Do these pictures tell that ‘The Simpsons’ predicted the Capitol Hill protests?
The Simpsons at it again!
With various predictions coming true through time, looking for forecasts in past episodes of the show The Simpsons for major events has become almost a trend. The show is now back as the hot topic on social media for correctly foretelling the Capitol Hill riots! So what’s the actual deal?
The results of the 2020 Presidential Elections were ratified by the US Congress. This means that Joe Biden will take office on the 20th of January.
To oppose this, Trump supporters took to Capitol Hill and demonstrated violent protests to prevent the ratification of the election results. Violence ensued as the rioters climbed the walls of the White House, and even broke windows to enter.
The rioters were also armed with guns and Molotov cocktails.

The situation had gotten so out of hand that D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser was forced to declare a public emergency for 15 days.
I have issued Mayor’s Order 2021-003, extending the public emergency declared earlier today for a total of 15 days, until and unless provided for by further Mayoral Order.

People holding guns inside the White House was certainly a notable scene in The Simpsons.

Twitter did not stop at this, and there were tweets suggesting that the show has even made some predictions about what is about to come in January 2021.

Even though some of the predictions seem groundless, others like the ones about Capitol Hill riots are almost astonishing.
The current death toll of the riots is 4. The first casualty was a woman who was shot by a Trump supporter. Her name was Ashli Babbit, a 35-year-old Californian native and an Air Force Veteran.
