The fallout continues. Apparently the My Pillow guy showed up with his blue print for how to stage a junta using martial law and was told by Trump lawyers to get the f out.

Jenna Ellis has been revealed to be a Christian supremacist. More fallout coming from that.

Basically it's being revealed that some of these people are motivated by bringing about the end times. They are obsessed by this suicidal devotion to death and destruction. I'm now convinced that Christianity and the other Abrahamic offshoot religions are the biggest form of emotional abuse that exists today.

The very idea that brlievers get ringside seats to revel in the burning and destruction of others is a sick idea.

The evangelicals have othered themselves into an unsustainable cul de sac. If indeed they hate others not like themselves then they hate 99% of humanity. That's not a movement. It's a cult.

The white supremacists and the Christian supremacists are motivated by desiring forced conversion, might makes right, conquest as a way to impose their will on others, ideological rigidity, an inability to share the planet with others and a longing for a yesteryear that just doesn't exist and tends to have moving goal posts. They're not sure what they really want, but by golly, YOU'RE not it.

It's a belief system that's withering and will continue to wither as the 21st century marches on.

So yeah, much of what you post falls under "this is known", and you'd have to be living under a rock -or bridge- to disagree.

The pointy end of the stick: these guys cannot be deprogrammed. They cannot be reached with logic or reason, you can't reason someone out of a position they weren't reasoned into in the first place. They are immensely politically useful idiots, backed by billionaires. They aren't dying out nearly quicky enough to allow the adults in  the room enough space to deal with the very real looming existential crises they won't even admit are real because fee fees. They are violent and easily led by their cult leaders.

They are at least 1/3 of our population, with more happy to watch the planned pogrom without interfering. They are terrorists.

There is no path to a future trying to include these people. A physical border will be required. Partition.

I wasn't saying he wasn't  brave or not deserving of praise, just saying he wasn't the one doing the crushing.

This so-called "recipe for success" for putting down insurrections just didn't work for me. We were out of flash-bangs, so I substituted tear gas, which normally is fine, but this time it just overwhelmed the overall result. My officers don't like rubber bullets, so we used bean bags instead, which was fine, but they didn't pair very well with the pepper spray. ⭐⭐

No, it's more that he didn't crush anything. The insurrection just kinda fizzled out when the occupiers realized there was a curfew and some riot gas.its more like "you got your ass kicked and the bad guys went home" instead of "I saved America"

Basically this. We are a society of hypocrites. We aren't actually against things like police brutality.... We just want a particular brand of police brutality.

Of course, this is just a cop taking a big game. He got stuck behind a door and beat up... So maybe this doesn't count.

Given the timeline we don't know that he didn't.  He stood.  That was enough in this case.  If he hadn't, we can't know for sure.  Maybe the insurrectionists caught a congress critter.  Maybe it went a whole lot worse.  Metaphorically he took a bullet for democracy, where in this case bullet=being nearly crushed to death.

No, depends on what the group wants.

One group is all about: "Stop shooting us when we're unarmed because the color of our skin isn't white."

The other one is: "Let's throw away the results of a democratic election and install our dictator because we want to create a Christian Theocracy that protects the wealthy people and allows us to shoot unarmed black people."

People laugh, but when this was all going down I didn't understand why the police weren't firing rubber rounds or bean bag rounds at these people.  I would think there is an armory in the Capitol complex that is stocked with these items.  Overall, many more of the terrorists should be at room temperature or in a hospital bed recovering from gunshot wounds courtesy of the Capitol police.

Would that have exacerbated the situation?  Difficult to tell; however, when the former Air Force woman was killed, they backed off with a quickness.  Those morons are shiat talking bullies who, once someone slaps them, quickly retreat to a safe space to cry.

Twitter comments like that are kinda funny, but I've started to shift in opinion that they play up the minute details instead of the core issues.  Another version of that guy's tweet would be "President of the United States sent easily manipulated thugs to kill Vice President on advice of religious fundamentalist businessman"

It's funny because it's "the mypillow guy", but as the top poster in here pointed out, it's a violent religious fundamentalist cult that doesn't have a specific end plan other than "convert or die".  The GOP is roughly America's version of the Taliban, and under the Tea Party and now Trump we have a splinter group that has become American Isis.  Yeah, it's been a meme because their truck parades look the same, but it's sure seeming like it's the actual reality we're stuck with too.

That's not a fair assessment.

It should either be a.) We are protesting peacefully against police brutality towards blacks and b.) We are protesting peacefully to ensure accurate and fair elections, free from fraud

Or

A.) We are violently rioting and looting because we are angry and also, could use some new stuff and B.) We are violently storming a government building because we are mad

This is false. The systemic issues are not still in effect. I can tell because Netflix has a "Black Stories" category now. It was a long road to get here, but it was worth it in the end.
