Of course.  The motto is yet another lie.

Lets say for the sake of argument that he isn't responsible for starting that riot. The same stupid trash that complain that Obama didn't stop Benghazi attack 4,500+ miles away are ok with Trump failing to do anything to stop one 2 1/2 miles from the WH.

The dems need to focus impeachment less on how Trump incited the attack, and more on what he was doing while it happened. Why was Pence authorizing National Guard troops when he isn't in the chain of command? Where was the commander-in-chief?

The entire GOP is complicit in an attempted violent overthrow of our country's government.
They can STFU and go away.
Stop interviewing them

They are toxic waste.
Call your local broadcasting stations and tell them this.
Tell your elected officials on both sides and then tell the GOP it is time to fall on their swords.

They did this.
Their side of the aisle.

Do not reach over that aisle.

Shut them down.

Trump cannot be a scapegoat for the entire party that did this.

Except for everyone that said they were there for that exact reason.  It's on camera, on social media. It's what they said.

Agreed. So many are complicit...

Personal effing Responsibility party? What the hell?

Do any of you remember hearing from MAGAts needlessly hollering about 'not wanting to live in a police state?'

Here is a picture of the US capital from Friday;

The only reason those armed soldiers are there, is because of the actions of the very people that warned me against living in a police state. Those MAGAts cannot think. They refuse to do the one thing democracy requires, and as a result, they will continue to try to destroy democracy.

Call it projection, say 'every accusation is a confession,' or label it hypocrisy. It is all the same. The level of cowardice garden-variety Republicans have exhibited in recent years astounds me.

So does their hatred of democracy.

All the people that stormed the capital did it because Trump told them to. And now they want a pardon.

How can Trump pardon if he is not responsible?
 
2021-01-17 11:34:32 AM  
Their Law & Order and personal responsibility stances only apply to OTHERS, not to themselves. Duh.

To admit Trump's responsibility is to admit their own responsibility.  They gave the dynamite monkey his dynamite.

Okay, If you want to claim Trump isn't responsible, I'm pleased to hold everyone (corporate persons included) who ever donated to Trump as responsible.

The Trumpers' fears will be realized (losing access to guns, being pushed off communication platforms, marginalized and ignored in policies and decisions, losing representation) and it will be all their own damn fault because of their deplorable actions.  They will lose access to things by the government like they screamed would happen, but not because of their stance but because the danger they exhibit.

It's impossible to know who those terrorists attacking the Capital were working for. It's not like they carried flags or anything.

Isn't it sad that I look at that chart and think wow...at least  40 odd percent are not completely effed up in the head. With 10 % or less being almost not delusional and 22% being only technically delusional ( well he may have lit the flames but they marched to the capitol so it is their fault - aka only he can bear only some of the blame). But the ones that blame Biden...fruitcakes to the last percentage point. All he did was not lose and let Trump do whatever he wanted. Which would have still made them blame him for simply existing.

Also:
A majority of women (62 percent) support removal and disqualification from future office, while men are split, with 49 percent in favor and 48 percent in opposition. Each time I see a crazy Karen video, I tell myself that  a gender, they are still making better political judgments regarding Trump than American men.

That's not the article of impeachment though.  So that might be fine as a message, but push it too hard, and the R's will back out with "well, if this is what they care about, why isn't that in the articles?"

Did he have non-organic food before storming the capitol and get sick?

No, no, it makes perfect sense.  Antifa hates Trump, so they listen to Trump and storm the Capitol like he ordered to stop and overturn the confirmation on Trump's loss, who they hate and are glad that he lost.

they aren't even waiting.  the locals near me are already trying out nicknames.  Best so far they have come up with is "Plugs" because he has hair plugs, so many they could pay off the national debt.

Another dipshiat is constantly posting "Biden's body count starts on Jan 20th" in reference to covid deaths and how the media was reporting all those numbers to make Trump look bad.

See, those numbers don't represent Americans to them.

We move on without them. They, and I can't stress this enough, DON'T MATTER ANYMORE

Their choice, not ours. We offered the olive branch, they shot our arm off while blaming us.

"We did this because Trump told us to, but actually it was Antifa and Trump isn't to blame" is somehow even more dizzingly stupid than their usual nonsense.
