White supremacists brought their variant of the Crusader cross. And then there were thousands of Trump supporters with MAGA gear — flags, hats, T-shirts, thermoses, socks. One flag portrayed President Trump as Rambo; another featured him riding a Tyrannosaurus rex and carrying the kind of rocket-propelled grenade launcher seen on the streets of Mogadishu or Kandahar. The iconography of the American far right was on display on Jan 6. during the violence at the Capitol. The absurdity of many images — the patches that read “Zombie Outbreak Response Team," for instance — only masked a devotion that inspired hundreds from the crowd to mount a deadly attack on Congress.

After the violent pro-Trump mob that included white supremacists attacked the Capitol last week, Black and brown people had to clean up the mess. It was "degrading," one Black employee said, days after the riots. "If it was black people, we never would have made it, but I think we know better not to attack the Capitol," a 28-year veteran of the Capitol told Insider. "We're all Black in our labor shop," he told Insider in the basement level of the House hallways shortly after getting his lunch. "I was all by myself," he told Insider as he pushed a cart of cleaning materials.

ET Capitol Riot Live Updates: Trump Urges No Violence or Vandalism at Planned Demonstrations The fallout from last week’s attack on the Capitol continued as the Army secretary announced that the inauguration would be secured by armed National Guard members. “In lights of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Mr. Trump said. For President Trump, the past week has included a flurry of rebukes from businesses and once-loyal politicians. A majority of House members vote to impeach. Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City is ending its contracts with the Trump Organization after the deadly riot incited by President Trump at the U.S. Capitol.

White supremacists overthrew a government that had been elected through an alliance that included African-Americans and white progressives. As was the case at the Capitol on Wednesday, the Wilmington mob was especially keen to silence journalists who had resisted the rising tide of racism. White supremacists eventually took control of the state, bringing down the curtain on Black political participation. Large and small, these violent assaults on Black self-determination continued into the 20th century. Perhaps the most pointed example of such an assault was the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 in Oklahoma.

The plan was part of an effort to assemble a White supremacist group that would be "operational" by 2024 but that would act sooner if President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election. They also allegedly shared recommended reading on white supremacist literature, required a "uniform" to symbolize their commitment and talked about making weapons. The affidavit says the Ohio teen put Nazi flags in his room, but his mother told him to take them down. One man from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, allegedly told the Ohio teen: "I can say with absolute certainty that I will die for this effort. Agents found Nazi and white supremacist images on his phone.

New York (CNN Business) A meeting President Donald Trump held to discuss overturning the election result alarmed some White House staffers -- people who are used to Trump's inflammatory and anti-democratic rhetoric. But a heated Oval Office meeting Friday in which Trump heard arguments about invoking martial law to stay in office had some Trump officials sounding the alarm to the press. Nevertheless, even the mention of martial law may fan the flames of many supporters clinging to the belief the election result was fraudulent. "In the conspiratorial conservative base of supporting Trump, there are calls for using the Insurrection Act to declare martial law," said Elizabeth Neumann, former assistant secretary of Homeland Security under President Trump and adviser at Defending Democracy Together, on CNN's "Reliable Sources." It's a concept she calls "acceleration," in which violent extremist groups, especially White supremacists, try to overthrow of the United States government.
