Idaho Jan. 6 Capitol Protest


Roughly 200 protesters demonstrated against Joe Biden’s electoral victory in front of the Idaho state Capitol in Boise on Jan. 6, 2021. The Idaho chapter of MAGA girl organized the event, and the Idaho Liberty Dogs Facebook group announced the event and encouraged people to bring flags. Attendees heard a livestream of Trump speaking in Washington, and in-person speakers included GOP state Rep. Aaron von Ehlinger and Tom Munds, an area coordinator for the reactionary John Birch Society.

In April, anti-lockdown demonstrators interrupted a session of the Idaho legislature, something analysts later described as one of several “dress rehearsals” for the storming of the U.S. capitol on Jan. 6.
