If you have any doubt that these are Trumpers... and not Republicans... this video should change that.

40min long video. I will definitely watch later. First 5 min are pretty interesting.

I skipped and started half way through.

These people are literally insane.

I'll have to watch at home as 40 minutes at work ain't flying.  But just by the thumbnail, for some reason, I find a dude in a glillie suit even stranger than Qanon Shaman dude.  Was he expecting to sneak up on the capitol building through it's extensive, dense brush?

I got as far as the Lumbee Tribe lady.

Uh... I looked it up. Your tribe's recognition (HR 1964) passed the House, and died at the hands of Mitch McConnell, lady.

And testing for COVID doesn't create more cases. I hope her elders straighten her out on that shiat.

I went in expecting to find further confirmation that these traitors were stupid, selfish, privileged, cowardly pieces of human waste.

I was not disappointed.

The ones that im finding's weird are the 55-65 year old white males who do not look like gun toting hillbillies.  The ones that look like the tail end of the Boomers.  They look like they were promised something during the Reagan years that hasn't quite panned out, and they are pissed off...they all have their fleece jackets on, and they tend to look like theyre at a football game.

Really weird.
 
2021-01-15 3:23:22 PM  
Watched the whole thing. It was good. And scary. They had to disguise themselves as OAN because Fox News was too liberal for the crowd.

Yes they're not all toothless rednecks as they first appeared. Many are middle and upper class white people, professional white collar types even.

I used to have a neighbor who was a fairly wealthy divorce lawyer and a pro tem judge in Nevada who abandoned his family to go join a militia in Montana in the '00s.

He was also a nutso Nazi memorabilia collector, so that isn't really surprising.

This isn't surprising. Revolutions -- and make no mistake, this was an attempted revolution -- are driven by people with socioeconomic status who are afraid of losing it.

I assumed that was one of the undercover reporters. If you're going to blend in with lunatics you need to look like one.

I went undercover as a Female Body Inspector.  Apparently my disguise wasn't very effective.  Neither was my map.  The Capitol Landscaping Company was deserted.

Several takeaways...

It's incredibly easy to get people to embrace you and willingly admit to crimes if you are white, male and do the minimum effort to cosplay as an OAN "reporter" (literally just a foam kinkos made mic cover, no press credentials or even fake badges). BlackKklansman showed exactly how easy it is to dupe these people and after 50 years, nothing has changed.

OAN should be considered on par with the videos released by Osama Bin Laden to incite violence and spread propaganda based on how embraced these two guys were pretending to represent them. They are literally radicalizing people on the daily. Finding a "more radical" news outlet than FOX and embracing it wholeheartedly is concerning to say the least.

There is a DEEP divide, deeper than ever, in America between these people who fervently support the "Trump Cult" and... everyone else. I know there are more layers to this but I'm also not sure at all what it's going to take to try to rectify the damage done. These people have double, triple and quadrupled down on the lies fed to them and that they parrot that literally reality DOES have a liberal bias. It's scary and disheartening.

People on the outside of the US looking in have to be dumbfounded but all this. I say that maybe not that it's surprising how stupid Americans are showing themselves to be but how far it all reaches. Some are for sure gleeful (since they helped foment how far things have gone) but also seeing the cracks that have been growing and potentially going to be very hard to repair in our democracy. That these "America First" types don't realize how they have weakened us in more ways that one and how dangerous that is is infuriating.

Next week is going to be... something.

I hope farkers stay safe and avoid being anywhere near any of the local state government buildings as well as federal. There is a Timothy McVeigh v2 out there who won't warn people in advance or set the timer for an "off hours" detonation like the guy in Nashville did. We're entering a new, scary and very real, dangerous time for America.

orezona:

I think a lot of people know they're being screwed, and know our government is terrible, but have bought in to what are mostly the wrong reasons for that. They love Trump because he ignored the Republican platform and said what Republican voters have been saying for 30ish years, at least.

/ Plus there's the racism and such.
// But that's just more misplaced blame, really.

Three minutes in and I'm hooked. This is crazy.

I sure hope some FBI folks got as good that day.

Remember, when Trump sends his supporters to the capital, he's not sending his best, he's sending thugs, criminals and rapist.

OldRod: If you have any doubt that these are Trumpers... and not Republicans... this video should change that.


Trumpers are the republican party. There was like a stat on PBS that said 80% of the party supports Trump's views. They had two republicans on discussing the party. One I think was never a real fan of Trump, and other was until Trump lost the election. They both said Trump's message is loved by most people in the party. They think in 4 years Trump was get kicked out of the party, but not his message. They think someone else will takeover his message, and keep it going. Which is scary.

You know what I love about how they dubbed their movement, "Stop the Steal!"

They are claiming that the election was stolen from them.  But all evidence shows that nothing of the sort happened.  So they are going to overturn the election.  They are trying to steal it.  Literally.

The level of hypocrisy is only slightly overshadowed by the sheer inane stupidity of the whole thing.

Bullshiat. I have yet to see any one of these motherfarkers explain in even the slightest detail how they themselves have been screwed and/or how the government has treated them terribly. None of them have been beaten down by cops, denied jobs, run into the poorhouse, they haven't even gotten a goddam hangnail from the government.

Taxes? fark you, pay your taxes. I pay mine. Want to argue about how taxes are assessed and used, okay, but you don't need to farking burn down Congress.

Gays/Blacks/Womens? fark you, don't treat people like shiat. We all have human rights. Want to argue that some categories of people aren't human? Your problem is not with government, your problem is existential. I suggest you solve your existence.

Et cetera.
