March 4 Passes Uneventfully Despite Myriad Warnings Of Nefarious Plans To Attack The Capitol

Regardless of a constant stream of alerts that extremists would attack the U.S. Capitol on March 4, it turned out to be an ordinary, peaceful day and no attacks were carried out in Washington, D.C.

March 4 was probably the most popular date recently, as it was linked to numerous allegations.

Fortunately, the day came and went just like any other, even though some people believed that former President Donald Trump would return to power that day.

The day seemed significant to some because it was the nation’s inauguration date for most of its first century as a nation.

Following the breaking of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Jan.6, many researchers claim that there could be possible trouble brewing that would end up in yet another attack on the Capitol — and many people took the alerts very seriously.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives even canceled its session in the middle of alleged threats against the Capitol. The streets were closed. The Capitol was surrounded by thousands of National Guardsmen for protection. Even the Capitol Police on Wednesday warned that an unnamed militant group has plans to attack on Thursday. In a statement obtained by the New York Times, the force said:

“We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4. We are taking the intelligence seriously.”

Information, which was provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security, as CNN reported, warned of “increased chatter among extremists,” including members of the Three Percenters, and which purportedly “discussed possible plots against the Capitol on March 4.”

“The Capitol grounds remained quiet behind black metal fences guarded by heavily armed troops,” it was reported on Tuesday by the Washington Post.

“The apparent quiescence was matched online, where some pro-Trump forums that had fomented and celebrated the Jan. 6 attack dismissed the idea of a March 4 repeat as a ridiculous confection — ‘fake news,’ or worse, a trap to ensnare activists who so far have escaped arrest.”

The outlet cited a social media user on — a site, the Post reports, that was claimed to play a “central role in planning ahead of the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol.”

“No one is doing anything today. This is a lie the government created to make YOU the bad guy” – the user wrote.

“QAnon-boosting groups on the Telegram chat app have in recent days shared messages saying that anyone going to the Capitol on Thursday ‘IS A LEFTY TERRORIST,” the outlet wrote. “That confusion has been made worse by the disappearance of QAnon’s unnamed prophet, Q. The anonymous figure, who claimed to have a top-secret government clearance and intelligence on Trump’s covert ploys, has not posted online in 86 days.”

A post on Thursday morning on a QAnon message board named for the “Great Awakening” added, “Q HAS TOLD US MARCH 4 IS A TRAP (THEREFORE ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS IS NOT US!!).”

The New York Times said that another social media user added on Telegram: “March 4 is the media’s baby. Nothing will happen.”

The executive director of SITE Intelligence Group, Rita Katz, did not expect forthcoming disaster as some entities in the Capitol itself:

“I understand why Congress would want to be cautious, but whatever threat was presented by this conspiracy theory for March 4 wasn’t anywhere near the level for January 6. Some from QAnon, militia groups, and far-right circles have even advised going to D.C.”

The vice president for content moderation for the Coalition for a Safer Web, Eric Feinberg, said: “Without Trump, there’s no leader here. This thing, it’s a joke.”

Joel Finkelstein, the co-founder of the Network Contagion Research Institute, stated that people were “overreacting” and added that extremists may have “embraced their power to disrupt ordinary events in Washington” by merely voicing threats in public online forums and on message boards.

“They’re going to get us chasing our tails everywhere,” Finkelstein said. “It’s going to make us more vulnerable.”
