Listening to MSNBC now. Discussing Intel failures. Why was the info not heeded?
I am going to put this out here and take my lumps.
It is obvious to me that all the intel was ignored ON PURPOSE!!! The protestors-soon to be insurrectionists, were going to be Trumpians, MAGA and white supremacists. The powers in charge at the time were THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, TRUMP, AND ALL THE TRUMPIAN BRASS AT THE PENTAGON. Had this been a BLM protest, the national guard would have bunked out all night on Jan 5 at the Capitol, the SC, the WH. No protestor would have been allowed within 100 yards of government buildings.
STOP playing around the edges. It is not even a serious question about why intel was not prepared. It was never intended for any organized resistance. All one has to do is consider that Trump even wanted his supporters with weapons to be passed through the magnetometers at his speech. He was quoted as saying that "they aren't here to hurt me."
MEDIA, PLEASE STOP THE BS AND STOP REPEATING THE GOP TALKING POINT about why was there no better preparation for J6. The DC police were ready and on the scene because they were not being controlled by the Trump administration.
FUCKING TELL THE DAMN TRUTH!!
Passing out for the rant and going to bed really angry!
There was a concerted effort to make sure that the intel never got delivered to the decision maker - Donald Trump.
Just like "the criminal justice system is broken" meme, it's not. It's working exactly as the powerful want it to. For them. Same with health care and education.
If the Intel had been handled better, a large presence of enforcement were present, and the Magas stopped before any harm was done, we would be living in a different reality. I am not sure any of the criminals would be facing judgement.
Whether because of the right wing aspect, or the authoritarian aspect, they LIHOP.
