"Nobody leaves until we get what we want."

Targeted attacks on elected officials. Trump's supporters are straight up terrorists.
According to Craig, they're "Antifa".

But according to Trump, they're patriots, and he wuvs, wuvs, wuvs them to pieces, bless their little hearts!

So Craig disagrees with Trump — for the first time ever, I'd think.

Antifa!

They cheered and sang, and they talked about armed revolt. They posed for pictures and wore colonial-era costumes, and they laughed when they found out a mob breached the U.S. Capitol Building.
The roughly 500 supporters of President Donald Trump that gathered outside Minnesota's fenced-off State Capitol on Wednesday mixed violent rhetoric with jubilation at a four-hour rally that later went to the governor's residence amid chaos in Washington, D.C.

"Now you know why Trump wanted us there!" said Alley Waterbury, a local Republican Party leader from Woodbury who emceed the rally. "My god you guys, we are going to fight, we are going to go down, there's going to be casualties. I'll be the first casualty, I do not care."

Organizers from the group Hold The Line dubbed the event "Storm The Capitol," though they warned on Facebook that actually breaching the fence would result in arrests. Instead, they saved their energy for talk of armed revolution and charges of treason for those who stood in Trump's way.

"This is 1776 … the time for talk is over," one man said. "Be on the right side of history because we are about to make it."

25 police personnel reported injured thus far.
Thank god this destructive mob of white trash amebas was not a group of black or middle eastern people.

The major causality count (not 'injured' w a superficial soft tissue injury) would have been quite different.

But let's definitely focus on the white police officers who are 'injured' (only one reportedly severe enough to go the hospital unlike some one say Mr Blake).

White privilege!

Is it too late to vote 'yes' to this question?

Who knew that so many people would attempt an insurrection for Donald F*****g Trump.

media is reporting that Josh Hawley sent out a fund-raising letter in the middle of the Capital Chaos.

and this from the editorial page of the Kansas City Star:

No one other than President Donald Trump himself is more responsible for Wednesday’s coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol than one Joshua David Hawley, the 41-year-old junior senator from Missouri, who put out a fundraising appeal while the siege was underway.

This, Sen. Hawley, is what law-breaking and destruction look like. This is what mobs do. This is not a protest, but a riot. One woman was shot and has died, The Washington Post reported, while lawmakers were sheltering in place.

"Maybe it was a bad idea to change how we ran a presidential election more or less without democratic input, between consent decrees and lawfare, COVID shift to mail-ins, and Zuck/oligarch process engineering, who could have predicted this would lead to people rejecting results."
You do realize, of course, that YOU had the same right to vote as everyone else, right? You were not disenfranchised in any way, shape or form. Trump's turnout was ALSO up, based on the rules imposed by the states in the worst viral pandemic we have had for a century. The ability enabled by states to provide well-regulated mail-in voting saved many, many lives.

There were a couple thousand at the Capitol today. That’s 0.0006% of the population.

The answer to the question posed in the thread title is, obviously, YES.

Yes, he certainly did.

The next question, then, is: will Trump and his enablers face consequences for what he/they has/have done?

At a minimum, the people “starring” in the main viral pictures (the shaman guy, the people kicking back in office chairs, the guy at the head of the senate floor, etc.) need to be made examples out of. Several years in federal prison.

People pushing past guards. People breaking in the windows and climbing through, on camera, need to receive loooooooong prison terms.

The guy with the idiotic grin carrying the podium... he needs to spend some serious time in prison.

This isn't some fraternity prank, my man.

After the sh1tshow we had today, it's amazing how quickly the Congressional Republicans found some spines. Four years too late, but, it's actually possible that Trump's legacy after all is said and done will be to get everyone to turn on him and bring back the decades-long-departed idea of bipartisanship to the Republican Party.

Well, one can hope.

The absolute gall of Democratic politicians railing against the riots at the capital today while looking away as their constituents burned down our cities, looted our stores, killed and injured our police. How can anyone be surprised that the fire they've thrown gasoline on finally started to burn.
When HRC threw out the term "deplorable," she was thinking of you.

And she nailed it.

National news actively talking
It is absolutely appropriate and necessary. The 25th SHOULD be invoked asap. America would be well-served by a two-week Pence presidency to help transition from riotous ridiculousness to professionalism and competence.

So we are in agreement then: The 'rules' 'imposed' by the states to change voting methods during the pandemic were unconstitutional. See this is what Barr, when he rebuked Blitzer, meant when he said mail in voting was playing with fire.

mail-in voting saved many, many lives.
Absolute bullshit.
