"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.

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

Let's see if it pays off for them.

EvilEgg: 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.


I don't think the suggestion was the rioters were undercover antifa. There are actual serious question surrounding the decisions made by Bowser and the House Sergeant at Arms (who reports to the legislature, not the executive) to lightening security when they knew a huge angry crowd was coming to protest that was going to include all of Trump's most insane supporters.

It seems to be a fairly consensus view that this was obviously coming so there was either some intent to set the stage for things to get of hand because the political optics would be so useful for Democrats (Bowser immediately proclaimed statehood for DC as the answer, Dems declare all conservatives terrorists, etc.) or it was complete incompetence on the part of the same folks who just happened to get a political windfall from their own stupidity.

I'm not saying that's what happened, I give incompetence a little better odds, but it's not hard to see why people think it should be investigated.

Not sure if this is what you were looking for.

thealgorerhythm: Someone Else's Alt: 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.


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.

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!

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.

I don't think the suggestion was the rioters were undercover antifa.

Of course the suggestion is that the rioters were all undercover antifa, and you know it.  It's just that the Trump cultists who were there are saying "no, you know us, you recognize it's us, why are we under this bus?"

Others don't think that story will sell, or don't think they can tell it with a straight face, so they're trying to suggest other disinformation.  Maybe just the ringleaders were antifas, and a few innocent Q Shamans and Prude Boys and 3.2%ers got caught up in the crowd during the exuberance after the President's speech and dragged along by antifas telling them the pizza was over this way.


I always get confused if she was supposed to be Antifa or not.

I agree, but when the Democrats do stuff like that it always hurts then in elections. Its almost like people treat the Democrats like the adults in the room by condemning the Democrats for being "partisan" while praising the little itsy bitsy Republicans for being so cute while they projectile shiat up the place.

Remember when Hilary called them deplorables?

She was right, but it was used as a slogan and worn like a badge of honor. It only emboldened them and pushed Trump over the threshold in key states.

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.
