Following the attempted coup by Trump supporters on Wednesday in the Capitol, in which one person died, conspiracy theorists and right-wing figures tried to put the blame on their favorite target: Antifa.

There is no evidence that Antifa was involved in the violation of the Capitol and the associated destruction of the Senate Chamber and other parts of the building, and Trump supporters have been openly planning today’s measures for weeks. However, this has not prevented unsubstantiated claims and speculation from spreading on social media.

Pro-Trump attorney and QAnon mass-mad influencer Lin Wood sent several viral tweets falsely claiming Antifa supporters would be in the Capitol. One tweet included a photo of men he claimed were Antifa. In fact, one is a frequent MAGA world protester who passes by « Q Shaman » and another is Matthew Heimbach, a well-known white nationalist.

The guy with the horns and fur on the left has been considered by many to be Identifies Jake Angeli, a well-known QAnon promoter known as « Q Shaman ». On the right we have Matthew Heimbach, a longtime neo-Nazi and a figure in the white nationalist movement … but sure, antifa https://t.co/7tEGAfQ1ft

Juanita Broderick, a pro-Trump figure who used the former Accused of sexual assault, President Bill Clinton also tweeted a photo that featured Q Shaman with another group of men. She accused one of them of having an Antifa tattoo. In fact, the man’s tattoo shows the Outsider Mark from the video game Dishonored. The same photo and false claim were circulated by former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik.

Paul Sperry, a Conservative writer who has been the source of misleading claims in the past, tweeted that a busload of “antifa thugs” was pro Trump protesters have infiltrated. He cited an unnamed « former FBI agent » and no other evidence. Law enforcement has said nothing about outside instigators, be it Antifa or others.

BREAKING: The former FBI agent on the ground at the US Capitol just texted me confirming that at least one « busload » of Antifa Thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump protesters as part of a false Trump flag

Jokes about busloads of Antifa protesters are unfortunately widespread in the US. Sperry’s unsubstantiated tweet was later reinforced by Texas attorney general Ken Paxton.

There were also a number of false claims that police escorted Antifa members to the protests, according to Reuters. A Washington MPD spokesman told Newswire, « The Metropolitan Police Department is not acting as private security for any group. » Unfounded speculation about Antifa’s involvement took off when a curfew went into effect in DC at 5:00 pm and the mob was removed from the Capitol. Blaze TV’s Glenn Beck, pro-Trump commentator David Harris Jr., actor Kevin Sorbo, and conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec spread rumors of Antifa’s involvement. No one presented any evidence to support their claims.
