They need to be checked for firearms and explosives

They need to be in chains

Well just because they tried to overturn a legal election and don't believe the honoree actually won doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to party and socialize.  Let's not be cruel here.

They need to be seated in the cheap seats, 3 blocks away.

Marcus Aurelius: They need to be seated in the cheap seats, 3 blocks away.


Or sit them right up front. Right in plain view of all the cameras. And schedule time during the inauguration for each one to come up and give a short talk about how Biden won the election legitimately.

Send them away at the gate for "Security concerns"
 
2021-01-18 11:51:11 AM  
COVID? No, they need to be checked for weapons.

We're at a point now where it's not implausible that one of these yahoos might want to martyr themselves to the cause by taking a shot at Biden or Harris. Seriously, at this point, no card should be taken off the table.

Why send them some place warm. There are plenty of planets we can launch them too

They should be banned from attending.
 
2021-01-18 11:53:09 AM  
Yeah, because we need Ted Cruz there to class it up.

Why send them to a planet?  The Sun is so much easier.

THIS.  Search them ALL.  Clowns like Gaetz and Graham are brainwashed and demented enough to strap on a suicide belt, let alone that Boebert psycho who belongs on an ice floe rather than in DC.

There's no way to save this without the Treasonweasel party going on a "you were lied to" tour. They can play victim if they like. There was no fraud. Nothing else will fix this other than a loooot of time.
 
2021-01-18 11:55:11 AM  
Sadat.
 
2021-01-18 11:55:14 AM  
The should be checked. But let them. No skin off our back. It will just enrage the fools they played to or make them simmer down.

Put them in the easiest sniped seats.

This. They should be specifically uninvited from attending based on their behavior.
 
2021-01-18 11:59:05 AM  
I think they should be employed as human shields for Biden & Harris.

Maybe Boebert, but Cruz, Graham, and Gaetz are all too self-serving to make themselves into a sacrifice.
 
2021-01-18 12:01:02 PM  
It's a good start down their path of complete humiliation

No. They need to go and be made very visible. Show the lunatics that even those who objected are now acknowledging the new administration.
 
2021-01-18 12:05:31 PM  
Yeah Other then just spite I see no reason not too.

Let them kneel.  Either their supporters will hate them for it or relax a bit against Biden.

Win/win
 
2021-01-18 12:06:27 PM  
I don't know who will end up showing up or what will happen on Wednesday.  Hopefully a smooth (relatively speaking) transition and oath of office.

But I've decided to go radio silent on Wednesday and maybe go for a nice long hike/snowshoe in the wilderness.  I wasn't going to get any work done anyhow because I'd be constantly distracted by the events of the day, and this way I at least won't burn a day of work by just sitting there being stressed out.

They're not doing it to acknowledge anything.  They're doing it to be attention whores at best or to stir up trouble at worst.
 
2021-01-18 12:08:49 PM  
They have made it very clear that they were just asking questions because their base were concerned about potential irregularities in the vote and that really it's all the Democrats' fault that they won't allow a full investigation that will satisfy them that the election was not stolen.

See, they aren't saying Biden is illegitimate, they just will refuse to say he is legitimate and blame him for the confusion. Unity!

Yep - I'm not worried about our run-of-the-mill GOP weasels. It's the new batch, the ones backed & approved by the crazier groups like QAnon & Three Percenters, who concern me. We keep talking about how law enforcement & military personnel may have been infiltrated, and how Biden's having to vet even the Secret farking Service because the Trump cult has run rampant throughout government, and we already know that some of these Congresspeople were sympathetic, if not actual accessories, to the attack on Congress a week and a half ago.
 
2021-01-18 12:11:55 PM  
...and my last sentence disappeared.

Assuming that Congresspeople, at this point, aren't a risk is, sadly, naive. Several Congresspeople have already publicly expressed their concerns when they basically said, "I wasn't going to go with the rest of my colleagues because I didn't feel safe around some of them." When they're worried that the person sitting across the aisle from them might, just might, decide to tip the balance of power in Congress by surreptitiously harming or killing them, it's time to take a hard look at these assholes.
 
2021-01-18 12:12:06 PM  
Let the healing begin! This should tell you all you need to know about how seriously Democrats are going to punish these people. If they can't/ wont stop them from coming to the inauguration what actual chance do they have to face real consequences.

b0rg9: Put them in the easiest sniped seats.


Right, in a special roped-off section clearly labeled "republicans here to publicly celebrate Biden's Democratic victory over trump". Be sure to give them lots of camera time. Maybe Biden can even publicly thank them for their support.

We need to make sure that the magats and q-tards know who their real enemies are, in case they'd like to have a nice up-close, in-person ENTIRELY PEACEFUL visit with them or their spouses and children.

Who keeps downvoting everything that makes the GOP look bad?
 
2021-01-18 12:23:19 PM  
Sounds like a great time to seize them and rendition them to gitmo.  If Republicans know accepting Ted Cruz back will be the price to get the others they'll be abandoned real quick

They don't need to say anything. If they are sitting there while Biden is sworn in, they will be deemed to be accepting the new administration. This either brings their followers on board with Biden's legitimacy or it sours the Qdiots on these Senators. I'm fine either way.

Maybe they'll just go down in the crossfire. Accidentally, of course.

A sitting U.S. Senator showing up armed and bypassing a historic level of security to fire a shot during the Inauguration is the very definition of "implausible."

Stop fear mongering. Some level of uneasiness for Wednesday's events is warranted, but you are absolutely fear mongering.
 
2021-01-18 12:32:35 PM  
They just need to answer one question first: Who is the duly elected President of the United States of America on January 21st?

If the answer is anything besides Joseph Biden Jr. -  Kick Them to the Curb!

Make sure the chair Cruz sits on is made from balsa wood and keep one camera trained on him as he attempts to sit down.

You know that part of celebrity roasts where the guest of honor gets to rip into the people who were just giving them shiat, and they have to just sit there and take it with a smile? That's what it should be like for them.
