Storming of the Capitol Was Pretty Cool

About time something interesting happened. It made the MAGAs look like a bunch of dumbass fools. It was really smart of them to film their antics on Instagram. Some have already been fired from their jobs. Many will face future repercussions. I wonder if they are tired of winning yet. Is this how they plan to conduct their "civil war"? If so, that should also be fun to watch.

You'd think that would be one of the first things they teach you in INSURRECTION 101:

BRING GUNS!

And what's with the guys in masks?

I'll bet you they got lots of shit from the other macho assholes there.

29. I just happened to read one cop's report of arresting a dude who was armed.

Likely there were many more.

And I'd say there was a fair amount of planning in the whole thing, just not very smart planning.

For example, coordinating with all the local enforcement jurisdictions (capitol police, National Guard, etc) to be unprepared, even though everybody knew this was coming (their online planning was very visible and widely reported).

it was a very, very, very, VERY badly planned insurrection.

Or, it was something else all together, and they didn't realize they were going to be considered insurrectionist.

Red Dawn. Our government somehow folded to a bunch of Yahoos from Cuba who conquered this country, but those independent-minded country boys fought to save us all!

I was just a dumb and naive kid when I first saw it, but I wasn't as dumb as the country bumpkin "adults" who loved that idiotic movie. Some of them are probably in the Trump cult now.

Other than that...

9. In their deluded minds, they were going to be heros.

Trump would be President and they'd be getting medals, they'd be rendered as heroic statues in parks and plazas across a grateful nation.

Instead they'll lose their jobs and get arrested.

Funny how that works out.

My brother and his friends are one example. Itís not due to violent video games, violent music, or violent movies. Itís because of dangerous propaganda emanating from social media, hate radio, and networks like Fox News and OAN.

According to some, the bearded man is Jason Tankersley, a Maryland neo-Nazi. The one taking the photo is, according to some, well-known (among anti-fascist activists) Nazi Matthew Heimbach.

45. I don't think that that is known with certainty.

What is clear is that the person that was cited as being "antifa" was in fact someone featured on an anti-fascist site as being a fascist. So, if the right-wingers were correct that the photos show the same person, then that person is in fact a fascist and not an anti-fascist.
