So Republicans have officially left our collective reality. OK then.

This is about six weeks past the point where the Democrats should have publicly said, "You know what?  These people are dangerous lunatics.  And we're not going to deal with them anymore.  They can resign, or they can be recalled, but we're not going to consider this specific bunch legitimate politicians.  We're not taking them seriously as spokespeople, or as legislators, or you name it.  Their claims and complaints will be discounted as nonsense."

Honestly if the Democrats had the low cunning and wherewithal to pull something that large and secret off, most of the Q folks would have disappeared quietly without a trace.

Are they really sure that that is the comparison they want? It doesn't seem all that thought out.

At least 2021 is funnier than 2020... Watching liberal state GOPs self destruct is hilarious (I'm looking at you Hawaii)...


I'm trying not to think about the bigger picture because that is less hilarious.

Jesus they are farking nuts. Truly terrifying. This is not some damn mouthy wing nut, this the party itself.

At least they are giving lots of evidence to any other would-be terrorists that they will betray them and paint them as the real enemy if they take action.

It's pronounced OregUn.  Not OregOn.  Think gun like bang bang, not gone like a thing that is gone.  thank you

Some people are still keen to make a civil war out of this, it seems.

Let's see if it pays off for them.

I love the fact that Republicans refuse to accept that they wanted this, that they have spent decades lying to their base about the libs and dems, and when they finally get what they wanted, an insurrection, its all...umm, yeah...that wasn't us.

Fark these lying disingenuous pricks.

They refuse to accept that they failed.

If they had succeeded they would have had gangs going door to door killing "intellectuals" and people of "insufficient loyalty" like the Khmer Rouge.

In other news, we've got a shiatload of video and social media evidence proving all these "conservatives" were secretly antifa all along.

"Went".

The correct tense for that verb is, "went".

Years and years ago.

Yeah, I know that "opposed" doesn't actually mean "thinks it was a false flag." It's just a snarky meme.

Not too long ago the Oregon GOP used to be pretty liberal compared to most conservatives. They gave that up around 2000. Now its more of a look at how the rest of the GOP in most states are gonna end up.
Outside of the cities on the I-5 corridor, the state is pretty red. But we have 2 Democrats in the Senate and 4 of the five congressmen are Democrats.
That's not Florida.

"The record shows that President Trump in no way incited the violence which actually started 20 minutes before the President finished his remarks far from the Capitol Building itself."

No True Scotsman would have left before The President had finished his jibber jabber.

Watching the GOP implode is hilarious.
Corporate America cut off their funding thanks to January 6.
The crazier they get the more funding that will be cut off.
So keep f*cking that crazy chicken.

For the past week, Fox News has headlines describing Seattle and Portland as the "West" with coverage of immigration protests clashing with police and absent any description of the number of people involved.

Jim Jordan's all up in it.

Because an insurrection and coup is not the "real" story any more; it's what mainstream media "ignores"-- Fox ran an opinion piece for about two days that all journalism is yellow journalism now as it sources as many phone videos of a police line clash as possible.

Murdoch loves to feed a horror fetish with older, middle and upper-middle whites that they just might see the end of the world before they go.

It would be nice if there were some rural areas in the US where the majority of folks aren't batshiat insane. It's like all of the rednecks woke up pissed off as hell after the gubmint cut off access to their prescription opioids.

Funny that the side who did the insurrection is more "unaware" than any other category. Convenient morons.

I haven't lived there in a while, but rural Vermont used to have a whole lot of non-crazies.  And the crazies it did have tended to be the "hippie burnouts still looking for UFOs" type.

MacWizard: thealgorerhythm: See what decriminalizing all the drugs does

Actually a number of the militia guys involved with the insurrection had priors for violent drug crimes.

I'm all for decriminalization and community rehab for abusers. But there's a definite overlap between some right wing narcotic subculture and what went down on January 6.

Hitler built his Brownshirts out of people like that. They funded their early violence with bootleg cigarette sales.

I like the part where impeaching the outgoing president a few days before he is going to leave office anyway, somehow gives Democrats complete authoritarian control of the entire federal government.

Did you hear that Biden? You now have COMPLETE UNILATERAL CONTROL!!! Use it for good, please!

I suppose that if you already believe that there is a cabal of cannibalistic pedophiles (that includes Chief Justice John Roberts) who run the country then it's not too much of a stretch to believe that they would instigate the storming of the capitol for the purpose of making the GOP look bad.

I'm sure Republicans would point out that the Khmer Rouge were nominally Communist, as if brutal dictatorships are any better when they lean more towards capitalism.
