Right wing streamer confirmed as Capitol rioter after deleted footage surfaces
Los Angeles based right wing live-streamer and union dolly grip Christopher Brow (who goes by WYSIWYG TV on social media) participated in the January 6th DC insurrection/Capitol riot. Brow is a regular provocateur in the Los Angeles protest scene. He is known to follow around Black Lives Matter protests and harass demonstrators. He has admitted on multiple occasions that he attempts to bait leftist activists into physically engaging with him so that they’ll be arrested for assault.
He also admits to being a supporter of the white supremacist group known as the Proud Boys (designated as domestic terrorists by Canada). He often joins far right extremist rallies in Los Angeles, as well.
A member of the IATSE Local 80 film union, Brow works professionally in the film industry as a dolly grip. According to IMDB, he has worked on major Hollywood productions such as Spider-Man, Castle, and Grey's Anatomy.
On January 6th, Brow was on the ground at the Capitol live-streaming, but he eventually deleted the videos on all platforms. He hid unseen evidence of assaults on police officers, breaches of the U.S. Capitol, and his own trespassing.
I have obtained his deleted footage and I'm releasing it.
The barriers come down
Let’s walk through some of the most severe moments in this newly uncovered January 6th footage.
The Proud Boys charge in and lead the efforts to breach the Capitol fences and overrun the first line of defense at the U.S. Capitol.
Christopher Brow: "This is what being an American is about!"After filming the opening assault on police and barricade rush, Brow moves forward & goes beyond restricted fences, trespassing on the lawn of the US Capitol. At 1:25 he falsely claims that nobody in the crowd is armed.
Moving up to the steps of the Capitol
Insurrectionists advance beyond the lawn and approach the steps to the U.S. Capitol, which is completely under siege at this point.
Christopher Brow moves up in front of the steps of the Capitol as the insurrectionists take combative positions against the police and climb the scaffolding. More barricades come down.’
Christopher Brow: "They started to come through the barrier and everybody went. I had to kinda fight my way..." Brow stands with Proud Boys, including Portland-based Eddie Block (Brow and Block met before reaching the Capitol). Proud Boys yell "TRAITORS!" at police & the stream temporarily cuts.
Pro-Trump insurrectionists attack police
Here we see assaults against police, even a metal barrier being thrown directly into a crowd of officers. Police respond with mace and batons, but are unable to contain the mob.
The violence intensifies. Police use mace and Proud Boys, along with other insurrectionists, throw barricades and projectiles at police. Insurrectionists yell "whose side are you on?!" This is one of Capitol police's most vital defensive lines being breached and Christopher Brow is there.
Christopher Brow moves to the other side and films insurrectionists/Capitol rioters climbing the wall to the Capitol.
“We just took the Capitol!”
Insurrectionists, now fully understanding their dizzying numbers, celebrate overrunning the defenses of the U.S. Capitol.
Christopher Brow stops to talk to two far right militants who are recovering from tear gas or pepper spray. Brow tells them "this is the most amazing thing I've seen!" When Brow leaves them, he walks towards the entrance and says "I'm going to the Capitol!"
Brow moves towards the building and sees some cops that don't push back. He gets within yards of the Capitol itself. At 1:25 Brow says, "I had no idea I was live! I thought I was just recording." Soon his live-stream cuts, implying he purposely didn't stream certain points.
The storming of inside the Capitol begins
The attackers break windows and doorways and enter inside of the U.S. Capitol, even as members of congress are still inside.
This is the closest we see Christopher Brow get to breaching inside of the Capitol. It's unclear if he intended on streaming this part. These are the doors and windows that are breached by Capitol rioters and DC insurrectionists. The stream freezes and abruptly cuts yet again.
Christopher Brow at 1:23: "We all know what's going on here, right? I'm heading towards the White House. It is a civil war. "He prepares to leave and complains about a news report that the Capitol is on lockdown as an insurrectionist yells at police that they'll be back in force.
“It is a civil war.”
As things escalate, he decides to fall back and speaks about how proud he is to have participated in the attack. He celebrates the fact that the National Guard request was rejected.
Christopher Brow exits and speaks to the camera & celebrates the National Guard request being rejected. Additional quotes:
"They can't lock us all up." "Who knew, that when we went to a Trump rally... I guess we kinda knew." "It was one of the most amazing things to be a part of."
Proud Boys meet before the attack
Before the attack even began, Brow walks in on what appears to be a meeting of Proud Boys. Brow exchanges some words with a friend of his, Fresno-based Proud Boy member Eddie Block.
Here is Christopher Brow meeting with Fresno-based Proud Boy Eddie Block. Brow is near a meeting of other Proud Boys BEFORE the Capitol riot/DC insurrection began, suggesting he has direct ties to the Proud Boys that specifically started the attack on the Capitol. During this meeting, Brow also coordinated with Patriot Prayer member and domestic abuser Quincy Anatello AKA Quincy Franklin. Brow met with Proud Boys 30 minutes before the attack began, then accidentally recorded himself telling Quincy where to meet the Proud Boys.
The fact that he has admitted to coordinating with Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer conclusively proves that Brow was participating in the Capitol riot and was not acting as press. In leaked audio, Brow also admits that he supports the Proud Boys.
“I had met up with the Proud Boys.” “I don’t have anything against the Proud Boys.”
I’ve created a download link to all of the deleted live-stream. I encourage researchers and concerned citizens to review the footage for themselves. As of October 21, 2021, Christopher Brow has not been summoned for any official investigation. His friend Eddie Block (seen in the above videos) told viewers that he has been summoned by the United States Senate January 6th Committee. Considering Block and Brow’s close ties to each other and the Proud Boys, it will be interesting to see whether or not Christopher Brow shows up in these ongoing investigations as a person of interest. No matter which way you cut it, here’s what we know:
Christopher Brow trespassed on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
Brow met with Proud Boys and Eddie Block on the ground moments before the attack itself began
Brow admitted to participating in the insurrection and does not claim to be merely documenting during the duration of his livestream
Brow deleted this livestream, seemingly in an attempt to hide his own participation in the attack, as well as hiding his incriminating videos of insurrectionists assaulting police.
Brow is an admitted friend to Proud Boy affiliate Eddie Block, who was raided by the FBI and will allegedly be interviewed by the January 6th Committee.
These five points suggest that Christopher Brow can easily find himself the subject of a federal or congressional investigations for his proven and admitted role in the January 6th Capitol riot and DC insurrection.
We’ll see what happens next.
