Looking at how these people are dressed and acting, it seems like a replay of the Days of Rage in '69.
or the beer hall putsch
My thoughts exactly. Deeply disturbing.

I was more referencing how democrats hate leftists more than republicans, but I agree it would be great to have them disunited.
Wait, that makes no sense. My understanding is that socialists control the Democratic Party and that Joe Biden is the most left-wing candidate ever.

Disgraceful statement from Trump just now. What a piece of shit.

How does the fascist caucus (Cruz et al) spin this to try to avoid blame?

NBC reporting one person shot within the Capitol by law enforcement. Jeez.
They should have shot dozens of them by now. This is why I have no trust in cops.
White privilege of the highest order on full display .

Probably by playing the victim, just like Trump.

This is quite depressing. We are living in dark days.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you. I just mean Cruz et al might try to spin today's events as "peaceful" protest in the interest of election "fairness". I don't think they can avoid blame for today's mess though.

Yup. I've seen some horseshit that these guys have hammer and sickle tattoos. They all love to talk about 2A and 1776 and all that until their side actually does it, and then "Oh my! It's not us!" Own it, assholes.

Apparently, their aim is to occupy the Capitol thru the night. Maybe they figure if the 6 January confirmation of the EC votes passes, the election is void?

The problem is that Cruz and all the other swine who want to run in 2024 are courting these fascists, so they can't fully condemn them. But it's a serious problem to be seen as with them. So they're in a tough spot, ambition-wise.
