You try to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States of America, then you better be prepared to pay the price. Find ALL of these people and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. If the hammer of justice doesn't come down now, then when? Identify. prosecute. Sentence. Make an example so that this NEVER is attempted again, otherwise we will deal with this every other election cycle and eventually they will succeed. That cannot happen if the United States hopes to continue to exist. Enough already!

I'm wondering if the people running FB are busy trying to find ways of preventing this so as to cover for these seditious farks.

They just don't want to get sued and especially don't want the Feds to start regulating social media. Their worst nightmare would be an anti-trust suit and congress is just a little ticked off that an angry mob came to kill them.

Fta: "A search of the FBI's database "returned a number of tips" about Gundersen, including pictures of Gundersen wearing the jacket "on multiple occasions," including in photos he had posted with Fox News personalities."

Anyone looking for a direct correlation between Fox News propaganda and a radicalized massively disinformed right?

Cos yeah, this right here.

One more reason to aboid social media.

Listen farksticks.   If you want to form a criminal conspiracy, do it in person.  Verbally, or on easily destroyed notes on paper.  Preferablly in a location where you cannot be reliably bugged.  Nothing stays written down, nothing permanent.  All purchases in cash, preferablly from around a central point that is several hundred miles from you.  Your cell phone stays on, but leave it at home, so you dont leave a farking gps path.

If you are on social media, keep it sanitized.  Keep posting cat videos, and nothing more controvercial than biatching about how the neighbour mows his lawn at 8am on a Saturday.  You dont farking BRAG about your criminal conspiracy!

Or... do it all on FaceBook.  Let the feds keep detailed notes on every stage of your plan.  Your choice.
 
2021-01-28 4:26:02 AM  
I said it right at the beginning: we may not know who you are now, but we know your face, and somewhere out there is someone who does know you and didn't like you be much.

I was definitely looking at pictures to see if I spotted any acquaintances

Wanna bet he calls himself "alpha"?

I cannot with these people anymore. Block block block - I use FB to keep in touch with friends and family back home in Chicago and around the world. Have a laugh, post some memes. Overthrow the government? Your mayonnaise is getting a little spicy there pilgrim

When fantasy tries to cross over into reality it doesn't usually go well, like Tom Hanks in that DnD movie.

Anyway, at least I now have my candy heart phrase for Valentine's Day.

FTFA: "Take the case against Patrick Stedman, a 32-year-old from Haddonfield, New Jersey, who held himself out as a "Dating + Relationship Strategist" on Twitter, where he had 25,000 followers. Witness 1, a college classmate of Stedman's, told the feds they were "one hundred percent confident" that the individual posting on @Pat_Stedman was the person they knew in college. Witness 2, a high school classmate, submitted a tip to the FBI's portal two days after the Jan. 6 attack. In a follow-up interview, Witness 2 said they were "one hundred percent sure" that Stedman was posting on @Pat_Stedman. They also pointed out in their FBI interview that they believed Stedman resides with his parents, a fact that the bureau dutifully included in the criminal complaint."

He is basically "that guy" who knows everything about women and relationships, but never had one. We all know one or two of  them.

A search of the FBI's database "returned a number of tips" about Gundersen, including pictures of Gundersen wearing the jacket "on multiple occasions," including in photos he had posted with Fox News personalities. One tip said that an entire group of high school alumni, "based on their knowledge of GUNDERSEN and his views," believed it was him in the jacket."

I'll bet he sells women's shoes for a living.

26 and still wearing your high school varsity football jacket in public? I'm smelling a lot of Al Bundy emanating from this dude.

But still, fark the Zuck


I find it amusing when Zuckerberg is being interviewed and he is trying so hard to come across as a humanitarian such as Steve Jobs was or Bill Gates is. It is so forced when he tries and never comes across as he hopes. It is because at his core Zuckerberg is a sociopath who wants power. People often forget that he stole the concept and company from his "best buddies" in college. The theft was so brazen, Zuck had to pay them a huge settlement. Now Zuck is basically doing it to the users by profiting off extremism. Zuckerberg is not worried about the controversial content, he is afraid of being held responsible.

Well, they've spent the past generation or two vilifying education of any sort, which has been really helpful when it comes to stuff like having them post pictures of themselves committing federal crimes and helpfully putting captions like, "Yep! I was there!" underneath.

Maybe they should add some sort of "ignore" feature and place the onus of regulating the feeds on the user?  Maybe charge them a fee on top of it?

Well, maybe more like a few pieces of chocolate you dropped in your bed while feeding them to your new gf, and you didn't realize and then you end up sleeping with them right under your butt...

If you're going to commit crimes, you do it quickly as possible, with as little exposure as possible, and if you're going to be on camera cover your face-not even because of COVID.

Bank robbers figured this out centuries ago.

Yer following a racist means to them that you know, in yer heart, they're right.

Like inviting that uncle to Thanksgiving.

These people are amazed these token and yet-to-matter repercussions are happening because they believed they are the silent majority. You've enabled them. Stop. Please. You are hurting actual humans and holding the country back by tolerating these assholes.

I have an old high school classmate who I know for a fact was a super hardcore QAnon nutjob, who I just found out this week is now a Proud Boy and participated in the January 6 insurrection.  The Wall Street Journal is currently hot on his heels.  They just left a voicemail for another old classmate asking if she had any recent contact with him.  If the WSJ is on to him, then he's definitely on the FBI's radar.  Here's my old classmate at 3:59 in this WSJ video:

I don't have an account, but I was using the business account to look up an ex.  Definitely a trumper, no surprise, so now I will be looking at photos a lot closer to see if I can spot him.
