On Monday night, a U-Haul truck driver attempted to ram through a White House security fence. After the collision close to the White House, police detectives removed what appeared to be a Nazi banner from a U-Haul truck.
According to eyewitnesses, the truck struck a barrier twice before coming to a stop. The event happened at 16th and H St, NW, on the north side of Lafayette Park. The flag was spread out by police near the truck so that the media could photograph it before it was folded and taken away.
Internet users came under suspicion right away. They just discovered a Nazi flag in the vehicle, right? The FBI’s and Joe Biden’s version of the terrible white supremacist menace in America found this to be far too handy. It had a similar odor to another fed facility.
I was waking up and thinking we are due for a Good False Flag to distract everyone.
And we get this. Someone crashed a Uhaul into the White House Barricades last night with nothing but a Nazi Flag?!?

On Tuesday, the driver was named by local news station FOX 5.
Sai Varshith Kandula – a 19-year-old man from Chesterfield, Missouri, a suburb west of St. Louis.
U.S. Park Police say Sai Varshith Kandula of Chesterfield, Missouri, was taken into custody at the scene. Kandula faces multiple charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, the threat to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm on a President, Vice President, or family, destruction of federal property, and trespassing.
Officials released his name Tuesday. No one was injured in the crash.
There are a lot of Asians and Asian Americans living in Chesterfield, Missouri.
This is Sai:

UPDATE: Sai Kandula graduated from Marquette High School in West St. Louis. He has a limited internet profile.
It’s also very important to note that Sai is NOT a US citizen.
Government prosecutors asked Judge Meriweather to order Kandula held because the crime he is accused of is one of “violence” and because he is a flight risk.
The government told the court Kandula is not a US citizen but did not specify where he is from.

The New York Post reported:
Kandula, from Missouri, slammed the box truck into barriers along Lafayette Square just steps from the White House late Monday, US Park Police officials said.
He had allegedly planned the attack for six months, with his goal to “get to the White House, seize power, and be put in charge of the nation,” records show.
Kandula was accused of threatening to “Kill the President If that’s what I have to do,” and praised Nazism and Hitler.
He was originally charged with threatening to kill, kidnap or inflict harm on a president, vice president or family member, as well as assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, trespassing and destruction of federal property, US Park Police said.
His federal charges have since been downgraded to a single count of depredation of property of the United States in excess of $1,000.
According to local St. Louis KSDK, Kandula bought his Nazi flag online because “Nazis have a great history” and he admired their “authoritarian nature, Eugenics and their one world order.”
