Storming the Capitol? 
 
Listening to some of the reporters they said while interviewing some of these people that there was a sentiment that this was not over and they would be back.
 
My question is what exactly is it you think you are accomplishing? A woman is dead, and Joe Biden is still going to be President.
 
Hell twitter has just locked Trump's account.

Roughly 4 hours to retake the very US Capitol Building itself and only 13 arrests.

 

White privilege doesn't even begin to cover it.  I've seen video of the cops removing the barricades to let them in & others taking selfies with the rioters.  100% complicit.

~50 arrests total.  There were about 3x as many arrests during the BLM protests in Cincinnati where no government buildings were stormed by a violent mob.

 

Our democracy is doomed if we allow this to continue to fester.

Why, did something happen yesterday? 

 

:ninja:

 

Yeah a youtube comments section teamed up with Duck Dynasty and a WalMart parking lot after 10pm & tried to overthrow the government.  

 

Now a bunch of people in Congress who have been openly calling for this for weeks have to go on TV and act shocked by it.

I see they're all being hit with lesser charges like trespassing, disorderly conduct, misbehaving while white..  Not unexpected, but after I learned these shitheels were involved in beating a cop to death I thought that might just maybe move the needle a bit? 

 

Gosh it's almost like all the "Blue Lives Matter" stuff was only a code for their racism & they don't care about the police at all

 

Fucking unreal.

 

Also let me add that the scariest part of all this is that a bunch of people are acting like it's over & dealt with.  This Beerbelly Putsch was just a trial run.

Just sick of all this shit.

 

Effects of Trumpism aren't going away any time soon... not when you have prominent members of congress still chasing that maga vote. 

 

Scalise, Kevin "Joe" McCarthy, Brooks, Gaetz, Jordan, Hawley - but most of all, Cruz - I guess calling for their resignations make people feel good, but they would have to have a sense of shame for that to matter - at ALL. There simply are no repercussions anymore, not for that group. Some fucking how, they keep getting elected, and keep doing whatever they want.

 

We'll see in 10 days if these nutcase followers try some more shit.

I went to the National Mall this morning (it's my place for exercise) and some of the metal barriers near the Capitol were down still, a few signs were still up, and most of the mall is fenced in.  Basically, you can't hang out on the grass on the mall for the most part, which is unusual.

Scare enough people about socialism and you can get away with implementing fascism.

Maybe not at the inauguration itself but there will definitely be more domestic terror attacks - bombings and/or mass shootings.  The minor charges they're throwing at these people will undoubtedly encourage more of the same.  I would hope it makes us better in the long run to have these white nationalist scumbags out in the open, but that's not going to happen if they can kill cops and get charged with disorderly fucking conduct.

 

Anyone still wanting to deny the existence of white privilege can suck my balls from the back.

My gut tells me nobody is gonna show up at least in DC, the rest of the country I wont be surprised.

 

If not it's because they're plotting the next move, or a more traditional terrorist approach.  This shit goes a lot deeper than some random shitheel militias. This guy is doing a great job of piecing this plot together.

I don't know what they hope to accomplish, if Biden and Harris are taken out they would have to go after President Pelosi. The fact that we won GA from what I can tell makes every single person down the line of succession a Democrat.

Biden & Harris aren't sworn in yet, with a hostage situation in the Capitol all that would've been delayed at best.  I'd assume a State of Emergency is declared and then they figure out how to send it to a complicit SC.   Besides, that line of succession could be ignored just like they've ignored so many other laws.

I wont be entirely surprised if they swear him in privately before they do so publicly so as if something actually does happen we still get President Harris

Edited because I realize I'm just repeating myself at this point.  I really hope they're waiting until Trump can't pardon the accused & actually root these treasonous fuckers out.

I'd think Soldiers always have authority to use deadly force if the threat is elevated to life or limb.

Think it's a little different when you're talking about a domestic security op, like typically they would need a specific order from command to respond to an incident.  Maybe someone with firsthand knowledge can chime in but I think giving them the go-ahead before anything happens is a pretty big deal.  

 

Guess when someone tries to beat cops to death with a "Blue Lives" flag they're not having any bullshit?  Of course I hope they have enough sense to go back in their little ratholes but I can't say removing a few more QAnon kooks from the gene pool would be any great loss.
