Same FBI that hounded Eartha Kitt?

Subby is correct, it won't be.  Unless the perpetrators suffer severe consequences, like long prison sentences or hanging, it will continue to escalate.  And the GOP senators who are about to help the leader of the attack go free don't even realize they are on the target list.  Of all of them.  Maybe Cruz would have survived had that mob gotten to him, but the rest of them are just another suit to shred.  Hawley?  Greene?  Di­a­h­reaSh­oo­ters[nospam-﹫-backwards]ylno­sre­mraf*co­m?  All of them would have been murdered.  I'm a politics junkie and that bro-fist from Hawley was the first time I've seen his face.  Wheels?  They'd have dumped him on the floor and beaten him to death with his chair.

Need to start at the outside of the opposing force.
Remove the Hawleys and such and work inward.

When you go to war, it is important to cut off all forms of supplies, reinforcements, recruiters, anyone and everyone that can aid your enemy. Cut of their water and food.

Prosecute and hang the Hawleys of the insurgency that is trying to overthrow the government and you will watch the main fighting force crumble like a cheap scone. As soon as the other son of a biatch realizes he is going to die for his cause, the sooner the ghost of General Patton smiles. (And chuckles at being able to kick the asses of those who fear "Antifa" in hell)

It was the "a form of" terrorism?

No, it's the most literal definition of terrorism.  The apotheosis of terrorism if you will. Using violence to coerce civilians for political motives.

It's not like a form of terrorism. It's exactly terrorism - the use of violence to achieve a political end.

Don't you have anything better to do with your time machine than plagiarize my post?

I contend we don't need a new law, this terrorism is foreign linked terrorism.

Throw the entire W-Cheney book at these terrorists, start by freezing the bank accounts of Betsy DeVos who has a brother who met with Putin's people in Seychelles. She astroturfed the anti-lockdown protests and is a terrorist financier and terrorist leader.

That's kind of an odd thing to say.

A: "That car is a shade of blue."
B: "No it isn't, it's blue, which is the color that car is."

It's not terrorism if the Good Ol' Boys aren't in terror, apparently.

How do you people not get it? Black people in large groups yelling is "violence." Brown people in large groups yelling is "terrorism."

White people in large groups yelling and breaking into a public building and then going into people's offices and rifling through their shiat while calling for the blood of various public officials is First Amendment rights.

Duh.

FTA: We learned that the FBI passed their concerns to the Capitol Police and the entire capital region.

Echoes from 2001.

There were workable bombs planted near each legislative house.  OF COURSE IT'S TERRORISM!

Republicans are guaranteeing a civil war at some point if Trump doesn't face consequences for January 6th.
