So I saw they're leaving shutting Gallery Place tomorrow but leaving L'Enfant Plaza open. Kind of baffling if they're not at least allowing internal transfers at Gallery Place, even if they're not letting people in or out there.

I honestly think it is even more important than COVID for Biden to fight aggressively against this tide of American flavor of fascism that has been allowed to flourish under Trump. The DOJ and FBI needs to devote massive resources to this. 

The first order of business should be to audit every single person with security clearance, specifically their online activity.  They also need to set up a division specifically to root out white supremacism in state and local law enforcement. There needs to be thousands of people devoted to monitoring online activity where this shit festers and spreads.

I have to imagine that some in crowd that weren’t armed and didn’t have zip cuffs, were there for more peaceful protesting and putting pressure on elected officials to “do the right thing”. They didn’t chant to hurt or kill anyone. 
 

I do think any people in the crowd that fit that should have not followed the crowd into the capital building when the armed and angry group started rushing in. 
 

But those that did stay with the pack, I wonder how they would have reacted had the armed among them had been able to reach elected officials and their staff and began beating or executing them in a big public show of “taking their government back”. Would they step in to stop the systematic executions, spoke up against it, or even chose that time to leave after somebody like Pelosi or AOC was shot in head, decapitated, or hung.

People who are hungry, people who are out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made of. FDR

 

That is absolutely true, but a non-insignigicant amount of the authoritarian sentiment in the results came from those who are most decidedly NOT those people.

Most would have gone along, even if they felt uncomfortable or repulsed. Mob behaviour is a powerful thing.

There were two types of people there. The hardcore terrorists and the "Disneyland Insurrectionists" eg the people who were planning to go to an indian gaming casino while they were on vacation.

Speaker says retired Lt Gen Russel Honoré will lead probe following Trump riot

This seems like a pretty fucking big deal. I get the impression there is some pretty damning evidence.

lets do it

We already have examples of exactly the opposite with the “Thank you, but fuck you” police officer’s story.

 

There absolutely were people in their with murderous intentions, but the vast majority of the people never even attempted to go inside the Capitol. They had dumb intentions, but not criminal intentions. You can even see a bit of this from some of the people who made it inside and then seem confused by what to do next and eventually begin leaving when people get shot. I don’t think most would have gone along with actual assassinations, but you don’t need that many people to over power a bunch of gray hairs and their young staffers.

 

But it’s actually this piece of the puzzle that made it all the more dangerous because the murder troop was blended in with the tourists. 


It could have been unimaginably bad. Leaves me with such a gross feeling.

It would be eternally helpful if some of the GOP was on board with this.. a united front to expel the really toxic members, but again, would they be willing to do so even as it tarnishes the GOP..... We now know, the truth and evidence mean nothing to the base of the accused.. the propaganda machine will go into overdrive (if it hasnt already).

 

Not sure if the “normal” Gop sees this as an “enemy of my enemy” scenario

I’ve been in several situations like parties or gatherings where my friends and I instantly noped the fuck out when shit went pear shaped.  The fists start flying and we start backing away.  It’s not that fucking hard.  There are clear and obvious moments when things have gone too far for reasonable people, and that’s several fences and barricades away from breaking glass at the capitol.  Anyone who was in, or on the building can fuck right off.

That’s waaaaaaaaaaaay harder than people make it out to be.  Bitch had a better chance of getting a pardon than a mental defense.

CNN's Chris Cuomo had a truly bizarre interview with the attorney for the "QAnon Shaman," arrested for his alleged participation in the Capitol riots.



 

 

Why is cnn allowing these pleas for pardons on their show?

 

(The answer is because they are basically republican)

The internal report, which does not appear to have been shared widely with other agencies, was among the flags that experts say should have alerted officials to the risks on Jan. 6.
