      The most hilarious slap in the face to these peaceful protesters will be when the chaos they caused results in Nancy Pelosi being temporarily sworn in as POTUS. Poetic justice?

      Oh my fucking God. The whack jobs are committing insurrection. Washington and the Capitol Building have tons of cameras. These people will be round up and charged with sedition. Reason us punishable by death. You can’t just assault the Capitol, regardless of personal beliefs. I think these people are too stupid to understand that these people are not going to be treated as protestors. If caught, they will charged with treason. D.C., Maryland and Virginia National Guards has been mobilised and is en route. These idiots have no idea what a real military can do. They may be about to find out.

      Trump, even in his request for people to go home, pours fuel on the fire. People don’t remember the end results of the ‘68 riots. A lot of those people were charged with a number of major crimes.

      These people stand to charged with sedition, all in the same day that Republicans lost control of the Senate.

      Most of my phone numbers have D.C. exchanges, so I get emergency messages from the city. The city is under lockdown and people are being told that, as of 3PM, the government is telling people to stay off the streets or face the military. One message said that if you can’t get home, go to UDC, which, I assume, is offering shelter for bystanders. Trump needs to be charged with treason.

      Along with the National Guard, member of all federal law enforcement are at the Capitol. This includes the Secret Service, Capitol Police, the US Marshall Service, and all of those agencies that don’t have names.

      Another amazing thing is that people committing insurrection probably Diane realise that the city has miles of underground tunnels. Members of the House and Senate have been evacuated and are in a non-disclosed location.

      I wonder if OT ventured out to join in on the assault. 😎

      MPD has deployed choppers and placed snipers on buildings in the area. When the National Guard begins, it’s gonna get ugly. The military could be holding them back.

      I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.

      These “peaceful protesters” will be facing charges of sedition, punishable by death.

      I worked the World Bank riots. I had to walk through streets filled with tear gas and flash my badge to get through Police barricades to get to my office. I then had to work, as a GS14, processing arrests through the entire night, and that didn’t even involve an assault on a federal building.

      This is the first time that the Capitol has been breached since 1814, during the assault by British soldiers during the War of 1812.

      Somehow, when Trump set to reinstate death by finding squad, I’m thinking he didn’t exist that the first potential people who will get the honour will be his supporters.

      If McConnell had juevos, he would demand the immediate resignation of Trump. Unfortunately, he is a political eunuch.

      Look, I do not support this in any fashion.

      That said…

      It’s very interesting how some of you leap to the conclusion that this is a riot while calling it racist to say the same thing when BLM/Antifa were burning car lots and other businesses in Kenosha. That is just interesting. The ease with which some of you can fool yourselves.

      I won’t say this isn’t a riot as I don’t really know what’s going on in there but from the pictures of people putting their feet up in some politicians desk, I would like to at least hope that these people just wanted to be heard and didn’t destroy things. No barracades don’t count, just ask BLM. The only person who I know of who’s been shot so far was a Trump supporter but for some reason there hasn’t been a day of mourning announced.

      I also seem to remember certain lefties who got quite upset that the “Feds” were defending federal property in Oregon. Now we have Feds defending federal property in DC and they are heroes. I feel exactly as I always have about the Federal law enforcement agents involved but I don’t feel that certain other posters are as consistent. At some point the government does have a right to defend itself.

      I agree that this has been a shock and that it is disheartening but dangit the prejudice and hatred surely runs both ways. I’m against all violence. Unlike many here I will happily condemn any violence or destruction of property done today in the name of protesting election results. People who damaged things or used or threatened violence should be harshly prosecuted but if all you have is a guy unlawfully sitting at a desk well then I’m very sorry but a free society does not charge people with sedition for being a part of a mob and then taking a selfie at a desk.

      Jbear you are trying to distract from it, so in that way you are supporting it. THEY STORMED THE CAPITAL DURING A JOINT SESSION OF CONGRESS!!!!!!! AT THE DIRECTION OF THE PRESIDENT! SHEESH! You need to check your sheet. I don’t care what you call it. Its horrible. Its a travesty. Its an attack on Democracy. Stop making excuses and defending this craziness. This is a threat to our democratic system. The word riot doesn’t do it justice. Its much worse than that.

      It’s the hypocrisy that burns me. I have to sit back and take it when it’s supposedly about racial justice or when the orange man is sitting in the oval office but the minute Uncle Joe is sitting in the oval office, or people who may support the orange man are involved then the stormtroopers should go in with guns blazing. The outrage, the partisanship…. One side pure good, the other pure evil…. it’s bullshit.

      Why is that? Because you view the people protesting now as evil people. Because you don’t understand them and you don’t respect individual liberty. But when there was a racial justice cause to get behind it’s a completely different story. Well that’s for a good cause. Well some of these people likely believe what they’re doing is for a good cause too. So in reality all you’re doing is defending the people who agree with you. You aren’t standing on any principle whatsoever. So long as you agree with the protesters you’ll do mental gymnastics to figure out how to defend whatever they’re doing. When people you don’t agree with do the same thing you’ll do the mental gymnastics backwards until you can hash out a reasonable sounding argument as to why these guys need to be sent to the gulag or worse.

      I stand on principle. Any person who uses or threatens physical violence or destroys property should be dealt with accordingly. You don’t make special rules for different groups.

      On that note…. I’ll hold my breath until we get a national day of mourning for the dead Trumper.
      My funeral will be next tuesday.

      It’s not a riot. It’s an insurrection attempt. Words spoken by Bush just minutes ago.

      Personally, I’m hoping so see a strong military action against these groups. I’ve got popcorn and ice cream in hand.

      I haven’t had this much fun such watching Janet Reno or the FBI to blast the living shit out of David Koresh. Janet Reno had the balls to use deadly force against a cult. Show me a single Trump person that would dare to blast the shit out of a cult. There isn’t one.

      Federal Intelligence lists White Supremacists as a domestic terrorist threat. Those same agencies do not include BLM, or any of the left wing groups in the list of Domestic Terrorists. As mentioned by many sources, some people will be spending a very long time in federal prison for their actions. Anyone with any knowledge of the intelligence community can attest that they will know the people to go after.

      Trump, in the meantime is pouring fuel in the fire. For all intents and purposes, Pence is currently acting a Commander in Chief. If he were to invoke the 25th Amendment, he would succeed.

      These are not radical leftists speaking out. Mitt Romney is referring to this as an insurgency to placate the ego of a megalomaniac. (I couldn’t remember the exact quote, but he did use the term insurgency. These are hard core Republicans sounding out list against Trump. This is not Bobby Seale and the Black Panthers. These are Democrats and same Republicans, with a lot of them being in the right side of the aisle, not the left.

      Four years ago, you had some angry women match on Washington using Pussy Hats. It was a proper user of the First Amendment. In this election, you have armed wannabe 4F GI Joe rejects who think they know what combat looks like.

      Any of my friends who returned from Vietnam did not have fond memories of combat. A few were very traumatised by the role they had in dropping napalm on villages of old people, women and children. None of these pseudo-soldiers would last five minutes if deployed to a page like Vietnam. If any of those people were present a as allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, they would’ve shit themselves. My uncle spent eighteen months in a hospital after his landing vehicle was sunk before reaching shore. These current nancy boys would curl up in fetal position and pray for a quick death.

      But when BLM and Antifa

      I’m sorry, but I have to correct you on one point. I will use an example that you may be able to accept.

      First, yes, BLM is a group.

      Second, ANTIFA is not a group. It is a philosophy. Should this philosophy be embraced by a group, then you may correctly claim it as a group.

      This is my comparison. Marxism is a philosophy as envisioned by Karl Marx. It was not a group. It was a philosophy. When Vladimir Lenin embraced Marxism (prior to warming the philosophy to suit his needs, he was part of a group of people who used Marxist philosophy and turned it into a group of real people, in a real group, that had real infrastructure and brought the Communist Party into Russia in revolt of the Russian Monarchy. Karl Marx was not riding shotgun with Lenin and Stalin. They used his philosophy.

      Like Marxism, ANTIFA is a philosophy. It is not an organisation or political party, or even a group of activists.

      You must be able to discern true physical groups with structure and hierarchy, and separate them from the philosophical ideas that these groups use to create their doctrine.

      Here’s one more. Christianity is a set of beliefs. The Catholic Church is an organisation that processes the beliefs of Christianity.

      Nah, compared to this, Nixon had integrity. He was shown the fit and he took it, after being told by Republican legislators that it was time to go.

      Ultimately, in January 20th, Biden will be President, and they will control the house and Senate.

      As insurrections go, the Trumpers and Boi groups are pretty lame. Even the Middle East managed a seven day war once. Those groups were pwn’ed (gamer speak) by the DC Police and a few federal agencies. 😂 I really hope they don’t attempt an actual war. They would run out of Pampers from shitting themselves before the first air assault. That was piss poor on a scale that make the old Iraqi SCUD missiles look like a device with laser accuracy. (I could honestly see these people fucking up and attacking Taiwan when their target was Thailand. Not many brain cells amongst those dudes.)

      Nice, making my point again?

      There is a lot of other interesting stuff in that post but too much to unpack. I agree with a few things you say but a few quick points.

      I think you’re wrong about these people being heavily armed. It’s DC so I doubt there were any honestly. I know you have a certain image of these people in your mind and they have lots of guns, probably believe in…. *gulp…. God. They’re White supremacists, etc, etc, etc…

      It’s exactly what I’m saying here.

      The woman who was killed by police was an unarmed 15 year Air Force Veteran who may or may not be nuts and believe everything she hears. These people deserve the same respect you’d give a college student who decides to dress in black and break windows at the very least.

      I do believe that is a fact borne out by documented evidence. The only thing still open to interpretation is what was the intent of starting illegal investigations and then leaking them to the press and who understood the slippery slope of what they were doing. It’s pretty clear that Loretta Lynch understood this and I doubt the leak came from her.

      I honestly believe that some time in the future even you will admit that this should never happen and steps should be taken to ensure that it doesn’t. Even if you won’t admit it to me you’ll admit it to somebody.

      Thats because again you’ve got your prejudices mixed up with reality. These people did not have weapons or start a war. I disagree with calling this an insurrection.

      I have yet to hear of any damage whatsoever. There may be some but I wonder what kind of damage you might expect from an insurrection that actually took control of the capital building for a short time. I wonder if you think BLM/anti Trump protesters who were say, protesting Trumps election had he won, would walk the halls of congress without lighting fires and busting up the furniture.

      I also wonder how you’d feel about BLM/Anti Trumpers being shot by police for “peacefully” forcing their way in somewhere they shouldn’t be.

      I’m being fucking serious. You guys have your heads up your asses.

      You’re a real ass. I do not believe in conspiracy theories. This however is documented. I’m talking specifically about the politicization and the LEAK that came directly from a very high level after a meeting that Obama attended where it was discussed. Maybe it was just a whole lot of prejudiced Trump hating individuals independently breaking laws and leaking investigations for political reasons but it still shouldn’t happen.

      That’s just it isn’t it? Everybody brings their own bigotry to every situation. But I heard that 4 protesters were killed. Each Cop had their own perspective and their own prejudices, some pulled triggers, some did not. Neither of us knows if BLM would have torched the capital building in a similar situation or if there would have been more force used against them but I’d say the two groups of protesters have more in common than many want to admit.

      Also since Verge and Fire are going to dishonestly call me a Trumper no matter what I say I’ll just tell you that I think Trump is responsible for this. This is on him. I think most of these protesters were mostly regular people who got caught up in the chaos.

      Right now I’m hoping that this whole tragedy turns out to be the very best possible outcome for fiscal conservatives in that, Trump may now be completely discredited and slink off to his mansion to die in disgrace. The last thing any liberty minded, fiscal conservative wanted was to have Trump exerting his sway over the Republican party for another 4 years at least. Whether he’s removed from office or not, the party may at least, finally get some distance from Trump and I hope will take the opportunity to finally morph into an actual “change” party. We’re gonna need some big time change after all the “I’m really a Republican” socialists muck everything up for the next few years.

      JBear, its not about damage. Its about the threat, the attack. They attacked the Congress in session. There are guys on the floor of Congress pointing guns and shooting people who are trying to break in and capture our Congress while they are counting the electoral votes! Why can’t you understand the magnitude of this situation? I can only guess that you are feeling defensive as a conservative that you are somehow having to defend yourself. Well you didn’t do this. This isn’t about liberal vs. conservative. It was an attack on our nation. You have to realize this and come to grips with it.

      As far as I’ve seen only one was from a gunshot from armed forces protecting the Capitol. She was shot trying to break in where members of Congress were sheltered. She deserved what she got and if the Capitol police force was competent, there should have been more like her. They were terrorists attacking a governing body of our country.

      I think you’re wrong about these people being heavily armed. It’s DC so I doubt there were any honestly.



      @jbear
      I figured I would just address a couple things in one post, trying to keep the responses concise.

      In this first point, there could’ve been and probably were a great number of heavily armed people there. I don’t fault anyone for not being aware of this. Just because the District has very strict control of firearms, it’s not like it’s the walled city of Old Jerusalem. Prior to Virginia taking their tiny piece back, where the Pentagon, and Arlington National Cemetery are, a well as National Airport, the city was ten miles x ten miles in size. Most people, even ones who travel to the city, rarely see anything other than Northwest, which is the only quadrant of the city most people ever see. Southeast and Anacostia, among other places are ghetto and predominantly not safe to hang out, as that is where three majority of the violence is. Two points here. I used to go to a club not too far from the Navy Yard. (Most clubs that entertain the Goth crowd are in very bad neighbourhoods.) There were many times, at the end of the evening, where I would have to duck to avoid open gunfire between rival gangs. I had to stay that way until I reached my car. For the most part, gangs don’t really want to kill bystanders. It’s bad for local businesses. It doesn’t mean, though, that most of D.C. is safe to stroll through after sundown.

      A couple years ago, I saw in the local news that the Mayor of Tampa, or something to that effect, was upset because as of April there had been fourteen murders, which was double from the year before. In D.C., fourteen murders mean it is still the first week in January. Afaik, D.C., a 100 square miles total, averages around 600+ murders per year.

      When I was working at the OPMG in L’Enfant Plaza, I would have to drive I-295, which turns into the BW Parkway. It skirts Southeast D.C. for a few miles. Pretty much every evening I would hear gunfire coming from the neighbourhoods. There is no equivalent, imho, in Florida that rivals the daily violence in D.C. and I doubt there ever will be.

      When I was at the DoJ, I’dI took the Metro, I would usually get off at Judiciary’s Square. That station, located by MPD and D.C. Superior Court. The Law Enforcement Memorial is there, listing fallen officers. There is also a large statue. It is made from the melted down remnants of a vast number of guns received during times when the city offers trade-in “periods” where you can turn in a gun, no questions asked, and depending upon the promotion, the pain trying in the gun usually gets cash or a pair of expensive sneakers.

      TLDR: D.C. is filled with tons of weapons, including some with full-auto. Yeah, when people are arrested the penalties are harsh, but there is no lack of guns in the city.

      These people deserve the same respect you’d give a college student who decides to dress in black and break windows at the very least.

      While no death is ever an acceptable result off any protest, so I’m not validating any killings, (The death toll is now up to five, with a Capitol Police Officer now added to the list), what happened yesterday was not a protest, peaceful or otherwise. There is no doubt that this was an insurrection, Ava the first breach of the Capitol Building since the War of 1812. When people storm the building where the legislature is holding a joint session to declare the winter of the election, and their goal was to disrupt that process, that is an insurrection, and not a protest. Even more disgusting is that a flag of the Confederacy was inside the Capitol Building. This is an action that did not even occur during the Civil War. (Fortunately I had no family in this country during the Civil War. I didn’t even have any family on this continent at that time. Regardless, the War ended about 150 years ago. It’s time that the Confederacy amuses they lost and get rid of the flags. It is a crime to possess any item with a swastika in Germany. It’s about time this country tries to be a bit more like Germany.

      All that stuff at the Capital

      The city is the Nation’s Capital. The building is The Capitol. 😎 (It’s official babe is actually longer.)

      They attacked the Congress in session.

      This is the main difference here, and why there are as many Republicans as Democrats who are calling this, correctly, an insurrection. It was an act of Domestic Terrorism committed within the seat of the legislature. I can’t find anyone, in either side of the aisle, justifying this assault on the Capitol. Colin Powell is stating that. Dick Cheney and his daughter are both saying the same thing. Last I checked, you can’t get more Republican than Dick Cheney. (That’s standard Republican, as opposed to this new group of Trumpers, who, in my opinion, are not true Republicans. (One short example: Trump is big on levying tariffs. That’s a Democrat thing. Fiscal Conservative Republicans have always been against tariffs, as the cost is paid by the company buying the products, and then that cost is passed down into US consumers.)

      At least wet know what Trump will be doing for the next two weeks. He’ll probably be busy signing a few thousand Pardons. 😎

      I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.

      I typed too much in the above post to be concerned with typos. This due is too buggy to attempt an edit, so I’m just adding this codicil to mention that I think the few areas that have typos can be figured out without edit. 😎
