After angry pro-Trump protestors wreaked havoc inside the US Capitol Hill Building, fans of The Simpsons are convinced again about the show’s makers ability to predict the future.
In a 1996 episode, titled ‘The Day The Violence Died’, glimpses of a riot were shown with a number of characters storming the Capitol with bombs and guns after a constitutional amendment tries to ban flag burning. The scene had an uncanny resemblance with what happened on Wednesday.

Another episode from the show aired in 1999 titled ‘Beyond Blunderdome’ shows a remake of Hollywood classic ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington’ in which actor Mel Gibson’s character wreaks havoc at Capitol Hill.
Even an episode aired days ahead of the November election, had predicted some of scenes at the building and even talked about a civil war becoming reality in 2021.
Another predictive programming by the Simpsons! We live a in Truman show 😅
