At the MI Capitol - Armed MAGATs Yelling - Some Senators are wearing bullet proof vests

Directly above me, men with rifles yelling at us. Some of my colleagues who own bullet proof vests are wearing them. I have never appreciated our Sergeants-at-Arms more than today.

22. Its legal to carry a gun into the Michigan Capitol building

You know what is illegal to carry in the building? A sign. Signs are banned to prevent damage to the murals on the walls. We tried changing the law 2-3 years ago and it went nowhere.

25. No problem

The whole guns ok, signs not ok thing is stupid. A barrel of a rifle could do far more damage to the paint and plaster then a cardboard sign. But this has been going on for as long as I remember. I think there is an armed rally on capitol grounds and in the building once or twice a year usually.

5. This is nauseating and revolting

I wonder if any Republican in Michigan - elected official or ordinary citizen - will breathe a word against these terrorists, or complain to the media about how they're hurting the cause with their buffoonery?

This is a hostile takeover of a peaceful government office.

I guarantee they walked right by at least a dozen local, state, and Capitol police on their way to the chambers. They aren't breaking any laws, as crazy as that is.

It's going to be a fucking long haul, but we need to clean this kind of shit out of our law enforcement as well.

38. Unfortunately, in law enforcement is where they are the most dangerous. The military, too.

Even though the military is probably a good place for some of them, remember that special forces guy that was murdering people, who trump pardoned? This type of person is just plain no good, for the most part.

8. The Timothy McVeigh contingent of gun-humping political "victims".

Summation: A group of anti-social white supremacists and anti-semites who know themselves to be constitutional scholars and the true patriots of liberty and freedom. With cognitive abilities so underdeveloped they cannot articulate coherent thought or comparative analysis. Spitefully imbecilic and contemptibly stupid.

Consequently: Guns. Lots and lots of guns.

become if we have four more years of the current administration.

36. What do you mean "will become"?

We're already fucking there.

It's time to quit pussyfooting around with this shit.

The military should have been called out when those asshats siezed the national park in Utah. Turn some of the fuckers into pink vapor, and you'll see less of these jackasses pulling this shit.

One thing you can say about the Branch Dividians... they're not holding kids hostage anymore, or showing up at State Houses with long guns.

Some actions need to be put down, or you just encourage more of it.

I never thought I would hate like this, but that was before I was bombarded by Donnie Shit for Brains every fucking day for the last 3.5 years.

These folks will never reason with you, or compromise. They need to be defeated...period.

Hell, Democrats could win 80% of the vote in November and you'd still have these dipshits parading around with their dick extenders intimidating people.

14. People who show up in a Capitol building brandishing guns need to be locked up

and isolated from society.

Hopefully the police will arrive soon and take control of the situation.

17. Calling Jared and Ivanka: you should be there shaking hands

These are Daddy's core supporters. Let them know how appreciated they are. Get among them, talk to them face to face, do a little back slapping, shake hands. Shake lots and lots of hands. Lots and lots.

And be sure to show solidarity! No socialist trappings like masks or hand sanitizer. Nothing to fear when you're among Real Americans!

30. I'll consider this a "real" grassroots protest

When we turn the police dogs loose on them and blast them with firehoses.

If they come back after that, then I'll consider them committed to the cause.

Real protests for real injustice require people to have sacrificed. Maybe a couple of nights in jail... maybe a few scars... maybe having dogs siced on you.

These folks know that all they are facing after this display of ignorance and hate is a plate of warm pizza rolls in mom's basement.
