Today is the first time in a long time I felt pride and hope for America...
On the website that was the epicenter of plans for the violent insurrection at the US Capitol Wednesday, some of President Donald Trumps most loyal followers, who had for months shamed, silenced, and banned anyone who criticized the president, grappled with a new feeling after the riot ended: betrayal.
For months, the forum TheDonald has been a gathering place for people planning to try to overturn Trumps election defeat. But when its users actually broke into the Capitol, as they had promised to do for months, the site tried to rapidly change course, saying it would follow President Trumps lead and would not allow organizing, or calling directly for, violence of any kind.
The reversal, which moderators hinted was made under pressure from the sites hosts, left some Trump loyalists in disbelief that they had done anything wrong: They were, they said, only following the presidents orders.
I dont understand the thinking, said one popular post on the forum. Trump told us to march down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. We listened to the president. They should be thanking us.
"For weeks people were saying how ready they were to fight. The moment it happens everyone starts pearl clutching," read another popular post.
For some, Trumps video Thursday night, where he acknowledged for the first time that he had lost the election, only intensified the feelings.
Wow, what an absolute punch in the gut, one post with more than 100 upvotes said. He says its going to be wild, and when it gets wild, he calls it a heinous attack and middle fingers his supporters that he told to be there. Unbelievable.
HEY IDIOTS..DO YOU REALLY THINK RATTLESNAKES SHOW LOYALTY?
After years of fidelity, Donald Trump's most ardent online fans have finally turned on him.
All it took was for the president to acknowledge the reality of his loss a little over a day after they, the MAGA faithful, stormed the Capitol in a violent attempt to stop the certification of President-elect Joe Bidens win.
People were willing to die for this man and he just threw them all under the bus. Thats the only thing thats shameful about the events of the past 36 hours, Nick Fuentes, the host of the America First podcast and the unofficial leader of the white nationalist Groyper Army, angrily tweeted, shortly after Trump released a video Thursday night in which he conceded that Biden would be the next president and called for political reconciliation.
Cassandra Fairbanks, a prominent MAGA activist, tweeted: [He] tells angry people to march to the capitol [and then] proceeds to throw his supporters under the bus.
And there was anger. It was directed at Trump for letting things get this far. Over on Parler, the social media platform beloved by the MAGA community for its lax moderation policies, users erupted in a fury, calling him a number of expletives, a dildo, and 100% THE SWAMP.
