This will be fun. After four years of "law and order" which consisted of restricting real investigations and wasting time on imaginary crap, it's going to be nice to see the scum locked up.

FTFA: "DDos-Guard has ties to the Russian government and hosts the websites of other far-right extremist groups, as well as the terrorist group Hamas."

Who said Trump was bad for our international alliances? First, he brokered peace between Israel and countries it had never been on bad terms with, and now American companies that support him are sharing servers in Russia with Hamas.

/I hope they fry.

I am sure some of it took place on Parler as well.

Your argument is like the one I hear "No one arrested for the riots was on parler."

Which is the most oxymoronic statement/argument in the last 1000 years.

Why?

Because there are 50 terrabytes of farking videos uploaded to Parler showing them marching on and breaking into the capitol while narrating what they were doing.

Being in the group that isn't quit sure while people storming the capitol weren't discouraged with live rounds,

Does anyone else think the media and many leaders are going over the top with the language. "Seige" "Insurrection" "Coup", overall it was a bunch of idiots that ran through the place, in an uncontrolled mob, but realistically they were not trying to take over the govt, were any of them found with weapons?  It just seems like hyperbole at this point.

Again huge national security risk, safety of our leadership and it wasn't known what the intent was, as to why they were not shot i dont understand.

I guess you haven't been keeping up on the news. Communications have come out where they were hunting for pence and others. There was pre-planning by some the days before who either took advantage of the situation or instigated the mob to attack.

It was a violent attempt to overthrow the lawfully elected government, so the shoe fits. The fact that it was stupid and half-assed doesn't change that.

In fairness, Parler was just a completely unmoderated space designed to prioritize never banning or suspending anyone over every other priority, even if it turns out it was intentionally created to be such by Russian intelligence assets specifically that's still more of a failure of government in its duty to regulate than on the service's owners.

Unless the owners were also directly part of terrorist-act-planning as well, which I guess is fully possible.

Ok, how exactly were they going to overthrow the government?

disrupt the government maybe but this is that hyperbole I am talking about, they were not going to overthrow the government.

I'll admit I gave up on the news till the inaguaration, but I had not heard of any of them being armed, most either left after the initial rush and others were easily arrested and ushered out, one of the articles estimated it to be like 300 people in the capitol total.

I just can only imagine if that had been the protests storming the white house it would have been guns blazing in defense.

I have not, I am catching up now, what would have been then benefit of harming pence?  They think someone else wouldn't certify the election?

The point would have been to punish Pence for not obeying the god-emperor.

To me, "robust" is something you do with a toolbox on Space Station 13. It also describes the interactions between one player's toolbox and another player's head.

You have fallen for the "it didn't work, and they are kind of ridiculous, so we don't have to treat it seriously" fallacy that trump apologists use to not hold him or his followers accountable.

Fact: a bunch of people, several armed, broke into the Capitol while vote certification was happening, hoping to stop the certification.

That's called insurrection, and it is being labeled as such by the people in charge. It doesn't matter how stupid and gullible the rednecks were, the reason it wasn't worse was because they didn't get a hold of the Congress people or Vice President.

Your comments really make me mad, it is sickening to hear you say how it's not a big deal and admit you didn't research it at all before coming up with uninformed opinions about how it's all just "hyperbole."

WillofJ2: Ok, how exactly were they going to overthrow the government?


Some number of them clearly were looking for key congresspeople. There were threads on Parler and the various Donald websites that literally described confining (or killing) congresspeople who voted to certify the election for Biden. The fact that this wouldn't gran constitutional legitimacy to Trump's presidency or that there was a "step 3: ????" doesn't mean some of them didn't have a plan.

That's also immaterial, because...

WillofJ2: disrupt the government maybe but this is that hyperbole I am talking about, they were not going to overthrow the government.


Yes, they were. Trump lost the election. On January 20th, Biden was going to be innaururated. They engaged in violence to prevent the winner of an election from assuming office and keeping the loser in power. That is an attempt to replace the constitutionally elected president with one who did not win the election. That constitutes an attempt to overthrow the government. I don't know how to make it any clearer.

WillofJ2: most either left after the initial rush and others were easily arrested and ushered out


Again, the fact that it was half-assed or that 90% of them didn't really ever think they'd get that far doesn't make it not an an attempt to over throw the government. They were attempting to keep the loser of an election in power using violence.

WillofJ2: I just can only imagine if that had been the protests storming the white house it would have been guns blazing in defense.


Read up on successful coups: Does the fact the soldiers/police don't open fire on the mob make it not a coup? Any number of reasons might be in play: Fear if the mob, not wanting to kill large numbers of unarmed yahoos, or even sympathy for their cause. The fact remains, the mob used violence to try to keep a the loser of an election in power and prevent the constitutionally-selected winner from taking office. There was inside help. That makes it an insurrection/coup attempt.

The committee also requested that the bureau probe the company and its owners' ties to the Russian government.

Rebekah, I hope they probe your ass so deep, they find your tonsils.

I never once said it shouldn't be taken seriously or it wasn't a big deal, I am shocked they were not repelled with bullets. It was a huge national security risk.  I quit watching because I didn't need to see Buffalo guy over and over again and the news talking about antifa and trump.

I offered an opinion, I was interested in others opinions on the topic, I am sorry mine upset you
You research every topic completely before you post?

This is the only thing I have ever found about weapons involved from the mob. if you ignore the headline, they didn't arrest anyone in the capital building with a weapon
