The Secret Service has reportedly made no arrests despite pro-Palestinian “protesters” vandalizing the White House’s gates over the weekend.
Only one person was arrested during the “insurrection”-like riot that beset the White House on Saturday, but that arrest was made by the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), according to Fox News.
“During the event, several minor incidents of property damage and vandalism were reported to police. One adult male was arrested for Destruction of Property in the 700 block of 17th Street, Northwest. In addition, MPD is currently investigating acts of vandalism that damaged the McPherson Square Metro Station and several police vehicles,” the MPD said in a statement.

As for the Secret Service, a spokesperson confirmed to Fox News that no arrests have been made. This despite all the damage done by the so-called “protesters.”
“Protesters could be seen vandalizing the White House fence and wrenching at the gate, and antisemitic graffiti was left on several buildings along the protesters’ path through the city,” Fox News notes.
Indeed, video and images posted to X showed the demonstrators spray-painting the White House gates red and defacing them with blood-red handprints as they came dangerously close to a breach in a scene reminiscent of the 2020 insurrection that was inspired by the death of Minneapolis criminal George Floyd.

The lack of arrests has angered critics.
“Pro-Palestine insurrectionists scale the White House fence waiving the Palestinian Flag. I’m sure they will be hunted down, thrown in gulags, and given 17-22 year sentences,” Libs of TikTok sarcastically tweeted on Sunday.
“The White House was attacked last night. Pro-Palestine supporters spray-painted the gates red, threw objects at Secret Service and tried to force open the gates. Looks like an insurrection to me!” conservative commentator Chad Prather added.

An amazing lack of tear gas and rubber bullets here. Wonder how many will be held accountable with 20+ year prison sentences?

I expect to see a “Nov 4th committee” established with the organizers all jailed without bail or hearings! Yea right…never gonna happen.

These people need to be arrested and charged. No exceptions. We are either a country of equal justice and law & order, or we are overrun by locusts. Unacceptable.

The anger stems from the disparate treatment between right-wing and left-wing rioters. Whenever right-wingers riot or even just protest — as happened during the COVID pandemic — they’re portrayed as bad and evil, and they’re arrested and thrown into jail. Conversely, whenever left-wingers riot, nothing happens — or worse.
When leftists rioted outside the White House in 2020, causing then-President Donald Trump to have to hide in a bunker, Democrats and their media allies went so far as to make Trump out to be the bad guy for ordering federal authorities to deal with the rioters. This in turn led to a big scandal rooted in NOTHING.
Moreover, when Trump tweeted out “wanted posters” of some of the “protesters” suspected of causing trouble, the media predictably attacked him.
President @realDonaldTrump is tweeting out a bunch of “wanted” posters of (mostly black/brown) people who, at most, allegedly committed (or attempted) vandalism. He’s either going to get someone hurt/killed by vigilantes or get the USPP/FBI tip lines flooded w/ bad info, or both.
