We are effectively at war with these swine.

 

Why the hell would we even consider giving any credence to the enemy's propraganda?

 

I still don't see how "here's what the enemy is saying in their propaganda" = "giving credence to their propaganda".

Because they never say anything new that changes things.

If you want to understand the white supremacist GOP you’d be better served by looking at meta analysis’ of what is going on in context instead of a play by play of everything they say and look at what they’re doing with what they are saying and who they are trying to reach and how.

I always feel like too much emphasis is put on the few thousand knuckleheads who went into the capitol building and not enough is put on the reason they were there in the first place.

 

The scandal is that Trump wouldn't stop trying to push the idea that the election was a fraud, and he was willing to take it to such extremes. Stay laser focused on that.

 

Keeping the attention and blame on the dumb idiots who actually went into the building is a losing strategy. It's too easy to write them off as goofballs... they aren't the point. The big picture is the point. The big picture is what's so dangerous. If every future election is going to feature the losers never giving up and claiming fraud with zero evidence, this country is done. That's not hyperbole. That's the end. Especially since it's now been proven that people will just accept it as fact.

 

The fact that the main voices of the right wing are so willing to go along with all of this as if it was just politics as normal and so many of their supporters are following right along is what is truly frightening. Not the 500 goofballs in funny outfits.

 

Was the actual act of those people going into the Capitol as bad as 9/11 or Pearl Harbor? No. Was the losing candidate for President riling his base into a froth because he refused to admit he lost and was willing to lie about it for months as bad as those two things? Yes. Yes it is. 100% yes.

This is absolutely correct.

 

The Capitol Insurrection was the outgrowth of the VASTLY more important and more chilling failed coup attempt.

It’s this.

 

I think guys like McConnell and his ilk have tolerated useful idiots for too long and there’s nobody that can really control the mob. Trump gets booed when he talks about getting vaccinated / boosted, there’s no ACTUAL leader, it’s just a congealed mass of id. That “works” when you have someone like Cheney who can get things done while he’s stroking his war hard on. I’m not saying that’s GOOD; in fact it’s very bad. But someone like him or McConnell have no interest in removing the veneer of a functional government, they know that’s necessary. Trump does not, MTG does not, Hawley does not, etc., etc., etc. They’re dogs chasing cars.

Both pale in comparison to kids' schooling moving online - Nate Silver, probably

Now see, CSPAN posting this as completely dry news is where you guys should really be getting pissed off about needless amplification of the enemy.
