So, a majority of his county back home is OK with insurrection, so we have to give him a pass?  That's his Perry Mason moment?

These people think that arguing in court is the same as shouting down someone with a Biden t-shirt at the local dive bar.

"The people of Otero County have seen all of this," Griffin said during his closing. "And I can guarantee you there's a lot of them that don't agree, but there's a majority that do agree. ... For your honor to rule in the plaintiffs' favor would be directly subverting the will of the people of Otero County."

1) That's not the issue at Law, you moron.  Whether or not you participated in an insurrection is a matter of Fact, and is not up for a public vote.

and

2) Dude, someone on trial for Insurrection really shouldn't be making thinly veiled threats against the Court: "There's a lot of people out there who will be very upset if you rule against me, and gosh, who knows what they might do about it?"

Are you farking kidding me?

He'll get off.  No court in this country has the balls to say someone is Constitutionally ineligible for office because they participated in an insurrection

I hope you're wrong. We'll find out soon.

"Both sides have until Aug. 29 to submit written closing arguments to 1st Judicial District Judge Francis Mathew, who is presiding over the case.

Mathew said he will announce a verdict within 10 days of that deadline."

FTFA: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning," Griffin said as he walked to the platform, quoting from the war movie "Apocalypse Now."

Everything's performative for these douchebags.

FTA: He framed the violence in the context of it being a battle or war, during which violence is sanctioned; he said that such violent actions would be in self-defense;

"Your honor, I couldn't have participated in an insurrection, I was far too busy committing treason."

Did this guy take the Rudy Guliani crash course on criminal defense?

No need to waste time on minor details like attorneys and witnesses. Folksy aphorisms are an Express Train to Acquittalsville.

Everybody knows that.

They think the whole legal system is a sham, and they're going to show up in court and lose a default judgement to prove it.

It's only a sham if the courts rule against them

The seemingly innocuous quote was one of dozens of things Griffin said or did in the days leading up to and after the Jan. 6 attack"

That's not innocuous, you assholes!  It's a farking threat!

Ugh.. what I really detest is how their tough-guy, in your face swagger immediately melts into simpering, pussified lies like "I just meant that Democrats should be politically dead, not dead dead."

Such f*cking cowardice from you people.

You'd have to be an idiot to wear political clothing at a bar in the first place.

"the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat" and other inflammatory remarks, he said he was only referring to beating Democrats politically.
