OptionC: A US congressman assured us today that this was part of the tour


This isn't one of those boring old monument/capitol tours, they have really been stepping up the excitement to attract a younger demographic. It is an immersive 'experience'.

This is one of those things I don't think we should joke about.

This should be playing in the House of Representatives tomorrow.

One officer dead as a result of injury, trauma or chemical assault.
Two officers dead of suicide for unknown reasons related to Jan 6th.
140+ Officers injured as a result of the 4+ hour assault on the Capitol.
One insurrectionist killed when trying to enter a restricted area.
One Senator and a staffer saved from an unknown fate by a Capitol Police Officer.
Fanone suffered at least one heart attack during the assault.
450+ insurrectionists currently charged, with more to come as they are identified and arrested.

The Republicans and their propaganda outlets are denying any of this ever happened.  All except a handful of individuals, and they are being ostracized for accepting and admitting the truth of the events.

Every single Representative and Senator that voted against certifying the election after the insurrection should be stripped of their office and permanently banned from holding ANY public office, at any level, in any state.  They have declared themselves to be enemies of the state and should be treated as such.

Every single Representative and Senator that is found to have directly supported or participated in activities leading up to the insurrection should be charged with sedition at minimum.  If it is proven that they provided financial or material support, they should be charged as accessories with whatever crimes that were perpetrated by those that they supported.

Justice.  No mercy.  Not for traitors.

Never forget, and never forgive.

It's a disgrace that those brave patriots had to make do with tasers and flagpoles. They could have been seriously injured in that conflict. Where was their National Guard support???

See, they were just normal tourists.

I know that whenever I visit a new city, the first thing I do is attack, taze, and try to subdue members of the local police force. You know, just normal tourist stuff.

I don't know what's more disgusting: the video, or that Trump made Tucker Carlson give him a blumpkin while he watched it.

Failure to inflict severe punishment upon all guilty parties, including those who continue to stoke the fires by pushing the lie about the election, only makes the next attempted coup that much more likely to succeed. This was a direct assault upon the Constitution itself. There hasn't been a direct threat to the Constitution like this since the Civil War.

If this sh*t happens again the Capitol Police should be authorized to shoot anyone that crosses an external doorway threshold.  Break a window, say hello to a riot gun round filled with rock salt.  They aren't going to let anyone close enough to start another 4+ hour beatdown.

I am not normally a violent person, but these motherf*ckers crossed a line.  They'd better not cross it again.

Every time they post the same sh*t on social media, flood it with replies containing that video, the link to the FBI Tip Line, the link to the body cam videos, Officer Sicknick's memorial service, Officer Fanone's letter, the definition pages for Sedition, Insurrection, and Treason, followed by their Oath of Office.  Hell, we should be doing all of that nonstop now to these bastards.  Control their narrative.  If it's their official media account, they can't legally block you.  It isn't harassment; it's a public service.

I believe it will happen again. The problem will be that it will occur when a Republican is in office and in control of federal and military personnel. At that point, we're at the mercy of whether that personnel decide to uphold their oath of office and defend the Constitution or fall into the cult of personality.

Working for the fed, I was aware that there were a number of right leaning people who were co-workers. It's just a matter of statistics that some would lean hard right. What worries me is that there are a number of people who I work alongside daily that wouldn't surprise me if they showed up in videos from 1/6 or got arrested for participating. There are people who would chop off their own balls if it furthered stigginit to the libs.

Wait, we can't joke about cops getting their ever-loving asses kicked by people who I PROMISE YOU have at least one but more likely two different bits of blue "lives" matter flair?
It's a farking gut buster.

Honest question, how many cops have those evil Black Lives Matter and antifa "thugs" tried to kill? You know, the people cops are shiatting their Paw Patrol undies over.
The right only loves cops because cops kill black people for them. Full stop.

I love The Punisher comics. Punisher Max is superbly dark comedic (usually until it isn't) story telling.

But he's a terrible person and he knows he is a terrible person. The cops that wear his skull miss the point of the character entirely. They have less self-awareness than a fictional mass murderer.

This.

It's armed insurrection against the legitimately elected government.  If you want a civil war, you're gonna have a civil war.

Riflemen standing shoulder-to-shoulder firing in volley has no place in normal armed conflict in the 21st century, but it's a hell of a way to stop an unorganized insurrectionist mob.

I hear ya - but there are enough lies going around already and so many Americans are stupid enough to use humor to minimize the truth further.

Sometimes we need to back off on our personal fancy for the greater good. Like wearing masks during a pandemic.

Or, ya know, rock on with your bad self.

I feel sorry for the police that were injured, physically and emotionally, at the riot.
They have come to realize the people they were willing to die for were not even willing to admit their leader was responsible for their injuries.

I feel sorry for the BLM protestors who are compared to insurrectionists. They had not sought a violent overthrow of the government, only the protection of others civil rights

I feel sorry for small minded and easily misled people who have over leveraged their lives based on the rantings of a madman who sought to control the world, or at the very least hand over control of the USA to nefarious Russian criminals.

But I have no compassion for any republicans that insist on reproducing the madness and evil of the puppet masters that have controlled Republican politics since installing the other doddering fool Ron RayGun.

Fahk them for what they have done to human kindness.
