It does precisely the opposite, and Germany has to be watching this and quietly building up their military. We've learned nothing from the Beer Hall Putsch and the events that followed.

By law, if an individual enjoined from contact with another individual or group finds themselves in a public situation where the enjoined party is, or becomes, present, it is the responsibility of that individual to remove themselves from that place immediately.

Instead this guy hung out and partied.  Send his ass to jail, just like you would if a black man attended a BLM rally.

Who slaps a two year old on the wrist?

You hang em in a burlap sack from a tree and beat them with a rake.

Now he gets to go to jail.
See, this is how the system works, and it works this way for everyone.
Sometimes people fark up and get in trouble with the law. The law has leeway and assumes something about something until something.
Just don't fark up because they will get you once they find out you did.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you pretty much get to lance corporal in the Marines by simply NOT screwing up and doing your 2 and getting a DD214?

Pretty much was my dads case, and he got out in 63

Jackson's attorney told CNN that Jackson had no knowledge the Proud Boys would be attending and that he is complying with the terms of his release. She added that the Justice Department is aware of his participation in the rally, but hasn't flagged it to the judge or tried to revoke his bail.

Yep. It's one of the "you get promoted as long as you don't Fark up" after a period of time. E-4 and E5 are slightly harder but it isn't until staff-sergeant things get demanding. Also depends on your job, some MOS promote more quickly because they can't keep people

Yeah, you gotta show the 2 year old you mean business!

Making it touch a hot stovetop, or beat it within an inch of its life, those are usually my go-tos.

( I model all my child rearing techniques on a tough-on-crime mentality.)

He probably got forced out as a Terminal Lance.

Lance Corporals (Enlisted-3) who don't get promoted (as in denied) to full Corporal (E-4) by the end of their initial enlistment are usually prohibited from re-enlisting in the Marine Corps and have to finish their first and only enlistment as a dead-end Terminal Lance.

Came here for a 2 year old slapping a 1/6 insurrectionist.

Leaving disappointed.

I guess I should at least finish reading the headlines.

In theory a stiff sentence and / or consequences might break the brainwashing they've swallowed. A light slap of the wrist won't change anything.

bighairyguy: Jackson called on the Justice Department to "prosecute every Congress member that was part of this set-up coup against us."

Huh. It's usually "They didn't really do anything bad!" with a cherry-picked photo of them not breaking anything at the moment it was taken and some whataboutism, or "It was all a false flag! They were all just Democrats pretending to be Republicans!" A few of the really dumb ones try to say both, despite the contradiction.*

But this guy was personally caught there, so he can't say the second one. So he has the different position that he was tricked into doing it somehow. Probably also believes the first one as well.

*I sarcastically said them both in quotation marks in the comments under a social media post by a major fact-checking site and I got torn to shreds by fellow liberals who thought I was being serious until I edited it. But at least roughly half of them figured it out. I think Fark has screwed up my perception of what a normal level of sarcasm is.

These were his conditions for pretrial release. He hadn't actually been sentenced or even convicted yet.

Because they were allowed to run a multi-generational propaganda campaign effectively unfettered and now they have enough members - many in government and law enforcement - that it is no longer practical to arrest them all, never mind hang them.

It will either fizzle out (and if so, very slowly and painfully) or you'll get civil war (most likely in the form of Ya'llQaida domestic terrorist attacks).  I am not placing any bets on actual governance and enforcement restoring sanity in a calm and orderly fashion.

So person who was at 1/6 has been spouting conspiracy theories about 1/6.  Did he accuse himself of actually being antifa?

Bullets are inefficient.  I'm not sure the Nazis - despite all the popular stereotypes - were much more efficient with the camps, either.

Besides, do you really want to execute a third of the country?  It's not possible.  What you really want to do is handle the top level people and cow the average cultist idiot into shutting up out of fear.  If they can't talk in the open, they can't spread their ideas to other idiots quite as rapidly.

That means you have to take care of everyone who participated in the insurrection or took Russian money.  Every one of them, without exception, federal, state, or local.  Politician, political donor, public servant, cop, or grass roots Facebook moron.  And then you have to burn Fox to the ground, figuratively and literally.  Preferably with the employees in the building.

That's what I don't see as any more likely than a snowball surviving in Hell, and that's why I think things will continue to get worse before there's any hope they'll get better.

I am all in favor of rounding up every moron who was dumb enough to believe Man-child's lies and attend that rally. Sterilize them so their stupid gene can not procreate, and send them to modern day leper colony to live out rest of their lives away from actual humans. Most of all they should lose the privilege of voting, they have proven to be just too farking dumb to be allowed to make decisions that affects society.

They are not my equals, and I am sick of society continuing to treat them as human beings. F**k all that "its economic anxiety" crap, they are just our nation's trash.

The problem is that it's cultural, not genetic.  For all the jokes about COVID improving the gene pool, there's no reason to believe that they couldn't have been decent people if raised properly - or, more disturbingly, that we couldn't have turned out much like them if we'd been raised improperly.

Yes, they are now trash, and yes, they have to be dealt with, but you absolutely, positively have to deal with the environment that turned a third of the population into trash.

A third of the country was not involved in the attempt to overthrow the Government. Just execute those directly involved.

But if you remove the genetic component then it reduces the cultural component. Sterilize Billy Joe Jim Bob and he is not going to raise Billy Joe Jim Bob II, Billy Joe Jim Bob III, Billy Joe Jim Bob IIV, Billy Joe Jim Bob V, and Billy Joe Jim Bob VI to be just like himself.

Did you say someone ignored the government they tried to overthrow even after they got away with it? How is it possible they didn't learn the error of their ways?  Every other bad person has stopped doing bad things after they see no one really cares.  Look at Facebook.  After the UK hit them with that $660,000 fine (3 minutes of revenue) for Cambridge Analytica, they immediately stopped using their business model and never sold private information again.
