16 days ago, followers of a radical domestic terrorism cult stormed the Capitol of the country, killing a police officer and injuring countless others.

The official account of a political party in the 2nd most populous state just tweeted the slogan of the cult.

Texas GOP
@TexasGOP
We're on Gab!

26. So it always been (I think)...

Been thinking about this today. The brain worms are the same. The CSs they create as they feed just evolve.

15 years ago, it was aliens are abducting us.
Minus 15 years, it was CIA killed Kennedy
Minus 15 years, it was CIA psychics and Area 51
Minus 15 years, it was Communists at State Department

It's the same freakin Brain Worm. Its eating the same reason-deficient brains.

33. No, that's too romantic - think Nazi stormtroopers - the SA

The Sturmabteilung (SA), literally "Storm Detachment", was the Nazi Party's original paramilitary wing. It played a significant role in Adolf Hitler's rise to power in the 1920s and 1930s. Its primary purposes were providing protection for Nazi rallies and assemblies; disrupting the meetings of opposing parties; fighting against the paramilitary units of the opposing parties, especially the Roter Frontkämpferbund of the Communist Party of Germany (KPD) and the Reichsbanner Schwarz-Rot-Gold of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD); and intimidating Romani, trade unionists, and especially Jews.
...
The term Sturmabteilung predates the founding of the Nazi Party in 1919. Originally it was applied to the specialized assault troops of Imperial Germany in World War I who used infiltration tactics based on being organized into small squads of a few soldiers each. The first official German stormtrooper unit was authorized on March 2, 1915 on the Western Front. The German high command ordered the VIII Corps to form a detachment to test experimental weapons and develop tactics that could break the deadlock on the Western Front. On October 2, 1916, Generalquartiermeister Erich Ludendorff ordered all German armies in the west to form a battalion of stormtroopers. They were first used during the 8th Army's siege of Riga, and again at the Battle of Caporetto. Wider use followed on the Western Front in the Spring Offensive in March 1918, when Allied lines were successfully pushed back tens of kilometers.
...
A permanent group of party members, who would serve as the Saalschutzabteilung (meeting hall protection detachment) for the DAP, gathered around Emil Maurice after the February 1920 incident at the Hofbräuhaus. There was little organization or structure to this group. The group was also called the "Stewards Troop" (Ordnertruppen) around this time. More than a year later, on August 3, 1921, Hitler redefined the group as the "Gymnastic and Sports Division" of the party (Turn- und Sportabteilung), perhaps to avoid trouble with the government. It was by now well recognized as an appropriate, even necessary, function or organ of the party. The future SA developed by organizing and formalizing the groups of ex-soldiers and beer-hall brawlers who were to protect gatherings of the Nazi Party from disruptions from Social Democrats (SPD) and Communists (KPD), and to disrupt meetings of the other political parties. By September 1921 the name Sturmabteilung (SA) was being used informally for the group. Hitler was the official head of the Nazi Party by this time.

The Nazi Party held a large public meeting in the Munich Hofbräuhaus on November 4, 1921, which attracted many Communists and other enemies of the Nazis. After Hitler had spoken for some time, the meeting erupted into a mêlée in which a small company of SA thrashed the opposition. The Nazis called this event the Saalschlacht (transl. Meeting hall battle), and it assumed legendary proportions in SA lore with the passage of time. Thereafter, the group was officially known as the Sturmabteilung.

19. How many of these clowns need a security clearance?

Do any of these conspiracy clowns want federal jobs as Senators or congress-critters? What happens if they are too compromised to get a clearance? This is something we need to work on in our laws as they relate to elections. Let's not have any more heavily compromised politicians in DC.

Trivia for you-when I was much younger and getting my first clearance, it was just your basic "secret" clearance. Same thing that everyone got when working at Hanford. It was called a "Q Clearance".

elected Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.

On the other hand, my district also just gave the world Margie the Kook. Even if COVID didn't exist, I'd still wear a mask these days when I leave the area. When anyone asks where I'm from, I just say "France" (it seemed to work for the Coneheads).

43. Sturmabteilung, SA, Brownshirts - The GOP is not even subtle about it anymore.

"Storm Detachment", was the Nazi Party's original paramilitary wing. It played a significant role in Adolf Hitler's rise to power.

I fear that the "storm" is the overthrow of democratic government and installation of a one party fascist state.


Please tell me that This is just wing nut hyperbole.
