The thing about violent fascists is that they are violent and fascist regardless of whether or not they face opposition. Trying to appease them by letting their leadership slide on crimes does nothing to quell their violence. It does nothing but strengthen their resolve and power.

Trump should be facing accountability for his crimes and if his supporters are going to be violent about it then our law enforcement apparatus must take care of them, too, to protect the country if nothing else.

You know, I never go out looking for a fight. I'll debate anyone, pretty much anywhere and at anytime. The trick is never to mistake the fact I do honestly believe that "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent" for pacifism. You get violent? Well then debate goes out the windows and you become a violent threat to the safety of others and America. After all, I'm going to defend myself and others from people who want to kill us. How would I defend myself and/or others?

Unfortunately threats like that often have to be put down permanently, like any rabid animal.

Oh no, whatever you do, don't occupy another bird sanctuary out in the tactically valued areas of Malheur national wildlife refuge, or some other cattle ranches out in rural no man's land.

Or what, you'll do your usually drive in to a city in your pickups, honk your horns wave your flags and your guns, and then after about 4 hours fark off home again because no one gives a shiat?

I'll take you dipshiats seriously when you do what a liberal protest does and set up a medical pavilion and supply tent. Then you'll be serious because it'll look like you're actually planning for days and long sustained occupations. Till then it's all hats and no cattle.

Or try another J6 style insurrection, go on, do it. The last time you basically shot your wad and several of your more crazy, you know the ones willing to actually push forward now sit in jail as a signal to anyone else looking to fark around.

But hey, your God King is worth spending the next several months to years sitting behind prison bars and then having a felony criminal record slapped on you that you have to disclose on your resume as you go hunting for work again after being fired for not being able to get in to the office, on account of being in jail.

So, knock yourselves out. This is your hill to die on, so, go die.

He's just fat going nuts on TruthSocial. I'm meeting with some MAGA friends for drinks tonight so I'm expecting fireworks from them when I back the blue.

I've been workshopping exactly what to say on TruthSocial and it only cost me one alt this time.

Because until Trump shows the warrant then why should we believe anything he has to say? This is his FBI director who issued the warrant not some deep state person or *gasp* democrat who did this.

I will need several drinks.

Of course they are in the thrall of a conspiracy, they've live one their entire life, but not the one you think.

Every time a Civil War monument went up, every time police maintained order instead of bringing criminals to justice, every time a Republican elected official is not admonished for doing something fascist it reinforces the "two tier" society narrative.  The "yeah the law says one thing, but we know how it really is" conspiracy.

That what they've been told their entire lives, that they were in the secret group who was really in charge, not those socialist liberals in California or New England.

And that is what the MAGAts are really upset about, that they aren't.  That they're just like everyone else.

I don't know what terrifies me more. These large asses who have guns but no brains or the so-called Independents and too many of our fellow citizens who are absolutely blind to what's going on.

Anyone who's ever studied the rise of Nazi Germany and fascism is aware of how terrifying this is.

To think there's still some idiots out there who say both sides are the same

2022-08-10 10:03:21 AM  
There is no evidence to support the idea that the raid on Mar-a-Lago was politically motivated. FBI Director Christopher Wray is a Trump appointee and would almost certainly have personally signed off on the warrant; so too would the attorney general and a federal judge. The Biden White House, by contrast, says it was not informed of the search in advance. We also know the target was real - possibly classified documents Trump improperly brought back to his private residence - and that there are a number of serious crimes that Trump might well have committed in office. It's possible that the raid turns out to be an overreach or a mistake - FBI history is certainly full of those - but, as of right now, there is no evidence of any kind of political misconduct on the part of the agency.

I like Zack.  Here you see him in his role as the captain of the U.S.S. NO shiat SHERLOCK.  It has set sail and those aboard don't really need these announcements and those left ashore will never hear them.

Even so, I'm glad these things are said, and plainly and clearly at that.

January 2021: "America is over if the Usurper Joe Biden is allowed to seize power! Stop the Steal! Civil War II! We will fight in the hills and hide in tunnels. They can't kill us all. We will burn down as much of America as we have to to save it. Will will sacrifice whatever we have to, and we know we'll win because our will is superior to that of the Liberal Snowflakes."

May 2022: "Gas prices and inflation are making it too expensive to fill up my $55,000 F-350. I might not be able to afford to drive up to Maine this year. My grocery store didn't have my favorite brand of saltine crackers for a week because of Sleepy Joe's supply chain crisis. Pizza Hut restaurants look dingier than they did in the 1990's. This is the worst thing to happen to America since 9-11. We are all suffering."

August 2022: "America is over if the Usurper Joe Biden is allowed to enforce the law! Civil War II! We will fight in the hills and hide in tunnels. They can't kill us all. We will burn down as much of America as we have to to save it. Will will sacrifice whatever we have to, and we know we'll win because our will is superior to that of the Liberal Snowflakes."

Silly logical, reasonable person.  Laws are only for ni*BONG* and poors!  It's not like this is a new development, either; they've been telling us this for literal decades:

Nixon replied: "Well, when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal" *
*offer void if the president is a democrat, or a ni*BONG*, or even worse, a ni*BONG* democrat...

bighairyguy: Because that all worked out so well for them last time.


I mean, it kind of did, though so far - right?

Literally no one of any importance in the Conservative or Republican Spheres has faced any consequences at all.

Which really makes the outcome of the J6 hearings that much more important. We already see what their response to literally everything is now - "Overthrow the Government!" It's because their first attempt to overthrow the government resulted in no consequences (for anyone that mattered, so far).

If we let them get away with it once, this will be their solution to everything for all time.

The world's largest and best-funded terrorist organization threatens terrorist attacks in response to their leader's legal troubles?

Wouldn't it be a shame if the anti-terrorism provisions of the PATRIOT Act were turned against them.
 
2022-08-10 10:07:52 AM  
Don't get me wrong - this is not good.  People are going to die because of these crazies.  With Oklahoma City in the rear-view mirror it's likely it will be the sort of soft targets terrorists always seem to go after.

But, the end result will be... nothing.  Your average bunkered up RWNJ isn't going to be dragged off to a camp.  Their guns won't be confiscated.  Their churches won't be banned. They'll still be able to obliterate squirrels with AR-15s on the weekends.    Their lives will not change in any consequential way.

At some point even these folks that thrive on outrage are going to burn themselves out.  Being outraged is exhausting, it's unhealthy both physically and mentally and it's just not sustainable for years and years.

Don't even have to drone strike them.  Cut off water, power, and sewage.  Blockade the roads in and out.

I'd give it a week before the ones that survive would surrender.

The GOP want to stroke its Anti Government wing, hoping all of them get killed or arrested by the time the GOP comes to power, if the terrorism works.   They can't even foment a successful revolt against themselves like on January 6th.

You really have to study the recent Russian Civil War (aka Revolution) to see who gets purged and how nasty that gets.  Also, if you like shortages and starvation you'll want to be on their side.

The alternative was "letting Trump get away with it".

This GQP response was not only inevitable, it is standard. Go on the complete offense so that the Dems cower and back down. It's always worked for them before.

Except this time, I am not seeing any signs of the Dems backing down. Something about them having their lives in danger from the MAGA Mob on January 6th that has emboldened them to stand their ground this time. Hopefully they keep standing strong.
