The past week has been one of the craziest, darkest, and strange times in American politics for quite some time - and that's saying something.

Following the riots at the Capitol Building which left many dead and countless people injured, Arnold Schwarzenegger has now spoken out comparing the riots to the rise of the Nazis.

Tensions are higher than ever before.

As the plans for Biden's presidency begin to unfold, tensions amongst the pro-Trump community have escalated to worrying levels.

While it's taken weeks for the president himself to reluctantly concede to Biden...

Pro-Trumpers have been fueling the flames behind his various election fraud allegations.

And, on Wednesday, those tensions reached a breaking point.

On January 6th, during which a joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden’s election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.

Hundreds of rioters forced their way into the prestigious building...

Breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with their chants of "stop the steal!"

The rioters wasted no time in taking over several of the rooms and chambers in the building...

And photos showing them looting objects, such as the lectern of U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, quickly started circulating online.

A group of rioters even broke into Pelosi's office...

With one posing in her chair with his feet up on the desk.

From this, more violence ensued...

As rioters clashed with the few police officers in presence.

The scenes were nothing short of horrifying...

And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.

Shortly afterward, it was confirmed that there had been fatalities within the Capitol.

Chief Robert Contee III of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, confirmed the news during a press conference late last night.

It quickly emerged that one female rioter had been shot dead by police...

However, details surrounding the other 3 fatalities remain unclear. "One adult female and 2 adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies on or around Capitol grounds," Contee said, "which resulted in their deaths."

Of course, millions of people have been left completely outraged by the scenes that unfolded last night...

And many even more so by President Trump's response.

From the get-go, there were calls for Trump to intervene.

The president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down, but these calls fell on deaf ears.

He instead issued a series of tweets...

Where he simply reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was "on our side", and to "remain peaceful."

Hours after his supporters had stormed the Capitol, however, Trump finally released a video telling them:

"Go home, we love you, you’re very special."

And it didn't take long for Trump's words from his speech earlier in the day to come back and haunt him.

The president spoke at a rally in Washington shortly before the violence ensued where, according to some, he actually encouraged his supporters to storm the Capitol.

As expected, Trump addressed the "rigged election"...

Before reminding the crowd: “Just remember this: you’re stronger, you’re smarter, you’ve got more going than anybody. And they try and demean everybody having to do with us, and you’re the real people. You’re the people that built this nation. You’re not the people that tore down our nation."

He then said this:

"You have to get your people to fight. And if they don’t fight we have to primary the hell out of the ones that don’t fight... Together, we are determined to defend and preserve the government of the people, by the people, and for the people... We fight. We fight like hell."

"And if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore."

Trump had also stressed this need to "fight" a couple of days earlier when he told supporters at a Georgia rally that they were going to have to "fight like hell" in order to stop Biden from "taking this White House."

And then we got even more news.

When Trump has confirmed that he will not be attending Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony on January 20th.

He tweeted this:

"To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th." He will be only the fourth president to refuse to attend the inauguration of his successor. This is a developing story, make sure to stay posted for further updates.

Yesterday news emerged that Trump would be banned from Twitter.

The news comes just days after Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that Trump would be banned from Facebook and Instagram too.

Donald Trump Jr wasn't happy one bit.

Taking to Twitter, Trump Jr, wrote:
The world is laughing at America & Mao, Lenin, & Stalin are smiling. Big tech is able to censor the President? Free speech is dead & controlled by leftist overlords.
Huge news.

And now Trump's been banned from even more platforms.

News emerged just hours ago that Trump has been banned from Shopify and Pinterest too.

He's also been banned from numerous other sites.

Such as Twitch, Snapchat, Reddit, and even TikTok - which is pretty ironic because Trump was trying to ban the app himself.

So where can Trump get his opinions out?

Parler is an app used by many right-wing influencers, and it was thought Trump could try and get set up on there. However now Parler has been removed from the Apple store - so if he didn't download it before today, he's all out of look... Maybe MySpace?

Now, none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger has responded to the riots in DC.

And taking to Instagram, the actor turned politician had some bold statements to make - comparing the riots to the rise of the Nazis.

He shared a video to Instagram.

Schwarzenegger picked up the sword from his film Conan and used it as a metaphor to describe how the United States can triumph over the Capitol rioters who want to tear this country apart. He also referred to Kristallnacht -- The Night of Broken Glass, where the Nazis went on a horrific rampage against the Jewish people back in 1938, and he compared the Proud Boys to the Nazis.

Check it out below.

He actually makes some very interesting points.
