Some folks take great pride in their ignorance and go out of their way to flaunt it, even to exaggerate it. They like to show it off like they are wearing a lair of the latest Air Jordans. I don't get

You are talking about folks that were taking selfies, some with their company IDs hanging from their necks. Burner phones to cover their tracks?  I'm surprised they didn't order delivered pizzas

Or those that push a narrative that minorities would be excluded from voting if there were Voter ID laws..... are minorities really too stupid to get photo ID's?   ...    ...

 

When the officials writing and passing such laws state clearly in plain English that their intent is to exclude minorities from voting, then yeah.... you have to be pretty damn dumb as well as a bigoted asshole to believe otherwise.

You just love the narrative that fascism is good for you, the wealth will trickle down any day now, huh

Why do you believe that?

When you start with a fixed result ("Democrats are bad") then the process to justify it becomes increasingly unrealistic. This is even more true in science than in politics

As opposed to those who believe that the government should redistribute wealth rather than promote opportunity through education to enable the less capable can achieve prosperity? 

We are already redistributing wealth.  Have been for decades.

It's flowing upward, instead of trickling down.

The best Americans need it.

So, they get it.

When our billionaires make the majority of their money by rent seeking by purchasing governmental decisions aiding and abetting their get richer schemes, then we see the dangers of capitalism merged with poor oversight.

A correction is needed, and the GOP needs to suffer until it begins to reflect the needs and wants of the people.

Dealing in disinformation, science denial and focusing the redistribution of wealth on unequal basis is possible only via the disingenuous use of issue politics, gerrymandering and voter suppression.

This is how democracies fail and disasters are created. QU hates Americans and wants us to be convinced that’s because the American people don’t deserve the fruits of their labor. It’s a road to ruin and ignominy which in the short run benefits him, so he’s onboard.

It's not necessarily stupid, as in low IQ. Many people who are "smart" in the traditional sense of intelligence are Trumpers.

But they're mean-spirited, they want others to suffer and they believe that others... and possibly themselves... SHOULD suffer, as part of the way they want the universe to work.

The American Dream, keeping up with the Joneses, works just as well by hammering the Joneses down. -THAT- is what they want. And of course, an America where brown-skinned people are all menials is part of the 'right way' the universe is supposed to work. All rolls up in the same rug.

The single common denominator for Trumpers and ordinary Republicans that are still on the bus... they fucking HATE-HATE-HATE liberals and Democrats. They hate them so bad that talk of killing them raises a smile, not a moral objection. Look at AGITC, one of the more rational Republicans we've had as a member of this august forum, who actually left because his conscious bothered him... hated liberals -and- blamed them for his hatred, and could not accept the fact that this is an irrational and artificial point of view. I give him full credit for being honest about his opinions though. Then look at Quoddy and SoreAss and JerkZ etc etc, they are motivated by a spoon-fed hatred that they cannot perceive any more than fish are aware of water.

Most of them are indeed pretty goddam dumb. But it isn't stupidity that makes them Trumpers. It's meanness (or sadism if you prefer) and hatred.

Nailed it.  Every person I know in person who supports Republican policy seems to enjoy watching people suffer and they brag about it.  Their mind set is all about fighting, struggle, and "winning".  That's why they are all gun nuts preparing to be "patriots" when the day comes.  Its non-stop.  They support the cops because they make people suffer (until the cops make them suffer, then they scream about the constitution).  They truly are a masochistic/sadistic bunch.

Kevin McCarthy Proposes Removing January 6th from Month of January

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Borowitz Report)—In a controversial proposal that has raised eyebrows among political observers, the House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, is urging that January 6th be removed from the month of January.

“There’s been a lot of disagreement over whether January 6th is actually a real day in the month of January,” McCarthy said. “The American people want us to move on.”

Noting that “many months get by with just thirty days in them,” McCarthy asked why “January should be any different.”

 

At the United States Senate, Ron Johnson, of Wisconsin, questioned whether January 6th “ever existed,” and suggested that the date might have been a “hoax.”

“If you ask a member of Antifa whether January has a date in it called the sixth, I guarantee you that he or she will say it does,” he said. “I don’t see why we should continue to recognize a fake date that was made up by Antifa.”

The barrel folds/hinges down exposing the back end of the barrel, to insert the shells.  Usually holds 2 shots.

As opposed to a pump-action or semi-auto.

It doesn't have a clip either.*

Man charged with bringing molotov cocktails to Capitol on Jan. 6 has Texas militia ties, contacted Ted Cruz’s office, court papers allege

An Alabama man charged with bringing five loaded firearms and 11 molotov cocktails with napalm-like properties to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 approached Sen. Ted Cruz’s Washington home and office weeks earlier to discuss “election fraud” and previously joined an armed-citizen camp at the Texas border, new court filings alleged Monday.

The new U.S. allegations came in a federal judge’s ruling ordering the continued detention of Lonnie Leroy Coffman, of Falkville, Ala., citing evidence that he had potential plans to coordinate with others and was prepared for political violence.

The 71-year-old Army veteran is awaiting trial on charges of possessing some of the deadliest unregistered weapons and explosives on the day of the riots that breached the Capitol, led to assaults on nearly 140 police officers and forced the evacuation of Congress.

Coffman was arrested by happenstance on Jan. 6, according to charging papers, after police spotted weapons in his red pickup truck while searching an area of Capitol Hill that had been sealed off because unexploded pipe bombs had been reported near Republican and Democratic party headquarters minutes before the mob assault began, at about 1 p.m.

Coffman kept additional firearms, improvised explosives and papers in his home related to a second armed group, the judge said. A list he kept of a federal judge and Democratic lawmakers, combined with other evidence, “raises serious concerns about Mr. Coffman’s desire and ability to engage in politically motivated violence” and shows that he poses too great a risk of flight and public dangerousness to free him, the opinion concluded.

Prosecutors alleged that the 11 jars were made with gasoline and melted plastic foam to produce a dangerous “napalm-like” explosion of sticky, flammable liquid.

A tracking device in Coffman’s GMC truck also showed that on Dec. 11 he drove around the U.S. Capitol and attempted to drive to Cruz’s D.C.-area residence, prosecutors said, according to the judge. That same day, Coffman called Cruz’s Senate office.

Staffers for the Texas Republican concluded that Coffman “did not seem threatening,” but seemed “unbalanced” or “not 100% there” and deemed his comments “odd enough to record,” Capitol Police noted, according to the ruling.

Office notes of Coffman’s call stated: “Man says that he went to [Senator Cruz’s] DC home to visit him with no answer at the door, and then called to try to arrange a meeting with him over the phone. Directed him to the scheduler’s email address. He is also looking for contact info for S. Hannity, M. Levin, and R. Limbaugh,” the judge’s ruling said, referring to conservative commentators Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh.

A Cruz aide also noted that Coffman seemed “to be coming from the ‘friend’ angle in wanting to . . . help with the election fraud he saw,” according to the filing.

Videos Contradict State Lawmaker’s Claim He Left Capitol While It Was ‘Still Peaceful’

Pennsylvania state Sen. Doug Mastriano, whose campaign spent thousands on buses to ferry supporters to D.C. for the rally that led to the attack, said after the riot that he did not enter the Capitol, walk on its steps or go beyond police lines; and that he left the area with his wife “when it was apparent that this was no longer a peaceful protest.” He released a statement at the time condemning the violence and calling for those who broke the law to be prosecuted.

But in videos analyzed by members of the online “Sedition Hunters” community and posted on social media over the weekend, Mastriano and his wife appeared to be in a crowd as it breached a police line. Mastriano was wearing one of his campaign hats and a dark-green scarf on the day.

The video shows people moving forward as a man picks up and throws away the police barricades. Another image shows the couple on the northwest lawn.

It is worth noting, due to COVID restrictions, there were no public tours of the Capitol.  These tours were privately arranged.

34 House Democrats call for investigation into Jan. 5 tours by fellow members ahead of attack

Yes, I know this is from January.  I've not found anything more recent.  But, do note this part - 

Visitors, official tour groups and almost anyone without a congressional ID have been barred from the Capitol since mid-March, when the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic led congressional leaders to partially close the usually public building.

But members of Congress have been disregarding those strictures to bring in families and friends for small private tours for months, and Capitol Police stationed at entrances typically don’t challenge lawmakers to enforce rules.

I guess you haven’t been paying attention. Yes, some of those arrested said they weren’t guilty as they left their guns at home. Due to DC laws. Seems that the little bit of pre-planning coordination that was done (illegally of course) told them to leave the guns at home.

Yuge success. Everyone is saying it. The homicide rate many times the national average proves it!

 

Quote

 

In 2020, homicides in D.C. hit a 16-year high. If current trends continue, 2021 could be even deadlier.

 

D.C. Police data reports a 43% increase in homicides from the same time last year, with 2021 totaling 63 as of April 28, compared to 44 on this date in 2020.

 

I think failing to bring guns is more a sign that these nincomcoupers don't understand that the nature of government is force and a real coup is going to involve lots of guns and killing, not selectively obeying only gun laws while violating lots of other laws.

Maybe.

Or maybe, the ones who were the front-line fighters were ordered by their leaders to NOT bring guns, because those same leaders were colluding with high-level Republicans to limit the deaths. It's widely and credibly reported that the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys and their elk consulted with Team R! Congresscritters and Trumpettes in the weeks before Jan 6th

A lot of news articles I can uncover now refer back to the New York Times

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/05/us/politics/trump-proud-boys-capitol-riot.html

which is unfortunately paywalled, but basically says the FBI has released info that they are 6 documented conversations with "Proud Boys" leaders and "the White House" in the days immediately before Jan 6th

"...    ... A member of the Proud Boys was in contact with someone in former President Donald Trump's White House in the days leading up to the violent Jan. 6 insurrection, according to an FBI official.

The FBI made the discovery after obtaining cellphone data following the January attack on the U.S. Capitol. An anonymous official told The New York Times the data showed that a member of the violent pro-Trump street gang contacted a White House staffer before the attack.
