They are protesting that the Right Wing gets held acountable (at least sometimes) to the same laws they believe should be used to oppress everyone else. That's not how it works in facist societies, which they very dearly want.

No. It's just that authoritarians require a leader. This is the result of them trying to think up a plan for themselves.

Doubtful, like I said a few days ago, it's most likely these asshats are scared call to arms and rally attempts are just setups to get them arrested. They think that's what Jan 6th was so now they are scared all pro-trump rallies/protests are.

MAGAts are mad because TFG is mad that the FBI legally executed a federal search warrant for the boxes of doxes he stole
 
2022-08-15 7:13:02 AM  
Aside from the serious nut jobs, a majority of MAGAts are loud-mouthed boors.  Look at how many who were arrested for their involvement in 1/6 were not registered voters.

Is in front of the FBI HQ a no gun, anti-2nd "Commandment" Zone -zone?  I could see a fat gun lubber ready to head down there with AR-15 #1 and being warned 'no guns allowed'.  He just flops back in the recliner and turns on Fox News.

A bunch of Gunnuts outside FBI HQ
Some firecrackers go off - no one really knows who set them off
A bunch of Gunnuts die in return fire

I wish it were true too, but remember Trump is a symptom, not the disease.  Remember, Trumpkins believe in that thing called the "Lost Cause of the Confederacy" myth.   So their pretty good a rationalizing/revisiting their actions.

No. It's just that authoritarians require a leader. This is the result of them trying to think up a plan for themselves.


Except none of these people accept a  local leader really..None of them can pass the "purity tests",
and they come apart at the seams..That's the problem with authoritarians and religious nuts.
There is ALWAYS a "purity test", and someone willing to go further or state a belief stronger. It becomes impossible for them delegate leadership beyond the one true leaders choices. .Even among the most stedfast authoritarian and theocratic leaders, there are battles of "purity" among the minions of the leaders..
Even Lenin, Mao, Stalin and PolPot had to fend off attempts to usurp their leadership by questioning of their
"purity" of their devotion to the ideals..

Nah the article pointed out that they thought it was a honeypot to either arrest the attendees or at least place them on a watchlist. Posts were made to not attend in the various republican forums.

I know thousands showed up to overthrow the government on Jan 6, 2021, however, these are the people calling for Civil War?

They go to their friendly klan rallies for TFG, and that's it. The fact that millions didn't show up on 01/06/2021 shows there is no chance of a Civil War and it's all internet keyboard warriors..OR *gasp* foreigners trying to stoke tensions even further.

Sorry, I just haven't seen the weekly CIVIL WAR thread or mention lately and was suffering withdraw

Okay I'm going to out my tinfoil hat on tightly

Do you think there is any correlation between low turnout and the FBI being a target of outrage, deciding to have all their undercover operators and Confidential Informants be voices of reason instead of agitation?

Hey Bubba it'd be a shame if your buddies found out you were rat, now maybe you might want to tell your buddies they should stay out of DC this weekend.
 
2022-08-15 8:04:09 AM  
Wait...  Is this actually true?  Someone organized a rally, and it was publicized to the extent that DC took the precaution of adding additional cops - because it was expected to be a legit event.

And no one showed?!

Seriously?!

First of all. dpoisn.com

But secondly...  This is the first real indication in many long years that the cult is about ready to break.
I see all these stories about how the Republican base has been energized by this FBI raid thing, but then we see something like this, and it completely contradicts the narrative.

We may actually be seeing a light at the end of this darkest chapter in American history.

It's not over until Trump is behind bars for provable multiple violations of the Espionage Act. The mandatory sentence is 10 years . . . per document. And let's not forget the Rosenbergs. Executing Trump is probably too much to hope for, but a 50-year sentence would be nice.

I think the best we can hope for is house arrest, and he'll be barred from holding federal office.

On a Sunday? Well then obviously the TFGers who are mobile enough to get out of the house/trailer will have spent the entire day at their local megachurch where they get their marching orders about whom/what to hate this week and in return donate most of their disposable income. Maybe do it on a Monday next time.
