First of all, they are criminals...

Just because they wave huge American flags (or Trump flags) and shout "USA! USA! USA!" does not make them patriotic Americans. They used their flags to beat cops.

If you go into a bank with a Bible and a gun and demand all their money, that does not make you a good Christian.

When they assault and kill police officers and force their way into the Capitol and threaten and terrorize all those inside the Capitol, they are criminals.

They are not patriots.

No one should be confused.

2. The people who will defend these "patriots" are the same ones who will support

Cops busting heads at a BLM (or most any other) demonstration.

That's the sort of raw blunt thought to throw in people's faces. It might wake a few up.

6. The only confusion

Is being created and pushed by those who want confusion. Any confusion is from them and any attempt to obfuscate or lie about it is just more proof that they know what they are doing and there is no confusion about this at all.

19. Their efforts to rewrite what happened on 1/6 are futile.

We all saw it happen - live coverage on television for hours. To attempt to deny what happened just makes them look like fools - or worse, seditionists themselves.

13. Those "Patriots"

Have made me cringe when I see a huge flag in a truck or on a house. It makes me cringe when watching international
Sports and hear the chant, “USA..USA”! Especially with Olympics almost hear. Watching US National Women’s Soccer seeing the fans decked in Red White and Blue brings thoughts of the insurrection scene and Trump rallies. Those Patriots of Trump world stole that pride from us.
We will have to chant “SOA..SOA” for those able to attend the Olympics. States Of America.
The Covid restrictions of fans at the games may be good…….not having to cringe when our athletes represent the Good of America. In many colors, not Red or blue. Just the amazing diversified colors of our people.

15. And those criminals came to D.C. and invaded the Nation's Capitol because of Donald Trump

He:

gave the day, the date, the time and the place on at least dozen public and private invitations to his criminals.

Helped to pay for it using campaign funds.

had his chief of staff Nick Mulvany's niece file the paperwork for his pre riot/attempted coup warm up party.

decapitated the D.C. National Guard prior to the riot/attempted coup.

had the Capitol Police watching out for BLM and ANTIFA members and told them to protect the pro Trump people.

refused to call off his criminals when asked to do so by Pence & McCarthy.

was hoping for more bloodshed and death so he could have declared martial law and stopped the transfer of power
was mandated under the US Constitution.

told them that he was proud of them and that he loved them after all the bloodshed, violence, and > $30 million
in damage to the US Capitol.

31. They went to the Capitol with a plan to use terrorism

to overturn a free and fair election in violation of the will of the people and the Constitution. That makes them enemies of the people and enemies of the state. They should be treated as the terrorists that they are. Anyone who entered the Capitol should be stripped of their citizenship, their property and their freedom. They believed that a victory would be the beginning of a second Civil War intended to strip the people of the nation of power and install a dictator. These people see their failure at the Capitol as a temporary setback, a tactical defeat, a warm-up. As traitors they, and the institutions that support them, are more of a danger than our foreign enemies.

These Brown Shirt bastards consider themselves to be at war against you. They have a long list of "enemies" with liberals being at the top; they are like a cancer that continues to grow if untreated.
