When there's a guy threatening to blow up the Library of Congress, and you just immediately assume he's one of "your" guys, maybe that should tell you something.
 
2021-08-19 6:31:20 PM  
Been in downtown DC all day, I don't think this guy had enough explosives to even blow himself up. They didn't bother breaking out the helicopters, which they normally do for serious threats.

Usul, we have ratio-sign the likes of which Twitter has never seen.

At least he's encouraging voting rather than violence.

Whar dictatorial soshulism? I think some people must eat a lot of bullshiat to fit in with their bros.

Point of order, his statement can be read as encouraging violence during election years.

It's when your parents make you have a play date with the Republican kid from down the street.

Oh, maybe that's dictatorial socializing.

Any time there's a terrorist attack and it's an Islamic person who does it all the right wingers demand anyone who's Muslim denounce the attack, as if they had something to do with it.

Well, here we have another right wing terrorist... and instead of denouncing it, Mo Brooks is making excuses for him, and indicating he supports his goals.

Birds of a deranged feather flock together. Which is easy when they all watch the same propaganda sources. Somehow a few of them got into Congress but they still subscribe to the same foolishness as the rubes watching TV on the couch at home.

I wonder if dictatorial socialism might be having millions of stimulus checks printed to send to citizens, and then the POTUS demanding that his personal signature is on every single check, so they all have to be destroyed, and people have to wait 3 weeks longer to get their money.
 
2021-08-19 7:11:10 PM  
1200 likes. Seems to me the FBI should be raiding these future terrorists.

Que? What the bloody hell does the Library of Congress have to do with "socialism?"

The worst part is... without a doubt this anti-American terrorist farker, who doesn't even know where the "socialists" are, would claim without a moment's hesitation to be more "patriotic" than any of us on the same day he was intending to attack the place where the nation's founding documents reside.

When people say they're going to kill you but then they pull out squirt guns, you still have a problem, because they still want you dead.

In the state that's dead last in vaccination rate.

Alabamians vote for abominable people. That's what they're comfortable with and admire.

That's a support sandwich made with mild-disapproval bread.

it's extremely discouraging.  some days i think that maybe after we finally get through this pandemic that people will remember and actually vote in there best interests. they probably won't.
 
2021-08-19 7:17:05 PM  
He sure likes to support violent people. I wonder if he'd like to talk about that on the record in front of the 1/6 committee?

austerity101: When people say they're going to kill you but then they pull out squirt guns, you still have a problem, because they still want you dead.


Oh no doubt. I thought for sure they'd shoot the guy - the feds are good enough to know even if that truck was packed with explosives, his ability to do any real damage once they evacuated the area was effectively nil.

Maybe his Facebook live feed helped, who knows?
 
2021-08-19 7:17:57 PM  

abb3w: At least he's encouraging voting rather than violence.


No, he's not.  He's encouraging people to fight in the elections.  But nowhere does he say that the fight should be through voting.

He's basically saying this guy should've waited until election day and sat outside a polling place.

If American Justice™ were nothing more than another empty slogan, Mo Brooks would be in prison with the rest of the 1/6 terrorist ringleaders.

Come to think of it, if American Justice™ were more than another empty slogan, 1/6 wouldn't have happened in the first place.
 
2021-08-19 7:18:59 PM  
Mo Brooks is a terrorist.  Arrest him already Jesus farking Christ.
 
2021-08-19 7:21:02 PM  
Just 2 decades ago, you could get blackballed for saying stuff like this about terrorists.

I thought that after they declared grocery store workers to be "essential" that we'd see the minimum wage go up...
 
2021-08-19 7:21:24 PM  
Although this terrorist's motivation is not yet publicly known, and generally speaking, I understand citizenry anger directed at dictatorial Socialism and its threat to liberty, freedom and the very fabric of American society.

You want to try again, Mo? Maybe form a coherent farking sentence this time?
 
2021-08-19 7:21:41 PM  
I see he doesn't believe in paragraphs.

This chromosome-deficient mutant needs to be thrown screaming from a helicopter.
 
2021-08-19 7:23:17 PM  
Pretty sure that's sedition and treason. He needs double tapped by ten officers in a row.

I thought the future of America was at risk in 2020. Apparently, that was a typo, or just straight up bull shiat.
 
2021-08-19 7:24:26 PM  
I've got a wild idea. How about nobody blow up DC?
 
2021-08-19 7:24:58 PM  
Walk around with a comb while black? Get shot.

Livestream on Facebook your piss poor attempt at bombing the capitol? Get a congrats from a senator

fark you Mo

Moo Brooks was a Traitor (wearing body armor) on Insurrection Day, remains an AmericanTraitor to this very day, and will be a Traitor to America until the day he dies!  But it is ALA-Farking-BAMA and he's a good ole Fascist Trump bootlicker boy, so what do you expect?  I'll bet he is vaxxed but doesn't want that information public, and will be first in line for retro-viral treatment just like Trump and Abbott and all the other two-faced Traitors!

Wow, shocked he actually acknowledged white male terrorism, but not surprised to see the GOP tonguing their ballsacks.

Surely Mo refers to all the efforts to overturn election results. Thats' the only real threat to democracy we're facing right now.

Looking at a map & knowing where the white supremacy terrorist drove from, I bet he encountered a DC spaghetti bowl for the first time in his life, exited the freeway wherever he could, turned right b/c it's easiest when you're lost & drove toward the biggest buildings he could see. He didn't know exactly where he was going, didn't aim to wind up at the Library, I'm sure. Heck, if he'd planned ahead at all he probably wouldn't have driven right past Nancy Pelosi's office like he did.
This jerk got trapped in crawling traffic on Independence Ave & when he saw all that open, accessible area in front of the Library, that's when he decided This Is The Place & took his useless, stupid stand.
He & Mo deserve each other. Here's hoping they're cellmates one day.

He was trying to get to the Capitol building.  The dumbass probably googled "Congress Washington DC" and hit the first result and it gave him directions to the Library of Congress.

So yet again Republicans hope for death of others to bolster their numbers.

The grim reaper and Poe's law are off drinking themselves silly.
