THERE were a “small number of recent online threats of violence” connected to the “Justice for J6” rally outside the US Capitol on Saturday, the Department of Homeland Security warned Thursday.
“We are aware of a small number of recent online threats of violence referencing the planned rally, including online discussions encouraging violence the day before the rally,” it said.
The Justice for J6 rally will allegedly protest the “inhumane” treatment of January 6 Capitol rioters.
The main event is set to be held in Washington DC on September 18.
Look Ahead America, the group organizing the rally, is also holding events at 13 other state capitols on the same day.
