Sure, Kyle Fitzsimons hated immigrants and moved to Maine a few years ago to escape "multi-cultural hell holes," but he wasn't violent, just your typical "patriotic" racist Trump supporter.
I guess that's the state of things in 2021, normalizing racists because of Trump.
And if you're wondering about the blood, Fitzsimons grabbed a police officer and was batoned, receiving six stitches for his "non-violent" protest.

Kyle Fitzsimons held racist beliefs and was vocal about his political views, but never expressed a desire to be violent toward government or the police, according to two people who provided the FBI with information about the first Maine resident charged in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.
He also told state lawmakers in 2018 that he had moved to Maine to escape “multi-cultural hell holes” and that they were doing nothing as immigrants moved to the region and were “killing off yankee New England culture,” according to a press report from the time.
Fitzsimons, 37, of Lebanon is charged with four federal crimes: knowingly entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, violent entry and disorderly conduct on U.S. Capitol grounds, assault on a federal officer and attempting to obstruct law enforcement during a civil disorder. A civil disorder can be the obstruction of any “federally protected function,” including Congress’ Jan. 6 counting of the electoral votes from November’s election, according to an FBI affidavit filed in federal court after Fitzsimons’ arrest.

Of the 21 people charged with assault for January 6, at least four cited Trump's rally in explaining their actions.
